The 2020/2021 Ellicott Mall Reunion will have a special meaning this year. With the theme of “Together Through It All,” the annual gathering will feature fun for everyone. Most importantly gratitude for having made it through the peak of the pandemic last year and a chance to reminisce about the “good old days.”
The annual gathering will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in JFK Park. There will be music by DJ Ces so bring your dancing shoes! Free food, a bounce house for the kids, a Spade Tournament and more will also be featured.
The Ellicott Mall housing projects, just east of downtown, were eight residential high rises consisting of 590 apartments. They opened in 1959 on 14 acres of land and were torn down over four decades ago. Today the Ellicott Town Houses , which gave rise to home ownership – stand at the site – a far cry from the towering brick buildings .
The Ellicott Mall Reunion was started to celebrate the bonds of those who lived in the neighborhood. For more information, donations, questions or concerns, contact Darryl Scott at (716)382-8878 or Rita McKay at (716)435-1154.
