Council Member Amy Fowler

Hello Neighbors!
 
The inaugural Sugar House Backyard Bash was a huge success. It was great to have the community come together and celebrate everything we love about Sugar House. I'm already looking forward to next year’s Bash!
A big thanks to Waste Management, UTA and the Sugar House Community Council for all their help with this great celebration!
