Many folks know “Bird”, a gentleman of some character who has lived and worked in this neighborhood for some time.

His latest gig was the transporting of those who have needed him to get to the airport or doctor’s office or shopping, etc.

Back in October his truck was stolen, and concerned friends and neighbors have organized a fund drive for its replacement. If you are interested in helping the man who says “Holla” when he sees you, then go to www.indiegogo.com/projects/get-bird-another-suburban-holla-and-raise-5-000.

Nice is a perk for $30 gift you can also receive a gift certificate for $10 at Pagoda Cafe.
