Ahhhh, Friday in Hyattsville! Here are five things you need to know today:
1. Tonight’s the July Summer Jam at 6:30 at City Hall. This outdoor concert and barbecue promises to be a great time. Patch will be there with some giveaways and possibly a yellow Labrador. Come on over and say hi.
2. Speaking of Summer Jam, you can pick up your I Am Hyattsville t-shirt for just $10 at tonight’s event. The city sold out of size XL and XXL but they’re all stocked up now. Patch is considering buying one for editor Sarah Nemeth, and perhaps also one for a yellow Labrador.
3. The funeral for Leonard Raynod Smith-Matthews, who was slain June 30 at University Town Center, will be at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church in North Brentwood. Patch will be there (sans a yellow Labrador) and will have a report later on.
