The SoHy Co-op is encouraging small business lovers to support SoHy businesses by shopping small online on May 2. Small businesses make up the heart of the SoHy area and they are all being affected by the COVID pandemic. These businesses rely on support from local shoppers.

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Usually, there would be a ton of fun, local events for us all to check out. While that’s not the case this year, there are still plenty of ways that we can celebrate this day and continue to do what we can to protect our beautiful planet. This day. Every day. We invite you all to “plog” along today and share your #route1trashtag pics with us! More on these fun activities, below.
The Route 1 corridor is adding an additional real estate business to its directory. Keller Williams Capital Properties appears set to open up shop at 4806 Rhode Island Ave in Hyattsville – the former location of Fecosasa Thrift Store. (Two more familiar, perhaps, points of reference close to this address would be Pizzeria Paradiso and Streetcar 82 Brewing Co. 🙂 )
Hyattsville’s Dr. Qadira Huff’s been offering happy, helpful advice on ways to keep our mental and physical health strong long before the coronavirus was even on our radar.
Today, Dr. Huff shares another great tip with Route One Fun readers: Write a letter to your loved ones. ❤ Most of us remember how sweet it was to get a letter in the mail! Let’s do it again for those who we cannot be near but who are certainly in our hearts – and help the USPS while doing so, too!
