“For our new members, especially those who were present for our VERY raucous meeting in August, I urge you to take the time and come and see another side of our group—we really can be very pleasant!” wrote Joanne Masopust, promoting Fell’s Point Community Organization’s Evening of Gratitude.

The Baltimore Guide was very pleasantly surprised to learn that one of its own, reporter Danielle Sweeney, was being honored at the event last Tuesday evening.

“You never really know what kind of press you’re going to get when you’re a community organization, or an outspoken president of a community organization,” said Masopust, who is president of FPCO. “Sometimes you get ignored in the media, too.”

Masopust noted that Sweeney, who has been writing for the Guide for about a year and a half, is “relatively new,” but has nevertheless “done an outstanding job reporting on issues that aren’t easy to report on.”

Those issues?

Sweeney, like the rest of the Guide staff, and as is typical of a small publication, specializes in a little bit of everything—features and news. However, she has demonstrated a clear knack for covering quality-of-life issues, including a series of articles on vagrancy and drunkenness along the upper S. Broadway corridor, problems which spill into and include the Patterson Park area and Canton as well.

She has written extensively on the ongoing issues between Friendship Academy of Science and Technology students and the surrounding Canton neighborhood.
She has covered multiple chapters in the ongoing saga of liquor in Baltimore City, including the violations and subsequent closings of La Raza Cantina on Eastern Ave. near Patterson Park and Club Confetti on Bank St. near Broadway. Sweeney was also there when the Board of Liquor License Commissioners said “no” to another license in Fell’s Point, after testimony from FPCO and Masopust herself.

In addition to writing for the Guide, Sweeney holds down several freelance gigs—Masopust also complimented her work in the City Paper’s “City Folk” section. A fan of public transportation, Sweeney, who lives in Federal Hill, arrives at events and meetings in Fell’s Point, Canton and Highlandtown after substantial journeys that may include the bus, the water taxi, and her two feet.

After those events, which can last upwards of two hours, she repeats the trip in reverse to get home.

The Baltimore Guide is pleased that FPCO appreciates Sweeney’s work. We certainly do.

    Thank you so much for your coverage of this event that is very special to me . So much of what must be done by community organizations is about problems, conflicts, dissatisfaction, and that can be contentious. So when I became president of the Fell’s Point Community Organization, I decided that once a year we would say “Thank you” to people who contributed something positive to our community, and to focus on things in the community and our personal lives that we were grateful for. Really feeling gratitude can transform you. Years ago, a friend taught me that gratitude and depression cannot simultaneously exist. That lesson probably saved my life.

    So, I say thanks for covering this event, thanks for those who came to the event, and thanks to all who expressed gratitude for me and my leadership !
