Community Hot News

06/22… At our meeting last night we had elections and the current slate of officers was re-elected. We spent most of the meeting talking about the Association and its role in our neighborhood. We brainstormed about different methods for reaching out to the various groups in our community. How do we reach those people who are not members and make sure they hear about us?

We will continue exploring various options over the next few months… so if you have suggestions, ideas, comments, send them to us via email or snailmail… or give us a call. Find out how to reach us in the “Contact us” section.
