Please plan to join us at our first, in person, Annual General Membership meeting since 2019. We have done a good job of maintaining neighborhood activities, but we miss seeing and hearing from all of you.
We are desperately in need of new board members and fresh ideas for improving our neighborhood and preserving those things that we value about our neighborhood. Please consider becoming part of the board. We only meet once a month and your level of participation and what you participate in is entirely up to you.
- Refreshments – Meet Your Neighbors!!
- Nomination of Board Members
- Parks presentations on the Armory and local art installations
- Community Solar – Opportunities to Participate & Get your questions answered!
