We are sorry to report that we were unable to make this event happen. Some key volunteers were not available to coordinate the event. We will try again in 2020.
Planning is underway for the annual National Night Out and again the four Neighborhood Associations are going to work together to put on a great event. Several neighbors attended the kick off and we awarded the “Higher Caliber Award” for the 2018 event. The certificate is reproduced below. The 2019 National Night Out event will be held at the Jess Harben Cafeteria from 6-8PM. More information coming soon, but expect to meet your neighbors, have some some great food and learn how to reduce crime in our neighborhood.
Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting. We concluded the necessary business and elected a new board for the coming year.
Doug McDonald from the city gave a presentation on the Main Street Project. You can find the presentation here.
The following were elected to the board.
|Don Bean||Vicki Bean||Doug Freeman|
