I have a couple of items to pass along . . .
One: Our annual Neighborhood Association Meeting and Pot Luck will be held in conjunction with the 26th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4, 2009, this time at the home of Greg & Jayne Wack, 2257 Country Lane. We’ll have fried chicken, maybe some grilled burgers & hot dogs, and soft drinks, but ask that you bring something else to share. Things will start informally about 5:30, with the ‘business’ portion of our meeting to be held about 7:00. We hope you can make it!
Two: At the meeting we hope to hand out new CCENA Directories. To do this, we need to make sure all the information we have on file currently is accurate. We will be distributing new forms to each home in our neighborhood over the next couple of days. We ask that *everyone* complete their form and return it by July 7, even if you have previously completed such a form. You can drop yours off with Sarah Catlin-Duprey (2264 Country Lane), or me (2011 N. Country Club), or mail them. In addition to creating a paper directory, we would like to create an online directory listing name, address, phone number and email addresses – but you can limit what information you have posted, if you wish. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on August 4th!
Well, the last couple of weeks Martha and I have been busy creating something new which I thought may be of interest to our neighbors. I had mentioned previously that I had been involved with the Neighborhood Leadership Program and the “Keys to the City” event. Well, one thing which came out of those was a growing awareness of the need for the various neighborhood associations in the city to share news and information. So we’ve created:
Columbia Neighborhood Alliance
Discussion forum for Columbia, MO neighborhood associations.
This forum is open to one and all, and you are welcome to participate. Particularly if you have information or experience to share with others who are looking to make their neighborhood association more effective, and to help thereby to improve our city. Stop by and give us a visit!
For those of you who missed it, the morning open house and garden party at the home of Randy Kilgore and Gary Smith was lovely. We had perfect weather for it, the scones baked by Gary were delightful, and the back yard garden is an amazing oasis!
