Yay! Congrats HGBNA!

Thanks to all the great folks who turned out for the April meeting (and great to meet all the new folks), it was a bit difficult to get everything covered, as a couple of the topics are very complex, but as more and more folks attend and learn what’s currently happening in our ‘hood, this should get easier. Next month, everyone that attended the last meeting try to get one more neighbor to come along to the May 19th meeting! Let’s fill the room.

We’ll publish minutes from the April meeting in this post when they are compiled.

This Tuesday, March 17, will be the first meeting of HGBNA in 2015, and this year we will revitalize our neighborhood association. We’ll take the opportunity to talk about expanding the leadership team, the teardowns happening in our neighborhood, and other issues..

Historic Glenwood-Brooklyn Neighborhood Association
Your neighborhood is looking for people to get involved, either in a leadership position or as an engaged resident of Glenwood-Brooklyn. Our goal is to have a voice in the building/redevelopment of our neighborhood, and get some improvements in some areas. The best way to do that is via the neighborhood association.

Organized, we can get our concerns in front of the pertinent city groups and commissions. We hope to see you on Tuesday, if you cannot make it, but still wish to consider participating in a leadership or other role (or know of others who would), please do reply.

Leadership roles to be filled:
Officers: VP Communications, VP Committees, Treasurer
Committees: Social, Community Improvements,, Community Affairs, Tour of Homes

There will be monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of the month, with other meetings as needed to deal with situations as they arise.

We are kicking off a new group in the neighborhood designed just for the women in the neighborhood to meet each other, get together, and build a stronger community. We’ll have monthly get togethers that will give us an opportunity to partake in activities that we want to do, but that our male counterparts may not indulge us in! Ideas include Wine & Design, facial parties, and the like.

We’ll be having a kick off party on Thursday, July 10th at 6:30 pm at C.Grace Cocktail Bar. We’d love for as many ladies from the neighborhood to come as possible, as we’ll use this initial gathering to map out some ideas for what group members would like to get out of the group and to develop a list of outings and activities that we can begin planning.

We look forward to seeing everyone there, and please pass along to your friends and neighbors!
