SGNA Committees Need YOU!

(Updated)

No doubt the Beatles were describing the role of neighborhood associations when they sung:
"I am he as you are he as your are me and we are all together"

To translate, that means YOU are the reason neighborhood associations exist and YOU (and people just like you) are what make it happen.

In that spirit the 12 volunteer members of your Sullivan's Gulch Neighborhood Association Board had a very productive retreat last Saturday.  We developed some priorities for 2012, among the most important one is encouraging more people to get involved with the Neighborhood Association. 

One good way to get involved is participate by serving on a committee.  You get to deal with real livability issues and have a more informal and flexible participation.  Upcoming committee meetings include:

Land Use Committee - Thursday, March 6 at 7 pm at Holladay Park Plaza
Lots going on that affects the livability of the neighborhood, NE Broadway Businesses, participation in the NE Quadrant planning study; possible permit parking zone, 
For details contact: Britt Brewer.

Communications Committee - Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6 pm at Skyline Burgers, NE 22nd and Broadway.
We put out the quarterly newsletters, place the lawn signs on street corners announcing events, manage the website, etc.  We need your help with upgrading the website, cross posting information to other social media sites, etc.  Contact Chris Lopez for details.

Emergency Preparedness Introduction Night — March 15 from 6:30-8pm.  Please RSVP to Brenn Simonen to get location.
Are you prepared for an emergency?  Do you know what to do and where to go if a disaster happens?  Does your household have a plan?  Learn basic tools to save you and your family during an emergency and increase you chance of survival during a disaster.

Lifestyles Committee - no meeting scheduled this month.  

Upcoming events:  Spring Clean Up (aka Trash Bash) is set for Saturday May 26.  Details about what will be included are being worked out.  If there's a particular item you'd like to see recycled your help is always welcome. Meetings will be held April and May to get ready.  Contact Dave Brook by email or phone if you'd like to help out. 

Come to a Neighborhood Association Board meeting

You are always invited to attend the monthly SGNA Board meetings.  They are always the 2nd Tuesday of the month 7:30 to 9 pm at Holladay Park Plaza.  The next Board Meeting: March 13 - 7-30 pm at Holladay Park Plaza.  Hope to see you there.

- Dave Brook, Board President
