Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all been enjoying the holiday season, and this strangely dry December. I’ve really enjoyed looking at all the lights and decorations at people’s houses, on my walks through the neighborhood.
It’s a new year and a time for new beginnings. And I don’t usually like to make pitches for things, but there is a group here that’s trying to make this neighborhood a better community, and to be a voice for all residents. It’s the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association.
Membership is just $12 a year. Becoming part of the Association is a great way to be involved in issues that matter to all of us–the residents of the Poverty Ridge, Newton Booth, and Alhambra Triangle neighborhoods. The Association organizes also fun events like last November’s “Newton’s Night Out”; and with more active members, we’ll be able to have more events to bring neighbors together.
Below is the membership application–just print it out, write a check for the low, low membership price of $12, and mail it in!
Also, if you’re a member of NBNA (or have decided to join), and if you’re interested in getting involved in the neighborhood and making things happen, consider applying for membership on the NBNA Board. The Board is looking for new members who love the neighborhood and have a desire to work toward taking care of and improving the community.
Below is the Board Membership Application; please print it, fill it out and send it in, if you’re interested. Thank you!
And on behalf of the Neighborhood Association, I’d like to wish all of you a happy and prosperous 2012.
