BPNA Meeting Tues. March 23, 2010

Our March meeting will be this Tuesday, March 23. As usual, we'll meet at 7:00p.m. at the Free Methodist Church at the corner of Grimes and S. Lincoln.

New items on the agenda this month:

Our annual block party:
We need volunteers to start planning this year's block party. The neighbors who live along the 1000 block of South Dunn St. have been very gracious about sharing their street for the party over the past few years. We'd like to honor several requests that we find a new location for this year and will need suggestions and help in finding a new location. Also, Jon and Jan would like some help in writing the grant for the party as well as with planning and setup.

One possibility is holding the party in one of the shelters at Bryan Park. This would have the advantage of restrooms, play areas for kids, and perhaps volleyball or other activities. We'd have to petition the city for a permit for live music, and there is some concern that people might not be as likely to attend if the party was not as centrally located.

Opinions? Let us know what you think, and if you can help. The grant is due April 19, so we need to get started!

Annual elections:
Start thinking now about whether you want to run for one of BPNA's elected positions. Our annual elections will be held at the June meeting.

Blog Use:
Recently, we've had more requests for posting notices to the blog. Do you have an opinion about the best use of the blog? Should we open up posting authority to a bigger group? Do you mind getting notices about activities and events not directly related to BPNA?

Please let me know if you'd like to add anything to the agenda.
