BPNA monthly meeting, 3/27


Our monthly meeting will be this Tuesday, March 27. As usual, we'll meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Free Methodist Church on the corner of Grimes and S. Lincoln.

Not too much on the agenda, so far. We've set the block party date for August 24. I'd like to propose that we pay to have the tables and chairs delivered, rather than Jon picking them up and returning them with his truck. We have money in the bank account that could pay for this.

Several people have asked for an update on the Hillside and Henderson project. The developers have shared that it was too late to break ground in time for August occupancy, as they had hoped. They are waiting to start the project in the summer.

This would be a good time to talk about how to encourage more people to get involved with BPNA. We have almost 300 people on the email list, and I'm sure there are plenty of good ideas just waiting to be heard.

BPNA elections in 3 months, nominees needed

Hi neighbors,
After serving as BPNA president for the past three years, I've decided to step down when my term is up in June. It's been a great experience, and an honor to represent Bryan Park. We've just wrapped up several long-term projects, and it's a good time to hand it on to someone new. Elections are held at the June meeting, so we have some time. Please start thinking if you, or someone you know, would be interested in running.

The best part of the experience has been getting to know so many of you. This is truly a special place. I'll still be around and still be involved with BPNA. See you at a meeting!
