Welcome Package for CGNE Neighbors

Hello, neighbors!

Our neighborhood association has created a welcome folder for new residents. We’ll be distributing these in person starting later this month.
We put together a packet with a bunch of useful information that might be handy whether you’re new to CGNE or have lived here for years. I’ve attached the packet to this email so you can take a look!
The welcome folders also include info about the Grant Road expansion project, recycling schedule, Lend A Hand, and some pet owner resources. If you have any other info you’d like us to include in the folders, please let me know!
Have a great weekend,
Elizabeth

Notes from May 17, 2017 Meeting

Hey Everyone,
Bill and Jana are on vacation and asked me to send the notes from the last meeting. So they are below.

Lots happening since then. Robert and Sue are doing their thing with the libraries, Sue got a bunch of books from Tucson Friends of the Library. YAY! Elizabeth is going crazy with the welcome packet. It looks great, and we have several homes that will be with new owners soon to give them too. Bill set up another neighborhood meeting for July 20th, 6 PM at Ward III. I hope most of you can attend. Our first garden meeting is June 20th at Cyndi’s, and Bill has some cleanup dates for alleys so we can take advantage of the next brush and bulky. The next Newsletter will be out in about a week or so. And lastly, Lend a Hand is having a furniture sale this weekend. Check your email from Vicki if you are available to help.

First of all I want to thank all of you for being at the meeting tonight. We accomplished so much more then I imagined. Here is a brief overview.
