ALNA | October Elections
October is election month and we are hopeful to have new board members join us. If you would like to run for an open position, please plan to join us for our next meeting on October 20th.
What does the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association do? In 2022 they brought our neighborhood these activities:
A Jazz music event in the park, set for July, moved to September due to high heat
The Waste Collection/Clean Up in October
A Tree Walk in the park
Several work parties at Arbor Lodge Park to keep it pesticide/herbicide free
Multiple "De-Litter Arbor Lodge" trash pick up events
Specific trash pick ups with help from residents and staff at the Arbor Lodge Shelter - just around the Shelter
What would you like to do? What could you bring to the neighborhood? All ideas are welcome.
