On Saturday, April 16, 2022, we hosted an Easter Egg Hunt at all three parks – Grand Avenue, Drew Nielsen, and Legion. We started at 10am and at least for Legion Park, we were done finding eggs and handing out prizes by 10:18am! The weather was nice, the kiddos were cute with bunny ears and festive baskets. And, the parents got a chance to catch up. Thanks for joining us and we’ll do it again next year!

Matching Grant Fund Update
The annual matching amount has been reduced from $2000 to $1000. Applications are due March 7th. The Steering Committee will work out the numbers.
It was decided that we will send a formal letter to the City to express our frustration at the reduction of services, and opportunity, for the neighborhood system to function.
We have $10,500 in the bank, and $400 in PayPal. We are grateful to our donors who help us maintain things like Zoom, Constant Contact, storage, and provide money so that we can do projects that better our neighborhood, and grow community.
Kari Quaas, Chair
