Mailboxes open!

I noticed Friday night at around 11:30 that the door that holds mailboxes 206-216 was ajar. I could open the door and access all of those households' mailboxes. I couldn't tell if it had been broken into or if the mailman had just forgotten to close/lock it.

Our Second Quarter All Coop meeting is scheduled for Sunday, May 21 at 6:30 PM.

The agenda is:

State of the Co-op.
Update on Acquisition Process.
Neighborhood activity report.
Planning Announcement for National Night Out Event.
Explanation of grievance policy.
Art Club Report.
Garden Committee Report.
Proposal to change to courtyard rules.
Proposal to change rules for area behind black fence along North side of building.

Let me know if you have questions.

Please note: At least one adult member from each household must attend.



On Saturday May 20th from 10-3, we'll hold our spring cleanup day.

Come out and help spruce up the co-op! Talk to the neighbors you haven't seen all winter and meet the new folks.

The date of our cleanup coincides with the District 7 Community Cleanup. This means that there should be opportunities to get rid of old mattresses, sofas, tires, etc. for free!

I'll amend this post later with more details about what need to be done.

Let me know if you have any questions.
