Thank you to everyone who came out for the November General Meeting with Mayor Cranley as our guest speaker. (see pictures on page 3) It was a great session where the Mayor talked about his key initiatives for the city, and also a good opportunity for him to hear from our neighborhood. Along the same theme, please join us for interim Chief of Police Isaac’s visit in December!
Again this year, North Avondale was shining during the Keep Cincinnati Beautiful annual awards ceremony. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate the Beautification Committee and all the NANA volunteers for winning 1st place for the Great American Cleanup Project Award. This is very impressive achievement considering that our main event took place on a Saturday in April with threat of strong rain all morning, which luckily just held off until we had distributed several “mountains” of mulch in Seasongood Park, gotten all the new trees planted, and a lot of garbage picked up on the side streets. Hoping for a sunnier event in 2016, we are looking forward to see what our volunteering neighbors can do when we put our forces together. And to everyone reading this, join in when there is a call for help! … even a couple of hours makes a huge difference.
As a preview for the January General Meeting, we will have the Metropolitan Sewer District’s Director Gerald Checco at our meeting. If you have any questions or particular topics you would like him to address, please send them to our email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As the year comes to an end, I would like to extend a thank you for a great year to our City of Cincinnati partners, District 4 Police and Firefighters. We appreciate the partnership and all you do!
On behalf of the NANA board and committee members, I wish you all the best for the Holidays and a Happy New Year!
