August Meeting Minutes
Attendees: Jesse, Joe, Clare, Joy, Trouble (I forgot the dogs name!), Himanshu, Miguel, Roger, Amy, Abby & Mike
The artists interested in putting up some art in Newbold (at Dickinson Grove specifically) decided to go elsewhere. No reasoning why. Paradigm will keep our area in mind for other art projects
NNA has been contacted by donors interested in donating towards a bench at Dickinson Grove. Jesse has provided them with information needed to make a donation. Nothing has been donated yet.
There were no volunteers for the tire round-up, so we did not earn any money though that. (Last year we earned $100)
Jesse will email PHS to find out if its possible for NNA to acquire a long term lease for The Grove and possibly get electricity there.
In the meantime Mike will get some catalogs of solar lights for us to look at what our options are...
Other PHS maintained properties: http://phsonline.org/greening/landcare-program/landcare-map/
If there is one that stands out to you, bring it to the next meeting, assuming we have the same support we have for Dickinson Grove, it would be amazing if we could create another park this Fall!
