Update - September 2013

ODNA Update September 19, 2013 First, sad news. Longtime ODNA member Ken Ewing passed away August 31st. Ken was an active member participating in numerous clean ups and events. He also worked hard to keep the “Citizens On Patrol” program active in the ODNA footprint. A card on behalf of the association was sent to his wife, Barbara. In addition, ODNA will make a $50 donation to the American Cancer Society in Ken’s memory. Second, ODNA will be participating in the Family Fall Festival on October 26th from 10am to 3pm in Veterans Park. We will be hosting a craft table for kids, featuring “Make Your Own Paper Plate Jack-o-Lanterns.” As always, we need VOLUNTEERS to help at the craft table. We are looking to have at least two people at the table from 10am to 3pm. If you can give an hour, email me at bterjung1@juno.com if you can help. Next, ODNA will be cleaning up the Ship Streets on Saturday, November 2nd! We will gather in Friendship Circle at 8am for coffee and donuts, and then spread out into the neighborhood picking up trash. While walking through, we also be taking note of conditions in our neighborhood (things like broken sidewalks, clogged storm drains, etc.) that we can address and hopefully get fixed! VOLUNTEERS are needed to make our clean up a success! Whether you have an hour or have all day, we can use your help! Email me at bterjung1@juno.com, so I know who’s coming. Finally, our next meeting will be November 13th at 7pm in the Dundalk Community Center. For this meeting we will have updates on: * Dundalk Ave Road Destruction Construction project * What’s going on at the Village Center * And more . . . . . . We also hope to have a representative from One Voice Recovery Center come to tell us more about the center, their approach to recovery and their plans for giving back to the community. Our 2014 meeting dates are: January 8th March 12th May 14th July 9th Sept 10th Nov 12th
