11/3/16 DGNA Meeting minutes
The November meeting took place on Thursday, November 3rd at 7pm at the home of Jerica Etheridge at 407 S Evans Street. Twelve neighbors were present.
The September 2016 meeting minutes were approved. The Treasurer was not present so there was no treasurer’s report.
The DGNA T-shirt Event was successful. Approximately 30-40 neighbors were in attendance. We spent a total of $232.49 which was under budget. We now have a number of t-shirts, long sleeve shirts and totes for neighbors who could not attend and would like to buy one or for future neighbors who are interested in buying one. A report on funds, etc. will be given to the Treasurer.
The Chili cook-off event was also successful. Thank you to our host David Bentley as well as Lacey Fritsch and Sarah Hanzel for all your hard work in putting it together.
We are looking for volunteers to host the winter traveling social sometime between February and March but date is flexible based on the hosts’ availability as hosts pick the date of the event. Please let us know if you are interested in being a host.
Sarah Hanzel mentioned it would be fun to do a Garlic Press cooking class for a DGNA Event. She will be looking into organizing that even for some time in January.
We have decided not to do luminaries this year as we had no interest in the meeting in organizing it.
We currently have block captains for all of our blocks.
Brad Williams and a few other neighbors attended the police chief’s meeting on 11/2. A discussion was had regarding the drunk driver on Grove several weeks ago which did severe damage to several cars parked on Grove. Please remember to lock your car doors, we’ve had more instances of items being stolen from unlocked cars. The Circle K on the corner of Oakland and Clinton was robbed at gunpoint on 10/31.
Pam Eaton talked about putting plaques in yards to help spread more information about the history of our neighborhood. Dawn brought up keeping the plaques small with a QR code to take visitors to more information on our website.
The next meeting will take place on Thursday, January 5th at Terri Clemons house at 606 E Grove.
