We’re looking for some new members for our communications team. It’s a great opportunity to learn all about the neighborhood association and become very familiar will all our programs and work. It’s also a great way to learn how to manage a Facebook page, twitter feed or email newsletter – or all three if you’re very ambitious. If this sounds interesting to you email Sarah Anton at We’ll set up a time to talk about what needs to be done and see how you might be able to help!
