my first two years of living in Euclid St. Paul's, I thought this must be a
unique and fantastic neighborhood. I received the postcards and newsletters.
I read each one and hung them on the fridge. I recognized the many events
weren't common to all neighborhoods and really wanted to check them out, but
somehow each event passed and I failed to attend.
That all changed two years ago. My husband and I went to one general meeting
and it seems from there we became more involved and more connected. With
each event, we met new people and volunteered to help out at future events.
Before we knew it, we were serving as board members. Now, as your current
president, I know how amazing it is to live in Euclid St. Paul's and I am
proud to serve the the truly unique and fantastic neighborhood we call home!
We have a lot planned for 2017! One of our biggest goals is to increase
membership and active participation from our neighbors. The successful
events and activities of our neighborhood are a direct result of active
membership and active committees. If you have yet to renew your membership,
it's just a click away. Visit
http://espna.org/membershipform.html. There are many ways you can become
involved. I encourage you to review our committees and join one of interest
to you. If you are like I was two years ago, let this be the year you join!
I'm pleased to announce our charity for this year is The Kind Mouse.
Coincidentally their pantry is located right in our neighborhood at 1801
16th Street North. The mission of this organization is to assist families in
transition and their chronically hungry children. You can find out more
about this great organization by visiting their website,
I hope to see everyone at this Thursday's general meeting, themed "Show Some
Love to Our Charity." We have a packed agenda with a few guest speakers. We
will hear from the founder of The Kind Mouse, Gina Wilkins. At this time,
they are in most need of Jif to Go Peanut Butter in individual size
servings. Please consider picking up some peanut butter to donate at our
meeting! Joe Grossman from the Rowdies will inform us about ticket
opportunities and their hopes to make it into Major League Soccer. Liz
Abernathy, a Zoning Official from the city will also join us to discuss land
development regulations and other zoning related information. We'll also
meet the board members and hear about opportunities to get involved and join
Here's to another great year in Euclid St. Paul's!
