Letter from the President

Hi neighbors,

In 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, http://www.thekindmouse.org.

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 committees!

Here's to another great year in Euclid St. Paul's!

Megan Kotsko
ESPNA President
