Presidents Message April 2019

12 Mar

Hello IOP Neighbors,
March has flown by and we are rapidly approaching April. This means Springtime events, like Easter, are right around the corner. I encourage all members, especially members with children, to come to the park for the Easter event on April 20th (a Saturday). This is truly an enjoyable event with an environment provided for children up to 13-14 years old. More details about the Easter Event are included in this newsletter and please do not hesitate to contact any of the board members with questions you have regarding this event.
The main neighborhood event for the Month of March was the Beach Cleanup which took place on 9 March from 9am-Noon. This is an important annual event because it maintains and improves the condition of the park for the remainder of the year. While I understand that not everyone may be available or able to volunteer, I’d like to take this time to make a call for action to encourage more initiative from our members to get involved. I am making this request because currently we have 136 IOP members (households) and less than 5% of our membership base (households) showed up to help at this event. There are several other improvement projects taking place throughout the remainder of the year too; therefore, we will have several other improvement projects that still need to be completed during the year, if you’d still like to contribute please contact myself or another board member.
Remember that school is still in session so abide by the posted speed limits in the neighborhood and please always look out for children waiting at the bus stops in the mornings, children being dropped off in the afternoons after school and in general while they are crossing the streets or outside playing.
