Annual Meeting / Join the Board Now

The VPNA Annual Meeting is just around the corner. This year we’ll have a few presentations followed by an open house with a number of interesting booths highlighting the whitewater park, 30th Street area, historic walking trail and more!
Location: Whittier Elementary (click here for map )
Date and Time: Monday, March 21, 2011 from 6-8pm

Consider Joining the Board:
We are drumming up interest in vacancies before the meeting. The Veteran’s Park area is divided into 9 neighborhoods (click here to see a map), currently there are many vacancies. Four neighborhoods don’t have any representation; these include Veteran’s Point, Park Davis, Quail Glen and Independence Park.

The time commitment of being a board member is mostly up to the individual. At a minimum we’d like new members to attend most monthly board meetings (held the 3rd Monday of each month at Idaho River Sports from 6:30-8pm). If you choose to get involved outside of board meetings, what you do is also left open to personal choice. Some possibilities and past examples include:

  • Representing VPNA on a CCDC sub-committee, connect to some portion of the 30th St plan implementation.
  • Getting a community center built in our neighborhood
  • Helping with fundraising to pay for our website and community events.
  • Organizing neighborhood get-togethers.
  • Writing grants. In the past year board members submitted grants that will hopefully pay for new playground equipment at Taft Elementary and another one to build a historical walking trail.
  • Starting the Jordan Street Community Garden.
