Warm weather means event season is really heating up. I’ve added a bunch of events to the VPNA calendar. In our hood there are bike rides, food festivals, roadway open houses, mobile recreation times, VPNA board meetings, and the VPNA movie night! What did I miss? Please email us at let us know of other events in and around the VPNA and I will add them to the calendar.
Save the date: VPNA’s annual meeting will be Monday, April 20
Are you doing spring cleaning? Do you have items that you no longer need that you want to donate? Please consider giving them to residents of the Davis Park Apartments. Many families are also in need of bathroom supplies. New toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, soap, shampoo, detergent, deodorant, loufa, floss, etc.
Donations can be brought to the VPNA annual meeting. Jason LaBrado from Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) will be there to collect them, talk about upcoming events, and answer any questions. Items can also be brought to the NHS office (3380 W. Americana Terrace Suite 120, Boise). Large items (like furniture) should be brought directly to the Spring Fling event (April 23 at Davis Park Apartments, more details to follow).
