Branch, Crime Watch Branch, Community Garden Branch, and Membership Branch
-Our new Crime Watch Branch Leader is Paul Ristau, please email him directly if you would like to volunteer and/or attend the meetings. email@example.com
-The Community Garden Branch discussed if they should volunteer at both the Triangle Garden and/or the Hursey Elementary Garden. It was also brought up as to what capacity they would volunteer. Please contact Russ Patterson if you want to get involved.
-The Beautification Branch discussed possibly sending out notices to our neighbors reminding them of their responsibility to keep the sidewalks clean in front of their homes. It was also proposed that as a group we could come through one or more Saturdays to edge and sweep sidewalks to set the tone for a better looking neighborhood. Please contact Kate Besta if you are interested in attending these meetings and helping out.
-The Membership Branch discussed handing out newsletters every month door to door. There is also a need to create a new members packet for the ONCNC. If you would like
to volunteer please contact Christine Beddia.
