We do not want to add unnecessarily to your inboxes, but as you know, there is a lot more going on in our neighbourhood and several of you have asked for more regular information and updates outside of our 2-3 meetings a year. This update is intended to do just that. If you have information or events relevant to the Central Nneighbourhood you would like to share, please send your request and information to firstname.lastname@example.org – Thank you.
