Spring Cleaning

We had a great turnout at our regular meeting this month. Over 25 people came out to the Liederkranz to spend time with their neighbors. As usual around here, Maggie the dog happily wagged her tail all night long and a few folks enjoyed drinks at the bar.

Our guest speaker, Roane Smothers from the City of Dayton, gave a nice refresher course on the guidelines for owning property in a historic district. His main point was to remind everyone that ANY exterior work requires a call to the City. He can handle most situations, like minor repairs or painting, over the phone. Roane can be reached at 333-3670.

In other news, Tom is looking for volunteers this weekend to do some Spring Cleaning in St. Anne's Hill. If you'd like to help, bring your work gloves this Saturday, April 5 and meet at the corner of High and Josie Streets at 9 a.m. The team will take a relaxing walk around the neighborhood to pick up litter.

At the meeting we also talked about some of the great events coming up, so mark your calendars and look for more information in the April Newsletter, which should be in your mailbox this week. We'll have more information here on the blog, too.
