E 185th Neighborhood Association Meeting: Collinwood Rec Center - Getting Involved
The E 185th Neighborhood Association held its July meeting, as always, at the Lithuanian American Citizens Club on E 185th St. And - as always - there were lots of upcoming events to catch everyone up on, and our Fifth District Community Engagement Officer was on hand as always, to talk about neighborhood issues, & report back on previous questions.
Our guest this meeting, was Michael Cook, President of the "Friends" group for our Collinwood Rec Center. Not only is our Rec Center one of the busiest - if not thebusiest - Rec Centers in the city, Mr. Cook says being so offers all kinds of opportunities for volunteering, to help keep our Rec Center great. Including joining the "Friends" Board. Do consider joining the "Friends'" Board - especially if you're a regular user of the Rec Center. Meetings are every second Tuesday, at 6:00pm, at the Rec Center.
As always, we invite you to check out your local Neighborhood Association - the meetings are always listed in the Community Meetings calendar here in the Collinwood Observer.This is your regular chance, to talk to both the Councilman, & our local Police District - & it's a great way to be active in this community of ours.
Look forward to seeing you! (And bring a neighbor!)
See you next month!
