April 26, 2016 Newsletter
It’s official – Spring has arrived. Flowers and trees are again blooming and our resident woodpecker has been sighted and heard on East 36th Street. I don’t know where he goes in the winter but he has returned. I would like to extend a personal thank you on behalf of the MPCA and community to the O’Malley Irish Step Dancers. These young ladies and gentlemen again performed at our membership meeting. It has been a tradition which I hope will continue.
At last months’ meeting we were given an update regarding bike thefts and automobile incidents – car break-ins and tire thefts. We appreciate representatives from the 63rd precinct attending our monthly meetings and keeping us informed. It appears that some arrests have been made regarding these incidents.
Please note: a special election is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19th which would be the date of our next community meeting. Because the Board of Elections will be utilizing the Carmine Carro Community Center that day we will have to move our Community meeting to the following week. The MPCA community meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 26th.
At this month’s meeting we will be presenting to you the new slate of Officers and Directors for the next year, June 2016 thru June 2017. It will be your opportunity to approve the new Board. The Nominating Committee did a fine job contacting current board members and interviewing future board members. We are all volunteers and our guiding principle is to continue making the Marine Park community a vibrant, safe and welcoming place to live and raise a family.
Please remember we have a hotline that you can call with questions or concerns as well as email. You do not have to wait until the next community meeting. If a new neighbor has moved on your block please let them know about our monthly meeting. There is strength in numbers.
