EPX will soon be wrapping up our first year in existence. Looking at all the neighborhood activities and community building covered by other entries on this web site, we certainly have many good things for which to be proud, and have learned a lot through the process.
One of the areas were we have not been so successful, however has been recruiting block captains. To this end, we’ve designated the Order of the Day for our June General Membership meeting as an opportunity for fostering these much needed volunteers. We have light refreshments and open discussion from the floor regarding the role and need for a healthy and vibrant group of block captains. Whether you’re already a seasoned block captain, interested in becoming one, or simply curious about what block captains do, please come share your hopes and desires for the neighborhood, and how EPX can help, as we steer ourselves through into another year.
The Board of Directors will take this opportunity to listen to members’ concerns in this moderated forum. Bring your ideas for ‘07-’08 and enjoy some tasty baked goods donated by our membership committee. We hope to see you there.
