Elizabeth Barker, presiding
New resident Catherine Dobson joined us.
Cinco de Mayo in Tower Park
Garth provided awesome street tacos
Band – Patrick’s friends Three Orange Whips
Alpacas skittish. Want other animals in the future? Had approx. 120 people come.
Membership number as of now: 365 (compared with 370 total in 2011)
Garth suggested that maybe should commit to just one post card mailing per year because of expense.
Currently we have about $11,000 in the THA savings account. Maybe we should keep half in reserve and do a big $5,000 project such as:
Tower Homes signs or banners at major intersections
Tower Homes signs or banners on light poles and in park
Colored lights on tower for holidays (year-round white lights are included in the plan for renovation of the tower)
Sidewalk replace / repair (expensive)
John – tower park security:
Crime low over last three months
Most crime is shoplifting
4th of July is on a Wednesday – last year THA spent $1,130 on park security over that holiday
July general meeting joint with Waldo Homes Association 17th at 6:30 at Kansas City Academy
Candidates for Jason Kander’s spot Jeremy LeFavor and Chris Miller will speak.
Ravin Graham of Community Improvement District will give updates about Waldo area businesses
Community Improvement pays for printing of newsletter; we pay postage.
Waldo Homes has presence at farmer’s market on Waldo Wednesdays (3rd Wednesday of month); we will do the same.
John proposed a Gift certificate for Robin Jackson, former active board member, who is moving away.
$25 Governor Stumpy’s
Elizabeth seconded. Motion carried.
Might be a good idea to contact former board members for ideas / help with meetings or projects
Might want to recognize long-time residents of neighborhood
Election of officers in September. New blood would be nice.
Think of potential nominees
Adjourned about 8:45 PM.
