FHNA annual members’ meeting Wed Jan 17

Dear Finn Hill Neighbor: Here are two reminders about upcoming events:

Monday, January 15 – Martin Luther King Day tree planting: Get outside and make the world better by planting some trees in Big Finn Hill Park! King County is organizing a work party that will meet at the Big Finn Hill playground at 10am. The event will run until 2pm. Come when you can and stay until your inner Johnny (or Jeannie) Appleseed has had his/her fill. Signing up on line will help the County and FHNA gauge how many tools to bring: https://volunteer.uwkc.org/need/detail/?need_id=300807

Wednesday, January 17 – FHNA annual members’ meeting: The Finn Hill Neigborhood Alliance invites you to our annual members’ meeting beginning at 7pm in the Cafeteria of the Finn Hill Middle School, 8040 132nd Street. We’ll have coffee, water, cookies — and the following agenda:

  • Election of directors: Amy Falcone, Bill Blanchard, Ed Hunt, and Marc Ackerman are standing for re-election and Fred Schaffalitzky and Pastor James Kumin (Inglewood Presbyterian) are candidates for 2 vacancies on the board. We will accept nominations from the floor as well. Candidates will provide brief background statements before attendees are asked to vote.
  • Lake Washington School District bond/levy measures: Jessica Bootth, a Carl Sandburg parent, will summarize the district’s bond and levy proposals, which will be on the ballot for a February 13 vote. Click here for some background information from the district’s website.
  • Rain water harvesting: John Bailey will describe how he installed a rain water harvesting system for Inglewood Presbyterian using County grant funds and plenty of volunteer time. He can give us some tips on installing our own rain water havesting systems and gardens.
  • Emergency preparedness: Susan Vossler and Meredith Boggues will discuss steps you can take to prepare yourself and your neighbors for emergencies. The news is full of natural disasters, unfortunately. It makes sense to get ready before trouble strikes.
  • 2017 review and 2018 forecast: We’ll offer a quick run down of what FHNA did in 2017 and what we how to accomplish — with your help — in 2018.

We hope to see you on Monday and Wednesday….and stop by the Council meeting on Tuesday evening to see what happens with the neighborhood plan.

Best regards,

Scott Morris
President, Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance
