On Thursday 7/14 at 7:00pm, the Sligo Woods Civic Association will have its first virtual event and the first annual meeting since March 2019.
The past few years have been, to say the least, tumultuous and disruptive. The Civic Association has largely been in a holding pattern, in organizational terms, since the initial COVID lockdowns started in 2020. While we have not been able to have regular meetings and social events, the 165 individuals who are signed up on the listserv continued to be in communication with other listserv participants—especially valuable during the COVID isolation—and we are grateful to Fiesta’s Diana Moore for continuing to manage this, as she has since our beginning in 2014.
Other incredible members have continued offering key, now-traditional Sligo Woods outdoor community activities: the Halloween parade and yard decorating, and the December holiday yard-decorating contest. More behind the scenes, the Welcome New Neighbors project has continued, thanks to Justin Way’s Mary Moore.
We know that many of you have missed engaging with your Sligo Woods neighbors and would like to return to our regular association activities. To kick things off, we will be holding an annual meeting via Zoom on July 14th to elect new board members—and all civic association members, including new neighbors, are invited to consider Board service in either one- or two-year terms. The link to the July 14th Zoom meeting, along with phone dial-in options, was sent to the Association’s 272 member-households via a June 21 email from SligoWoods@gmail.com.
With all board positions open, the Association is looking for members who are interested in serving on the board and helping to shape the future of the Association. More about what the Board and its members do can be found here: What does the Board do? | Sligo Woods Civic Association. If you are interested in standing for election or have questions, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 10th. The proposed slate will be emailed to the membership on July 11th.
Looking forward to “seeing” you on July 14th,
Todd Sleeman, President
