Belle Isle West Neighborhood Association Holds Annual Meeting
On Tuesday, March 5th, Belle Isle West held our Annual Meeting at the Waterford Hotel. We were delighted to see so many people new to the neighborhood as well as many familiar faces. The meeting room was filled to capacity (50) with a few people standing at the back. We enjoyed delicious hot hors d’oeuvres, assorted desserts and a cash bar.
Our guests were James Cooper, our new Ward 2 Councilman who takes office in April, and Georgie Rasco, the Executive Director of the Neighborhood Alliance. Both spoke for a few minutes to our members about how we can be more effective in our efforts to solve some of our neighborhood’s problems.
Officers were introduced and door prizes were presented to the two neighbors who have lived here the shortest length of time. Each one received a Ted’s gift card and 1-year free association membership. Several neighbors expressed interest in serving the neighborhood by becoming Street Directors where they are needed. Many thanks to the staff at the beautiful Waterford Hotel who made us feel so welcome and those who prepared and served our excellent food.
