Time. Talent. Treasure.
In the Bible, Matthew 6:21 talks about, “showing God our love” with time, talent and treasure. We often hear this same term bandied about in the not-for-profit sector as it relates to its volunteer base and stewardship. The Moss Bradley Residential Association is a successful organization because of individuals giving of their Time, Talent and Treasure.
As a neighborhood, we are continually grateful for the people who give their precious time. It’s the participation and support of these individuals that allows us to help build and improve our neighborhood.
Last year, we introduced two awards to recognize individuals for their contribution to the Moss Bradley Residential Association: Volunteer of the Year and MBRA Beautification. The criteria and nominating process are found here. The intent behind these awards is to formally recognize those individuals who really do make a difference for all of us through their time commitment or improvement of their property.
Please take a moment to read through the criteria and send in your nomination to recognize those people who make a difference. Award recipients will be announced at the Annual Meeting & Potluck Dinner on May 3rd.
In addition to time and talent, the Moss Bradley Residential Association also make a financial commitment to the neighborhood. As noted in the March 2016 newsletter, “We have been very fortunate over the past years to have had ever-growing success with the Moss Avenue Antique Sale & Festival. What started out as a means of assisting with the financing of the Hanging of the Greens has grown into a very strong event, which now helps us reinvest in the neighborhood.”
I ask you to provide us with some suggestions of projects for our neighborhood to invest in. You can do so by contacting any board member or submitting them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 31, 2017.
