February for MBRA brings the topic of change. The bylaws require the selection of a nominating committee to develop a new slate of board members for the next year beginning in May. If you have a desire to serve, please raise your hand and let us know. People with a commitment to serve will get things done for all of us.
Other upcoming events that will need volunteers are the MBRA potluck on May 7 and the second annual River City Marathon May 18. Also under consideration is some type of our involvement with the Children’s Home to provide revenue for them and mentoring opportunities for all of us.
Our neighborhood is alive with change. Although there is disappointment with Aldi’s moving from our area, we support efforts from the city and the neighborhood to find a suitable and sustaining grocery to fill the need in South Town. Many times we only bemoan the losses and forget the additions.
The West Main Street area has seen recent additions such as, Studios on Sheridan, the Fieldhouse Bar and Grill, Broken Tree Coffee, Haddad’s Restaurant, the Church Mouse, Leaves N Beans, Random, Main Statement, Excel Recycled Office Furniture, Comprehensive Prosthetics and Orthotics, Las Delicias Helados and Peoria Next Innovation Center.
We are blessed to have old and new businesses that have invested in our area.
Next membership meeting is Wednesday, Feb 5, 2014, West Minster Church 7:00pm.
Next board meeting Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014, 1602 W Moss Ave, 7:00 pm (Michele Lindsey’s home).
