Greetings everyone and welcome to Fall!
And welcome to a new chapter in the communications for the Moss Bradley Residential Association. For the past few years, this newsletter and accompanying website have been produced and maintained by Carolina and Steve Erke. Before that, by Kelly Kolton. As life is forever moving and changing, so it has for the Erke’s who we thank for their years of dedication to enhancing the communication of our membership. We wish them well with their business ventures.
As one chapter closes, another begins. I’d like to introduce all of you to our new “team” that will handle a variety of communications for our organization.
Colleen Johnson and Mary Ann Armbruster will be handling the responsibility of producing the monthly newsletter and Sarah Gruber will manage our Facebook page. We thank them for stepping up and taking on these responsibilities. It’s an important role they all play in our organization.
This summer has been atypical as we usually take a hiatus from membership meetings and board activities. However, this summer brought us a number of items that involved both entities.
The most notable, Washington School, called for two special membership meetings to review and ultimately accept the plan from Sam Mach and his wife, Thai Lam Phung, for a Buddhist Temple to inhabit the former school.
On Tuesday, September 8th, City Council approved the sale and authorized the City Manager to draft and execute the purchase contract. Mr. Mach now must perform his due diligence and close on the property.
We will continue to work with the city and Mr. Mach on the establishment of the temple. I know we all hope for this to be a success and add another layer to our already diverse neighborhood.
