A Final Note
For many reasons I have felt more than lucky to have stumbled upon my home in Willamette. I have lived here a brief 2 years and have met some of the nicest people I have ever known, my neighbors. For that reason I agreed to become involved in this unique and charming neighborhood. As a new member of your community and your new association president, I am asking you to consider becoming more involved in the neighborhood association by attending the meetings. Stronger participation with the neighborhood association meetings sends a clear message that we care deeply about what goes on around us. Most pressing at this time is that we do not have a secretary and desperately need one. Please contact me if you are able to fulfill this important office.
