We now have a newsletter!

We now have a newsletter that we’ll be sending out twice a month: once right after a General Membership Meeting (to recap major decisions/action items, approved minutes, and committee reports) and a second time ahead of the next General Membership Meeting, to share draft minutes from previous meeting and agenda for future one.

Dear Lents community,

The 4th Tuesday of every month is typically when we host our General Meetings, starting at 7 PM. This time, we’d like to do it a little differently: let’s meet an hour early, starting at 6 PM, to share a warm meal with our neighbors and get to know each other better!

Our meetings are usually about LNA business, and they tend to be packed with agenda items. But this hour before the meeting is meant to be packed with good conversation and delicious food.

In preparation for the event, think of something that you might like to share about yourself with your neighbors. Do you have a special family tradition? A cool project that you’re working on? Something that you’re passionate about?

We look forward to getting to know you better!

Please RSVP so that we order enough food for everyone.
