IVS August Newsletter

I hope this finds you enjoying your Summer. There is some information to pass on to you, if you didn’t already know, Larry Totzke and his wife Sylvia moved to Portland, Oregon. This left the vacancy of president of the society which I, being vice president, have filled. The vice president is Mike Navarro and secretary is Mark Bair. Stephanie Harris is Treasurer. Please feel free to reach out to any board members if you have any concerns or questions about our neighborhood.It has come to our attention that pedestrian safety has become an increasing issue in the neighborhood. We will be focusing on this in more detail: retrieving statistics, speaking with law enforcement, city officials and emergency responders.

Membership Month for the society is June, We are reminding past members of renewals which are in the mail. You may also become a member using Paypal at our website.

Christopher Vidoni
