Neighborhood Issues
Area 1 in great need! Can you help?
Y our representative in Area 1 is now happily working in the Grand Canyon in her "dream job"...too far away to serve this year. Area 1 is a critical area in the neighborhood. 

An area representative does the following: 
 * are the link between their neighbors and the JPNA Board
   * share neighbors' concerns, report other happenings in your Area
   * distribute Door Hangers announcing special events, such as Quarterly Meetings 
or other neighborhood-wide events. 
   * are voting members of the Board

Think about it and contact Suzanne, head of the nomination committee: 
Doorhangers announce Quarterly Info Meeting!  

Area  representatives will be distributing doorhangers next weekend.  

The flip side talks taxes;
1-Did you know that your Arizona Tax Credit could go to support your neighborhood school?
2- Did you know that your neighborhood has a non-profit to which you can make charitable donations ...and those donations fund projects that improve your neighborhood?
3-Did you know that joining the neighborhood association for only $15 helps pay for the web-site, this e-news, green projects and the cost of advocating for the neighborhood.

A return envelope is even provided for you!
(Thanks area reps, and your family and friends who help)
