Dear BHNA Members and Members-in-Waiting:

1. Your Attendance Needed!

We have a very important neighborhood meeting this Tuesday, April 13th, with a full agenda and I am strongly encouraging your attendance. While there are no crises with banner headlines in the American-Statesman to excite interest, I am concerned that we have a very good turnout for this next BHNA meeting in particular. We have two important presenters–a City of Austin Principal (Neighborhood) Planner and Charlie Jones and Jody Goode, Capitol Sports Entertainment, the producer of the Austin City Limits Concert–and we need to impress them with our strength in numbers. These are two issues of vital interest to our community. Our influence is ultimately based on how active and large our membership is.

So please do come. And please help us with turnout by strongly encouraging friends and neighbors to attend as well.

2. New Service: Babysitting at April 13th BHNA General Meeting

I am very happy to announce that thanks to Father Bill and staff at St. Marks Episcopal Church, we will provide babysitting at the April 13th BHNA meeting. Michelle Parilla, whom many of you know as the babysitter for St. Marks, has offered to take care of your children during the meeting. She and her 13 year-old daughter will babysit the children in Miss Becky’s classroom, the nursery. Her fee is very reasonable and, when divided among the participating families, it is by far the best deal in town!

So now families with young child can attend these meetings. Make it a special family occasion by coming for the Green Mesquite barbecue that starts at 6:00 pm., and then relax and enjoy two hours of the most topical meeting in Austin. It is not necessary but if possible, please let me know in advance how many children you will bring for babysitting. Michelle has offered to do this at all four BHNA meetings during the year, so let’s get this off to a great start.

Thanks. I look forward to seeing you this Tuesday evening.

Don Long
