The NPNA Board welcomed Angie Steward as an advisor to the Board for marketing and publicity. Her first assignment will be to help promote events in Netherwood Park such as the coming of the food trucks. The Board also accepted the offer of John Vittal to continue doing the newsletter and neighborhood history research.

Yes, the food trucks are coming maybe on April 25th but it could be as soon as April 18th. Angie Steward, Cheryl Gerwin, Sara Mills and Susan Bennett are devising a plan to promote the Wednesday night events in Netherwood Park throughout the summer.
