April & May meetings

Two general membership meetings remain for Washburn Neighborhood Association before the summer months.

We meet Tuesday, April 25th at 6pm in the Lincoln Middle School Library, and  Tuesday, May 23rd at 6pm in the Lincoln Middle School Cafeteria. The May meeting will be a potluck, so bring your appetite and a dish to share!

There are tentative plans for a neighborhood rummage sale the second Saturday in June, as well as a picnic that is a topic for discussion at the April meeting.

Come share your ideas, your concerns and your Neighborhood News!
