NSNA February Board Meeting

There will be no NSNA board meeting in January.  The next scheduled meeting will be on February 9th at 7 PM at Grace Lutheran Church at 2225 Washington.  This will be our last board meeting at this location.

Future board meetings of the Near South Neighborhood Association will be held in the Mayflower Room (located in the basement) at First Plymouth Church at 2000 D Street.

The new location will provide us with a larger area to better accommodate board members, interested guests and members of the community.  Recent meetings have had a relatively large attendance.  We greatly appreciate Grace Lutheran Church allowing us to use their facilities for our meetings in the past.

August 5th was National Night Out.  First introduced in 1984, National Night Out (NNO) began as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.  You can learn more about NNO and how you can organize your event next year here.

There were many block parties throughout Lincoln that night including one on Prospect Street in the Near South Neighborhood.  It was well attended by old and young alike.

This was the 21st year the annual event was held on Prospect Street.
