Dear ,
Happy New Year! For those of you who don't know me, my name is Alex Lemberg and I am honored to serve as the EVNA's President for the next two years. I sincerely hope to meet each of you at (at least) one of the EVNA's many upcoming meetings, programs, or volunteer events in 2020. There is no limit to what we as a dedicated group of neighbors can accomplish if we work together toward the common good.
A more complete newsletter with lots of information and a meeting agenda will be forthcoming in two weeks or so, but I wanted to let you know some important news. The EVNA's public meetings have moved to a new and improved location and on a new date! 
Our first public meeting of the year (and subsequent meetings) will be on the fourth Thursday of the month. 
                               Thursday, January 23, 2020 
                                                  7:00-8:30 p.m.
                                            at our new permanent meeting location:
                     Ellard Hall - Most Holy Redeemer Church
                                        100 Diamond St. @ 18th
Enter on Diamond Street at the front of the church! We will be out front to greet you.
If you like to plan ahead like I do, here are the remaining meeting dates for 2020:
  • January 23
  • March 26
  • May 28
  • July 23
  • September 24
  • November 19 (note, this is the third Thursday because of Thanksgiving)

All meetings will be at Ellard Hall at 7:00 p.m.

I also want to welcome you to present pressing neighborhood issues to the Board of Directors. The board meets each month except December on the Second Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Chase Bank Community Room, 2115 15th Street. I merely ask that if you want to present, please contact me via email or phone in advance.
Finally, I want to invite each of you to consider, as we begin this new year and new decade, your vision for how we can improve the Castro. Then, consider a project that would help to achieve that vision. Feel free to write it down and send it to me. I guarantee you that your neighbors share the same visions. But this group has an unlimited ability to enact change. We just need you.
Peace, love, and glad tidings as we begin the new year. 
In the spirit of community,
Alex Lemberg
