Issue 3: July 2012

From the President – By the time you get this issue of the newsletter, summer will be in full swing. The Linwood Community Council hopes every-one is enjoying the hot days, and the kids are making good use of their summer vacation.

The Linwood Community Council was the host of the most re-cent Meet ’N’ Greet, an event where the three eastern communi-ties - Linwood, Columbia-Tusculum and East End – get together in a social setting to meet each other and/or reconnect with peo-ple in the area. We held this event at the Sandbar on Kellogg Avenue, and had a great turnout from all of the above communi-ties. Thanks to Greg Street of the Linwood Community Council for securing this venue at the last minute, as we are still awaiting the opening of the Double Barrel Brewery, which is where this was originally scheduled.

There was also a meeting of Linwood residents to discuss the plans for and the future of the Linwood Community Garden. A soil sample was sent out, and we are awaiting a response to let us know the health of the soil of the anticipated location of the gar-den.

Remember that your Council does not meet in July, so our next general meeting will be on Tuesday, August 28th, 7:00pm, at the Lindner Tennis Center at Lunken Playfield.

However, we are planning a community picnic for all residents of Linwood, to be held Sunday, August 26th, 2012. We have secured the Spirit of ‘76 Shelter at Lunken Playfield for this event, and are planning a timeline of noon to 3:00 pm for the event. More information will be forthcoming on this in our Au-gust newsletter, and also on the Linwood Community Council web site,

Please save the date and join us for this social event and get to meet your neighbors, as well as the trustees of the Community Council.

Best regards for a safe and fun summer season,

Tom Salamon President,

Linwood Community Council
