Issue 4: August 2012

From the President –

Though your Linwood Community Council has been on recess in July, there has still been a lot of work and planning going on dur-ing this time.

We invite you to come the first Linwood Community Picnic on Sunday, August 26th at Lunken Playfield. Refer to the ad in this newsletter for complete details, but put it on your calendars and join us for this fun event. We will have games, door prizes and free food, cooked by members of the Linwood Community Coun-cil.

We also resume our monthly meetings on Tuesday, August 28th. The meetings are open to all Linwood residents and business part-ners, and are usually held on the last Tuesday of the month, unless it conflicts with a holiday or if there are special circumstances forcing a change. Again, check the schedule elsewhere in this newsletter.

We are also well into the process of starting a community garden. We have decided on the location, and have had soil testing done so we know how to treat the soil to get optimum results. Further information will be available in the near future and soil prepara-tion will be starting this fall, with the goal of planting in the spring.

The council is also working more closely with East End and Co-lumbia-Tusculum, and we have organized a business association combining the three communities, called the 3East Business Asso-ciation. If your business is interested in participating, please con-tact me for details.

As you can see, the Trustees of the council have stayed fairly busy in planning for a greener, cleaner and safer community. What we are still looking for is more involvement from the resi-dents and businesses in the community. Please consider taking the time and effort to join us at the picnic or at one of our meet-ings and tell us how we, as the Linwood Community Council, can better serve the entire Linwood community.

Tom Salamon President,

Linwood Community Council
