Block Association Finances and Other News from the Treasury
- Aaron Albano spoke about the bulletin board that was recently received to embellish the Community Garden. It was initially the wrong size, but he sent it back and received the correct size soon after. Plans to have someone help with the cement part of putting up the board and because this will be a big job, it will be a deduction from the Block Association’s bank account.
- As of May 18th, 2011 there are 16 Block Association Members and 29 active members of the Garden.
- Aaron Albano also spoke about working on a Kickstarter campaign for the Community Garden gate. After explaining what makes a Kickstarter campaign successful, he mentioned that we could also get local businesses to match whatever the Block Association fund raises. We will need between $6,000 and $8,000 to ensure we can pay for the entire job. Plans to have more information about the gate at the next meeting.
