April General Meeting
Spring has sprung and there are lots of wonderful things happening in Harsimus Cove! I hope that you will join us at our next meeting, 7:30 PM on Monday, April 10 at Grace Church Van Vorst, on the corner of 2nd and Erie Streets. And bring a friend, because HCA will serve wine and snacks. We’ve got a packed agenda with lots of special guests. Check out the details below.
I’d also like to draw your attention to two upcoming Harsimus Cove Association events. First up, we’ll have a delegation of volunteers cleaning up our neighborhood on Saturday, April 29 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Great Jersey City Clean-Up! Afterwards, we’ll reward our efforts with refreshments. RSVP for the clean-up here.
And start cleaning out your closets now because HCA is hosting its very first neighborhood-wide stoop sale on Saturday, May 6 from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. We’ll create a map of participating stoops and advertise throughout the city. Adding your house to the map costs just $5 to help cover the cost of printing. Sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all for now. Hope to see you Monday!
P.S. – HCA will host the NJ Department of Taxation at our May 8 General Meeting. A representative will explain the “Senior Freeze” property tax reimbursement program, which reimburses eligible seniors and people living with disabilities for property tax increases on their principal residence. Help us spread the word to our seniors and people living with disabilities!
