July General Meeting

Friday, July 7, 2017

Hello neighbors,

I hope you had a fantastic 4th of July and got to see the fireworks along the waterfront. Summer is certainly here and there are lots of wonderful things happening in Harsimus Cove!

Please join us at our next meeting on Monday July 10, at 7:30 PM at Grace Church Van Vorst (on the corner of Second and Erie Streets). And bring a friend, because HCA will again be serving some tasty treats. We’ve got a packed agenda with lots of special guests. Check out the agenda below.

I’d also like to draw your attention to two upcoming HCA events. First, at our meeting on Monday July 10, HCA will be hosting the six candidates running for the Ward E Council seat in November's election. The candidates will spend a few minutes introducing themselves and highlighting their platforms. Questions will not allowed during the candidates’ presentations but please feel free to engage with them after the meeting.

Also the HCA Social Committee, in partnership with the residents of the Laurel Court and Saddlewood Court Block Association, has been working hard to set up a neighborhood summer BBQ. The event will be held on Saturday August 26. Stay tuned for more details at the meeting and in our next newsletter.

That’s all for now. See you Monday!
