YNC Meeting August 11 at 6:30 p.m. Election of YNC officers

Thursday, August 11th

Annual elections for the YNC board will take place Thursday, August 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bonneville Elementary School, 1145 South 1900 East. You must appear in person to vote. Loree Hagen, past YNC chair, and her husband Scott, an attorney, will be election monitors to insure a fair process. Positions include chair (only current board members can compete — per YNC bylaws). Two vice-chairs, a secretary and treasurer. Two incumbents have declared to run for one more one-year term: Jan Hemming, Chair, and Josh Stewart, co-Vice Chair. So far, three residents have declared for the following positions: James Payor, co-Vice Chair, Tom Lund, Secretary, and Jennifer Evans, Treasurer. Additional candidates can compete for board positions other than chair. The by-laws require attendance at three YNC meetings during the past year. That provision can be waived if there are no qualified candidates who meet that requirement. Please contact Loree Hagen if you wish to run.

Watch for more details, but here’s how it works: dust off stuff you no longer need, place it in your front yard on the day of sale and watch interested buyers flock to your house. We’ll create a Google map so participants can sign-up in advance, your location will be highlighted .

Join the “Friends of Miller Park

In the 1980s, Yalecrest formed the Miller Park Committee, a citizens oversight group. Based on comments as well as suggestions received from Yalecrest residents, the YNC is re-creating the spirit of that early group and formed the  “Friends of Miller Park.”  The committee is charged with maintaining the historical and environmental integrity of Miller Bird Refuge and Nature Park. This is accomplished through public awareness, occasional clean-up projects, bird watching, vegetation and tree plantings, and educational outings in the park.
