Neighborhood Summit – UNOE General Meeting-August 2018


Join us for our August General Meeting on Thurs., Aug. 236:30pm at the C K Newsome Center, 100 Walnut St. This month we’ll be in the Rec Room–just follow the signs.

Our August General Meeting will take a different approach and agenda than usual months. During the UNOE Board Retreat earlier this year, members sought to pool information that had been gleaned from Neighborhood Associations throughout the year. Repeatedly, someone said, “We need to ask the Neighborhoods.” From that, we’re launching the Neighborhood Summit format for this month.

Plan now with the members of your Neighborhood Association to be a part of this special gathering as we together…
~ Discuss the successes & challenges of Neighborhoods
~ Encourage one another in the essential work we do
~ Identify action steps for continuing to preserve, enhance & promote the Evansville and area neighborhoods

Neighborhood Presidents, watch for more information in the mail and/or email to equip you for preparing with your members for this gathering.

Everyone interested, check out the first page of the August edition of the UNOE newsletter “Neighbor to Neighbor” for ways to prepare yourself too.

Together we can learn from one another, encourage each other and discover ideas and solutions for continuing the great impact that neighborhoods have on our community!

See you at the Summit in a few weeks!

The public is always welcome.

Neighborhood Celebration Day 2018

July 28, 2018 is Neighborhood Celebration Day at the Franklin Street Bazaar. Neighborhood associations are invited to set up a booth and have an activity or game to share during the event. This special day has been set aside to create awareness of what neighborhoods do.

At your booth or table, you can do pretty much whatever activity you’d like, just no sales. Prizes are always a hit. Western Terrace is doing temporary tattoos for the kiddos. Another booth is doing chalk and coloring pages. You can pass out newsletters and show pictures of what your association is doing, while visiting with those who come by the booths.

You should bring your own helpers, tables, chairs and activities. If you have a canopy that would be great. Otherwise neighborhoods can be together under available tents. If you’re having a hard time coming up with ideas, we’ll connect you with others who’ve been doing such events for a while.

Set up is to be completed by 8:45. The event is 9:00am – 1:00pm.

For neighborhoods that let us know by Wed., July 25th of your intent to be present, an 11x17in sign with your Neighborhood Association’s basic information from your webpage on the UNOE website will be designed/printed for you and displayed at the booths.

So far, the West Sector is represented by Diamond-Stringtown, Helfrich, Poplar Grove, Western Terrace and Westside Improvement Association. The South Sector neighborhoods currently known are Culver, Greater Lincolnshire and Tepe Park. The East Sector will have representation from Oak Hill.

Please contact the UNOE office if your neighborhood would like to participate or have any questions.
office@unoevansville.org or 812-428-4243
