S.E.A.L. meeting update

Monthly South End Advocacy League

Business Meeting

The nominations for the Board of Director positions were reviewed and organization members are asked to have votes placed by this Friday (4/29) by 5PM.  Members should be receiving an email with the nominees for the positions of President, VP, Treasurer, and Secretary.  Please contact the Group if you are a member and have not received the information.

The Forge will be celebrating the official opening of its new location on Lewis Street this Friday.  Hopefully, you can make it to enjoy some of the festivities and learn a little more about the mission of the Forge.

Upcoming festivals and events were discussed, including the return of City Market, as well as Fun Fourth.  City Market truly captures the feel of the South End District, and we are excited about its return May 19th.  The South End will also have a larger representation at this years Fun Fourth as the Innovation area is slated to cross the tracks.  Additionally, while not formalized, we are looking forward to hosting a “pre-event” for this years Brews Festival.  We will keep you up to date as we learn more of the specifics.    Lastly, while the Folk Festival is still several months away, there was some discussion of a South End District event to complement the larger downtown activities.  Again, we will keep people up to date as plans become clarified.

The next meeting will be a social on May 12th at 6PM.  The meeting location should be confirmed soon.
