A Sad Note to End February PDF Print E-mail

I am sorry to tell you that a stalwart member of our Neighborhood Association has passed away this week.  Bernice Curtis, who regularly attended our meetings, and who was that familiar face on election day, working the polls, passed away Monday, February 23rd.  We will miss her knowledge of local politics, and her energy in protecting her neighborhood.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could try to get the park around the corner from her house fixed up, and perhaps named for her?
