MidNorth Community Theater Night hits home

MidNorth Community Theater Night drew in some new faces, including one of MidNorth's founders, Marj Barry.  What an inspiration she and her team of neighborhood preservationists are for all of us!  We hope to collect her story and post it to this site in the near future. The Victory Gardens production of "Native Gardens" was right up our alley, with non-stop laughs that hit very close to our neighborhood organization!  It reminded us that "all politics is local"!! Thank you to Tamara Maple for planning and organizing the event, which included delicious catering from Smoque.  Thank you also to Victory Gardens for supplying the delicious cocktails!  We look forward to our next event.

Dear Mid-North resident,

We are glad that you are part of the vibrant Mid-North neighborhood.  If we don’t already know you, we hope to meet you soon.

It has been a busy fall.  On September 11, we had a block party on Cleveland.  We enjoyed the jazz sounds of Charlie Freund’s band, the “And of Four” and enjoyed the spectacular weather with neighbors new and old.  Kids enjoyed running around on the empty street and we received ample positive feedback.  We hope to continue this tradition in the future.

Also in September, we held our annual meeting and elected a new Board of Directors.  I am honored to have been elected as President and proud to serve with such a talented and diverse group of people who care deeply about their community.  I look forward to a great two years with this group.  I know I speak on behalf of the entire board when I say that we hope to be transparent about our process, articulate about our decisions and hope to involve as many members of the community as possible in our organization to foster a deep sense of community.

If you are not already a member, I encourage you to join.  We hold monthly meetings to discuss local and citywide issues that are important to our members.  We have been engaged in neighborhood issues for decades and have worked to protect the unique architectural features that make our corner of the city so special, and we look forward to continuing that work so Mid-North is thriving for future generations to enjoy.

Again, we hope to see you soon at one of our meetings!
