Discussion on forming new committees

  • Suggestions included social committee (for post-pandemic), membership committee, communications committee, welcoming committee, clean-up committee. All could be one person or multiple.

  • In discussing tasks that would be assigned to committee members, and ideas for improved community outreach, the following suggestions were given:

  • Someone who's good at graphic design to do the occasional flyer

  • Newsletters could help keep people up to date on current events

  • Business cards with HCA info could be given to new neighbors

  • Facebook and NextDoor can be good platforms to advertise events by posting flyers

Halloween activities

  • A lot of attendees want to have some sort of socially-distanced Halloween event. Many ideas were discussed, one of the favorites being a neighborhood scavenger hunt. Several volunteers will create a concrete plan to post on the HCA website and advertised through Facebook
