II. The Amundsen High School Principal, Mr Carlos Munoz, will address our neighbors at the Tuesday January 10th meeting. Thank you neighbor Stephen Reynolds for booking this important guest! Please contact Stephen at or Amundsen High School directly if you are interested in a "Friends of" Amundsen Group. He and local neighbors are looking to establish a working group with the school.

III. Neighbor Jim Javenkoski will speak about a "community garden" initiative. We think this is a great idea, very attainable and sustainable and will "brand" Winnemac Park Neighbors in a tangible way. Please attend the meeting or contact us if you'd like to work on a Community Garden Committee. The committee would together lobby for public garden space and help administer the garden.
