Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Hope everyone had a great Father's Day! Did you know the summer solstice also occurred on Sunday to mark the official start to summer? While the pools are scheduled to open soon and lots of other cool stuff continues to happen, we all know that summer in Philly can kinda be a bit uneventful as people take off for the shore or other destinations. So, how do you beat the summer doldrums? Why not get involved with NNA and work for the betterment of the neighborhood? (Or at least come drink some wine and see some houses on our Wine & Sangria tour with us!)
Either way, keep scrolling for more about how to get involved, neighborhood happenings, and what NNA has been up to...
General Meeting Wednesday!
Our regular Tuesday meeting has been moved for this month only. So, please join us Wednesday at the Reed Street Presbyterian Apartments for our monthly General Meeting. As usual, our officers and committees will report about their activities this past month, plus we'll open the floor to any new business attendees may have. All are welcome! Come hear what's going on in the neighborhood and bring any questions and concerns you might have.
NNA June General Meeting

Cleaning and Greening
Our "meeting" this month was really just an excuse to say goodbye to longtime NNA member and former Clean & Green co-chair, Jesse Leonard. If you don't know or haven't worked with Jesse, she's been instrumental in advancing the goals of NNA and the beautification of our community. She's leaving some BIG shoes for us to fill! (Good luck in NYC, Jesse! Come back soon!)
