PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
Spring Cleanup is scheduled for June 4, 2022. Arlington County trucks are scheduled to come around Arlington Mill to pick up old furniture, wood, electronic devices or any similar disposables that regular trash does not take on a weekly basis.
Janeth and Noreen will visit neighbors in the duplex area with flyers and information. The goal is to build membership by giving people information about our association while also letting them know about June 4th.
Depending on the response of old and new neighbors we will assess doing an activity at one of parks in person.
Our website is now updated and working at arlingtonmill.org for anyone wishing to get more information about our activities.
Our next meeting will be July 19, 2022 at 7:00 pm. We hope to see you; this meeting was adjourned by Cate Harrington at 8:05 pm.
