Holme Circle civic group to meet

Start­Frag­ment

The Holme Circle Civic As­so­ci­ation can of­fer a lot to res­id­ents of the neigh­bor­hood. But the group’s ef­forts have been hindered of late by a short­age of par­ti­cip­a­tion by those who would stand to be­ne­fit from a strong civic as­so­ci­ation, ac­cord­ing to its pres­id­ent, Joe Raz­ler.

So, the 20 or so act­ive mem­bers are launch­ing a ma­jor mem­ber­ship drive in hope of at­tract­ing some new blood. Neigh­bor­hood res­id­ents are in­vited to at­tend the next HCCA gen­er­al mem­ber­ship meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, June 27, at 7 p.m., in the St. Jerome’s School lib­rary, Stam­ford and Col­fax streets.

Mem­ber­ship re­cruit­ment will top the agenda, Raz­ler said, but the as­so­ci­ation can of­fer a lot to res­id­ents in the way of pro­tect­ing their com­munity.

The civic group rep­res­ents the neigh­bor­hood on all zon­ing ap­plic­a­tions and ap­peals; net­works with loc­al po­lice to im­prove pub­lic safety and qual­ity of life; and is work­ing on a beau­ti­fic­a­tion pro­ject for Holme Av­en­ue at the heart of the com­munity.

Meet­ings are free to at­tend but res­id­ents should come pre­pared with com­plaints and with ideas for ways to im­prove the neigh­bor­hood. ••
