Dumpster Day Event Success in April:
Dumpster day April 16' for the Lynhaven Neighborhood Association was a rousing success! Lead by Clark Leakins, Event Chair, we had 16 volunteers donating a total of 40 hours to fill one dumpster to the brim by 9:30 am and had additional volunteers who spent between 15 to 20 hours in preparation for the event.
There were 38 households who dropped off materials and 19 new neighbors who donated $20 each to join LNA’s 2016 “membership-donation” group.
Under Clark’s direction, other LNA neighbors who volunteered their time and effort to this event were: Dolores Mayes, Tony Madeiros, Pat Gorman, David Lindsay, Kevin Wu, Joe Gallegos, Andrea Chelemengos, Bob Bray, Sandy Sullivan, Susan Giles, Jerry Giles, Frank Ponikvar, Juwen Gao, Jing Xu, and David Stegmeir.
It was good to meet new neighbors and to get reacquainted with friends. These events build neighborhood strength, cohesion, and synergy. So, we hope you will consider becoming involved or more involved in the Association as we strive to build a stronger and more vibrant Lynhaven community.

L.E.R.T. (Lynhaven Emergency Response Team)
The LNA L.E.R.T. (Lynhaven Emergency Response Team) committee is looking for volunteers to help staff the many positions needed to establish our emergency preparedness program. We will need team leaders in each of our six residential divisions, and we need to know whom within our area is a doctor, nurse, ham radio operator, electrician, plumber, and security expert. We will also need to know of anyone with similar skills and training. Finally, if you know a number of people on your block, we need volunteers to gather information from residents such as their names, phone numbers, email addresses, occupation, number of people living within the residence, language skills, and medical disabilities. We intend to create a database that emergency responders can use to prioritize their rescue efforts.
The Lynhaven Neighborhood Association (LNA) is a group of your neighbors who volunteer their time to improve the quality of life where we live by working with the city, police and local businesses. Some of the areas of focus are traffic, beautification, safety and emergency preparedness. We organize such events as Dumpster Day, E-Waste Recycling, Beautification Projects and National Night Out (ice cream social).
Lynhaven Message Board
Ever since the Lynhaven Neighborhood Association's first inception a few years ago, Dean Sala has maintained a message board at Yahoo Groups. This is a great way for any LNA member to broadcast an email message or question to every other LNA member.
The whole concept is spam-free, since Yahoo holds email addresses in close confidence, so signing up does not open you up to unwanted emails. Check it out and sign up at groups.yahoo.com/group/lynhaven/
