The February Board Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 19 at 7:00 p.m.
The River Road Neighborhood Association’s annual membership meeting will be held Sunday, March 22nd, at 2 p.m. in Lion’s Field Clubhouse on Broadway, just south of Mulberry. Your board of directors, at its January 15 meeting, set that March date as required by the bylaws.
Directors also named a nominating committee to find candidates to replace the two outgoing board members who will have completed their three-year terms. Committee members are Mimi Quintanilla, Bill Sibley and Nell Fenner Grover (me).
Rotating off the board are Larry DeMartino and me. I told the board I would volunteer to continue on the communications committee as your email communicator. (Committee members do not have to be members of the board.)
PLEASE NOTE: Annual dues per household will be $10.00 instead of $5.00. That increase was approved by the membership at last year’s annual meeting, to be effective at this year’s annual meeting.
Nell Fenner Grover, communications chair.

A fixture of River Road since long before this web site administrator had even heard of the place, Jill Smith will be missed by even the newest of us. Here are two moving tributes to this one-of-a-kind woman who was, among many other things, a devoted friend to the neighborhood:
