Updates February 21, 2011

Several important emails have been sent out to our membership base. The first concerns the date of converting the vacant lot at 431 N K Street into a green space. A survey was sent out about this. Check back for the exact date and time of the event. It will be on a Sunday in March. I will be meeting with Martin Cybulski (City of Lake Worth Horticulturist) this Wednesday morning at 9am to discuss the lot.

The second email mentioned a need for a Mango Groves Logo. This is essential for our publications, this blog, and potentially our Neighborhood Banners. If interested please contact us!! Deadline March 10, 2011 (ideally).

The meeting minutes from the 2/17/2011 meeting are now on the blog as well.

Don't forget to check out Anna Maria's blog -

If you would like to buy a brand new MGNA tshirt please email us. You can see the shirts on the events page!

2/17/11 Meeting

Last night MGNA met for our February meeting. The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office made a presentation on their crime reduction techniques in our neighborhood and in the city of Lake Worth. Commissioner Scott Maxwell took time out from his dinner engagement to drop in and give us some more information on the controversial initiative to re-evaluate PBSO and possibly recreate a Lake Worth Police Department. Commissioner Maxwell was the only commissioner to vote against the 45K study and is very supportive of PBSO. He urges ALL citizens to write their representatives to voice their concerns over this issue. Homeland Security also made a presentation and encouraged us as citizens to report any suspicious terrorist like behavior. If you would like one of their flyers feel free to contact me. Finally, March 1st to 31st is "Lights Out" for sea turtles at our beach. Please do not remove the spikes that mark their nests on the beach. See for more info.
