Salemtown Neighbors Continues To Grow As The North End Grows

Last night Salemtown Neighbors had it's largest number attending an association meeting--since May--with 25 people present. At least 7 of those were attending their first Salemtown Neighbors meeting. We are experiencing unqualified success in growth and recruitment, which were priorities the association identified last spring as among the highest.

The highlights included:
  • A good-sized committee was formed to prepare for a strong showing at the Salemtown Neighbors booth during Germantown's Oktoberfest (I was really impressed that we actually were able to put together a committee of more than three people).
  • We started collecting membership dues of $15.00 per year per household/business.
  • We looked over the latest crime reports and heard the police tell us that we had made progress on our neighborhood watch, given our tremendous growth over the months.
To watch this association continue to stride forward and to make headway is exhilarating.

  1. The last meeting was really good. I felt like we got a lot done in a short amount of time and that the Germantowns Oktoberfest is going to be really good for Salemtown Neighbors.
