April at a glance

This is going to be an exciting month for Cooper-Young! On April 9, from 6–9:30pm at Young Avenue Deli, the CYCA will host the Art for Art’s Sake Auction. It’s a great time to get out, see some friends, have a beer, and get some great local art for a low (unless someone is bidding against you!) price. Tickets are only $15 for CYCA members and $20 for non-members – saving $5 is a great reason to join our membership rolls. To purchase a ticket go online to cooperyoung.org.
April is also a great time to begin spring cleaning. It’s amazing how much stuff I’ve collected and carried from place to place in all my moves. What a great feeling it is donating those possessions to resale charities. In addition to the inside of our home, this is a wonderful time to clean out flowerbeds, trim back winter growth, and re-mulch. The CYCA will be on the lookout for yards to recognize as our Yard of the Month. Plant something pretty and you might be selected to display the Yard of the Month sign in your front lawn and be recognized in upcoming issues of the Lamplighter.
At the April General Meeting our members will be voting on amendments to our bylaws and electing both a Vice-President and a Secretary. Please come out and vote, or even better, come out and run for office. Nominations will be accepted from the floor.
As our motto says, “Life is good in Cooper-Young!”
