Thank yous, elections, and animal awareness
Thank you to everyone who donated items, volunteered, attended, bid, and purchased art at last month’s Art for Art’s Sake Auction. The event was a rousing success with over $13,000 raised to fund maintenance for the Trestle Art as well as other community enhancement projects. We are truly blessed to have such support in CY and Memphis!
The month of May is a great time to be in our yards. Perhaps you love gardening and yard work. Perhaps you prefer to have someone else take the yard work responsibility. Either way, the CYCA will be on the lookout for yards that are worthy of the “Yard of the Month” moniker. Households receiving this award will be featured in the Lamplighter.
Congratulations to June Hurt and Andy Ashby for their re-elections to CYCA Vice-President and Secretary, respectfully. I thank them for their continued dedication to our mission of making Cooper-Young a safer and more desirable place to live, work, worship, and play. They are serving two year terms. If you are interested in running for either office in 2013, consider joining the Board of Directors and get involved at a leadership level.
Although March was pet month in CY, let’s continue to be mindful of our pets as the weather heats up. It’s hotter inside parked vehicles than we might realize. Any pet left in a car, even if the windows are open a bit, are still subjected to high levels of heat. Please consider leaving your pets at home on hot days versus leaving them in your car. That five minute errand could be deadly for your pet.
