This week you will be receiving the February issue of the Allandale Neighbor that includes a fresh new look. Thanks to Cathy Savage, our layout and
design person, for the new design. We will also start publishing the newsletter
bimonthly so we can stay in touch with you more often. Cathy Yang and Tom Linehan
are the new co-editors. Together, we bring many exciting new ideas for upcoming
stories. Our best idea however is to tap the talent in the neighborhood for
“beat coverage,” volunteers who can research and report on Allandale-related
matters. One of the characteristics of the neighborhood that people said they
valued in our recent neighborhood survey is a strong sense of community. We
believe keeping residents informed and getting their involvement in the
newsletter and the web site builds community. The areas we’re looking for
coverage on include:

  • Events
  • Personal Finance/Real
    Estate Info
  • Environmental News
    (recycling, energy, rain barrels, etc.)
  • Food—seasonal
    vegetables, local eateries
  • Recreation/Fitness
  • Health/Medical News
    (Vet, Alternative,
  • Medical, Massage, Exercise, etc.)
  • Gardening tips for
  • Neighborhood Safety
  • Home Remodeling/Fix
  • School

Please send us an email and let us know your interest and we
will follow up with the details. If you have other ideas, send them along as
well to: [Email address: allandalereporter #AT# - replace #AT# with @ ].

Thanks.  And be on the lookout for the newsletter on your doorstep.
