NPU-S June Meeting Planning Session: Wed 5/29 at 7pm

Hello Neighbors!

Since covid, our NPU meetings have been virtual but earlier this year the body voted to have one in person meeting once a quarter! This June will be our first in person meeting since that vote and we are looking for community members to help us pull this together!

This June meeting, we want to focus on those in the community who are a part of the “Digital Divide.” These are community members who cannot or choose not to participate in the virtual meetings and we are looking for ideas, feedback and help on what we need to make this meeting a success. I am asking that you please join us for a virtual meeting on May 29th at 7pm to discuss and plan.

Our NPU is only as strong as the community so please do your part to make sure we are all represented! I look forward to our planning!
