November 16 General Meeting -- Sabin Stood Up!

Thank you to those who joined the Sabin community's general meeting on November 16th, held in the Sabin Elementary School auditorium.

About 30 Sabin residents joined the evening's activities, which started with a social half-hour from 6:30-7:00pm with coffee, juice and appetizers. Three of our own Sabin businesses contributed to the spread: Charlie Wicker provided his Trailhead Coffee, Liberty Wilson prepared appetizers from her Tastefully Simple business and Whole Foods donated a variety of juices.

The first hour of the meeting included a presentation by Sabin principal, Andrew Dauch; recognition of Diane Meisenhelter, Sabin community’s Spirit of Portland 2009 award recipient; and presentations about the work in which the community association has been engaged over the last year. This has included a wide variety of projects in the areas of community safety, traffic safety, sustainability, outreach and working with the business community. In addition, we asked for community help with action steps for the future.

From 8:00-8:30pm were board elections. We warmly welcome our two new board members, Austin Peterson and Bill Youngren.

The final half-hour was reserved for the hard core who stayed to review the SCA Bylaw revision. Thanks to those who participated in this important process. You may view the revised bylaws on this blog. Final adoption will take place at the SCA spring general meeting.
