Halloween Block Party on Grove Street

by jj on October 20, 2014

Halloween 2014
Fri Oct 31st
Grove between Baker and Central

 

5:15pm Costume Contest
6pm to 8pm Trick or Treating

 

Grove between Baker and Central will be cordoned off to provide a safe trick or treating area for our neighborhood kids.  If you want to help out, please email Leela Gill at leelagill@yahoo.com.

 

NOPNA will again be taking candy donations at “the big tent” at Grove and Lyon so if you can afford to donate some candy, please do! Some neighbors spend hundreds of dollars on candy for these kids so the high cost can really limit participation.

 

P.S. please note we are not promoting this event outside of our area because we want to keep it for local neighborhood kids.

Confused about the mid-term elections?

by jj on October 15, 2014

Many of you may have received your mail-in ballots already.  Have you had a look?

Are you confused by some of the measures?  Are you wondering how Prop L will reduce gridlock or how Prop G will affect you as a homeowner?

NOPNA will be hosting a Pizza and Politics discussion on Sunday, October 26 from 2pm-4:30pm at Cyprian’s (Turk and Lyon).

Neighbors may research one or more topics or candidates and provide the findings to the group in a short presentation. This will be without politicians and minimal bias, moderated to ensure civility and stay on point. With 12 offices and 19 measures, we will adhere to a timeline and present the most popular and contentious issues first. Presentations will be timed and we request that presenters plan accordingly. Questions will be answered as time permits afterwards and an SF Department of Elections official has offered to be present to answer voting process questions.

Please sign up through our Eventbrite event page, so we know how many to expect and how much pizza to order. BYOB. .

All NOPNA, D5 and San Francisco residents are welcome whether you choose to present, participate or observe.
