STEELE CREEK NEWS
Residents Association Annual Meeting is March 3
2011) The 2011 meeting of the Steele Creek Residents
Association will be on Thursday evening, March 3 at Southwest Middle
School (13624 Steele
Creek Rd, behind the library).
There will be a
pre-meeting from 6:30 to 7:00 when attendees can meet, mingle, and
learn about non-profit groups and local government agencies who have
set up displays with information about their services and programs.
Beginning at 7:00 Harry Jones, Mecklenburg County Manager, will talk
about the impact of the county's financial situation on Steele
Creek. Mecklenburg County Commissioners Vilma Leake, Jim Pendergraph,
and Harold Cogdell and Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board Member
Richard McElrath also will be available to
discuss county and school finances and answer questions.
The second speaker will be Melony McCullough of the
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department, who will give a
presentation on the
Steele Creek Area Plan. (See also
Steele Creek Area Plan Taking Shape.)
There will be more
meeting and mingling after 8:00.
STEELE CREEK OUTREACH
will be collecting items to make goody bags for the street homeless
(the ones that do not go to homeless shelters). They will be
collecting hand wipes, juice boxes, pudding cups/applesauce, spoons,
cereal bars, chapstick, lotion, individual snacks, and
any other individually wrapped items that people would like to
donate. This is one of many Steele
Creek Outreach charitable projects.
CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL, in
partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank, will be collecting
dry and canned food for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens for the
Pet Food Bank. The objective is to help families keep
their pets rather than bringing them to the Animal Shelter because
they can't afford to feed them. Animal Care and Control is located
at the northern edge of Steele Creek on Byrum Drive.
If you are with a NON-PROFIT community organization or government
agency that operates out of Steele Creek or provides services in
Steele Creek and would like to share information about your activities
with your Steele Creek neighbors, please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Tables will be available
for you to spread out displays, brochures, and other information.
Although attendees can sign up for membership in the Residents
Association (for $10), membership is not required. Everyone
interested in Steele Creek is welcome.
All Association dues
collected this year will be donated to the Steele Creek Youth
Network, a program for at-risk youth in Steele Creek. The
Association has donated approximately $700 from Association dues
collected in the last two years to Steele Creek Youth Network.
This will be a great
opportunity to learn more about what's going on in Steele Creek and
catch up with folks you may not have seen for a while.
