Dear W 68th St Block Association Participant:

It was wonderful to have activity together in 2013 and to begin to form a street pride.

Please review the Thursday meeting agenda listed below. Most timely and urgently needing your attention is the “Food Emporium Supermarket Replacement Initiative”.

The link shows how CARTS (Community Alliance to Restore The Supermarket) is attempting to rally our community to demonstrate its need for a replacement market.

Please become a Supermarket Supporter by joining the specified facebook page and boost the chances for success. Numbers will greatly matter in this effort.

If a Petition has not circulated in your building, do let us know.

Finally, please print the announcement and post it in your building as we have not yet completed our e-mailing list for every resident of our street.

Your Steering Committee Thanks You and Wishes You

A HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2014
