HHPNA NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICE AWARD
Nominate a neighbor for the 2nd year of HHPNA's annual Neighborhood Service Award. We recognize an individual or business that is doing great things to benefit our neighborhood, often under the radar. This award looks to call out a person or business that has really gone above and beyond to enrich the cultural, historic and/or civic values of our neighborhood.
The guidelines to weigh the nominations include:
• Impact of efforts on Historic Hyde Park neighborhood
• Activities and effort in the last year
• Uniqueness of contribution
• Demonstration of civic value
Annual Meeting on Nov 20 at 7 PM
Kate Jackson Center
We will have a brief business meeting, followed by a Conversation with Tampa City Councillor Harry Cohen--why and how we want to promote, develop and improve our historic neighborhood.
Election of directors will be announced. If you haven't voted, click Ballot to mark your ballot and send to the Nominating Committee. Ballots must be received by 6 PM on Nov 20 if e-mailed, or by 7 PM if hand-delivered to the Annual Meeting.
2014 HHPNA Board of Directors Ballot
Vote for 7.
___Ann Altman ___Marylou Bailey
___Kathy Durdin ___Sandy Fasulo
___Michael Lynch ___Diane North
If you prefer to do it the old fashioned way: print this page, mark the ballot and place it in an unmarked sealed envelope, and then place that in a second envelope with the member's name and address on the outside. This allows for verification of a valid ballot, while protecting anonymity. Three ways of delivery:
1. Take it to the Annual Meeting -- November 20, by 7:00 pm, at Kate Jackson Center.
2. Mail it to HHPNA Nominations, P.O. Box 2990, Tampa, FL 33601. It needs to be received by November 19.
3. Drop it in the ballot box at the Nominating Chair's home – Sandy Host, 812 S. Packwood Ave. Needs to be in the box by November 20 at 6 pm.
The results of the election will be announced at the Annual Meeting, which will be held on November 20 at Kate Jackson Center. The meeting starts at 7 pm and results will be announced around 8 pm.
Let's sing along with "Singing in the Rain" movie on Dec. 2, 6:30 PM, at Hyde Park CinéBistro. We'll provide the lyrics. Durdin, Heises, Wyatts and Aikens plan to go & think we can buy out the theater. To reserve your seats, drop $5 per person in cash or check through Kathy Durdin's mail slot, 1820 W. Richardson Place. The sooner you send your money, the better the seats! Contact: Linda Aiken.
