1. Volunteers needed.
The board of the Georgestown Neighbourhood has become considerably smaller over the past few months. Several board members have moved or are in the process of moving. It will be very difficult to host the usual activities (e.g. the annual flea market and barbeque) and to provide the usual services (e.g. this newsletter) unless neighbourhood residents step up and volunteer to help.
