President’s Message Karen Emerson Karen Emerson, President SUMMER has begun! There continues to be a steady flow of food coming and going from our food pantry. It is so interesting to see what thoughtful things are left in the cupboard: toiletries, spices, formula, baby foods, breakfast cereals and picnic supplies for the holiday. Thanks to all who are providing needed food for our neighbors in […]

Update 19 – June 2021

President’s Message Karen Emerson So much is going on!   We are sponsoring Boy Scout Troop #1965. It is a new troop which will allow a safe environment for our young boys and girls to learn through activities and service. The troop number is the significant because it is the year the 19th Ward Community Association started. We have a small group of neighborhood children […]

Update 19 – April 2021

President’s Message Karen Emerson When I told Ruth that I thought I would write about the history of the 19th Ward Community Association, she was delighted! She had decided to pick the 19WCA as the Proudly 19 Neighbor of the month. Great minds think alike 🙂 It is not surprising that many of the same issues we are experiencing now are the same issues that […]

Update 19 – March 2021

President’s Message Karen Emerson  I was reminded that March is Women’s History month. I happen to be reading the Women’s Suffrage Movement edited by Sally Roesch Wagner. Her introduction struck me as most appropriate for the present moment.  She states, “As we move to create a more perfect union in this cultural revolution we are undergoing, we are creating a new history. Not the top-down […]

Update 19 – December 2020

President’s Message Zola Brown The 19th Ward Convention brought in a new way of communicating and a new President for 2021.  I enjoyed the Convention – especially the panel discussion – but missed the in-person interaction.  I missed trying a new dish or supporting a local pizza business and the raffle. This year was certainly different but necessary. It was good to know so many […]

Update 19 November 2020

President’s Message Zola Brown It is that time of the year:  boots, scarfs, hats and mixed-match gloves because, just like little kids, we can never keep up with them.

The November election may determine the outcome of your […]
