Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Hope everyone is surviving the depths of winter! We had a very successful toy drive in partnership with Bethesda last month and we've got board elections coming up next month. Busy, busy, busy! Keep scrolling to find out about how to get involved, neighborhood happenings, and what we're up to!
General Meeting Wednesday
Our monthly General Meeting at the Reed Street Presbyterian Apartments will take place. This is the perfect first step to getting more involved in the community! Come hear what's going on in the neighborhood, meet some neighbors, and bring any questions or concerns you might have.
EPBN General Meeting
Date: Wednesday, January 25th
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Reed Street Presbyterian Apartments (16th and Reed)
2nd Annual Toy Drive
Oh boy, that's a lot of toys!
We're very excited that EPBN, in concert with our Public Safety Chair, Charlie Elison, was able to provide gifts for 32 children this past holiday season! Thanks to everyone who participated and donated!
Elections for the board of East Point Breeze Neighbors are coming up in February, and now is a great time to start thinking about volunteering!
We are always looking for passionate committee chairs and members and there will be plenty of open positions. Our committees include Clean & Green, Outreach, Zoning, and Public Safety. Plus, we have an opening for Vice President. Here are the primary responsibilities of each committee:
- Clean & Green: focused on providing the residents of the neighborhood with connections to city resources to help make your blocks cleaner and greener by planning block cleanups and planting trees.
- Outreach: updates content on the website, organizes business outreach, and collects block captain information. The committee also coordinates with other civic associations, community groups, and institutions.
- Zoning: facilitates monthly public zoning meetings in which applicants seeking zoning variances are able to present their plans, gather valuable public feedback, and gauge community support for their project before going in front of the city.
- Public Safety: helps serve as a liaison between the neighbors in the EPBN service area, the police, other neighborhood groups and city agencies with a focus on safety and quality of life.
Please let firstname.lastname@example.org know if you're interested in any of the positions!

On January 5th, EPBN came together at On Point Bistro to celebrate Mary Faustino, longtime treasurer and friend to EPBN. Mary has been with us since the early days of the organization and has helped to keep us running by ensuring that our books were always in shipshape condition. We're eternally grateful for your service, Mary, and wish you all the best!
