In 2008, my husband and I moved to the neighborhood expecting our first child. We moved here because of the great location, school and homes. However, soon after moving here I realized that the people and the strong community we create are what I love most about Sabin. I joined the Sabin Community Association because I wanted to work with enthusiastic neighbors to continue creating a terrific place to live.
Over the past five years, my primary contribution has been editing the Sabin Community Association Newsletter (SCAN). In addition, I have served on the Communications Committee, helped organize our twice-yearly neighborhood meetings, chaired the Nominating Committee to recruit new board members, and
offered elbow grease to our annual Sabin Clean-Up.
Just this June, I took on the chair position of the Sabin Community Association. I am excited to work with a fun, talented group of people and to continue important work of the SCA. I also hope to grow some of our existing sustainability initiatives into a strategic, local response to climate change, joining other local movements around the globe.
Watching my eldest daughter (I have two girls, 5 and 2-1/2 years old) finding her way as a kindergartner at Sabin School, I reflect on the new beginnings that so many of us are starting as fall settles in. I wish you well in your transitions. I hope to connect with you at the SCA potluck, at International Walk + Bike to School Day, at the Sustainability Committee formation meetings, or in another capacity in the months ahead.
The Sabin Community Association will soon kick off a revamped "welcome" program that entails hand delivering a welcome letter to new residents of our community. In addition to welcoming our new neighbors, the letters describe ways to become involved in neighborhood activities and include discount coupons for
more than a dozen local businesses, as a way to introduce new residents to the vibrant array of Sabin-located and Sabin-owned businesses.
We’d love your help! If you’d like to welcome our new neighbors, please email Michelle at: MichelleGanowJones@yahoo.com.
On Wednesday, October 9th Sabin School will participate in International Walk + Bike to School Day!
We will join together with over 4 million kids in more than 40 countries to take strides to make ourselves healthier and our world a better place. Our steps are real action toward solving the health, economic and environmental problems that our communities face today. This one day event can be a catalyst for habitual, healthy activity--for ourselves and kids as well as our environment. Providing them with positive experiences walking and biking to school will pave the way for being physically active throughout their lives!
Did I mention prizes and swag?! We will have a drawing for a Nutcase Helmet! We'll also have other fun freebies given to us by Oregon Safe Routes to School. Hot chocolate will be provided for the early arrivals! Please contact Liberty Wilson, email@example.com, if you would like to help volunteer with this event or future events.
