1) Newsletter Delivery Delay

Your latest edition of Overlook Views has made it into town from the press but we’re a little backed up in getting them to the Delivery Heroes. If you’re waiting for your bundle, they’ll arrive as soon as possible (Tuesday latest). If you’re waiting for your home delivery, please be patient. As always, we’ll try to get your newsletter to you in time to remind you about the next OKNA meeting (2/18/14).

We’ll post the pdf version of the newsletter at our website: www.OverlookNeighborhood.org if you can’t wait.
