At our October 22nd meeting we decided to join in the Light Rail Grand Opening party on Saturday December 27th by having an MMDNA booth. At this booth we will distribute a packet of flyers from those businesses that choose to participate. Please check out the Business Project section of the MMDNA website at for more information.

Also included in the bag will be a map of our district with the museums, churches, hospitals, Light Rail stops and participating businesses plotted on the map. This map is being produced by two ASU students who will do it for their term project.

If you are a business that would like to participate we need to know by November 30th in order to get you on the map. We need your flyers or other items by December 12th. If you want to do this we are asking for $25 which will help pay our printing costs, the sign for our booth and food for the volunteers stuffing the bags.

For all residents and workers in our neighborhood, on December 13th we will have a grand stuffing party. We have 10,000 bags to assemble and it will be a BIG JOB. We will have breakfast, snacks and lunch available so please plan to join us for as much of the day as you can spare. We live in this area because of the amenities and services. Let’s support the restaurants and service close by.

If you are interested in helping out or want more information on this, send an e-mail to Our next meeting will be Wednesday November 19th at the Radisson Hotel, 3600 N 2nd Avenue (just north of Osborn) from 6:30-8:30 pm.
