MHNA Celebrates Merle HayDay during our July Quarterly Meeting

MHNA Celebrates Merle HayDay during our July
Quarterly Meeting

Please join the Merle Hay Neighborhood Association for our annual
neighborhood celebration, Merle HayDay, during our July 19 Quarterly
Meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Northwest Community Center,
5110 Franklin Ave. There will be a presentation about Merle
Hay, our neighborhood’s namesake, by our own neighborhood historian,
Pat Meiners, and we will cool off with an ice cream social!

Our neighborhood celebrations and meetings are a great way to
meet your neighbors and learn more about our neighborhood. They
are also a wonderful opportunity to find out how you can get more
involved in making the Merle Hay neighborhood an even better
place to live, work, and play. Please help spread the word! Contact
April Beck at 515-707-6386 to donate goodies for the ice cream
social.
