Dear CIA Member or Friend,
Do you walk down to Beach Bluff Park/Preston Beach on any particular day? Misty or sunny - do you take the opportunity to cherish the space that is open for you and your guests to enjoy? I'll bet you do!
I have taken classes there to learn about what power we can have working together for the common good. They check out the new floodwall revetment and steps and tromped over the rocks. I tell them that 20 years ago this spot was an overgrown, inaccessible lot secured by a chain link fence. The transformation into a beloved park has come to be through the effort of so many volunteers who share the vision. The youngsters were inspired by the story.
Our monthly board meetings are open to all. Perhaps you would like to attend and get involved? There are many ways in which the CIA can impact our neighborhood and beyond. Access to the beach for those on or with wheels? Political actions nationally and globally to protect the sea and sand? Lots of opportunities for volunteerism.
We would like to continue raising funds for improvements. And, we want a cushion that will sustain us through storm (and drang).
Please help us maximize the way people can enjoy our shared space through your contribution of time or money. And thank you for reading this
