Pinckney Neighborhood Association Annual Meeting – Sat. Feb. 15th @ 10 a.m. – LMH Room D-South

This Saturday is our PNA Annual Meeting, and we have a very full agenda. We’ll be meeting at 10:00 a.m. in meeting room D-South in Lawrence Memorial Hospital (lower level).

First, a little business – we need to elect a Vice President and Secretary. Melinda Toumi has graciously volunteered to run for Vice President, but we’re still looking for someone who is willing to serve as Secretary. We would be willing to split the duties between two people – just meeting minutes and other PNA communications.

We also will have three speakers:

Downtown Grocery Store: Dave Crawford will join us to discuss an effort under way to try to bring an affordable grocery store to the property currently occupied by the Lawrence Public Library (formerly Borders). Dave is part of a group sponsoring a petition to urge the City Commission to convert the building to a downtown grocery store.

You can find more information about the proposal and – if you so desire – sign the petition, at:

There is also a facebook page for the effort named “Downtown Grocery for Lawrence, Kansas” at:

In addition, two local business owners will provide information that may be helpful and of interest to the community.

Taxes: Jerry Coatney of Liberty Tax Service on 6th Street will provide some helpful tips on tax changes that will affect filing your 2013 taxes and look ahead to 2014.

Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act: In addition, Shandra Ragsdale of Day Insurance Solutions, LLC, will provide information on the ACA. Shandra will provide general information about the ACA as well as information helpful to anyone planning to sign-up for healthcare coverage through the marketplace or exchange before the March 31st deadline.

We invite all of you to join us. This is a great opportunity to get to know more of your Pinckney Neighbors.
