“Is That You, Neighbor?” was appropriately named for last night’s KFNA Annual Meeting and Election for your community nonprofit board! Over 40 neighbors braved the frigid temps to enjoy warm food and conversation at The Aliveness Project last evening. Most arrived so bundled from the elements we actually greeted them with ”Welcome! Is that you in there?!”
Current and outgoing board members shared their reasons for enjoying volunteering for KFNA and what they have received in return for their service to their community. Self-interest in creating community prevailed as a reason to volunteer with KFNA, but the return each board member has received in fun and actual friendships has been surpassing to them and greater than most of them expected.
To read the 2013 KFNA Annual Report of Accomplishments presented at the meeting please visit here. If there are projects you would like to get involved with simply contact us at email@example.com!

When? Mon. Jan. 27, 6:00 PM Potluck and Social Time/ 7:00 PM Meeting
Where? The Aliveness Project, 3808 Nicollet Ave., 2nd Floor
Warm up with a warm and tasty potluck provided by the KFNA Board Members and attending community members and revel in a night out with neighbors, new and old! Besides being fun, we need you at this meeting because you neighbors are the ones who interview and elect your fellow neighbors to serve on your neighborhood nonprofit board of directors!
You can even be one of those board members, if you’d like— learn more by attending the board recruitment party on January 15, or simply nominate yourself at the Annual Meeting. Each KFNA Board member serves a two-year term, and attends monthly board meetings the 2nd Wednesday evening of each month.
We expect the Annual Meeting to last until about 8:30 PM, at which point all will be invited to help us clean up and retire next door to Blackbird, where we will celebrate the new Board Elect with Happy Hour beginning at 9 PM!
Tours of the new Aliveness Project site will be available from 5:45-6:30 PM for interested neighbors.
