Time to order luminarias!
After almost a year of hibernation, the Newman Park Neighborhood Association is reawakening. 

A General Meeting was held at the Friesenhahn home on November 15 and new board members were elected: Lynn Coyle (NPNA's founding President), Orlando Arriola, Andy Baca, Becky Friesenhahn, Robert Taylor and Jim Tolbert. 

This past Tuesday the new Board met at the Tolbert home and officers for 2015 were elected: Andy Baca (Secretary), Robert Taylor (Treasurer), Becky Friesenhahn (Vice-President) and Jim Tolbert (President). 

The Board made plans for the annual luminarias fundraiser. Expect a sales flyer soon at your front door. Along with the information about the fundraiser, the flyer will ask for donations from members of the Newman Park Neighborhood Association. Who is a member? President Jim Tolbert said that all people in the Association boundaries should be considered members. There is no membership fee. Instead, there is a suggested donation of $20 per household. But less is okay and certainly more will be appreciated. So give what you can.

Of course, donations can be made online at any time. Just go to and click on the yellow donate button.

I didn't know about the NPNA meeting on Nov. 15. Was a notice sent out?
