Did you know Urban Neighbors, your one and only downtown neighborhood association, has been around for 10 years!?!
As first reported by The Oklahoman’s Steve Lackmeyer, just over ten years ago, we were getting our start. We could write a pretty extensive post about what we’ve done over the last ten years, but instead, we’d like to talk about what we’re going to do the NEXT ten years, and how you can help.
The first way you can help is by joining us at our 10th Birthday Party, on September 14th. See the Facebook Event and Google Calendar event for the particulars.
How does attending help? Well, our birthday bash will be a charity event benefiting Positive Tomorrows, so the more that attend, the better. There will be cash raffle drawings for prizes donated by our gracious downtown business community, and all raffle proceeds go to our charity. The first 100 guests to RSVP AND attend will receive a special gift. Everyone else will have to “settle” for cake, FREE beer and wine! The event will be held in the Broadway Wine Merchants Tasting Room (NOT the retail store) on Automobile Alley. If you or your organization would also like to help us with raffle prize donations, it’s not too late, so please contact us!
For the Next Ten Years, Urban Neighbors is re-focusing its mission. We’re still your neighborhood association, and we will continue to foster quality residential living in downtown Oklahoma City. But more than ever we’ll be dedicated to civic advocacy, charity, and community involvement. You’ll see this reflected more in our events, in the speakers we select, and in the organizations we support. Please join us, and not just by attending socials, but by contributing your time to help make these next ten years more successful than the last.
