We’re required to notify our members within 7-days of a bylaw change. Members, consider this your notice! Please see the bylaws page for specifics about the changes and please attend the AGM next week to vote on these changes.
Please join your neighbors on Thursday, February 8th, 2018 for our Annual General Meeting at [Artspace] at Untitled, 1 NE 3rd Street, in Deep Deuce. Each year at our AGM, we nominate and vote on new board members & make any needed updates to our bylaws. If you are interested in serving on the board or have suggestions on the bylaws, please email us. Members who pay their 2018 dues online by February 1st, will receive 2 free drink tickets. After the brief business meeting, we will hear from our special guest, Eric Wenger, Director of Public Works for the City of Oklahoma City.
Complimentary refreshments will be provided by our host, and a CASH bar will be available. And don’t forget, if you bring a NEW guest, and they join, they’ll get one of our UN totes (while supplies last)!
Neighbors, please join us at our monthly social at Joey’s Pizzeria, in Historic Film Row. Bring a friend that has never been to a social, and, if they join, they get one of our washable paper bags (while supplies last)!
Our speaker for the month will be downtown state house representative (District 99) George Young.
Remember that NEXT month is our Annual General Meeting, so make sure that your membership is paid up or that your subscription is active so that you get your FREE DRINKS (deadline is 1 February)!
YES!!! These bags are designed to last for years! They are made of PAPER and you can wash them in a WASHING MACHINE! However, and you knew there was one, DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER! A dryer cycle will definitely degrade its life. Let it air dry!
If you’re wondering how to get one, well, you should have attended our UN10 event! But since you didn’t, as of this writing we do have a few left. You, or rather, your guest, can get one if you bring someone NEW to a monthly social.
Neighbors, please join us at our monthly social at the Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar, Automobile Alley’s neighborhood bar! Just around the corner from Broadway 10, Sidecar is the perfect place to order a single-malt scotch after work or grab a beer and butcher board with friends.
Thanks to those that turned out at Painted Door, such a great shop! Don’t forget she has a silent auction going on until Saturday for items formerly in her restaurant. We had a plethora of speakers this month, some unplanned, but all very informative.
Avis Scaramucci of Painted Door talking shop:
Mallory O’Neill with Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership talking about the BID (Business Improvement District) Assessment:
Join your neighbors as we visit a downtown classic, Painted Door Gift Boutique, in Historic Bricktown. Our speaker will be a representative from Downtown Oklahoma City, Inc, explaining to members the recent BID fees they may have been charged, and the benefits those fees go towards for all downtowners.
Thank you to those that turned out at Stonecloud Brewing! We think everybody had a pretty good time. For those unable to attend, we presented a check for $2017, which we raised during the charity raffle at our UN10 celebration, to Positive Tomorrows. Here’s some video of that (apologies for the sound quality, it was VERY loud in there):
Then we heard from Representative Forrest Bennett:
Followed by a talk from a StoneCloud Taproom Manager:
Also during the event we unveiled our new banner (THANK YOU to our sponsors!):
And lastly, we got a tour of the brewery:
Join your neighbors as we visit one of OKC’s newest breweries, Stonecloud Brewing, in the historic Sunshine Cleaner’s building, just outside of downtown. Our speaker this month will be one of downtown OKC’s representatives in the state legislature (House District 92), Forrest Bennett!
Thank you to all that attended our 10th Birthday Party, neighbors, members, and supporters alike. Without you we wouldn’t be here, and without you this event wouldn’t have been possible. Your past and continued support is appreciated, always. Thanks also for your generosity, as our raffle raised a nice sum for our charity, Positive Tomorrows. We’ll be presenting them with a check for $2,017 at our October social!
If you were new to our events and enjoyed what you experienced with our organization, please consider joining, or perhaps serving on the board or on a committee, to help us through the next ten years. If you missed the party, here’s a glimpse of what you missed:
