Don't miss our upcoming KMNA meeting! Neighborhood Disaster Preparedness and Cookies!
Updated: Oct 25
What: KMNA General Meeting with special guest, COB's Greg Hope, and a neighborly cookie contest!
When: Nov. 6th @ 6pm
Where: Bellingham Covenant Church Gymnasium
Greetings everyone! Please join us this November 6th for a topic that truly affects every one of us: neighborhood disaster preparedness.
Disasters are defined as events that overwhelm our local Emergency Services capacity for hours, days, or even weeks depending on the severity. In other words, we neighbors need to know how help each other!
Living in Bellingham means living in earthquake and, increasingly, wildfire country.
Please join your neighbors to begin learning from Greg Hope, of the City of Bellingham, how we can prepare, privately and collaboratively, for disasters of different scales and types.
For a better idea of what Greg will speak on and the absolute relevance of this topic, please refer back to these KMNA blog posts:
Bellingham Covenant Church (BCC) happens to be the perfect meeting location for this topic. Fortunately for all of us, BCC is making moves to become equipped as an emergency neighborhood hub for disasters through a grant process.
We will be kicking the evening off with a festive cookie contest. All are welcome to participate!
KMNA Cookie Contest Guidelines:
• Only cookies are eligible.
• Bakers must submit six (6) cookies, cookie name and a copy of their recipe for
judging to the Cookie Contest table by 5:45 p.m. on Monday, 11/6/23.
• Please enter cookies on some sort of plate.
• Cookies will be judged on appearance, taste, and overall appeal
by a panel of cookie-eating experts to be judged by said expert judges.
This will be a general KMNA board meeting. We will do brief updates on various topics including updates about upcoming road improvements on James St. and Telegraph Rd.
Thanks for reading; please RSVP; and we hope to see you soon!
~Your KMNA Board
