1. Residents of the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood are invited by Prairie UU to share in “Summer Drinks on the Lenai” at Prairie UU Society this Saturday, July 9, 7-9 pm.  Bring your favorite summer drink, cheese or fruit and your favorite summer hat!  By the way, “lenai” is another word for porch.

2. Next DMNA Council meeting is on Wednesday, August 3, 7 pm, Prairie UU Society, 2010 Whenona.

3. Due to the fact that DMNA President Jeff Glazer is moving out of the neighborhood – to downtown Madison – we have a new president.  Our new president is Bob Hague, 4353 DeVolis Parkway, 218-1760, <>.  Bob moved up to the president position from Vice President as  prescribed by our bylaws.

4. We now have several vacancies on the DMNA Neighborhood Council.  If you have an interest in working to better the neighborhood and also want to make some good friends, please apply to join the Council.  For more information about the “job” of a Council member and how to apply, reply to this e-mail, and include your phone number.

5. Because Jeff Glazer is leaving the neighborhood, the DMNA needs to provide representative to two different committees in the neighborhood.  Anyone who is interested should express their interest to the DM Neighborhood Council through a response to this e-mail.  Here are Jeff’s remarks:

 I would like to see someone take my positions on various councils in the Neighborhood including: Allied Task Force and the Wellness Co-op which our organization is a core member. The Allied Task Force is a City Committee with appointments from the Mayor; its job is to ensure safety and growth in the Allied area and beyond. I became involved and was appointed by Mayor Dave to sit on this Task Force because our close and important relationship with the Allied Neighborhood; Allied is our neighborhood and its residents are our neighbors this task force addresses issues related to our neighborhood. Thus, it is important that we have a DMNA representative on this Task Force.

We are a core member of the Co-op and Susan Corrado and Sina Davis are doing a great job with getting this up and running. While I will still be involved with the Co-op (as a Board Member of the Allied Wellness Center and generally concerned citizen with specialized skills in starting up businesses like this one), I will not be able to represent the interests of the Neighborhood Association. DMNA has agreed to have a member sit on the Co-op Steering Committee (it meets on the first Tuesday of the Month at the MAP center at the craft mall by Home Depot).

6. From City of Madison’s Mark Winter about why the City hasn’t yet painted the bike lanes on our frontage roads:  We are still painting yellow centerlines. Will not get to white paint until at least end of July, sooner if it stops raining. Will get signs up before then.

7. Update on lost dog:  Piper, the lost Pembroke Welsh Corgi, was spotted this morning (Wednesday 7/6/11) on the corner of Woods Edge and Osmundsen in Seminole Forest.  If you live in the area, please check under your deck and in the landscaping as she is probably hiding.  If you have a dog you might get her to approach you which will give you the opportunity to step on her leash, but otherwise it is best to just call the foster parent, Megan McGuire (843-5757), Fitchburg Animal Control (270-4331) or the Dane County Humane Society (838-0413) as she is very shy and may run out into traffic if pursued.
    If we get enough spottings in one area we would like to set up a live trap to try and catch her.  We will need the permission of a neighborhood resident to set up the trap in their yard.  If you are open to this please let Megan know.  She will be responsible for maintaining the trap and dealing with any animals unintentionally trapped.
    If you spot her please call or email Megan at 843-5757 /  Please note the time of the siting and closest house address and/or cross streets.
    Thank-you to everyone who has assisted us in this search effort!

8. Marlborough Park will be getting doggy do dispenser stations due to the initiative of Council member Jo Kelley.  The DMNA Council approved purchase of a case of 1000 bags.  The City will provide one or more dispensing stations.  The Council is asking stations at 3 entrances to the park, one at the Milford Road entrance, one at Sentinel Pass, and one at the Apache Drive.

9. Two free events are coming up on the rooftop of the Monona Terrace:

Lakeside Kids presents West African Drum & Dance Ensemble, Wednesday, July 13, 10-11am, Monona Terrace Rooftop

Concerts on the Rooftop features Madison County, Thursday, July 14

10. Are you looking for financial support to help you return to school at UW-Madison? Continuing Education grants provide in-state tuition for adults with a significant break from education taking one class to get started with their studies.
