The newly-elected 2013-2014 Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association Council will hold its first meeting on Thursday, November 14, 7 pm, at 2010 Whenona Drive (Prairie UU Society).  The Council has 7 members but could accommodate 5 more members.  Residents from the Belmar (Fitchburg) and Allied areas are particularly needed.
Anyone potentially interested in joining the Council is especially invited to attend this meeting which will include an orientation to the DMNA.  New officers will be elected from among the Council members, and the Council will set up committees for the year.

The Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association along with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the City of Madison, the City of Fitchburg, and many excited area residents are pleased to be able to officially open the Seminole Highway Bridge to traffic with a ribbon cutting at 9:00 PM on Thursday November 14th, 2013.

Residents that desire to be among the first to drive across the new bridge can park either on the north side on Warwick Way, or on the south side, along the west-bound Beltline Frontage Road.

3 - Help Lay Stepping Stones at Allied News Kiosk, Fri., Nov. 15

Help is desperately needed to complete a small Allied community art/landscaping project before the snow flies, specifically on Friday, November 15.  
The Allied Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood Association (ADMNA) got funding from the city last year to buy and put up a neighborhood kiosk (a message center) after Allied residents expressed an wish for better communication about neighborhood news & events. The sign has been erected on Allied Dr at Revival Ridge, (near the sidewalk in front of the courtyard.)  
The ADMNA also had residents make stained glass mosaic stepping stones for landscaping under the sign.  A professional contractor dug down, laid and prepped the substrate already, so we need to smooth the pea gravel and hand tamp it a bit, put down a layer of sand, then place the stones and then pour, sweep and hose down the sand between them. There are 36 12 x 12 stones.
I have never done anything like this before but I am estimating 3-4 hours max. I would love to have anyone with experience, and if a landscaper or other business person wants to pitch in, we will put a special thank you to them in the next ADMNA neighborhood newsletter.  Call Chris at 236-2899 to discuss timing and other details. I will provide food and drink, tools and supplies.
