Steele Creek Residents Association Annual Meeting is March 3

(January 23, 2011) The 2011 meeting of the Steele Creek Residents Association will be on Thursday evening, March 3 at Southwest Middle School (13624 Steele Creek Rd, behind the library).

There will be a pre-meeting from 6:30 to 7:00 when attendees can meet, mingle, and learn about non-profit groups and local government agencies who have set up displays with information about their services and programs.

Beginning at 7:00 Harry Jones, Mecklenburg County Manager, will talk about the impact of the county's financial situation on Steele Creek. Mecklenburg County Commissioners Vilma Leake, Jim Pendergraph, and Harold Cogdell and Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board Member Richard McElrath also will be available to discuss county and school finances and answer questions.

The second speaker will be Melony McCullough of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department, who will give a presentation on the Steele Creek Area Plan. (See also Steele Creek Area Plan Taking Shape.)

There will be more meeting and mingling after 8:00. 

STEELE CREEK OUTREACH will be collecting items to make goody bags for the street homeless (the ones that do not go to homeless shelters). They will be collecting hand wipes, juice boxes, pudding cups/applesauce, spoons, cereal bars, chapstick, lotion, individual snacks, and any other individually wrapped items that people would like to donate. This is one of many Steele Creek Outreach charitable projects.

CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL, in partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank, will be collecting dry and canned food for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens for the Pet Food Bank. The objective is to help families keep their pets rather than bringing them to the Animal Shelter because they can't afford to feed them. Animal Care and Control is located at the northern edge of Steele Creek on Byrum Drive.

If you are with a NON-PROFIT community organization or government agency that operates out of Steele Creek or provides services in Steele Creek and would like to share information about your activities with your Steele Creek neighbors, please contact us at info@steelecreekresidents.org. Tables will be available for you to spread out displays, brochures, and other information.

Although attendees can sign up for membership in the Residents Association (for $10), membership is not required. Everyone interested in Steele Creek is welcome.
All Association dues collected this year will be donated to the Steele Creek Youth Network, a program for at-risk youth in Steele Creek. The Association has donated approximately $700 from Association dues collected in the last two years to Steele Creek Youth Network.

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about what's going on in Steele Creek and catch up with folks you may not have seen for a while.
