Dear Foster,


Welcome to the new newsletter!

And it's not the only new thing around here. We have a brand new holiday event packed with member benefits and opportunities to connect with neighborhood families. Check out the next article for more info on how to get the most out of our Holiday Tree Lighting.

We also have a brand new staff member! Marina Martinez is an engagement consultant and a FABA member who will be working with the district thanks to the East Portland Pilot Project and Venture Portland. Check out the link to her bio below to learn more about Marina.

I hope to see you at the membership meeting on Tuesday the 17th at Carts on Foster, but if you want to talk to me or Marina between now and then, you can reply to this email and it will come directly to her inbox.

Sincerely,

Matthew Micetic,
President of the Association
