AHLOA President, Jack Keenan, and AHLOA Trustee, Lynn Cruser participated in Avalon's National Night out held on August 7th. The theme of our booth was Bike Safety. The kids really enjoyed answering the bike safety questions and getting fun bike prizes. Everyone also enjoyed our free popcorn and candy. The Avalon "Blue Boomer" bike also made it to the booth. Many parents commented to Jack that they were happy to see that we were talking with the kids about bike safety. Fun was had by all. Perhaps this theme will become a new AHLOA tradition!

During the July 14 AHLOA monthly Trustee meeting, many concerns and recommendations were raised by attendees addressing the Avalon construction boom and resulting problems for neighbors adjacent to work sites. The concerns raised at the monthly meeting echoed many of the same issues and recommendations presented at the recent June 13, June 27 and July 11 Council meetings. As a result of the input from the July 14th meeting, AHLOA Officers and Trustees considered the input of the attendees, and sent a summary letter dated July 21st with specific recommendations to to Council President, with cc's to the Mayor and Business Administrator. This topic will likely get additional attention at the upcoming AHLOA Annual Membership meeting on August 11th at Community Hall.
