The MNA garden at Dewey and Driving Park needs your help this Clean Sweep!

Second CLEAN SWEEP project is the brand new garden area at Dewey and Driving Park, led by the Maplewood Garden Team’s Sarah Burton! The Team managed to get in some bulbs and mums before the snow flew last fall, and now it needs mulch and some more plantings. Look at how well those bulbs sprouted!

Maplewood Clean Sweep Project #1

Clean Sweep is coming on April 27th, and we need YOU to volunteer! Maplewood has seven projects this year, and we’ll give you details on them in the upcoming days. The first one is cleaning up the Gorge Trail with Mr. Maplewood himself- Bob Stevenson. You’ll be working hard, but also learn a lot about Maplewood and the gorge!

Starting on Monday 04/15/13 Lu Engineering will be inspecting the foot bridge that crosses the gorge near the zoo. They will be repelling down at times and checking on the integrity of the bridge and adjacent structures leading up to the bridge. The company will be in the area for about two weeks. They will not be doing any sort of demolition. Just in case you see people hanging off the bridge, hopefully it will be them!

The ballots for the MNA Board of Directors’ election are due April 3rd.  They can be mailed to the MNA office at 1286 Dewey Ave., Rochester, NY 14613 or presented at the MNA Town Hall Meeting on April 3rd at 7:00 pm.

On Tuesday, March 19, Lollypop Farm will offer free spay/neuter services to dog and cat owners who live in the 14613 zip code in Rochester.

To be eligible for the program, a pet owner must live in the designated zip code, dogs/cats must be healthy and between the ages of four months to six years old. All pets will also receive a free rabies vaccination and free microchip, to help in the return of lost pets.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call 585-223-1330 extension 111.

The Northwest Clean Sweep event for 2013 will be on April 27th!  We’d like your thoughts: where as a community should we focus our efforts?  If you have a suggestion as to what should be cleaned up, fixed or beautified in Maplewood this year, please contact Bill Collins at president@maplewood.org.

On March 2, 2013 The Rotary Club of Rochester NW will host a Mardi Gras Party at the Daisy Flour Mill. Dinner and Dancing is only $40/person Tickets available at the library from Shelley Matthews. Tickets must be purchased by February 23rd. Menu includes a beautiful tossed salad, a wealth of Cajon and Louisiana specialties, and crab cakes, and roast beef. Bring your dancing shoes – dancing starts at 6 and continues until 11:30. The money raised will support Literacy activities in the NW area of Rochester.

If you or your family uses the Maplewood Library at all, please take a few minutes and complete this on-line survey:
www.cgr.org/rochesterpubliclibrary
The library system is contemplating changes that you may not approve of. If you want your neighborhood library to keep the services you enjoy, please let them know what’s important to you!

It’s on! The 2013 MNA Membership Drive is underway!

The MNA works every day to improve our neighborhood, but we need your help!  The MNA has no paid staff.  The officers, Board of Directors, committees, and volunteers depend on your financial support through your MNA membership to be effective.   Read More →

Traffic has slowed to a crawl, noses and cheeks have a little more red to them than usual.  It’s official: we’re living in a winter wonderland. We’ll have pictures coming to the front page soon, but if you’ve got some that you’d like added, send them over!

Email communications@maplewood.org with your (under 4MB) images, and we’ll do our best to get them up to show off.  If there’s a caption or attribution you’d like included, please put it in the body of your email.

Stay warm and drive / walk safe!
