Scenes from ONSLRG’s Annual Meeting & Pot-Luck Supper

A good crowd of Old North residents and friends gathered last night at the former Parks Drug Store building at Crown Square for Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s Annual Meeting and Pot-Luck supper.  In addition to the opportunity to share a tasty meal with neighbors, the event provided ONSLRG an occasion to present highlights of an incredibly eventful last year and our ambitious agenda for the new year.  The members present elected 4 individuals to serve on the ONSLRG board for the 2009-2011 term.  These individuals include Dave Eisenbraun, Graham Lane, Stefene Russell, and Ben Sever.

ONSLRG Annual Meeting & Pot-Luck Supper Wed., Feb. 11

Please join us on Wednesday evening, February 11, for Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s Annual Meeting and Pot-Luck Supper.  The event will take place at the former Parks Drug Store building, 2720 N. 14th Street at St. Louis Avenue, and will start at 6:00 p.m.

In addition to the great opportunity to sit down and enjoy a meal of home-cooked food with residents and friends of Old North, the annual meeting provides an opportunity for ONSLRG leaders to review the highlights of the past year and present our plans and goals for the new year.  Also on the agenda will be the election of members to the ONSLRG’s Board of Directors.

Since the event includes a pot-luck supper, we are providing some recommendations for the type of dish you can bring to share.  If your last name begins with:

A through C….. bring bread;

D through F….. bring dessert;

G through K….. bring salad;

L through Z….. bring a main dish.

These are just recommendations to help us avoid having everybody bringing the same dish.  If you have a favorite family recipe that doesn’t fit with the guidelines outlined above, please feel free to bring that anyway.  If you can’t bring anything, please don’t let that hold you back.

For more information contact the ONSLRG office at 314-241-5031 or email us at info@onsl.org.
