New resident Monica Pantoja of Macie Ave was nominated and unanimously voted into the role of Vice President of North Beverly Hills Neighborhood Association. I will work with Monica to help her transition into the role I've held for 7 years. Thank you for the opportunity to do so much during that time. I look forward to continuing to be active in NBH but in a more behind-the-scenes role.
Sylvia Garcia has volunteered to help with the production and distribution of our NBH newsletter. In fact, we may work with Trimble Tech High School and their print shop. We're still in need of a Secretary and Treasurer if you are interested in volunteering your time for either of these roles. It's a great way to be involved and give back to NBH!
