The Community Affairs initiative's inaugural meeting is at Town Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m.

Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace is launching a new Community Affairs initiative. He is holding the inaugural meeting at on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. 

Here is the official announcement for the event:

That marks the time, date, place you can start to be part of a new kind of Yorktown, as we begin an era of government truly of, by and for the people, led by a Supervisor who believes his administration only can be as strong as the citizenry it serves.

Yorktown is a community of many communities. 

To strengthen the spirit, the resolve, the unity of Yorktowners, the Grace Administration is convening a wide-ranging, far-reaching initiative on Community Affairs. What it will do is up to you.

How can the Town of Yorktown add value to your organization, your events, your fundraising, your volunteers, your mission and goals? How can the Town of Yorktown extend your reach into the communities who need you and who you need? 

How can we all work together more efficiently and effectively to improve our Quality of Life for the greater good?

For reasons of space, please designate one representative from your organization to attend, and try to bring a list of at least three issues or goals that are a priority by consensus for your area of interest or group. 

Our own goal out of the gate is to make this a working session to brainstorm, share best practices as well as concerns, and begin to formulate a unified pathway that lets us travel the straight and narrow to better times ahead for all our families, businesses and institutions.

Please RSVP to this email with the name, title (if any), affiliation and contact information for those able to attend. Feel free to call the mobile number below anytime. 

Thank you for helping us help all of us.
