    EKNA June Meeting Tonight!
    This past summer EKNA and Friends of Letterly Green worked with Councilman Squilla and the City to successfully preserve the green space Green at the corner of Letterly and Amber Streets. We have half the money we need for the park renovation from the Cedar Hill Foundation but now we need our community to get us the rest of the way to a full renovation.
