We would like to sincerely thank Elvehjem Neighborhood resident Karl Leas of McLeas Creative for donating his time and efforts to design our colorful new neighborhood logo! Karl also designed and printed new t-shirts for the ENA Board members featuring the logo to make us easier to spot at events.

ENA “Adopts” Elvehjem Elementary

We are excited to announce that ENA has “adopted” Elvehjem Elementary through the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schoools Adopt-a-School Program! Watch for details of how YOU can get involved! Some of our preliminary ideas include a warm winter outwear drive, a mid-school year classroom restock as supplies will be dwindling, and we will also be looking for volunteers from the neighborhood to help out at the school in various capacities from ongoing committments such as becoming a reading buddy, a lunch buddy, or a classroom helper as well as one time committments like helping out at the spring Read-a-thon or the end of school year Field Day. We are really looking forward to this partnership and the opportunity to support the school, we hope it leads to greater communication and involvement between the neighborhood and our elementary school! Check out the Elvehjem Elementary tab under Get Involved for up to date information on the partnership and how YOU can get involved.

ENA Board Seeks New Treasurer

The ENA Board is looking for someone to replace our current treasurer when she retires at the end of her term in April. We would love to have someone join the board as a Director at Large with plenty of time to learn the ropes and prepare to take over when the time comes. While accounting and QuickBooks experience would be helpful the only requirements are the desire to serve the neighborhood and the willingness to learn. If you are interested in learning more please contact Jamie at President@elvehjemneighborhood.org or Stacy at treasurer@elvehjemneighborood.org or make plans to attend our next meeting on Wednesday, October 5 at 7pm at the Great Dane East upstairs meeting room.

ENA Board Meets Next On Wednesday, October 5, 2016

The Elvehjem Neighborhood Association (ENA) Board of Directors will hold their monthly meeting on Wednesday, October 5, from 7 to 9 PM in the Great Dane Eastside‘s upstairs meeting room. Meetings are held every month on the first Wednesday of each month, and neighbors are always encouraged to attend! We still have one open seat on the board and are looking for someone who would be interested in joining as a director at large in preparation to take over for our current treasurer when she retires at the end of her term in April.
