  • working from home,
  • a stay-at-home parent,
  • currently unemployed,
  • on vacation,
  • or just find yourself free next Wednesday

we invite you to attend the kick-off of the MSNA Coffee Club. No reservation is needed so just drop by the clubhouse around 10am next Wednesday, April 9 and grab a cup of joe with some of your neighbors.  The event is being organized by Pam Curry who has promised to bring some homemade treats to this first gathering.  We would like to have this gathering become a regular event so if this is something that interests you, make sure you attend next Wednesday.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our property manager or Board member Lori H.

CrocusAre you ready for spring?  Have you been glancing through gardening magazines and dreaming of warm summer days?  The MSNA Social Committee would like to invite you to hear a presentation on Growing Kentucky Ornamentals.  This lecture is the beginning of our new Saturday Morning schedule where neighbors gather to learn, teach, and share.

What:  Growing Kentucky Ornamentals in your yard
Presented by: Diana Nave, Master Gardener from Fayette County Extension Office
When: April 19, 2014 at 10am
Where: Clubhouse

In connection with Earth Day and the MSNA Gardening presentation, a group of neighbors are getting together to clean up and add seedlings, wildflowers and native grasses along the Masterson Trail.  If you are interested in helping out, please meet the group around 8am on April 19 at the trail head – near the intersection of Trailside Drive and Masterson Station Drive.  LFUCG parks department will be supplying plants.  We think they will also be supplying gloves but you might want to bring your own.  Volunteers are also asked to bring trash grabbers (if you have one), small shovels, rakes, or other planting tools. The group will take a break at 10am to participate in the Gardening Presentation at the clubhouse.

This is a great opportunity for parents and teenagers to help spruce up one of our neighborhood’s public areas.  For questions about the trail cleanup, please contact:
