Watching all the trick or treaters fill up our streets and sidewalks again, it gave me hope that we are turning the corner with this pandemic and hopefully by spring, we will be able to have even more in-person events. Mueller seemed alive with all of the festive decorations, ingenious ways to deliver the candy, and the creative costumes of the little ones and adults. Through all the trials we had to endure this past year with COVID-19, the hunt for vaccine appointments, the snowpocalypse, hybrid learning, and so many other challenges 2021 brought us, Mueller neighbors came together and supported each other. I was inspired by the generosity and kindness. I believe that is the true spirit of Mueller.
This will be my last letter as Chair of the Mueller Neighborhood Association Steering Committee. It has been my honor to work alongside the past and current group of talented and inspiring neighbors who have also volunteered their time to serve on the Steering Committee. Joining the Steering Committee has allowed me to meet neighbors and community members whose paths I might not have crossed otherwise and I have learned so much about our neighborhood.
I’d like to welcome the 2022 Steering Committee members. It will be exciting to see how the group evolves next year and the perspectives the new members will bring to the conversations. You can support them by volunteering for the different events the MNA sponsors and attending the general MNA meetings each month. With your help, I am confident 2022 will be an outstanding year for Mueller neighbors.
Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic new year!
