The GNL is currently looking for volunteers for Neighborhood Representatives for the Sector Representative Committee. Neighborhood Reps are the eyes and ears of our community and serve as a link from the community to the Ghent Neighborhood League. Neighborhood Reps create a network that creates awareness of community concerns and opportunities, including safety issues, beautification possibilities, etc. We will be meeting this Saturday at 10am. If you are interested in volunteering in this program and being an active participant in the Ghent community please contact Irene O’Brien for details.
