NNHS Newsletter -
“Procrastination is opportunity's assassin.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's just my opinion, of course, but I think we'd all have far fewer regrets in life if we took to heart the advice in this song. I know for a fact that I myself have a long litany of things I wish I had said or done before it was everlastingly too late.

From Adrian Whitcomb ('67) of VA - 11/01/18 - "Ask Mayor Price Questions, Support the Park at Town Hall!":
|WHEN: Wednesday, November 7, 6-7:30 PM, In
City Center, Fountain Plaza Two, 700 Town Center Drive (Building where
Waterworks office is located), James Room (1st floor).
WHAT: Mayor Price’s Town Hall
WHY: Be there for a rare opportunity to ask Mayor Price questions! ------- We encourage you to attend this meeting and ask questions about the City Farm. Please be civil so that our behavior doesn’t become the issue. Tell Mayor Price how important it is that we keep all of the City Farm as a park for everyone to enjoy and not sell any of it to developers.
Please attend. Our work is not over.
(1) We need to ask Mayor Price (and the rest of the City Council) for a Citizen Task Force to decide what will be in our park.
(2) We need to ask Mayor Price (and the rest of the City Council) to let us citizens on the property as soon as possible.
Thanks for your continued interest and support,
President, Citizens for Riverview Farm Park
Thank you for your diligence, Adrian!
