GPRA Volunteers Needed! 

  • Our neighborhood’s most critical need is for a Public Safety Committee and Chair- a team of concerned neighbors from the 10 districts within our association boundaries and a leader to promote good public safety practices among neighbors and to intereact with RPD officers and leadership and our association Board on a regular basis to address issues within Ginter Park.
  • GPRA President Susan Rebillot has been standing in for the Public Safety Chair role, has been fielding and responding to neighbors’ communications, and has a scheduled meeting with 4th Precinct Commander, Donald Davenport and Lt. Robert Fleming Tuesday, May 3, 2:00 pm at headquarters, 2219 Chamberlayyne Avenue to review our concerns.  Contact Susan at president@ginterpark.org if you would like to contribute information about safety concerns or incidents in Ginter Park, would like to attend the meeting, or would like to volunteer for our committee.
  • Membership Committee- while our new website takes care of what used to be a daunting task of tracking Members and collecting dues, we need a small team to collaborte with the Board and with District Reps and Block Captains to residents, to understand their interests, to promote enrollment, and to plan membership campaigns and appreciation events. Email Susan Rebillot communications@ginterpark.org

Your time and talent has an impact close to home. Consider volunteering.

Our sincere condolences to neighbor, Stacy Luks, on the loss of Lola.
