SBNC nominates two candidates

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  Please see the below announcement from the SBNC regarding this year’s candidates for the Board of Education.

 

First, I hope that you and your families are healthy and safe.

This evening, the Edgemont School Board Nominating Committee recommended Monica Sganga and Jennifer DeMarrais to fill the two impending vacancies on the Board of Education. I am happy that we were able to stay on schedule and interview the candidates via a Zoom video meeting.

The SBNC had the good fortune of having four very strong nominees this year. Although Nareen Jabbour and Rebecca Ascher were not nominated, the Committee was very impressed with both Nareen and Rebecca during the evaluation process and hope that they will seek nomination to the Board of Education in the future.

This year, we will hosting our Candidates’ Forum at the Edgemont Community Council’s annual meeting on April 22nd, 2020 in the Greenville School cafeteria.

I am extremely thankful for having had the privilege of being the Chair of a School Board Nominating Committee consisting of 15 members — representing seven civic associations and the Edgemont Community Council — who served with extreme thoughtfulness and dedication throughout the nomination and recommendation process.

These are complex times and I appreciate everyone’s commitment to our community. What is most important is that we all remain healthy and safe taking care of each other and our community.

Thank you and regards,

Andrea K. Weiss

March 20, 2020
Dear Edgemont Community,
Please be assured that your Fire District stands ready to respond, even in these unusual times.

The COVID-19 virus presents a stark, new challenge, and we are faced with rapidly changing realities for us, our families, and the way we live our lives. However, your Fire District has adapted in order to keep our community and our GFD members (both career and volunteer), safe. We hope you will never need us, but we’ll be there if you do.

We do ask that you help us to help you. If you call for assistance, the dispatcher will immediately send us to your location. However, the dispatcher will also ask you a series of questions designed to assess the COVID-19 risk that you present. For the sake of yourself, the first responders, hospital staff and others, please fully and accurately respond to the questions. Answering the dispatcher’s questions will not delay the response (we are already on our way) or alter the quality of the service we provide. Answering these questions accurately, will help preserve the safety of our community and the first responders that protect it.

In addition, we encourage you to:
Maintain social distancing and limiting non-essential travel
Wash your hands
Follow protocols put out by the Center for Disease Control

Regards,
Greenville Fire District
Board of Fire Commissioners

ECC Coronavirus Assistance

We realize what a difficult time this and that no one is left unaffected by this pandemic. However, in our community, the burden on some is greater than others. In particular, some of our more high risk neighbors, particularly seniors, chronically ill, pregnant women, etc, are forced to put themselves at risk and wait in long lines at grocery stores. Others have taken the responsible action to self quarantine, but are no longer able to get out to pick up food, prescriptions, etc. This has caused demand for online grocery delivery to swell and they’re not able to keep up with the load, resulting in week long waits for a delivery slot.

The ECC would like to announce that we’re setting up a community connect to help those in need of assistance. We’ll coordinate and match volunteers with those neighbors that can’t go out to procure groceries and medical supplies/prescriptions. We ask for your help with this in a few ways:

1. If you need help, please let us know.
2. You all know your streets and neighbors best, so please check in on them. If there’s someone who needs help but isn’t connected via traditional channels, please let us know and we’ll add them to the registry.
3. If you’re healthy, please volunteer to make a run to store.

If you’d like to participate, please send your name and address to edgemontcommunitycouncil@gmail.com so we can match by proximity. All information will be kept strictly confidential and we’ll directly connect volunteers with those who need assistance. Also, safety is our paramount concern, so we’ll require all deliveries are left on the front-step to avoid direct contact.

The predictions show the worst of this lies ahead so let’s come together and get prepared ahead of time. This virus forces us all to isolate ourselves and disconnect from our neighbors, but let’s make sure no one is forgotten. We appreciate your help making sure all members of our community are taken care of in this trying time.

Thank you & please stay safe,
ECC
