Even in the terrible weather Tildenites are active!

The weather outside may be frightening, but it still can't keep Tilden members from contributing to our community.

On Tuesday, February 24, the Gramercy Neighborhood Association will hold the Opening Night Reception for its Annual Art Show. Tilden Executive Committee Member Alan Krevis is GNA's Board President. The Reception will be held at the National Arts Club (15 Gramercy Park South, just off Irving Place) from 6-8 pm; admission is free. The show, which runs from February 24 through February 28, features art work by Tilden Vice-President Claude L. Winfield.

Janice Plumer, Tilden Executive Committee Member, was asked by the Union Square Community Coalition to review the last three years of USCC's financial records (a major task). Janice recently completed the review.

On Wednesday, Executive Committee Shelley Winfield attended Baruch College's Newman Institute's Affordable Housing Conference, along with several other Club members, and spoke during the follow-up to the morning session.

These are just a few of the ways Tilden members are active in our community.
