Some neighbors have been telling me that they have signed up for Greenlight service but they were not asked to enter a credit card number for the $10 deposit. Note that if you were not prompted to choose a monthly plan ($50, $75 or $100 level) and make a $10 deposit, then you are NOT signed up for Greenlight. Here’s how to choose a plan and make the $10 deposit.
(1) Click on this link and fill out all information (including your address) and click “Check Availability” at the bottom of the page.
(2) Once you click “Check Availability,” you will either get a congratulations screen saying you are in a Greenlight district or a message that your e-mail address is already in use. Follow the appropriate instructions below based on this message.
(2) (a) Congratulations: Greenlight will send an e-mail to the address you entered in step 1. That e-mail will include a sign up link and password for you to use to pick a plan (the $50 one is sufficient) and put down the $10 deposit.
(2) (b) E-mail already in use: If you enter your e-mail address and get a prompt that the e-mail address you entered is already in use, then send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them to reset the password (be sure to include the e-mail address that is associated with the account).
(3) Once you get the new password, go to Greenlight’s home page at https://greenlightnetworks.com/. Log into your account using the e-mail address and new password they gave you. This time you will be able to log into your account and choose a plan and enter a credit card for the $10 deposit.

Elections for President, Vice President and five board members will be held at our Quarterly Neighborhood Meeting on April 25th. Membership Director Maureen Duggan is now accepting nominations (yes, you can nominate yourself) for these positions between now and March 26, 2013. At that time, Maureen will announce the candidates for each office and open e-mail voting. Members can also choose to vote in person at the April 25 ABC St. Quarterly Neighborhood Meeting.
Per our bylaws, the current President and Vice President having served two 2-year terms (4 years total) are “termed out” and cannot run for those offices this time around.
Please note the following:
- Only paid members can be (a) nominated for office, and (b) vote in the election (feel free to check your status with Maureen by e-mailing her email@example.com)
- Please e-mail Maureen the full name of the nominee and position for which they are being nominated (President, Vice President or at-large board member)
- If you are nominating anyone other than yourself please make sure they will accept the nomination before submitting their name (Maureen will also verify their intent to run)
- Please send all nominations to Maureen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that this is a separate mailbox that the ABC Streets use for the elections to ensure the nomination and voting process is transparent. Only the Membership Director can access to this email account.
Sorry that I’m a little late with posting these. You can find the meeting minutes from our January 2013 Neighborhood meeting here.

Hello, yesterday (Friday) i went to two events related to the 100th anniversary of Washington Grove, the 20+ acres of remarkable old growth forest –
accessible for hiking, leashed dog walking, etc, from the Cobbs Hill reservoir area (where there is now a new display/info board),
from behind Tay House, or from Nunda Blvd.
There was a daytime dedication and tree planting at Tay House, attended by City officials (Mayor Richardson grew up on Ericsson St – don’t know what address)
and School 1 children, and a fascinating presentation at Lake Riley Lodge by Larry Champoux in the evening on the history of Cobbs Hill Park
(Did you know it was a quarry?! And as a park, was a major tourist attraction? Or that on Twelfth Night for many years there were giant Xmas tree bonfires?)
and the building of the reservoir and the evolution of Lake Riley – it would be a wonderful presentation for our Neighborhood Association.
The Friends of Washington Grove are active in a fundraising campaign, in collaboration with the City Forestry Division (Reforest Rochester), to restore native trees/shrubs toward the next 100 years of the Grove (you can adopt a tree); they also sponsor work days where invasive species are cleared. If you are interested in more information or in becoming involved, contact Peter Debes.
I recently called the City for a dangling branch – they arrived promptly and an enthusiastic new employee was happy to share with me the vast number of trees the Forestry Division is responsible for, both on the tree lawns and in City parks – the numbers boggle the mind…
Hi Everyone. A young, very hungry, grey cat with short hair has been found on Harvard St. (between Girard and Homer). The woman who found the cat notes that he is clawed, sweet, and not at all timid. She is hoping to find the owner. Please contact Tom at email@example.com if you believe this is your cat.
The Rochester Police Department (RPD) has issued the following bulletin alerting residents to recent crime patterns in the East Ave, Monroe Ave and Southwedge Areas. Descriptions of the crimes and suspects can be found here.

The current board (Tom Hasman, Marianne Pastecki, Matt Alexander, Dave Burnet, Jim Hondorf, and George & Lorrie Lorson) was re-elected to another 2-year term. In addition, Tom has asked Maureen Duggan to stay on as Treasurer/Membership Director and Kevin Hamblin to stay on as Secretary (these two positions are appointed by the President per our by-laws). Both have accepted and will stay in their current positions. We’ve accomplished a lot this past two years and look forward to another successful term. Thanks for your support.
