Minutes of the last HPOK meeting, on Dec. 1, can be found below
HPOK will hold its next meeting on Saturday, February 2nd, at 11 o’clock in the large meeting room at Westover library. We will be electing a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, and naming quadrant representatives.
We plan to invite a member of the school board to speak on the state of the Reed school project, which is scheduled to begin in September of 2019. The project will take two years, so this is a last chance to make use of the sled hill for a while.
HP-OK Civic Association held a general membership meeting Saturday, 12/1/18 at the Westover Branch Library.
An outline of key items follows. Details with current updates can always be found at our website, hpok.org

IV. Communications: Getting the word out to all ~650 HP-OK Households is tricky and current methods haven’t been adequate. We’ve formed a Communications Committee to find ways to improve.
