Technology Access and Change in Tuesday’s TNA Meeting
TNA will be joining with Connect.DC next Tuesday, September 27th for a conversation on technology needs and programs for Ward 5 residents. We will still be meeting at the Trinidad Recreation Center but the meeting will start at 6:30 pm (instead of the usual 7:00 pm start time).
We look forward to seeing you there and learning more about the Connected Communities Initiative and how we can increase internet access for residents, businesses and community institutions in our neighborhood.
There is an Event Brite link where you can register (Yes, we know that assumes internet access when we are going to a meeting on increasing access where it is limited. If you cannot access the link, please show up anyway!).
Heat Emergency/Saturday Neighborhood Clean Up Cancelled
While fall weather will be here soon, the Capital Weather Gang report for this weekend is for oppressive humidity, high dew points and heat index values toward 105 degrees. Given Saturday’s weather forecast, the monthly clean up in Trinidad will be cancelled. If you can get out later in the week ahead or in the very early hours or late evening when the heat is not as oppressive, we hope you will continue to sweep or pick up trash in areas near your home. We do not want people out in the high heat and sun of the day to clean. It is safer for everyone indoors or cool areas when temperatures are so high.
The DC government has extended hours of the spray parks and they will be open this weekend. Please be mindful of heat emergency conditions and continue to watch out for neighbors that may need access to a cooling center. You can access information about heat emergencies on the DC website.
Stay hydrated and enjoy your weekend!
