KSANA Neighborhood Food Drive Update
Congratulations and thank you to all in the neighborhood that supported our Food Drive in support of the Mid-South Food Bank. The drive was an overwhelming success. You donated over $700 in cash and over 360 pounds of food. All together the neighborhood donated enough to provide up to 2400 meals. What an outstanding accomplishment. We thank you all with a special shout out going to Ann Meier and Meredith Jennings for taking the lead along with our collection team of Patsy Smith, Nate Ollie, Lauren Ollie, Roger Meier and Jonathan Jennings.

Hello neighbors. Our neighborhood will be hosting a food drive for Mid-South Food Bank on December 12th from 11am-4pm at Balmoral Baptist Church (2676 Kirby Road). KSANA will be collecting non-perishable foods (canned or dry goods) and/or monetary donations on behalf of Mid-South Food Bank. If you are able, consider giving what you can. Hope to see you there.

Neighborhood Meeting – Mayor Strickland
We appreciated Mayor Strickland stopping by last night to talk about where Memphis has been and where we’re going. Good news about crime (down slightly), economic growth (up) and potholes (everywhere). There was a good Q&A session and the Mayor answered the questions candidly and honestly.
Great things are happening in Memphis and we’re glad to be a part.

KSANA July 4th Breakfast Celebration
In an effort to beat the summer heat and allow folks time to attend multiple events, we’re having a breakfast picnic to celebrate the 4th this year.
KSANA will provide breakfast sandwiches and beverages. If you’d like to round out the meal with other breakfast-y items (muffins, fruit, doughnuts, etc.), we’d certainly appreciate it!
We will also have our traditional Kids’ Parade around the church, so feel free to decorate your bikes, trikes, wagons, and strollers. Or not. It’s up to you (and your kids.)
Please RSVP before 8:00 p.m. July 1st!
If you plan to attend, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Cammy at 497-3420. We need to know your name, address, and the number of adults & children who will be attending.
KSANA Yard Sale – June 2
Our annual KSANA Yard Sale Saturday is next weekend, June 2nd. All residents are welcome to participate, but if you want us to put a sign on your street, you’ll need to let us know you’re having a sale. (Or you can put up your own signs if you’d like!)
Your start time is up to you, but early usually works well. We’ll advertise 8:00 a.m, but people will begin showing up as early as 6 a.m. but you can always tell them to come back later.
We’ll advertise in The Commercial Appeal (online), Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and Next Door. Feel free to share the news with your friends and family, too!
Please let Cammy know before Thursday (May 31) if you plan to participate.
Solar Eclipse Community Brief – Protecting Your Eyes from the Solar Eclipse
Taken from a NextDoor Post.
Are Your Solar Eclipse Glasses Safe?
A solar eclipse will be visible across the continental United States on Monday, August 21. Many people will be hosting parties, going to the beach, and planning camping trips to view this rare occurrence.
If you are planning to view the solar eclipse, do so safely with eclipse glasses and solar viewers that meet the international safety standard. Consider products marked with ISO 12312-2, which means they meet the international safety standard.
Find more information on choosing safe glasses from the Federal Trade Commission and follow these tips:
Use new glasses or viewers – Do not use glasses more than three years old, wrinkled, or scratched.
Follow the instructions on your glasses or viewer carefully.
Do not use homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses.
Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device – even when using your eclipse glasses or viewer. Those optical devices concentrate the solar rays, which will damage your eclipse glasses or viewer, and seriously injure your eyes.
