Save the Date: ONA Fall General Membership Meeting

On Thursday, October 24th, ONA will hold its fall general membership meeting.  Please plan to attend this neighborhood-wide event!  This is the perfect opportunity to catch up with your neighbors, hear from our guest speakers (see below), and renew your membership for the coming year.

FWISD trustees Ashley Paz and Jacinto Ramos, Jr.
Newly-elected Fort Worth ISD Trustees Ashley Paz (District 9) and Jacinto Ramos, Jr. (District 1) will speak at the meeting.  The district is putting forward a bond election on November 5.  Paz represents District 9, which includes all of Riverside’s elementary, middle and high schools.  Ramos represents District 1, a generally Northside District, which includes the Oakhurst precinct.  The main focus of the bond issue in Riverside is improvements to Amon Carter Riverside High School, including new permanent classrooms, as well as improvements to the kitchen, cafeteria, and restrooms.  The school, built in 1936 to house about 900 students, now has 1,200 enrolled.  Come hear from our new trustees on this important topic!

Lt. Alan McLain of the Fort Worth Fire Department will also speak at the fall meeting.  Following the recent house fire on Bluebird, some residents have asked for a presentation addressing precautions which can be taken in a heavily-wooded neighborhood like Oakhurst, where a fire threat is particularly acute in periods of drought.  So Lt. McLain has been kind enough to tackle this issue for us.

The annual fall social will follow the meeting...yet another reason to join us that evening!
