IN MEMORY OF OUR PRESIDENT LISA STOKES-VELEZ
Lisa was a great president and leader of the Neighborhood Council and served as its president from 2017 through 2019. She restored pride and confidence back into the association after some turbulent times. Lisa was one of the Council's first active members back in 1995 and served in various capacities throughout her involvement including secretary and vice-president.
She was successful in getting groups that had previously left the Council to rejoin and had a great vision for the Council's future including opening an office downtown and reaching out into the various neighborhoods and further helping them by providing resources through the Front Porch Program, another community group of which she served as a director..
Lisa led a strong and courageous battle against cancer that took her life in 6 brief months, she is deeply missed.
