The Eastwood Neighborhood Association (ENA) works through committees, governed by a Board of Directors and a voting membership, to carry out its mission. ENA committees meet regularly to work on a variety of issues and often partner with other community groups, business leaders and political representatives to tackle projects of interest in our community.
If you have a particular project in mind, or just want to get to know more about ENA’s committees, you’re welcome to visit ENA Project Night, held every 3rd Wednesday of the month at Blessed Sacrament School in the All Purpose Room.
For more information about Project Night or a specific ENA Committee, or have a great idea on forming a brand new committee, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
