Welcome to our community news
Our first South Basking Ridge Neighborhood Association (South BRNA) Board meeting, was a success! Over 15 neighbors attended the meeting. The success of the South BRNA is a reflection of the commitment of the neighbors. Without you, there is no SBRNA. Members responsible for the development of the SBRNA include: Jennie and Eric Han, Anita Lee, and Manny Singh. The care, concern and tireless volunteer hours for this nominated Board means that they are dedicated to providing an honest, well-researched venue for the discussion of the topics that are of the greatest concern for the community. The SBRNA allows for neighbors to have their concerns supported and voices heard. The foundation of the SBRNA are the four C’s: consistency, care, compassion and community, and we look forward to utilizing this in all that we do.
