2015 – 2016 Monte Sano Supper Club

MSSupperClub

The Monte Sano Supper Club is approaching its 17th year! Founded in 1999, the Club’s purpose is to foster friendships on the mountain. Each month, participants will have dinner with a different group of people in a small setting so as to be able to better get to know each other. Dinners are usually held in member’s homes, with the host/hostess deciding on whether to make the entire dinner themselves or ask each guest to bring a dish to share. (The latter is the most popular choice.) Each couple/household usually hosts two times per year.

  • Supper Club dinners are scheduled for the second Saturday of each month, but if needed each small group is totally free to change the date and time to better suit their schedules or enjoy a lunch or brunch.
  • On the second Saturday of each the summer months of June, July and August the Club members in town meet at the pool for a potluck dinner. Anyone interested in attending these supper potlucks is most welcome. Just show up at the pool at 6:00 p.m., bring a dish to share and beverage. Paper plates, napkins, utensils, cups and ice are provided by the Club.
  • The last potluck gathering for this season will be on August 8, 2015.
  • Please note that if the weather is bad or looks “iffy”, call Carol Edwards (256-489-5243) first to be sure the location hasn’t been changed.
  • Sign-ups for the 2015 – 2016 will begin mid-July just watch for signs. If there are questions, feel free to call or email Carol.

The Monte Sano Supper Club is an excellent way to stay connected with old friends and to meet new ones. Come join the fun… we’d love to have you!

Development Meeting Update

The plan presented last night was to have a mix of larger homes along with smaller homes facing inward towards a shared green space (29 lots total). Current zoning is for 14 lots, approx. 1/2 acre in size. Another possibility (not set in stone) of the plan will also include a small country store on the blvd.  We should have an updated plan with images next week.

MS Blvd Development Open House

Development Open House – Tuesday, July 21 – 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Monte Sano Baptist Church

As many residents might have noticed, the 7+acre property on Monte Sano Blvd. (in between the Baptist Church and Mae Ave.) was recently sold. The new owners of the property are local developers who are interested in creating a new residential street. They have reached out to the Boards of both the Monte Sano Civic Association (MSCA) and Monte Sano Village (MSV) to gauge interest in what sort of development might be most appropriate to, and most supportive of, the community. In order to give all the residents of Monte Sano an opportunity to review the ideas and share their thoughts, MSCA and MSV have scheduled an open house with the developer. Any and all Monte Sano residents are welcome to attend, and Monte Sano Baptist Church has graciously agreed to host the event. The developer will be on hand to talk about a few ideas for new single-family development, to share some proposed plans and images, and to answer any questions. In the event you are unable to attend but have questions about the project, please feel free to contact MSCA or MSV, and we will attempt to get answers to you as quickly as possible.
