Festival Time This Saturday 9-13

The final plan for the September 13th, 2014 Shotgun Music Festival had been completed. The festival shirts will be produced by Meme Tech and sold at the festival. They are navy blue in color and look great. The $2,600 grant application to the city for the event has been forwarded. Our thanks to Jim King and David Tandy! Also, the billboard ad is up. This billboard can be found on the west end of the Bradford Mills building as you bike, run, walk or motor up E. Oak Street from Swan Street intersection.

The schedule is set and live music will be the order of the day-

In Lighting at 2, Elvis is back this year and is set to perform at 3, IAMIS at 4, and square dancing at 5.

PLEASE JOIN!

Our goal is to make it easy for anyone who holds value in our efforts to join. Gaining financial support is helpful of course in off setting administrative cost. But what we really hope for is inducing residents to become active. So the annual membership fee is by donation amount of your choice including the giving of your time. To encourage membership the recommended dollar amount is kept very low at $5 per year.

Here is how easy joining is-

Email your name, address to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Steve will enter your name and email address to the GPNA membership roster. You can provide your chosen donation by mailing it to 1094 E Kentucky Street (40204) and make the check out to GPNA.

You can also join at one of our sponsored functions including our quarterly pot luck public meetings. Please note that we will accept cash for membership when sign up is at an event, but that is the ONLY TIME. You can also choose to not mail and simply drop the check through the slot that is in the middle of our front door. Again, no cash if dropping off.  And most important please make sure the check is in a sealed envelope marked "Membership".

Support Our Bingo!

Our Monday Bingo is in its 28th year of continual operation. Doors open at 9 AM and games start at 10:15 AM. The last game is normally played out by 12:15 PM. Our Kentucky gaming license number is 00058 and posted. This 27 year running weekly event offers residents a unique and fun experience. The nature of bingo encourages all new and regulars attending to get to know each other. Bingo is held at the GPNA center, 1094 E. Kentucky Street.

Keeping Compliant-

GPNA keeps on file its approval letter from the IRS. This letter stipulates that GPNA is a 501 (C4) non-profit organization. To stay in good standing we file an IRS-990 each calendar year. We also file with Kentucky to maintain legal recognition with the Commonwealth. The overall reporting to the state requires our forwarding an Annual Report and we must provide quarterly to the Department of Charitable Gaming detailed gaming activity reports.  We are required to complete annually a gaming license application.  GPNA is currently in full compliance and in good standing with the federal, state and city governments and all the reports listed have been filed on time.

If Interested-

These updates are shared for two reasons. Please know we want you to think out how what you are good can help move our neighborhood forward to become even better.  We would love to tap into your talents and gain your commitment. If interested the easiest and best way to offer your help is to contact our volunteer administrator, Steve Magre.
