Basic Monthly Rule: On First Wednesdays that are non-holidays. No meeting in JULY or AUGUST.
PRE-COVID: The Collins View Neighborhood Association meets (virtually) at 7:00 PM on the first Wednesday of most every month — we take July and August off. The Neighborhood Association supports the many individual Neighborhood Night Out block parties. Meeting Agendas usually appear on or before the Wednesday before the meeting (1 week ahead).
Pre-COVID, we met in Riverdale High School (where Boones Ferry and Terwilliger overlap), in one of the classrooms, or in the Maverick Room, down the hall going left out of the foyer.

To summarize, it was a well-planned evening. They started at 6PM and they were done by 7PM. The weather was nice, the kids well behaved, and the parents felt safe. It was also genuinely nice for the neighbors not to have to jump up and down answering the door. We had about 20 Trick or Treaters – 10 more than usual. — Nancy Holmes
