Suburban Acres Civic League November 2019 Meeting Cancelled

The Suburban Acres Civic League will not meet on November 11th, due to the Veterans Day holiday.  Let’s send out a big salute to all our veterans and their families who so selflessly serve our county. Thank you!

Please mark your calendars for the next civic league meeting on December 9th, 6:00 pm, at Suburban Park Elementary.  It’s the annual pot-luck Holiday Party, with lots of food, fun, and musical entertainment.  It’s a great way to meet neighbors, talk with the civic league board and elected officials, and support our community.
