A new voice in/for the Delano District

Karen of Delano Bungalow fame has started a new website intended to be a source of information for all things Delano District: Delano Wichita Neighborhood News. It's only a couple of days old, but she has posted links to neighborhood organizations and has a blog aggregator for neighborhood blogs.

Over at Delano Bungalow, Karen explains the reason for this new site:
The "cause" that's prompted me to get around to setting the site up is one that came up on various neighborhood blogs: the lack of a grocery store in Delano. I'm not quite sure I'm ready to make a call to action, but I'd like to gather the discussion and see if it goes somewhere.
Radicalized much, Karen?

All kidding aside, I'm pleased to see this new site. I look forward to its attracting some eyeballs and becoming a virtual town-square for folks here. And things may indeed start soon: Karen has posted that the next Delano Neighborhood Association meeting is at 7pm next Tuesday, January 20, at West Side Christian Church. I'll try to be there as well; I hope others will, too.

My activism is mostly limited to blogging. I'm a writer, not a speaker. Hence my call for everybody *else* in Delano to come to the DNA: I don't wanna be the only newbie there.
