Made up of residents of all ages, races, and ethnicities CSNA supports activities for children and families, organizes social gatherings, supports local businesses and addresses community concerns.


For over a decade we have we have planned our community building events at a retreat in January. The list of events linked here represents the 2019 plan.

What We Believe...

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members ~ Coretta Scott King

_ . _

One of the marvelous things about community is that it enable us to welcome and help people in a way that we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strengths and share the work and responsibility we can welcome many people ~ Jean Vanier 

_ . _

Every time we decrease children's opportunity for free play by increasing time at school or some other adult-directed activities, we reduce further their opportunities to control their own lives, to learn that they ar not simply victims of circumstance and powerful others ~ Peter Gray
