The McCorkle Road Neighborhood Development Association (MRNDA), Inc. of Memphis is on a roll! Please be sure to join this comprehensive ZIP Code 38116 community group of concerned citizens to stay abreast of what impacts your most prided possession - your property.
Every paid member of the MRNDA will be receiving a weekly calendar for the year of 2020. These calendars will be an important part of our efforts to document our concerns and prepare ourselves for the continued fight against Waste Connections, LLC of TN and other unwanted injustices that attempt to approach our community and destroy our lives.
Please look forward to receiving your weekly pocket calendar shortly after the New Year. Your calendar will be the place for your notes concerning the dates, times, and smells concerning all odors coming from Waste Connections, LLC of TN. It will be prepopulated with the call-in information you will need for telephone meetings, and contain the location information for pre-scheduled in-person meetings approved to be held at the Whitehaven Branch Library, 4120 Mill Branch at Raines Road. Your new MRNDA weekly calendar planner will be the perfect place to jot down information about future meetings that concern our neighborhood and the surrounding area.
Don't forget you can pay your tax-deductible dues, in the amount of $25/household per year online (LOOK for the credit card icons below or on the home page, just scroll to the bottom and look for the secure PayPal link), by cash (call us at 901.300.0250), or by check (mail to MRNDA, PO Box 9695, Memphis, TN 38190-0695).
NOTE: Beginning in 2020, I will work with anyone who wants to make smaller ($5) payments and become a charter member!
Thank you for your continued support as we demand justice for our properties and our right to parity here in ZIP Code 38116.

Fall has arrived and this fall is a special one for Memphians who believe in taking a bite out of crime by celebrating National Night Out with family, friends, neighbors, and the local police at Raines Station in Whitehaven. Prior to 2019, National Night Out was always celebrated on the first Tuesday in AUGUST in Memphis. The McCorkle Road Neighborhood Development Association (MRNDA), Inc. of Memphis petitioned and our request was finally heard! For the first year ever, Memphis will be celebrating National Night Out on the first Tuesday in OCTOBER like Texas! What this revelation means for the MRNDA is that we have resumed supporting this “annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships to help make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.”
This year will feature lots of fellowshipping, fun, food and the ultimate game CURBSIDE GAMERZ game truck experience for gamers of all ages to enjoy all the latest digital games on a 32’ enclosed trailer with its own power supply, heat and air, featuring seating for 24 single or group players; 4 (interior) 55” widescreen, high-definition flat-screen TVs and 2 (exterior) 55” high-definition flat-screen TVs for dancing and action sports games; custom stadium seating with built-in vibration motors synched to the on-screen action of all the newest games from Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Wii, and Wii U. Don’t not come because if you do, you will definitely miss out on the fun!
As in the past, our event will be held on the northwest corner of McCorkle at Winchester Road. We will be accepting memberships during the event and paid members will receive a ticket that will allow them and their family members to enjoy tasty entrees from local area restaurants including the CHINA INN, the only restaurant that we can count on for free entrees; and D’BO’S WINGS & THINGS, who always provides a deep discount on our order. Of course we have additional sponsors including EPE/GRACELAND, KROGER, VALICOR, and our very own NEWSCENE monthly newmagazine available online only at iLoveShelbyCounty.com!
