Welcome Comittee
A group of residents get out to welcome new residents to the neighborhood with a welcome package several times a year.  The package typically includes information for local businesses, city contact information, recent newsletter or meeting notes, and a special gift.  If you'd like to participate with the welcome committee, please send us an email (see Contact Us page).

Generally in April, a nationwide day of picking up trash and litter.  Help give the neighborhood (and city) a spring cleaning by picking up along the roads. Gloves and trash bags distributed in the morning at the school, when supplies are available.

Potluck Dinner
The May meeting is dedicated to a social time to get together and enjoy good food. Invite your neighbors to bring their families and yours with a side dish to share.  Meat provided by neighborhood association. Often attended by the mayor, city councilmen, fire department and police department when available.
