For those of you unable to attend Thursday night, here are the new Board Members that have agreed to take on their roles for a 2 yr term!
Ron Kister – 1st Vice President
Karen Litteral – Secretary
Sarah Weaver – Newsletter and Social Media
Welcome Committee – Position still open if anyone is interested. We are working to better define this role. If you have any ideas, please share them with us.
If you are interested in volunteering, we are looking for a chairperson for a new initiative called “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”. In addition, we always have block captain/alternate positions available as well as crime patrol. Email us at email@example.com if interested.
We are looking into other fund raising activities for our Dream Big projects. I hope you have liked what we have done so far. We just finished getting the garden areas framed out at the last two entrances. There is more to come!
Other topics discussed were maybe getting each block to sponsor an event to get people out and together again. Maybe play lawn darts, bingo, board games or just sit and have lemonade, ice cream or snowcones and actually talk to neighbors just as some ideas! The blocks would sponsor the events one at a time, so all can participate.
We still need your support through your membership or donations. It is STILL only $30.00 annually. It is getting time for us to start doing more mowing and we will need your support. Our goal is to have 152 households. We only have 80 paid members which is just over 50% of our goal. We need your support for us to continue to do great things. Please consider supporting your neighborhood today!
Please come join us for a Tailgate Meeting in the parking lot of Northridge Elementary School on May 12th at 6:30pm. Bring your lawn chairs and we will have popcorn! We will be voting for board member positions and then the floor is open to topics on what else we can do for the neighborhood. I hope you have been noticing the changes at the entrances!
Please consider volunteering for one of the open positions. I have attached a presentation to this email with the duties of each position. You can nominate yourself or nominate someone else. Please email me at Harvesthillssouth@gmail.com. We will be taking nominations that evening as well.
I hope to see you there! Also if you have not paid your 2022 dues yet, please consider sending. It is time to start the mowing again and that is one of our bigger expenses to keep the entrance looking nice. Due are still only $30.00 a year. Currently we only have 77 paid members.
I wanted to share some exciting news! Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Association is being noticed across the city! We were nominated and won “The Good Neighbor of the Year” Award sponsored by Neighborhood Alliance over all neighborhoods in Ward 1 for Oklahoma City!
Nominations were evaluated for each Ward and a committee awarded a winner per Ward honoring them for their support in the community and the differences they are making. It was quite a surprise to receive the notification and be invited to the banquet winning for Ward 1!
Due to COVID they were not able to have this banquet for the past two years. This year it was able to be held at the Quail Creek Country Club. There were over 200 people in attendance including Mayor Holt, City Officials, Council Members from all eight wards and Law Enforcement.
Thank you for all your support in making this possible and being a great neighborhood!
Blustery days create great energy to power kites, paper airplanes, bottle rockets, pinwheels, wind chimes, sailboats and more. Join us to celebrate the marvels of wind and motion, compliments of Mother Nature!
Bring your own kites or purchase one at the event (limited supplies available) to join in the fun!
This event is free and open to the public.
The first 250 people will receive a complimentary kite.
