Day 2 – Dream Big Garage Sale

If you still have things you would like to donate, please bring them over or contact us & we can make arrangements to come pick them up.

We would love volunteers to help today!

Thank you to all the neighbors that provided donations! We have a great start to our ‘Dream Big’ fund! We even had people who didn’t find anything they needed, but still provided a donation to our worthwhile cause 🙂

Donate items to the HHSNA Garage Sale!

Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Garage Sale this Friday & Saturday May 17-18.

If you do not have enough for your own garage sale & would like to donate a few items, we are having a garage sale that will benefit the HHSNA “Dream Big” project. If you have anything you would like to donate, please let us know & we will work out a schedule to pick up or for you to bring by.

We are looking for volunteers to help run the ‘Dream Big’ garage sale being held at 8204 NW 79th St. If you are available any time Friday or Saturday, please let us know. Jaci could use help pricing & setting up since we know the hard-core garage saler’s will come early! Please email us if you are able to help!

Thank you so much to all of the neighbors that have donated to support this cause! We really appreciate your support.

Neighborhood Garage Sale May 17-18

The neighborhood garage sale is this coming Friday & Saturday May 17-18th. If you want to have one at your home please remember you will need a permit. The permit cost is $7 and you can apply for it online. A single permit is good for 3 consecutive days. The sale must be held between 8am-6pm at the address listed on the permit.

HHSNA will be advertising on Facebook, Nextdoor, our blog, email, & Craigslist.

If you plan on having a garage sale at your home please send us your address & we will compile & post a listing.

The Meadows, directly across from us on Wilshire, will also be having their neighborhood garage sale that weekend so we should have a good turnout having some of their customers as well. All entrances will have big banners.

911 Communication Center

Just a short recap, Jamie O’Leary , from the 911 Communication Center personally invited Harvest Hills South to tour her facility when she spoke at our general meeting, in January. She wanted to show you how to use 911 and how 911 operates. It is paid by your tax dollars.


The 911 Communication Center provides support to not only the Police Department, but also the Fire Department and ESMA. 

If you missed the presentation and /or missed the tour, one can still be set up for you. Just let us know, we will provide the contact information to you. I think you will find it very informative. If you have children, teenagers or elderly, they all should go and listen to the presentation on how to address emergency situations; like when someone with a disability might be in the house.. 

911 no longer answers the phone “911, What is your emergency?”. Due to the majority of the call volume today is reported from cell phones, they now answer the phone “911, Where is your Emergency?”. It is a myth that they know exactly where you are unless you are calling from a Land Line phone. Cell phones can only ping off of cell towers and give a close idea of where you are located, but that is not good enough if you are in a real emergency. We need to make sure your children how and where to find the address to let dispatcher know. It was recommended that a piece of mail showing your address be posted on your refrigerator and children be instructed what it is and why it is there. 

Just something to think about…..
