OKC and Harvest Hills South will be celebrating Halloween on October 31, 2021. Please leave your outside lights on if you plan to give out candy. Here is some Halloween Safety for the little ones.
1). If you have small children, make sure their masks do not infringe on their vision, so they do not stumble or fall. 2). If you are out after dark, please bring a flashlight with you, so cars can see you if you are in the street, since Harvest Hills South does not have sidewalks. 3). Please be respectful to the neighborhood and do not leave candy wrappers or trash along your way.4). Neighbors if you do not want to participate, please turn off your porch lights, so the children will know which houses are participating. 5). Have fun and don’t get too scared…….BOO!
Invite a neighbor to come with you and support Harvest Hills South this Friday at Johnnies!

They are assisting us with our fund raising for the entrances by providing us 20% of the sales generated by supporters of Harvest Hills South during the whole day.

Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler is a piece of Oklahoma history, its long-standing roots dating back to 1971 when Johnnie Haynes opened the first location at Military Rd and Britton Rd in Oklahoma City. Today, Johnnie’s is proud to be a part of many communities in the greater Oklahoma City area serving Oklahoma families quality, fresh-made, charcoal broiled burgers.
The first location was a drive-in with 12 car-hop stalls, 12 inside booths and inside seating capacity of 48. The restaurant moved and expanded in 1977 to the Britton Road location.
They are famous for Johnnie’s Hickory Sauce, a secret family recipe. #9 Theta Cheeseburger, #8 Old Fashioned Cheeseburger & #4 Johnnie’s Caesar Burger are fan favorites. Frankfurters, Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken Sandwiches and Platters are hearty and filling. Onion rings are sliced fresh each morning and hand battered to perfection. Deli Sandwiches, salads and soups are of the lighter variety and always a great choice. Chocolate, Banana and Coconut Cream Pies are signature recipes and the perfect ending to a great meal.

Countdown to Friday, Neighbors Dine Out! Johnnies is sponsoring our Neighborhood Fundraiser. They provide us 20% of all sales generated in support of Harvest Hills South. You must let the order taker know you are there to support us or we do not get credit. Our 20% must be equal or more than $50.00 in order for us to receive a check. Also if we fall below the $50.00 for two (2) months we are out of the program. This is an easy fundraiser. We made $71 in August! We have had one strike against us for the last month. We only had $48.00, so we NEED EVERYONE TO DINE OUT! Let’s try to make $100.00!Tell all your friends!
The money will be used on our entrances. We still need to replace the plants. We are working on quotes to get landscaping bricks. The water and electricity we will work with Neighborhood Alliance to be able to provide tax deduction letters for donations, once we get all the final bids in and review. We can then share that information with you.
A neighbor shared this video with us. It has some very interesting information on how your home can become a target for a thief. It is from a professional burglar who is helping law enforcement to help neighborhoods. He explains what are deterrents and what makes a good target. Listen all the way through. Neighborhood Watch programs were his biggest deterrent!
He has some really good tips if you are alone on how to answer the door. Take your cell phone to the door than state hold on someone is at my door. If the person coming to your door is up to no good the phone is a deterrent because they think you are connected to someone who can call 911 immediately if they do anything.
Keep looking out for your neighbors. If you do see things that just doesn’t look right question it! I did recently and it is better to be safe than sorry. I saw someone with car door open removing large boxes from a neighbors house. I called that neighbor to check and see if they were aware. I had never seen the car or that person in the neighborhood before. Result that person was there to pick up the packages but the neighbor thanked me for noticing.
Go out and get to know your neighbors! Recognize the cars and people that belong on your street and who doesn’t. Call 911 and report suspicious activity. You never know your report might help solve a crime or prevent one from happening.
