HHSNA Meeting May 12, 2022 6:30PM Northridge Elementary

Hello Neighbors,

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!

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.

The Good Neighbor Award Luncheon

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!

It was a great honor and we should all be proud!

Garage Sale Update

We had a very SUCCESSFUL 2 days at our Garage Sale!

Thank you ALL for your support! We COULD NOT have done this without ALL the Volunteers, ALL of the Donations and Neighborhood Support! I must say, I am glad all the items are now out of my house! I could only imagine what some neighbors were thinking seeing truck loads of items coming to my house. I kept watching for TV cameras to come and start filming a hoarding intervention!

Drum Roll please!!

Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Association made $1,255.00 on Friday and $521.85 on Saturday for a Grand Total of $1,776.85 and in the process, met and Welcomed several New Neighbors to the neighborhood!

I hope all the volunteers take it easy today and rest up. I know I am. I recovering from the sun burn and sore feet from walking. I did not expect to walk 10 miles a day and never leave the front yard!

Watch for GREAT things to keep happening in Harvest Hills South neighborhood!

If you have not joined the Association yet, please consider. Membership goes to pay for regular expenses and with the help of these fund raisers make it possible for “Dream Big” projects to happen! Membership is still only $30.00 a year!

Garage Sale Update

It was a great day yesterday, at the garage sale. We were able to make $1255.00 for the neighborhood from all the donations we were able to sell! We hope to have another great day today!!!! All of these proceeds go towards entrances.

Harvest Hills South also had a great Johnnie’s Dine Out day! I don’t know all the final numbers, but when we went at 7pm we had 2 columns of sales! This is FREE money to the neighborhood just for going out to eat! I am looking at other restaurants that do the same program to give us a variety. We all have to eat!

I would like to send a special “Thank You” to the neighborhood for all of your support! We have some really great neighbors that got up early to help set up and work the garage sale all day and others that sent in donations. All of your support is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!!!
