Last Chance for 2022 Membership Dues

Just a reminder as 2022 comes to a close, we depend on your support for our ongoing improvements to the neighborhood. Did you remember to pay your dues in 2022?? If not please reach out to us as your contribution each year allows us to accomplish many things!

Dues cover our neighborhood expenses from January – December each year.

When are my neighborhood dues to be paid? We would love it if all dues were paid at the start of the calendar year but we understand that life gets busy sometimes. Please consider paying as early in the year as your budget will allow so that we can make great plans for the upcoming years improvements.

What do my dues pay for? Mowing and Landscaping at our Entrances, Website, Post Office Box Rental, Electric Bills for Lighting at Entrances and Events like Neighbors Night Out.

What is the neighborhood association currently working on? Electrical boxes are now installed at Harvest Hills Rd entrance and N McKee Blvd entrance. We are waiting for OG & E and we should have lights before the end of the year! This is all possible with the neighborhood’s support. Please help support the neighborhood!

Inside the Mind of a Thief

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.
