RSVP for Neighborhood Watch meeting

Thanks to all who took part in last Sunday's Party in the Park. It was a great success. It was really wonderful seeing neighbors interacting together and meeting new people. The band, the hot dogs and ice cream were pretty good, too!

On Tuesday, August  23 at 6:30, we will be hosting a group Neighborhood Watch Meeting. Neighborhood Watch wants to find households to host their nearby neighbors for street-by-street meetings. This is meant for neighbors to get to know each other so we can help watch out for each other.

Please RSVP by texting or calling Bill at 408-893-6684. The city requires at least ten households for this meeting, so we need a good turnout.

Neighborhood Watch Group Meeting 8/23/16 at 6:30
Word Of Faith Church 873 Delmas Ave (at Fuller Ave)

This is who volunteers in North Willow Glen, Part 7

Another in our occasional series about who volunteers in North Willow Glen.

Sheila Hunter

Year you moved into the neighborhood: 2010
What drew you to North Willow Glen: I had a friend who used to live in the neighborhood and I liked the walkability and neighborliness of North Willow Glen
What you love about our neighborhood: Fuller Park and Hummingbird Park provide multiple spots for meeting neighbors and letting pets and kids roam

What you do to help out in North Willow Glen and why it’s important to you: I have been the treasurer for the North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association. As a member of the board, I learned about how various neighbors advocate for our neighborhood, lead special clean-up efforts, improve our communication, and host special events. I am so grateful for my neighbors' good work; I've been happy to help by writing checks and filling out forms. It is a small way to give back to help build up this special neighborhood.
