Welcome 2.0

Hello, neighbors! Since we haven’t been able to have our annual neighborhood events in the last year due to the pandemic, and we have new neighbors who haven’t joined us in those gatherings before, it seems like a good time for a little recap. Some of these events may be reshaped after we move out of the pandemic, but here’s a quick rundown of how they have been structured for several years, pre-COVID:

NWGNA Holiday Party - A Sunday evening in early December, hosted by lovely neighbors. Some noshes and drinks provided by NWGNA, others contributed by neighbors.

Holiday Yard Trees - A group order of the traditional front yard trees, led by Pam Shukait

Holiday Decoration Contest - A front-yard decorating contest with prizes from local businesses.

Neighborhood holiday decorating - After Thanksgiving, a volunteer effort to put up garland and wreaths in the neighborhood.

Party In The Park - NWGNA provides hot dogs and ice cream, neighbors bring side dishes, hosted in Hummingbird Park in mid August.

There are other events that occur every few years, like dumpster days, so watch this blog for any announcement of other events.

And, while we're at it, here are ways to remain connected to your neighborhood. We maintain each of these methods so that you can choose the one that suits you best. The content is copied over onto all of these forums with different capabilities to interact back and forth.
