Please see attached the Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) Registration Information for the May 24-27th Conference. FPNA/GNA/Bayliss West and Lincoln/Fairview Neighborhood Associations are sponsoring two of the neighborhood tours during the upcoming NUSA Conference. Conference attendees from around the country will board busses and enjoy sightseeing around our respective neighborhoods, while our own tour volunteers will point out places of interest along the way. Some homeowners will host short inside tours of their homes as well. We hope to see you all there.
Diane and Brett Emsick (405 Park Avenue) had a couple of trees taken down and there is firewood FREE for the taking? They are ash trees. It is cut into 2′ to 4′ lengths.
Brett can be reached at 712-310-2802 to arrange pick-up time.
The FPNA 2014 Garage Sale started with good traffic. We had 9 locations in all with 15 participating households. The rain didn’t hold off for as long as we would have hoped but everyone said they had good sales up until 10:30 a.m. when the downpour really started. The weather is the one thing we can’t control unfortunately. The deluge lasted until just after 1:00 p.m. and those who willingly stuck it out reported that patrons returned and the afternoon was quite nice indeed with sales picking up toward the end. We all know there are those die hard Garage Sale-ers who won’t let a bargain pass them up. The Bake Sale at 407 Glen headed up by Michelle Mutchler-Burns also did a brisk business until the storm hit. Thanks to everyone who donated baked goods, beverages, ice, food boxes and coolers to the event. I hear the Krispy-Crème donuts were snatched up fast as folks were looking for that sugar rush to carry them to the various locations. All participants welcomed the chance to earn a little petty cash and off load some of those larger items that have been piling up in the basement, garage, hall-closet etc. CLICK HERE to view the photos of this event
The Fairmount Park Neighborhood Association (FPNA) has received an excellence in newsletter achievement from the Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) national organization. We entered two of our 2013 issues into the competition in May of 2014. The acknowledgment was awarded at the annual conference in Eugene, Oregon which took place on May 21-24. This goes along with the FPNA being a finalist in the Neighborhood of the Year competition (NOTY) in which we submitted our identification banner/flower basket/pole project in the beautification and improvement category.
