The PHNA Annual Picnic, Sunday April 6, was a great success for our community. We proved that we are one of the best neighborhoods to live in. We set our record attendance with approximately 150 people including the kids. Bravo
Thank you Neighbor! You came, brought food and drinks to share, and provided wonderful conversation and an atmosphere of merriment. We look forward to next year with an even greater number of neighbors and ideas. Earlier and better planning next year on an even larger scale is possible when incorporating your comments and suggestions.
Thank you to our business sponsors because without them we would not have been able to provide tasty samples, music, jumping castle and extra tables with chairs. Old Pueblo Grill provided us with delicious Hatch Macaroni and Cheese, chips and salsa. Babylon Market shared their great falafels and tasty desserts. La Quinta Inn & Suites Reid Park, Alvernon Optical, and BDD House of Window Coverings donated money for tables, chairs and a jumping castle for our kids. What kind of party would it have been without music? Metro Gnome Music & Cycle provided the sound system. We met great principals from Faith Lutheran School and Christ Church United Methodist Preschool & Parent’s Day Out. And a special thanks to all the neighborhood vendors who participated: Mrs. Sew n’ Soap, ‘mar designs’, Res-Com Plumbing, Ahimsa Landscaping, and Kevin’s Dog’s Accessories. We would love to encourage you to visit all mentioned businesses and support them as they did us. They are playing a big part in our future plans and we need them as they need us.
The displayed 3D models of our future neighborhood 5 year plan were a hit. They showed a neighborhood where everyone feels welcome, safe and proud to be a member of our community. For those who didn’t have the opportunity to come, the plan will be posted on our website. We collected signatures supporting the improvements and will continue to do so. When you see one of our board members walking the neighborhood, please open your door to hear about our exciting ideas. We need your support, encouragement and comments.
We invite you to participate in all/any upcoming events: our website, our upcoming quarterly newsletter or just to say “Hi and how are you?” to your neighbors while walking or playing in our Peter Howell Neighborhood. There is power when we show unity as a community.
