National Night Out 2015 Next Week!

NNOTP_LogoThis year’s National Night Out at Tietze Park will be Tuesday, October 6 from 5:30-8:00pm.

National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationship between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. This year’s event is hosted by three neighborhood associations – Lower Greenville, Lakewood Heights, and Lowest Greenville West and The Friends of Tietze Park Foundation.

On hand will be police officers to talk to about crime concerns. In addition, we will have exhibits from quality-of-life and charitable organizations. We’ll have the face painters, hotdogs, live music, and a bounce house.

This is a great opportunity to have some fun, meet some neighbors, and learn a little something about health and safety. Look for the manila flyer on your doorstep. The event will take the place of our regularly scheduled November LGNA meeting. Be sure to stop by and say hello!

Volunteer Opportunities to Prepare for St. Patrick’s Celebration

On Saturday, March 7, LGNA volunteers will be working with Explorer Scouts to construct 750+ temporary “No Parking” signs. We’ll meet at the Tietze Park pavilion at 9:00 AM until approximately 11:00 AM. Breakfast will be provided by LGNA, Blue Goose Cantina, and US Foods. Bring a hammer if you have one. After construction, the signs will be transported to storage, so trucks will be appreciated.

On Thursday, March 12, volunteers can go to 5843 Vanderbilt between 3:00 PM and sunset to be assigned to sign-posting crews. Crews consist of a driver to carry the signs and 2-3 “installers” to walk along and post the signs. Instructions and some mallets are provided; however, please bring a hammer or mallet if you have one. Depending on the number of volunteers, we’ll continue until all signs are posted. Dinner will be provided by LGNA, Blue Goose Cantina, The Dubliner, State Representative Morgan Meyer, and US. Foods.

For additional information on either event, email or call 214-821-2562.
