Garage Sale Big Success!

Thanks to Cheryl Gove for heading up a terrific garage sale this year! Many good deals were made with over thirty houses participating. Rumor has it that a lot of purchases moved from one house in Westheight to another - just rotating stock among neighbors.

The weather cooperated for the duration of the sale with clear skies that showed off the beauty of our neighborhood to all who walked and drove through, while shopping. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make the garage sale a successful event for our neighborhood.

Annual Picnic & Ribbon Cutting

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 18, 2004. At 2:00 p.m. we will start our annual picnic by having a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially announce the completion of our traffic calming project. Invited guests and participants will include our elected officials, the City departments that worked with us, the consultants, the contractors, and most importantly all our neighbors that worked many years on this project to see it to its completion, as well as those on Washington Boulevard that accepted the responsibility of paying for it. We appreciate everyone's involvement and the result is something that we all should be very proud of. Plan on celebrating with your neighbors and invited guests at a special ceremony, followed by our annual picnic with activities for young and old. Look for the August newsletter for more information.



LEWIS & CLARK AND KAW POINT PARK

The Lewis & Clark Expedition celebration is underway at the new Kaw Point Park. If you visit the park, don't forget to look for the brick that HWNA bought as a neighborhood group to help support this new park. It says, "Historic Westheight Neighborhood Association".
