EMS Sales Tax Special Election

Progressive Dinner - a Tasty, Moving Experience

by Susan Allen, Director-at-Large

Twenty-two neighbors got to know each other a lot better while enjoying delicious food at four Westheight homes on May 22.
Thanks go to the hosts for their great food and for opening their homes for our associations' second annual Progressive Dinner. We began with appetizers at the home of Mary and Curt Cutting. (One of the offerings was Mount Kenya Safari Club avocado-mango salsa with pita chips.) Then the group traveled to Roy Nicodemus' home for spinach salad and sangria. Patty and Larry Dean hosted the main course, Sicilian stuffed steak with marinara sauce. And dessert, cheesecake with raspberries, was served at Jackie Holdcraft's home.
Mary Cutting also did a great job in preparing the menu and list of hosts. Thanks also go to all the guests, who helped make the event lively and fun.

Park Beautification

We have a newly bricked bridge over the creek in Westheight Park. Thanks to Rick Yarnell, Jeff Fendorf and Susan Maier for mixing fourteen bags of mortar, and laying four hundred bricks in a pattern to match the other bridge, it now looks fresh and beautiful! The supplies were purchased with grant monies we received for the project in past years. If you haven't checked out the park lately, you will be impressed. It is an asset that we as a neighborhood group should be proud of, and as long as we keep maintaining it and working to make it beautiful, we shall be proud for a long time.

So, What are Dues for?

The voluntary annual dues to your neighborhood association are used in many ways, most commonly to beautify and preserve the quality of life in the neighborhood, and to encourage neighborhood events and activities. We also use the strength of our neighborhood association as leverage in securing grants for larger projects. The neighbors listed below are those we thank for having already sent in their dues for 2004.
Membership dues contributions should be made payable to "HWNA", and sent to the HWNA treasurer: Rick Yarnell, 2424 Nebraska Ct., Kansas City, KS 66102-2608. Dues are $5.00 per adult in a househould. Remember, any contributions to the Historic Westheight Neighborhood Association, a 501(c)3 corporation, are tax-deductible.
