President’s Message [December 2023]

Ardmore is Blooming

   If you think digging holes in hard clay is tough, try doing it in January.  But our neighborhood association did just that!  And then we started planning other ways to connect folks (with no digging required).

   Here are high points of 2023, and some lovely photos if you missed something!

     - A garden tour
     - Making valentines for senior citizens
     - Soccer fun for young kids
     - Music at the Miller Park amphitheater
     - Tenants’ rights program
     - July 4th potluck and music
     - Dogmore
     - A craft show
     - Plant swap events
     - Minglemore: A get-together for ANA members only 
     - A bike helmet giveaway for kids
     - Historic architecture walking tours
     - Weekly tennis doubles

   Most of these events were free.  This is largely due to the generosity of our business sponsors.  Please thank them and consider using their services.  And if your household hasn’t yet joined, please do!  

   Have you been thinking - “Wow!  What a great neighborhood association!  How could I pitch in?”  Yes, we do accept donations, large and small.

   What else did your neighborhood association do in 2023?  We started a monthly newsletter and we also reached out for new members by putting ANA door hangers on hundreds of homes.  We increased our Facebook presence and improved our website.  Have you seen our resources for tenants and senior citizens, for example?

   Best of all, so many ANA members volunteered, met their neighbors, and helped build a stronger Ardmore.  Our board members in particular have put in many hours organizing these events.  Please thank them!  See you in 2024!

Your Neighbor, 
   Kate Mewhinney, ANA President
