Help your neighbor day – April 5

By Scott Rhoades, RHNA Board Civic Chair

A few months ago, a handful of Richardson Heights neighbors were meeting together and started talking about how to help our neighborhood.

Help Your Neighbor Day:

Date: April 5
Time: Meet at 12:30
Place: Meet at Durham Park

Let’s get out there and help our neighbors!

Volunteer Coordinator
Scott Rhoades: scottrhoades@mac.com

Do you know about a project or are you in need?
Contact Tim Kahle: timkahle@yahoo.com.

 

From those conversations, the Richardson Heights “Help Your Neighbor Day” was started!

The sole vision of this project is to get together with neighbors like you in order to help other neighbors that might need assistance with small projects. The first ever Richardson Heights “Help Your Neighbor Day” is just around the corner. On April 5 we are setting out into the neighborhood to rake leaves, clean up trash, repair fences, etc.

The volunteer teams will meet together at Durham Park around noon, set out for our projects, and then everyone will finish out the day back at the park for a barbecue. 

Our two biggest needs are volunteers to help serve and also a list of neighborhood projects.  We especially want to focus on houses of the elderly, and families who might be in need. Our hope is to have volunteer teams from each block helping with projects on their street.

Don’t be shy. If you want to help, know of a project that needs doing, or you need help, then contact us. Just like when neighbor helped neighbor during the December ice storm, we want to capture that spirit for those in need. This is a great way to get out and serve our neighborhood!

Welcome to our new home page!

Welcome to Richardsonheights.org.

We just launched a new look and feel to our neighborhood home page.We hope you like it. Take some time to explore. We don’t have a lot of content yet, but that will change over the coming weeks.

This site is going to continue to provide you with basic community information – contacts, quick links to resources. But because we have moved to a content management system, you are going to get more detailed news about our community that you’re not going to get from our Facebook group or other news sources.
