See you there!
Our Help Your Neighbor Day, Saturday, April 30, was a huge success.
Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer. All three of our neighbors in need felt loved and appreciated, which was the win. These folks don’t just need their houses cleaned up, they need friendships. It was fun to see the homeowners interacting with our teams for most of the time.
Going forward, let’s continue to reach out to the neighbors we served yesterday. Also, I’d like to have a meeting later this summer to talk about expanding HYND, so we can reach more people.
A special thanks to our two sponsors: Ironwood Landscape and Energy Attic.
I’m thankful for friends like Tim Kahle and Ryan Amerson who believe in serving their neighbor through their businesses.
Below are some pics from the event. Thanks again everyone!!

Help Neighbor Day started three years ago in Richardson Heights. The purpose of this project is to work together as neighbors to help other neighbors who need assistance with small projects around their homes. This is an opportunity for the community to reach out to those neighbors who might not be able to complete a project on their own. The person might be older. The person might have had recent surgery or maybe the job requires more than one person. The neighborhood can help!
At our next member meeting we have some Q&A time with members of the city council, and a special guest, Chrissy Cortez-Mathis of Texas Blackland Gardening. We will also review one of our neighborhood landscape projects which is nearing the implementation stage.
Where: Richardson Heights Elementary
101 N Floyd Rd.
When: Wednesday, April 27, 7-8:30 p.m.
This is our annual membership drive meeting. Membership in the Richardson Heights Neighborhood Association runs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 Membership is only $15 for a family. You can pay at the meeting by check or cash. You can also pay online at our website: richardsonheights.org
Your membership finances our annual events, these meetings and special projects like the redesigning the landscaping for our neighborhood entryways.
If you have young children we invite you to bring them along. We are setting up an additional space with adult supervision in the school’s gym to play videos for the kids while we have the meeting.
Chrissy has been presenting gardening talks in the Dallas area since 2008. She focuses on WaterWise Gardening, creating landscapes that are ecologically sustainable & do not require additional water once established. More about Chrissy at texasblacklandgardening.com.
See you at the meeting.
