Do you live in a Sears & Roebuck kit home?
April 9, 2010 – 3:51 am | 7 Comments

“My family grew up on the Easthill and I have always loved the structure of homes I rode by on my bike and went trick or treating to on Halloween. But it wasn’t until I was helping my ‘then future husband” purchase a home that I noticed how similar many of the Easthill homes look. In fact, you could say some looked exactly the same? So I went sleuthing…”

Annual Neighborhood Picnic » August 17
July 28, 2014 – 8:00 am | No Comment

OK, people, this is coming up fast, so grab your giant (red) permanent markers and circle the date on your calendars about six hundred times! The big neighborhood picnic is on Sunday, August 17. Here are the details:

When: Sunday, August 17, 11am–3:00pm (serving noon–2pm)
Where: Boyd Park on Main Street (map)
Free food: Brats, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips, cookies, pickles, and lemonade.
Bring: Lawn chairs, lawn games, friends and family

In years past, neighbors have been welcome to bring food to share, but that’s not the case this year. The neighborhood association has worked hard to provide as much food as possible entirely on the association’s budget. And this year …

Mega Foods East has graciously donated much of this year’s food and sundry other items to help us out. So a big “thank you” to the neighborhood grocery store!

Feel free to bring your own beverages, but all the food will be provided! Instead, it’d be great if you could bring any lawn games you’re willing to share with your neighbors for the afternoon.

This is a great chance to hang out with your friends and family for the afternoon, rekindle old friendships, and meet new people. And eat. Volunteers will be grilling and serving the food as long as it lasts.
