2017 NECA Block Party - Saturday, July 29th, 2-10PM

Join NECA and your neighbors for our block party on McAlpin Avenue Island between Hiawatha and Leoti! Flyers have been delivered to your house, or you can download the registration form and send it in. Please RSVP by July 20th if you would like dinner.

ACTIVITIES: Jumping house, bean bags, kids activities, and music.

FOOD: BBQ from City's Edge! Chef Blake Baum will be making the same top-notch barbeque that we enjoyed last year. MENU: Brisket, Pulled Pork, Mac 'n' Cheese, Buns, and Barbeque Sauces. You must order in advance.

NECA DISCOUNT: NECA Members get discounts for everyone in their house. You can pay your dues for Oct 2016 - Sep 2017, to take advantage of the discount.

ART CONTEST: We have chosen nine finalists for a community art contest at Wildwood School, and we will vote for the winners at the party.

VOLUNTEERS: NECA works hard to make these community events happen. To make this event a success, we need volunteers! If you are interested in helping to set up, tear down, or supervise the bounce house, please contact us. Our permit blocks off one block of McAlpin and the entrance to the park, so please move your cars starting at 1PM for setting up.

Celebrate Third Fridays With Us

You may have seen the "Third Friday" signs last year on the McAlpin Island between Hiawatha and Tahoma. There were informal gatherings at the Island on the third Friday of each month last fall. Signs were posted on either end of the island the week before. We met some new neighbors and had a lot of fun. Please join us in continuing a new tradition this year, weather permitting. Please bring a chair, your favorite beverage, and join us on the third Friday of each month, continuing through the summer. We will set up the NECA tent and banner around 7:30 PM and hope to meet more neighbors this year! Please reach out to your friends who live in our neighborhood and join us.

Enjoy our Park and Help Keep Wildwood Safe

While we encourage everyone in our community to enjoy our park, it's important that we do so responsibly. To this end, we are sponsoring two initiatives to help keep the park safe and clean. First, we are encouraging everyone in the community to include Wildwood Park in your evening walks, especially Friday and Saturday nights between 9 and 10:30 PM. Second, if you live on the park where you might witness any inappropriate behavior, we ask that you join our phone tree. You can reach out to either Erick Robertson or Ellen Davidson to be included. This gives us more opportunities to alert the police quickly, and helps us get a faster response time. Please remember - if you see any illegal behavior in the park, the police have advised us to call 9-1-1 and not to confront anyone directly. Together we can help make sure Wildwood Park remains safe!
