2014 Meeting Schedule

Patrick Henry Elementary School Library at 7:00 PM. Check the newsletter for details.

Hi neighbors!

We're looking for volunteers to show their gardens during the annual Arlington Heights Garden Tour. This year's tour will be held on Saturday, June 7. We usually start around 8:30-9:00 AM and go until around 12:00 noon.

We like variety! So whether you're an avid vegetable gardener, have a casual cottage garden, maintain a more formal approach...we love it all. Please let us know via return email if you're interested in participating.

Rebecca and John Mashaw

Dear Neighbors:

Thank you for responding to 2014 Arlington Heights Neighborhood Improvements Survey.

This survey provided Arlington Heights Civic Association (AHCA) information needed to prepare an update to AHCA's Neighborhood Conservation Plan. This plan enables us to speak with one voice to county officials about our concerns and changes we would like to see. Completing a plan update also gives us extra credit in the points system used to prioritize funding for neighborhood improvement projects, which totals about $12 million per year for the entire county. Recent improvements include the construction of new sidewalks, curbs, and gutters in several locations around our neighborhood, as well as new streetlights.

    Greetings neighbors,

    Many thanks to everyone who attended AHCA's 2013 Halloween parade and party!

    More than 130 neighbors joined us to celebrate this spooky season, we collected 285 pounds of food for AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center) and we added 10 more members to our civic association! What a great day!

    Many thanks to our sponsors - Papa John's Pizza and Simplicity Urgent Care - for their generosity! The pizza was delicious and we ate every last piece and the Simplicity donated moon bounces were enjoyed for hours non-stop.

    Thanks to the volunteers from AFAC and AFC (Arlington Free Clinic) for joining us to share information about their wonderful community organizations.

    Last, but certainly not least, thank you to AHCA Executive Committee members Jeanne Haggerty and Jay Moore for their help coordinating the event today. As for AHCA Secretary Megan Haydasz - our wonderful event today simply would not have happened without all of her hard work and organization - thank you Megan!!!

    We hope everyone enjoyed a happy and safe Halloween!

    Dear Neighbors,

    Some of you may have already noticed the good news - the Glebe Road Bridge Project is finally complete! It looks terrific and traffic is running smoothly - or as smoothly as it ever does on a major thoroughfare. :)
