We were able to say thank you to 20 CMPD Officers with a note and gift card.
Wow! What a fun evening we had last night. It was hopping so I did not get more photos, but we had at least 41 people here (maybe more).
Thank you to our neighbors, Carol Sawyer (CMS Rep), Tom Hanchett (Local Charlotte Historian & Carol’s husband), Christopher Lawing (author of the “Charlotte: Signs of the Times” book), Kim Barnes (City Neighborhood Services) & CMPD Officers for coming.
We also celebrated Donna Fisher’s birthday and Samantha and Nemo who are moving away. We always have fun at Amity Gardens Neighborhood events!
Can’t wait for National Night Out on 8/7! More details to come!!
A BIG thanks to some of our neighbors for helping spruce up two areas where our new signs were installed. First to Ronnie Griffin for cleaning up the weeds at Sharon Amity Road and Buena Vista Avenue (NCDOT has been slack in that area).
Next thank you to Marty Payne, Donna Fisher & Donna Thomas for building a nice border around the Buena Vista Avenue sign and for trimming back the tree limbs at the Pierson Drive and Unaka Avenue sign.
AND, to Walmart for a gift card to purchase the items for the Buena Vista Avenue sign area. They are a great supporter of our neighborhood.
From time to time we have opportunities like this and would love to have other neighbors to help. 😊
In case you are wondering how Amity Gardens get their BEAUTIFUL new entrance signs, here is your answer.
The neighborhood board applied for a matching grant through the City of Charlotte’s Housing and Neighborhood Services Matching Grant Program.
You can read more about the program on the link below.
Exciting day in Amity Gardens! After 61 years our wonderful neighborhood finally has three beautiful entrance signs. Thanks to the hard work of the Amity Gardens Neighborhood Board, Tracey Coon of Noonday Designs for the logo design, and Tammie Pender of Sophisticated Steel Fabrication for the awesome job making the signs.
Signs are at Monroe Road & Lanier, Sharon Amity & Buena Vista and Pierson & Unaka.
Sweet message from a neighbor. Sharing with her permission:
“Hi Donna, this is Peggy Davidson. I am calling to tell you that I love the sign that says Amity Gardens. In the 61 ones that I have been here there has been no indication at all that this was Amity Gardens. It was quite nice to see a sign that says Amity Gardens when you arrive. Thank you to all that helped to make this happen.”
CONGRATULATIONS to Heidi Schultz at 5317 Unaka Avenue for being chosen for July Yard of the Month!
“I am Heidi!
In my twenties I moved around a lot. In my thirties I bought this house.
I belong here—in this great neighborhood with even GREATER neighbors.
I am so very grateful to be here and a part of Amity gardens.
I am a mom to a cat and dog who I love dearly. Taqito and Pancake. I am also a mom to about 70-100 plants I tend to. It is my therapy. That’s me!”
