November Yard of the Month!

Congratulations to Garrett & Kristin Botirius of 5114 Unaka Avenue for being chosen for the November Yard of the Month!!!

“My husband, Garrett and I have lived in Amity Gardens since 2006. Garrett is a big Ohio State fan, and you may hear him yelling or running down the street on many fall Saturdays. We have a son, Callan, and a new dog, MoosaBella. Cal and I were excited to hear about the Halloween decor challenge by our neighbor and wanted to make it a little spooky this year. I like to create costumes and decor on a budget, so we scoured thrift stores to create our own creatures and decorate with what we could find. We love the neighborhood and are excited to represent yard of the month for Halloween!” – Kristin

October Yard of the Month

Congratulations to Ben & Alicia Alford of 5014 Kistler Avenue, they are the winners of the October 2018 Yard of the Month!

“Ben and Alicia have lived on Kistler Ave since December 2016. They have two dogs, Beau and Zebbie, who have probably barked at you at some point😄. We’ve enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and like the neighborhood a lot. We bought this house as a “fixer-upper” of sorts and have been doing most of the work inside since moving in but have spent a lot of time in the yard too, cleaning it up and planting new things. Ben is a mechanical engineer in Charlotte and Alicia works for a local TV station in digital sales and advertising. We look forward to getting to know more neighbors so if you’re walking by, feel free to stop and say hi and meet us and the dogs too.

 

 

Need to pay your Amity Gardens dues? You can now pay online.

If you still need to pay your $10 (per household) neighborhood association dues, you can now pay online.

Dues help with numerous yearly neighborhood social events, printing costs, website domain, neighborhood beautification efforts, etc…… Many times members of the board pay for these items out of their own pockets.

Every $10 is a huge help and it is tax deductible. 😊

What a FUN night! THANK YOU to everyone that came out!

The 4th Annual Sweets & Greets was a success! This year we got a real treat and got to have the CMPD Providence Division Response Area 2 3rd Shift have Roll Call at the event! We filled them up with goodies, thank them for patrolling our neighborhood and wished them well during their overnight shift. They even got a little speech from retired CMPD Deputy Chief Glen Mowrey about the CMPD Police Foundation.#AmityGardens #CMPD

Also, a big thanks to our City Council Rep Matt Newton, NC House Representative John Autry, and Supervisor at Mecklenburg Soil and Water Conservation District Rep Nancy Carter. John and Nancy used to be our City Council Reps and always did a wonderful job! All three have VERY busy schedules and it was great they were able to stop by.
