NEW Amity Gardens Yard of the Month Sign!

We LOVE Sophisticated Steel Fabrication and Tammie’s artistic talent and can’t wait to find out which yard gets it first!

Next weekend (Saturday or Sunday evening) will be Christmas Lights/Yard judging. Someone from outside of Amity Gardens will come and pick the December Yard of the Month!

P.S. This is one of the many things that your yearly neighborhood association dues help pay for. It also helps pay for events, website, etc…… The $10 per household dues are tax-deductible. Every little bit helps.

Happy 250th Birthday to the Queen City!

Happy Birthday, Charlotte! On this day, 250 years ago, Charlotte was founded when British Governor Tryon signed the charter on December 3, 1768. The Queen City, which is older than the United States itself, sits along two trading paths carved by the Catawba Indians. Of course, we now know them as Trade Street and Tryon Street.

Charlotte was named in honor of England’s King George III’s wife Queen Sophia Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

When the town was chartered, King George III and Queen Charlotte ruled the colonies. It’s believed that in order to stay in the King’s good graces, the locals named their new township “Charlotte Town” in honor of the Queen and the county after her German homeland Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

Eastern Hills Baptist Church Christmas Party

Eastern Hills (where we have our neighborhood meetings) is hosting a Christmas party for the surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday, December 8th from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

The event is FREE and open to all ages.

The Amity Gardens Neighborhood Board will be helping with the cookie decorating station. We have several volunteering to help, but we can always use more help. Please let us know if you would like to help for a 30 minute shift. (thriftyblonde@gmail.com)

P.S. You can get to the church via Pierson Drive. Just go under the Independence bridge and it will be on your right just a short distance from the bridge.

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
