April Yard of the Month

Congratulations to Pat Mallard at 2225 Lanier Avenue for being chosen for the April Amity Gardens Neighborhood Yard of the Month!

“Thank you for choosing my yard for April. I have lived in Charlotte and on Lanier Avenue since 2012. The move to Charlotte has been a challenge.
Meeting Jo Ann Henderson who lives on Dudley Avenue has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. We both attend First Baptist Church. Jo Ann and Larry are the best!” – Pat Mallard

Safety first….. Some thoughts from an Essential Worker.

Make a list for the store. Find out what you need ahead of time. Google product names. Have alternatives just in case store is out of your favorite brand.

If you need help from an employee ask them from 6 feet away. We talk to dozens of people everyday, we don’t want to be up close and personal.

If possible, leave your kids at home. (Teenagers too)

You may be bored, but please don’t come in to just browse and end up touching multiple things that you have no intention of buying.

Please, please leave your dog at home unless it is a service animal. This is for always, not just during a pandemic. Under no circumstances should you ever put your dog in a shopping cart. Carts do not get washed.

Please be patient with us, we are understaffed because a lot of our workers are out on leave because they are vulnerable to illnesses.

Please remember that we are worried about our health and the health of our family and friends just like you. Many of us are extremely stressed and trying to not show it to our guests.

Thank You,
Juan Torres

Congratulations to the Holiday Decorations Runner-Up!

Congratulations to the Guimond’s at 5368 Buena Vista Avenue! They are the Amity Gardens Holiday Decorations Contest Runner-Up!! They received a $25 gift card to Walmart that was graciously donated by Walmart Charlotte – E Independence Blvd.

“Our family has lived in Amity Gardens for almost 25 years. We raised our little girl here and part of that tradition was putting up our old school Christmas light each year the same way. The old large light bulbs and candles in the windows were her favorite. This neighborhood has been a great place to raise our family. It was our North Pole! When Fern returns home from college to see the Christmas lights at home, its like stepping back in time remembering those childhood Christmas memories in Amity Gardens.” Merry Christmas everyone from Jim, Suzanne & Fern!
