2023 Block Party
The HOA will once again be participating in the Annual City of Owasso Community Block Party. The Block Party will be held on Sept. 09, 2023 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. This year we are asking the residents to bring something for a pot luck! If your last name starts with the letters A-M, bring a side dish. If your last name starts with letters N-Z, bring a desert. The HOA will supply hotdogs, fixings and everything else. Bring a lawn chair if you like. There will be live music, food, a bounce house, and the city will bring out some city vehicles (maybe a police car, ambulance, fire truck, trash truck, or others). The party will be by the north end of the pond and in the cul-de-sac in the NE corner of the neighborhood at the north end of North 132nd East Ave. Come on out, meet your neighbors and enjoy a fun evening! You can also check out the new pergola over the picnic table if you haven't yet!
The HOA has added a new set of "Duck Crossing" signs to the neighborhood to help protect our neighbor-ducks that like to cross the road. The signs are located on 112th where the ducks are known to frequently cross the road. The signs are made of reflective material and feature the clear message: "Caution Duck Crossing." When you see the signs, please remember to drive slowly in areas where our feathered friends are present and be prepared to stop when they are crossing the road. As spring arrives, there is an increase of not only the ducks crossing the road, but kids and other residents. Please, please pay extra close attention to your speed and surroundings.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors (HNH)
What better way to show your support than to help a neighbor in need! Your HOA is starting a program, Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN). We are looking for a pool of volunteers to assist others that are in need. The types of support that will be provided are trash pull out/put away, meal trains, and small errands. If you’re going out of town and need your trash pulled out or put away, we can assist with that! If you’re ill or just don’t have the means to get to the grocery store or pharmacy, we can assist with that! And lastly if you’re enduring a serious hardship such as death in your family, severe illness we can start a meal train to help you and your family! We’d like to first collect volunteers! Our hope is to gather 15-20 volunteers. Once our pool of helpers is established we plan to launch NHN March 1st! Should you need assistance, contact Cassandra Smith via email at email@example.com (preferred) be sure to put NHN Owasso in the subject line. You can also reach out to Sharon Hanson at 918.894.3120 and you are always welcome to submit requests via our website! Thanks!
HOA Annual Meeting
The date, time and location for the 2023 HOA Annual Meeting has been set. This year's annual meeting will take place at a different location than in previous years. The meeting will be held at New Life Assembly Church at 12215 N. Garnett Rd. in Collinsville (just north of German Corner). Thank you to Doug Wright for helping to secure the location! The meeting will be on Nov. 16, 2023 at 6:30 PM. We will have quite a few updates from the year, go over the financials from the year, and introduce our new management company. Please make plans to attend if you can.
Picnic Table Shelter
The HOA has partnered with the City of Owasso through their Owasso Strong Neighborhood Initiative (OSNI) program. We were awarded a grant to help cover the cost of a new shelter covering the picnic table on the north end of the pond. Robert Smiddy and Sean Cryer headed up the project and both donated time, physical labor and materials to the project as well. They were able to obtain a shelter at a greatly reduced cost from Ironwood Havens in Coweta. Our hope is that the shelter will be used and enjoyed by all of our residents and will be a gathering place for the neighborhood.

Free Little Libraries
Our neigborhood now has two new sharing libraries for everyone's use! There is one installed near the 129th street entrance at the corner of. 113th St. N and 130th E Ave. The other is instaled on 131st E Place by the creek on the south side of the pond. Thank you to the Horst family and the Smiddy family for their kind donations! How does it work? The Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book or share a book. They function on the honor system. You do not need to share a book in order to take one. If you take a book or two from a little library, try to bring some to share to that same library, or another in your area, when you can.
