We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm at the Polk Co.Sheriff station on Ave G NW to discuss ways to better our community and make it safe for kids.
We are a community of over 8,000 people.Currently there are about 45 people that belong to the association.We stay active with the Polk County Sheriff's to keep our community as safe as possible.We do summer projects with the kids to try and keep them busy and have fun.they have to do community service with us and in return we take them on fishing,swimming,bowling,and football games as a Thank You for caring about your community.
I have applied for Grant money over the past 3 years and received $20,000 to improve our community.We have a Beautiful Park at Ave.J and 36th St NW at which 10,000.00 has been put into it.We planted tree's and shrubs,put benches around the exercise walkway for people to sit and enjoy.We have covered picnic areas with small grills to cook on,chess and checker board tables to play on.Community members try and keep check on it so we have a nice place to go and meet others and it is close to home.One couple open and close the park 365 days a year and trust me some people that visit this park are very rude to them and they are volunteering their time.
We have 2 schools in the community.2 elementary and 1 middle school.The teachers at these schools are very caring people.They try and keep informed of all situations.
