Summer is the time when we take vacations, soak in the sun and get a bit of R&R, and we at NHCA found our place in the sun with many of our initiatives going full steam ahead.

June wrapped up with some great events. Our partnership with Vivo was absolutely wonderful as we loaded up onto the Neighborhood Fun Bus and travelled through the communities. We got to attend about 7 block parties, hand out balloons, swag and had the Play Ambassadors from Vivo organizing fun and games. I got the chance to talk to our residents. I heard many times about how their individual cul-de-sac or street worked together to watch out for one another, care for each other’s kids and keep the neighborhood safe… simply amazing. Getting to know your neighbor may take time and effort but the community it builds is immeasurable.

Our soccer season wound up with a big year-end party but our season definitely faced some hurdles. In fact, I would call it the “perfect storm” of challenging events. We want to let all of our soccer families know that we acknowledge that we had some pretty big hiccups this year from registration system issues, uniform sizing challenges and BBQ food delays at the end party. We are 100% committed to ensuring that we not only fix but improve on our delivery of the soccer program. I really appreciate the honest and frank feedback we received. We have already started to put into motion improvements so that the soccer experience continues to be one our community loves.

In June, the NHCA Board approved the hiring of a temporary position for a Community Engagement Coordinator. Over the next couple of months, our new hire Yana Soldatenko, will be pounding the pavement in an effort to connect with our residents, one-on-one. She will be canvassing to identify ways the NHCA can bring more value to the community, identify folks that would like to volunteer, promote some of the existing NHCA programs and develop an inventory of physical, creative and knowledge based assets we have at our disposal. Yana will be dropping into events, wandering through the community, knocking on doors and will basically be trying to connect with residents in any way possible. So, show her your community spirit and if you get the opportunity to chat with her please share your ideas, concerns and any insight we can use to improve the Northern Hills.

Enjoy the summer sun, wear sunscreen, sip lemonade, read a book, and relax.
