Membership Newsletter 2018
It’s that time of the year to reflect on how we live and where we want our community to go. It’s that time of the year to consider what we can do for our community. It’s that time of the year for us to become part of our community. It’s that time of the year to pay our Kings Park dues.
Kings Park is a friendly community where we all look out for each other. The Civic Association has maintained its unique character by committing to a quality of life that we all want. So how do we attempt to provide this quality of life with the money collected from dues.
Well, first off we maintain our entrances, nubs and common areas. This is accomplished by paying a contractor and by volunteer work. In May, we have our annual Clean-Up day. The county brings in trash trucks to the park for us to get rid of unwanted stuff. Volunteers will come to your home and pick up large items. Our quality of life is only maintained when we maintain our property.
Our Seniors enjoy a lunch at a local restaurant where they get a chance to meet and greet each other. It’s important that we don’t forget those residents who have made Kings Park what it is today.
July is our annual picnic in the park - preceded by our parade. During the picnic the Kings Park Band plays patriotic music for our enjoyment. It’s our chance for all residents to come together. It’s amazing how many kids who have moved out come back to visit their parents and come to the parade and picnic with their children.
What is that wonderful aroma - guess it’s Octoberfest. Members get together for home-made brats and sauerkraut. Along with strudel and other German foods. Many of our residents have served in the military and have lived in Germany and many others have traveled to Europe and enjoy the memories this gathering provides. Prost!
In December we celebrate the winter season with a Children’s Holiday Party. The participants are serenaded by our Kings Park Band while doing crafts and enjoying the cupcakes they won during the Cupcake Walk . Our children look forward to visiting with Santa during this annual event.
The association also pays dues, insurance fees and donates to local organizations including the Kings Park Band. Remember we are a volunteer organization. Members of our board have attended many meetings to ensure our voice is heard for the Braddock Road improvements.
And let’s not forget the Gazette delivered to all residents and the directory provided to members. Kings Park is about making memories.
Please fill in the form provided as an insert in this Gazette, and mail your check in the envelope provided. You may also go to our website www.kings-park.org and pay by PayPal. Please fill out the form exactly as you want your name to appear in the directory. If you have a spouse or significant other please list his/her name.
Thank you for paying your Kings Park Civic Association dues and for helping us maintain your quality of life.
