The Brady Heights Neighborhood Association will be holding our June meeting this Saturday, June 20th, at 10am. Per usual, we’ll be meeting at Centenary United Methodist at 631 N. Denver.
This month we will be welcoming TFD Administrative Fire Chief, Kevin Matthew. Mr. Matthews will be discussing his Beat the Streets initiative. Beat the Streets is a program that employees and trains neighborhood young people to help care for their neighborhoods using the power of cooperative economics. Come hear about this exciting program sponsored by the Future Business Leaders of North Tulsa.
You can read more about Beat the Streets in these pieces published by The Oklahoma Eagle and The Tulsa World.
As always, please encourage your neighbors to attend. . . We love to have new faces!
Coffee, doughnuts and a sitter will be provided
Thanks to everyone who attended the Alert Neighbors meeting last Thursday! It’s great to see so many new faces coming together to better our community! Many thanks to Major Williams and Tom Hutchinson for volunteering their evening to speak to us. Thanks also to new neighbor Tony Gervasio who is the new chair of our Alert Neighbors Committee.
This Saturday we will be having our general meeting at 10am in our regular spot at Centenary United Methodist. We won’t be meeting too long this month since it’s Mayfest/ Blue Dome weekend, and many of us just met last Thursday. We’ll be discussing some of the major points from the Alert Neighbors meeting for those who weren’t able to attend. I also have extra Alert Neighbor booklets and decals for those interested. We’ll also be going over our active committee groups. Sign up sheets will be available for those who would like to volunteer their time by serving on a committee.
If you have a little bit of time on your hands, please consider voting for your favorite Tulsa places in Urban Tulsa’s Absolute Best of Tulsa. I don’t want to sway anyone’s votes, but do remember our neighborhood business owners, as well as businesses and people who help to support Brady Heights! There’s a category for Best Public Art AND Best Neighborhood. . . so vote your conscience
Also, please take a moment to give feedback about the different PlaniTulsa proposed scenarios.
This Thursday, May 7th, at 6pm The Brady Heights Neighborhood Association will be holding an informational meeting on the Alert Neighbors Program. We will be meeting in our regular location at Centenary United Methodist.
The meeting will be conducted by a representative from the Tulsa Crime Commission who will be offering us training and advice as we begin our Alert Neighbors program. There will also be a Tulsa Police Department patrol officer in attendance to answer specific questions about our area. If you missed the April meeting with Capt. Tipler, or if you’ve thought of new questions, here’s a second opportunity to have your concerns addressed by the TPD! The Crime Commission will also be providing Alert Neighbors stickers and pamphlets to those in attendance.
Since we’ll be starting at 6 pm, we’ll be serving pizza to keep everyone from starving.
Please tell your neighbors about this meeting! There will be a lot to learn and share. I’m sure that everyone in this community has something they can add to the discussion!
This Saturday, April 18th, is the Brady Heights Neighborhood Association general meeting. As usual, we’ll be meeting at Centenary United Methodist at 631 N. Denver. The meeting begins at 10 am and a sitter will be provided.
This month we will be forgoing regular business in order to welcome two special guests.
Laureen Gilroy, the Recycling Coordinator for the City of Tulsa, will be giving a presentation on the disposal of yard waste and recycling. Our second guest speaker is Captain Karen Tipler of the Tulsa Police Department. Capt. Tipler will be presenting a crime report for our neighborhood as well as responding to questions & concerns from the neighborhood. Both presentations will be incredibly valuable during the coming warmer months and I hope to have a large turnout! Please encourage your neighbors to attend.
After the meeting, at around 11:30, we will be holding the Annual Plant Swap at the Community Garden. Bring your extra plants, seeds and sprouts to exchange with others! Both indoor and outdoor plants of all varieties are welcome. All plants will be free to good homes, and you don’t need to bring a plant in order to participate. We will also be grilling and providing a casual picnic lunch. Although not at all required, please feel free to bring a dish to share.
Here’s hoping for good weather, and I’ll see you all on Saturday!
This coming Saturday, January 10, at 10:00 A.M. at Centenary Methodist Church located at Denver and Golden. Enter at south door.
Come enjoy a hot breakfast served to the first fifty or so in attendance!
