Mark your calendars for Porch Crawl 2013: April 13, 2013! This year, each street will take you back in time to a different decade. On Palo Pinto, you’ll go back to the Roaring 20′s! On Belmont, you’ll be hangin’ out in the 1960′s. On Velasco, you can rock out to your favorite hair band (on your Sony Walkman) in the 1980′s. Starting at 6:00pm at the first house, we will continue with a stop at each house every hour. Last year, we had well over 150 people turnout throughout the night. We hope to see you there!

This is our 9th year! Please join us. We have some new activities this year and some popular comebacks from years past.
Queso Contest: New this year at Fall Party!
Got a great queso recipe you want to show off? Bring it to the annual BACD Fall Party on November 4th. Blue Goose is sponsoring the chips and a prize for the winner. We’ll have a table set up with electric outlets so you can plug in the crockpot. So bring your tastiest and cheesiest dip and take the challenge! Votes will be cast for queso chefs the same as they are for the chili-cookoff, by using a tip jar. Queso chefs are recommended to bring a small notecard sign with their name or the name of their queso. And you are always welcome to decorate the area around your entry, but its not necessary. Chips and plates will be provided.
National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationship between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. Approximately 5,000 households are represented by the three neighborhood associations that host the event – Lower Greenville, Lakewood Heights, and Lowest Greenville West. Our event generates 800-1,000 attendees each year.
On hand will be police officers to talk to about crime concerns. In addition, we will have exhibits from quality-of-life and charitable organizations. As usual we will have the face painters, hotdogs, musical entertainment, and a bounce house.
This is a great opportunity to have some fun, meet some neighbors, and learn a little something about health and safety. Look for the manila flyer on your doorstep. Be sure to join us!
FALL PARTY 2012 is just around the corner. New this year we’d like to showcase homemade and handmade items made by you, our neighborhood residents. The party will feature an “Artisan’s Corner” for members of the neighborhood to showcase a hobby, talent or craft. Do you have a signature dish? Are you a quilter, knitter or jewelry maker? Is painting, ceramics or photography your hobby? Have other items you’ve created that you’d like to show off? The planning committee would love to showcase your talens. Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
