Now in it’s 27th year, the NHHA Independence Day Celebration is a signature event in Northwood Hills. COVID-19 has introduced new challenges this year, but with a little creativity, our neighborhood will still be able to celebrate our Independence safely. Instead of NHHA hosting a parade and festival at Northwood Hills Elementary, our residents will be the hosts and the festivities have the potential to span the entire neighborhood! Homes and yards will be decorated and residents will traverse our streets in golf carts, trucks, Jeeps, and antique and specialty cars, hopefully filled with costumed characters, decorated pets, and festive families.
We’d like to thank our corporate sponsors, who help ensure NHHA is able to organize events like this. We appreciate their support!
- Rach Potter, Housed Real Estate
- Ready Roofing & Renovation
- Mitra Shamsa, The Shamsa Group
- Melinda Spence, Compass Real Estate
- Sunnyland Furniture
- Judy Switzer & Associates
- Traver Construction
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Decorate, Decorate, Decorate! Show your patriotism by placing decorations on your house, in your yard, in your trees, in your driveway, etc. Let NHHA know that you’ll be decorating your property so we can include your address on a map that we provide to residents. This is an important aspect, so we ensure participants know to drive by your house. If you or your kids or your pets want to dress up in costume, make sure you’re on the list and that you sit out front on July 4th between 9 and 10:30am so passersby can see you. Want to ensure the most visibility? Get your neighbors to decorate too! The more homes that participate on a street or cul de sac, the more likely people will drive down it.
We know you like showing off your Jeeps and antique cars and other vehicles, so don’t forget to decorate them as well! When you drive through the neighborhood checking out the festive houses, get the heads turning! Don’t be afraid to broadcast patriotic music to let us know you’re coming.
Need an activity? We’ve put together a scavenger hunt inside the neighborhood. Print the list or save it to your phone and head out on a walk or drive to see if you can spot all the items. While you’re at it, snap a photo of you or your kids on your excursion, or while doing anything else outside to keep yourselves occupied during this unusual time, and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to include your photos in an upcoming newsletter article about what our residents did to keep themselves occupied, happy, and engaged during the shelter in place orders.
This weekend is the Annual April Alley Clean-Up. Since Bulk Trash pickup for Northwood Hills begins Monday, April 13, this is the perfect opportunity to tend to your alley and dispose of any brush or debris you clear out. Each homeowner is responsible for maintaining the area from their back property line to the center of the alley. That includes trimming bushes so they don’t scrape cars or obstruct the alley. Trees that overhang the alley are required to be trimmed up 15 feet to allow clearance for garbage collection trucks. If trucks have to maneuver to avoid your branches, trash, or other debris, chances are they will cause damage to your alley in the process! Let’s keep it clean. You can start placing items at your curb this Thursday, April 9.
