THIS WEEK IN DEER PARK (2/26/18)
Catch up on what's happening in the neighborhood and with our association this week.
SPRING CLEAN-UP SET FOR MAY 12th
Spring is (not to jinx it) right about the corner and with the changing of the season comes our annual Spring Clean-Up event. Our dump site will again be at Bancroft Elementary (2724 Riverview BLVD) and you'll be able to bring down all the things you need to get rid of, free of charge! We'll be on site from 9am-2pm. Word on the street is our grill master Rick Long might be serving up some burgers. Mark your calendars!
WE ADOPTED A PARK!
We've been approved by our friends at Keep Omaha Beautiful to officially adopt Rudy Novacek Memorial Garden at 16th and Deer Park BLVD. During Spring Clean-Up on May 12th, we'll have teams of volunteers picking up trash both at Rudy Novacek and Deer Hollow Park at 18th and Deer Park BLVD. We'd love to have you join us. (If you're wondering, Deer Hollow Park is adopted by the South High School National Honor Society.)
