Summer Bags Nights


Summer Clean and Green

Please come out and join us for our summer clean and green this coming Sunday, June 29th at 11:30 am.  We will meet at Maplewood Park, distribute trash bags and spread out to help pick up litter around the neighborhood.  

Clean and Green days are a great way to help spiff up the neighborhood and enjoy some time outside meeting your neighbors.  Bring along the whole family!

This year's WBNA block party will take place on Sunday August 3rd!  Many more details to come, but we are looking for a few volunteers to help chair the event.  Please email  If you can't volunteer you're time but would like to sponsor an activity at the block party please let us know!  

Neighborhood Directory and Phone Tree
We have only heard from a handful of neighbors interested in helping out with the phone tree, so we are doing one more call for volunteers before we move ahead with the blocks that we have captains for.  In years past WBNA did have a phone tree used to inform neighbors about safety concerns and a dedicated volunteer was in charge of organizing the phone tree.  We are trying to get this started again, as well as a neighborhood directory where members of WBNA can opt-in to have their names and phone numbers listed. However, this is a huge task and we need your help.  If you are willing to be a block-captain, which would entail going door to door and compiling phone numbers of your neighbors, please email

Summer Bags/Corn hole Nights

We have heard some interest in a regular gathering for an evening bags game and are trying to get something organized, either at a neighbor's home or at one of our parks. Meet some neighbors and enjoy some friendly competition!  Please email if you are interested in participating.
