Ridglea North neighbors Rocked the Block

Several Ridglea North blocks "rocked the block" in May by hosting block parties. Pictured here is the 6400 block of Locke. Didn't get a chance to have a block party in May? RNNA encourages neighbors to get together anytime or to come to one of our upcoming events together. 

RNNA July 4th Celebration: Parade drivers wanted!

Plans are coming together for the annual RNNA July 4th celebration. The event lineup includes a parade followed by a gathering with neighbors in the park. RNNA is seeking parade drivers for our vehicle parade! All neighbors are invited to drive, and this is an easy and fun way for families and neighbors of all ages to get involved. Join us! Email event organizer Renee Mitcham if you'd like to drive in the parade or have any questions.

First Responder Appreciation

We love our first responders! Did you know RNNA organizes monthly treat deliveries to our police, firefighters and EMS teams? Big thanks to Ridglea North neighbors JK Doyle (far left) and Carolyn Dollahite (in blue) for their snack donation last month to our local Medstar team. Would you like to get involved with first responder appreciation? Contact Outreach Coordinator Suzie Jary.

Yard of the Month

The June Yard of the Month has been awarded to 6417 Drury, home of Connie & Bill Koehler. Their yard has been admired for many years for the beautiful roses lining the sidewalk. Since rosetta damaged most of the roses, Connie relaced them with a variety of plants this year. The result is a beautiful splash of color leading to the front porch. This includes lambs ear, baby gem boxwoods, dwarf crepe myrtle, dwarf juniper, geraniums and daisies. You must drive by – you will be inspired! Connie & Bill, along with their neighbors, Richard, Miranda, Eli & Madison Miller, have extended their talent for beautiful gardens to Berney Park. They have adopted the large bed on the west end of the park and are working diligently to weed & revitalize that area of the park. Many thanks to Connie, Bill and all our neighbors who work so hard to keep Ridglea North a beautiful place to live. Contact Una Bailey if you would like to make a nomination for Yard of the Month.
