Our First Two Fundraising Events.

We have two offerings as a way to raise money for the neighborhood association. I would expect EVERYONE to participate in the first one. It is a raffle drawing for a 27" RCA Flat Screen TV with input and output. Output is in the front of the TV. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. They can be acquired through contacting one of the association's officers or sending an email message to or Please state your name, address and # of tickets wanted so that someone can deliver them to you and collect your money. The TV was donated by Robert Lipps and can be viewed at the November 14th meeting where you may also buy tickets. The drawing will be held at the December meeting on December 12th, 2005.
The second way to raise some money is this;
If you are a resident of Walnut Hills and you make a donation of $100 to the Walnut Hills Association, I will research the documented history of your home through library and county records and present you with a ring bound booklet of my findings. Having done this for my own place, I know exactly where to go for information. Besides, it helps me keep the trivia section going! All money goes to the Association. Contact Gary if you have any questions at 253-1359.
