HFNA members: Time to renew (or join) for 2017

It’s that time again! We had our annual meeting last month, we’ve elected new section leaders, and put together a crime watch committee and a membership committee.

Now we need your financial support! Your $45 annual dues pay for entrance maintenance and future renovations (including monthly electric and water bills), neighborhood events, the HFNA website, email software, our legal defense fund (which we might need if, for example, a bridge connecting one of our streets to a street across the creek is ever proposed), and other miscellaneous items that make our neighborhood one of the best in Charlotte!

Pay Dues

Ladies Club Book Swap on June 1

The Huntingtowne Farms Ladies club will get together once more before summer kicks into high gear. Please join HFLC members for a book swap on Thursday, June 1, at 7 p.m. at the SouthPark Swim and Tennis Club Gazebo (2200 Huntingtowne Farms Lane).

Bring two books to swap—novels, non-fiction, cookbooks, coffee table books . . . anything but children’s books. BYOB and if you don’t want to swap books, come anyway!

The HFLC holds social gatherings every month or two (except during the summer). The events are very casual and give women in the neighborhood a chance to catch up and have fun.

Not on the Ladies Club mailing list or want to know more? Please email Kim Riddle.

Don’t leave valuables in your car. If you’re away from home, make it look like someone is there (leave lights on timers, have someone get your mail, etc.).
