We will host our Annual July 4th Parade at 9:15 am Saturday with vehicles only this year due to restrictions in place from COVID19. Please deck out your car, truck, or golf cart, crank up some patriotic tunes and come drive the ‘hood with us in honor of Independence Day! We will have prizes for best decorations and Sunset slush for participants.
We will have pre-scooped Rainbow USA Slush at 2 pickup spots near the end of the parade. Please email President@huntingtownefarms.com to indicate the number of slushes you would like for your parade-goers so we will have the correct number ready! One per person please.
No other flavors will be available this time but if you would like to order Slush, contact neighbor Kelly Brown at 704-607-4938.
Thank you to all of our neighbors for their amazing landscaping skills and attention to detail in their yards. This year’s competition was especially fierce with many nominations in every section! Congratulations to this year’s winners!

We on the HFNA Board of Directors want to make sure that all residents have someone to contact in case self-isolation or mandated quarantine prevents a neighbor from being able to get to the grocery store, pick up medicines, or any other needed activity.
If you need assistance, whether it is borrowing a cup of flour or going to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, please contact one of the HFNA board members listed below. They will take your contact information and what you need, and then connect you with a neighbor who will be happy to assist!
Kim Riddle: 704-763-1226 John Sechrist: 770-289-9134 Matthew Ridenhour : 704-880-4916
