My husband and I moved to Arbor Hills in November 2018. We spent the first year in our home mostly living out of boxes while we planned our wedding. We attended a couple of the food cart nights and got to know a few of our neighbors but I spent most of my free time planning and prepping for the wedding and honeymoon. We joined the neighborhood association, but didn’t have much time to dedicate outside of that. Even though I didn’t have much time, I always felt like I was a part of the neighborhood. Between a welcome from our block captain and the regular newsletters, we felt like a small piece of a larger whole. In the second year of living in Arbor Hills we had some new neighbors move in that didn’t have the same experience. They didn’t know about the AHNA, which made me feel like I needed to take action to make others feel welcome. I think there is a great opportunity for our neighborhood association to have better outreach to our new and younger neighbors, and I’m hoping that I can be a part of that!
