Your May update from Neighborhood Watch. Attend the meeting for more details and a special presentation!

Hello Neighbors!

Neighborhood Watch is once again revamping and we need you! We will combine our efforts with the Social Committee and make this years goal to get neighbors out meeting each other. Your involvement is welcome, needed and appreciated by both committees. Let us know your ideas/ suggestions!

For the month of May we are asking anyone to volunteer as Committee Chairs and Block Captains.

Committee Chairs are those who would like an active part in planning and carrying out our duties for events and meetings. We need 1 to 3 people to join us. You can email us your interest or let us know at the BBQ!

Block Captains, this group will be the liaison on your street to help with communication between the two committees. It would be great to have one block captain to every 10 to 15 houses. Your job is to be open to neighbors who may have something to say to the committees, or you may have info to forward via a note card given by the committees. Very simple but so important for all of us!

So with this in mind time for a contest! READY – SET – GO!

Be the first to sign up for your street and win a prize!

We will hand out the prizes at our June meeting so we have one month to get as many of you as we can to help out! If you are interested please email us with your name, address and phone number and we will get in touch! include any questions you may have. EmailWaterleafneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com

 

Upcoming events- mark your calendars!

June 3 – Sidewalk Coloring, get your family and chalk out front and get some art on the sidewalks! Imagination – please create a safety message/design. Then take a walk through the neighborhood and enjoy. Meet some neighbors!

July 4 – neighborhood parade and NW first annual Stars and Stripes Yard Award. Prize given for most patriotic yard display. Watch for details in June newsletter.

The neighborhood has been quiet this past month in terms of incidents. But please remember, the warm weather brings many outside. Slow down on the roads, keep eyes open for all using the sidewalks and streets. Keep our pets on leashes. Lights on out front in the evenings.

Stay safe,
Michele, Jeff and Jason

Megan Honick

My name is Megan Honick; Chris whom has been my wonderful husband of 8 years and also a beautiful daughter Ashley that is 6 years old and you may have seen her around selling the Famous Girl Scout Cookies. My Family and I moved here from Las Vegas, Nv almost 2 years ago, we had an opportunity to better my daughter’s life and ours by moving to the Wonderful state of Texas and we chose Kyle for better schooling as well as the Best communities around. I have been the Social Committee Chair for about 6 months now and I feel like I can do more to help my extended family! I would be Honored to be your voice of the Waterleaf Community and make it the Best in Kyle!

Jason Lolley

Jason and his family have lived in Waterleaf Falls for 2.5 years. In that time, he has served as a Neighborhood Watch Committee Chair and was part of the task force that reviewed and amended the HOA by-laws in 2013. He was appointed to the Board in December 2014 to fill a position left vacant by the resignation of one the KB members.

Angela McGrady

My name is Angela McGrady and I moved to Waterleaf Falls in March of 2011. We relocated to Kyle in July of 2008 from Atlanta, GA. My family consists of my husband, Jason, my five-year-old son, Zander and our three-year-old Chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) Kahlua. We selected this area because we liked the small town feel of Kyle and were accustomed to living in the suburbs of a large city. Waterleaf seemed the perfect choice and we have grown to love our friends and neighbors, who call it home.

I have been very involved in the community since early 2012, when I became a Chair of the Social Committee. I love meeting neighbors and helping with activities. However, my strengths are more in communication, writing, and organization, so in 2013 I joined the Communication Committee as a Chair. In addition to aiding my co-chair in the newsletter, signage, and website, I also act as a Moderator on the Waterleaf Subdivision Facebook Group. I help to ensure that accurate information is shared with the community and all residents have a respectful avenue in which to share information.

One of my passions is to volunteer with non-profit groups. I have assisted PAWS Animal Shelter and Humane Society in a pet micro-chipping event in Waterleaf, and would like to plan another this spring. My position in Commercial Real Estate affords me the opportunity to work with and support local organizations, so I am no stranger to volunteering my time, and by electing me as a director to the Board, I will serve Waterleaf with the same enthusiasm and effort that I offer to all of my organizations. In closing, I hope that you would consider me a strong candidate for this position. My education, experience, and skills would lend well to this appointment and I would like to see the community have a smooth transition from developer-run to resident-led board.
