Peter Howell Neighborhood Halloween Trick Or Treat parade

Our neighborhood Halloween Trick Or Treat Parade was a wonderful event! Neighbors were welcomed at Alvernon Park to take festive pictures by Dave Carter from Carter Photography at 4:30pm, and at 5:00pm, our parade began. Led by the amazing Sol Axe percussion band, we made our way around the neighborhood, trick or treating from Longfellow, down 3rd street to Irving Circle, down Roberts, and back to Longfellow. Neighbors on the path gave out candy, and those who wished to give out candy but did not live along the path were welcomed to set up on curbsides and give out candy also. Peter Howell Elementary donated bags and bags of candy, which Nancy Huff gave to those neighbors who wished to give out the candy.

All in all, it was a lovely event, and we saw many of our neighborhood children (as well as from other neighborhoods!) enjoying this event. We look forward to a successful event next year!

Please enjoy these photos from the event. Special thanks to Patty Martin and Dave Carter for taking excellent photos for each family (those will be posted as soon as possible), as well as to Peter Howell Elementary for the candy donations, and to Nancy Huff for running from street to street to make sure no one ran out of candy. We also have special thanks to Sol Axe band for volunteering their time and skill to take our festivities to the next level! And of course, thank you, neighbors, for making our neighborhood such a wonderful place to live!

2017 Annual Meeting

Each year, Peter Howell Neighborhood Association has an annual meeting to conduct business, elect new board of director members and provide a forum for neighbors to catch up with each other, and learn of neighborhood current events and association plans.

This year's annual meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:30 PM at Peter Howell Elementary School, 401 N. Irving Ave. You are invited to attend.

At the October 18 meeting, among the items we will cover are updates on the Tree Committee’s progress toward receiving a grant to plant ten new trees at Alvernon Park, and have Kate Gannon from Trees for Tucson speak on a grant for Watershed Management for our park. We will also have City Councilman Steve Kozachik speak on pertinent activities in Ward 6. John Sainz will present a proposal to rename Alvernon Park. We will also have our annual board of directors election, hopefully including some new faces - maybe you!

We look forward to seeing you there!
