July 4th Celebration

Can’t have a parade or picnic, but we won’t let a virus stop us from celebrating the 4th! Join the fun!


No parade, but we will have a motorcade. We will start at 10:00 am sharp at the Glenville Park parking lot. Decorate your car or truck in a patriotic theme. Best decorated car or truck wins $50 gift card, second place $25 gift card. Please arrive at 9:30 am so we can judge the entries and get organized.

For the safety of all involved, there will be absolutely no pedestrians or bicycles allowed in the motorcade.

The motorcade will proceed in manner as to not impede normal traffic. This is not a parade. The individual drivers are responsible to abide by all traffic regulations. Follow the route and instructions which will be provided when you check in by the organizer.

Judging of decorated vehicles will occur just before the start of the motorcade at the park parking lot.

Watch for the motorcade when it passes your home. Practice social distancing and current COVID-19 precautions.

Patriotic Theme Yard Decorating Contest

In place of the yard of the month, we are going to have a Patriotic themed yard contest. To participate, decorate your yard with flags, red white and blue streamers, bunting and the like. Get creative! $50 gift certificate prize for 1st place, $25 gift certificate for 2nd place.

Kids can participate too, with a sidewalk chalk art contest. Two winners, $10 cash each for the best patriotic themed drawing.

Registration required! Unlike the yard of the month we need people to register in advance so we can be sure and judge your entry and in particular the chalk art drawings. Sign up by sending an email to contest@ncpna.org. Be sure and include your address and the name(s) and age(s) of chalk artists so we can be sure to include them in the judging.

Judging will consider creativity and patriotic theme. Judging will occur between 10am and 3pm July 4th.

April Newsletter


As I write this the news is much better than we feared. While things are not yet back to normal, we believe that some of the restrictions will be relaxed soon. We will all have to adjust to a new normal.

Thanks to the great response in the neighborhood and I know that we have been pulling together. Please continue to be aware of your neighbors and be prepared to lend a hand, if you are able, and if not report a problem. Keep checking on your neighbors, particularly the ones who are elderly and live alone. That quick phone call, text or email can make a world of difference.
