Join us for GWCA’s 35th Garden Walk, August 6th, 1-5

Hope you’re all in town to enjoy this special event from Graceland West Community Association.  You’ll see 40 neighborhood gardens and green spaces.  It’s the best day of the year to invite your friends, families and co-workers to share the day with you and see your neighborhood.

Even if you’re not on the Garden Walk, if you can, please help us show our neighborhood off to neighbors and visitors by doing any needed cleanup (garden, landscape, sidewalk, street or alley) before August 6th.

GWCA is launching blue (sky and Lake Michigan) and white parkway signs at major neighborhood intersections to help promote meetings and events.  Event maps will be on the GWCA website calendar – www.gracelandwest.org

Does GWCA Leadership reflect / represent neighborhood?

GWCA has 9 council members, who serve 18 month terms.  We do all possible to encourage neighbors of all ages, backgrounds and living throughout the neighborhood geography to serve on the council or as block reps or on a committee.

The past 12 council members have lived on Ashland, Belle Plaine, Berteau, Cullom, Cuyler, Greenview and Warner.  Going back to the last 20 council members, 3 have lived in apartments, 3 in condos, 8 in homes and 6 have owned and lived in 1-3 unit buildings.  Age has ranged from 23 – 73.

Serving on the GWCA Council is a great way to meet neighbors, make new friends, address issues, bring new ideas or seat a needed initiative.  8 of our most recent 10 council members had only lived in Graceland West for 12 – 30 months before being elected to the council.  We encourage all to get involved.  One Council seat is open.  Just reply at info@gracelandwest.org if you’re interested.
