Halloween on Colcord – Oct. 31st

For the last several years, a 6 or so block stretch of Colcord Avenue has become a destination for local trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Several of our Sanger-Heights neighbors have offered their homes as trick-or-treating locations, provided candy or other giveaways, helped with crowd control and safety, or a myriad of other ways. If you can help this year, please fill out the following form:

Pssst….wanna Sanger-Heights flag?

You may have already seen a few of them around the neighborhood.  How do you get one of your own?

  • Come to the SHNA meeting this Monday, Sept. 12 at 6pm in the Provident Heights Elementary library and become a member.
  • Email info@sangerheights.org and demand one be placed in your yard immediately.
  • Wait for Congress to pass a resolution approving an emergency flag allocation for the neighborhood.

Two of these three strategies have been shown to work very effectively.  We’ll let you decide the right one for you – see you around the neighborhood!

The flags are coming…

For the last 10 months a group of Sanger Heights pastors and stakeholders have worked on the Sanger-Heights Neighborhood Flag Project. The idea is to place 175 Sanger-Heights flags on major thoroughfares in Sanger-Heights to tell everyone that this neighborhood has a name, that residents take pride in this place and care about it, and so should you when you come to visit. We need your help to make this project happen.

Would you commit three hours (10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.) of your time this Saturday, August 27? People from several Sanger-Heights churches and organizations will go out in teams to talk to people in the neighborhood to: learn their thoughts about the neighborhood, discover leaders, and find people who want a flag placed in their yard. August 27 kicks off with a brief training session from 10:00-10:45 am at Rick Allen’s house (2211 Colcord), and then we’ll hit the streets. EVERYONE and ANYONE is welcome! Contact Chad (498-3362) or Walker (214-5663) for more info.


Waco Time Exchange orientation & potluck – Fri, Aug. 19 @ 6:30pm

Waco Time Exchange Orientation and Potluck
Fri, August 19, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Location: NeighborWorks Waco, 922 Franklin Avenue

This orientation will cover how to register and navigate the online
time bank application. Bring a potluck meal or beverage to share.
Optional: bring your laptop. For more information, contact Fernando
Arroyo at 254-307-1728 or email wacotimeexchange@gmail.com.

What is a time bank? At its most basic level, time banking is simply
about spending an hour doing something for somebody in your community.
That hour goes into the Time Bank as a Time Dollar. Then you have a
Time dollar to spend on having someone doing something for you. It’s a
simple idea, but it has powerful ripple effects in building community
connections.  More at wacotimeexchange.wordpress.com.
