Neighborhood Picnic- Rain or Sunshine 4:00 pm Saturday May 4

The Lakemoor Hills Homeowners Association (LMHA) Neighborhood Family Picnic is this Saturday May 4 at 4:00 pm rain or sunshine at Lake Hills Church. We will have tables, chairs and food inside the church, so if there is rain, we can still fellowship and visit.  Please bring a covered side dish or dessert to share. Pork and Chicken BBQ, tea, lemonade and water will be provided by the LMHA.

We have a Piñata for the kids along with games and crafts.  The Garden Club is sponsoring a Plant Swap.  There will be a car show on the grounds (weather permitting).  Since this is Derby Day, you may wear your Derby attire or Derby hat if you have one- but not required.

The picnic is Free and open to all residents of Lakemoor Hills.  Invite your neighbors.  Hope to see you there.

Call Suzan at 579-9001 if you have questions.

Caladiums for Beautiful Gardens

The Lakemoor Hills Garden Club is selling beautiful Caladiums.  We planted over 700 bulbs several months ago and they are now ready to sell.  The money raised goes to garden club projects at the Legacy Park and the new roundabouts at Alcoa Highway.

Caladiums are easy to grow in landscape beds and containers.  They like a little shade, but will grow in sun.   Shop early for best selection.  We have several varieties: Red Fancy Leaf, White Fancy Leaf and Pink Fancy Leaf.

5 plants for $20.00…..or $5.00 each.  Call 579-9001 and leave your order.  We will be selling them in the neighborhood, and let your friends outside of Lakemoor Hills know as well.  These are quality plants and much better than what you find at the big box stores.

Thank you!

New kids on the block

I have noticed three children playing in their yard in the 3400 block of Montlake Drive. This is the Rymer home that was recently sold and now we have new neighbors.  The three little children look to be between 4-7 years old.  They play under a tree near the road on your left as you go west on Montlake Drive.

PLEASE SLOW DOWN AS YOU GO DOWNHILL ON MONTLAKE.  Children in a new neighborhood may not be always aware of the potential danger of the cars and trucks on the road.

Better yet, SLOW DOWN on all of our neighborhood roads.  THANK YOU!

Gently Used or New Garden Supplies Needed for Refugee Garden

At the Lakemoor Hills Garden Club meeting earlier this month, a special guest from Bridge Refugee Services talked about this project described below.  They need to collect supplies prior to the end of the month of July.
If you have items that you can donate, please contact Jessica Barousse at
Bridge Refugee Services is working in partnership with the Trinity Foundation and with UT Gardens to develop a community garden to use as a therapeutic tool for newly arrived refugees or for those who have struggled continuously with PTSD or emotion regulation. Since a majority of the cultures Bridge works with do not value therapy, or rather mistrust it. Therefore it is essential to find alternative means to help encourage the therapeutic process with refugees through alternative means especially for those clients who are struggling to find work, have a previous history of experiencing extreme violence and oppression, and fleeing for their lives.
Bridge needs to purchase and find materials, as well as expert gardeners to help coordinate this program. They intend to build two 4×10 raised beds and need a hose, cardboard, fill dirt, darker organic soil mix (8-12 inch deep for each bed), organic fertilizers, mulch, and volunteers 🙂 

Once established, they will plant crops that are easily grown in this area, including green beans, squash, cucumbers, kale, spinach, turnips, cherry tomatoes. As an added bonus, there is a team working on converting an old bus into a storage and utility shed for this project that will be an added piece of art.

If you have any equipment, bags of soil, seeds or fertilizer that you can donate, please contact Jessica no later than Sunday July 30.  Thank you,
