The Whitland Area Neighborhood Association is hosting a creek clean up for Kingfisher Branch this coming Saturday, April 23rd starting at 9:00 am.  The greenery (privet, honeysuckle, and various trees, etc.) is in pretty good shape with limited trimming and removing needed (maybe some around the Rolland and Leonard intersection), however, the creek in general has a lot of trash and plant debris that needs to be cleaned up.  This shouldn’t take too long and we expect the Creek Clean Up to probably be over by 11:00 at the latest depending upon neighbor participation.  Come out, grab a trash bag and clean up for an hour or two, and return home for nice spring day.  We’ll meet at the Carden bridge at 9:00 and will have trash bags for all that join (gloves are recommended).  In the event of extreme weather or dangerous conditions around the creek (extremely high water) we will alert in advance and reschedule this event.

Where:​Right here at the Carden Bridge

When:​Sunday, December 12th at 3:30 pm

What: ​A family gathering to enjoy holiday cheer together over some warm winter beverages with fire pits and S’mores.​

Mark your calendars for a week from this Sunday, December 12th at 3:30 pm for this year’s WANA Holiday Party.  Due to the pandemic and possible risks we have decided to have an outdoor gathering at Mary Catherine Strobel Park at the end of Carden at the bridge at 3:30 on the 12th.  Since outside we hope to observe some reasonable social distancing and fresh air should help mitigate risks.  WANA will provide a couple of fire pits blazing, all of the makings for S’mores, and we will have a variety of warm/hot drinks including hot chocolate, hot cider, and an adult hot toddy for those over 21 that choose an adult beverage.  This is a full family event so bring the kids, get a S’more or two, and enjoy a warm drink while celebrating the season with other WANA folks. Hopefully the weather will comply, the Titans will be finished with a victory, and in the event of dangerous weather we will address on the 11th or 12th.  WANA assumes it will be a chilly day so dress accordingly.

On Saturday, September 25th WANA (the Whitland Area Neighborhood Association) will sponsor a neighborhood yard sale.  Several sales will be hosted within our neighborhood including sales on Carden Avenue, Leonard Avenue, Craighead Avenue, and Whitland Avenue.  Festive helium balloons will be indicators in front of each sale and there will be maps available at each site showing the location of all of the sales.  Please observe safety protocols for Covid and lets hope for a beautiful Saturday.

Additionally, this coming Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th will be our annual dumpster day.  Two 40 yard dumpsters will show up early to mid afternoon on Friday the 24th, they will be located on Whitland Avenue in front of 3750 Whitland (near Carden intersection) and in front of 3701 Whitland Avenue (near Craighead intersection), and they will be taken away mid afternoon on Saturday (Waste Management is a bit imprecise on their arrival and take away times).  These dumpster surprisingly typically fill up very fast so make definitive plans to arrive with waste Friday afternoon or as early as possible on Saturday morning.  Once full we will close the dumpsters and hopefully Waste Management will come and go at the appropriate times.  No chemicals, paints, or electric appliances are allowed in the dumpsters.

Hope all are remaining safe during our extended pandemic limitations.  Come on back normal life soon – please !!

Saturday, October 17th from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm

Meet at the Carden bridge on Rolland.  Bring loppers, trimmers, and hand saws if you can. We will pick up trash, clear debris, and cut back the Privet and other invasive plants along the creek. Cold bottled water will be available and please bring a mask, but, we will practice social distancing as cautiously as possible and work singularly to avoid issue.  This is probably not an event for children and our alternate date in the event of heavy rain or high water is the following Saturday the 24th at the same time.  If bad weather or high water a cancellation notice will go out over the Google Groups.

The 4th of July 2020 will be remembered for many years as the year we couldn't have a party due to the Caronaviris. However, a few residents went all the way with decorations and a family events on their front yards. If we had awards I think the top home would be the winner.. Photos from Cyril Stewart.

 Next Friday on June 12th, WANA has arranged for two food trucks to come to the top of Carden Ave. at Whitland Ave from 4:30 to 7:30.

Califarmia fresh California cuisine using local ingredients will provide the main food.  Califarmia uses a web based link for its orders and payments (credit cards only) that can be ordered a few days in advance or during its time at Carden on Friday evening.

Bradley’s Creamery will provide ice cream for dessert. Bradley’s also has a link that will be provided and they will accept walk up orders and cash/credit cards. 

 

 

 

WANA has arranged this event for your convenience. Hopefully it will be fun and yummy, and we continue to encourage social distancing.  This event is a pickup, maybe mingle a little, and take home your dinner/dessert situation. We look forward to this fun option next Friday. 

Steve Curnettte, WANA Steering Committee Chair

These photos were all taken in March and April 2020. Keep Calm was a postcard made in Britain to during the First World War. It would be just as importtant today for the caronusviris disaster. The next four photos start with the flooding at Easter and show the creek on Carden Ave. following down to the bridge and high water on Rolland Rd. The final photos were all taken on May 2nd starting at MBA, then the corner at Rolland Road with the ugly dead tree. A great job of cleanup followed a crew of neighbors did a grate job. A happy family is having fun fishing at the new steps.which makes a grand ending. They all got out of the water quickly when they discovered the snake in the rocks.The last photo shows the dry bed of the creek at Leonard.

This coming Saturday we are going to have an informal creek clean up starting at 10:00 AM.  In order to observe social distancing we will not be providing any food or drink and we will split up with trash bags for the majority of the clean up.  There may be a little cutting of brush around the Leonard/Rolland intersection.  I suspect if several show up to assist we can probably finish way prior to noon.

Check out the upcoming  Dog Show  on our Facebook.com/whitlandnashville/  

Stay safe and I hope to see some of you this coming Saturday morning at 10:00 am at the Carden bridge.

If you are out walking in Easter can you find the beautiful white azaleas under the magnificent dogwood in full bloom. It’s in the heart of WANA.

Dear WANA Neighbors,

COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on the world and our country.  If you are an older member of our community and feel that you could use some assistance, whether simply taking trash cans out and back or you have more urgent needs like the dropping off of food, please consider this Google groups as a forum in which you can reach out for help.  Our community has shown time again that we are there to help one another, and the Google Group could function as a way to match those needing help and those able to do so.  Find the GoogleGroup.com and select Whitland.   If you have not registered yet then go to Whitland.org, click on the Google Group tab, and fill in the required information. Your request will be approved and you can then post information on the Google Group. The Google Group is for Whitland Residents only.

 Best regards

    Steve Curnutte, President, Whitland Area Neighborhood Association
