Dinner and Show News!

Finneytown High School will explore uncharted territory this winter when it presents the student version of LES MISÉRABLES. Director Shawn Maus "dreamed a dream" years ago that students would someday mount a full-scale production of LES MISÉRABLES. That dream will be realized on January 30 through February 1, 2014. This powerful tale is a story of hope, redemption, and love. Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and $8 for students.

FMPA invites you to enjoy unlimited spaghetti dinner by LaRosa’s, desserts donated by your neighbors, and entertainment by Finneytown’s finest musicians. On Friday, January 31st from 5-7PM, the Multipurpose Room is transformed into an Italian restaurant and nightclub. Take it easy, feed the family cheaply, and get a great parking place for the Finneytown High School theatre production of LES MISÉRABLES, which follows at the William Swartzel Performing Arts Center. Between bites and while you enjoy the music, browse the Bid-and-Buy tables! You can pick up some great deals while supporting the work of FMPA.

Message from Gracepoint Church

Dear View Place Neighbors,

Just stopping by to say an official 'Happy New Year' to everyone.  As some of you may know, my wife our two boys and I came to Finneytown & the view place community several months ago this year to assume the new pastoral role at Grace Point Church here in the view place community.  in the short time that we have been here we have so enjoyed meeting so many of you as we are getting adjusted.  I want to thank Joe Gorman and the other members of the civic association for be-friending me.  

We were so excited to be a small part of helping families in our community during this holiday season, and now that things are a bit more in order, we are preparing to launch some great community programs in 2014!

We pray the best for all in this New Year

Neighborhood News

Beverly Dean, daughter of Jeff and Lyn Dean on View Place Dr., graduated from Alaska Pacific University on December 14th, 2013. She earned a bachelors in education. Jeff and Lyn just returned from Anchorage where they attended the graduation and had all kinds of other fun!

Jake Garrett, son of Katie and Aaron Garrett, is our new Hilltop News Carrier.  Hilltop News is an invaluable means to stay connected to the community. Following in the footsteps of previous neighborhood carriers, he would appreciate your support and  call Hilltop to subscribe to the newspaper. As you know, it's challenging doing the collection around the neighborhood.  Some kids in other neighborhoods have shorter walks, sidewalks, and densely populated routes.  So when our View Place kids take on this responsibility to collect, show your support by saying hello and being patient.

Volunteers Needed for Flower Boxes with Decorations

Dear Neighbors,

The flower boxes around the neighborhood have been maintained by a handful of neighbors.  During the holiday season, I am requesting that a volunteer step up to maintain a flower box near their intersection and do the following during the holidays.  Currently, we need 10 volunteers to maintain the boxes for the holidays.

1) Carefully remove and roll up the ribbon neatly to recycle for next year.  The ribbons are expensive to replace, but they are durable and will last if care is used in storing.     

2)  Remove the "greenery" and decorative bulbs and put in a container until after Thanksgiving. 

3) The weekend following Thanksgiving, take the contents out of your container to decorate the boxes. 

4)  If you have any questions, contact or 821-5714.
