The 4th of July Parade is scheduled for 10:30 am and meet up is at Deanview Drive and Keats! Remember to wear your red, white, and blue ensemble and decorate your bikes, wagons, and tractors!  The parade goes from Keats, to Beachtree, and ends at the parking lot of St. X. High School. It is less than a 20 minute walk and fun for the kids and grandkids.  Family and friends are welcome to participate! 

Also welcome our new neighbors Ashley and Leroy on Commonwealth! Also new neighbors Alicia and Tom on Deanview in Bob and Janet Dean's mid-century California ranch. Wow! They restored the home to picture perfect mid-century Modern! 

Thanks to all the neighbors updating their homes, mowing and gardening their front lawnscape! Please continue to represent what we're all about here in View Place - community pride, caring neighbors, and a friendly a place we call home! 

About the Zoning Board and Appeal/Special exception to expand the Boy's Hope Home, there is no news. Last I heard, they were deliberating in an "executive" meeting to go over the information. I am hoping that Boy's Hope will see the safety issues, parking issues,  ongoing traffic of caregivers, and wear on neighborhood morale by considering another location for the boys.  More on this later.

Something we should all be concerned about -- a car was broken into on View Place.  Here is the account from one of our neighbors;

"Monday June 8th sometime during the night my car was broken into.  There was cigarette ashes left all over the steering wheel and belongings in the console were thrown around.  I filed a report with the police and they said if we see anything that seems funny in the neighborhood, or someone that looks like they are up to no!  Also, a reminder to keep any exterior lights on at night.  The officer did say they will try and increase the patrol during 3rd shift in our neighborhood."

See ya at the parade!

While going for a walk 2 days ago, my wife and i found the DVD player in the picture, thrown into the bushes on Viewplace, just past Rocky Road.

I'm thinking someone may have stolen it, then tossed it away, since that's how i found a radio that was taken from my vehicle a few years ago.

So, is anyone missing one? Were any cars, houses broken into last week?  FYI:  I checked with the police, they didn't know of any and weren't interested in taking the device.

Well, here's the picture, you can post it if you like.

Please remember to contact 911 if you see or hear anyone dropping off pets in our neighborhood.  Animal cruelty charges can be filed against the perpetrator if they are caught in the act or if they can get a good description of the car -- color, license, make, etc.   It happens so quickly but most people travel with their cell phones these days so if we can just remember this safety tip call 911 -- in our case, it will be Springfield Township responding.

Last Tuesday, someone  dropped off their 2 pit bull mix (Pitador or Labrabull) in our neighborhood. While the two dogs ended up being pretty friendly, we just can't take that chance not knowing their temperament.  The dogs were big enough to knock down and injure a small child or adult if approached.    In fact, they nearly took my screen out jumping up trying to get into my home because they were so hungry.

We all want to do the right thing in caring for strays by reuniting the ones who are lost and the ones who are clearly abandoned. Just keep in mind to contact 911 when you see someone dropping off dogs, cats, or other family pets into our neighborhood.
