Front Yard Social – June 12 @ 4-6 p.m.

Let's get social! Just look for the yards with the pink flamingos! 

On Saturday, June 12 from 4–6 p.m., take a wander around the neighborhood, sit in your front yard to socialize with passing neighbors, or visit the Social Hot Spot at David & Rosanne's home (7002 Coronado). Please bring a snack or beverage to share.

Front Yard Socials are monthly events on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 4–6 p.m. If you'd like to include your yard as a Social Hot Spot for July or another month, email Rosanne and Marissa. We will include your yard as a Social Hot Spot in a Front Yard Social update email or in the monthly newsletter so that other neighbors will know to stop by!

Ladies Night – Thursday, June 17 @ 7 p.m.

The June 17 Ladies Night will be hosted by Gabby Reed at 6947 Coronado! Come join the fun and see old and new neighbors. Bring a drink and/or snack to share. We had a great gathering in May and got to enjoy a lovely break in the rain on Kelly’s back porch.

Ladies Nights are monthly events on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 7–9 p.m. Email Donna Coker if you would like to host an evening in the future.

Men's Club Volunteer to host!

Men's Club had a fantastic turnout on May 6 but we don't have a host for the June 3 meeting. We need hosts for future gatherings! We hope to have Men's Club in a host's front/back yard or inside (according to the host's comfort) on the 1st Thursday of the month from 7–9 p.m. If you'd like more information or if you'd like to host Men's Club in July or another month, please email David.

New Neighbor Welcome Card

Welcome cards are available for block captains to deliver to new neighbors. They have information for new residents including how to sign up for emails, clubs, and crime watch. Please email Molly when you need one!

Crime Watch Program Update & Overview

As a reminder, please report all incidents to DPD as well as crimewatch@lakewoodhills.org so the neighborhood patrol officers can also stay informed.

If you are new to the neighborhood, this program is also known as as Expanded Neighborhood Patrol (ENP), and it allows Neighborhood Associations to hire an off-duty police officer to do extra patrols of the neighborhood. Frequency of the randomized, four-hour patrol periods are decided based on funds. Our ENP program has been in place since December 2018; it helps to keep our neighborhood safe and crime low. 

Benefits for participating households include: 

  • Police presence and yard signs will signal that Lakewood Hills is not a target
  • Crime Watch Board has direct access to ENP police officer to report suspicious behavior or criminal activity
  • Home checks for all participating households when out of town by ENP police officer

By now, yard signs, solar powered lights and tax letters have all been distributed for 2021. If you still need one of these items (solar powered lights are just to the Supporters $400+), please contact CrimeWatch@LakewoodHills.org or reply to this email. If you are not yet a member, please sign up today on www.lakewoodhills.org/crime-watch

Instagram Volunteer Opportunity

Follow us on our new Instagram account @LakewoodHillsDallas. We are looking for an individual to manage the account and post relevant news and activity. So if you love social media and want to get involved, please let us know!

Crime Watch Reminders

Process for Requesting Home Checks While Away

If you are a Crime Watch Member, our ENP officers will check on your home when you're out of town. When you'd like a home check, please email CrimeWatch@LakewoodHills.org with the dates you're going to be away, your address, and any other brief information you deem relevant (e.g., if they should expect anyone there pet sitting). All information provided will of course stay private between our ENP officers and the Crime Watch Board. You may email us as far in advance as you like. Please provide at least 4 days notice as we update the Crime Watch calendar on Sundays and Wednesdays.   

Tips to Prevent Crime

(Based on both feedback from our officers and the Crime Watch Board) 

  • Protect yourself and your loved ones by keeping your doors locked. This includes doors to your house, garage, gates and cars. Most "break-ins" that happen in our neighborhood are because things are left unlocked.
  • Don't leave garage doors open or cars running in the street or driveway, even for a minute. 
  • Don't announce any new purchases by leaving boxes out on the curb during bulk trash week. Break them down and put them in the bins. 
  • Report all security issues to 911 (our patrol officer will be notified immediately if during a shift). After calling 911, e-mail CrimeWatch@LakewoodHills.org. We have a direct line to our ENP officers and will let them know of all incidents, but all incidents (urgent and non, as prioritized by 911) must be reported through a 911 call. You may also report crimes online here.
  • Check your back alleys. Make sure that your alleys are clean from debris and overhanging or overgrown trees and are well-lit. Don't create easy hiding spots. The patrol officers drive through the back alleys to do their checks, so make sure the path is clear for them.
