Weekly update

Have you marked your calendars to attend our upcoming meeting at City Church Tharpe Street on October 28 at 6:30 pm?  go ahead and do that now, I will wait for you…..

Ok, glad that is done.  While you eagerly anticipate our meeting, we have some local things going on that might interest you.  This Saturday (October 18) from 8 am – 2pm is the City’s biannual Cash for Trash program.  City residential utility customers may bring trash items too large to fit into the 96 gallon garbage container (see, this blog is educational too…who knew our trash cans were 96 gallons?!  :)).  Bring your items to the Solid Waste Services facility for proper disposal.  As a thank you, YOU get rid of your trash AND the City will credit you $5 on your utility bill.  So, load up your item(s) and a copy of your City utility bill and head on over to Solid Waste Services.  You can visit as many times as you would like on Saturday morning, but you are only allowed one credit per utility bill.

Where is the Solid Waste Facility?  Glad you were wondering.  It is at 2727 Municipal Way (just off West Pensacola Street near the Messer Field softball complex).  What can you bring?

  • Old furniture
  • Large and small household appliances
  • Large toys
  • Tires (limit 4 per customer)
  • Household hazardous waste
  • Electronic items (including all computer parts)

Household garbage, construction/demolition debris and yard waste will not be accepted.  For more information, call Your Own Utilities at 891.4968 or visit Talgov.com/YOU.


Nothing says fall like cooler weather, football and the annual pumpkin patch at Gray Memorial United Methodist Church!  Be sure to visit our neighbors and get a pumpkin or two to celebrate the season.  Volunteers are always friendly and the selection is great.  Come on over for a great family photo opportunity and celebrate the season.

Hope to see you out walking the neighborhood and enjoying our beautiful weather.  Don’t forget, our quarterly meeting on October 28th at 6:30 pm.  Bring a friend.  Come meet your neighbors.  🙂  Have a great weekend!


Forest Heights Baptist Church has a new name!

City Church Tallahassee

Forest Heights Baptist Church was founded in 1955.  Recently they have joined with City Church to become City Church Tharpe Street.  The two congregations are excited to come together as one church with their vision to be “for the Gospel and for the City.”

The new City Church Tharpe Street campus at 1200 W. Tharpe Street will hold services at 11:00 AM on Sundays (with a children’s service for preschoolers and elementary school students at the same time).  City Church also hold Sunday morning services at Leon High School.  City Church’s youth group for middle and high schoolers will meet at the new Tharpe Street Campus on Wednesday from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
You can visit CityChurchTallahassee.com for more information or contact the church at hello@citychurchtallahassee.com or 850.347.4100.
The Grand Opening of City Church Tharpe Street is set for Sunday, October 12 at 11:00 AM.
 On Sunday, October 26, the church is holding “Godby Day” as many of the sports teams and faculty at the school, which has a long standing partnership with City Church, will be attending.
We look forward to a continuing our wonderful relationship with our neighborhood church and wish them all the best with this new merger!

Welcome to the new and improved FHHHNA website!

Being a volunteer is great!  You get asked to do lots of things that may not be your strongest skill, but it forces you to reach outside your comfort zone to make it happen.  As much as I love technology, web design is NOT my thing.  But thanks to Web Design for Dummies (also known as WordPress), voila, here is a functioning website!

So, after a very long wait, we are very pleased to present the new user friendly website for our Neighborhood Association.  We are now able to make edits as needed, post new content ourselves, and find news ways to get confused in cyberspace.  Please be sure to poke around and give us your honest feedback.  If you are a neighbor looking to help out and have mad computer skills, please be sure to email us at fhhhna@gmail.com and volunteer those much needed skills to help us out.  I think there might be a calendar somewhere on this site, but I couldn’t find it yet, so make a note that our next meeting is October 28th at City Church Tharpe Street from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm.  We sure hope to see you there!  🙂
