Welcome Home
In 2011, faced with a dilapidated and increasingly dangerous play structure at Willamette Manor city park, the WKNA took on the project to replace it. With the Keizer Parks Foundation, a private non-profit, WKNA lobbied the Parks Advisory Board and City Council to place the play structure first on their priority funding list. With a generous donation from Highway Fuel Company, it worked. Dedication and celebration of the structure  was Tuesday, June 25, 2014 .

It's Been a Great Year

Fallen LeavesThe end of each calendar year is a special time for all of us. With the changing of the seasons comes a flurry of activities centered on family, faith, and community. We've just completed another election campaign, we have put up or brought in our summer recreation toys and are breaking out our winter gear, our trusty rakes (or blowers, if one is so inclined) are at the ready, and, of course, we're drawing up our plans for gatherings to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Bill LawyerOur final meeting of 2014  will be Thursday, 13 November 2014 at the Keizer Civic Center. Doors open around 6:30 pm, with the meeting under way by 7:00 pm. Our featured guest will be Keizer's director of Public Works, Bill Lawyer, himself a resident of West Keizer. With the Chemawa Road project finally nearing completion, he will bring us up to date on what is in store for us in 2015. Public works, by the way, include roadways, street lighting, street signage, stormwater, sewer, drinking water, and, of course, parks.

Wallace House ParkSpeaking of parks, the eradication of homeless camps and cleanup of Wallace House Park will be high on the list of matters to discuss with Keizer Police Lieutenant Andrew Copeland and Marion County Parole and Probation Officer Eric Bandonis as they report on law enforcement and public safety issues. All three guests will be happy to field questions and address any concerns members have regarding the well-being of our neighborhood.

Since this will be the last general meeting of the year, please keep in mind that our next meeting will be January 8, 2015, at which we will hold elections for the WKNA board. The board consists of President, Vice-President, Secretary and four director positions. Please consider becoming more involved in your neighborhood and community and mark your calendar for this date. More information to follow in January.

The WKNA meets on the second Thursday of each month; it does not schedule meetings for the months of June, July, August or December. We meet at the Keizer Civic Center, 930 Chemawa Rd. NE. Meetings generally run from 7:00-9:00pm. The board of directors regularly meets on the first Thursday of each month, the week before the general meeting. Residents of West Keizer are welcome to attend. Please contact a member of the board for meeting time and location.
