Firemen’s Appreciation Potluck and Fundraiser

Parkview Neighborhood Association invites you:

Please come for an outdoor potluck dinner and fun evening fundraiser to show appreciation for our local Carrollton Avenue firehouse! October 4, 2015, Sunday!

The Saints play Dallas at 7:30 pm, and we will have the game on outside at 962 N. Carrollton Avenue. This is the house adjacent to the firehouse, on Carrollton Ave, home of Wesley and Levi.

Bring an outdoor chair, a dish to pass, and any beer or wine you may want. The Parkview Neighborhood Assocation will be cooking up a huge pot of Jambalaya, thanks to the volunteer chef abilities of PNA board member Stan Richard and his brother-in-law, Conrad. We will also have water and soft drinks available, as well as plates, napkins, etc. Please bring a serving utensil if your dish to pass requires it.

GAME STARTS AT 7:30 pm, so come by for 7 pm, until the end of the game!

Last year we raised funds to help buy the firehouse a new grill – this year lets raise some funds to get grocery gift cards for the firehouse, to put some burgers on that grill!

Lets raise some donations for our much appreciated firemen, watch the game, and hang out with your friends, neighbors, and Parkview members!

See you there!

Neighbors warn of aggressive gators in Bayou St. John

From WWLTV.com on Sept. 23, 2015:
NEW ORLEANS — People living in Mid-City are posting warnings about aggressive alligators in Bayou St. John. Residents tell Eyewitness News they’ve seen several in the body of water in recent weeks.

There have been snapshot after snapshot capturing alligators lurking in Bayou St. John, including a video taken by Dez Bennet of a gator floating by a green kayak.

“When we were parking, some lady said they’ve been seeing alligators down here. So we just went this way and wound up seeing one too,” said kayaker Joshua Borges.

Borges and Hailey Laurent spent part of their Wednesday on the water, but after hearing about gators decided not to take a dip. In recent weeks, there have been reports of at least three gators in the area.

“If I saw a big one, I’d probably be out right now,” Laurent said.

Vincent Booth lives on Bayou St. John, and he told Eyewitness News by phone that in the last month he’s seen a gator trail his dog twice while it swam in the bayou.

Booth said he’s called the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to report the aggressive gator, but he was told to call a trapper.

He even posted a warning online to fellow Faubourg St. John residents, warning them to watch their pets. That’s something wildlife experts also recommend.

“Keep themselves and their pets out of a canal where there is an alligator. Do not feed the alligators. Do not go near the alligators. They’re very dangerous,” said Terry Friedman, a nuisance wildlife control operator. “If they’re hungry, they will attack you.”

Jed Fisher has lived in the neighborhood for nearly a decade now.

“This is the first I’ve heard of it. I’ve yet to see one. I’ve been here pretty much three or four times a week forever,” he said.

The bayou is his dogs’ favorite place to swim. Now Fisher says he’ll be keeping a closer eye on both red and chili.

“Obviously, I’ll look and make sure the area is safe. I won’t want to put my dogs in harm’s way,” he said.

A spokesman for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says licensed trappers are called into deal with nuisance complaints.

In the last two years, the department says it’s seen an increase in gator nuisance calls in both Orleans and Jefferson parishes.

End of Summer update from Parkview

Hi neighbors!
Hope your summer is going well and you are managing to find cool moments in all this heat!
Parkview has been moving forward on a few tasks during the summer.  We now have a lovely banner in the kiosk at City Park/Carrollton/Moss off of the bike path.  This banner tells a little of the history of our area, has some photos of people enjoying the bayou, and shares how to learn more.
The mosquito abatement crew came through recently and ticketed, then removed, all left-behind kayaks and boats.  Thanks guys!  This helps keep the mosquitos down, a bit!
Beat up street signs in our area are being replaced, at last.  Some of you may recall how the Harding Drive and Delgado signs, and the Harding Drive at Saint John Court signs were almost completely covered with green moss — well, they have been replaced.   Also replaced are a few street signs that have been missing for a while.  THAT’S GREAT!
The old street lights are being upgraded to energy efficient LED light bulbs.  Crews have already started changing out the bulbs on the exterior streets of our neighborhood (Carrollton, Moss, Orleans) and you will see the crews working on the interior streets soon.
Our NOPD Quality of Life officers will be setting up a neighbor meeting this fall to lean about problems with noise, trash, and events on and near the Magnolia Bridge.  Some concerned neighbors requested that our Quality of Life officers meet with neighbors to let us know about enforcement of late night rules for this area of our neighborhood.  Keep an eye on our website, www.parkviewneighborhoodassociation.org, to find out when this meeting will be held.
 
We will soon be hosting our annual Firemen Appreciation Fundraiser Saints Game and Potluck —- October 4th. Will keep you posted as we plan this event.
The National Night Out Against Crime will be held on Tuesday, October 13th.  Parkview will host a neighborhood potluck and hotdog cookout on the Jack Bartlett Triangle park (at Harding and Delgado).  If you would like to help us set up, host, or clean up this event, please email Bob Holloway at bobhway@cox.net.
Our next general membership meeting will be held at Cabrini’s cafeteria, 1400 Moss Street, Tuesday September 15 6:30-8 pm.  See you there!
If you have not yet paid your 2015 membership dues, please take a moment now and send in your payment.  Memberships are $15 per year for individuals, and $25 per year for businesses or families.  Send your name, address, email address and payment to:  Parkview Neighborhood Association, PO BOX 791577, New Orleans, LA 70179.
Enjoy the end of this beautiful summer!
