The HHNA Board is excited to announce the winning logo from our logo design contest, submitted by local Chamblee designer Lizz Norman. We appreciate the bright, colorful design, the incorporation of our neighborhood’s hills, and how the two houses cleverly evoke the “HH” in Huntley Hills. Ultimately, the Board selected this logo because we feel it best reflects our mission statement and community.
We’re confident that this modern, professional logo will support our efforts to engage with local businesses, government, neighboring communities, and others for the benefit of Huntley Hills.
Be on the lookout for a feature on contest winner Lizz Norman and her work, which we will be posting on our website in the near future.
Lastly, a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the contest and to everyone who supports the neighborhood association! Your engagement is what makes our work possible.
These photos were taken yesterday morning when the HHNA sponsored a Meet ‘N Greet appreciation breakfast for the folks in public works- well-timed considering how miserable the weather has been for anyone working outdoors this week. Didn’t cost much, didn’t take much time or effort, but the guys were exceedingly grateful to be recognized for their role in making our little city a great place to live and work.
Maybe we can do this more often for others who serve us, you think?
Great news for the many dog-walkers (and non-dog walkers) in the neighborhood! HHNA sponsored six new dog waste stations for Huntley Hills, which have been installed on Forrestal, Commodore Court, Longview near Ellwyn, in the empty corner lot on Ensign and in the triangle at the corner of Longview and N. Shallowford. If you are a dog-walker, please take advantage of these stations to help keep Huntley Hills clean and beautiful. Thank you to Meghan Harris, HHNA Beautification Chair, for taking the lead on this project and thank you to the city public works department for installing the stations.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Halloween decorating contest this year. Your ghoulish and creepy contributions helped to transform our neighborhood into a place that could rival most Hollywood creations! Thanks to everyone that voted as well. All of the races were close and the competition for Best Overall was fierce. In the end the top 8 spots were separated by a margin of only 5 votes!
The winners for the 2015 Halloween Decorating Contest are…
- Best Inflatable: The Armstrong Family at 2201 Seaman Circle
- Best Scarecrow: The Harris/Tracy Family at 1968 Plantation Lane
- Best Overall: The Germany and Elrod Families at 3982 McDaniel Street
Congratulations to all of the winners!
Now it is time to start planning for the Holiday Decorating Contest, if it ever stops raining long enough to get Halloween put up! This year the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is one of the shortest possible so be sure to plan accordingly.
Thank you again to all of the participants, decorators and voters. You all helped to make our neighbor the BEST place to live.
Are you a graphic designer or artist? We want YOUR help to create a logo for the neighborhood association! The contest is open to everyone both in and outside Huntley Hills.
We’re looking for a visual representation of our new mission statement that will support our efforts to engage with local businesses, government, neighboring communities, and others for the benefit of Huntley Hills. We know there are many talented, creative neighbors and friends of Huntley Hills out there and can’t wait to see the designs you come up with!
This year’s Huntley Hills Herald is fresh off the press and has been mailed out to the neighborhood. You can also take a look at the electronic version here. Thanks to everyone who contributed content and special thanks to our Newsletter Chair Ann Tamli for coordinating the effort!
Check out this fun video of the neighborhood block party on Captain Drive, created by HHNA board member Jim Lyle.
HHNA Community Affairs Chair Brian Ray has been doing an amazing job keeping us updated on the development going on around Chamblee.
