Friday and Saturday May 17-18, 2013 with Thursday evening (5/16) for Neighborhood Only preview.

BHA will advertise the sale, provide a list of sale sites to potential buyers, and place signs on street corners pointing in your direction. Home owners are responsible for any signs they wish to place on their own property.
Clean out those garages, attics, basements, etc.  One man’s trash is another’s treasure. The more “sale sites” the better.

Interested in participating? Contact:
Bruce Gregg   816-763-6476                           
(You must call to be on the pass out list and to have street corner signs pointing to your location.)

St. Catherine’s Church will be having a garage sale on this same weekend.  Stop by.

Additionally, Big Brothers Big Sisters will come through the neighborhood to pick up items you have left over or want to put out for them on the Monday following the Garage Sale, 5/20/13.  Please see their web site ( (look under “Donate Used Clothing”) for the types of items they will pick up.  There are some limitations.  Place your donation – visible from the street – on your curb, driveway or front steps by 7 a.m.  Label bags or boxes with BBBS.                 

Its that time of the year again, everyone should have received their annual statement from the HOA. Please remember to pay your dues by March to avoid penalties.
As we count down to the Block Party, excitement is building and the momentum is full speed.  We have several donations of food and the vendor row is quickly filling up, just a few more spots till full.  Community partners, which we are calling "Eventeneers" are responding for their participation and it is rounding out to be a fun filled day.  All we need now is to finalize the details and make it happen.  If you are willing to volunteer the day of or the night before please let me know.  We need all hands on deck to pull this off.  We need creative types to help assemble our entry way on site, at Grace Point and helpers for our stage.  This same person can also help with facepainting. We need traffic directors to let people know where to park as well as monitors for the games and to keep everyone safe and playing nicely.  We need servers for the food table, a couple of volunteers to man the information booth and  people to relieve others that start with the morning shift or wrap up.  Most importantly we need a solid clean up crew at the end, to help return Grace Point into the beautiful church it was before we came on site.  The need is also to have several men, young or mature, unload chairs the morning before.  If you are willing to help the day of, please be at Grace Point Baptist church at 8:00 am, we have a lot to do to be ready for our guest/the neighborhood by 10:30 am.   Feel free to contact me with any questions via phone or here.  816-536-4549.

Oh lastly, please continue to talk it up to your neighbors, bring a friend, become the captain of your block and tell everyone to come, we'll have plenty of food and fun.  We will have drawings, give great gifts away and make wonderful memories.  

The first planning meeting for the upcoming BLOCK PARTY scheduled for Saturday, October 13th, will be this SUNDAY JULY 15th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at Grace Point Church right behind the subdivision. If you are interesting in volunteering please come willing to work and sign up on a committee to make this fun day happen and be successful. 
Birchwood Hills will be putting on a neighborhood block party on Oct. 13th from 10:30 to 3:00.  Please save the date and plan to attend to get to know your fellow neighbors and enjoy a wonderful time.  If you are interested in helping to plan the party please contact us using the link on the left.
It is again time for the Birchwood Homes Association's annual garage sale.  It will be held on Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th.  BHA will place general signs throughout our neighborhood.  Residents are responsible for any signs they may wish to place on their own property. 

We have made arrangements for the Big Brothers Big Sisters charity to pick up items from those Birchwood residents holding a garage sale and wishing to donate things that did not sell.  You can check what items they will accept by looking on their web site at  Click on Donate Used Clothing on the upper right side of their page.  They also list a phone number you can call if you have a specific question.  Items need to be placed in boxes or large bags marked “BBBS” and placed in the front of your house or curb in full view from the street.  They do not pick up trash items. 

Annual statements have been mailed and everyone should be receiving them this week.  Our home owners are due on March 1, 2012 and are delinquent as of that date.  
We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

Our architectural committee has spent countless hours assessing and documenting the condition of our statuary and bases.  We have received bids for the repairs, and we expect to negotiate a contract for the work in the near future.  Since the repair work will be extensive, the tentative plan is to have the work performed in either two or three phases.  Our statuary not only adds beauty to our neighborhood, but also enhances property values.  The homeowner dues provide the means to undertake costly projects such as this.
