HOA Sponsors Food Truck Nights
Pressed Artisan will be at 9020 Silver Oak (between 90th and 91st) on Tuesday evening, September 20th from 5:30-7:30 PM.
Paco's Tacos will be on Chateau Circle (across from Kloefkorn) on Friday evening, September 30th.
Vintage Heights HOA sponsored several food truck appearances in the neighborhood this Summer and Fall after receiving a lot requests from residents again in the past year. A special thank you to Klein's Funnel Cakes, who were here in August.
Movie @ Mendoza Sat. Sept 24th- The Goonies
Come out and join us for a free movie at Mendoza Park on Saturday September 24th to watch The Goonies! We plan to have "Goonies" trivia at 7pm, with prizes, and we will start the movie at 7:30 PM at Sundown. Bring a blanket, chair, snacks and your favorite beverage and come out and enjoy. No Husker game that day so you won't be missing anything or having your typical Saturday cry.
We had more success in using an electronic sign-up last year with neighborhood clean-up rather than simply setting aside a few hours on a Saturday. So again, rather than having an organized date and time we are simply asking neighbors to pick up while out on walks. If you need gloves, grabbers or bags we are happy to provide them. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can accommodate you. We will have a "go sign-up" available soon on our website and social media if you want to choose a specific area to volunteer and pick up.
If you have never participated in a Spring or Fall clean-up in Vintage Heights then now is your chance to jump in. We welcome the whole family to participate and this is a great way to teach the kids about community involvement and taking care of our neighborhood. We encourage people to clean up around the perimeter of the neighborhood, up and down the bike trail and around Mendoza Park.
This is also a great experience for your kids if they need volunteer hours for a club or organization, and for high schoolers who need volunteer hours for a class. The HOA is happy to sign off on those hours for you!
Vintage Trio Driveway Concert in August!
A great night was had by all who attended the driveway concert of the Vintage Trio at the corner of 88th and Cuthills on August 6th. It was a warm evening, but the music was great and the crowd kept cool with the Margarita Man machine on hand. Special thanks to the Trio for playing for us!
July 4th Celebration returns to Vintage Heights!
After a long two years of absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the July 4th Celebration finally returned to Vintage Heights this year! The kid's bike parade was full on with traffic enforcement assistance by LPD and with the LFR providing an escort truck to lead the way. The carnival down at Mendoza drew a big crowd to enjoy games, get prizes, play in the bounce houses, get some face painting, take a balloon animal, and participate in the free picnic.
"Vintage Frights" in October!
Who has the best Trick-or-Treat neighborhood in Lincoln? We do!
Halloween brings out kids from our neighborhood and across Lincoln to celebrate Halloween. Once again, Vintage Heights transforms in October to "Vintage Frights" as everyone gets into the Halloween spirit. Lights will be going up, and neighbors are putting up their decor to make this the best neighborhood Halloween ever!
We will be having our annual Halloween Decorating Contest so start putting out your lights, spider webs and graveyards. There will be three winning houses again this year for the best of the best.
Winners will receive a $50 gift card to one of our neighborhood restaurants. You can start putting up your decorations anytime. Winners will be announced October 30th allowing plenty of time for bragging rights on Halloween.
"Vintage Holidays" coming this December.
December really is the most magical month in Vintage Heights as the neighborhood transforms into "Vintage Holidays". What a great activity to drive around with your hot cocoa and enjoy the seasonal lights and decorations. We hold an annual lights contest with three houses taking the prizes and bragging rights. Gift cards go to the winners before New Years!
Back by popular demand, we will feature lights at the entrance to 88th and Old Cheney as we have electrics available to us at that entrance only.
Kid Entrepreneur Day
The kids came out in force on the morning of June 11th to show their entrepreneurial spirit. Booths popped up all over the neighborhood with drinks, popsicles, baked goods, art, bracelets, fortunes and jokes for sale. The kids' sales coincided with the neighborhood garage sale. Fun was had by all, and perhaps a little money was even made after some parental expenses, of course. We would like to have this as a yearly event so please come out and support these hard working young people next year.
Summer Garage Sales
Garage Sales were held in the traditional second week of June. Neighbors reported to us that their sales went pretty well. The weather helped this year and a lot of folks were ready to get out of the house and make some purchases. The traffic looked pretty good.
