July 26, 2019 Dear FHHD Resident: Forty years ago, a group of residents, with genuine wisdom and foresight, succeeded in deeming this neighborhood historical. Now, in what seems like a proverbial flash forward, here we are about to celebrate the centennial of our neighborhood, both this year and next! At this point, preparations for the big event include:
We trust that all residents will take pride in these events and help spiff up the neighborhood. Although some of our streets are crumbling and unsightly, Dearborn has no plan to improve these areas for the centennial; so it is incumbent upon us to improve what we can on our own properties!
Our next neighborhood meeting will take place on September 24, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at DuVall Elementary School. The featured speaker is Joe Oldenburg who chaired the committee that gained the historic designation for this neighborhood. He also authored the definitive article on the neighborhood’s history that is available on our website. His PowerPoint presentation surely will prove fascinating for anyone who lives here. We hope the meeting will be packed with interested residents, ready and eager to be involved in the centennial. Whether you can spare a cash donation or help out for as little as an hour or two of service, we trust you will want to be part of this extraordinary time in our neighborhood’s fascinating-and-ongoing unique history. Sign-up sheets will be provided at the meeting for individual committees’ tasks.
We live in a unique neighborhood with interesting historical houses and good neighbors. Come join us. You’ll be glad you did. Clearly, we can make good use of your insights, talents, skills and networks. Everything we do as a neighborhood organization is funded by our intermittent home tours. The last one was in 2015. Since then, we have funded our bike parades, Easter egg hunts, plantings in the Military median strips, pocket-park maintenance, meet-your-neighbor events, Halloween contests, and Santa visits from the proceeds of four years ago. The occasional home tour is our only fundraiser; so please help us make this one successful!
In order to communicate efficiently with as many FHHD residents as possible about updates and developments as well as opportunities to be involved, please share your current email address with Kathy Zubok at Your email address will not be used for any purpose other than communicating with you regarding neighborhood-specific events. We hope to reach more neighbors, more efficiently. Also, we have already received some interesting information regarding this neighborhood and would like to be able to share these items electronically with you.
Thank you for your ongoing interest and support!
Kathy Zubok, President FHHD
