As you settle into your new home, please know that your Vickery Place Neighborhood Association (VPNA) is here to help. If you need recommendations for restaurants, repairmen, or information about schools, feel free to contact the VPNA board at [email protected]
Living in this neighborhood automatically makes you a member of the Vickery Place Neighborhood Association. There are no mandatory fees or dues. We do ask for your help to keep our neighborhood safe and respect those families that live around you.
We invite you to attend our neighborhood meetings and scheduled events. We encourage and welcome participation and appreciate any personal skills that will enhance the Association’s service to the community. We maintain our calendar on our website, www.vickeryplace.com. We also share events on Instagram and Facebook.
Be sure to join our Facebook Group to easily communicate with your neighbors.
Please consider volunteering your time and talents by becoming a member of a committee, becoming a Board Member or by supporting the Association’s events and fundraisers. A couple of our goals are to give back to our community and preserve the area values.
Learn more about volunteering! Check the Website and Newsletter for the Committees. Contact us at: [email protected] to get started.
