Come along on a vicarious travel adventure to Africa with Sergio Yanes, the guest speaker at AHNA’s membership meeting on Tuesday February 17 at the Fort Worth Firefighters Hall, 3855 Tulsa Way. Sergio will take us along on his recent once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Serengeti in Tanzania and a grueling ascent and descent of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak in Africa and one of seven summits.
Sergio started training for his dream hike six months ago; it paid off because he says the hardest part of the long climb up to 19,341 feet and back down again was lack of sleep and sore feet.
Sergio photographed not only his Kilimanjaro trek, but also the wildlife the Serengeti is famous for, including a few months old baby elephant. Sergio’s incredible stories and engaging photographs are sure to tempt you to start planning your own safari. This meeting is open to everyone.

On November 4, 2014, Fort Worth citizens will go to the polls to vote, among other things, on three user taxes proposed by the Fort Worth City Council to be used to help finance a proposed 14,000-seat multipurpose arena at the Will Rogers Complex, directly to the east of Arlington Heights.
In a conceptual site plan presented to the City Council on August 5, 2014 the arena is located on the southeast corner of Harley and Montgomery Streets, facing north on Gendy Street, which is proposed to become a linear pedestrian mall.
AHNA is gathering as much information as they can about the project. We are interested in hearing from property owners who live near Montgomery Street. If you haven’t already signed up, please contact email@example.com to get on the list. Please include your property address.
The proposed arena and all of its ramifications on Arlington Heights will be the focus of AHNA’s membership meeting on Tuesday October 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Fort Worth Firefighters Hall, 3855 Tulsa Way at Crestline Road.
The September/October 2014 AHNA newsletter has more information about the proposed arena and its financing. For more details, here are links to the City Council presentations and Star Telegram stories.
