Please join your neighbors for an AHNA-sponsored summer social on July 21, 2015, 6:30 PM-8:30 PM. The fun happens at the Fort Worth Firefighters Hall, 3855 Tulsa Way, Fort Worth, 76107.
Anyone who came to last year’s AHNA Summer Social will know to come early before the scrumptious meats by master griller Jerry Bodiford of Tulsa Way disappear. This year Jerry is cooking up more meat and is adding shrimp to the menu, too. For drinks, AHNA will serveup whatever was left over from the fire station birthday party. Bring a side and your own beverages, including the adult kind. It’s all about getting to know the people who live in the neighborhood and partying with them, too.
Please bring a neighbor!
Please join in the ongoing discussions about the future development of Montgomery Street. On Thursday, July 23, 6:30 pm, attend a forum presented by the City of Fort Worth to address plans for how the street from I30 to Camp Bowie will be shaped in the next couple of years.

Neighborhood block parties are great events for bringing residents of a block together and introducing the wider neighborhood to the block. If you’re planning a party, be sure to follow a few rules provided by the city:
- Street parties fall under the “Neighborhood Events & Parades” category as defined by the city’s Public Events Department. This category is defined as outdoor gatherings or celebrations with less than 500 attendees at any one time on a residential street that are sponsored by a Neighborhood Association or by persons living on the block that require the use, occupation or full or partial closure of a street, sidewalk or public right of way.
- Block parties that involve a street closure are required to file an Outdoor Events Application from the City of Fort Worth Office of Outdoor Events.
- At least 50% plus one (1) of the residents on the street affected by the street party must sign the petition, which is included in the Outdoor Events Application.
- The person submitting the application must live on the block of the street that is requested to be closed, and the application should be submitted at least 15 days prior to the event.
- The application, including the petition, should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed, faxed, or delivered in person to:
