Independence Day Celebration Planned

We need volunteers! Email me at katestickel@yahoo.com to help us make this event happen.
 
We need volunteers to set up & start the parade, set up at the field, hand out water ice/pretzels, help with games, and supervise our cards for the troops.
 
The parade will leave Bon Air Fire Company at 9:30 am with (tentatively) a Police & Fire Escort.
 
Once we get to Hilltop/Steel Field we will be observing the holiday, playing some games, writing cards to the troops, and enjoying Water Ice and Pretzels (thanks to the Hilltop Little League!)

Food Truck Friday a Success!

Thanks to everyone who made our first Food Truck Friday a success! The Red Brick Pizza Truck SOLD OUT and had to stop taking orders sometime the day before they arrived.

They apologized for the issues with the order pickup system, but at least we all had amazing weather to enjoy!

Look for future events like this!

Sweatshirts Raise $820 For Our Parks!

WOW!

$820! 

That’s how much we raised by selling 61 sweatshirts as part of our latest campaign for our parks! 

Thank you to everyone who helped make this a success – I hope you love your sweatshirt!

Food Truck Fridays: Red Stone Pizza March 26

We’re excited to bring the Red Stone Pizza Truck to Hilltop on Friday, March 26. They offer amazing wood-fired pizza – and even have some gluten-free options.

How it will work: about one week prior to the event, we’ll provide a link for you to place your order, make payment, and select your pickup timeslot. To help with social distancing, we’ll be spacing pickups every 15 minutes and they will have your food bagged and ready when you arrive.

The truck will be parked at Hilltop/Steel Field (the lot off Steel Road.)

We ask that you place all orders as soon as possible to help us better prep, and they will only accept orders until 10:00am the day of your delivery.

Check out their awesome menu items here!

We’re always looking for new events for our members – if this works out we’ll set up more Food Truck Fridays! 

Hilltop Sweatshirts For Sale!

Our Civic Association is selling Hilltop Sweatshirts as part of a fundraiser for our parks!
 
These super-comfortable sweatshirts are only $35 – and the more we sell, the more landscaping we will be able to add to our parks.
 
We worked with the vendor to pick a not-too-heavy, comfortable sweatshirt that comes in youth and adult sizes! This is the Hanes Eco Blend – partially made from soft recycled materials – so it’s good for us AND the earth!
 
You can have the sweatshirt delivered directly to you for a small fee, or pick it up on Kate Stickel’s porch (Concord Ave) once they are in, for free!
 
The deadline to order is March 9 – don’t miss out!
 
 
Raising funds to put benches and landscaping in our parks! Fundraiser - unisex shirt design - front

Here’s the schedule of our meetings for 2021 – please consider joining us to learn more about what is happening in our neighborhoods!

Trick-Or-Treating Guidance

Trick or Treating Guidance from our Hilltop Civic Association
  • Plan for Trick-or-Treating on October 31 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • The CDC recommends everyone Trick -or-Treating wear a CDC-compliant mask.
  • It is not safe to wear a costume mask OVER a protective mask, so plan accordingly.
  • Maintain six feet of social distancing from people outside your social circle AT ALL TIMES.

If you plan to hand out goodies during Trick-or-Treating:
  • Place a table 8-10 feet from the end of your driveway, or a similar spot outside the home. Decorations are encouraged!
  • Wash your hands according to CDC guidelines before touching goodies.
  • Place goodies (individually-wrapped candies or small bags) spread out across the table so that one item can be grabbed without touching the other items.
  • Encourage Trick-or-Treaters to come up to the table and not past it.
  • Please leave your lights on to signal you are welcoming Trick-Or-Treaters. Turn your lights off once you are no longer giving away goodies.


If you plan to go Trick-Or-Treating:
  • Take turns approaching tables one person at a time, and wait on the sidewalk while others select their treat.
  • Only touch one treat and take the first one you touch, unless the homeowner indicates that it is OK to take more than 1.
  • Only go to houses with a table in the driveway or near the front porch.
  • Walk on the grass if necessary to maintain social distancing from other groups.
  • Please walk on the right side of the street as much as possible.
