It’s that time again to beautify our corners

Residents with corner urns will have their annual opportunity to dress up the neighborhood at WPHA’s expense.

A volunteer will be delivering flowers in May for those requesting them for their urns. If you are doing your own planting and don’t want us to provide flowers, please contact Alison Baker at or 816-822-2006. You also can contact her if you have a corner stone post without an urn and would like WPHA to install one.

Also, WPHA is seeking a Beautification Committee Chair to coordinate with contractors to oversee maintenance for urns and common spaces. The job requires no actual planting and can be shared by more than one person. If interested in volunteering, please contact Ms. Baker.

With the arrival of spring, WPHA will resume its Home of the Month award, which recognizes members who enhance the beauty of their homes and yards. Winners receive a story in the newsletter, a Home of the Month sign in their yard and a $50 gift certificate from the Soil Service.

Anyone wishing to nominate a WPHA member for this award should send an email to
