Some NMIA neighborhood activities include: - Sponsor and volunteer in park cleanup projects at Gompers Park. - Help preserve and maintain the nature trails, lagoon, and wetlands in the park. - Sponsor one boys and one girls baseball teams in association with the Gompers Park Athletic Association. - Help fund Gompers Park for the children's Easter, Halloween, and Christmas parties. - Sponsor a 4th of July Parade for the community. - Provide financial assistance to the Garden Club to help beautify North Mayfair. - Work closely with our alderman and her staff on issues affecting our community. - Maintain a vigilance regarding zoning changes, property use and new developments to protect property values and the character of the neighborhood. - Work closely with other civic organizations to stay informed on local issues.

Thank you North Mayfair! In just two hours this morning you donated about $1500 worth of groceries - and cash donations to Northwest Church of Christ food pantry are still coming in.

Minister Patrick Odum was greatly touched by our gifts. This week, food at the pantry was tight and he worried that bags for the more than 70 local families who use the pantry would be light. Our brimming pickup truck fare from your generous homes means abundant food for many for several weeks.

Today the wagons, strollers, cars and SUVs with food and smiling people showing up in the rain were an act of deep friendship and neighborliness, giving folks hope during a very tough time.

This is truly Thanksgiving.

You can make a cash donation to the food pantry via our PayPal site: www.paypal.me/NMIA. 100% of your donation will go to the pantry and your donation is fully tax deductible.

IMMORTAL FAVORITES
We introduce this category to recognize great places that won previously and remain standouts. They may repeat themes or embellish them, but they’re still spectacular.

ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF THE 3RD ANNUAL NORTH MAYFAIR HOUSE DECORATING CONTEST!

FIRST PLACE
4036 W. Argyle – Headless Horseman Horror
This front yard has many frightening fears packed into a small space – including the horseman, a carriage and more.

5100 N. Kostner - Sk-HELL-eton House
This previous winner switched up the madness. The enormous skeleton oversees many other bone-a-fide scary fleshless beings.

SECOND PLACE
5071 N. Kimberly - JAWS of the Dead
Don’t go in the water! This developed daily with something new added each day. A ship, a pirate, a mast, a blue tarp ocean, sharks and more. Yikes!

5044 N. Kedvale - Body A-parts
Many heads and extremities lost their bodies here. Careful. The windmill is eerie and a winged dragon oversees the mayhem.

THIRD PLACE
5121 N. Kolmar - Dead Wedding
This charmingly dead couple is surrounded by a party of ghouls celebrating their eternal love. Eek!

4942 N. Kostner – The Reapers Return
So many reapers. So little time. Don’t miss this lighting, sound and spooky concoction.

Very scary at night when it comes to life with motion and sound! Don’t miss one of our favorite houses - 4942 Kostner.

Think of these volunteers the next time you take a walk through our beautiful parks! ❤️

A huge thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who came out early on a chilly, but gorgeous, Saturday morning for our Pitch In for the Parks event. We had about 45 fabulous volunteers of all ages who worked diligently mulching trees in North Gompers and cleaning up trash in both North and South Gompers. Thanks to all of you, our park looks fantastic!

Thank you for showing Gompers some love!
