Hey Olde Hillcrest! Interested in an opportunity to help others during these trying times? 💗

We are looking to organize groups of 5-6 families to team up and provide a meal for Guest House of Milwaukee. You would cook the meal at your home and we would help coordinate delivery to the Guest House, on a designated date. Ideally 1-2 families provide the main course, 1-2 provide sides, and another a dessert. This can be 100% socially distanced as you can do it all at home!

If you are interested, please comment below or email [email protected]. If you have a group of individuals or families you’d like to work with, that’s great! Otherwise you can volunteer individually and we will connect you with a group.

Thank you for considering!!

Hi everyone, just wanted to give a heads up that we will not be organizing an OHNA neighborhood wide rummage this summer. In the interest of safety, we are avoiding holding events that could draw a crowd. People should feel free to hold their own individual rummage sales as they see fit.

05/24/2020

Happy Memorial Day weekend Olde Hillcrest! 🇺🇸

Just a friendly reminder to make sure you are locking cars and windows at night. As temperatures rise, we typically see an increase in crime around vehicles being rummaged through and property/vehicles being stolen.

Enjoy the weekend & stay safe and healthy, everyone! ✌🏼💙😷

🌟Fun event tomorrow morning! 🌟

There is a car parade tomorrow morning at 10:00am to celebrate the Tosa East “We the People” (APPSE) team who won the state competition and will now be competing for nationals virtually, rather than heading to Washington DC this week 😢. So their coaches and families are trying to boost their spirits with a parade!! 🎉

Getting out along the parade route to cheer for them and/ or with a sign to cheer them on would be so appreciated!! There will be a banner hanging at Cracky Als and yard signs along the way.

The parade will start in the City Hall parking lot, head east on North Ave then south on 68th to Hart Park.

Join if you can to cheer on our incredible High Schoolers! 💕💕💕

Now Accepting Donations of PPE and Health Care Supplies for Staff, Patients and Visitors

Hello neighbors! An OHNA resident who is an ER doctor has reached out to ask if people are able/willing to donate masks or other personal protection equipment (PPE) for her and her colleagues. 😷👨🏻‍⚕️🧑🏼‍⚕️

HOW TO MAKE FACE MASK WITH FILTER POCKET AND ADJUSTABLE WIRE | SEWING TUTORIAL

Hello neighbors ❤️

We are so fortunate to live in a community where we have state of the art health care facilities and providers in our backyard.

Our healthcare providers now need our help. Many of you have probably seen the info posted about the shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment) for health care workers. It’s devastating.

Here’s how you can help at home-

Either donate unused PPE, or,

If you have a sewing machine and have any sewing skills, consider making some cloth masks for your healthcare friends or local hospital. Here’s a simple one with a pocket where they can insert some sort of filter and then wash the mask later:

**Froedtert is working on developing criteria for sewn masks that they can accept. Please refer here for updated info.**

Updated: You do NOT need to change your address on the 2020 Census. https://www.wauwatosa.net/Home/Components/News/News/1904/17

We had a 2020 Census question today from the Olde Hillcrest Neighborhood. Here’s a tip for those East Tosa neighbors in the 53213 zip code that defaults to “Milwaukee” on your form. The City of Wauwatosa replied:

Yes! Thank you for this question. We've contacted our regional representative for the Census, and here's what they said: When you get to the household address portion of your Census, confirm your address and include Wauwatosa as the city. It will be updated, and you can ensure that your address is counted in Wauwatosa.

Hello neighbors!

You will see this flyer in your front door over the next couple of days (if you haven’t already). Please know that your neighbors are here for you and willing to help however we (safely) can. ❤️

The outpouring of Helpers has been incredibly uplifting! We currently have 30+ neighbors who are ready and willing to help if any needs arise, so please do not hesitate to reach out! ❤️

If you’d like to be added to the Helper list, feel free to email Bryan or Kelly. ❤️

In an effort to help ensure that no family experiences food insecurity during this time, we set up a Little Free Food Pantry at Lincoln Elementary. It is by the main doors on Warren Ave.

It is intended to be shared with the greater community, so if anyone has a need, help yourself. 😊

Since being set up yesterday our generous community has quickly stocked it with food, paper goods, and books. ❤️ If you’d like to donate maybe check back in the coming days & weeks if the supply begins to decline.

Donate if you can, take what you need.

❤️Neighbor to Neighbor Connection ❤️

During these uncertain times, we want to do our best to care for our neighbors, especially our more vulnerable neighbors like the elderly and immunocompromised.

In order to do this, we are collecting a database of neighbors who are willing to be Helpers. Needs may range from grocery/medication pick up, to pet care, to just calling to check in on someone. If a need arises, all of the Helpers will get an email, and hopefully someone will be able/willing to meet the need.

Over the next couple of days, we will be distributing contact info for anyone to use if they have a need. There will be an email address as well as a phone number. We will also distribute a paper flyer to all houses in the neighborhood to ensure that even those who do not use the internet can have access to the Helpers.

If you are willing to be added to the Helper pool, please complete the Google form below. And of course, if you have a need, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you. 🙂

Thank you Bryan Ott for putting this together! ❤️

At its core, the mission is to connect neighbors with a need (whether or not they have been affected by COVID-19) to neighbors willing to assist. If you're willing to help please fill out this form and you'll be added to our database of volunteers who are willing to assist a neighbor with a need. Fr...

Hi! I hope this finds you all in good health. I wanted to see if anyone had information on trick-or-treat this year. I know given COVID-19 plans might still be in process, or even canceled. If there are plans for trick-or-treat, some guidelines to make it safe for all the little ones would be great as well. I was personally thinking of putting together individual zip locks that kids could grab without any sort of communal bowl. Thanks all!
Hello neighbors! Froedtert (and I'm sure other hospitals I just know Froedtert since my hubby works the) are looking for professional grade N95 masks. I'm sure there are a bunch of DIY'ers in the group that may have unopened construction masks at home that they wouldn't mind donating. Please consider donating if you're not using them! ❤️ https://www.froedtert.com/stories/new-unused-personal-protective-equipment-other-supplies-gratefully-accepted
November meeting of the OHNA Beer Nuts!! Such a great group - love my neighborhood!!

Does anyone know the James family? They dropped their monogrammed wedding blanket in front of our house. See the Rotten Raisler’s at the Halloween House or call me at +14147320162
Hello Neighbors, My daughter lost her AirPods somewhere on 72nd or Hillcrest this past Friday. Please let me know if you see them. Thank you so much!
The Tosa Farmers Market is kicking off its season this Saturday, May 25, with a special market preview on State Street. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. between Harwood and Wauwatosa Avenues. There will be music, ready-to-eat foods, plants and more! We've even pulled a one day liquor license so look for mimosas!! Then the season officially starts Saturday, June 1, in the market's regular spot -- the parking lot near the Little Red Store. Hours are 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the market runs through Oct. 12. I'm a board member for the market, and I would be happy to drop off a yard sign or a poster for your business, if you're interested. "like" the Tosa Farmers Market page for more information and to stay up to date on special events.
Testing :)
Great read for the many homeowners who still have their original windows in East Tosa.
Please keep your eye out for Prancer - see details & contact info below.
If anyone is still interested in participating in the neighborhood rummage sale on 6/2 and 6/3, you can still drop your registration and money off at my house (1846 N 71st) until tomorrow! There are several other Tosa neighborhood associations that are having their sales next weekend as well, and I heard that goodwill will have a mobile donation center in the Longfellow parking lot on Saturday from 1-4pm, which is a great resource for people to donate items they did not sell!
