We’re using a new mail service called MailChimp to help us better reach you with news about your neighborhood. And we’re pretty excited about it, too.
Q: Why did you switch to MailChimp?
A: MailChimp is free to us as a small community organization, and it offers stronger privacy protections to you compared to if one of our board members sent out emails from their personal email account. Did we mention that it was free?
Q: Stronger privacy protections are good. Is that the only reason you switched?
A: No, we also liked the self-service options that MailChimp offers. This means that you can sign up for the list by clicking a link on our website, or remove yourself by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of all of the emails. This gives you and our other neighbors more control over your membership to this email list.
Q: What sort of information will you be sending on this email list?
A: We will use this list to send out our KHNA newsletter, and also to make special announcements (usually regarding an upcoming event, like a block party).
Q: How often will you email me?
A. Expect an average of one email per month. If it’s a month where we don’t publish a newsletter or have an event scheduled, you won’t hear from us at all. As a rule, we will never exceed two emails to you in any single month.
Have you signed up yet?? If not, do so here. You don’t want to miss the next event!
Casey Croy passed away on Saturday, January 26th. She was a good friend and neighbor to all of us, KHNA board member, and long-time resident of Kingshighway Hills. You would be hard pressed to find a better ambassador for our neighborhood, or more tireless advocate for the city and its residents. She will be missed.
A memorial service will be held this coming Saturday 2/2, 3pm at Mount Tabor United Church of Christ.
You read the Post-Dispatch to stay up to date on what’s happening in the Lou. And when you visit Crazy Bowls & Wraps you make sure to pick up the latest RFT. But something is missing, and you can’t quite put your finger it. You know there must be more info out there on what’s going down in our town. But where!?
We at KHNA hear you loud and clear, and we’ve got your solution. Introducing STL Collections, our way to help you stay connected.
The Twitter collection starts with a cross-section of 80+ St. Louisans who tweet about everything from events, crime, politics, and what they ate for lunch. You don’t need a Twitter account to follow along via our list, but you will need an account if you decide to participate in the conversations.
The blog collection is a feed of over 20+ STL focused bloggers. You can just click and read; every time you click the link (or refresh the page) any new posts are automatically added. If you’re familiar with the concept of RSS then you already know what this is and how to set it up; if you haven’t heard of RSS before then that probably means you have more of a social life than the webmaster here at KHNA.
Both collections are a work in progress; as we find more we’ll add more. Contact us if you would like your Twitter account or blog added. Let us know if you’d like to be removed too, though we can’t promise we won’t take it personally.
The Kingshighway Hills Neighborhood Association wishes everybody in Northampton and beyond a happy and safe holiday season.
There will not be a KHNA holiday/Christmas party this year. See you all at the next general meeting in March 2013!

A white Jeep Cherokee was stolen from the 4900 block of Miami last night. If you thought you saw something suspicious in that area last night, or you have any other information to share, please contact the SLMPD at 314-231-1212.
Stay alert, neighbors!
