Whiffletree HOA Annual Meeting

Whiffletree HOA (WHOA) has scheduled its annual meeting on Monday, April 1 at 6:30 PM at Davis Library. The agenda includes election of Board members for upcoming year, review of financial report and proposed FY19 budget, and reports by committee chairpersons.

Also, Clay Lipscomb, City of Plano Community Investment Program (CIP) Engineering Manager, will provide information on the planned CIP project to replace the Whiffletree screening wall along Legacy. We encourage all Whiffletree neighbors to attend this meeting to vote in WHOA election and learn more about plans for your neighborhood as well as City of Plano. Please note that only WHOA members that paid dues for the past year or have already paid for this coming year will be eligible to vote. There's another reason to become a paid WHOA member! See you at this important event.

Presentation Made at City Workshop on "Best Neighborhoods" Program

On February 20, Plano Neighborhood Services held a workshop to assist Homeowners Associations (HOAs) to apply for and be recognized with BEST Neighborhoods Designation. As part of the workshop where Neighborhood Services personnel described the application process and key factors in the evaluation process, Whiffletree HOA (WHOA) was asked to present to the attendees how Whiffletree achieved Platinum level (highest level) recognition by the City of Plano.

Bill Ostergren, WHOA Treasurer, and Tom Dixon, WHOA Beautification Committee Chairman, presented to the audience of over 30 people, representing more than 10 HOAs. Whiffletree was the only HOA presenting to the group. The presentation was very well received and triggered several questions (CLICK HERE to view the WHOA presentation).

WHOA was honored to make this presentation and share its experience with the BEST application process and to showcase what a fantastic neighborhood Whiffletree is. Special thanks to Tom Dixon and Bill Ostergren for their work on preparing the presentation and for such an outstanding job of communicating what Whiffletree does to make it an exceptional neighborhood. Great job guys!

Photos from Winter Social now available for viewing

The WHOA Winter Social was held on Jan. 21, at Napoli's Italian Restaurant. Pictures from this event can be viewed by CLICKING HERE TO VIEW PICTURES.

The Winter Social was attended by 104 Whiffletree HOA members and has been a long-time annual event sponsored by the Whiffletree HOA for neighbors to meet neighbors in a fun, social setting.  By all reports, everyone enjoyed the classic Italian meal and the opportunity to meet their neighbors.

Alan Kravitz, Whiffletree HOA President, welcomed all the attendees to the Winter Social and highlighted that this is the premier annual event for the Whiffletree HOA and was so happy to see such a great turnout.

Thanks to Karen Slott for organizing this event and Napoli’s management and staff for the great food and service.


Peanut Butter Drive - We collected 1,012 lbs

Thanks to the enormous generosity of Whiffletree families, we collected 1,012 lbs. of peanut butter for the North Texas Food Bank. It was an amazing effort, nearly double what we collected last year.

We received congratulations from Mayor Harry LaRosiliere’s office, from Plano Neighborhood Services, from the North Texas Food Bank, and from Davis Library staff. Whiffletree residents were very generous and we should all be very proud of our neighborhood. Many thanks for all of your many generous donations. Our residents proved once again that we have a lot of heart and that we deserve our BEST Platinum designation from the city. Most important, our drive supporting the North Texas Food Bank will feed a lot of hungry Collin County residents. Thank you all very much!

Special thanks go to Tom Dixon and Bill Ostergren for the time that both of them spent collecting peanut butter from Whiffletree neighbors.


National Night Out 2018

As stated on City of Plano website, “National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event hosted by the National Association of Town Watch and occurs the first Tuesday in October. The Plano Police Department participates in National Night Out and is proud of the commitment our community has to this program.”

“The primary purpose of National Night Out is to get neighbors to leave their front porch lights on, showing their support with their local police departments in the fight against crime. Neighbors are encouraged to get out of their houses and meet other neighbors in the area and get to know them. The theory being that if neighbors meet and get to know each other, they are more apt to report suspicious activity in their neighborhood rather than “look the other way” when they see something noteworthy. When you know your neighbors and watch out for them, overall crime in the area is reduced.”

Whiffletree HOA has proudly participated in NNO for several years to encourage neighbors to meet neighbors as well as police and fire personnel. On October 2, there were 68 Whiffletree neighbors at NNO, which was held at Prairie Meadow Park and catered by Hutchins BBQ. We also hosted visits from a number of Plano Police, including Plano Chief of Police, Gregory Rushin, Sargent Wes Gerig, Crime Prevention, and numerous other officers and Fire Department personnel.

We want to thanks Jerry Smith for his tireless work to make NNO a success and for all our neighbors who joined us and the Plano Police and Fire personnel.

Winner of Best Neighborhood Award - Platinum Level

Whiffletree is a 2016 “Plano BEST Neighborhoods,” Platinum Award recipient! We were formally recognized by the Mayor and the Plano City Council at their meeting on December 12, 2016. Platinum is the highest recognition level,  and only four Plano neighborhoods received it.  Of the four, we are the only one with a non-mandatory (voluntary) Home Owners Association.

This is a very proud moment for Whiffletree V, VI, VII and we want you to share in the excitement!  For more information about the “BEST” program and the award presentation visit www.plano.gov/2893/BEST-Neighborhoods-Designation.
