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.

Garage Sale Tips

Here are some tips that may help you in getting ready for a garage sale.

  • Make an inventory list of what you want to sell
  • Group items that can be put in a box and sold at a general price, like books or toys
  • Get price stickers ( you can find these at an office supply store)
  • Get or make signs - see the City of Plano website above for rules about signs
  • Decide how you are going to display items - do you need tables? Will everything be on the driveway?
  • Get cash for change: $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills, and maybe a roll of quarters
  • Have shopping bags or cardboard boxes on hand to help people carry their goods

If anyone else has some tips for holding a garage sale, please share by emailing Lisa Kravitz (
