National Night Out and Litter Stomp

Thanks to all the Ridglea North neighbors that made our National Night Out and Litter Stomp events a huge success! Big shout-out to event organizers Renee Mitcham (NNO) and Suzie Jary (Litter Stomp). 

Yard of the Month

This month's Yard of The Month goes to Max and Remy Brown 6429 Curzon. Max and Remy have lived here for 5 years and have created a beautifully landscaped front yard. For the season they have filled the entrance to their home with orange and white pumpkins of all sizes. You can't miss the huge pumpkin head scarecrow in the flower bed which was built by Max.

Neighbor Spotlights

Kim Cox

1) Tell us about yourself and your familyKim grew up in Fort Worth. Went to Paschal High School and then onto Baylor University. After college she attended graduate school and has worked for Cook Children’s as a Social Worker for 21 years, which was her dream job as a kid. Jim grew up in Midland and went to Midland High School. After high school went to Angelo State University and has been working in the oil and gas industry since 1996. A couple of years ago, we started Wild Rooster Salsa. Which has become so much more than a COVID distraction. We are recent empty nesters with one son graduating from college three years ago and one graduating from high school two years ago. You may see us out walking our dog Lucy around the neighborhood. She’s the old slow one with her tongue hanging out after a block.

2) How long have you lived in Ridglea North? We have lived in Ridglea North since 2007 undertaking a large remodel in 2011.

3) What’s your favorite neighborhood activity or event? Both the Independence Day Parade and National Night Out are our favorite events in the neighborhood. And though the Turkey Trot is not necessarily a neighborhood event we love running and cheering them on from our front yard.

4) What’s your favorite thing to do in Fort Worth? Our favorite activity in Fort Worth is exploring the Trinity Trails along the river. We love a good patio when the weather permits or our own patio during football season. Sic’em Bears!

5) What’s your best advice on being a good neighbor? The best advice on being a good neighbor is getting out and getting to know the people around you and always exchange numbers…just in case you need them to pick up your packages.
