What does membership include?

Green Space Maintenance

The PGC owns Parkwood Park. It is not a city or county park. As a result, the majority of annual dues, about 65%, are used for routine maintenance of the park, the triangle and traffic circle near East Lake and the new median at the East/West cut-through. This is a beautiful oasis for our families and neighbors to enjoy, but it takes a village, or a garden club in this case, to care for it!

Social Events

Fall and Spring Block Parties: Our annual family-friendly outdoor parties may be a little different this year due to Covid. However, we are brainstorming ways to continue to connect with our neighbors. In the past, neighbors come in the fall to catch up, eat potluck dishes along with PGC-provided entrees, watch kids parade in their Halloween costumes and help them climb up and explore the visiting fire trucks. In the summer, the block party is typically hosted at a neighbors home. In 2019 our summer social was hosted by Cindy Thigpen and Adam Williams. Families enjoyed great food while mingling with our wonderful neighbors and friends.

Neighbor Care

The Parkwood Welcome Committee delivers welcome notes, plants or baked goods to new neighbors. In addition, the Neighbor Care Committee helps to organize meal trains (following the birth of a child, during periods of illness etc.), sympathy and get well notes.

Communications

Neighborhood Directory: This printed booklet includes contact information for fellow neighbors, a Parkwood map, neighbor-recommended vendors (plumbers, painters, etc.) and contact information for neighbors who offer services such as babysitting or yard work.

E-mail Communications: Members receive all neighborhood-wide news (social events, park updates, City of Decatur happenings, etc.). Feedback and suggestions regarding communications can be sent to the PGC email address: news@parkwoodgardenclub.com

Website: The PGC Board maintains the neighborhood website (parkwoodgardenclub.com) that contains information like meeting minutes and useful ordinances.

Facebook Page: This is a closed Facebook group that all neighbors can join. It serves as a place to post neighborhood updates, missing pets, requests for babysitting or house care, and general needs that neighbors can assist each other with.

To put it in perspective, dues are only $7 a month. That cheaper than a glass of wine at Leon's! If you’ve been a member in the past, we hope you’ll join us again this year. If you’re new or considering joining for the first time, you’re in for a great year! Paying dues this September covers membership January 1 through December 31, 2022.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation that ONLY supports the care of Parkwood Park, please make a separate donation to Parkwood Park through the South Fork Conservancy using the Parkwood Park Tax Deductible Contribution form. The form can be downloaded from here: https://pgcdev.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/parkwood-park-tax-deductible-contribution-form-2015.pdf.
