            KEEPING OLDE WYTHE RESIDENTS INFORMED
     With summer here, the board of the Olde Wythe Neighborhood Association wishes you a safe and healthy season. In
  continuing with my theme of safety in the neighborhood during my term as president, we have included in this edition
  of the Olde Wythe News articles on topics of safety that could help you in a time of need. We have also spotlighted a
  few of the many services the city has to offer that can help improve our neighborhood and our lives. We hope the
  information found in this newsletter is of value to you and your family.
    This past spring the board has been busy with activities such as the annual Easter egg hunt for kids and the neigh-
  borhood yard sale day. We ended the spring with the pool party at the Wythe Pool. I would like to thank Peggy Kruger,
  our social committee chairman, for the planning and execution of the Easter egg hunt and the pool party and Rusty
  Gates, who headed up the yard sale day.
     We do these events for you, our neighbors, and thank those of you who support these efforts with your membership
  dues. If you are not a member, please consider becoming one…it’s easy. All you have to do is to fill out the form on the
  last page and mail it in. It’s that simple.
    One final note…In light of busy summer schedules, with vacations and neighbors just taking time for family, the
  OWNA board has decided the cancel the July General Membership Meeting, which was scheduled for July 28. We hope
  you will join us at our next General Membership meeting in October.
     Gregory Siegel, President




AN EGG-CEPTIONAL
   GOOD TIME
This year’s Easter Egg Hunt, held on Saturday,
April 11th, was great fun for all who attended.
The Olde Wythe Neighborhood Association
hid 1000 eggs which were found in a matter of
a few minutes by the 93 children in atten-
dance. The winners for finding the most eggs
were Deven Smith of Allegany Road Ages
0 – 3, Jared Farron of Powhatan Parkway Ages
4 - 7 and Josh (no last name given) of
Powhatan Parkway Ages 8 – 10. For their
efforts each received a special prize basket.
Many of the children came dressed in their
best Easter attire for photos with the Easter
bunny. We would like to thank the Wythe Fire
Department for helping the Easter Bunny find
her way to the park.




 OWNA General Membership Meeting for July has been
          cancelled. Enjoy the summer.

                                  Still Hunting for History
   In May, the 3rd annual Hunt
for Hampton History event took
place. Located again at the
Hampton Convention Center,
the theme this year was educa-
tion in Hampton. Our neighbor-
hood was represented with a
booth highlighting the recent
launch of the Olde Wythe
History website (oldewythehis-
tory.com) as well as the historical
markers that are placed along
Chesapeake Avenue. Next year’s
event will be held in March and
promises to be bigger than ever,
celebrating the 400th anniver-
sary of Hampton.
