Block Captain Chairman:  Looking for a Block Captain Chairman!

Our wonderful Block Captain Chairman, Kim Moore, has moved out of Baton Rouge to be closer to her family. 
We are missing her enthusiasm and "people" skills!

A Letter from your President

                                                   Block Captain Dinner - Monday, September 20, 2021 - 6:30 pm at Hilltop Arboretum
Welcome to the Block Captain Dinner!   We thank you for your commitment as a block captain.  We will be serving a light dinner and having a meeting to discuss the upcoming neighborhood directory.  Your participation is imperative to prepare for the printing of the directory.  Yes, 2 years have already passed and it's time to print a new directory.  The housing market has been "HOT" and we need updated information on our new neighbors.  We know the directory is appreciated by all.  It is very costly to print, but the 2020-2021 directory was funded entirely by the ads that were sold & displayed in our directory!  Your efforts are greatly appreciated to keep the directory as current as possible.  Thank you for of your help.
Ellen S. Elias
GOHCA President

We are officially planning our new GOHCA Neighborhood directory for 2022-2023!

We successfully sold ads to finance the printing of our previous directory in 2019 and were able to distribute this directory
free of charge to all of our residents in our Greater Oak Hills Neighborhood!  These ads were sold to some of our residents, as well as nearby businesses in the Baton Rouge area - mostly by our 2019 GOHCA board.  

We are trying to expand our "sales team" by also asking any Block Captains, as well as our current and past board members to help with these sales!  You can consult your 2020-2021 Directory to see the listing of all the advertisers who helped to fund that directory.

          Keep up with our Block Captain Page on our website: www.oakhillsbr.com

(Under the “About Us” tab on the website).

Thank you,
Martha Austin, Membership and Ellen Elias, GOHCA President
