Changing times challenge us to keep in touch with as many Witherbee residents as possible. Avenues of communications change and newsletters, web sites, flyers and newspapers are not touching everybody any more. Online social networks have come quickly into the picture as a means to keep each other informed. That is why Witherbee has chosen to include Facebook pages as a communication tool to keep residents, young and old, up-to-date.

Please join Witherbee as a fan on Facebook and you will find pictures of events from cleanups, pool parties, block parties, lighting contests and much more. You will be informed of activities and events from the neighborhood in real time. You will be able to comment on posts, participate in discussions and communicate with each other.

Program:

Stuhr Park Renovations to Be Discussed at August Meeting

The time has come to begin dreaming, planning and scheming the future of Stuhr Park. The Lincoln Parks & Recreation Department’s 10 year facilities plan includes playground equipment replacement in the Park. Sometime in the next decade the existing playground will be removed and replaced with.... what?

We have the chance to speak up, speak out and take a role in shaping it. Swings have been requested which are very expensive. How about a meandering stream or a pond instead of a concrete lined ditch? Parks & Recreation has been severely cash-strapped for years. It is highly likely that unless we step up with a plan and vision for the park, we will get just the bare bones limited package the city can afford. Neighbors coming together to develop a vision and do fundraising resulted in the improvements you have enjoyed for several years now at Witherbee Park. Join us August 7th at Tabitha’s LifeQuest Center at 48th and J Street to review, plan, dream
