Fox Run Entry Signs and Work Day
Thanks to everyone who participated in our Work and Clean-up Day and completing the new Fox Run Entry Signs with improved lettering. Our work team cleaned up the Kings Mountain and Fox Knoll entrances of “gutter grass” and other debris.
The signage project began 3 months ago to design new lettering, constructed of stainless steel, raised letting, and painted with premium outdoor paint for long-term durability in the Texas heat. We attempted to match the lettering from the original sign, located at Fox Knoll, but added the Fox Tails to further enhance our naming by an image representative of “Fox Run”. A simple cement-board backing with treated wood frame was constructed at Fox Knoll and the fading plastic overlay sign at Kings Mountain was removed. With the help of the work team, these signs were painted with light gray background and dark gray trim.
Finally, in December, appropriate, inexpensive solar-powered lighting was added to illuminate these signs at night. The majority of this project was complete by FRNA Volunteers, saving a lot of money in doing this much needed project for our neighborhood. By-the-way, this entire signage project was done using Fox Run Neighborhood Association dues. Again, these voluntary dues of $25.00 are needed for projects like these in our neighborhood and greatly appreciated from all residents (home owner and renters alike) in our Fox Run Neighborhood.
The annual Fox Run Community National Night Out (NNO) community event was well attended by almost 100 participants. We thank the staff and residents of the Autism Treatment Center (ATC) for providing their facilities at Fox Knoll and Nacogdoches for a great night of food, fun, and community fellowship. This neighborhood event is an important way of connecting with our Fox Run neighbors and sharing in the San Antonio community in celebrating National Night Out. Thanks to all that participated in this event.
As you have probably noted, we now have a new entry sign at the Fox Knoll entrance and have upgraded the signage at the Kings Mountain entry. These upgrades have been as a result of your annual dues at a total cost of approximately $4,000. We will be adding solar LED lighting to these signs in the future. During the community clean-up day, we worked on the completion of these signs and entry-way clean-up. We were very disappointed on the attendance at this clean-up event, but wish to thank those dedicated residents that joined us in providing work efforts to this community effort.
Please join the Fox Run Community in celebrating the National Night Out (NNO) community event to be held the night of Tuesday, October 1st from 5:00-9:00 PM. The NNO event held at the new Autism Treatment Center, located at Nacogdoches and Fox Knoll. We will have free food, refreshments and fun activities at this event, with community leaders and SAPD available to share in this neighborhood event. We ask everyone join us by coming the NNO event or by just coming out onto your front lawns to meet and greet the neighbors around you. Please feel free to just get with neighbors ahead of time and plan to share a meal or other time together, as we join the greater San Antonio community in celebrating National Night Out.
