Hello, Neighbors, 

We are already past halfway through the summer, and I hope it is going well for you and your family. 

Neighbors and friends celebrated the July 4th holiday with our annual King William Regatta and picnic in Upper Mill Park.  Thanks to all the participants in the regatta, and congratulations to our new champions in the canoe division: the father and son team of Bradley and Alec Toland!  We had a great turnout for the picnic after the regatta.  Thanks to all who attended and for the delicious food everyone brought.  I also want to thank Brad Shaw and his volunteers who made the picnic such a success.  If you were not able to attend this year, we hope to see you at next year’s regatta and picnic.  It’s a great way to celebrate Independence Day with family and friends.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  While the kids are out of school, things at the KWA continue to move along. 

The City rolled out its pilot parking program for the King William and Lavaca neighborhoods.  The KWA is assisting with its implementation. If you live or work on an affected street, you should have been contacted by the KWA to inform you about the new parking guidelines.  For more information, contact the KWA office.

Wow!  What a fabulous Fiesta and celebration of the 50th anniversary of the King William Association!  I want to thank the staff and all the volunteers and sponsors for your hard work, dedication and support in putting on what I consider the premier Fiesta event, The King William Fair.  I also want to thank the King William community for your support which has made the Fair possible for the past 50 years.

It’s hard to believe that it is already summer.  The kids are home, vacations are planned and the fun begins. 

We had a very busy spring, which was capped off by another successful King William Fair.  We are still tabulating the results and will report them when final.  The results are no doubt due to the dedication and support of our staff, sponsors, volunteers, and of course our residents.  I personally want extend a huge thank you to Zet Baer, who is stepping down as the Fair organizer, for her years of service and leadership.  Zet’s vision and leadership made the Fair what it is today and we promise to build on it as we move forward.

Greetings neighbors!

At our January meeting, KWA Board members voted to create the King William Foundation, a 501(c)(3) supporting organization. Creation of the foundation fulfills several purposes. 

First: The KWA Strategic Plan under the fundraising category states, “Exploration of endowment and planned giving.”  By creating a separate entity, we can build up a fund that will earn interest, thereby reducing our reliance on the Fair as the primary source of revenues.
