IMPROVEMENTS COMING SOON TO OUR MILITARY PARK MEDIAN!
The OG&E Award Money Committee presented a proposal at the August MPRA meeting to place two metal benches on the median located at 35th and Blackwelder. The membership voted unanimously to approve the proposal.
The two red benches will be placed at the West and East ends of the median. The benches will serve a dual purpose: 1.) the Military Park logo on the benches will provide name recognition branding for our neighborhood and 2.) to allow comfortable rest areas for neighborhood walkers and joggers living in our area.
Thanks to the committee members (Beverly Clark, Laura Garrison, Caroline Wiegman, Robin Pease, and Russ Islas) who have spent many hours this past year to make this project possible.
We hope to see this project completed by late Fall of this year! Look forward to future projects in our neighborhood that the association is considering in order to take advantage of the remainder of the OG&E Award money.

2015 Neighbors Night Out
Neighbors’ Night Out - September 15 , 2015
The annual Neighbors’ Night Out was held Tuesday, September 15, 2015. About 30 Military Park neighbors joined in for an evening to help build a stronger community spirit. Starting at 6:30 p.m. we gathered at our usual location, the median on 35th St between Florida and Blackwelder. There was plenty of food; we grilled hot dogs and links, enjoyed potato salad, baked beans, chips, and for dessert: strawberry cheesecake, pecan pie, and cherry pie!
It was not required but some neighbors brought food or desserts to share. Everyone came and hung out for a little or long time and met some new neighbors. Some neighborly neighbors brought a chair and a spare to share! As in past years, we got a visit from our police and fire departments, providing some entertainment for the kids.
This annual event is always a big hit for our neighborhood, so we hope you didn't miss it! We were there until it got too dark to see. We look forward to seeing everyone at Neighbors' Night Out again in September next year!
Pictures will be posted soon!!

Have you ever been curious about to what it takes to get the MPRA newsletter ready to go before it is delivered to your doorstep?
About once each quarter, the Military Park newsletter with the bright red logo is delivered to your doorstep full of the news of Military Park. There is quite a bit of work that goes into the preparation and delivery of the newsletter which is outlined below.
- The dates for submission of articles, when it goes to printer, when the stickers are applied, and when the newsletter is delivered is decided at a meeting at the beginning of the year.
- A member of the Ad committee goes to the local businesses and asks them to put an ad in our newsletter. A one time business card ad is $25 or $100 for an ad in each of the four newsletters, plus an ad on the website.. After the ads are received, they are sent to the editor with instructions.

Why Do We Need Watch Patrols in our Neighborhood?
by Bev Clarke, Patrol Captain
Our Military Park Resident's Association Watch Patrol is designed to add to the security of the people and property of all legal residents in our neighborhood. Our neighbors may be renting, be paying on a mortgage--or already own their home. We recognize all as our neighbors and we are happy to assist any of them as we patrol our neighborhood. Each patrol must include a driver and a "sidekick". Both people must be members (have paid dues and be over 18 years of age) and must have attended one training session sponsored by the OKC Police. Our training sessions occur at Hefner Park Briefing Station, at 3924 NW 122nd, Oklahoma City, OK. Sgt. Charley Epperley is the COmmunity Relations Officer who conducts this training. The next training session is Tuesday evening October 25 at 7 to 8 p.m.
