A Word From the President



The Watrous Heights Neighborhood Association Zoom Meeting scheduled for Wednesday Evening April 14th 2021 at 6:00 pm has been cancelled.

Hi WHNA Neighbors:

Our Featured Guest Speaker for our previous meeting was Nola Aigner Davis, Public Health Communication Officer with the Polk County Health Department.

She provided an informative presentation with supporting on screen materials regarding the current Covid-19 Vaccine situation in Polk County.

Her follow-up question and answer session was helpful and informative and should have been of interest to all of our neighbors.

While the Covid-19 problem is still a threat to us all and until most of our neighbors have received their Vaccine shots, we have agreed to feature the most important links to the Polk County Health Department Website.

As we learn of links to websites that can help in scheduling vaccine shots, we will add those links to this page. Jump past the two pdf files to see the Covid-19 Vaccine Related Links.

MacRae Park Update Info: I have also enclosed a pdf file below with information about the projected improvements for MacRae Park. We will also post this as a permanent addition in the Parks section of the WHNA New Neighbor Info Webpage.

News Release regarding Iowa Voting Rights. I have also enclosed a pdf file of a NAACP News Release regarding a New Iowa Law SF413. Clearly, this if passed into law and enforced will make it harder for many of our minority neighbors to vote.


We also have a large number of elderly neighbors in the WHNA area. This will make it more difficult if not impossible for many of these elderly neighbors to cast their vote. 

Stay SAFE and Stay WELL
