A Word From the President

If you have not yet attended one of our WHNA Neighbor's meetings, please do that soon. There is no cost to attend.

You will have an opportunity to become involved in helping make our Watrous Heights Neighborhood a safer and friendlier place for all of us to live.

Updated Info for BSA Troop 22

BSA Troop 22 was formed on October 1, 1958 at Barlow Granger Elementary School. 

We are holding an open house celebration on April 6, 2024 to celebrate our 65th anniversary. Location will be in the fellowship hall at the Compassion Church of the Nazarene at 4110 South Union Street. Open House begins at 4:00 pm followed by the program at 5:00 pm.

This is open to any past members of the troop and their families. This is an opportunity to share experiences during the time in the troop and possibly connect with other scout friends. You will meet the current members of the troop which is still going strong. We also are seeking any group photos that anyone may have that would be willing to allow me to scan before the event to include in a slideshow. For that or any other inquires, contact Rick at email: or text 515-418-6069.

Thank You

Rick Romeo, Scoutmaster Troop 22

Lead Poisoning can cause permanent brain damage in young children. Repair assistance is now available!

The high risk is in homes built before 1978. The highest risk of lead poisoning is in homes built before 1960. 

Unfortunately, that is about 3 out of every 4 homes in the Watrous Heights Neighborhood Association area. 

If you and your home qualify, the inspection is free to learn if your home has a lead poisoning risk. The Risk can be repaired AT NO COST to you.
