WHCCA 2021 Annual Meeting Tuesday, November 9th, 2021 from 7 pm -8:30 pm

Emergency Kits

Each WHCCA Block Captain stores and maintains a WHCCA Emergency Kit for their block in case of a major disaster.  This is one of the ways we use the voluntary homeowner dues. We are currently replacing expired items in the kits.

Sharing and Caring For Our Neighbors

If you are in need of assistance due to extended illness, please reach out to the Board for help with yardwork, getting your mail, etc. We will try to help.

Census is Hiring

We at the Census view our work as assisting in two main ways: This 2020 Census count will impact the entirety of Washington state's federal funding and representation for the next ten years, and the effort to accomplish it offers employment to our region at a time when many people may need additional financial support.


Reminder: Living with Wildlife — Coyotes

In October 2018,  the Cougar Mountain Neighborhood attended a presentation by Matt Stevens, US Department of Agriculture, Wildlife Services, held at Cougar Ridge Elementary. 
Since coyote parents teach their adolescent coyotes to hunt in autumn, this is a reminder about our wild life predator residents.  

Reports of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

The WHCCA is reconstituted!

At the November 7, 2019 annual meeting, the association attracted additional board members and volunteers at large to ensure that WHCCA remains active and effective.

Among the 2020 plans we are continuing the normal family events like the Easter Egg Hunt, “America’s Birthday”July 4th Celebration, and the August Ice Cream Social.

Other events and programs attendees suggested were Neighborhood Clean Up, a Community Garage Sale, Garden Club, Block Centered Gourmet Clubs, Walking Clubs, and Welcome Wagons in each Block.
