New Neighbor Welcome and The Fountains Fisherman

This is to serve as a reminder as well as new information. Friday evening (June 10th) at 6:30 we will be meeting at the gazebo on Soldier Dr. to meet and greet new neighbors and longtime neighbors. Snacks will be provided but bring a chair and your choice of drink. Please RSVP to Lenore Chambers at 816-718-5711 by Thursday the 9th.

Also it appears that there are a number of new folks in The Fountains, as well as others, that enjoy fishing and may not have anyone to go with them. Generally, we that live in The Fountains should not be going fishing alone. After the main get together Friday evening those that would like to meet others that also enjoy fishing will meet for a quick gathering to try to get acquainted. If you can’t make it then, at least we can get a list and phone number of the ones that will be there.

Also Fellas remember we’re meeting at the Big Biscuit at 10:30 this Thursday.

Hope to see you on Thursday and/or Friday.

The Fountains Fellas

Hey guys, thanks for getting back to me for a chance to eat together.  It looks like we could have 12-15 guys, and any others are welcome.  It appears that several of us have mobility issues and I know that’s also true for hearing.  Of course this is only guys so selective hearing shouldn’t be a problem.  

After checking a number of places that can handle that many and considering our other issues I’d like to try the Big Biscuit on Blue Parkway this first time.  If we could go next week on Thursday, the 12th, at 10:30-11:00 maybe we could miss the biggest crowd for noise and parking problems.  We could order at 11:00 and visit some before hand if you wish.  You can park near the patio area where there is a ramp that is wheelchair accessible.  Anyone that would prefer not to drive just let me know and I’ll try to make it work for you.

For anyone that’s interested in the Girls/Guys Night out on May 31st that hasn’t replied yet let me know.  You can reply to this email or call my cell at 913-259-9400.  Remember that you have friends wherever you move, you just have to meet them!

Calling all Fountains Veterans

Dear Fountains Veterans & Friends,

It is a tradition here in the Fountains to honor all of our Veterans by placing American flags in their front yards from Armed Forces Day through Memorial Day weekend each year. This year we will place flags on May 20th and remove them the day after Memorial Day. Flags are usually placed in front of a tree or in a flower bed, so they are out of the way of the mowers.

If you are a veteran who is new to the neighborhood, we would like to add your name to our list so we can honor you. Please send your name and the information below to Gloria Helmer at ghelmer72@gmail.com as soon as possible so we may purchase additional flags, or you may call and leave a message at (816)405-4215.


If you have served, please complete the form below or reply to the email which was sent with the following information.

Fountains Ladies and Guys,

We are planning another Girls Night Out, and Boys Night Out, like we had during the bad old days of the pandemic. Small groups (6-8) will be randomly selected to meet at a host’s house for a couple of hours to chat, share, meet someone in the neighborhood you may not know, and just relax and enjoy the evening.

For the Ladies, please respond to dlp1kcgma@gmail.com or 505-250-1135.

For the Guys, please respond to Mark Peters markpampeters@gmail.com, or 913-259-9400.

Please indicate if you are interested in participating and/or hosting a small group. Let’s take a couple of hours after the Spring Holidays to kick back and enjoy each other’s company.

In hopes of waiting for warmer (drier) more comfortable outdoor weather, the date for this activity is set for 6:00 pm, May 31st.

Once we have a list of interested participants, names will be randomly drawn, and everyone will be notified of their hosted location on the day of the event.

I am interested in attending-Name and phone number______________________________________________

I am willing to host a small group- Name and Phone number_________________________________________

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Reminder

Join your neighbors in a unique dinner opportunity Friday, May 20th at 6:00 p.m.  It’s a small group dinner with surprise guests, hosts, and menu!  Email Dee Hachinsky (telegirl45@gmail.com) or Jan Hoffman (jchoffman10@gmail.com); or RSVP by phone:  Dee (816-572-8042) or Jan (816-678-2982) to reserve your spot!  You may also fill out the attached invitation and drop it off.  Singles are welcome!  Choose your partner or let us pair you up!  Please RSVP by May 13th!!

Attention: The Fountains Fellas

The other day I read the Social Activities Newsletter and noticed these activities listed: Ladies Coffee Group, Ladies Bunco, Ladies Bridge, and Ladies Luncheon.  So guys, what are we doing all the time the gals are out having fun?  I know, some are enjoying having that time at home to yourselves, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have our own time together with some of the other guys.

I’d like to find out if there are guys that would like to get together for breakfast, lunch or something in between.  Any chance I get to eat, I’m up for it!  It’s been suggested meeting at McDonalds for breakfast, or somewhere else we could get a pastry or pie mid morning.  Or we might like to just have lunch somewhere regularly.  Also I’d like to get a feel for how often this might occur.  You might meet a new fishing buddy you didn’t know lived right down the street, or someone that might enjoy other things that you do.

You can reply to either my email markpampeters@gmail.com or give me a call on my cell at 913-259-9400.  Hope to hear from some of you.

Give me a holler,
Mark Peters
