Join us for a fun and easy Easter Egg Hunt at Marina Vista Park just north of the playground by the tennis courts. Perhaps your kids are too old for this, but it is a hoot to watch the youngsters clamor to find candy filled Easter eggs. Come on out for a quick morning of fun.
AHIA will post signs and advertise on Craigslist and nextdoor.com. If you want your address advertised let us know. Join other neighbors as we all do some spring cleaning! You may purchase a permit from the City at http://www.longbeach.gov/finance/services-and-permits/convenience-fee/

In the late 1930's Harvard Medical School started one of the most extensive longitudinal studies ever, tracking the classes of 1939 to 1944 plus another 456 young men from the inner city of Boston.
"The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period" says Robert J. Waldinger the current head of this study.
Volunteering is a a good way to develop relationships and make a contribution to our neighborhood and community. Join us won't you? Go to the contact us page and send us message.
We like to deliver a Welcome Bag to new residents of the neighborhood whether you own your home or rent one.
We depend on our resident realtors and word of mouth from our neighbors to find out if someone new has moved into the hood.
Give us a shout if we missed you, because it wasn't on purpose.
Luke Wannemacher lives in Alamitos Heights. In October 2018, he joined a STEAM program (STEM + Arts) called Destination Imagination (“DI”). DI builds extraordinary life skills such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, teamwork and communication skills. DI blends creativity with hands-on scientific exploration. Kids get to dream up ideas, and then use scientific principles to make it real.
Luke Wannemacher, Jade Steege, Allegra Steege, Harrison Armus, Emerson La Porta and Maya Geer are The Flying Squirrels. The Flying Squirrels spent the last 6 months logging 150+ hours building, testing and learning from dozens of prototypes, as well as writing scripts, building set elements and creating props. They applied pneumatics, mathematics, aerodynamics, and rocket science, to create a device that could fly, land and drop payloads with remarkable precision. They wrote a narrative that was incredibly top-of-mind, diving into the bright and dark sides of humankind’s relationship with important evolutionary advancements with fire, trade, language and today’s use of technology, particularly the effects of social media and device addiction.
The 2019 Flying Squirrels competed in the LA Regional Tournament and the California State Tournament and won both the Technical and the Creative components of their challenge. They are headed to the 2019 Global Finals in Kansas City to compete with national and international teams.
