Welcome Bags

New to Alamitos Heights?

We like to deliver a Welcome Bag to new residents of the neighborhood whether you own your home or rent one.

How do we know your new to Alamitos Heights?

We depend on our resident realtors and word of mouth from our neighbors to find out if someone new has moved into the hood.


Every once and a while we miss someone new.

Give us a shout if we missed you, because it wasn't on purpose.


Spotlight on a Neighbor

Luke Wannemacher is a Flying Squirrel

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.

If  you would like to help the Flying Squirrels they are fundraising the  trip to the Global Finals. Options for tax-deductible donations are as  follows:
