Neighborhood of the Year

By  | 

The Jake Gaither neighborhood is this year's "Large Neighborhood of the Year" in Leon County. Saturday afternoon, residents celebrated the honor at Jake Gaither Park.

It was not a bad time to meet the new neighbors. We spotted several meet and greets. Residents have an idea why they're taking home the award; their deep rooted care for their community.

Anita Davis, President of the Jake Gaither Neighborhood Association, said, "We're doing things that make people community minded, and I am very appreciative of having won this award. It wasn't my award; it was for the neighborhood association."

The Jake Gaither Neighborhood Association is also making it official that it is now the newest member of the Tallahassee Police Department's "Neighborhood Watch Program".
