Dumpster Days June 8-10, 2018

posted May 12, 2018, 9:33 PM by Carla Robinson   [ updated May 29, 2018, 1:54 PM ]

It's time to clean up! RNA reserved a dumpster from the City of Tulsa for our neighborhood to discard household items and neighborhood cleanup efforts. 

Dumpster will be placed at City View Park located at the corner of 13th Place and S. Atlanta Place starting on Friday, June 8 and will picked up Monday morning, June 11.  

PLEASE DO NOT OVERFILL DUMPSTER! Dumpsters should be no more than three-fourth (3/4) full, so that they are easily transported to the landfill. Items should not be placed on the ground around the dumpster. 

Dumpsters are for use at residential sites and CANNOT be used for commercial purposes (for example, to clean out rental properties).

Certain items that CANNOT be placed in the dumpsters (such as limbs and other tree debris, grass clippings, Freon bearing appliances, car parts or tires, air conditioners, roofing materials, and whole buildings, sheds or garages). Click HERE for more details about dumpster use...

PLEASE RECYCLE! Also consider other venues to recycle items rather than dumping them.

Neighborhood Yard Sale, June 2-3

posted Apr 13, 2018, 8:59 PM by Carla Robinson   [ updated May 31, 2018, 10:00 PM ]

Join the 3rd annual Renaissance Neighborhood Sale on JUNE 2 and 3, weather permitting.

We’ve had two very successful sales with lots of traffic and buyers, so don’t miss out this year! We had 36 participants last year. Can we beat that this year?

Set-up your sale at your house as you normally would. RNA (Renaissance Neighborhood Association) will advertise in Tulsa World and on multiple social media sites. RNA will compose a map of participants you can post or print out. RNA will set out large signs at key areas around the neighborhood but you will need to put out signs to draw people to your house.

The sale will be advertised as beginning at 8am but you can start as early as you want. There is no set closing time. You decide how long you want to stay open and whether you want to go for one or both days.

Be sure to tell all your neighbors and invite them to join!

One of the Original RNA Founders Passes Away, Sheila Swearingen

posted Mar 28, 2018, 9:39 PM by Carla Robinson   [ updated Apr 13, 2018, 9:08 PM ]

Sheila Kiernan Swearingen, 73, passed away in Tulsa on March 20, 2018. Sheila was one of the founding members of the Renaissance Neighborhood Association. She was instrumental in saving the Campbell Hotel from being torn down for parking space in the late 1990s. Sheila and her husband Scott lived on College Avenue but recently moved to live near Riverside Drive. Our city and our neighborhood have lost a great civil leader.

Taken from her obituary in the Tulsa World:

She was born in Dana Point, California, on June 1, 1944 to Edmund and Roberta Kiernan. She graduated from California State Long Beach in 1966. She met and married her husband of 39 years, Scott Swearingen, in San Leandro, California, before moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981.

She was a loving wife, a caring mother, and a deeply involved member of the community, most recently serving as president of the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma. She will be remembered for her warmth, her leadership, her gentle heart, and her quiet and fierce devotion to the causes she believed in. She is survived by her husband, Scott Swearingen; her daughter, Julia Swearingen; and her son, Jake Swearingen and wife, Laura Wiles.

The memorial service will be held at All Souls Unitarian Church, 2952 S. Peoria Ave., on Saturday, March 31st, at 1 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma, JustHope, or the All Souls Unitarian Church Green Team.
