The Merle Hay Neighborhood Association is celebrating our namesake with vendors, cool treats, prizes, and fun! Join us at the Tower Park shelter at 4900 Hickman Road in Des Moines from 6-8PM on Tuesday, June 28th!
Cool off in the Tower sprayground, take a few jumps in the bounce house, or play a bit of pickleball or basketball. This event is all about bringing the neighborhood together and celebrating Merle Hay, the first Iowan, and possibly the first American, to sacrifice his life for his country in WWI. We will also have information about the Merle Hay Corridor improvements and you’ll have an opportunity to give some input!
Des Moines Water Works H2Go station is sure to be a hit with the hot temps, and thanks to Des Moines Corporate Games and Live Healthy Iowa, we have water bottles to rehydrate you! With the Beaverdale Farmer’s Market close by, good food and music are only a few steps away.
Thank you to Ace Hardware on Hickman, Banker’s Trust Company, Neighborhood Finance Corp., Franklin Library, Hop A Lot, Bolton & Menk, Pat Meiners, Price Chopper Merle Hay, Des Moines Water Works, Des Moines Corporate Games, and Live Healthy Iowa for all you have done to make this event possible! Another big Thank You to the volunteers who help plan, setup, and make the night go smoothly!
