The Old Southeast Neighborhood Association has traditionally held a number of seasonal gatherings such as the summer sailboat race and cookout and a December holiday party, as well as several annual events. For more details on each event click on the links below.
Stay tuned for details about our next Annual Community Yard Sale in March 2023.
Come find a variety of old and new must-haves and have fun meeting the people of Old Southeast. Because of the diverse makeup and talent of our neighbors, our Yard Sale cannot be beat for variety and style. From household items to art, buyers get great deals while being able to see the artwork that is created by some of our residents.
Generally on the same weekend as our Annual Neighborhood Yard Sale in March, we conduct a Trash Collection and Neighborhood Cleanup Event. OSNA arranges for a large dumpster to be situated in the neighborhood (previous location has been on Beach Drive so that palm fronds and other refuse can be cleared from Lassing Park. Last year our volunteers collected 2.6 tons of trash from around our neighborhood and the park.
A big thank you to Frances Gatz and Roger Telschow who organized and hosted the first-ever Old Southeast Plant Sale in early April 2021. The generous duo donated over 200 potted plants, and they welcomed other plant lovers throughout Old Southeast to do the same, as they shared that all proceeds from the sale would benefit the Old Southeast Neighborhood Association.
Every year in April, neighbors of the Old Southeast Neighborhood bring their plants and cuttings to the shade-filled parking lot of The Chattaway Restaurant for the annual Plant Swap.
You will find seedlings, cuttings, and plantings donated by those in our neighborhood. Many of the beautiful landscapes around our neighborhood feature plants obtained from this free event. Bring your own and exchange for another plant cutting you like. The plant swapping is free of charge. Event will be held in The Chattaway parking area.
We are renewing the annual kick off to the summer with the Summer Social Thursday, June 23, 2022 at 6PM. OSNA will sponsor the meeting and social event, all neighbors are invited to attend. Talk to the OSNA board of directors, meet the community police officers, K9 units, Fire trucks and more. Please bring food to share as this will be the center attraction.

The Old Southeast Neighborhood is magically transformed during the month of October. Glowing ghosts loom over houses. Bungalows boast front yards full of skeleton bones. From wicked witches to creepy cobwebs, Old Southeast is filled to the brim with Halloween spirit. Tis the season to eat, drink and be scary!
The Old Southeast Neighborhood Holiday Party is one annual event you do not want to miss. Traditionally held on the second Saturday of December, hundreds of neighbors mix and mingle at this holiday hootenanny featuring a potluck dinner, a deejay and dancing, a raffle, and an appearance by the man in red himself - Kris Kringle.
