The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association announced its Home of the Month winner as Ms. Willie Humphreys at 3902 Tacoma Ave. in Red Bank. 

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association nominates and chooses homes that have dramatically improved in their curb appeal.  While Ms. Humphreys always kept a nice landscape, her home was practically demolished from the tornado that ran through Red Bank in 2011, causing a tree to fall into her home.  Nextdoor neighbor, Erin Creal, said the transformation since then has been dramatic.  “I literally thought her home would be totaled.  It was a huge tree that seemed to slice the house in half when it fell and of course the roots caused extensive damage to the yard.” 

“Ms. Humphreys has always taken pride in the appearance of her home so it’s nice to be able to recognize that.  It’s what we are all about!” said Carla Quinn, Chair of Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association. 

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association is a group of Red Bank residents that are committed to helping the city be a more desirable place to live. Their community meetings are held quarterly at the Red Bank Community Center behind Erlanger North. All Red Bank residents are welcome to attend.  For more information, go to www.redbankpride.org or email redbanknpa@gmail.com
