The Votes are in! WPNA has a new logo.

The votes are in and the Winnona Park Neighborhood Association (WPNA) has completed their quest for a new organizational logo. We received such high quality, creative logo designs and neighborhood input was extraordinary.

We'd like to congratulate Jennifer Reed the designer of our new WPNA logo. That logo is attached here and can also be found on our Facebook page: You'll be seeing much more of this logo as it rolls out across our communication outlets, forms, merchandise, etc.

We'd like to thank all the wonderfully creative people who submitted designs and all those who participated in our voting process.

Winnona Park is getting a new Logo and we need your ideas!!

It is time to create our own Winnona Park neighborhood logo!!! This will be different from the school logo and will represent what the neighborhood and community mean to all of us. Once we have the logo, we can use it across all mediums (website, Facebook, t-shirts, car magnets, home banners, signs and posters, etc. to represent our brand to the rest of Decatur.

So... we need your help!! You know and love Winnona park, so we want your logo ideas and submissions. Here is the schedule for the logo submission and selection:

Now through July 11th: Submit your logo ideas/images by emailing them to or by posting them on the Winnona Park Facebook page. . Anyone can submit; you do not have to be a WPNA member of even a resident of the neighborhood to make a submission.

Week of July 14th: WPNA Executive Committee will combine all submissions and prepare for posting and neighborhood review.

Rest of July: We will encourage "feedback/commentary/likes" on all of the submissions.

First two weeks of August: The Executive Committee will narrow the logo submissions down to a reasonable level (top 3, 4, etc.) based on the public feedback.

August or early September membership Community Meeting: The final choices will be advertised and put to a vote at the meeting. Only current members will vote.

So let's see some logos!!!


Team Decatur has invited Winnona Park to join Team Decatur as a WPNA group for the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk and Fitness Program.

Team Decatur is a group of City of Decatur residents, employees and friends who participate in the annual KP Run/Walk 5K. This year's event is Thursday evening, September 11, at Turner Field.

Members have fun, get fit, and get a FREE Team Decatur t-shirt to wear during the race. Team members join together before and after the run/walk at the Team Tent to enjoy refreshments and make new friends at the "World's Largest Office Party!" Last year Team Decatur had over 200 members - half runners, half walkers, ages 13 to 83!

We would love to have a strong showing for Winnona Park - there will be special swag and prizes for our WPNA group!

The big after party is all complimentary - food catered by Oakhurst Market!

To sign up go to the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk Web site: Click "Join a Corporate Team" and search "Team Decatur." The cost is $25.00

Please email me at to let me know you joined - I am keeping track of the runners in our group.

Thank you all for the support, we are looking forward to a great Winnona Park turn-out.
