Claire Weeks was a past president of the Terra del Sol Neighborhood Association. She held the office for 14 years, never losing her enthusiasm to better the neighborhood in which she lived since 1969. During her years in office, she worked tirelessly to establish a good working relationship with the elementary and high schools, community pool, businesses, and churches in the neighborhood. Ms. Weeks obtained grants which brought playground equipment, lighting, and a gazebo to Terra del Sol Park. Since the upgrades that she made possible, weddings, parties, and neighborhood events, such as the annual children's Halloween Party, have been held there.
Claire was very active in organizing groups to clean the washes in the neighborhood, paint over graffiti, patrolling the neighborhood at night, and created a social group for neighborhood seniors. She coordinated several large neightborhood cleanups, even matching up volunteers to help those unable to do their own work. In addition to being an advocate for the Terra del Sol neighborhood, Claire also volunteered with the Top Dog Agency for 10 years helping to train dogs to assist their owners with daily tasks. She also read the newspaper for the visually impared on Sun Sounds Radio.
