Quarterly Civic League Newsletter

We are about to go to press with the October newsletter.  We have several people willing to deliver, but we could always use more.  We are especially looking for people to deliver on Foxhound and Hunter’s Trail from Foxhound back to the end by the lake.

If you would like to deliver  to your neighbors on those streets, please respond to the email you receive.

We have one couple who delivers to all of Waters Edge, so if you live in Waters Edge and would like to share the task, let us know.

The meeting will be on Monday, October 20th at 7pm at McKendree Methodist.

Fall Social Function

Neighbors:

Hope you have all had a great summer.  The rain was intense this week, but we should be transitioning to fall soon.  As the leaves begin to fall, remember that leaves need to be bagged, not blown into the street or the storm drains.  Several intersections were flooded this week, perhaps to debris in the storm drains.

The Board will meet this month to plan a function for the month of October.  It has been suggested to have a picnic at the pavilion located at McKendree Methodist Church. In the past, the Board has provided the drinks and hot dogs and hamburgers, while the remainder of the members bring side dishes and desserts.  We will look into activities for the children.  If you are interested in the planning for this function, let us know.

It was also suggested to have a “trunk” sale.  This is a variation of the traditional yard sale where you could bring your vehicle to the church parking lot, back into a space around the perimeter, bring a table to setup and sell items.  If this interests you, please respond to the email you receive announcing this post.  If there enough interested parties, we will work out the details.
