Halloween Reminder

Greetings Neighbors:

Halloween is approaching soon.  Despite it being on a Monday night this year, it will not prevent ghosts and goblins from wandering the neighborhood in search of sweets. 

We sincerely hope that you will choose to participate in order to keep this tradition alive.

If you choose to participate, please keep your porch lights on from 6pm - 9pm. 

If you would elect not to participate, please keep your porch light turned off until about 9:30 pm

We hope you have a Happy and Safe Halloween.
