Did you know we have a remnant of a native Blackland Prairie remnant within our neighborhood boundaries? And did you know that our neighborhood has “adopted” it? The prairie is located on Williamson Rd., just South of Lakewood Park.
10th Annual Halloween Party
Saturday, October 19, 2019, 3pm - 6 pm at 6700 block of Inverness
SAVE THE DATE!
It’s time to mark your calendars for our Annual Halloween Block Party!! We will send out the Evite in a few weeks, but we wanted to make sure you had time to work on your costume!
Our local police and firefighters should be on site with a fire truck and a patrol car for kids to explore. We will also have a petting zoo, pony rides, a stilt walker, a D.J., and a costume parade. The Hamburger Man will be grilling his delicious hamburgers and hot dogs. Beverages will include water, soft drinks, juice boxes, and beer & wine for adults.
THIS IS ALL INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF A MEAL TICKET $5.00 PER PERSON or $5.50 WITH A CREDIT CARD. We will have pre-payment options available when it gets closer to the event.
When you get the Evite, please be sure to RSVP, to ensure we have enough hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone. Also, please use the Evite to volunteer to bring cookies and/or help with set up, pony rides, and clean-up. It takes a lot of help to put on this fabulous party!
