From the Desk of the Mayor
It is hard to believe that October has arrived. With it comes Halloween, a favorite celebration for our young citizens, as well as some of us older ones also. We will be doing a repeat of last year’s Halloween celebration on Saturday 10/30. Stay tuned to other articles of times and Covid rules in this edition as well as the city’s web site. I, along with everyone else, hope this will be the last time Halloween is celebrated in this fashion.
Coming fast on Halloween’s heels is Thanksgiving and Christmas. The lighting of the Christmas lights and decorations will happen on Sunday November 28th, as usual this is the Sunday following
Thanksgiving. We will be announcing soon if it will be in person or virtual again this year. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for in person!
We are also planning at this time the Santa in the Park visit along with the Christmas Parade, so put a place holder on Friday December 10th for Santa in the Park; and Saturday December 11th for the Christmas Parade; more details will be coming soon.
On another bright note some of the younger Citizens and I have completed our first “Kids are Citizens Too,” meetings. We had some lively discussion and very good questions and ideas. So, now I along with your City Staff members will be looking into some answers, action items, and further questions to address the ideas and questions put forth in these meetings. We will be having some follow up meetings for future discussions, questions, and report back from me and the staff on the first list of items. I hope the Young Citizens that attended will spread the word to their friends that this is a good time to be heard by your city about concerns and ideas as seen from a new set of eyes, and very observant eyes I must say.
We have been very lucky this year with storms and hurricanes so far, but the season is not over yet. Remember those who have not been as lucky as us in your prayers and giving to their relief if you are able. Don’t let your guard down and pay close attention to the weather at least for the next 60 days.
