And then the night comes alive…With lights to dazzle…
And everything’s extraordinary…Nothing is left ordinary
These are the poetic words from our secret panel judging our Lakemoor Hills neighborhood for the Holiday Spirit Awards. Was it lights or the wine? We don’t know but we do know that Y’all have really come alive with Christmas Decorations. So alive that the 3 Holiday Spirit Awards presented every year has been increased to 4. And honorable mentions use to only get the small print in the FB post WE NOW HAVE SIGNS!
There are so many and all deserve a big HO HO HO for their holiday spirit. FYI – if someone wins they are ineligible for 3 years this allows us to recognize all efforts.

Great to see so many neighbors attend the Association Meeting last Thursday night. What a nice tribute to Charlie Mulligan,.
Everyone enjoyed the social time before the meeting along with the wonderful finger food supplied by Family Meal. They are a nice and talented couple that would love to hear from anyone interested in their food services. Below is the link to their website also in the photo section I have pics of their card. http://www.familymealdfh.com
Return of the Caladiums … WAIT don’t buy them at a retailer.
The Garden Club will again be offering high quality Caladiums at a lower price than Garden Shops and Box Stores. Direct from the grower they perform much better than the ones you get from a retailer. Details on availability coming soon.
