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.

The family of Robert E. “Bob” Porter was deeply saddened by his passing last week. To honor Bob and thank the local community that befriended and supported him, an informal gathering will be held starting at 1 p.m. Sunday at Bob’s former home at 3520 Bluff Point Drive in Knoxville. A lunch buffet with drinks will be served.
Bob’s children, Christopher and Abbey, welcome attendees to bring stories or thoughts about their father.
Please rsvp by Thursday November 28 (end-of-day ok), just so we can judge the luncheon requirements.
Any questions, please call or text Abbey at 610-585-5147.
Due to a conflict with Lake Hills Church, (funeral) we need to reschedule our LHHA meeting to Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 PM. Please help us get the word out and share this info with any group within the neighborhood of which you are associated.
Lake Hills Church has a conflict (funeral) and we will have to move our meeting this week to another date. We are waiting to hear from the church to find out if Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 PM is available. Please share this info and stay tuned to our communications to be able to attend.
Two of our neighbors on the peninsula, one on the north side and one on the south, are developers of The Mountain Mile having its premier this weekend. They invite all Lakemoor neighbors to visit a special event tonight on The Lawn. They will have a band, food trucks, vendors and The Mountain Monster will be open. It’s an incredible three-in-one thrill ride from 200 ft towers. You may have read about it in today’s News Sentinel or seen it on TV yesterday. Event is from 5 til 10 tonight. There’s no admission charge tonight.
On December 4, 2016, at 3:00 pm, Lake Hills Presbyterian Church will hold a special worship service – Hope for the Holidays: A Worship Service of Remembrance and Hope. This “Blue Christmas” service will be open to all members of the community and will focus on helping those who find they are filled with feelings of loneliness or depression. The worship space will be a safe place for people to experience emotions and be among others who are also experiencing loss, change and difficult times in their lives. Come and share in this unique worship time providing a worship experience that should be helpful and uplifting. All are invited to attend.
