Happy Holidays to all our residents!

It is that time of year when the weather can get the best of us and we have to be considerate of our neighbors. If you have the ability, clear sidewalks of snow for those who don't. If you are clearing alleys, don't pile the snow in front of a neighboring garage. The neighbor may have a car in there! When digging your car out of the snow, do not throw the snow on the sidewalk where an area has already been cleared. If you have a vehicle that won't run, park it in front of your own house and not the one across the street, you prevent your neighbor from having the opportunity to park in front of their own house. Often we are so focused on our own problem that we fail to realize that we are creating problems for the person next door or across the street.
On another matter, it was noticed last month that most people in this neighborhood do not put their porch lights on at night and many of those that do actually deliver these newsletters! The cost to leave your porch light on all night is about $3.00 a month. By not leaving it on, you invite crime to happen.
