Winter and the holiday season are within sight. Please have a safe, happy and blessed Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s celebration.
Reflecting back, this past year saw Knoch Knolls host many enjoyable social events including Easter Egg Hunt, a July 4th Parade, Knochstoch, National Night Out celebration, and most recently, a Fall Festival & Chili Cook Off. The Chili Cook Off Champion selected by residents was Teresa Zahora. A big thank you to Jessica Treibe, my other colleagues on the board, their spouses and everyone that helped set up, clean up, organize and attend the event. No subdivision in town has sponsored more events and the task is made more difficult considering our dues are among the lowest in the area. It is only through volunteers, donations and sponsors that such gatherings are sustainable. Huge thanks to Riley Tomlinson for supplying Pepsi products at several events, Opal Enterprises for sponsoring pumpkins for every child at the fall event and donations at the National Night Out and Tim Madlock of Comcast Cable/Xfinity Communications for cash or prize donations for several events.
Next, in terms of holiday lighting, let’s make it look beautiful. In the past, many streets looked magnificent when neighbors used uniform color combinations using white holiday lights in combination with another color of lights typically red, green or blue (for example, white base and green, blue or red around the branches or vice versa). Talk to your neighbors or look at what they are doing and let’s make it look like a winter wonderland when it snows.
Finally, our homeowners association wishes to express its deepest sympathy to the Joseph Kurzydym’s family of his recent passing. A wonderful man, Joe and his four sons were Eagle Scouts and for many years, including the last evening of his life, Joe and wife Nanette donated their electric power for our events at Knoch Knolls Commons. Thank you for your attention and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
