National Night Out
Tuesday, October 4th, 2022, 6pm to 8pm at Amenity Center
National Night Out culminates annually on the first Tuesday in October. This night enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring law enforcement and neighbors together under positive circumstances. The best way to build a safer community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings. National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities.
Head over to the Amenity Center on Tuesday, October 4th from 6:00-8:00pm for our community National Night Out. We will have a food truck, music, bounce house and a dessert bake-off! Sign up here to bring a dessert.
We will also have our local police, fire and game wardens on site as well!

World Smile Day
Friday, October 7th, 2022, All Day Event
In 1963, Harvey Ball, a graphic artist and ad man from Worcester, Massachusetts, created the smiley face symbol we've all come to know. In 1999, World Smile Day became an official holiday. The celebration aspects of the day were simple yet effective; people were to use the day to smile and make small acts of kindness worldwide. PASS OUT SMILES TODAY AND SEE HOW THAT MAKES OTHERS FEEL!!!
