The 4th of July Parade A big Success
The 4th of July Parade and Party was enjoyed by about 60 people as they ate delicious food from TJ’s Dawg House Food Truck and participated in games and fellowship. Thanks to our police department for the parade escort and to City Council member Joe Corcoran for stopping by! The water balloon toss was a big hit providing some relief on the hot day! Congratulations to the parade, costume and game winners!

Hot Chocolate in the Park February 5th 2:00-4:00 p.m.
When we think of February, we think of African American History Month, President’s Day and, of course, Valentine’s Day. But did you know that during the month of February there are five days dedicated to chocolate celebration? On the 1st we have National Dark Chocolate Day, World Nutella Day on the 5th, National Chocolate Mint Day on the 19th, National Chocolate Covered Nut Day on the 25th and finally National Chocolate Souffle Day on the 28th. And honestly, we could add Valentine’s Day to the list since a box of chocolates is a common gift for Valentine’s Day.
If you are like us, you don’t need a reason to celebrate chocolate, but it sure is sweet to have one! So, for the love of chocolate, come have hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies with your neighbors on Saturday, February 5th, 2:00 pm-4:00 pm at the Glenville Park Pavilion. Free of charge!
