As summer comes to an end please take a look around your property so that our neighborhood stays clean and attractive. If you have any appliances that have refrigerants in their systems (refrigerators, air conditioners, freezers) that need to be discarded please call Deffenbaugh Disposal, 631-3300, and ask for Residential Dispatch.
Disposal of large items such as furniture, appliances, ten tires (without rims) and unlimited number of trash containers may be placed curbside to be picked up with your weekly trash collection.
Sept. 28th, Oct. 26 and Nov. 16th are free disposal days at the Forest View Landfill, 4800 Kaw Drive for Wyandotte County residents (ID required). For information call Forest View Landfill (913) 573-5400. If you have a tree that needs to be trimmed up this would be a great time to work on this project.
The UG Target-of-the-Month is Graffiti. The only graffiti I have to report is in the park, so let me know if there are other areas: 371-4895. Thanks for all your help.

Calling All Ghouls and Goblins

Our annual Halloween Parade and neighborhood trick-or-treating will be held on Wednesday, October 30th, starting at 6 p.m. Each year the number of families participating has grown, and we expect quite a large turnout this year. Because of this, the children's event committee is asking for volunteers to step forward a little earlier this year. In particular, we are asking families who participate to volunteer assistance.
We need:
> Parade supervisors
> Refreshment table assistants
> Game organizers
> Judges for the costume contest
If you can help us out, please call Kim Hannigan at 371-7065. Two of your neighbors have handled most of the children's events for the past two years. They need your support if events like the Halloween Parade, the Christmas Party and the Easter Egg Hunt are to continue!
