Annual Halloween Parade/Pot Luck – 10/27/19

By | Social Events

The crisp, fall weather is right around the corner…and so is our annual RCHCA all-neighbors-welcome Halloween party. 
Scheduled for Sunday, October 27, we need volunteers to take the reigns on this annual event, or sadly it will not happen this year. 
Erica Weiss, Randi Wortman and I planned this event for the past three years and have an easy playbook for you to follow so you can maximize the fun — with very little work. 

Email me at if you can help keep this tradition going for our neighborhood. Great opportunity for some of our new neighbors and young families to work together to continue this great community event. 
Thanks, Jennie RosenbergWake Drive

Subject: FW: Concerns About Beltway Expansion

Here is a link to beltway expansion, map of estimated impacts

Additionally, the dashed red line (which marks where noise is expected to exceed legal limits) shows a group of houses on Raymoor Rd and Old Spring Road that fall within an area where unlawful levels of noise are expected and other house situated right at the worst sound levels allowed.

Please see the attached letter re Beltway expansion concerns. This and other issues will be discussed at our May 22, 2019 RCHCA Spring meeting at Silver Creek Middle School.

The Spring party is on — rain or shine. 
As we have access to the cabin, we will plan to host inside if the weather doesn’t clear up. 
I believe someone asked about the Paella lady yesterday and why she wasn’t at the Farmer Market.  Maybe because she was busy making our food….we will have lots of delicious Paella!
So even if the weather is bad, swing by the cabin for a bit and have some dinner. 
Still hope to see you all there!
