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 jennierose1@gmail.com 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

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.

Please mark your calendars now for the RCHCA Spring meeting, which will take place from 7:30 – 9:00 pm on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at Silver Creek Middle School.

UPDATE: Please see our April 2019 Newsletter for agenda items.

A newsletter with a formal agenda will be prepared and distributed before the meeting date.  Among matters we currently expect to address will be an update on the water main replacement project that is currently in progress in our neighborhood, and its impact on the timing of future discussion of road safety improvements and further evaluation community needs and views about potential sidewalk construction.

Additionally, we anticipate discussing the planning and scheduling of community events, and opportunities that we are exploring to permit residents to officially remove unlawfully discriminatory terms from neighborhood covenants.
We look forward to see you all there.
