Upcoming Fall 2016 Events

Halloween Parade in the Park – October 31

Our annual Halloween Parade is coming soon and changing venues! Everyone is invited to attend to watch all our spooky goblins, pretty princesses, and mighty warriors strut their stuff along the trails in the park. Our littlest neighbors will have a chance to show off their costumes in the parade, dance along to some fun tunes, and even get some prizes before they head out into the neighborhood. The fun will begin at 6:00 PM in the park green space, followed by Trick or Treating around the neighborhood beginning at 7:00 PM.

We’re looking for volunteers to help set up and clean up so that parents can take their kids directly out to Trick or Treating. If you are available and want to help, please contact Haley Bankey at haleynbankey@gmail.com.

 

Haunted Halloween Yard Contest

Who has the spookiest decorations? Who has the most whimsical? This year, everyone is invited and encouraged to go crazy with Halloween decorations! Not only will our neighborhood look festive and fun, but you’ll have a chance to win a $50 gift card to Target for the best Halloween Yard.  Members from our ACC (Architectural Change Committee) will be selecting one special yard for the prize which will be announced at the Annual Halloween Parade.  Don’t miss out!

 

Winter Night in the Park

The neighborhood asked, and here’s your answer! After the success of our National Night Out, members of our community requested a winter event to bring us back into community.  Watch for more information on a Winter Night in the Park to take place during November or early December.  Details are coming soon!

If you would like to be a part of making this night happen, please contact Haley Bankey at haleynbankey@gmail.com.   It will all be super simple, and will make for a great community event!

 

Holiday Yard Decor Contest

As the air gets more crisp, and the December holidays get closer, we encourage all residents to participate in decorating their homes and yards in a festive way. Whether it’s to celebrate your faith or to enjoy some sparkling lights, yard decorations are great way to spread some holiday cheer.  This year, our ACC will be selecting one winning yard for ‘best decorations’ to win a $50 Target gift card. It’s going to be a fabulous winter in Knollcreek!

Community Celebrations (October 2016)

Clean Up Day with ACC

On Saturday, August 27th, Knollcreek neighbor Grant Gaul organized a community clean up day for the Knollcreek main drive. A small group of residents including Nicole Nagle and her son Jayden, Stuart Bankey, and Michael Litwin worked with Grant to clean up a large number of protruding rocks from the greenways along Knollcreek Drive. It was a lot of hard work but it made the street look much nicer and made it easier for our lawn care company to address their work on the boulevard. Thank you to everyone who participated in the event!

 

Community Garage Sale Success!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in this fall’s Community Garage Sale.  We hope it was a fruitful day for everyone who took part. Please mark your calendars for the next Community Garage Sale which is scheduled for April 1st & 2nd of 2017.

 

National Night Out Event – Thanks to All!

What a fun night! Over 50 residents from around Knollcreek had a great time connecting with one another and our local police department. We grilled up some hot dogs, played yard games on the greens, got to know one another, and our kiddos even received treats from our local police department! It was a great time that could not have happened without tons of community involvement.

Thank you to everyone who came and everyone who helped out: Renee Baker, Haley Bankey, Katie Barbera, John Brian, Justin Clark, Charles Farnsworth, Jeff Hamel, Sybille Hamilton, Michael Litwin, Kirsten Northrup, Cheryl Olivieri, Kate Puentes, Allison Rogers, Alvi Story, and Michelle Schwartz.  If you helped out, but aren’t named here, thanks so much for your contribution! We’re looking forward to many more great community events.

Snakes on a Lawn

With the wet spring, we’ve been seeing an increase in the number of snakes being found in residents’ yards and caught by lawnmowers. Please make sure to keep your lawn mown, and your landscape beds well tended.  A few of the snake reports are for coral snakes, which are venomous. If you encounter a snake, and do not know if it is venomous or not, please consider calling a local company for snake removal.  Here is a resource to help identify any you may find: http://www.texassnakeid.com/.
