Looks like things are happening all around the Valley. We are seeing submissions for park activities coming in and fall and Christmas events plans are already being made. It’s an exciting time of year – the beginning of the season.

We love this time of year for multiple reasons. But a big reason is seeing what you all are up to in the parks and your community. This time of year, we see Halloween parades and costume contests and dances. In fact, we get to attend one next week. We always get to see the photos, but now we get to have some fun with you.

We love seeing those photos too. So, if you have a costume contest at your park or decorating contest, send some photos in with your information. We would love to share them.

I know many of you hold Veterans Day activities for your residents. If you are holding an event or would like to share photos of your event, send them our way.

Also, Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This also means a lot of parks start having canned food drives and other events to help out the local food bank or other charities like Loaves and Fishes. These are events we like to see as well.

Let us know what you are doing in your community. These small acts mean the world to our Valley communities, and we love to share the good things you are doing. By sharing what you are doing, it also gives other parks ideas on what they can do, if they aren’t already doing something, or if you are helping a charity they haven’t heard of before.

Please let us know what you are doing out there. If we can make it to one of your events, we will be there. It’s hard to get to everyone though, so be sure to let us know ahead of time so we can plan on getting out there as much as we can. We love spending time with you and enjoying your joy.

It’s always a pleasure to work with you and learn about you.

If you have something fun to share, send it our way. You can email your news items, or ideas, to news@wintertexantimes.com.

We look forward to a wonderful and fun season, let us share your activities and happiness with our readers.
