Fall is here.

How silently they tumble down
Since this week is a particularly slow news week, I decided to share a few poems with you that I enjoyed about the changing of seasons we are experiencing now. Autumn is almost here, which means beautifully colored leaves, chilly weather, and HALLOWEEN! So don’t forget to enjoy autumn before it slowly fades away to a bitterly cold winter!
Skyler Jon Bennett Benefit
Skyler Jon was born January 27, 2007 with a rare birth defect called Gastroschisis. This birth defect caused Skyler’s stomach and intestines to be displaced outside his body. Please come to this fun event to help support this family and help out with the expensive medical costs. Skyler is the son of Jon and Kristyn Bennett. He is the grandson of Renee Sheehan and Wes Redden.

Community Attitude Surveys
Volunteers from the City of Weeping Water will be distributing Community Attitude Surveys between September 17th and 27th. City Officials are requesting community participation and cooperation in cooperation in completing the survey, which is a crucial step in seeking funding from local, regional, state, and federal funding to plan and complete a variety of community and economic development projects. Such improvements may include, but are not limited to, street improvement, water and sewer system improvements, housing rehabilitation activities, cultural, park and recreation improvements, planning studies and economic development initiatives. Many of these programs require a local match, which is why city officials want to know what areas or issues residents feel are in need of improvement. Community input will allow city officials to more officially allocate limited resources for maximum public benefit. All survey results will be kept confidential and will be tabulated by an independent professional organization. Compiled results of the survey will by discussed at a public meeting to be scheduled in October of 2007. These surveys are very important for our town, make sure to take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to help out the community. Any questions or concerns regarding the survey may be directed to City Hall at 267-5152.
