Blossoms are busting out in the midst of the cold, bleak winter. At Halloween, the Town of Laurel and the Laurel Police Department sponsored the 1st annual Town Trunk or Treat. Hundreds of children and their parents in a line a half block long made their way among the many scary displays as they filled their trick or treat bags with delicious candy giveaways. Businesses, churches and organizations donated the treats and provided volunteers to dispense the goodies.
The season's last crops are being harvested, students are getting their back packs ready, and our daylight hours are getting shorter. These are all signs that once again we are transitioning from summer to fall. I hope everyone has had a fun filled summer. As I look around our community I see many positive changes taking place.
I am very pleased that now that we have Alexis Oliphant on board as our Operations Manager and that she and Town Manager Jamie Smith have found a way to reactivate our Town Newsletter. Hopefully, this medium will add to the communications between Mayor and Council and the public.
The Town of Laurel mails newsletters to all our property owners and residents three times a year. The newsletters include town events, school events, organization events, historical information, town ordinances, etc. The newsletters are sent out in the Winter, Spring/Summer and Fall.
