Backflow Testing

Yay!  We have a large enough group for a reduced rate for Backflow Testing.  Call Eddie Smith with The Lawn Smith (more info about Eddie here) at 359-1229 to schedule your backflow test for $25.  Eddie is licensed and has been in business since 1982.

Save the Dates!

Trick-Or-Treat for the neighborhood will be on October 31st at dusk/dark so have lots of candy ready!  A porch light on or off has traditionally been a great signal to trick-or-treaters whether to come knocking.  After going through our neighborhood, if your little ones are still going strong, the houses on Holly Road and in Brookshire Commons are also great places to find treats!

The Costume Party/Fall Potluck will be on Saturday, November 3rd at 5:00.  The kids will be thrilled that they get to dress up one more time.  Yummy food and friendly fellowship will just be a quick walk away!  Check back...more details to follow soon!

The Neighborhood Yard Sale will be Saturday, November 10 from 7 am-until.  There is no cost to participate, but please let Kari Bryant know if you are planning to put up a table so we can advertise accordingly.  She will have a sign-up sheet at the Potluck.

Howdy Neighbor!

If you are reading this, you received this blog address in your mailbox and you were curious to see what the heck it was!  Yay!  Welcome to your neighborhood blog! We hope you will stick that card on your fridge and save this site in your Favorites!
Let me be the first to say that we have felt the COMMUNITY of Brookshire recently more than ever. After having Baby Lucy at the beginning of August, neighbors have gone out of their way to help, meals, calls, sidewalk chats, etc.  We have lived here almost five years and Justin and I were just saying that we really feel part of a community now more than ever!  (One sweet neighbor even mowed our grass in the August heat!  How sweet was that?!)

We hope this blog can be a gathering place for our neighborhood to grow closer, whether it be the next Neighborhood Yard Sale date or a birth announcement of a new little neighbor!
