Oh Where Oh Where Should My Little Car Park? – Not on the street during snow season!! Please be careful to avoid parking on the street during the snow season. Please park in your driveway or garage to avoid being in the path of snow removal vehicles and to avoid damage to your vehicle. Be careful not to park too close to intersections and other people’s driveways. Remember parking on common driveways is never allowed. There is not only the possibility of snow, but it has also been very windy. Please secure your trash inside the can so the trash does not blow around the neighborhood. Please bring trash cans inside as soon as possible after pick up to prevent the can from blowing into the street and being in the way of emergency or snow removal vehicles. Used Greeting Card Drive – A local Daisy Scout troop is collecting used, leftover, or new greeting cards (i.e. Birthday, Holiday, Thank You, etc.) They will send them to the St. Jude’s Ranch, which will use the recycled cards to make new ones. Proceeds from selling the new cards will directly benefit the hospital. If you have any cards that you would like to donate, there is a donation box at the BCA office. For more details on this project, please go to http://www.stjudesranch.org/shop/recycled-card-program/ and any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
