Easter Egg Hunt Easter comes early this year:

By Cindy Barry (Cindy Barry works with homeless kids going to Round Rock High School) All, this is the first year I did not have to pick who was going to be left out because I did not have the resources to cover their needs - thanks to Fern Bluff Elementary, Stone Canyon and Fern Bluff Home Owners. Thanks to your generous donations this year, I was able to cover 136 students and their families this holiday season with holiday meals (114 from donations from Fern Bluff). The meals included a frozen turkey, a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, a frozen pie, a box of stuffing, 2 cans of vegetables, 1 can of gravy, 1 alum. pan, pre-made mashed potatoes. Here is the break-down: • 53 meals purchased with HEB cards • 31 meals purchased with Wal-mart cards • 22 meals purchased with Target cards • 7 meals purchased with cash • 1 meal purchased with a Visa gift card 4 packages of men’s underwear purchased with TJ Maxx gift card. (These were split between 3 teenage boys living at the Texas Baptist Home who go to Round Rock High School). They are living there temporarily until we can find a more permanent place. Once they turn 18, they have to leave, which will be soon, before the school year is up. Copyright © 2013 Peel, Inc.

We will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt this year on Saturday, March 23rd. We’ll meet at the Fern Bluff Park on Park Valley Drive, next to Fern Bluff Elementary and the tennis courts, no later than 9:45am. The hunt will being promptly at 10:00am. If you would like to volunteer to stuff eggs, hide eggs, help serve lunch or monitor the Bounce House, please email or call Laura Kouns at lbkouns63@gmail.com or 733-1659. Rain Out date is Sunday March 24.

Stone Canyon Neighborhood Watch (Continued from Cover Page) proven to be the fastest and most effective means of bringing attention to and sharing information about what’s going on. Our Neighborhood Watch network is THE major weapon we can use against anyone who threatens our community. It’s our way of staying aware and keeping our neighborhood the safe place we want and need it to be for each other and our families. *Note: Not all safety concerns involve people from outside our community. Neighborhood safety also includes reporting to our county Sheriff’s department, anyone or anything that has the potential to harm people or pets. Some of our residents have reported use of BB guns, apparently causing the death of at least one newborn owl. Other incidents have resulted in BB pellets being fired into planters and other items close to windows and doors. This type of activity is especially dangerous in a heavily populated community of homes situated as close to each other as ours. Important Info to Post: Lt. James David, Deputy with Williamson County Sheriff’s Law Enforcement Bureau, is active in patrolling our neighborhood. He’s requested we post his contact info, in the event of an emergency, home or auto burglary, or any suspicious persons or activity: • (512) 943-1300 • FAX: (512) 260-4225/238-2114 • e-mail: JDavid@wilco.org Lt David also stresses: first and foremost consider your own safety; don’t confront unless you have to. DO call police. Even if a suspected perpetrator is gone, it’s necessary to file a police report. If possible, please notify your Block Captain and your neighbors so the word can be passed through our N.Watch network as quickly as possible. Thank you.
