Another successful Carnival has come and gone. This was my 19th West U Carnival and each year it seems to get bigger and better. This couldn’t happen without a plethora of volunteers. Kudos to all of the parents, teachers, and staff who manned a booth or completed some other task to help. Special thanks to all of the local businesses who lent their sponsorship to our Carnival. We also appreciate our neighbors in the 3700 block of University for their forbearance as we closed down their street for most of the day Saturday. We want to especially recognize our Boo-Bash Carnival Tri-Chairs Suzanne Faulk, Amy Sahely, and Courtney Coffman for their tireless work to organize this event. Well done!
Special thanks to the Cities of West University Place and Bellaire Fire Departments for presenting a Fire Prevention Program to our boys and girls. October is Fire Prevention Month. This year’s theme is: 2014 Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month. For more information about smoke alarms and home fire safety, visit The National Fire Protection Association’s website at: http://www.nfpa.org/safety-information/for-consumers/fire-and-safety-equipment/smoke-alarms
Have a notable week!
