Merry Oaks meeting, then a potluck

The general fall meeting for the Merry Oaks Neighborhood Association is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at Merry Oaks Elementary School. Topics will include the regular police report, tree banding, and area development.

Two days later, the annual potlock/social party follows at 6 p.m. Saturday at Cate's house, 2301 Arnold Drive, in the back yard. Bring a portable chair if you have one. If your house number ends in an even number, bring an hors d'oeuvres or side dish; if an odd number, bring a dessert. Someone will be grilling: if you prefer veggie burgers, feel free to bring your own for the grill.

It's a busy time of the year, but the party is a great time to meet diverse neighbors. If you have other commitments, feel free to just drop in briefly and say hi. We have lots of new neighbors, and it's a great way to strengthen community ties.

The party is a fine time for political candidates to visit informally with local voters as well; some might show up.
