Garbage Service Suspended for January 28
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Waste Management suspended residential trash, recycling and green waste service for Tuesday, January 28, 2014 due to weather conditions. 
 
The current operational plan will be similar to holidays where all services are pushed back one day for the rest of the week.
 

 

Grogan's Mill Farmer's Market Tailgate Party this Saturday
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are you ready for some Football???  Even though the Texans didn't quite make it to the Big Game, we're still going to celebrate the most popular unofficial National Holiday......Super Bowl Weekend!  Don't miss the Grogan's Mill Farmer's Market Super Bowl tailgate party next Saturday, February 1 from 8AM till noon at the Grogan's Mill shopping Center.

 

Enjoy free breakfast tacos earlier in the morning from Taco USA, and pizza from Brother's a little later, along with orange juice and sodas.   For the kids, we'll have a bouncy house and football themed face painting.  Plus, we haven't forgotten the adults! A representative from Houston's own St. Arnold's brewery will be providing complimentary samples of their locally brewed beer.  

 

In addition to all this football-lovin' fun, wear an NFL Jersey (any team) to the market and claim your $2-off coupon, good for purchases at any of our vendor's booths.  Limit 3 per family.  Stop by the market booth to collect your coupons.

If you didn't make it to Arbor Day we will also have some free saplings that were left over.


Good Neighbor Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Neighborhood Watch will be holding a Good Neighbor Day in Grogan's Mill Village for Painted Cup Court.  Neighbors will meet on Februrary 8th, from 10am - 11:30am in the cul-de-sac in front of 18 Painted Cup.  For more information, please contact Neighborhood Specialist Paula Paciorek at 281-210-3887.
 
Support Your Local Businesses
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An unfortunate side effect of the construction on Grogan's Mill Road is that the business owners in the Grogan's Mill Village Center have told us that they have seen their sales drop substantially. 
So when you are considering going out to eat, grocery shop, get a haircut, manicure, etc., please consider visiting the great restaurants and businesses that are located in the Grogan's Mill Village Center and support local.

 

Plastic Paradise Screening, Feb. 27
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tickets are on sale now for a screening of Plastic Paradise which will be shown at Cinemark at Market Street
February 27 at 7:30 P.M.
Hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church
 
Environmental Services will have information and a useful give-away and the Plastic Bag Monster will make an appearance.  
 
Tickets must be purchased online at the above link by February 20th. This award winning movie shows the impact of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch on wildlife in that area and provides the imperative for change in some of our throw-away habits.
