This time of year brings much change and excitement as we enter the holiday season and final weeks of 2023. The temperature has dropped, falling leaves surround us, and we prepare to spend time with loved ones throughout the upcoming holidays.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the opportunity to continue serving as your Mayor for the next four years. I am humbled to serve our great community and look forward to the positive collaboration with City Council and Administration.
I am pleased to share that the Highland Heights Fire Department won the Judge's Award for Best Chili at the Community Partnership on Aging's Famous Fire Department Chili Cook-off held at the end of October. We are extremely proud of this recognition, and all credit goes to the chefs in the Fire Department who made the delicious chili.
Now that the Police and Fire Department staff have moved back into their respective buildings, the city will officially host an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, December 1, 2023, to showcase the renovation of this building. This event will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Please see full details in this e-newsletter.
One of my favorite events of the year also takes place on December 1st, and it is the City of Highland Heights' Annual Community Holiday Lighting. Please join me and my friends, Santa and Mrs. Claus, Rudolph, and Frosty, as we light up the Municipal Complex on Friday, December 1st from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
As we celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, enjoy the company of loved ones and friends that surround you at the table, and cherish the memories and blessings that this day brings.
