Silver & Gold ... a Louisville Christmas 2004
The Louisville Jaycees and the Louisville BUILD Group will begin next week to dress Louisville in it's finest holiday clothes.

Beginning this year, a common theme has been suggested for holiday decoration and this year the theme will be
Silver & Gold.

We hope to show visitors, neighbors, and friends that this is a community that lives and works together. Louisville is an especially attractive City during this beautiful and peaceful time of the year! Lets show it in it's best suit of holiday clothes!
Yes,  I know it is very late..   We will be better prepared in coming years, but for now.. anything that you can do to show a bit of the community theme colors in your shop windows, on your home or in your front yards will help us write this first chapter.

Seth Chapmans
Patriotic - Eagle Scout Project
Recently Seth Chapman appeared before the BUILD Meeting of the Business Community and spoke about an idea that has brought unanimous appreciation;
Louisville Should Offer to Retire Old and Worn Flags with the Dignity they Deserve.

At Seth's request collection sites have been established and his program is now underway.
Here is his message to Louisville:
Old, Worn Out American Flags Needed
For Eagle Scout Project
Flag Retirement Ceremony
"Please bring your old, faded, worn out flags to the collection boxes by Wednesday, November 10th. The collection boxes are set up at Home State Bank, Louisville City Offices and Berner Real Estate. Seth Chapman 234-2222

Have a look around, collect what you have and bring it this weekend to the collection sites that Seth has established!

2004 Third Annual Gift Basket Raffle
(Remember Last Year, Click HERE)

It is again time to gather donations for the Annual Gift Basket Raffle.

As we did last year, the donations will be divided into 3 separate baskets of similar value to be raffled on December 20, 2004. Donations usually consist of items from your inventory, promotional items or gift certificates from your business.

Should you wish to give cash, the money will be put towards purchase of savings bonds.
As we will be displaying the baskets at Home State Bank beginning the weekend after Thanksgiving, please have your donations ready for pick up by November 22, 2004. Or you may drop your donations off at Home State Bank or Stander Hardware prior to that date. If you have any questions, suggestions, comments or want to help..

please contact Maureen Gulizia - Stander Hardware 234-3355
Irina Harrington - WireBuilt 234-2085

Money raised this year will go towards decorations for the community Christmas decorations.

Thank You for helping to make the Annual Basket Raffle a successful fund raiser every year!

A Note from Dee... to Thee.....

Happy Fall!!! Can you believe itís November? Before you know it, the city crew will be pushing snow; I know you didnít want to hear that! Hopefully, we wonít have as much snow as last year.

By the way, did you know it is against city code to push snow from your property onto the city street? Also, remember that no vehicles should be parked on the streets during snow removal.

It is really hard to push snow around cars left in the streets, besides; itís harder for you to dig out!!

FALL CLEANUP IS NOVEMBER 13TH. Alternate date is November 20.

Cleanup is in the city maintenance yard from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great benefit offered by the city and Waste Management to get rid of leaves, yard waste and all that stuff taking up space in your home or yard.

The JayCees will be happy to assist any elderly people with the cleanup.

Please call Heidi Warner at 234-3170 if you need help. Thanks in advance for helping to clean up Louisville.

Donít forget to VOTE on November 2, 2004. Everyone votes at the Senior Center and the hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

One of the questions you voted for was whether to change from a ward basis to an at-large basis for the selection of the city council members. You voted YES and so from now on you will be choosing four City Council members from the whole town instead of 2 from the West and 2 from the East.

For this election, we still had wards. Steve Sherman ran unopposed in the west ward and Roger Behrns was the registered write-in candidate in the east ward.

Mayor Pankonin ran unopposed.

The Senior Center is available to rent for parties and gatherings. Just call the city office for prices and availability.

The Seniors would like to invite everyone to their Covered Dish Dinners the first Monday of the month at noon. Also, everyone is invited to Biscuits & Gravy the last Saturday of the month from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

The food is always great and you canít beat the price.

The JayCees will again be sponsoring the Angel Tree for underprivileged children this Holiday Season. The tree will be set up at Home State Bank. Call Deb Cunningham if you have any questions at 944-2349.

Hereís a gentle reminder: The city now has a humane officer, so to avoid violations and fines, keep your dogs and cats confined to your own property and keep the noise to a minimum.

If a resident chooses to be animal-free, they shouldnít have to clean up after otherís pets or listen to them endlessly. Letís be considerate of our neighbors.

The Mayor, city council, and city employees would like to invite all residents to attend a Holiday Open House to be held Friday, December 17, 2003 at City Hall. Cookies, coffee and punch will be served from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The High School Show Choir will perform at 12:15.
The City Hall will be closed on the following dates during the holidays:

November 25 & 26, 2004
December 23 & 24, 2004
December 30 & 31, 2004

Your name: Theresa Baker
Your news: Just wanted to say a big Thank You, Again, for everybody that was involved in the Memorial Day parade at the beginning of the summer, and who has - in general- been a supporter for Trent while I have been gone.
I am trying to lock it down, but it looks like I will be home right before or right after Thanksgiving this year, but regardless, DEFINITELY in time for Christmas!

Again . . . Please convey my thanks to those of you who just let me know that you were there for me, and for anyone who has been there for my son (and Ashley and the babies, too, of course).
I look forward to seeing you all, and if it is after the holidays, may you all have a bright and happy one!
