Thank you to
everyone who participated in or assisted in making this years Twinkle Light
Parade a huge success. The parade went off without a hitch and everyone had a
great time, enjoying the floats, caroling, hot chocolate and the snow. We saw several large groups of neighbors who
had gathered along the route enjoying each other’s company. The number of
children was the largest ever both along the route, and at Memorial Drive
Presbyterian Church. The snow play area was packed with children and adults
alike. I even saw several officers throwing
snowballs and having fun. A special
thanks to Bunker Hill city staff for all of the coordination and to MDPC for opening
up their facility. Also, to the Memorial Villages Police Foundation for
sponsoring the MVPD float and the snow area. I have attached a few pictures from
the parade to the weekly report. There will be additional pictures being
posted on the MVPD Facebook page over the coming days.
visiting with residents last night at the parade I received a very interesting comment
from a couple that has recently moved to the area. They were telling me how
much they enjoyed the parade and how special the parade was because the parade
occurred right in the community. They stated that usually, you have to drive
downtown or to a commercial area in order to see a parade. They especially
enjoyed the Villages parade because it was right in their backyard where
the backdrop was the area decorated homes, and not an “Arby’s”. They said the
parade was nicer being held in a community of million-dollar homes and not
along a street of strip malls. I have to say, I agree.
we were serenaded by a group of young women (students) from Magnolia School who
stopped by the MVPD and dropped off cookies and other goodies and to sing
Christmas songs to our staff. Thank you.

The "Stormy Rock" has not yet been located and returned to the MVPD. (See attached picture of the rock). If you find the rock, return it to the MVPD and you will receive a Stormy Doll for her return. Stormy is lost somewhere on Hunters Creek City Hall Property. Search near the bottom of one of the many trees where she likes to lay and help get her home. Good Luck.
