Share Your Light Night
Our 7th Annual Share Your Light Night is scheduled for Saturday, December 13th, 6-8 pm. The Mounted Police will be present to escort Santa through our streets. We have five Celebration Stations planned, serving hot chocolate and goodies, at the following locations:
- Stonehaven & Beaufain
- Marble Trail
- Lisa Ct.
- Blue Knob Ct.
- End of Beaufain
The civic league will be decorating the medians with luminaries and we encourage you to decorate your streets too.
We are looking for sponsors for this popular event. The cost to sponsor lights for our medians is $50, and $100 to sponsor a Celebration Station. Contact CACL@cox.net about sponsorships.
We will also be having a food Drive during Share Your Light Night. There will be baskets at the Celebration Stations to collect non-perishable foods for Elijah's Pantry, sponsored by Atlantic Shores Baptist Church (where we hold our civic league meetings). Please be sure to bring a few items to help those who are less fortunate.
Pay Your Dues Online with Paypal
Dues are $15 per year per family, due in January. The money goes toward the entrance signs (repair and landscaping around them), the newsletters, Neighborhood Watch, annual picnics, Share Your Light Night, neighborhood clean-up supplies, advertisement for our yard sales & meetings, and CCO dues, among other things. It is a small investment for a nicer neighborhood!
