CenterPoint Forum, October 15 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A moderated forum, featuring two CenterPoint officials, has been scheduled to discuss power restoration in the wake of Hurricane Ike.  The forum will be held October 15 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott from 7 to 9 p.m. 

Officials will begin with a 15-minute statement from CenterPoint.  Following this statement, residents will be able to submit questions in writing to be asked at the forum.  Time will also be set aside for residents to ask the representatives questions directly.

We appreciate all of you coming out to the Fall season of the Farmer's Market.
October Yard of the Month Winner Announced 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Steve & Linda Verhalen have enjoyed living in The Woodlands since 1988 and in their Autumnwood neighborhood since 1995. Linda enjoys her time in the yard, attending to the annuals and perennials that keep the scene colorful, while keeping a constant vigil over the falling leaves, branches and pine straw that are a challenge to the homeowners lucky enough to call The Woodlands home.
 
A wide assortment of ornamental trees, shrubs and flowers decorate the Verhalen's shady yard. Among them are Impatiens, Potato Vine, assorted Ferns, Iris, Camellia Japonica, Camellia Sasanqua, Goldust Aucuba, Azaleas and Aspidistra. For the more sunny locations in the yard, Linda selected Nandina Compacta, Brunsfelsia (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow), Viburnum, assorted Liriopes, ornamental grasses, Knockout Roses, Iris and for annual color she chose Petunias, Zinnias and Silvia, among others.
 
It is evident the Verhalens take pride in their house and yard and encourage others to "Take Up The Banner" and show pride in The Woodlands by keeping their yards neat and clean. Also, be safe by meeting and greeting the neighbors and appreciate all of the opportunities available in The Woodlands.  
 
Congratulations to Steve & Linda on their award.  The October 2008 Yard of the Month was chosen by Sally Johnson.
