November Newsletter

October has been beautiful this year! The leaves have been and still are spectacular with their radiant yellows, reds, and oranges. Even with October now over, the leaves are still hanging around and waiting on you to come up and see them. Not only have the leaves been beautiful this fall, the weather has been out of this world! This October has been exceptionally warm with temperatures in the high 60’s to low 70’s and no rain. Trick or Treating in Highlands was another success and the weather being perfect. Just because October is over, our season, spectacular leaves, end of season sales, hiking, and thousands of other things to do is not over yet.

To start out the month, Rotary Club will have a BINGO night. This will take place at the Community Building on 4th Street.

On November 11th, the Rotary Club will be hosting a Veteran’s Day Celebration at the Kelsey-Hutchinson Park starting at 11:00 a.m. The ice skating rink should be going up soon so make plans to tie on those skate and give it a whirl!

It’s almost time for Christmas! The Highlands’ Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place on Main Street on Saturday, November 26th at 6:30 p.m. Bring your family out to sing Christmas Carols while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and cookies.
