“The weather is warming up, and signs of spring are everywhere. We look forward to all the coming months will hold in our community, including ENHANCE initiative activities and the opening of our first grocery store, Publix, and the Shops at Pike Road. The commitment our citizens, local businesses, schools, and service partners have shown to public health and safety has allowed progress to continue in the Town of Pike Road. Our town's commitment to planning, quality of life, services and education have been the foundation of our success. With our continued focus on these fundamentals, the future is bright, and we are very excited about all of the possibilities that are around the corner in Pike Road.

We are thankful for the continued expansion of access to the COVID-19 vaccine across our state and county. However, this is an ongoing process, and we encourage you to remain aware of both opportunities to receive the vaccine and the continued risk of COVID-19 in our community. To continue moving forward through the challenges of COVID-19, we need to follow the simple, healthy practices we know can help keep our community safe. Please practice 6-foot social distancing, frequent and thorough handwashing, and avoid crowd situations. It is also so important to have a face mask available to wear in public spaces and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect yourself, your family, and all of our neighbors, and the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through March 5.

 

Thank you, Pike Road, for your engagement in the variety of community activities presented through our ENHANCE initiative. As we wrap up several opportunities to connect and learn, we look forward to all that is coming our way. Today, we had a great group join the virtual Alabama Native Trees Ag & Stewardship Workshop, and we are excited to continue celebrating Alabama Arbor Week with a Seedling Giveaway beginning Mar. 2. This weekend is the last chance to enjoy the Pike Road Arts Council’s Cloudscapes Art Show by appointment at the Pike Road Arts Center, but the PRAC will soon begin accepting work for their spring show, It Isn’t Easy Being Green. Businessmen and women from across our community are invited to register now for the first Lunch & Learn of 2021, Virtual Manners Matter. This webinar, presented on Mar. 5 in partnership with Troy University Continuing Outreach & Education, will offer guidance for professionalism and efficiency in our virtual world and the opportunity to meet and learn alongside our neighbors. Visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to learn about these events and more.

 

As a reminder, due to the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, Town facilities remain closed to public visitors. We want to emphasize that we continue to be ready and available to serve you, and our team is accessible via phone and email.  You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We look forward to serving you!

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Thank you for all you do: Together, we will come through this.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

“Throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been blessed to work with outstanding partners whose dedication ensures that our daily lives were affected as little as possible. For their hard work and commitment, we want to say thank you. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office team, our local volunteer fire departments, and all of our first responders continue to serve with efficiency and care, often at their own risk. AmWaste, our sanitation service partner, adapted to the needs of our community as we spent more time at home. Our utility providers continue to ensure we receive excellent service amid the challenges of both the pandemic and winter weather. Our local businesses continue to find innovative ways to safely serve the community, and partners like the Alabama Cooperative Extension System have worked with us to continue providing virtual ENHANCE initiative quality of life programming for everyone. Not to mention, the leadership, teachers, and staff of Pike Road Schools have innovated and adapted to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn safely throughout this time. Thank you for all you do, and thank you, Pike Road, for your support and engagement.

 

As we move forward, we are excited to see access to the COVID-19 vaccine continue to expand, but it is important to recognize that the pandemic is an ongoing challenge.

Now, veterans in the care of CAVHCS will receive a token of your appreciation love this Valentine’s Day! We hope you will tune in to the Feb. 16 edition of our monthly radio show, from 12 – 1 p.m. on WTXK 107.5 FM/1210 AM, to hear about all the exciting things coming up.

“Thank you, Pike Road, for the way you continue to safely engage and support one another. We are excited by the opportunities the coming spring season will offer, and your involvement makes it all possible. February is Black History Month, and we encourage you to explore the history that surrounds us in the River Region. From visiting the Mural Wall to learn about local history – including the contributions of Ms. Georgia Washington – to taking a virtual tour of the Rosa Parks Museum at Troy University, there are many resources available in our area to learn about the individuals and events that helped move us toward the lives we enjoy today.

 

We are thankful that access to the COVID-19 vaccine continues to expand, and we appreciate your patience as local health providers work with Alabama Public Health to administer these vaccines. In the meantime, we encourage you to please continue to take the simple precautions that we know can help keep our community safe. Social distancing, frequent and thorough handwashing, and avoiding crowd situations are very important.

Through Feb. 12, we encourage you to participate in our annual Valentines for Veterans Card Drive. Show your appreciation for our local veterans by dropping off a handmade or store-bought card with a kind note at Town Hall or Founders Station all week.

"This week, Governor Kay Ivey and Dr. Scott Harris announced updates to the Safer at Home order, extending all requirements and guidelines through March 5, 2021. Thank you, Pike Road, for the safe, smart approach you have utilized throughout the ongoing COVID-19 challenge and allow the Safer at Home extension to serve as a reminder of the importance of these precautions. As communities across the country continue the vaccination process, it is still vitally important that we protect the health of ourselves and our neighbors until this process is completed. In order to continue enjoying the activities we love, we encourage everyone to remain dedicated to health and safety.

There are several simple precautions we know can make a difference. Please pay attention to social distancing, and maintain a 6-foot distance from those outside of your household. Practicing frequent and thorough handwashing and sanitation of high-traffic surfaces helps keep everyone healthy. Crowds and large gatherings pose a particular risk of the spread of COVID-19. Please avoid these situations whenever possible. In addition, it is vital to have a face mask available to wear in public and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through March 5. 

 

We look forward to safely engaging with you in a variety of ENHANCE initiative activities. Register now for the virtual Jan. 29 Happy Hostas Ag & Stewardship Workshop, and visit us online to explore the Arts Council’s Cloudscapes Art Show, which continues through Feb. 28. In addition, we invite you to join us in sharing our appreciation for our nation’s veterans, whose selfless service and sacrifice have allowed us to enjoy the freedoms we love and experiences like this week’s Inauguration. Drop off Valentine’s cards with a kind note for our local veterans at Town Hall and Founders Station beginning Monday, Jan. 25!

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, Town facilities will remain closed to public visitors.

These opportunities include the virtual Jan. 29 Happy Hostas Ag & Stewardship Workshop and the Arts Council’s Cloudscapes Art Show, which begins this weekend. However, in order to enjoy all the activities this year will offer, we must continue to make smart, intentional decisions that protect the health of our community. COVID-19 continues to challenge our state and our community, and it is up to each of us to combat the spread of this virus and care for one another.

 

It is vital that we focus on the simple health precautions we know can make a difference. Please pay attention to social distancing, and maintain a 6-foot distance from those outside of your household. Practicing frequent and thorough handwashing and sanitation of high-traffic surfaces helps keep everyone healthy. Crowds and large gatherings pose a particular risk of the spread of COVID-19. Please avoid these situations whenever possible. In addition, it is vital to have a face mask available to wear in public and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Jan. 22.  

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, Town facilities will remain closed to public visitors. We want to emphasize that we continue to be ready and available to serve you, and our team is accessible via phone and email.  You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We look forward to serving you!

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Thank you for all you do: Together, we will come through this.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

“The holiday season is upon us, and we hope you enjoyed a safe and happy Thanksgiving this week. We have so many blessings in the Town of Pike Road, and it’s all possible because of you, our engaged and welcoming community. We encourage you to continue to be smart and thoughtful as you celebrate the holiday season. COVID-19 remains a present challenge, and our dedication to making safe decisions will help us progress toward a more normal new year. The current Safer At Home Order and other health guidelines continue through December 11, 2020, and it is so important that we remain committed to the health and safety of our community.

 

Our recommendations for staying healthy and preventing the spread of COVID-19 remain the same. Please maintain a six-foot social distance from others whenever possible. Wash your hands and sanitize your environment thoroughly and frequently. Be aware of the risks of large crowds, and please keep a mask handy to wear in public. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others, and the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Dec. 11.  Thank you for continuing to safely support one another.

Although we are unable to gather together for our annual Town Christmas Tree Lighting this year, we hope you will celebrate with us during our Christmas Spectacular! Begin the week with Mondays with the Mayor on Nov. 30, and stop by Town Hall all week to pick up Hot Cocoa Kits and Postcards for Santa. Then, drop by Town Hall from 5 – 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 4, to deliver your postcards to Santa Claus himself, who will be joining us for the Christmas Spectacular. A special radio broadcast will begin at 6 p.m., and the Virtual Christmas Tree Lighting video presentation will be available online at 7! The Christmas Spectacular will also kick off our annual Season of Giving Holiday Collections Drive, benefiting our neighbors in need through the Central Alabama Veterans Healthcare System and local food pantries. Don’t forget to drop off donations when you deliver your Postcard to Santa on Dec. 4.

 

Based on the current Safer At Home order and guidelines, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through Dec. 11. We are committed to safely serving our community, so please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email. You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We look forward to serving you!

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Thank you for all you do: Together, we will come through this.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

Click here to view this update as a PDF.

“As we wrap up the month of October, there is so much to celebrate in the Town of Pike Road. This fall, we have explored safe, new ways to enjoy traditional events like Hay, Look at Us!, Founders Week, and the Plein Air Paint Out. We have completed the 2019-2020 fiscal year with 20 percent reserves and an AA+ bond rating. With all of this in mind, we want to share our heartfelt appreciation for each of you. Your support and engagement make all these things possible.

Throughout the COVID-19 challenge, we have had to be innovative, reevaluating events and activities and learning together as we find safer ways to enjoy the things that mean so much to us. Thank you for your dedication to being safe, making smart choices, and building confidence as we move forward. As a reminder, there are four principles that we must continue to practice this season. Please maintain a six-foot distance from others whenever possible. Wash your hands and sanitize your environment frequently. Be aware of the risks of large crowds, and keep a mask handy to wear in public. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. Thank you for continuing to safely support one another.

 

Speaking of masks, tomorrow, Oct. 31, is Halloween. For those who choose to celebrate this holiday, it often means dressing up in costumes and trick-or-treating from door to door. This year, with the ongoing COVID-19 challenge in mind, the CDC and ADPH have recommended that families find safer alternatives to traditional trick-or-treating. Click here to access the ADPH guidance, and please be smart and stay safe this weekend!

 

We are thankful for the opportunity to provide many of our traditional fall activities through innovative methods, and we appreciate your energy and engagement. Many of our ENHANCE initiative activities are ongoing, including the Hay, Look at Us! hay bale decorating contest, and Plein Air Paint Out. Visit us on Facebook to view all 46 hay bales and access a driving map to take a tour of the 2020 Hay, Look at Us! creations through Nov. 8. You can also view the incredible works of the Plein Air Painters throughout the month of November, vote for your favorite pieces, and learn how you can bring one into your home.

 

In addition, we want to remind you that this year’s Veterans Appreciation Ceremony will be held virtually at 2 p.m. on November 8. As we prepare to honor our nation’s veterans, we invite and encourage you to visit www.pikeroad.us to share photos and stories of the veterans you know and love. This will be a special part of our Veterans Appreciation efforts, to be included in our virtual program and in our digital library, created to recognize, honor and remember the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. The virtual Veterans Appreciation Ceremony will be accessible through our Facebook page and website on Nov. 8.

 

The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, so the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through Nov. 8. We are committed to safely serving our community, so please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email. You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We look forward to serving you!

“Tomorrow, Oct. 24, the Town of Pike Road will officially turn 23! As one of the youngest towns in Alabama, we are uniquely positioned to remember the history that helped us get here while celebrating the exceptional progress we have made in just over two decades of incorporation! Thank you, Pike Road, for your engagement and enthusiasm, which have helped us maintain the character of our community and continue to contribute to the Welcome Home spirit that has always made the Pike Road area such a special place to call home. Earlier this week, we kicked off our 2020 Founders Week celebrations with the Community Connection Challenge, which is all about safely connecting with one another and the history of our hometown. If you have not already, we encourage you to visit us online and get involved: You can participate in everything from supporting local businesses and the Pike Road Patriots to contributing to our Veterans Appreciation initiatives through Oct. 28. Your participation is your key to safe, family-friendly fun, and prizes like gift cards from our Pike Road businesses.

As we enjoy all that Founders Week and the fall season have to offer in the Town of Pike Road and beyond, we encourage you to remain cognizant of the health and safety guidelines.  The COVID-19 challenge continues, and it is important that we remain dedicated to the four simple things we can do help keep ourselves and our community safe and healthy. Please maintain a six-foot distance from others whenever possible. Wash your hands and sanitize your environment frequently. Be aware of the risks of large crowds, and keep a mask handy to wear in public. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. Thank you for continuing to safely support one another. Your actions help build confidence as we move forward.

 

We are thankful for the opportunity to provide many of our traditional fall activities through innovative methods, and we appreciate your energy and engagement. This fall, we have had a record number of participants in many of our ENHANCE initiative activities, like the Hay, Look at Us! hay bale decorating contest, Plein Air Paint Out, and virtual Ag & Stewardship workshops. This weekend, take advantage of these ongoing activities by taking a driving tour of the 46 Hay, Look at Us! creations, voting for your favorite to win the People’s Choice Award on our Facebook page, and checking out the 2020 Plein Air Paint Out’s original works through a virtual art show beginning tomorrow, Oct. 24. Through the virtual art show, you can vote for your three favorite paintings to win the Plein Air People’s Choice Award.

 

We also want to share our gratitude for the many citizens who took the time to donate blood yesterday, Oct. 22, during our Community Blood Drive in partnership with LifeSouth. Your donations stay local and save lives! These activities are all part of the Founders Week Community Challenge, so don’t forget to download a Challenge Card and earn points while you’re at it. Visit www.pikeroad.us to learn how you can safely participate in all of these activities!  

 

In addition, we want to remind you that this year’s Veterans Appreciation Ceremony will be held virtually on November 8. As we prepare to honor our nation’s veterans, we invite and encourage you to visit www.pikeroad.us to share photos and stories of the veterans you know and love.

“It is an exciting time in the Town of Pike Road, and we appreciate your efforts to be safe and smart as we enjoy all this season has to offer. This week, the Town of Pike Road will celebrate 23 years since incorporation. As we look around Town, we are reminded of our many blessings and all that has happened in the past two decades. From the record number of Hay, Look at Us! hay bales to the incredible group of plein air artists here to paint the scenery of our beautiful hometown, and to the opportunities abounding at Pike Road Schools, we have so much to be thankful for. We appreciate all the folks who help make this possible.  Thank you, Pike Road, for all you do to embody the spirit of Welcome Home, even during this uniquely challenging time.

We encourage you to remain cognizant of the health and safety guidelines.  Please remain dedicated to the four simple things we can do to be safe and still enjoy this incredible season in our special hometown. These important principles remain the same. Please maintain a six-foot distance from others whenever possible. Wash your hands and sanitize your environment frequently. Be aware of the risks of large crowds, and keep a mask handy to wear in public. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. Thank you for continuing to safely support one another. Your actions help build confidence as we move forward.

 

We are thankful for the opportunity to provide many of our traditional fall activities through innovative methods, and we appreciate your energy and engagement. The Plein Air Paint Out will not include the usual art sale and reception. However, we are excited to share this weekend’s works through a virtual show beginning on Founders Day, Oct. 24. Between now and then, join us as we celebrate Founders Week with an array of activities! Our Connection Challenge is available now at www.pikeroad.us, and it’s all about engaging with the history of Pike Road, as well as the great things happening now. Don’t miss our Mondays with the Mayor radio show. It will be on Monday, Oct. 19. Then, give back on Oct. 22 through the Community Blood Drive, hosted at Town Hall in partnership with LifeSouth. On Friday, learn how to raise, store, and utilize herbs at home with the Ag & Stewardship Club’s virtual workshop. Also during Founders Week, Hay Look at Us! entries will be judged, and we’ll share a driving map so that you can enjoy all 46 hay bales. Visit www.pikeroad.us to learn how you can safely participate in all of these events!  

We want to provide a special reminder of our annual Veterans Appreciation Ceremony and Community Cookbook program. This year, the Veterans Appreciation Ceremony will be held virtually on November 8. We invite and encourage you to visit www.pikeroad.us to share photos and stories of the veterans you know and love. This will be a special part of our Veterans Appreciation efforts. These will be included in our virtual library, created to recognize, honor and remember the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. In addition, we invite you to share your family’s favorite fall memories, recipes, and traditions as part of our Fall 2020 Memories & Meals Community Cookbook.

Because the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through Nov. 8.

“As we continue into the fall, weather from the tropics will continue to occasionally impact our area. Please keep this in mind, and stay in-the-know about current and predicted conditions as you plan your weekend activities. In addition, the Safer at Home Order and statewide mask requirement continue through November 8. We appreciate all you have done to be safe, make smart choices, and build confidence throughout this challenging time. We encourage you to remain cognizant of the health and safety climate, as well as to remain dedicated to the four simple things we can do to build on the progress we have made so far.

As a reminder, please maintain a six-foot distance from others as you enjoy the activities this season has to offer. Wash your hands and sanitize your environment frequently and be aware of the risks of large crowds. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, and wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. Thank you for continuing to safely support one another. We also appreciate your effort in supporting our local businesses. Your actions help build confidence as we move forward.

 

This is a special season in the Town of Pike Road, and we are thankful for the opportunity to provide many of our traditional fall activities through innovative and virtual methods. One very important annual event is our Veterans Appreciation Ceremony, to be held virtually on November 8. As we prepare to honor our nation’s veterans, we invite and encourage you to visit www.pikeroad.us to share photos and stories of the veterans you know and love. These will be included in our virtual library, created to recognize, honor and remember the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. In addition, we invite you to share your family’s favorite fall memories, recipes, and traditions as part of our Fall 2020 Memories & Meals Community Cookbook.

 

The next few weeks are busy ones, and we don’t want you to miss a thing. The 9th Annual Plein Air Paint Out will bring artists from across the country to Pike Road on Oct. 16 – 17. Much of this weekend will be presented virtually, but the community is still welcome to visit with artists that are painting around town – just remember to keep a 6-foot distance and wear your mask! Then, we will celebrate Founders Week and the Town’s 23rd birthday with a week of activities. Join the conversation during the Oct. 19 Mondays with the Mayor Radio Show, give back by giving blood on Oct. 22, and learn how to raise and utilize various herbs through the Oct. 23 Ag & Stewardship workshop. Also during Founders Week, Hay Look at Us! entries will be judged, and we’ll share a driving map so that you can enjoy all 46 hay bales.

 

One last reminder: The deadline to participate in the 2020 Census has been extended through Oct. 31. If you have not already filled out your census, please visit my2020census.gov to do so today! Pike Road has done a great job so far, but it is so important that every household be counted. The 2020 Census has 10 questions, it takes about 6 minutes to complete, and it can affect billions in funding for Alabama.

 

Since the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through Nov. 8.

“Fall fun is in full swing in the Town of Pike Road, and we’re excited to celebrate the season with you. Please remember that, this week, Governor Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health announced the extension of the Safer at Home order through November 8, 2020. We hope this will remind you that, while we enjoy all the fall has to offer, COVID-19 continues to challenge our community and our state. It is so important that we continue making smart decisions, which will help keep our community safe and help us move forward together.

Please continue to utilize trusted resources like the CDC and Alabama Public Health for safety recommendations and guidelines. Maintain a six-foot distance from others, wash your hands and sanitize your environment frequently, and be aware of the risks of large crowds. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, and wearing a face covering or mask is a simple way to help protect both yourself and others. Thank you for continuing to safely support one another. We also appreciate your effort in supporting our local businesses. Your actions help build confidence as we move forward.

 

Today, Pike Road Schools celebrates Homecoming, and we are reminded to be thankful for all we have. To the people who dedicated their time and energy to making Pike Road Schools a reality, and to the teachers, administrators, and community supporters, we say thank you to you all. We especially appreciate that you continue to make educational opportunities available to our community’s youth. Go Patriots!

 

Last week’s Lunch & Learn and Ag & Stewardship workshop are just a couple of this fall’s wonderful activities. As we prepare to honor our nation’s veterans in November, we encourage you to visit www.pikeroad.us to learn how you can recognize a veteran you know and love by sharing photos and stories. These will be included in our virtual library, created to honor and remember the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. In addition, we invite you to share your family’s favorite fall memories, recipes, and traditions as part of our Fall 2020 Memories & Meals Community Cookbook. Don’t forget to take a look at the Pike Road Quilters’ Virtual Quilt Show, either – it continues through this weekend, Oct. 4. To learn how you can safely participate in these community-building activities, visit us online at www.pikeroad.us!

 

The deadline to participate in the 2020 Census has been extended through Oct. 5. If you have not already filled out your census, please visit my2020census.gov to do so today! Pike Road has done a great job so far, but it is so important that every household be counted. Every ten years, the census is used to determine Congressional representation and set standards of federal funding for schools. The Census assists with healthcare, access to grants for community programming, and infrastructure projects across the nation. The 2020 Census has 10 questions, and it takes about 6 minutes to complete. Remember, it can affect billions in funding for Alabama.

 

Since the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through Nov. 8, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through Nov. 8.

On this meaningful day in the history of our nation, we encourage you to pause and remember the tragedy that struck our nation nineteen years ago. We remember those who simply went to work on the morning of September 11, and we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice that they may help their neighbors. We remember, and we renew our commitment to serving, caring for, and seeking to understand our neighbors, near and far. Thank you, Pike Road, for the care you show one another every day.

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Together, we will come through this.

“Although we may still be waiting for fall weather, the school season and autumn events are here! We thank you, Pike Road, for your continued engagement in all the opportunities our hometown has to offer, and we appreciate your continued commitment to being safe and making smart decisions. Your actions help build confidence and move our community forward, and your engagement makes the Town of Pike Road a special place to call home.

Please continue to be smart by following the safety recommendations from the CDC and Alabama Public Health. Simple actions like keeping a six-foot social distance, washing your hands frequently and thoroughly, and avoiding the risks of large crowds help reduce the risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus. Please continue to wear face coverings or masks that cover your mouth and nose in public spaces to help protect both yourself and others. As a reminder, the current Safer at Home Order and statewide mask mandate continue through Oct. 2.

 

Fall is a special season in the Town of Pike Road, and school-related activities and athletic events, holidays and local traditions are already getting started. There are so many opportunities to participate and engage, and we encourage you to recognize that participation in these programs requires that we follow health and safety guidelines as provided by event organizers and public health providers. Please be mindful of these guidelines, which help us continue to safely enjoy all this season has to offer.

In light of the current safety recommendations, the Town of Pike Road will offer a variety of virtual ENHANCE initiative activities this fall. On Sept. 24, the Pike Road Business Association will tackle generational differences in the workplace with humor and helpful tips during a virtual Lunch & Learn. On Sept. 25, the Ag & Stewardship Club will present a virtual Home Fermentation Workshop! Participants will have the opportunity to pick up the necessary materials from our Community Development team to follow along and can vegetables from home. The Pike Road Arts Council will present a virtual quilt show featuring the handmade works of the Pike Road Quilters, and the annual Hay, Look at Us! Hay Bale Decorating Competition will be here before we know it.

 

We are pleased to invite you to join us as we honor our nation’s veterans. Through September 25, you can honor a veteran you know and love by ordering a commemorative brick paver to be dedicated and installed in the Pike Road Veterans Memorial Walk of Honor. We also invite veterans, friends and families to share photos, videos, stories and related memories with us through Oct. 30 as part of a new virtual library that will be shared with the community in honor and remembrance. Visit www.pikeroad.us to learn how you can participate in all of these opportunities and more.

 

Based on the Governor’s updated Safer At Home order, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through October 2. We are committed to continue safely serving our community, so please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email, and you can find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the Alabama Department of Public Health and Governor Ivey as it relates to COVID-19. We will share any updates on our website.

August 28, 2020: Updates & Reminders from Mayor Stone

Please continue to be safe, smart and thoughtful as we enter the active fall season. Please see a few resources below from Governor Kay Ivey & the Alabama Department of Public Health. 

August 28: A Note from Mayor Gordon Stone
Click here to view this update as a PDF.

“As we look toward the active fall season, please remember that, while we have made so much progress, there is still progress to be made. As you may know, earlier this week, Governor Ivey extended the Safer At Home order and mask requirement through October 2. Please continue to be intentional and make smart, safe decisions as we move forward through this challenge together.

 

We encourage you to remain committed to the same simple, safety ideas recommended by the CDC and ADPH. Continue to actively keep a six-foot social distance in public spaces, wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds, and understand the risks of large crowds. Sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, counter tops, and phones also help reduce the risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus. Please continue to wear face coverings or masks that cover your mouth and nose in public spaces to help protect both yourself and others with whom you come in contact. Fall has so much to offer, from athletic events to holidays and other activities, and each of our actions affects the way we are able to enjoy this special season.

 

Based on the Governor’s updated Safer At Home order, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through October 2. We are committed to continue safely serving our community, so please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email, and you can find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the Alabama Department of Public Health and Governor Ivey as it relates to COVID-19. We will share any updates on our website.

 

This fall, we are excited to present several traditional events and activities for our community as part of our ENHANCE initiative. Today, we had nearly 50 people participate in our virtual Fall Gardening Ag & Stewardship seminar, and there are many more great opportunities for you to get involved! Right now, we invite you to join us as we honor our nation’s veterans. Through September 25, you can honor a veteran you know and love by ordering a commemorative brick paver to be dedicated and installed in the Pike Road Veterans Memorial Walk of Honor. We also invite veterans, friends and families to share photos, videos, stories and related memories with us through Oct. 30 as part of a new virtual library that will be shared with the community in honor and remembrance.

 

On Sept. 24, the Pike Road Business Association will tackle generational differences in the workplace with humor and helpful tips during a virtual Lunch & Learn. Later this month, the Pike Road Arts Council will present a virtual quilt show featuring the handmade works of the Pike Road Quilters, and the annual Hay, Look at Us! Hay Bale Decorating Competition is just around the corner. So, be sure to remind your neighbors and coworkers about this fall-favorite opportunity to get creative and showcase the spirit of Pike Road.

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Together, we will come through this.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

Sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, counter tops, and phones also help reduce the risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus. In addition, the current Safer At Home order requires Alabamians to wear face coverings or masks in public places through August 31. Face masks and cloth face coverings, which should cover your mouth and nose, protect both you and others with whom you come in contact. It is important to remember that our actions can affect everyone we meet, either building confidence or increasing risks. Please continue to be thoughtful, cautious, and compassionate in your actions.

 

Our team remains committed to safely serving and connecting our community, and this includes both municipal services and Quality of Life programming.

However, please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email, and you can find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us. These resources include voter information for the upcoming municipal election, which will be held at Town Hall on August 25. We appreciate your understanding and utilization of digital methods as we continue to prioritize safety and access to municipal services.

 

This fall, we are excited to present several traditional events and activities for our community. Next week, on August 28, our Ag & Stewardship Club will present a virtual Fall Gardening Workshop in partnership with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. Don’t miss this free event, which will help you transition from summer fruits and veggies to a full fall harvest! Then, stay tuned to learn how you can participate in the Pike Road Business Association’s next Lunch & Learn event on Sept. 24. Our Hay, Look at Us! Hay Bale Decorating Competition is just around the corner, too.

“COVID-19 continues to challenge our community and our state, and we appreciate all you have done and are doing to help us make progress throughout this situation. Traditional fall activities and the start of school are quickly approaching, and it is important for us to remain dedicated to making smart choices and keeping our community safe as we move into this season. Following safety guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and ADPH help protect both our families and our neighbors, as well as the front-line workers. Thank you for continuing to serve our community. We appreciate your efforts.

 

These health and safety recommendations consistently include keeping a 6-foot social distance from others, avoiding group gatherings, washing your hands thoroughly and often, and sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, counter tops, and phones. The current Safer At Home order requires Alabamians to wear face coverings or masks in public places through August 31. Face masks and cloth face coverings, which should cover your mouth and nose, protect both you and others with whom you come in contact. It is important to remember that our actions can affect everyone we meet. Please continue to be thoughtful, cautious, and compassionate in your actions.

We appreciate your understanding and utilization of digital methods as we continue to prioritize safety and access to municipal services. 

 

As summer comes to a close, so does the 2020 Census. The deadline to participate in the Census is quickly approaching, so if you have not already filled out your census, please visit my2020census.gov and do so today! Pike Road has done a great job so far, but it is so important that every household be counted. Every ten years, the census is used to determine congressional representation and set standards of federal funding for schools. The Census assists with healthcare, access to grants for community programming, and infrastructure projects across the nation. The 2020 Census has 10 questions, and it takes about 6 minutes to complete. Remember, it can affect $13 billion in funding for Alabama. 

 

We remain involved in all EMA, state and federal discussions to stay aware of recommendations, needs and opportunities as this situation continues. Further, we are engaged with community leaders, schools, churches, and service organizations to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our Town. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the Alabama Department of Public Health and Governor Ivey as it relates to COVID-19. We will share any updates on www.pikeroad.us.

July 31, 2020: Updates & Reminders from Mayor Stone

Please continue to be safe, smart and thoughtful as you enjoy the summer season. Please see a few resources below from Governor Kay Ivey & the Alabama Department of Public Health. 

July 31, 2020: A Note from Mayor Gordon Stone

“This week, Governor Ivey extended the Safer At Home order and mask requirement through August 31. We hope this will serve both as a reminder that COVID-19 continues to challenge our community and our state and encouragement to continue to be safe and make smart choices. Throughout this ongoing situation, our community has embodied the neighborly “Welcome Home” spirit that makes the Town of Pike Road such a special place to call home, and we are so appreciative of how you continue to support each other.  We ask and encourage you to fight the fatigue of social distancing, avoiding group gatherings, and staying home, and continue making intentional, thoughtful decisions that help keep our community safe while remaining connected. Following safety guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and ADPH help protect both our families and our neighbors, as well as the front-line workers who continue to serve our community, and we appreciate your efforts.

Health and safety recommendations continue to include social distancing, avoiding group gatherings, washing your hands thoroughly and often, and sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, counter tops, and phones. The current Safer At Home order requires Alabamians to wear face coverings or masks in public places. Face masks and cloth face coverings, which should cover your mouth and nose, protect both you and those you come in contact with, and it is important to remember that our actions affect the essential workers and healthcare professionals who continue to serve in our community. Please continue to be thoughtful, cautious, and compassionate in your actions.

 

Based on the updated Safer At Home order, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through August 31. Please know that our team is always available to help you via phone and email, and you can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, pikeroad.us. If you have pressing business that requires an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact our team. We appreciate your understanding and utilization of digital methods as we continue to prioritize safety and access to municipal services.

 

As we move forward, we want to say thank you to the front-line workers who continue to ensure we have safe access to services and necessities throughout this process. Thank you to our local businesses, who continue to adapt to the coronavirus challenge, and thank you, Pike Road, for supporting them. Thank you to our churches and P.R.A.Y.E.R. Team for working to provide safe fellowship and worship opportunities, as well as providing resources for our neighbors in need. We also want to extend a special thank you to the leaders, administrators, teachers and staff of Pike Road Schools, who have been working all summer to prepare for a responsible start to the 2020-2021 school year. To learn about the upcoming school year, please visit www.pikeroadschools.org.

 

We remain involved in all EMA, state and federal discussions to stay aware of recommendations, needs and opportunities as this situation continues. Further, we are engaged with community leaders, schools, churches, and service organizations to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our Town. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the Alabama Department of Public Health and Governor Ivey as it relates to COVID-19. We will share any updates on pikeroad.us.

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Together, we will come through this.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

“From the very beginning of the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, we have been amazed by our community’s response. You have gone above and beyond to be smart, stay safe, and care for neighbors in need. We are so appreciative of all you do, and we strongly encourage you to continue to be thoughtful and intentional, following the guidance of the Alabama Department of Public Health as we move forward. This week, Governor Ivey announced a statewide mask ordinance that asks every Alabamian to wear a mask or cloth face covering in public spaces. This is one more step that we can all take to support each other and help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  Making smart, safe choices is the best way to move forward through this situation.

 

Please stay aware of CDC and ADPH recommendations and incorporate them into in your daily routine if you have not already. As a reminder, these continue to include actively social distancing, avoiding group gatherings, washing your hands thoroughly and often, and sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, counter tops, and phones. Face masks and cloth face coverings, which should cover your mouth and nose, protect both you and those you come in contact with, and it is important to remember that our actions affect the essential workers and healthcare professionals who continue to serve in our community. Please continue to be thoughtful, cautious, and compassionate in your actions.

 

We also want to take this opportunity to remind you that the 2020 Census is here! Every ten years, the census is used to distribute everything from congressional representation to federal funding for schools and healthcare, access to grants for community programming, and infrastructure projects across the nation. The 2020 Census has 10 questions, and it takes about 6 minutes to complete, but it can affect $13 billion in funding for Alabama. If you have not already filled out your census, please visit my2020census.gov and do so today.

 

As a reminder, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through July 31.

Click here to view this update as a PDF.

“It is with excitement and gratitude that we express our heartfelt thanks to you following a very special Pike Road Fourth of July. Thank you, Pike Road, for sharing your spirit, joy and gratitude throughout our Week of Patriotism celebrations. It was a gift to see your Scavenger Hunt photos, and we hope you enjoyed the art activities and the songs of celebration in our virtual concert. These, along with the Community Cookbook, can be accessed by visiting www.pikeroad.us. Although these were not our traditional activities, you continue to amaze us and embody the spirit that makes the Town of Pike Road such a special place to call home. We have so much to be thankful for in this great country, and our community is one of those many blessings.

Thank you for continuing to be smart and safe as the summer continues. The COVID-19 challenge is present in Montgomery County and across Alabama, and each of us has a responsibility to help stop the spread. It continues to be vital to make thoughtful choices, recognize the risks of large gatherings, and practice social distancing. CDC and ADPH guidance also includes washing your hands frequently and sanitizing high-traffic surfaces like doorknobs, steering wheels, and countertops both at home and at your place of work. We also encourage you to recognize the importance of wearing masks and face coverings in public spaces or when around those who are not part of your household. Making smart, safe choices helps us progress through the ongoing COVID-19 challenge and builds confidence in our community, and we appreciate your efforts to do so.

 

The Town of Pike Road is not requiring face masks at this time, but we do strongly recommend that everyone wear a face mask in public places, such as grocery stores or businesses, and when interacting with those outside of their household.

“This week, we are excited to wish you all a safe and happy Fourth of July! We also want to say thank you, Pike Road, for all you do. Thank you for safely staying engaged in our community, caring for your neighbors, and showing us why the Town of Pike Road is such a special place to call home. This week, we continue to celebrate a very special Fourth of July with the Week of Patriotism, and the energy these activities have received is incredible. We have so much to be thankful for in this great country, and our community is one of those many blessings.

Traditionally, the Fourth of July holiday and summer season bring lots of opportunities for events and social gatherings. As many of us continue our celebrations and begin our weekend, we encourage you to please be smart and safe. In the midst of this season of activity, the COVID-19 challenge continues in Montgomery County and across Alabama. It is more important than ever to make thoughtful choices, including recognizing the risks of large gatherings and continuing to practice social distancing. We also encourage you to recognize the importance of wearing masks and face coverings in public spaces or when around those who are not part of your household. As we celebrate our country and give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy each day, it is so important to recognize the opportunities we have to care for our neighbors and greater community with thoughtful and intentional actions. Making smart, safe choices helps us progress through the ongoing COVID-19 challenge and builds confidence in our community, and we appreciate your efforts to do so.

 

Despite the challenges of this unique time, our citizens continue to show neighborly love for each other and our hometown. The Fourth of July is such a special time in the Town of Pike Road, and, although this year’s celebrations may be different, the patriotic and community-centric spirit of Pike Road has not changed. Thank you for your efforts to safely connect and celebrate through this week’s activities. The Community Cookbook is available now at pikeroad.us, and it’s full of memories and meals from our citizens. We had a great response to the June 30 Community Blood Drive, and we appreciate your efforts to help meet the ongoing need for blood donations. Following our Flag Exchange, we look forward to seeing the Stars & Stripes flying high across Town.

 

Today, we are excited to share patriotic art activities from the Pike Road Arts Council, and tomorrow, the Fourth of July, enjoy a virtual concert featuring the people of Pike Road. Patriotic music will be shared throughout the day on our social media and website, pikeroad.us. We will also share photos collected throughout the week, so don’t forget to share your photos with #PikeRoad4thofJuly. We encourage you to explore and enjoy these celebrations with your family: Visit pikeroad.us to learn more.

 

As a reminder, the Town of Pike Road is not requiring face masks at this time, but we do recommend that everyone wear a face mask in public places, such as grocery stores or business, and when interacting with those outside of their household. Face masks and cloth face coverings protect both you and those you come in contact with, and it is important to remember that our actions affect the essential workers and healthcare professionals who continue to serve in our community.

 

Following Governor Kay Ivey’s updated Safer at Home Order, released on June 30, the Town of Pike Road will continue to operate with limited access to our municipal facilities through July 31. As always, our team is available to help you via phone and email, and you can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, pikeroad.us. If you have pressing business that requires an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact our team. We appreciate your understanding and utilization of digital methods as we continue to prioritize safety and access to municipal services.

 

We remain involved in all EMA, state and federal discussions to stay aware of recommendations, needs and opportunities as this situation continues. Further, we are engaged with community leaders, schools, churches, and service organizations to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our Town. We will continue to monitor recommendations from the Alabama Department of Public Health and Governor Ivey as it relates to COVID-19. We will share any updates on pikeroad.us.

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other. Together, we will come through this.
