“Following an exciting and successful Plein Air Paint Out, it’s now time to celebrate another fall-favorite activity: Hay, Look at Us! It fills us with gratitude and enthusiasm to see our community come together each year to turn hay bales into magical, seasonal creations, and this year is no different. Over 50 neighborhood, business, and organization teams will wrap up their decorations this weekend, and we encourage you to tune in to the Mondays with the Mayor Radio Show on Oct. 25 to hear us announce the winners! Then, everyone is invited take a tour of the hay bales – just visit us online to access a driving map. Also beginning Oct. 25, you can show your favorite Hay, Look at Us! entry a little love by voting for it to win the People’s Choice Award on our Facebook page. This is such a special time in the Town of Pike Road, and we are so appreciative of all you do to make it possible.

Also on the horizon is the annual Pike Road Veterans Appreciation Ceremony. We hope you and your families will join us at the Pike Road Veterans Memorial on November 7 as we recognize and honor our nation’s military heroes.

“Today and tomorrow, Oct. 15 and 16, we are excited to celebrate a special Pike Road tradition that has grown with our community over the past decade. Nearly 50 artists from the River Region and beyond are here in the Town of Pike Road for the 10th annual Plein Air Paint Out, during which they will paint the beautiful scenes of our hometown. If you see an artist out painting this weekend, we encourage you to say hello and help make them feel welcome, as well as enjoy the opportunity to watch as these artists bring their canvas to life. Tomorrow evening, Oct. 16, join us at the Pike Road Arts Center to browse and shop the original works created this weekend, all of which will feature the local landscapes we love so much.

The fall fun continues following this weekend’s Paint Out. On Monday, Oct. 18, stop by the Pike Road Agriculture, Recreation & Performing Arts Center off Trotman Road for the Montgomery County Farm-City Festival. Then, wrap up your hay bale decorations by Oct. 24. We’ll announce the 2021 winners on the Mondays with the Mayor radio program on Oct. 25, so be sure to tune in as we broadcast live from the Ag Center. As you bring your hay bale creations to life, we encourage you to share photos and stories of your teamwork with us by emailing info@pikeroad.us or by tagging @townofpikeroad and #mypikeroad on social media.

To give quick update from the most recent Town Council meeting, I want to thank the council members for a healthy budget discussion and let the community know how excited we are to be moving forward into 2022 with a commitment to continuing to support our many important programs. We are in a great fiscal position and are excited about what our team will be doing in 2022.  Community and economic development, education, infrastructure, planning, quality of life and other key components will be moving ahead with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

“This week has been a significant one for the Town of Pike Road and Pike Road Schools. On October 5, our community voted to provide additional resources to Pike Road Schools for the construction of a new high school. With these results, PRS will now be able to move forward with its facility plans and meet the capital needs of the growing system. Further, school leaders will be able to utilize the new construction to provide expanded academic programs. Investing in education has always been fundamental for the Town of Pike Road because when we invest in our students, we are investing in the leaders of tomorrow.

We want to say thank you to everyone who came out to cast their vote and make their voice heard. We are always encouraged when we see the love and commitment our people have for their community. While we are pleased to continue to support education, we also remain committed to long-term planning, quality of life programming, and services that meet the needs of our community. The Town will continue to provide opportunities for every citizen, and we will do this with an emphasis on fiscal responsibility and stewardship. As we approach 24 years since the Town of Pike Road was incorporated as a municipality, we look forward to all the future holds for our special hometown.

 

Fall is a great time in the Town of Pike Road, and people enjoy many unique activities like arts and crafts festivals, art shows, athletic events, and the Hay, Look at Us! contest.

Then, it’s time for the Montgomery County Farm-City Festival on Oct. 18, and we are excited to share that it will be held at the Pike Road Agriculture, Recreation & Performing Arts Park off Trotman Road. We can’t wait to see you there!

“Fall is a busy season in the Town of Pike Road, and we have many things to look forward to.

 

First, I would like to remind every citizen that, on Oct. 5, there will be an important vote on a proposal to raise the revenue to build a new high school in the Town of Pike Road. The Pike Road Schools Board of Education has analyzed the needs and projected the costs of construction. As a result, the school board is recommending the proposed property tax referendum. By adopting this proposal, the school will have the resources in place to continue the path forward for public education. The school has engaged professionals and developed this plan focused on meeting student needs. The action used to develop this proposal follows the same strategic thought pattern that has been applied since the initial days of the Town. As mayor, I understand the value of education, and I will be voting for the proposal. Likewise, the Town Council voted unanimously in support of a resolution endorsing the proposal. If you have questions, please contact the Office of the Superintendent of Schools by visiting www.pikeroadschools.org. They will be happy to provide all the details. Education is an important part of Pike Road, and voting for this proposal helps provide critical infrastructure for our schools.

 

In addition, please recognize that as we enjoy everything from football games to the upcoming Plein Air Paint Out, it is important to remember that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge in our community and our state. Together, we have a responsibility to make smart decisions that keep both our families and our community safe and healthy.

“Today, we are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to say thank you: Thank you to all of the men and women who serve and sacrifice on our behalf. This weekend marks the somber milestone of twenty years since the terrible events of September 11, 2011, and we encourage you to take a moment to remember the lives that were lost, the families affected, and all those who responded with courage and selflessness in the wake of these events. We are so fortunate to be able to live our lives knowing there are multitudes of servant-hearted people, from the United States military to our first responders and local law enforcement, who work together to keep our communities and our country safe and to protect our freedoms. While we pray that we never again experience a day like September 11, 2011, we also commit to never forget the lessons learned and the importance of expressing appreciation for our many blessings.

It is an exciting time in the Town of Pike Road, and lots of great things are on the horizon! Next Thursday, we hope you will join us for the Pike Road Business Association’s quarterly Lunch & Learn program, presented in partnership with Troy University Continuing Education & Outreach. With health and safety in mind, virtual and in-person options are available for this event, which will focus on helping you discover your personal strengths and how they can be used to build leadership skills, face challenging situations, and, ultimately, grow your business.

It is up to each of us to make smart, responsible decisions that help us maintain our forward progress in the fight to stop it so that we can continue to enjoy opportunities to gather and safely enjoy the company of family and friends.

 

At this time, in accordance with the latest guidelines and recommendations from local health care leaders and the CDC, the Town of Pike Road is requiring visitors at Town Hall and other municipal facilities to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. If you do not have a mask, we will have one available for you. This policy includes Town Hall, Founders Station, and the Pike Road Arts Center. Further, we continue to encourage our community to take necessary safety precautions that protect themselves and others. This includes wearing a mask around those outside of your household, frequent hand washing, practicing social distancing, and covering coughs and sneezes.  One of the most effective tools to combat COVID-19 continues to be vaccination. Vaccines are free and readily available at multiple locations within our community, and individuals ages 12+ are eligible to receive the vaccine. Click here to learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and where you can receive yours.

 

Our team is excited to continue to provide a variety both in-person and blended fall activities through the ENHANCE initiative. This afternoon, the Ag & Stewardship Club will host a blended Trail Cams & Outdoor Photography workshop with both virtual and in-person attendees. Then, this weekend, explore over 50 handmade masterpieces by the Pike Road Quilters as their Quilt Show continues on through Aug. 29. On Monday, Aug. 23, we hope you will join the conversation and connect with us during the Mondays with the Mayor Radio Show, which will broadcast live from the Pike Road Arts Center on the MAX Round Table (107.5 FM / 1210 AM) from 12 – 1 p.m. Find details on these events and more as they approach: visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to register for our weekly e-newsletter, and find us on social media (just search @townofpikeroad)!

 

As always, we will continue to pray for you, and we encourage you to pray for each other.

 

Thank you and God Bless.”

“There is so much to celebrate in the Town of Pike Road and across our great nation this weekend. Thank you, friends and neighbors, for joining us in celebration yesterday evening for SummerFest. Seeing our community gather together again for this traditional time of food, family-friendly fun, and fireworks is something to celebrate in itself, and we are so appreciative of your engagement and your enthusiasm. We also want to share our gratitude with everyone who helped make SummerFest possible, from our friends at Cottonwood Golf Club and our partners at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and both the Rolling Hills Lakes & Pike Road Volunteer Fire Departments, to our volunteers from the Pike Road Kiwanis Club, Saint James Church, and First Baptist Church, as well as the NYC Gyro, Kona Ice, and Potz & Panz food trucks, The Music Guys, LAF Game Co., Inflatables of Montgomery, and, of course, the Town of Pike Road team and our Town Council for their support.

Now, due to the ongoing commitment our community has shown to making smart, responsible decisions, and the diligent work of our healthcare heroes, we can safely gather together again. However, as you enjoy the opportunities summer has to offer, please recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others, and exercise personal responsibility as it relates to COVID-19.

There are two viewing options, Rolling Hills Park & Cottonwood Golf Club, and parking for each area will begin at 6 p.m. So, pack your lawn chairs and picnic blankets, and join us in celebration of our great nation and our community on July 1! Please note: Lawn chairs and picnics are welcome, but no tents or alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we celebrated traditional holidays and special occasions, including the Fourth of July. Now, due to the ongoing commitment our community has shown to making smart, responsible decisions, and the diligent work of our healthcare heroes, we can safely gather together again. However, as you enjoy the opportunities summer has to offer, please recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others, and exercise personal responsibility as it relates to COVID-19. We encourage you to keep a mask handy and honor the requests of individual businesses and organizations who have health precautions in place. The Town of Pike Road’s municipal facilities are open to the public, but we ask visitors to remain safety conscious. We also want to remind you that the COVID-19 vaccines are an excellent tool to help protect ourselves, our families, and our community, and we encourage you to explore opportunities to receive a vaccine. In Alabama, individuals ages 12+ are now eligible to receive the vaccine. Click here to learn more about COVID-19 vaccine safety, eligibility, and availability from Alabama Public Health.

Tomorrow, June 26, visit the Pike Road Arts Center from 2 – 5 p.m. for the opening reception of the Pike Road Arts Council’s I’ve Been Everywhere, Man! Art Show.
