“It has been a great week in the Town of Pike Road! On Tuesday, we had the opportunity to welcome students from Pike Road Schools for the annual YMCA Youth in Government Day program. Local leaders, including members of our Town Council and Planning Commission, representatives of several service providers, PRS Superintendent Dr. Chuck Ledbetter, and others joined us to share the Pike Road Story, all about local government, and how collaboration and innovation can create opportunities. This is such a special program, and we hope the participating students left with a greater understanding and renewed hometown pride that they will carry with them as they continue their journeys into the future.

We also discussed our ENHANCE initiative, the roadmap for quality of life, that drives community programming in the Town of Pike Road. The volunteer-led committees that fall under ENHANCE are always active, and there are so many ways to get involved. This week, we encourage you to check out the Art All Around Us art show, presented by the Pike Road Arts Council, and participate in the annual Spring Cleanup, presented in connection with statewide Alabama People Against a Littered State Spring Cleanup and our Neighborhood Leaders. Then, our Community Enrichment group is working to host a Community Blood Drive in partnership with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers on April 29.

“Happy New Year, Pike Road! We hope you enjoyed a very meaningful Christmas holiday with family and friends, and we wish you joy and hope as we head into 2022. We are so excited to welcome the opportunities that the new year will bring for the Town of Pike Road, from ENHANCE initiative quality of life programming to our continually growing business community. It’s important for us to say thank you, too, as we prepare for the new year. All that we have accomplished and celebrated in the past year is made possible by each of you! Thank you for all you have done to make 2021 a special year in the Town of Pike Road. The Town is making exciting plans for the future, and we welcome your feedback and input. If you have an idea, please email it to us at info@pikeroad.us.

With the dawn of the New Year, we look forward to the days when COVID-19 is no longer part of our daily lives, However, as we enjoy all the opportunities that the coming year will offer, we encourage you to remember that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge in our community and our state. Please continue to make smart, safe decisions as you celebrate all this time of year has to offer. One of the most effective tools to combat COVID-19 is vaccination. Initial vaccines and additional booster doses are free and readily available at multiple locations within our community, and individuals ages 5+ are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. In addition, the Alabama Department of Public Health recommends that immunocompromised individuals receive a booster vaccine after they are fully vaccinated. Adults 18 and older are eligible to receive a booster dose six months after receiving their first Moderna or Pfizer shot, or two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“The Town of Pike Road is always a special place, but it is particularly welcoming, warm, and energetic during the holiday season. From celebrating together at the Christmas Tree Lighting to enjoying all the lights and creative displays on lawns across town, we appreciate how you engage and show your community spirit.

One of the joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to give gifts and share our love for one another. On Monday, Dec. 20, we hope you will join us in sharing from our abundance with our neighbors in need through both the annual Season of Giving Holiday Collections Drive and a Community Blood Drive, presented in partnership with LifeSouth. Stop by Town Hall from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. to donate blood or drop off Season of Giving donations like hygiene items and non-perishable food items. For over ten years, your generosity has made the Season of Giving a successful collections drive showcasing the spirit of our community, and we are thankful to have the opportunity to continue this tradition in 2021. At this time, there is also an emergency need for blood donations in our area, and with LifeSouth, your donations stay local. Just 20 minutes of your time can help save up to 3 lives, making the holiday season a little brighter for even more of our neighbors. We encourage you to consider giving the gift of life this Monday at Town Hall!

 

With your help, the Town of Pike Road is also pleased to support the Montgomery City/County Emergency Management Agency in their efforts to provide a welcoming warming center for those in need of shelter during winter’s cold weather. Recent contributions to the EMA included kitchen supplies to help provide warm meals and warm-weather clothing items you have donated. Thank you, Pike Road, for all you do.

 

As the holiday season continues, we ask you to remember that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge in our community and our state.

“December has kicked off with a strong start in the Town of Pike Road, and your engagement has made it all possible! We had so much fun celebrating the holiday season with you at the Town Christmas Tree Lighting last Friday. Then, this week, the community had the exciting opportunity to celebrate Pike Road Schools’ first State Champion football team, two State Champion cheerleading teams, and all of the people who made this success possible, from coaches and administrators to fans and the Pike Road Schools Band. Yesterday, we gathered with the Pike Road Business Association to look ahead at 2022 and prepare for new trends and new success, and there is still more happening in the Town of Pike Road. Next week, don’t forget to stop by Town Hall through Wednesday, Dec. 15, to pick up a kit featuring Postcards for Santa and return your notes to our special mailbox to receive a letter back from the Jolly Old Elf himself.

The Season of Giving Holiday Collections Drive is also an important part of the holiday season in the Town of Pike Road. Through Dec. 21, we invite and encourage the community to drop off non-perishable food items, household necessities, personal hygiene items, and cold-weather clothes for both the Food Pantry at Woodland United Methodist Church and local veterans in need. The Central Alabama Veterans Health Care Systems, which serves veterans across Alabama and into Georgia, and volunteers from our local food pantry will distribute your gifts to our neighbors in need. Click here for a full list of needed items from the Food Pantry and CAVHCS! Another way to give back is by giving blood. To help meet the emergency need for blood donations in our area, the Town of Pike Road has partnered with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers to host a mobile blood drive at Town Hall on Dec. 20. Walk-ins are welcome, and remember: It only takes about 20 minutes to donate blood, and each donation can save up to three lives!

 

With the active holiday season now in full swing, we ask you to remember that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge in our community and our state. One of the most effective tools to combat COVID-19 is vaccination. Initial vaccines and additional booster doses are free and readily available at multiple locations within our community, and individuals ages 5+ are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

“It is an exciting time in the Town of Pike Road! Just last night, the Pike Road Schools Patriots football team made history with their first appearance in the 5A State Championship matchup. The Patriots brought home a convincing win and have the distinction of being Pike Road’s first State Champion football team, after only four years of varsity football. We appreciate the dedication and commitment of so many: players, coaches, fans, and many excited and engaged students! It was great to see the thousands of Pike Road people gathered in Birmingham to collectively support our team and community.

Now, tonight, we will gather in celebration of the holiday season and our many blessings at the Town Christmas Tree Lighting! The annual Christmas Tree Lighting is such a special event, and this year, it will feature holiday performances from the Pike Road Schools Show Choir and Pike Road Dance Academy. I look forward to reading a Christmas story to our youngest Pike Road citizens before we enjoy a magical, snowy treat. Don’t forget to stop by Town Hall through Dec. 15 to pick up a kit featuring Postcards for Santa, and then return your notes to our special mailbox to receive a letter back from the Jolly Old Elf himself.

 

During this time of year, we also want to remind you that the holiday season is a time of need for many of our neighbors. Beginning at tonight’s Christmas Tree Lighting, we invite you to help meet those needs through the Season of Giving holiday collections drive. Through Dec. 21, the community can drop off non-perishable food items, household necessities, personal hygiene items, and cold-weather clothes for both the Food Pantry at Woodland United Methodist Church and local veterans. The Central Alabama Veterans Health Care Systems, which serves veterans across Alabama and into Georgia, and volunteers from our local food pantry will distribute your gifts to our neighbors in need. To learn more about these opportunities, give us a call at 334.272.9883 or visit www.pikeroad.us.   

 

Don’t forget to schedule in the Pike Road Business Association Lunch & Learn coming up on Dec. 9! The holiday season is a busy one, but it’s also a great time to look ahead at the year to come. Whether you’re in business in the Pike Road area or you are interested in entrepreneurship, we encourage you to join us on Dec. 9 for the final Business Association Lunch & Learn of 2021. We’ll network and enjoy lunch from a local restaurant, and Professional Trainer Sharleen Smith of Troy University Continuing Education & Outreach will lead “Leadership During Change” to help us each prepare to lead our way into the New Year.
