“We have so much to be thankful for in the Town of Pike Road, from the connected and welcoming spirit of our community to the excellent services and safety we enjoy every day. Next Tuesday, Aug. 3, we hope you will join us to say “thank you” and get to know our safety partners as the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Derrick Cunningham host National Night Out. Stop by Home Depot on Chantilly Parkway from 5 – 8 p.m. for a free evening of family-friendly fun, food, and fellowship with our local law enforcement partners and emergency responders. This is also a great opportunity to learn about the programs offered by the MCSO that can help keep you, your home, your business, and our community safe!

As summer comes to a close, we hope you continue to enjoy all the opportunities we have in our area to get outside, get together, and connect with one another. We also encourage you to do so safely and thoughtfully. COVID-19 and, particularly, the Delta variant, are still active across Alabama, and 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, whether you’re staying home or on a vacation, please be mindful of the risks of COVID-19, recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others, and exercise personal responsibility. There may be times when social distancing is a helpful practice, and we ask you to please keep a mask handy and honor the requests of individual businesses and organizations that have health precautions in place. In addition, healthy habits like frequent handwashing continue to be important!

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. We are pleased to share two vaccination clinics in our area this weekend:

  • Murdock Chapel AME Church, located on Antioch Road, has partnered with Baptist Health to host a free community vaccine clinic. Individuals can receive their first dose from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on July 31, and second doses will be available on August 21. Click here to learn more about this clinic from Baptist Health.  

  • The Montgomery City/County EMA has partnered to provide a free community vaccine clinic at the Alabama National Fair Grounds inside Garrett Coliseum. Individuals can receive their first dose from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. on July 31 and from 1 – 7 p.m. on Aug. 1. Second doses will be available on August 22 – 23, and when you return for your second dose, you will receive free tickets to the fair! Click here to learn more from our local EMA.

 

Also this weekend, the I’ve Been Everywhere, Man! Art show will wrap up on July 31 at the Pike Road Arts Center. Don’t miss this chance to explore the world through the world of art, as well as the opportunity to receive travel-related door prizes! Next up from the Arts Council, on Sunday, Aug. 8, join the Pike Road Arts Council for Art Talk & Tea with local artist Warren Simons. Then, the Ag & Stewardship Club will host a Trail Cameras & Outdoor Photography workshop on Aug. 20! Stay tuned for details as these events approach.

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.

“Thank you, Pike Road, for your ongoing commitment to making smart, responsible decisions. Your diligence has helped keep our community healthy and allowed for more flexibility and fewer restrictions as we progress through the challenges of COVID-19. This week, we had the pleasure of gathering with businessmen and women from across town for our first blended Business Association Lunch & Learn. It was exciting to see the energy of our local business community as they joined us both in-person and virtually to network and learn about leadership together for the first time in over a year. On July 1, we look forward to celebrating the patriotic spirit of our community with you at SummerFest! Join us at Cottonwood Golf Club and Rolling Hills Park for a family-friendly fireworks show. Fireworks will light up the Pike Road sky. We can’t wait to see you!

As you enjoy vacation, recreation, and all 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. Thank you for your diligence and understanding. 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.

“This week, we were reminded of the citizen engagement and community spirit that has always made the Town of Pike Road such a special place to call home when student leaders from Pike Road Intermediate School made a special presentation to the Town Council. Among a variety of efforts to work with teachers, administrators, and their fellow students, the PRIS Student Government Association identified a need in both their school and our community and brought it to the Council. We are so proud to see all of the recent accomplishments of students from across the Town of Pike Road and how well they represent our community. The achievements of our baseball and track athletes are just two more of the many examples – congratulations, students, on your statewide recognition! We are thankful for the opportunities available to our community’s youth through Pike Road Schools, and we can’t wait to congratulate the Class of 2021 as they receive their diplomas in just a few weeks. As summertime quickly approaches, graduation isn’t the only thing to celebrate in the Town of Pike Road. We appreciate each of our citizens’ continued efforts to safely engage and support one another, all while making smart, safe decisions that help us build confidence and experience more flexibility with regards to COVID-19 as we move forward. We look forward to all this season will offer as we continue to make progress in the fight against COVID-19!

As a reminder, the current Safer Apart Order for Alabama means that masks are no longer mandated, but we all have the opportunity and responsibility to help keep our community healthy. Please recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others , and exercise personal responsibility. There may still be times when it is appropriate to practice 6-foot social distancing, avoid the risks of crowds, and wear a face mask, especially in public spaces or around those outside of your household. Washing your hands thoroughly and frequently is always a good idea! The Town no longer requires face masks in municipal buildings, but we ask visitors to remain safety-conscious, and face masks will be available upon request. In addition, we encourage all of our residents to honor the requests of individual businesses and organizations throughout Pike Road as relates to COVID-19 practices and precautions. Thank you for your diligence and understanding.

 

Through the dedicated work of ADPH, the EMA, and all of our healthcare providers, we continue to see expanding opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Based on guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the CDC, Governor Ivey announced yesterday, May 13, that individuals ages 12+ are now eligible to receive the vaccine. Click here to learn more from ADPH and find a vaccine near you.

 

No matter what your interests are, we hope you will find opportunities to explore them through the upcoming variety of ENHANCE initiative activities. Last week, the Pike Road Arts Council hosted a successful 5x7 Art Show & Sale, engaging dozens of artists and numerous community visitors. The P.R.A.Y.E.R. Team collaborated to connect with the community on the National Day of Prayer, visiting all three Pike Road Schools campuses. The Ag & Stewardship Club has two opportunities on the horizon: On May 21, tackle Fire Ant Management with experts from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System in the morning, and in the afternoon, create and take home a masterpiece with the Container Gardening Workshop. To wrap up the month, we invite you to join the conversation as the Mondays with the Mayor monthly radio program broadcasts from Cara’s Trattoria, a new restaurant in Pike Road Station, on May 24.

“Pike Road, we are so appreciative of the way you engage in our community, from ENHANCE initiative activities to supporting local businesses and helping out neighbors in need. The 2021 Spring Cleanup is just one illustration of this: We had 18 groups participate, 14 miles of roadways covered, and 114 bags of litter picked up from our community. Thank you for showing your Pike Road pride and community spirit through this beautification initiative! This week, we were also pleased to join members of the P.R.A.Y.E.R. (Pike Road Area Your Emergency Response) Team in recognition of the National Day of Prayer. Faith leaders representing eight of our local churches visited each Pike Road Schools campus to offer a moment of prayer for our community, our nation, and our schools. What a special way to give thanks for our many blessings! In addition, we want to thank our partners and neighbors for working together and helping one another following this week’s strong storms. This collaborative effort was a true show of community spirit. We appreciate your continued efforts to safely engage and support one another, all while making smart, safe decisions that help us build confidence and experience more flexibility with regards to COVID-19 as we move forward.

 

The current Safer Apart Order for Alabama means that masks are no longer mandated, but we all have the opportunity and responsibility to help keep our community healthy. As you are out and about, please recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others. There may still be times when it is appropriate to practice 6-foot social distancing, avoid the risks of crowds, and wear a face mask, especially in public spaces or around those outside of your household. Washing your hands thoroughly and frequently is always a good idea! Beginning this week, the Town will no longer require face masks in municipal buildings, but we continue to encourage visitors to practice personal responsibility, and face masks will be available upon request. Further, we encourage all of our residents to honor the requests of individual businesses and organizations throughout Pike Road as relates to COVID-19 practices and precautions. Thank you for your diligence and understanding during this challenging time.

Through the dedicated work of ADPH, the EMA, and all of our healthcare providers, we continue to see expanding opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, individuals ages 16+ are eligible to receive the vaccine. Click here to learn more from ADPH and find a vaccine near you.

We are excited to invite you to participate in a variety of ENHANCE initiative activities this month, beginning tonight! This evening, May 7, join the Pike Road Arts Council for their 5x7 Art Show & Sale, an approachable, affordable opportunity to enjoy local art. The show will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the Pike Road Arts Center on Wallahatchie Road. We also look forward to welcoming Roses + Woods Boutique to the Shops at Pike Road! They will open their doors at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 8. Then, the Ag & Stewardship Club will present a double-header! On May 21, tackle Fire Ant Management with experts from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System in the morning, and in the afternoon, create and take home a masterpiece with the Container Gardening Workshop. To wrap up the month, we hope you will join the conversation as we welcome Cara’s Trattoria to Pike Road Station as Mondays with the Mayor broadcasts from this new business on May 24. Visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to learn about these events and more, and don’t forget to register for our weekly e-newsletter!

April is the Month of the Military Child, an annual opportunity for us all to recognize and honor the sacrifices and bravery shown every day by the families of our nation’s military men and women. We appreciate you.

Throughout the pandemic, our local businesses have found innovative ways to safely serve the community, and our community has continued to engage and support these special shops. As we continue to make progress in the fight against COVID-19, we look forward to continued opportunities to enjoy and engage with our local businesses.

We are thankful to continue to see expanding opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. On Monday, Mar. 22, eligibility for the vaccine expanded to include individuals 55+ and other groups. Click here to learn more from ADPH. However, this is an ongoing process, and, to continue moving forward toward the days when the challenges of COVID-19 are over, we must continue to take the simple, healthy precautions 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 vital 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. Although we are making progress, please understand that the risk of COVID-19 is still present, and remain focused on making safe, smart decisions based on recommendations from the CDC and ADPH. The updated Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through April 9.

 

Spring brings great energy to our community, and there are so many ways to get involved in the Town of Pike Road. Thank you for your engagement in our ongoing array of ENHANCE initiative activities! Today, we enjoyed the Turfgrass 101 Ag & Stewardship workshop, and in partnership with the Alabama Extension, this monthly series continues on April 16 with Bee Basics. On weekends, visit the Pike Road Arts Center to enjoy their spring show, It Isn’t Easy Being Green, through April 18. You may find the perfect piece to spruce up your home! It’s also time to register for the Spring Cleanup. Throughout the month of April, we encourage you to join us in the annual Spring Cleanup litter pickup. We’ll provide all the supplies – just add volunteers! Visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to learn about these events, and register for our weekly e-newsletter so you always know what’s coming up.

 

Town of Pike Road facilities have returned to Phase 1 of operations, and we are ready to welcome visitors once again. However, COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge, and health precautions including social distancing and mask-wearing are in place. We continue to be ready and available to serve you, and we encourage you to schedule an appointment via phone or email if you need to meet with one of our team members. 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.”

However, there are a few restrictions that have changed – click here to learn more. As we get outside and enjoy the beauty of our natural surroundings and the excitement of community activities, we encourage you to take time to understand the recommendations from ADPH, the CDC, and the State Health Order in order to make safe decisions that protect you, your family, and all of our neighbors.

We are thankful for the continued expansion of access to the COVID-19 vaccine across our state and county.
