Don’t Get Gobbled Up in Flames this Thanksgiving

fire thanksDuring Thanksgiving, the kitchen becomes one of the busiest places in the home and is the day for most home fires involving cooking equipment. The average number of home fires is tripled during this holiday with 34% of home fires related to cooking equipment, 50% of the associated deaths and 48% of the associated injuries. The Collierville Fire Department reminds residents as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, all should take fire safety precautions to ensure Thanksgiving dinners do not turn into family tragedies.

"Keeping safe while cooking Thanksgiving turkey can be cut down to three essentials," say Fire Chief Jerry Crawford. "Don't leave cooking pans unattended, don't let children into the kitchen while cooking, and make sure the kitchen is clean."

The winner of the Christmas Tree Lighting Poster contest sponsored by the Collierville Arts Council, is Molly O'Connor, a 7th grader at Schilling Farms Middle School.

She is the daughter of Christopher and Kimberly O'Connor. While art is her hobby, Molly also participates in tennis and cross-country running. An excellent student she plays the piano, too.

Molly has attended the tree lighting for the past six years. She added a drawing of Rudolph, red nose shinning, to her drawing because she sees deer near her home during this time of year.

As winner, Molly receives a family pass to the Harrell Theatre and her poster will be featured on the harrelltheatre.org website. The poster is also being used to promote the annual Hot Chocolate provided by Collierville Mayor and Board of Aldermen at the Tree Lighting in the Historic Town Square on December 2.

Homeowner Associations Enhance Desired ‘Community Style’ of Collierville

HOA opt
Association fees are used for many items like landscaping the entrance, common areas or Holiday decorations. Hearthstone Home Owners Association was named Collierville Town Beautiful HOA winner for October, 2014. Shown are: (L to R) Debbie Zinser, President -Hearthstone HOA; Beth Bohon of Collierville Town Beautiful Commission; Elizabeth Triplett, Hearthstone HOA; Ann Turner, Town Beautiful Commission; Maggie Harrington, Hearthstone HOA; Tiffany Mortensen, Hearthstone HOA and second row: Matt Ross, Hearthstone HOA.

Homeowners Associations have been a part of residential neighborhood lifestyles for much longer than most realize. HOA's, as they are now called, actually took roots during the mid-19th century. People began leaving agricultural areas to take jobs in the city, yet chose to live outside of the overcrowded, dusty, noisy growing urban area.

In Collierville, homeowner associations are plentiful and varied and include associations for zero-lot-line owners, condominiums, and homes that are multi-family or single households.

Pat Evans, Secretary of Mansfield HOA at Winchester and Peyton Parkway comments that HOA membership is "a way to take ownership and have input in what goes on in your subdivision. It also gives us a chance to know our neighbors." This HOA includes four neighborhoods, Mansfield, The Village, Downing Place and Whitworth.
