News & Highlights
Jazz and Juleps Event Postponed til 27th
Based on discussions with meteorologists Margaret Orr and Bob Breck, the weather forecast for Sunday does not look good on top of heavy rains on Friday and Saturday. Seeing as it is an outdoor event, we have decided to postpone the Jazz and Juleps Summer Supper until Sunday April 27, 5:30 til 7:30 at the Redd’s on Fourth.
If you have already purchased tickets for the event, we will hold your reservation at the door for you. If you would like to purchase tickets for the event, please click here for more information.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause.

Buckmoth Caterpillar Treatment
It’s that time again to treat your trees to prevent a Buck Moth Caterpillar infestation. The Buck Moth primarily lays its eggs in oak trees, which stay in the tree through winter then begin to hatch in March. Trees cannot be sprayed until the caterpillars have hatched. We encourage you to engage a specialist to spray the trees on your property soon. You might want to coordinate with your neighbor if you share the canopy of the trees most likely to house these pests.
Two reliable sources for this treatment are Parkway Partners and Bayou Tree Service. Please click on their websites below to get further information.
