Hello, Hello, Hello,

Am I the only one who feels like we fast forwarded through Fall straight to Winter? Brrrr, the late summer weather did not give me enough time to acclimate to this new, chilly norm.

I am writing this on election day. I hope everyone voted and let their voices be heard. Regardless of what side of the aisle you’re on, I’m sure we can all agree that we are quite tired of the political advertisements! How is it possible that there is not more oversight on the content of the political ads?  This drives me nuts!

The Halloween parties were fun and festive! I loved the photo booth at the adult party! What a great idea! The kids’ party was packed with wonderfully creative costumes. Hot dogs and goodies were enjoyed by kids and grown-ups alike. Thank you to all the volunteers that made these two events possible!!

Speaking of volunteers… Holiday decorations are coming to the Clubhouse and the Pavilion and the IBIC is always looking for those willing to help. Contact me soon if you’d like to lend a hand.

There will be a Children’s Holiday Party at the Clubhouse on Sunday, December 18th. Volunteers are needed to help set up and clean up. Reach out to Emily Reckord for details.

Coming in January is the IBIC membership drive. IBIC does so much to support many of the things that are treasured by those that love Indianola. The various beach accesses and Rose Marie’s Park are owned and maintained by IBIC. The Post Office, the community Clubhouse and Pavilion are such an integral part of our lives. Show your support! Join IBIC!

Also in January is the much anticipated Indianola Chili Cook-Off!  January 7th at 6:00 PM.  Dust off those recipes! There is a coveted prize for the winner…

There is no December Breeze so bundle up and enjoy those beautiful Fall colors! Gobble, Gobble, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!!
