Kathleen and I wish all of you the safest, most blessed and happiest New Year.
I received a note from Mike, the gentleman who collected our donations for the homeless. He thanks all of you, saying that Silver Lake went "above and beyond" what was expected. Again, thanks for caring.

So many great outdoor light displays in Silver Lake, the Village is really lit up. Take on drive through the Village in the evening to see how beautifully so many homes have been decorated. Who needs Oglebay when we have it all here in Silver Lake!

This year's deer cull will be held in the same areas as last year, namely the areas behind the service department, Crystal Lake and the Markowitz properties. It will start on Sunday, November 29 and last until February 7. Signs will be posted reminding people to avoid these areas during that time period.
