Did you know?
Did You Know…..?
 
Colorado has become one of the top 5 states in the nation for natural gas production and is in the top 10 for oil production.  And….the city of Aurora will be selling our water to Anadarko.  In July with a vote of 8-3, the City Council approved a 5-year lease of water to the drilling company.  Water that is used in the fracking process is non-recoverable and no longer part of the fresh water cycle.
 
National Night Out
Enjoy a Night Out and Help Make Murphy Creek a Safer Place!
 
Join your neighbors at the National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7 at 6:30PM in Homestead Park.  This “night out” will be taking place throughout the nation on Aug. 7 with neighbors getting off their couches, leaving their houses and meeting at neighborhood parks or streets.  This event was created to make it easier to meet new neighbors and to catch up with old neighbors.  It has been proven…the more we know about each other, the less crime we will have in our neighborhoods.  The Aurora Police Department will be hosting, along with our local Fire Department, who will graciously grill hot dogs for all.  See you there!
Community Gardener
Celebration of the Garden
 
The Community Garden Party last week was a great occasion.  Gardeners, their children, neighbors, Board members and the Mayor of Aurora gathered  to celebrate the greening of the garden.  There was sunshine, speeches, good food, neighborly visiting and all kinds of growing vegetables.  Drop by anytime to stroll through the paths, talk with the gardeners, and maybe even sit on the garden bench and watch the sun go down.
Kids at MCGC Neighbors Community Cookout
Community Cookout
 
Here are some of the people who braved the wind last Sunday to enjoy the MCGC Neighbors' community cookout prior to the Social Committee's Big Band concert.  Many thanks to all who attended and to all who contributed a dish to share.  It was fun!
