Save the date, then join us: Annual Brew Fest on January 26 at the Clubhouse

Tired of the dreary days of January? Sip on this: The 6th Annual Eagle Nest Brew Fest is 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Clubhouse.
 
Here's the drill: Bring your own growler (or two) filled with your favorite brew (OK, wine is allowed), share and sample with others, and enjoy all the goodness of living in Eagle Nest. Complimentary red Solo cups will be provided : )
 
Come early, stay late for this free event (adults only) -- our Social Committee's most popular event of the year! Hang out with some cool people (your neighbors!); chow down on some free food (St. Elmo's and Bonefish. Wait, kidding on that, but we'll have plenty of munchies); and raise a glass to the best neighborhood on the Northeastside. Best part is, you're close to home!
 
Want to help? Contact Board members Scott Thien at scottthien@comcast.net or Kim Isaak at kimi.isaak@gmail.com, and we'll get you plugged in!

2018 Holiday Lights Contest winners!

Thanks to all our Eagle Nest residents who put up Christmas lights for the holiday season! It certainly helps brighten up our neighborhood during the dark, gray days of December.

The 2018 winner of our annual Holiday Lights Contest is the home of Michael and Elizabeth Jones, 7901 Tanager (right). Their variety of decorations along with much effort really brought the holiday spirit to the street. They won second place in 2017.

Our second place winner is the home of Norma Levering, 8232 Osprey Circle. Norma was our third place winner last year.

Our third place winner was the home of Stuart and Amy Savka, 7832 Mallard Way.  The Savkas are relatively new to the neighborhood and have decorated their home for the seasons.

All three winners will receive a gift card this year. A special shout-out goes to Hummingbird Court who had all 6 houses in the court decorated.

Thanks to all residents who continue to dedicate time and effort to lighting up our neighborhood during the holiday season.

Our annual Cookies with Santa event is Sunday, Dec. 16, from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Clubhouse. Kids of all ages are welcome to attend this popular neighborhood tradition to decorate cookies and color Christmas pictures while awaiting Santa's arrival. This is a great opportunity to capture those last-minute holiday photos. Don't wait in line at the mall for your child to see Santa -- our event at the Clubhouse is free and much less stressful. Santa is looking forward to seeing lots of good little boys and girls (OK, and a few adults, too!) Volunteers are welcome, so if you want to help please contact Board member Alice Miley.

Indianapolis, Lawrence announce same trick-or-treats hours but different days

Eagle Nest residents could see trick-or-treaters two nights in a row, depending on which city announcement they observe.

On Monday, Lawrence Mayor Steve Collier announced the city will shift trick-or-treat hours a day earlier, to 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, to avoid a wet Wednesday forecast.

However, as of late Monday, the City of Indianapolis still planned to observe trick-or-treat hours of 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Eagle Nest residents are advised to leave their  porch lights on if they want visitors, or turn them off if they don't want to be visited.

Click here for the latest trick-or-treat times in Central Indiana.

IMPD will have extra patrols and enforcement in neighborhoods during these times to protect the safety of residents during Halloween festivities.

If you are joining in this year’s trick-or-treating fun, please consider the following safety tips:

• Wear light-colored clothing short enough to prevent tripping and add  reflective tape
• Wear fire-resistant costumes
• Make sure children can see through face masks
• Don’t wear masks or disguises into businesses
• Adults should accompany young children and children with special needs
• Go out in daylight hours if possible or carry a flashlight if you’ll be out after dark
• Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of their surroundings.
• Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats
• Examine all treats before allowing children to eat them. If you find a suspicious item, contact police as soon as possible. If injury is involved, dial 911.
• Avoid props such as toy guns, which can look real
• Consider block parties instead of trick-or-treating
• Don’t fire guns – not only is this illegal, but what goes up, must come down

Please call or go online and report tonight's IPL power outage!

FELLOW RESIDENTS -- PLEASE CALL IPL OR GO ONLINE AND REPORT OUR CURRENT POWER OUTAGE ASAP!

If you're home and checking email or Facebook by cell phone you no doubt are sitting in the dark wondering when the power will come back on after today's wind storms. So is the rest of the neighborhood.

You can help speed up the restoration process by reporting our neighborhood outage to IPL:
As of 10:30 p.m. Oct. 20, only six (6) Eagle Nest properties have reported a power outage, according to IPL's website -- and yet we know our entire neighborhood is dark after nearly five hours.

Please help -- go online or call IPL now. The more homes that report, the larger the number of complaints are registered and the more attention we'll get.

Thank you for your assistance.

Crime Watch meeting 7 p.m. October 2

Fellow residents,

Do you know how to prevent yourself from getting caught in a harmful situation? When it comes to your personal safety, do you have a plan? We can help you find those answers at Eagle Nest’s final Crime Watch meeting of 2018 -- 7 p.m. October 2 at the Clubhouse. The featured speaker of Carolyn Goldenetz, our neighborhood’s Crime Watch coordinator.

The evening will cover situational awareness, risk reduction and self-protection layering. The meeting also will focus on OODA Loop training -- the decision cycle of observe, orient, decide and act, developed by a military strategist.

Empowering our Eagle Nest families with education on equipping and forming a plan of safety is the goal,” Carolyn said. “Come and learn how easy it is to take home a skill that just might save your life or that of someone you love.”

The meeting is free and open to all residents.
