PURPOSE OF HUNTER’S PARK

COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

Hunter’s Park Community Association handles the

financial and legal affairs of the subdivision. Each lot

owner is required to pay an annual maintenance fee

which is used to pay street lights; pay taxes on and

maintain the common areas, such as the swimming

pools, tennis courts, etc.; pay for security; and pay legal

expenses incurred to enforce the deed restrictions.

The Board meets the 2nd Thursday of every

month at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the

community building. Residents are welcome to attend.

Anyone wishing to place an item on the agenda

should call the HPCA office in advance.

The Annual Meeting of Members is held on the

4th Thursday of January.

Members hold three year staggered terms and are

elected. The election process is as follows:

1) Mail in ballots will be mailed out with the Annual

Maintenance fee statements.

2) Voting in person will begin on the 1st Monday

after the Annual Meeting ending on the following

Saturday at 7pm.

to report any suspicious person, activity or for vacation

watch. There is a voluntary $2.00 security

enables HPCA to provide more coverage without

raising maintenance fees.

LEASH LAW

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.

While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone

who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of

animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting

hurt trying to avoid the animal. Please remember that cats fall under the

same laws as dogs and must be licensed and kept restrained when not

on the premises of the owner. We’ve been told that spreading moth balls

in flower beds might keep cats away.

BARKING DOGS

If you have a problem with a neighbor’s dog constantly barking, you

should first contact the pet owner and make them aware of the problem.

PET HOTLINE NEWS

A very important thing you can do is have a collar with some form of ID

and your phone number on it. Pet stores have special ID’s for your pets.

Many pet owners are now “chipping” the pets. If found and taken to a vet

they can scan chip and find the owner. If your pet has a rabies tag, the vet

has your name and #. The first thing I ask a caller is “does the pet have ID

on it.” If it does, I will help contact the # on the ID and get the pet to it’s

owner ASAP. Or the owner can pick up their lost pet. Having an ID on a

pet makes life easier for all. Marie Nugent - 281-859-1104

DATES TO REMEMBER

September 24 th : Professional Learning Day - Student Holiday

September 27 th : 2 nd Secondary Grading Cycle Begins

KATY ISD SAVES OVER $4M BY IMPLEMENTING

ENERGY SAVING STRATEGIES

Twenty-four Katy Independent School District campuses have earned the Energy Star

Certification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and have saved the District

over $4 million to date due to their efforts. Since 2019, Katy ISD has partnered with

Cenergistic, a Texas-based company that helps school districts conserve energy through

strategies that include fine-tuning air conditioning (AC) run times, identifying unused

AC/lighting schedules, overnight equipment checks, updating technology and other

protocols. “Through approved bond projects, the Katy ISD Operations Division has

been able to install new equipment that is both energy-efficient and more reliable for

campuses and District facilities,” said Chief Operations Officer Ted Vierling. “Small changes

such as upgrading lighting from old technology to light-emitting diode (LED) to larger

adjustments such as replacing boilers and chillers have improved efficiency for both

energy and water consumption,” added Vierling. Over the past three years, Katy ISD has

committed to making energy conservation a priority due to the rising cost of electricity,

gas and water. Every dollar saved on these utilities amounts to greater funding that can

be redirected to classrooms, teachers and students. Looking to sustain conservation

efforts now and well into the future, all new Katy ISD facilities are built with energyefficient

components such as LED lighting, automatic shut-off switches for classroom

lighting, upgraded control systems and utilization of natural light whenever practical.

The following campuses have been awarded the Energy Star Certification:

Elementary Campuses:, Alexander Elementary, Bear Creek Elementary, Cimarron

Elementary, Creech Elementary, Davidson Elementary, Fielder Elementary, Golbow

Elementary, Griffin Elementary, Hayes Elementary, Jenks Elementary, Leonard Elementary,

McRoberts Elementary, Randolph Elementary, Shafer Elementary, Sundown Elementary,

KATY ISD SMART RESTART AND

SPEAKUP CAMPAIGNS RECOGNIZED

BY STATE AND NATIONAL

ORGANIZATIONS

The National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA)

recently recognized the Katy Independent School District

Communication Department with a Golden Achievement

Award for its exemplary work on the District’s Smart Restart -

Return to School campaign, which was executed during the

COVID-19 pandemic. The campaign focused on educating

and engaging students, parents, staff and community

members on the return to school plan, safety protocols

and evolving initiatives impacted by the pandemic. Also

this year, the Texas School Public Relations Association

(TSPRA) awarded the Communications Department with

a Gold Star Award, the highest school public relations

honor in the state, for the District’s SpeakUp Safe Schools

campaign - a multi-level marketing and communication

initiative designed to build awareness around safety

topics; encourage the use of the SpeakUp anonymous

reporting app; emphasize student ownership of safety

protocols; educate parents; and reinforce drug and alcohol

awareness. Print and promotional materials included

posters, public service announcements (PSA) videos and

website and social media messaging. Additionally, a Best of

Category Award was earned for the Department’s scripting,

editing and filming of the PSA video titled “Vaping, It’s Up

to You,” which was part of the campaign.

“Clear, concise and timely messaging for our school

community has always been a key component to our

District’s outreach efforts,” said Dr. Andrea Grooms, Chief

Communications Officer. “While our Communications

team is small, their responsibilities are immense and their

outcomes, far-reaching. They are an extremely talented

and dedicated group of professionals - always prioritizing

the informational needs of Katy ISD families and staff, no

matter the time or circumstances,” added Grooms. The Katy

ISD Communication Department was recognized during

the annual TSPRA and NSPRA conventions this year.

DONATUTORS

Donatutors is a nonprofit tutoring organization that

donates 100% of our proceeds to charity. All of our

tutors are straight-A students at Seven Lakes High

school and we offer a multitude of courses like creative

writing, computer science, biology, public speaking,

ICTW writing and many different math courses too. We

charge $20 per class, but the first one is free! For more

information, check out donatutors.com or email us at

donatutors@gmail.com. What’s even cooler is that this

summer Donatutors was able to raise $1,283 which

we used 70% to give to a Houston based charity called

NAMI and 30% to buy a bunch of masks and canned

food for donation. Please check us out!

ART FESTIVAL DOWNTOWN

SATURDAY & SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9-10, 2021

The Art Colony Association, Inc. (ACA), the producer of Bayou City Art Festival, will

welcome artists, patrons and supporters back for Houston’s signature art event. The inperson

festival, Bayou City Art Festival Downtown, will be held in Downtown Houston,

along Allen Parkway and Sam Houston Park, on Saturday and Sunday, October 9-10,

2021, 10 AM-6 PM. Bayou City Art Festival will spotlight the festival’s featured artist

McKenzie Fisk, a painter from Los Angeles, as it transforms the streets of Downtown

into artistic avenues bursting with colors and culture. As one of the top art festivals in

the country, the weekend event will provide patrons with the opportunity to personally

meet artists, view original works and purchase artwork from 19 art disciplines including

world-class paintings, prints, jewelry, sculptures and more. The festival will feature

live music, food trucks and beverage stations throughout the festival along with two

entertainment stages and art installations. Guests will enjoy Houston’s skyline views while

enjoying the festival’s wine garden, craft beer garden and Art Bar. In the Active Imagination

Zone, the festival’s nonprofit partners will host hands-on art activities for all ages.

A portion of the proceeds from Bayou City Art Festival Downtown will benefit the

festival’s nonprofit partners including Artists For Artists, Fresh Arts, Houston SPCA,

Warriors In Art, Orange Show For Visionary Art and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Online early bird tickets will soon be available at www.bayoucityartfestival.com for

$15 for adults; $5 for children 6-12; and children five and under are free. Adult tickets

“I’m In PAIN”

Can Chiropractic Help ME ?

We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor

of chiropractic can help my problem?”

We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination,

including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation

and examination, including x-rays, if necessary,

(procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00.

We will make this special program available through September.

The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation

and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

THESE CONDITIONS ARE SOME

OF THE DANGER SIGNALS:

Loss of sleep

Scoliosis (Curvature of the spine)

Leg pain & numbness

Arm pain & numbness

Backache

Fatigue

Tension

Whiplash Injury

Reg. $ 187.00 Program

Must present ad at time of appointment.

Expires 9/30/21

YOUR INITIAL VISIT WILL INCLUDE:

✓ A private consultation with the doctor.

✓ X-rays, if necessary.

✓ A thorough spinal examination including

orthopedic & neurological test.

✓ A confidential report of our findings.

✓ An explanation of our treatment procedure

if we determine chiropractic can help you.

✓ A REFERRAL TO THE PROPER SPECIALIST IF WE

DETERMINE CHIROPRACTIC CAN’T HELP YOU.
