Mayor’s Message 10-19-2018
Another year and another balloon fiesta has come to pass. We can all take a deep breath now. The change of seasons has never been more dramatic than the cold week we just had. We even had snow this past week! Very unusual for October.
As the weather gets colder you might be firing up your heaters. If you are using a wood burning stove to keep warm, then you might want to take advantage of the firewood tags the fire department are selling. All the wood comes from our very own bosque when our crews go in to clear out trees to help reduce the risk of fire. Half a cord of wood is only $10. You can fill out your tag at the Village office and then head over to the fire department to load up your firewood. The money goes to helping our fire department do what they do.
Halloween is fast approaching, and we are excited to be hosting Trunk or Treat again! This is a great opportunity for the community to trick or treat in a safe space with great activities all around. If you have any questions call our Parks and Recreation department at 899-8900. We really appreciate any candy donations you might have for us. The more candy we have, the more participation we can have. If you or someone you know wants to donate candy for Trunk or Treat you can drop it off outside the Police Department, at the Fire Station, or at the Recreation Center.
As the Corrales Soccer Club wraps up its season, the Corrales Youth Basketball League is getting ready to hit the court at the end of the month.

If you have any questions call Parks and Rec at 899-8900 or visit the website https://campscui.active.com/orgs/VillageofCorrales to register.

Only a few more chances to make it out to the Grower’s Market before they start their winter hours.
Have a great weekend
