Progressive dinner was a big success
On Thursday April 25, 2013, Downtown Huntington Partners hosted a progressive dinner at many downtown restaurants. Our theme of "Visit Downtown, it's Personal" was on display as 100 diners and hosts visited select restaurants for different courses of a chef-selected house specialty. Each was tasty, well presented and the servers did an excellent job of handling individual needs.
Proceeds will be used to furnish lights for the downtown trees and to purchase bike racks along the newly designated bike lanes.
The community support for the progressive dinner was very evident and much appreciated. Make plans now for our September event!

Annexation is an unnecessary act
This is about the proposed annexation of West Chesapeake.
Just something to think about if you live in the area west of the Village of Chesapeake. If you vote for the annexation, your taxes will increase. Call the auditor's office, and they will tell you how much they will go up.
I have lived in one of the areas east or west of the Village of Chesapeake all of my life and never needed them nor do I need them now. They have nothing to offer us; they need us for money. Do you want another speed trap stretching all the way to the airport?
Just remember, when anyone comes around and asks you to sign a petition for annexation to the Village of Chesapeake, don't sign it. If you sign the petition, that means a vote for annexation, which we don't need. Services provided by Union Township are more beneficial than those the Village of Chesapeake would provide.
There is a lot more I could say about this but it would take a long time. The best thing to do is if they have another meeting, come to it and show them we don't need annexation.
