Melissa Public Library Halloween Celebration Big Success!
Thanks so much to our community friends who came and shared their information and goodies - Friends of the Melissa Public Library, Melissa Education Foundation, Red Hatters, Thrivent Financial, Melissa Community Outreach, Rotary Club of Melissa, and Collin County Animal Shelter. Another huge thanks to Melissa Feed and Seed for providing the hay bales! The City of Melissa staff were wonderful in creating the door-to-door feel. We loved the police rodeo, the city administration bats and spiders, the finance/HR pumpkin patch, our public works was a-‘maze’-ing, Candy Land in the courtroom, the fire department fellas, and our sock-hop utility billing and development services. Keep an eye out for more photos to be posted on facebook and on the City's official flicker page early next week!
