Anyone know who owns two pit bulls? HCSD just here to ask if they were mine. N. Allen Road and the RR tracks. They have been hit. One is dead, one is injured.
Hi. Can you put me in touch with the person who is responsible for use of the village softball field? Thank you.
The December meeting of the Village Council has been changed to 7 December at 6:30pm.
Merry Christmas to all. The Wallace family would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to the Allen Area Historical Society and the Bair family for winning this year's Deck the Halls of Allen Village. Come join the Historical Society in the coming spring for the award of fresh baked cookies. We would also like to mention a second place award to the Dooley family. Because the AAHS does not meet until the spring, the original tin of cookies went to the Dooley family. We hope all the community ejoyed the lights and decorations this year and look forward to more in 2020. Merry Christmas!
Time is running out for the Deck the Halls of Allen voting. Hopefully you are waiting to see what homes are going to get a late start. My family informed me that our house can not participate because we are the sponsors. We eat our own cookies anyway. We did put up garland but not lights this year to not distract from the other U.S. 12 (Chicago Street) homes and shops.
when is your trick or treating this year?
Anyone in town or just outside of town need any yard work done? I'm currently on a short layoff from my seasonal job and just need some extra cash.
