On Monday, 1/2/2017, Brian Warwick (President KVCC) and Grant Heemer (Treasurer) presented Perkin La Cour with a holiday gift of $4,640 raised by Knollwood Village neighbors. Officer Perkin La Cour wanted to thank everyone for his gift, and said he loves our neighborhood and appreciates your well wishes. He wanted us to let you all know that he hopes you had a fantastic holiday season and wishes everyone a wonderful new year.
The results are in for our annual holiday decorating contest. It was a really tough competition and the judges felt like the first place winners defended their title again this year but many other residents are becoming strong contenders!
Below are the results. We have also included several pictures of the winners.

The KVCC has had two resident meetings so far (Dec 2015 and Sept 2016) where Bethany UMC has presented plans for their proposed senior living project. Bethany has said that the project consists of a four story senior apartment building on the west side of the existing parking lot. We wanted to let you know that additional questions and comments can be directed to Pastor Dan by calling the church at (713) 667-7574. You can also send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bethany has also created an FAQ page at http://bethanyumc.org/seniorliving which provides information on the project.
As always, you can also contact Larry Green’s office:

We wanted to pass along a notice sent to us by the USDA. We’re mentioning it because you may see several USDA employees in the area (and they may be knocking on doors if they see a citrus tree on/near your property.
A confirmed case of Asiatic citrus canker has been found along Brays Bayou greenway in Houston. The suspected plant was reported to authorities via a USDA mobile website called SaveOurCitrus.org on May 11, 2016. The plant was confirmed positive for citrus canker on May 20, 2016. The infected plant was immediately bagged and taped to contain any further infection of nearby citrus plants. The Texas Department of Agriculture in conjunction with the City of Houston removed the infected plant on May 26, 2016.
The USDA is coordinating with state and local officials to respond to this situation as quickly as possible. An interagency response team started a delimiting survey spanning one mile around the original find site on May 23, 2016. Citrus canker spreads quickly and easily to other citrus plants through wind and rain. This is the second citrus canker detection in Texas in the past twelve months. There was a confirmed find in a residential area in Rancho Viejo, Texas, in October 2015. The situation in Rancho Viejo is being contained and no commercial citrus producers have been affected. A quarantine has been established in Cameron County. There is no information available to link the two detections.
Citrus Canker is a disease caused by a bacterium that affects citrus plants causing lesions on leaves, stems and fruit, which can lead to fruit drop as well as defoliation. Citrus canker is not harmful to humans or animals but can easily be transported by human or animal contact with the infected plants. Citrus canker can also be spread by rain, especially when combined with high winds. If someone suspects a plant has been infected, they can report it at http://www.saveourcitrus.org/

On January 10th, we presented Officer Perkin La Cour with his holiday gift that we collected from Knollwood Village residents. Officer La Cour was as gracious and thankful as he always is. Thank you to all who contributed in showing our appreciation for his service.
