Register to vote by Oct. 5

Jan Vargo - Huber Heights City Council, At Large

Did you know the Huber Heights library will have a special program for teens who are interested in becoming thespians?

The program is called “Audition Success” and will help you in the future when you audition for parts in a play. This particular program will give you tips on choosing a monologue, doing cold readings and how to build an acting resume.

This program will be presented Saturday, Sept. 19 at 1 p.m. at the Huber Heights library. They also plan a second presentation on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 1 p.m. Another class of “Intro to Acting” will be held on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. that you will want to consider taking. You will also receive information at the program about other FREE programs available through various arts organizations in the area.

Did you know the last day to register to vote is Oct. 5?

You will have the opportunity to decide who will lead your community in the future as well as vote on the very interesting marijuana issue. However, only people who are registered voters will make that decision. So, go to the library, post office, Wayne High School or the Department of Motor Vehicles and get yourself registered if you want to be involved in things that affect your daily life.

Did you know there will be a City Wide Neighborhood Watch meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 30?

The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the police station, 6121 Taylorsville Road at 6:30 p.m. I encourage all to attend who are interested to hear from our Public Affairs Unit what has been happening in Huber Heights or how you can start a Neighborhood Watch in your neighborhood.

Everyone is welcome to attend. We had great attendance the last time a city wide meeting was held. I’m sure there will be many folks there again with stories to tell and questions to ask, concerns to share and hopefully, ideas to discuss. Please come with any ideas you may have to help our community.

Did you know this will be my last column?

It was explained last week that the Courier has a policy that anyone on the ballot cannot write for them until after the election. Since I don’t know if I will win or lose, I will say now it has been a pleasure for me to share items of interest that are happening in Huber Heights and the area. I have always wanted our residents to know what is happening in the city and I believe this column has indeed kept you up to date with what Council is doing.

Thank you to all who have let me know they read what I wrote. Your comments are what has kept me writing every week. My belief is that communication is one of the most important things between elected officials and the community. I will say for one more time. I do not consider myself a politician, rather, I am an “elected official.”
