The residents of Mesa Heights would like to give a big thank you to the Alley House Grille, Farrago, The Back Room Wine Bar, First Crush Olive Room and Kip’s Grill and Cantina for the candy they sent up to Mesa Heights to be distributed to the Halloween trick-or-treaters. Your help was very much appreciated. The count for kids was somewhere to be 700 to 800 children. Everyone had a good time. I have watched these children grow up; now, they bring their children.

The residents of Mesa Heights would like to take the opportunity to thank the owners and their families of Alley House, Farrago, The Back Room Wine Bar, First Crush Olive Oil Room, Kip’s Grill and Cantina and the USJHD EMS for their donations made for Halloween. Another successful Halloween for the kids and families that trick or treat in our neighborhood. Candies were brought to each of our residences and donations from EMS were made in giving us a hand for a large group that we receive each year and that is growing. Your thoughtfulness and consideration is greatly appreciated by Mesa Heights residents making this so fun and safe for the kids, our kids and families.
