EPNA Fall 2020 Newsletter


The Enderis Park Neighborhood has enjoyed its long-time tradition of hosting our very popular Nighttime Trick or Treat event. The coronavirus pandemic, recent CDC recommendations, and the current increase in the number of active COVID-19 cases have made this year’s decision to continue this event very challenging. With these things in mind, the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association Board has cancelled the 2020 Nighttime Trick or Treat event. This decision was not an easy one and was made solely out of consideration for the safety, health and well-being of all of our Enderis Park neighbors and their many guests and family members who join in the festivities every year.

We are planning several frighteningly fun alternative Halloween adventures for you and your family with safe ideas that will keep your Halloween spirit a glow.

Please reference Nextdoor, Facebook,, and EPNA email for more information in the coming weeks.



Join in the spirit of Halloween – decorate your house and yard! 6 winners will receive a lawn sign, a mention in the EPNA Newsletter, Nextdoor, a picture on our Facebook page and, last but not least – BRAGGING RIGHTS!

Judging will occur after dark on Friday, October 30, because Halloween decorations are best viewed in the dark! Decorating suggestions include:

Most Decorative – fall flowers and leaves, wreaths with autumn leaves, friendly ghosts and witches, artistic scarecrows, pumpkins, orange lights, etc.

Most Scary – vampires, tombstones, scary witches and ghosts, bats, howling dogs, etc.

Use your imagination! Winners of the past two years are ineligible, so the field is wide open. All are invited to participate!!


We will be unable to host Harvest Fest this year due to MPS not allowing any park permits due to COVID-19. We look forward to seeing you next year!


Thank you to all who have already renewed membership in EPNA. We encourage those who have not done so to consider all of the benefits that EPNA brings to our neighborhood and consider a membership contribution.

We rely heavily on memberships, generous neighbor and business sponsor contributions, and the tireless volunteer efforts of EPNA members and friends, in order to provide events and activities.

During this challenging time of COVID-19 we found it necessary to cancel many of our favorite events and activities. We are committed to bring back our valued activities as soon as we can provide safe and healthy events that meet the CDC, state, and local recommendations.

Despite the fact that many of your events were postponed or cancelled this year, the important work of the Association continues. Your membership supports many ongoing operating expenses including the cost of insurances, annual Web fees and other routine maintenance costs. Costs also include landscape management and beautification projects at Squirrel Park and Triang
