Ten years ago, the newly formed Kingwood Chamber came up with a simple idea: neighbors getting together for a morning to pick up trash and make their community beautiful.  Christened "Kleenwood," a Kingwood tradition was born.  Each January, residents in every community across Kingwood meet at their village pool, garbage bags in hand, and do their part to clean up the place they call home.

Bring your menorahs and candles to join in a special Chanukah celebration  at Temple Beth Torah on Friday, December 23, the first night of Chanukah.

The celebration begins at 7:00 PM. Dan Gordon, the rabbi will lead a special Shabbat service that will include the telling of the Chanukah story. The prayers for the first night of Chanukah will be recited, followed by a community lighting of menorahs. It is a breath-taking site to see so many menorahs with candles aglow.
