The attendance at the HOA Meeting last night was sparse, but most of
the regulars were there. The Board appreciates everyone's
attendance because it shows you care about our community. We also
care, or we wouldn't be there. We covered a multitude of topics,
some or all of them, which may be of interest to you.
I always wonder where to start, the good news first, or the not so good news first. Okay, good news wins.
The Holidays are upon us again! I don't know about you, but the
older I get the quicker the year goes. It seems like only
yesterday it was summer. Now we have our beautiful holiday
decorations displayed in the clubhouse. You really should take a
look. Darlena, Kurt and Maggie did an outstanding job. Even
if you don't go to the clubhouse you probably go in and out of the gates
where the holiday decorations just magically appeared. I know
there are a number of residents involved in this endeavor, so I won't
try to name them all as I know I would miss someone. I will just
say thank you to all who participated and know your efforts are greatly
appreciated by one and all. It is a wonderful effort you give to
Our Holiday dinner is Saturday, December 8th. If you don't already
have your reservation you probably will miss out on this wonderful
tradition. For those of you who have made a plan to attend, wear
your loose clothes because Yolanda is preparing a traditional holiday
dinner for us, to include pumpkin pie!
Don't forget, we won't be having an HOA Meeting in December. The
meeting in January is our annual meeting with the election and election
results. If you are interested in running for the Board, the
application deadline is December 3rd. Each position has a two-year
run. This is always an exciting time for the community when we
find who our leaders will be for the next year.
Darlena gave a great comprehensive report on the new gym
equipment. She made a well put together proposal and the board
approved it with a caveat to include new rubberized flooring. The
old machines will come out first, the new flooring installed and then
the new equipment brought in. We will be keeping one of the
treadmills and the newer elliptical bike, all other equipment will be
replaced with newer, more up to date equipment. This should be
happening soon so keep an eye on your email as an announcement will be
made when the gym closes for the upgrade.
Strange cars and strange people have been seen in our community!
These folks were seen looking into parked cars. If you can get
your vehicles into your garage that is the safest thing to do. If
you need to park on your driveway, make sure you either remove or hide
all things that might be of interest to someone who has no
scruples. It has been said that you should also remove your
electronic gate/garage door opener and registration and insurance papers
(anything with private information). If you see someone who looks
suspicious, call the police! You may just save one of your
neighbors from a traumatic loss. "If you see something, say
One last thing the Board approved was to turn off the pool heater for
the winter months beginning December 1st until late March to be fully
heated again on April 1st. Last year we heated the pool during
December, but it was a warmer year. This year isn't as nice, we
didn't feel the added cost to heat the pool was a wise use of our money.
My best wishes to you and your families during this Holiday
Season. Enjoy a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah or whatever your
choice of Holidays is.
