IMPORTANT INFO FOR ALL RESIDENTS: If you have any branches down in your yard, please bring them out to the edge of the road if you can. Gary Villiard will be around on Tues., Jan. 16th  to do some chipping of branches. This will be a once around the Park event, and will ONLY be for chipping...NO BAGS. We are trying to get as many of the downed branches removed, as possible, before the next storm, which we hope never comes! Thanks for your cooperation and thanks to the Villard's for going the extra mile to help us clean up our beautiful Park ! ..........................  Nancy Froio

The Next HMHEA Inc. Board of Directors Meeting is on Thursday  Jan 18th @ 1pm at Henrich Hall - All Resident Members Welcome !

Hi Everyone ! Here are a couple of reminders from your Board of Directors. As of Dec. 1st, the rent was increased to $593.00. There are still some members that are still paying the previous rent. It is imperative that we all pay the current rent of $593.00 in order for us to be able to pay the mortgage and the bills.  Also, when you make out your check, please don't write $593.xx or $593.-- There's a scanner the checks go through to be deposited and the scanner can not read them if they're made out that way. It would be very much appreciated to have them written out with the zero's at the end, as in $593.00.     We thank you all for your cooperation.
