In our quest to be efficient and cost effective for our residents and the community we need to implement some changes: The New Office hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am - to 1 pm ! Deb will be working in the office on Wednesday but will not be available to the residents during  this time. We ask also that the residents use the green locked box in front of the office by the road for all rent checks and general correspondence with the office rather  than directly into the office. ! Please do not put rent checks in the red box in the entryway as that's for complaints only. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to grow.  .........................  The Board of Directors
