" Thank You For Your Service "

Headlines - Life Events and Recent News:

Hi Everyone !   Here's a couple of reminders for all of us that may not have been seen before:

The Office is no longer accepting cash as a means of payment for your lot fee. You may pay by personal check, bank check, money order, etc. but, please, no more cash. Thank you.

We are still working on getting the tree's taken down that need it. It's very difficult to get vendors to get back to us in a reasonable time with a proposal. We have a couple, but we're waiting for a couple more. Thank you for your patience. 

The visiting nurse will be here on Monday, Nov. 26th for anyone that would like to get their vitals checked. This is a free service and it is held at Henrich Hall from 12:30 - 1:30 pm.  

Please don't forget to fill out an Alteration/Upgrade form for any work you would like done on the outside of your home.

Example: a new carport, new siding, new roof, addition to your home, widen your driveway, etc.

 ….………………………………… Thank You Nancy Froio

Community Tip: With the leaves and pine needles coming down along with all the rain we have been getting it doesn’t take much to block the storm drains if you are out doing your lawn or out walking the dog or just taking a walk and there is one by your home it would be a great help to all to remove the debris so the water can drain a bit better and faster. Just one way of helping all of ourselves being a resident owned community. For those who already do this thanks for the suggestion and being a good neighbor and thanks for being a great owner and part of the community !

A Musical NoteImage result for musical notesFrom Rick Darling:

Beginning Sunday, Nov 11, 2018, our singing group will meet Sunday nights, 6:00PM at Henrich Hall.  If you have recently moved to the park, "Welcome", and I invite you to come join us or stop by and listen in! The group consists of @15-20 singers and one 'live piano' player, (that would be me!) It is very casual and a great night out for those who love music! We are currently working on Christmas songs for our annual performance at the Hall on Sun, Dec 16th, @ 1:00PM. Hope to see you at our next practice, or at the show !


Registrations are due for everything in the RV LOT by November 30th then a copy to office please and Thank You !

Today - November 11th - Most importantly Is of course Veterans Day, But it is also International Tongue Twister Day so try this one out :

 I saw a saw that could out saw any saw I ever saw saw. If you happen to see a saw that can out saw the saw I saw saw I'd like to see the saw you saw saw. .….…whew !


Trivia - What now is known as Veterans Day started as what holiday ??


 Did You Know ? - That American troops made significant headway in 1918, rebuffing a German offensive along the western front and moving Allied forces deeper into enemy territory. By November, Germany had had enough. It agreed to a cease-fire, signing the official armistice at 5 a.m. on November 11. The treaty took effect six hours later.


Weekly Laughs -  A woman walks into a library and asked if they had any books about paranoia. The librarian says "They're right behind you!" - What do you call a guy with a rubber toe? Roberto. - Why did the man fall in the well? Because he couldn't see that well. - Did you hear about the Italian chef that died? He pasta way. - My wife accused me of being immature. I told her to get out of my fort. - Doing nothing is hard, you never know when you're done. -Doesn’t expecting the unexpected make the unexpected expected? - When you're right, no one remembers. When you're wrong, no one forgets. - Birthdays are really good for you. Statistics show that people who have the most live the longest. - Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. - Why did the coffee file a police report? It got mugged. - 5/4 of people admit that they’re bad with fractions. - What kind of room has no doors or windows?…… A Mushroom ! -

That's all Folks !   .................................Till Next Week !

 Extra Joke ! -  I'm so good at sleeping. I can do it with my eyes closed. ...........................................rat a tat tat !


Trivia  Answer - That would be Armistice Day ! ( See Did You Know ? )
