Headlines - Life Events and Recent News:

Hi Everyone ! I have a couple of requests to ask of all of us. When you take your dogs out for a walk, please try to let them relieve themselves as close to the edge of the road as possible and not let them walk up into people's yards. I've watched some people actually walk up on their neighbor's lawn with the dog while he relieves himself. You can do that in your own yard, but please don't do that in other peoples yards. Your neighbors will thank you! Also, if you're at the community building, PLEASE shut the lights out on your way out! I am in and out of there numerous times during the week and when I see lights on and nobody's there, I see $$$'s. We pay the electric bill and it has been very high. We can all help keep the cost down by shutting off the lights behind us.  I want to thank all of our wonderful committees for all their hard work and accomplishments they've made over the past year! These great volunteers have done a tremendous job for our community and I couldn't be more proud of them!  We also have wonderful volunteers that are not on a committee but help out any way they can and they are very much appreciated ! Heartfelt thanks to all of you! We hope you're happy with the work that was done to remove the uprooted stumps! John Fellini did that job for us and he did a great job of filling in and grading the holes where the stumps were! Thank you for a job well done, John!  

…….. Nancy Froio
