Headlines - Life Events and Recent News:

Hey this is an exciting time of year coming up with all of the different holidays that will soon be here ! Let's not forget about our neighbors ! ! ! It only takes a second to make sure our friends and neighbors are doing OK !  A friendly hello a wave or a knock on the door to see if all is good, especially if you haven't seen them for a while.


We are sure that it would mean an awful lot !


 This is why this such a great community because of the caring people we have living here !  .......... JFO




A friend was walking their dog down by the garden area @ Henrich Hall a couple days ago and realized she left behind her walking stick that her son whittled for her which she treasures.  She came back and could not find it.  The owner is very upset that she lost it. Someone said it was seen by the courts on a bench. If Anyone knows where it is or picked it up please email Anne @ 


Reminder: If you have anything @ the RV Lot the Registrations are due end of November.

A Copy of the new registrations must be left @ the Main Office and the new sticker must be on the plate Lets plan on getting that done now as it will make it so much easier.  …… Thanks…….Ted Hunt
