The annual Thanksgiving Potluck will be held on Thursday November 15th this year. If you can volunteer your time to help with the preparation of this year’s event, please attend the Social Committee meeting on Monday November 5th and let them know what you can do to help. We need volunteers to help set up and clean up afterwards. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Turkey and ham will again be provided by the owners of Aspens on the Creek. Please sign up a the Community Center and let us know how many people you will be bringing so we will have an idea of how many will be attending.

Help us honor our Veterans at a breakfast on Saturday November 10th from 9:00 - 11:00am at the Community Center. There will be a $5.00 charge for pancakes, eggs, sausage, ham, juice and coffee. Veterans will eat for free. Thank you to all the Veterans for your service.

We would like to welcome our newest residents to our community. #6-Jeffery Edwards, #12 John & Mary Fodge, #136 Linda Anderson, #151 Terri Mitchell & Bill Wigley Jr and #202 William & Emma Robbins.

Leaves will continue to be picked up as necessary for the next few weeks. Please keep the leaves cleaned up around your homes on a regular basis. We know cleaning up leaves is a chore, but the trees are what help make our community looking great, so we must endure the few weeks of falling leaves to be able to enjoy the trees throughout the year. We ask that you make one large pile rather than several small ones as it makes it easier for Kevin to vacuum up. Please keep leaf piles separate from debris piles.

We have been getting complaints about the turkeys in the neighborhood again. Once the turkeys are habituated to receiving supplemental food from humans, it is difficult to change their habits. Therefore, efforts to change their habits must involve everyone. We ask that you please refrain from feeding them. While they are fun to look at, they can be very destructive to property.

We are starting a list for Casoron treatments for your yard to help control weeds in the Spring. If you would like to have this treatment applied to your yard please contact the office. Kevin will start applying the treatment around the end of January into February. The cost is still only $15.00 and will help a great deal in controlling the weeds from sprouting.

Thank you all for keeping your yards cleaned up and looking great. Please do not put your yard debris in your Rogue Disposal garbage or recycle cans for Kevin to pick up. He has experienced garbage mixed in with the yard debris and will no longer empty those cans as he has to go through and pick out he garbage before disposing of the debris. You are welcome to leave the yard clippings in the gray lid cans for Rogue Disposal to pick up, but please do not leave it in the red lid cans. Please purchase a separate can for you yard debris or simply leave it at your curb for him to dispose of.
