Please continue to use the recycle cans for cardboard, milk jugs, tin cans and newspaper only. We still need to do our part for the environment by trying to recycle what we can. If you are not sure if it goes in the recycle can or not it would be better to put it in the regular garbage so that the whole recycle can is not disposed improperly.

The weather is turning nicer. Now is the time to improve the aesthetic of your yards and maintain them throughout the year. Please do your part to keep our community beautiful. If you need some help with yard work because of a medical issue, please contact Cheryl in the office. She may have some help available for temporary light yard work.

We recently had a solicitor in the community. Cheryl was called right away by several residents and was able to find them right away and let them know that soliciting is not allowed here. Thank you to those residents who called. If you ever have solicitors come to your door please call management right away., do not wait we don't want residents to be bothered by soliciting of any kind.

Thank you for returning our Resident Update forms so promptly. There are on a few who have not. The information contained on that form is very helpful to management, so we have our current phone numbers and emergency contacts. Remember if you get a new pet, a new pet agreement is required to be on file.
