There Goes The Bride
Thursday May 7th at
The Rainbow Dinner Theater in Lancaster PA.

"
Join us for the wedding of the year! As a socially prominent family prepares to wed their daughter to the son of an equally upper-crust set of in-laws to be, what's the worst that could happen? You can't even imagine! After an unexpected whack on the head, the father of the bride begins seeing a 1920's flapper, unfortunately no one else can! This makes the new in-laws very nervous and when the bride lets slip that she is already acquainted with the birds and the bees, the wedding is almost called off. Just when you think it's on, it gets called off again and again, each time for reasons zanier than the last. RSVP with your reservation for one of the funniest shows in years." WEBSITE.

Questions about Clubhouse Rules


There have been a number of questions regarding the Clubhouse rules changes we sent out. The additions to the rules (the last 3 items on the second page) were generated by the clubhouse committee, and added to the existing rules. No other changes were made. Most of the questions we received were regarding the existing rules, and after reviewing them, we think we can update these, and improve them, with your input.

What we’d like to do is meet with a few residents (4-6 individuals) and go through all the clubhouse and pool rules and update them. We’ve found this type of collaborative approach is the best way to work on these types of revisions. We’ll work from the existing rules, and try to get copies from other communities to use as a reference as well.

At the next Management –Resident meeting, on the 26th, we’ll organize who would like to help out in the rewrite, and get them copies of the material they’ll need. We should be able to complete this in 2 meetings, so let’s plan on meeting on Thursday, April 2nd, and the following Thursday, the 9th at 11AM. Once we have them finalized, we’ll resend the new rules out to all the residents, and they will take effect in 60 days.

If there are residents who will not be able to attend, and have comments they’d like to be included, please send thm to Jill, and we’ll bring them up with the group. Thanks for your help and understanding!

Follow Up: Monthly Management Forum

We wanted to follow up briefly on our Feb. management meeting, specifically regarding the idea of a community garden area. The best location we could come up with is between Daffodil Rd, and the fence, across from the intersection of Daffodil and Lavender, just past the club house. This is community common area, with good sun. It’s easily accessible by all, but in an unobtrusive spot. We’ll need an idea of how large to make it for this year. We can always enlarge it in future years as needed.

We’ll have our crew remove the sod in that area, bring in a load of mushroom soil and roto-till it in with the existing top soil, for a good planting bed. We can look into a low, attractive perimeter fence if needed. Can those of you who expressed an interest get together, and work with Jill on how you want to proceed? Let us know the size first, so we can get moving. Planting time is just around the corner ( I’m told that peas should already be in the ground!) Happy Spring!!

Weight Watchers Support Group


Hello Neighbors! This is Louis Aquino.

I have shared my interest in starting a Weight Watchers support group at the Clubhouse with some of our neighbors whom I know are following the official WW program.

The idea has been received well, and we plan on having our first meeting on:
Thursday, March 12, from 11:00a.m. to 12:30p.m.

The first meeting will be mostly organizational in nature, and we will discuss the particulars of the meeting format and future meeting dates in greater detail.

This group will give members the opportunity to share the ups and downs of their previous week as related to their weight loss progress. We will also share strategies that we use to help ourselves stay on track, as well as our favorite recipes or food products that we incorporate into our weekly menus to add variety and interest.

We welcome anyone who is following the Weight Watcher program, either on their own or by attending the official group meetings. The support group will serve to remind us that we are not alone in dealing with our weight issues and give us the extra shot in the arm we may need when we get discouraged with our progress.

Please forward this message to anyone you know who is following Weight Watchers and may wish to join us. I will also put a sign up at the Clubhouse.

Committee members and office personnel, kindly inform me if there is any conflict with the proposed meeting time or plan. Hopefully, by next month we can add the support group to our monthly calendar. If the group decides to keep the Thursday morning time slot on a permanent basis, we will of course forfeit our meeting on the last Thursday of each month when the community meets with Andy and Jill.

Regards and thanks to all,
Louis Aquino

Feb 27th Management Blog


We had a good Resident-Management meeting yesterday. There was lots of discussion on the activities and events, which Jill will cover separately. It really seems to be working out well, with lots of folks participating, and plenty of enthusiasm. I love the pictures from the Valentines Day party. Thanks to Bobbie for being the photo bug that night! If other residents have digital photos of community events that want to get posted, talk to Jill, and she’ll get them up on the blog for you.

We did address a few issues that I’d like to follow up on. We are making the changes suggested by the Clubhouse committee, to the clubhouse code of conduct rules. We will be sending them out shortly, and they will take affect in 60 days. We will verify whether we need 1 or 2 more tables, plus 8 more chairs, and get them ordered, along with some additional silverware. We have an additional security light orders, thru DEC, for the club house. It will be at the far ends of the circle, lighting up that area, and the end of the ramp as well. Mr. Panzig was there to help show the area that needed more lighting. It may take a number of week, but we have the process started. Also, Jim is taking care of the microwave turntable issue.

We are looking into options for the glass table in the clubhouse, and considering a community garden area, and where it might be located. We’ll report more on those issues either back in this blog, or at the next Resident-Management meeting. The next one is scheduled for Thursday, March 26th, at 11AM. Enjoy this early spring weather while it lasts!
