Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone!

Instead of sending holiday cards in the mail with a stamp, we'd like everyone to bring their cards to the clubhouse with names and street addressed on the envelopes between December 10th and December 13th.

The cards will be sorted according to streets. You may then pick up yours cards at the clubhouse on December 17th, 18th, & 19th.

Volunteers are needed.

Winter Checklist

Winter is almost upon us. I can almost hear the Christmas carols playing in the Mall already! We’d like to share a few little reminders of what you need to do to get your home ready for winter.

Please make sure your foundation vents are closed. If you walk around your home, you will see vents or grates set into the foundation. They are open in the summer, for ventilation, but should be closed in the winter time, to help keep the heat in, and stop your pipes from freezing.

If you have a hose connected to your outside faucet, please disconnect it. If you leave it connected, you run the risk of freezing the waterline into your home. When the hose remains connected, it does not allow the water to drain out of the faucet. Also make sure your heat tape switch is in the “on” position. The switch will be in your utility room, and should be marked, or may be a red switch. If there is not a switch in the utility room, your heat tape is hard wired, and doesn’t need to be turned on.

The change of seasons is a good time to remember to replace your heater filter. You should do this at least 4 times per year, for better air quality, and optimal performance of your heating and cooling systems. Another good idea is to check all of your windows, and make sure they are closed and the latch is cranked down tight, to seal in the heat inside your home for the winter.

We will have the landscaper come around and winterize the irrigation system in your yard shortly. They will make sure the system is turned off, and then blow out all the lines with an air compressor. This will make it ready for winter, so don’t try to turn it back on, or you will have broken lines, when spring comes for sure.

Enjoy the fall weather!
