Money orders and Cashier checks should be avoided, those type of payments can be impossible to track if there is a problem. Staff is here to help if you have any questions. If you are one of our snowbirds or someone that travels a lot and have trouble getting your mailed statements, we have a solution! Go green and start the benefits of eStatements!

The deadline for the application is November 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

4. BOD ELECTION: Board of Directors voting is underway.

5. CLUB EXPO 2019 CANCELLED: A total of 8 clubs out of 49 contacted me to participate. There seems to be no interest for this so Activities will cancel this event for this year and possibly for the years going forward. Sorry to the ones who did call. Thank you Sharon Schafle.

6. COMMUNICATOR: Please note that submissions to the communicator are written by residents with the exception of a few that are directed by the board. Management's submissions deal with issues regarding the building and association, not activities or events that take place.
