PLANTS-All three pools have three large planters, three medium sizes, and one hanging basket. These are maintained by myself and the Continental Pool manager, Alexis, and a Lakeside resident, Helen Harper.
Beds along Christopher’s Crossing have been planted with summer flowers and maintained. There are some plants that will be replaced by Rupperts in the fall as they have failed. This will be at no cost to the association.
POOLS-Pool furniture at all three pools was stored inside for the winter. Three umbrellas (2 7’ and 1 9’) were missing along with the base for the larger umbrella. The umbrellas have been reordered and arrived. We have not ordered the base as of this time. I would like to make a motion under new business to plants at Greenleaf. Half over the fence, I found a lounge chair inside the baby pool.
SOCIAL-The Fourth of July bicycle parade was held on July 2 at Whittier Lake. The HOA provided a DJ to play patriotic music. The cost for his service was $175. There was no other cost as we had leftover prizes from last year. Two of our residents and committee members provided a beautiful balloon arch and frames for picture taking. These members were TJ Hairfield and Karen Raymond. I would like to thank the Board for supporting this event again this year and helping to make it a memorable and fun event for all. I did contact River and Trail, hoping they would provide their boats. However, there was no interest on their part. Sommerford was also contacted as their residents enjoy seeing the children and hearing the music. I’d like to thank the following people who helped make this event successful: TJ Hairfield, Kara Smith, Paul Zimnik, Karen Raymond, Dave Latch, and Jack Weaver.
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE READING- At eight pm on July 2 on the hill opposite the lake Jack Weaver did a simple reading of this historic document will a simple review of what preceded its origin.
Advertisements for these events were provided by our own HOA blast along with the Whittier Elementary School blast. Signs were also at each pool in addition to both Facebook sites.
FALL CRAFT FAIR-Plans are being made for this event to be held on Sunday, October 15. Costs will be explored and presented to the Board for approval at the August meeting. A committee will have to be formed as soon as possible. The event will be held in the Cobblestone parking lot as in the last two years.
