From the President:
Spring has arrived and the schools recess for spring break on April 4 and reopen on April 14. Please be extra careful driving during the break as you can expect children to be at play.
Lawns and shrubbery are coming out from their winter dormancy and will soon need attention. Unlike last year, homeowners will have a limited ability to water existing plants without resorting to the use of “gray water”. For details on when, how, and if, see the website www.outdoorwateruse.com.
We all need to express our appreciation to Erroll Eckford for serving with distinction as Association President for the last 2 ½ years. Erroll is remaining on the Board and will serve as the chair of the ACC for the coming year. Officers for the new year include Jim Martin as Vice President, Steve Young as Secretary and Noel Follrath as Treasurer. Kevin Brown will serve as the director overseeing social activities and Carl Trevathan, as a new director, will serve in various areas.
We will soon be uncovering the pool for the spring and firing up the pumps and filters in a maintenance mode. We will, of course, open on the Memorial Day weekend and will have further details in next month’s newsletter.
We look forward to serving you in the coming year.

Attention Fellow Homeowners
Do you have unresolved service issues with Comcast?
Unfortunately I have become more educated about Comcast than I ever wanted to be.
I have developed some resources to work around 1-800-Comcast.
I only use this when the normal channels fail. Call or e-mail me & perhaps I can help.
