President’s comments—President Sandy Leach announced she was changing the format for residents to
pay their dues. instead of having long lines at the beginning of the meeting, there would be forms to fill out and brought up after the meeting to hand them to their respective Area Directors. She briefly mentioned the concept of the green cards for paid members, allowing them to participate in 8 entertainment events for the year at no cost. She asked that everyone attending our meetings should be aware that if the auditorium is not properly returned to the way it was before the meeting, that there would be a fine of $75 assessed by management. So please help us be responsible for cleanup. Sandy also noted that we desperately need volunteers for our committees, after all, this is everyone’s community and the Board is working for you.
1St V. P. Kathy Allen also stressed the need for committee volunteers, and there are signup sheets at the front and back tables.
Secretary Bob Senge presented to the Membership the concept of having the green cards that
constitute 8 entertainment events for paid H O A members that will be totally free, as long as they show their membership card at the events. He also presented the fact that residents who don’t join the H O A would be able to enjoy the same events, but at an additional cost per member yet to be determined.
But that there would be a substantial savings if these residents would join. This would be the Entertainment Committees task to come up with an appropriate $ amount, in conjunction with the Membership Enhancement committee, to which Bob Senge has volunteered for.
There was a comment made from the floor about why not have some extra events for the snowbirds to enjoy, and was assured that the Board will look into this matter in the upcoming work session this month.

scheduled, along with a smoke detector program that would be free to all residents, with a discount
program for the ﬁre extinguishers. These clinics will be addressed asap to schedule for an upcoming meeting.
