 LAUNDRY ROOM PATRONS:  During our busy season, please do not leave your clothes unattended.  If they are found in the dryers, they will be removed and placed in the lost and found.  Also, the lost and found basket is overflowing…please be sure to check for any of your items.  Thank you.

PET OWNERS:  Please use the dog parks, or designated dog areas around the retention ponds for letting your dog do his/her business. All deposits should be picked up – even in the dog parks!  When walking your pet, walk your pet down the road, not near sites.  DO NOT allow your pet to use your neighbor’s yard, other sites or the retention pond.

COURTYARD:  As a reminder, the courtyard area(Office/Activities/Pool/Mailroom, etc) is a NON-PET & NO SMOKING AREA

On behalf of the entire Park, I want to take this opportunity to extend a very BIG THANK YOU to ROB SILLS for his very generous donation towards the AED.  His generosity is greatly appreciated and will help in the purchase of the AED, storage cabinet and provide funding for additional batteries and pads.  Thank you!
