The more the merrier.

We are also still accepting items for the raffle basket. If you would like to contribute, please let Rebekah know by Sunday. Items we need: wine, gift certificates to local shops/restaurants, tickets to events, etc. elrebekah@gmail.com Membership dues support our presence in the neighborhood, beautification projects, safety, deed restriction enforcement, printing of fliers, parties and much more.

Many thanks to Liuda Flores for these "repurposed" signs!

Curbside recycling is scheduled to take place in our neighborhood every other Monday. Our pickup was missed a few times recently. However, we are working on that and trying to increase the participation in the neighborhood by reminding everyone when to put out their recycle bins. These reminder signs went out in the neighborhood over the weekend. Many thanks to Liuda Flores for getting the signs for us and painting them with the correct day. Thank you to the block captains for taking on this new responsibility to help us increase recycling in our neighborhood. Recycle bins must be put out by 7am on our recycle day. If you put your item out on time and your pick up is missed, please call 3-1-1 to report.

In other news, construction is nearly complete at 1850 Norfolk and the home will be opening for a grand event Wednesday evening. One of our local real estate agents asked that we let each of you know that there will be a party this Wednesday bringing a large number of people and cars to our neighborhood. So please be aware of this as our neighborhood is showcased this week.

Have a great week and we hope to see you Monday evening!
