School is in session and the summer is drawing to a close. We are planning on closing the pool on Monday, September 30th. If it looks like we are heading for cooler weather the week before, the pool will close earlier. Please put your key fobs away in a safe place for the winter. We’ve had too many misplaced key FOBS this past summer. The Board along with the pool chairperson will be evaluating the past season and seeing what needs to be done for the 2014 season. If you have any suggestions, make them on our website, either under the Board Section or the Pool Section comment area.

Now that the Fall Season is upon us, we need to start with winter preparations: power washing, removing mold, painting faded shutters, aerating the lawns for spring growth, fertilizing, lime and seeding. As you know, this is the best time to start establishing new lawn growth.

We're still getting numerous complaints about parking in the streets. We ask that you be mindful of your neighbors when parking in the street, the roads are narrow and backing out of driveways can be a difficult task for some. Be aware that children are still playing outside, so drive responsibly.

Many homeowners may be cleaning out their garages and homes prior to the winter. To keep our community looking nice over the weekends, we remind you that garbage and recycle cans should be put out no earlier than Sunday evening and removed within 24 hours of pickup.

Dear Spooktacular Residents,
Halloween is right around the corner and we are excited to begin our annual "Neighborhood Booing!" Here's how it works:

1. You may find a treat on your doorstep with a picture of a ghost and instruction sheet. This means you've been boo'ed. Enjoy the treats and prepare to get your spook on!
2. Hang the picture of "I've been Boo'ed" in your window or on your door. This will help neighbors know you've already been boo'ed.
3. Now it's your turn to "boo" someone else. Make 2 copies of the boo picture and instruction sheet and go to 2 neighbors houses with treats ($5 and under). Each neighbor you "boo" should get 2 copies of the boo/instruction sheet along with the treats you sneak on their porch. This way we keep the booing creeping through the neighborhood.
4. Try to be sneaky when booing someone. It's all part of the fun.
5. Remember...chocolates, like vampires, don't like the direct sun!

The Social Committee will kick off this neighborhood event the first week of October. So be careful, you never know who will be boo'ed first!
