This winter has been mild for the most part and I can tell you that myself and the maintenance staff are very happy about that. I hope that by the time you read this article that this is still the case. To those of you brave pickle-ball players out there still playing, I am very impressed by your dedication. I would also like to sincerely thank you for the photos and kind messages. I hope that you’re able to use the courts throughout the entire winter.
I see that the golfers are out playing also, and I admire their dedication as well. The golfers are playing through a slight war zone these days between holes seven and nine. However, this is a small price to pay as we should have a brand-new irrigation system fully operational in the spring. This has been a three-year project and I am extremely happy to report that it has been going very well. To date, all piping has been run, and we are in the process of filling in the holes. I am confident that the course will be in excellent shape by the spring.
I wanted to use this article to discuss how much love is important in everyone’s life. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I felt that this would be a perfect time to broach this topic. Love has several different meanings and it is important to know that many of them are not of a romantic nature. I love my family, friends, staff, and many other people in my life. Love is what provides all of was with a sense of fulfillment and belonging. Whether you love someone or they love you; it will always provide security. The fact that I know my nieces love me always makes me feel happy and honored to have them in my life. I urge all of you to cherish those that you love and never take any of them for granted.
I can’t believe that yet again I have to talk about Groundhog’s Day. I truly don’t know where the time goes anymore. I feel like I just wrote about this last month. However, it turns out that it has been a year. I have written approximately forty articles in this Newsletter at this point as the Administrator. I think we can all agree that the content hasn’t improved over time 😊. I always try to touch on the current status of the community and will continue to do so. So in regards to the groundhog let’s all hope for a cloudy day. To those of you that don’t know the reason for this, I recommend you look it up and challenge your friends to some Covid trivia.
I really do hope that a time comes in the near future in which we no longer have to mention Covid. It will be a year next month that we have been dealing with all of these restrictions and closures and I know we all want to move on. To those of you that have lost loved ones during this, you have my sincere condolences.
I wish all of you a Valentine’s Day filled with love and happiness.
Happy President’s Day to everyone as we honor George Washington officially. However, allow us to honor all of the Presidents that have served this Country.
Ash Wednesday is February 17th and is the start of Lent to those of you that honor this. I wish you nothing but the best during your season of reflection. For myself, I have not decided what I will be giving up this year.
