BRUNCH Activities will be having the Brunches through the winter months so that means we will have to move it to the first Saturday of the month and we will be serving 9:00 am.
The Brunches have been doing really good through the summer months and it has been a lot of fun. So we wanted to share it with all of the snow birds as well.
Our next Breakfast will be Saturday,
October 3 and we will be serving biscuits and gravy with sausage, eggs
and fruit. Don't forget to get your ticket, cost is $5.00,
from the office or from Kathe Slack, 505-2190. Hope to see your there!

SATURDAY NIGHT PARTIES - 10/10/2015 also on 10/24/2015. Looking for something fun to do on Saturday evenings, but don't want to go far from home?
Well, come on down to the ballroom for our "Saturday Night Parties". We will have Karaoke, dancing, $1.00 tacos, soft drinks and good fun socializing. It all starts at 6 pm and goes until the fun is done.
We will continue these Parties when

LABOR DAY - This year Activities decided to do something for Labor Day so we thought of a barbeque with Hamburgers and Hot Dogs came to mind. Activities has not done anything on that day in a long time and it was a long overdue event. Bear (John) Slack, Jim Netterville and Richard Windish were on grill duty. Kathe Slack, Evelyn Serrato, Colleen May, Joleen Mertz, Sawnee Poole, Sawbee, Linda Hull, Frank Smith and anyone else I forgot that had kitchen duty, set-up and clean-up. We had hamburgers, Veggie burgers, Hot Dogs, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad and Ice Cream. Activities provided the group called "4 The Good Times" and they were good. We had 69 residents attend and 26 guest, our profit was $247.06 our turn out was great and it looked like everyone was having a lot of fun. Hope to have this event next year!
I want to thank everyone that came to help set up, prepare the meal and clean up. THANK YOU. Each event would not happen if we didn't have these wonderful helpers.
CRAFT FAIR - This years craft fair will be November 7, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Applications have been mailed. I'm also looking for volunteers to help out with distributing fliers, putting up signs, set up/break down/clean up, kitchen duties, and raffle table/tickets/announcers. If you can help out, or need an application, give me a call.
ACTIVITY BUDGET - The Activity budget for July 1, 2015 through June 30 2016 has been approved and submitted to the Activities Board Advisor along with the final July 1, 2014 through June 30 2015. If your group is receiving monies from activities please check to see what has been budgeted for said group. All expenditures need to be approved before money is spent and receipts turned into the Activities Chairperson for signature and reimbursement. Please keep in mind that the budget is not based on money we have but on money the committee is expecting to receive. Nothing is set in stone.

OTHER RANCH NEWS
Resident Letter: My name is Marcy and I have lived in Heritage Ranch for about two years. I love it here! My sister does too and she is looking for a place in the Ranch. This is where the problem comes in. Three different times, while driving slowly through the Park looking for available property, we have been stopped. Each time the person rudely and accusingly asked us why we are in the Park. My sister is getting the impression the Ranch is not a very friendly place to live and having second thoughts. It is not true that the Ranch is an unfriendly Park, but that is the reputation we may be getting, I am afraid.
I am wondering if we need to stop someone we do not recognize in the Park, maybe we could be more friendly and helpful while at the same time getting the necessary information. Tell them about the book in the office with the listings if they are looking for a place. If they are lost be a little friendlier while still protecting the Park. The person who is a stranger today may end up as your neighbor, on a committee with you or Bunco. What do you think? Marcy Calagna
