Notes from the Board:

Water usage:

As you all know, California is in a serious drought. Please limit the use of water for things that you could put off, such as washing your car or RV. If you have a sprinkler system, turn it back a few minutes, or skip a day.

If we all pitch in, it will help California and our water bill!

Jim Pebley



I'd like to invite all our new homeowners to attend our September Board Meeting. You'll get a feed for how our park is governed and someday maybe you'd be interested to be on the board or a committee.

We welcome all of you for choosing our park to be your home. I love it here and hope you do too.

So mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the ballroom.

Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the meeting.

Notes from the Office:

We just received a new order of gate control clickers and along with our normal style, we are trying out a new key fob style clicker.

We'll be coming up on winter baseline and electric rates beginning October 1, 2014. Keep in mind that Edison has two programs to help lower your power bill each month. One is based on your income (CARE), the other is to help if you use specific electrical medical equipment (MBL). We have the applications in the office for both, so just come on by and pick one up. It usually takes about a month after they receive the application for Edison to review and advise you if you qualify.

Upcoming Events:

This news report is for the new people in our park. I'd like to make you aware of a few things that'll be starting up Early Oct. and Nov.

  1. Look for TGIF at the Patio Bar. It'll be Friday's at 4:00. Bring something to share and your drink and join in. All are welcome.
  2. For those of you who might like to play shuffleboard (yeah it's fun), we currently meet Monday's at noon. Everyone welcome.
  3. Heritage Ranch Golf group will be starting up soon. We play Friday at 9:00 a.m. at Golden Era Golf Coarse. Challenging golf coarse, good companionship and new golfers are welcome also.
  4. Jam Session. Ask most anybody and they'll tell you what a great time we have at our Jam Sessions, Tuesdays 1:00 - 4:00. If you sing, dance, play an instrument, or if you just like to stomp your feet and laugh, the place to be is at the Ballroom with Phil, Lee, and the guys & gals at "The Jam Session"

    I know some of you have reservations about group activities, as you may not be used to them, but if you stay home and don't join in, it's a waste of your life and time. So if you have questions, call us or any one of the Activity Committee.

    Welfare Checks

    A committee is being organized to develop a system to check on our shut-ins. We need help determining those neighbors who would benefit from a daily call.

    A meeting will be held Sept. 8th at 10:00 a.m. in the All Purpose room for those interested in helping.

    We are hoping to bring Bingo back to Heritage Ranch, possibly starting the last week in October, and continue every Thursday through March.

    We still need volunteers to help make this weekly event successful. Can you help our? Needed are: callers, sellers, setup, and help with cleanup. If you can help with any of these positions please call Jan Morris or Linda Sheehan. So far we only have three people. Cut off for volunteer sign up's is October 1st.

    Help us bring Bingo back!
