Notes from the Office:
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.

Notes from the Board:
What Kind of Park Do You Want to Live In?
A place that is well maintained, a lot of activities, people who are active and involved in making all of the above happen? How about a place that is not active, where nobody really cares what goes on and wants to enjoy all the benefits of the amenities, but shun any involvement?
Unfortunately we are headed for the latter case unless owners wake up and live up to the responsibilities of ownership in Heritage Ranch. This park is operated by the lot owners who must be involved in order to make things happen.
We need every person who is able to be a member of a committee, run for the Board of Directors, attend board meetings so you know what's going on in the park, volunteer when asked to help set up for meetings or dinners.
We are asking every owner to step up and ask what he or she can do to help keep our park the nice place it is. Don't be the one who lets the other guy do it. May of the faithful few are getting worn out and have to step down. The park NEEDS YOUR HELP to continue to be the place we want to live in.
The Board of Directors
Lot inspections will start in January. Check your electric meter box, some need painting. Also, check excess storage on the driveway or in the back of the lot.
Keep you dogs or cats on just the streets only, and not on any other common area. ( that means no grass or path)
Architectural Board Advisor
Once again, we appreciate donations of books if they are in good condition. We do not want to put books on the shelves that are ready for recycle. We would appreciate a call before you bring full boxes. We are available most days. Leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

We'll be starting up the Craft Corner again beginning October 2 at 9:30 a.m. in the All Purpose Room.
Come join us for new ideas, chat, and bring your craft projects to share. Make new friends, and learn new skills. Some classes with materials will be available.
I had not intended to start eh 2014/2015 season Jam Sessions until November, but I have had many requests to start earlier. So, we're back officially October 7th. There should be me, Donny, Bill, Red, and John. Lee, Brian, and hopefully Dennis will start Nov. 18th.
Remember November 4th is the Election Day, and November 11th is Veterans Day, so no Jam Sessions those days. See you October 7th!
Ice Cream Social
The Activity Committee is hosting a BIRTHDAY BASH and ICE CREAM SOCIAL on Friday, Oct 10th in the Ballroom between 1:00 - 2:00
So bring your spoons and we'll supply everything else, for a build your own sundae.
This social is free to all residents, and if you have friends or family here in the Ranch, you can bring them along for only a $2.00 charge for each guest.
The Bible Study group will be hosting this months Pot Luck on October 18th.
Encourage your neighbors to come, or if they are shut-ins, please let us know as we can take them a meal that evening. We have a couple that are willing to deliver them, so call me with their name and lot number. Who know, maybe some day you may need a meal!
Also we are asking that all the attendees bring can goods for the "Restart" box, and add a serving or two to your Pot Luck food for the shut-ins.
Happy Hour - 4:00
Dinner - 5:00

This years craft fair will be November 8th, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Applications have been mailed!

If you can help out, or need an application, give me a call at 619-504-6360.
