In Memorial:

Deloris Lamb Dec 14th

Out love and sympathy to their family and friends

Thank You

On behalf of George Lamb, and Ray & Vicki Baker, we would like to thank everyone for the way in which you made the passing of Dodie Lamb so much easier. All of the hugs, tears, cards, food, and condolences helped so very much. Your kind words and genuine love have been very therapeutic. Please feel free to drop in to visit with us. We would love to hear your stories of how she impacted your lives. We will miss her, but we are absolutely celebrating the fact that God has brought her home and she is no longer suffering! She fought the good fight . She never hesitated to talk about her love for her savior Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 "We give thanks to God always for you all, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ" Grace and Peace to our family here at Heritage Ranch.

George Lamb

Ray & Vicki Baker

Notes from the Board:

The Board of Directors wants to thank Marilyn Sabourin and Ole Christiansen along with their crews for the beautiful Christmas decorations in and on our buildings and around our common areas.

What a beautiful sight to enjoy both inside and outside for our Park.

Thank you all and we really appreciate your efforts for the entire park to enjoy

Wanda Park

I've had to do the lot inspections early, due to health issues. So if you receive a notice and you have already fixed your lot, please just call me with your name, phone and lot number, and I will tear up the copy of the notice, so it will not go in your file.

I appreciate the cooperation from all, and I'll be on the Golf Cart soon, I hope!

Wanda Park

Architectural Committee Board Advisor

Thank You's

We also look forward to working with the new Board of Directors come the 1st of January. Colleen & Lilly

Veterans Day:

A lot of thanks goes to Barbara Fritzsche, for the wonderful job, she did putting together the Veterans Day ceremony. We had a large attendance. Thank you for all your hard work.

Phil & Jo Kepley

Thanksgiving Dinner:

Thank you Rose Chorney and your crew for all the work you did, to serve an excellent Thanksgiving dinner.

The food was wonderful, and it was so nice to see so many people we don't see very often.

Thank You Again

Phil & Jo Kepley

Thanksgiving Dinner:

Thank you to all who bought tickets to make our dinner a great success.

Thanks to all who helped in any way - cooking, serving, carving, and clean up.

It was a success and we plan on doing it again next year.

2014 Board:

Thank you, 2014 Board Members, for all the work you did this past year and all the things that were accomplished, to keep our Park a beautiful place to live. Without the genuine interest of a board like you, we would be floundering, in problems that a lot of other Parks like us are experiencing.

Thank you again for all your time and hard work

Phil & Jo Kepley

Activity Committee:

It is hard to end the 2014 season without thanking the best of the best for doing such a good job of running the Activity Committee.

I would like to thank the following people for all their hard work in the past few years on the committee.

JoLee Mertz, Chairman, is retiring;

Peggy McGriff, Secretary/Treasurer, will stay on as the Kitchen person;

Barbara Fritzsche, Scheduler, is retiring;

Sandy Machen, Photo/Flyers, is staying on;

Colleen May, Newsletter/Sunshine Club, is staying on;

Wanda Park, Board Advisor, is staying on.

They all did a great job keeping us active and coming up with great ideas.

Thank you for a job well done. We will miss the ones that are leaving.

Jo Kepley

Notes:

Kitchen Memo:

Again I remind you---when you use the kitchen towels, please take them home, wash, dry, and return. Just leaving them to dry on the racks doesn't get it. Please do your share to keep our kitchen operational.

Food left in the freezer or refrigerator must be labeled and dated. We will be monitoring the kitchen monthly to insure that the food is safe for consumption.

Also, when you use the BBQ, please clean it afterwards. There are BBQ cleaning supplies and tools in the kitchen.

Peggy McGriff

Shuffleboard:

League Shuffleboard is a very good way to meet people, compete against other Parks, and at the same time it's inexpensive, and rewarding.

Our team welcomes people who are interested and willing to spend a little time practicing and learning the fundamentals of shuffleboard. If this is you, call Emil Orlando.

Jo Kepley

Activities:

Also, twice a month I will be offering a specific class for those who wish to come and do a project. Materials will be provided with a fee for the project.

Jan. 9th - Scratch Art. Trace or draw a picture then scratch off to create a very professional looking silver or gold etched picture. Project material fee is $8.00.

Jan 23rd - Crocheted Necklaces. Create a lace looking necklace by crocheting ladder yard. You do not need to know how to crochet! Project material fee is $5.00.

There will be a sign up sheet for these classes so I'll know how much material we will need.
