Beware of Solicitors:
Just a reminder that Heritage Ranch does not allow solicitors in the park. If someone comes to your door, soliciting money or services, and you haven't asked them to be there, please ask them to leave the park, and notify the office.
South Pathway Upcoming Work
The Board voted in May's Board Meeting to remove the oleanders along the south wall, and replace them with mostly Italian Cypress.
The expected schedule will be as follows:
Week of June 9th Remove oleanders
Week of June 16th Paint Wall
Week of June 23rd Plant Cypress
The Ballroom will be closed June 23rd thru June 29th for the floor to be refinished. Please do not enter the ballroom during this time.
TIME WARNER CHANGES:
As advertised on TV over the last month, Time Warner is going all digital as of June 3rd.
If all of your TVs already have digital equipment attached (digital set-top box, retail CableCARD device or a digital adapter) you will automatically receive this improved signal.
However, if your cable line is plugged directly into your TV, VCR, or DVD recorder, you will need to order a Digital Adapter to avoid losing your picture.
Time Warner will provide these Adapters free of charge to customers through 12/31/2015. Beginning 1/1/2016, each adapter will cost $1.50 per month.
Contact Time Warner to have mailed free, or delivered for a fee. Contact them at:

May 17th we had about 35 people get together for great food and friendly communications. All in all a good time was had by all.
I want to thank all those who helped with the table set ups, table arrangements and clean up. I also want to thank everyone who prepared the food and attended. It's all of you who make the potlucks a success.
My husband and I will be gone for most of the summer but that doesn't mean the end of the potlucks. June 21st is the next gathering, hosted by the "Bunco Girls". So come join in for fun, food, and friendship in the Heritage Ranch Ballroom.
Harmonizers will be singing/rehearsing from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm every Thursday evening in the ballroom. Please come and listen (and sing with us).
Friday the 4th of July we will have a celebration in the ballroom beginning at 11:00 a.m. for games and socializing and eating at 1:00 p.m. The menu will be BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Cole Slaw, Beans, and Dessert. Tickets are $6.00 per person and will be sold by the Activity Committee and the office and will be available June 16th.
Make sure you get your tickets early; you don't want to miss a good meal & great fun

Crafts will be on hold for June and July, restarting in August. When we start again Linda Sheehan will be bringing new craft project for us to learn. You don't have to be an experienced crafter; most projects are easy to learn.
Also, Nancy Manning, Jan Morris, and Jacquie Grant have many years experience in several crafts such as knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, plastic canvas, hardanger, lacy scarf's, quilting, and many other craft projects, will be here to help you get started or solve any problems you may be having.
So watch upcoming newsletters to find out the day and time for the Crafter's Corner. Come join us and bring the current craft project you are working on. This is a good place to meet people since we are a usually small group.
Sit & Fit Chair Exercises:
This exercise class will be suspended for the summer months. Watch for it to start up again in the fall.
