Notes from the Board:

Meet the Candidates Night

Following our November 19th Board meeting, we invite all members to stay and meet our candidates who are running for the 2015 Board of Directors. It is an opportunity to chat with each of them and to ask questions. We will have coffee and cookies available.

Ann Wible

Secretary

Notes from the Office:

In October we distributed either by delivery, mail, or e-mail Heritage Ranch Annual Financial Statement for the year ending June 30, 2014. If for some reason you did not receive your copy, please call or come by and we will provide you with a copy.

On November 1, 2014 our volunteers will be delivering to those residents in the park, or mailing for those not in the park our notice for our annual meeting and voting packet for the upcoming board of directors election. The annual meeting will be held on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. in the ballroom. Completed ballots need to be returned before the meeting begins. So, if you don't receive your voting packet, please contact the office.

Neighbors Watching Neighbors

Each and every one of us may need help at some time in our lives. Neighbors can be invaluable. Let's make a point to get to know those around us. We would then know at which time they may need a little help.

A simple thing, such as opening your blinds in the morning to let your neighbor know you are up and fine can be all it takes.

There are some shut-ins, and those who live alone that could use an extra eye on them to make sure they haven't fallen or are in need of some attention.

If we all work together, we can be aware of those in need, those who were just released from the hospital, and could use some temporary help, or those who could just use a friendly visit occasionally.

Let us all be a NEIGHBOR WATCHING A NEIGHBOR.

ACTIVITIES:

Pot Luck:

It was great to see so many of you at the October Pot Luck. Around sixty friends and neighbors joined together for an evening of good food, comradery, and fun. If you missed it this month, we hope you will join us next time.

Sue and I want to thank everyone who helped with the set up and clean up. A special thanks to the Tuesday morning Bible Study group who volunteered to help. All of our volunteers are priceless and without them not much could happen in our park.

Due to the busy holiday schedule in November and December, Pot Luck is cancelled for these two months. Be sure and mark you calendar for the third Saturday in January when Pot Luck will return. We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Linda Sheehan

Activity Committee:

As announced in the board meeting and activity meeting, a few of our current Activity Committee Board Members are resigning at the end of the year. If you'd like to be considered for one of these vacancies, please give your name and info to our Board Advisor, Wanda Park.

Texas Holdem

Texas Holdem will start Nov. 1st. After that date I will no longer chair Texas Holdem. I have chaired this, along with my husband, and with the help of Sandy Machen, for 5 years. Anyone interested in chairing it, contact the Activity committee.

Jo Kepley

Active Aquasize:

Starting November 1, this class' starting time will be moved back to begin at 9:30 a.m.

The Activity Committee

Craft Fair:

We will be having a craft fair in the ballroom, on Saturday Nov. 8, from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. There will be lots of hand made crafts made by many of our residents, as well as crafters from around our valley.

Donuts, coffee, hot-dogs, chips, and sodas will also be for sale by the Activity Committee.

Colleen May

Craft Class:

Come join us for a "Holiday Wreath" class, November 13, at 10:00 a.m. Linda Sheehan and Isabel Cadena will be demonstrating these festive wreaths that you can change for the seasons. After the demo, if you would like to make your own, cost of the supplies will be determined the day of the class.

Veterans Day:

It's time to honor and thank our Veterans again for their service. The date this year is 11/11/14, and will begin at 11:00 a.m. in front of the flag pole.

The Hemet High School ROTC will again be serving as our Honor Guards. Immediately following the flag pole ceremony, everyone is invited into the Ballroom, where we will honor our service men and women, including those who served outside the United States.

The Hemet Harmonizers will entertain us with patriotic songs. Refreshments will be served following the program

Birthday & Ice Cream Bash

They said "LET THEM EAT CAKE" so your activity committee agreed and the second Friday of each month we will be having cake and ice cream for everyone to celebrate the Birthday for people in that month. We will light the candles at 1:15 p.m. Come join in a really good time.
