          Finally Fall!!! We are so looking forward to cooler temperatures, less humidity and our great Fall Color Season!!
          The fencing on the berm by the new entrance is complete and looks great!  The Landscape committee has been looking at several options to complete some landscaping between the end of the fence and the sidewalk, giving us a polished look when entering the Villas.  They will inform us when a final decision is made.
          With the cooler weather coming, Facilities will be painting the shed to match the Clubhouse.  They have also finished driveway inspections and will be making a priority list. Speaking of painting, we are looking for one or two volunteers to liven up the paint on the entrance sign at Cavaness and Blue Bird.  The sign has not weathered well, and is difficult to see.  All supplies will be made available for the volunteers.  This could be a fun and very helpful project....

FOUND on Winter Wren:  Large keyring with keys.  Contact Becky Tucci for more information.
 
          When will this heat end?  Hope everyone is staying cool and hydrated.  This hot weather is excellent for staying inside and taking it easy.  
 
          The Adagio grass is planted and looks wonderful, and what a difference the new fence makes!  Some final landscaping will be completed at a later date.  The landscape committee will keep you up to date.  We have also been assured that the trees the caterpillars ate the leaves off will quickly come back to life in the Spring.
 
          The 2020 Audit is complete and was accepted by the Board.

Landscape Pruning
Posted on Aug 23rd, 2021
Hi All,  
It has been brought to my attention that some plants have been pruned by the landscapers that people did not want pruned.  It is understood, however,  that when plants are in the mulched area that this may happen unless you are put on a list that says you will take care of your own mulched area.  That includes pruning your own bushes. 

To make this a little less restrictive, we are going to try having residents put something red on the plants they don’t want pruned.  This could be a ribbon, yarn, string….whatever. It must be very visible.  I will inform the landscapers about this.  There still may be a risk, but I am hoping this helps. 

Have a good day and stay cool.

Dear Friends and Neighbors:
 
It was either several Senior moments or due to the heat, or just plain old lack of knowledge on my part I did not have all of the current and accurate information on the Knox Box that was in Blog 29. One of our Residents, Barney Ford, was able to provide more accurate information, and I am grateful for his support
 
Mr. David Davis (ddavis@wakeforestnc.gov) (919 761 3810) is the contact person for the Knox Box. He has sent excellent instructions, and the price is much more than I had originally published, approximately $218.00 which includes optional mounting plate and shipping. Please accept my deepest regrets for not being fully prepared with all information.
 
The directions are as follows: ....
