PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE – FEBRUARY 2016
COYOTES have been observed in the community. On one occasion, four were seen together on Stonewoods Lane. The sightings are generally in the evening. They are dangerous animals. Be very careful of your pets. Never let your pet outside unattended.
SNOW AND ICE presents a safety issue. No matter how hard we try to remove or melt it, there may be some ice or snow in our community. Take extra care when walking and driving on the driveways and streets even if they do not look slippery. Remember during these colder months we do not get out as much. You might want to check on your neighbors to make sure they are OK.
RIVERBEND HANDBOOK: I ask that you review your Resident Handbook. The Board would be pleased to review any recommendations from residents regarding our rules. Recommendations for additions, changes or deletions of rules should be in writing and given or emailed to any board member.
GROUNDHOG DAY is on February 2nd. I suspect we all look forward to an early spring.

I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. “When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown.
