Since I was in the hospital during the last civic meettng, I want to ﬁrst thank my vice-president, Jim Meloy, for chairing the January civic meeting on such short notice. I was pleased to hear that the residents of Mainlands 6 attended in such great numbers.
We are still learning the ins and outs of running this community. Much has to be learned on our own with help of volunteers. We appreciate your patience until we have the community problems addressed. As for the problem with Fobs, hopefully, by the time you read this Jim will have gotten the many fob issues taken care of.
We will be moving on with the repair of the clubhouse roof. Many thanks to the roof committee, on the maintenance team, and especially, to Rick Clarke, who contacted the 3 contractors, who have given bids, and is working diligently on preparing the bids for presentation. Progress will always be presented at our civic meetings
Social events have begun in full force. The ﬁrst Happy Hour of the year was a huge success. As of this writing a movie, horse races, game/card day and crafts are planned. Check your calendar for the February events. Volunteers are always welcome at any event. If you have a special skill you want to share contact Lynda Pasternak.
Volunteers are going house to house getting census forms ﬁlled out. This is very important in order to maintain our 55 and over status. IF you missed them and have not ﬁlled out your form, please come to the oﬃce and ﬁll out a form.
Irrigation problems have not been forgotten. We did ﬁnd out that one pump is broken and the many issues with Jim Daley have been turned over to the Irrigation Pres and VP (Betty Henderson and Charlie Matteson). They should be the ones contacted regarding your sprinkler problems.
I look forward to a productive year and meeting many more of you. I am in this position to help this community. Please feel free to stop by the oﬃce. I am working on extending oﬃce hours to meet the needs of everyone.
