Fall Festival: Rainy Day Hayride & Picnic

We managed to get our hayride in, although the picnic turned a bit soggy. No matter, the kids had fun and went home with candy, which had them smiling. It was great to see new residents participating, as well.

CPCA Directory: Info Update Underway

Friends & Neighbors,

I am working on a new CPCA directory. I know that several of you had recommended putting the directory online because the constant turnover here makes the information outdated so quickly. However, in researching this I have come across a number of warnings regarding security. It seems any information published online, even behind a password, is vulnerable. The directory has always been an internal book, a primary tool of our informal crime prevention, and a great way to keep in touch with neighbors, confirm social engagements and set up play dates for kids. I have one on my desk, carry one in my car, and have used both to let neighbors know about loose dogs, trees across the road, broken sprinkler heads, and misdirected UPS and Fed-Ex packages.

Over the next week or so I am will be sending emails in waves to everyone to confirm the information on record (I’m now up to the H’s). Many of you have already replied with confirmation and/or updates. For those who haven’t replied, I’ve begun texting. If you haven’t received either by this time next week, please feel free to text me at 903.484.4797. If you are new and haven’t filled out the form, it is available through this link: New Residents’ Info Sheet.

We offer advertising in the directory and residents are given priority. If you are interested, please text me. I have print production expertise working in Adobe InDesign and will be happy to help you create your ad.

October 5th: Ice Cream Social

Always nice to have an occasion to meet new neighbors, visit with old friends, and watch the children play.
