President’s Message – January 2013

14 Jan

Dear Neighbors

As many of us look into the New Year we are evaluating what is important to our families and us. Our com- munity is important in many ways; we can rely on each other and raise our family in a peaceful environ- ment.

Recently I heard of acts of kindness to fellow neighbors by providing a Thanksgiving meal with the help of the local Fire Dept. Not only was the turkey donated but also it was prepared into a full meal for those that would have gone without. There were three families in our neighborhood that were taken care of by such acts of kindness. There are quite a few neighbors that look after their elderly neighbors too.

At the membership drive on January 19, there will be a sign up sheet for next year’s events and suggestions for more ways our community can interact. Let us know what you would like to participate with.

There will be a “LOST AND FOUND” box by the grill area in the pavilion, I will be placing many cooking uten- sils I take home and wash after our events. Please do not put shoes, towels or dirty items in the box, these can be placed on the ground.

This year I have had a wonderful experience with the 2012 IOP Board Members in which I would like to thank them for their time and efforts in our association.

Have a prosperous New Year in the IOP.
