Things To Do



Our community website was developed to serve as an informative resource for both our neighborhood and our local community. Please feel free to contact us with your comments and suggestions.

General Information
Posted on Aug 28th, 2014
1.  The last pancake breakfast of the season was Saturday (8/30).  
2.  Gary, who was our original volunteer pickleball instructor - who continues to assist Saturday mornings with lessons - has offered to continue with pickleball instruction/play Saturday mornings for the next month or so.  Thank you Gary!
3.  How long will the pool remain open?  I don't know.  It will depend on use and weather.  I am hoping it will remain open through the end of September.  Hot tubs the same.  I will keep one hot tub open all year too...if use justifies it.
4.  Zumba, toning and yoga will continue as long as class participation is strong.  I hope we can carry those activities all year long like last year!
5.  Thursday night dinners will continue as long as at least 30 people sign up as we move into fall and winter.  Currently 60 people to serve is our cap and 60 continue to sign up!  Thank you Julie!
If you have any questions, call us (928.369.4008) and/or check out the information on the association website!
Thank you all very much, this season was great, many happy faces have been around...that is great to see.
Lastly, please be sure to thank all of the crew around here, they work very hard for you.  I am very proud of all they do, appreciate their efforts, positive attitudes and willingness to help make this place so special!

FireWise and Related
Posted on Apr 22nd, 2014
The forest service has implemented "Stage One" Fire Restriction this morning for the forest.  Basically what that means is no open fires in the forest except for developed campgrounds in their firepits. Propane tanks can be used but must be turned off when not in use.  
At the recreation center we have small packets for each owner with more information regarding FireWise management of your property as well as a hard copy of the evacuation plan.  
If you want to know the latest regarding fire restrictions, exisitng fires (if applicable) or any other safety concerns Navajo County has an automated system you can call.   Verizon, Frontier & Cell Customers may call #311 or check online at
Finally there is now a reverse 911 register through Navajo County.  Go online and find the reverse 911 line on the left side of the page and click. Below is a portion of the information and process to register. 
Phone: Please register the primary and alternate phone numbers you want us to use to contact you. These must be your phone numbers, not someone else’s. If a call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message. If the line is busy or there is no answer, the system will redial the number once in an attempt to deliver the message. The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.  
Here is the web address to register your phone number(s) for
the reverse 911.

Electronic Voting Reminder
Posted on Nov 27th, 2012
We have moved to electronic voting for our annual meeting board of directors where the link to the ballot will be on the association website.  By doing this it will save several thousands of dollars.
If you do not want to electronically vote please let me know in writing that you want your ballot mailed.
Last year was our first attempt at this in a voluntary way and was very successful and time saving.
