March Winds Doth Blow...
Posted on Mar 14th, 2017 Comments (0)
…and we shall have snow!! The predicted snowstorm makes some of us snow-happy following such a grey, warm winter here in Four Seasons at Elm Tree. The daffodils and forsythia are starting to yellow but will have to refrain from blooming too early now.
     Our over-55 community continues to stay active with an AARP defensive driving seminar scheduled to help us be safe on the roads while reducing our auto insurance a bit. This bookends with the Wellness program which has new presenters each time covering topics such as sleeping, nutrition, and planning for aging issues. The monthly luncheons out haven’t been interrupted all winter thus far, and many are planning to attend the county library’s annual fundraising luncheon with guest speaker and signed book.
      Our newsletter alerted us to moving the clocks ahead to have light later in the evening, another sure sign of spring’s coming. A helpful article explained some smoke alarm recalls, plus a very comprehensive listing of estate planning was compiled for us to use and give to our families. Many of us volunteer this way, sharing our talents and interests.
     The Ides of March may show us some “brutal” weather, but we remain busy and glad to have neighbors who are helpful and near when we need each other.

      Yes, those thinking "golf" are acting now to solicit anyone interested in playing with the group this season! The Donegal course is close by and new golfers are very welcome...so we know that spring at Four Seasons at Elm Tree is weeks away! Walkers on the park's path just above us have been more frequent, whether with their dogs along or not. A new dog park has opened, and we even have a sidewalk all the way to the mini-mall down the street so we can pick up some extra groceries, use a parcel service, check for new glasses,  and have a light lunch, among other things!
      Our HOA volunteer board of three has done yeoman service over the winter in keeping us updated and better informed. Email contacts and, especially, our comprehensive monthly newsletter and easy-to-read calendar are a constant resource of activities and relevant issues.  As an over-55 community, volunteer opportunities
