Administration: We would like to thank all those who helped prepare the first half assessment billing. The first half of the 2015 dues in the amount of $425 is due January 1, 2015 and delinquent January 15, 2015. The Board of Directors voting deadline is Monday, December 15. Home sales are continuing to increase with seven selling in the month of November and 110 for the year with one month left; 96 home sales were budgeted for the year.

Food and Beverage: We had a terrific Thanksgiving dinner with over 240 tickets sold, nearly doubling last year sales. Many excellent comments were made about the food and service.

The health inspector surprisingly came for a random inspection of the restaurant last Tuesday resulting in an “A” rating on the operations and compliance.

The Horizon Room had a huge weekend with several large catering events that reported all had good service and wonderful food. Both the karaoke and DJ nights were very well attended. We are considering hosting these activities weekly. We will be starting Trivia Night in January in the Horizon Room on Wednesday nights. This will be for a trial period to see what kind of interest and attendance there will be at this activity.

Clubhouse and Facilities: The entranceway to the Horizon Room balcony now has a decorative exterior water fountain installed adding more panache to the facility. The fountain was donated by the Garden Club.

Over the weekend, someone took a complete showerhead and wand out of the wall in the third Fitness Room shower area. We are currently reviewing video from surveillance cameras for leads.

A new projector was ordered and now has been received to replace the existing one in the Ballroom.

Several accent walls have been painted around the Clubhouse to add to the new décor and for more color.
