May 2005



Saturday, May 21, is the date for the spring sale. Any remaining items you wish to donate will be picked up at your curb between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.



Summer is almost here! Your help is needed to get ready. Clean-up Day is Sunday, May 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. Parents that help clean up may bring their children for a pre-opening swim. There is much work to be done to get the pool area ready for opening day on May 27. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays thru Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It is a huge job to get everything cleaned and organized, so please come and help Bryant & Kelly Prude (who do such a great job of managing the pool and parties) and the other Pool Committee members. Pool parties still need to be booked through Kelly Prude. Please refer to the directory for all pool rules.


REMINDER: You will need your common area key to get into the pool along with your pass.



Lessons will begin on June 1 on Wednesday nights. The cost is $5.00 per lesson and lessons will be held for two months. Kids lessons will begin at 6:30 p.m. and adults at 7:30 p.m. Call Jamie Cooke at 890-1842 to enroll.



All Trash Containers (even small ones) must be kept out of sight from neighboring properties unless it is a collection day. Also make sure your trash or recyclables don’t blow out of their containers into the street or on your neighbor.



The newly elected officers are Craig Sifferman - President; Gaye Lee Vice-President; Donna Howerton Sec./Treas.; Bryant Prude and Mike Summers. Many thanks to this new Board as well as outgoing member Tom Cardin and Don Volentine -  past President.



Keep watching the common area. A 1ot of work is being done and more is scheduled. The swale between the basketball court and the apartment buildings has been completed. New timbers have been placed to help protect the areas from water damage. A fence is planned in this area as well as partially down Quail Creek Ave. to help define the property lines. The sand volleyball court has been cleared of weeds and grass. The tennis and basketball courts will be resurfaced and windscreens in­stalled. Eventually, each venue will have a self-closing, locking gate. Each property owner will receive two keys for access. You will still need your pass with you.


Thanks very much to our fabulous Grounds Committee, Jim Holtman, Howard Bannerman, Jerry Webster and Mason Nichols for volunteering all their time and hard work to make these improvements. The Feasibility Committee also spent many hours meeting and research­ing ideas and getting bids for ideas that will be implemented in the near future. Thanks to all of them.



Don’t forget to visit our new web-site www.qcpoa.com. It is designed to keep you informed about our Neighborhood.

Please be alert to any suspicious activity and call 911 to make a police report and then please notify a member of the Neighborhood Watch Committee.



The volunteers are doing a great job of getting ready for the new season. Thanks to JoAnna Jones and the committee as well as the homeowners who take care of the common flowerbeds. It really distinguishes our neighborhood. Volunteers are always welcome.



When your owner takes you for a walk in Quail Creek, please remind them to be considerate of your neighbors and carry a scooper and bag for the poop that you will leave along the way. You may not realize that your owners have been asked repeatedly to pick up after you and not allow you to pee and poop in the neighbor’s yards, flowerbeds or common areas. This is a subject that should not have to be repeated but is the #1 complaint from neighbors. They like dogs, but not the mess you leave behind.
