High winds!

windyIf you were out this past week I hope you had rocks in your pockets! 

You might have found a stray patio cushion, or flag, or lawn chair on your property, front and back.  Can you check? 

A few residents are missing stuff that wasn’t lashed down.  If you found anything extra please let us know and we’ll try to find its owner. 
Contact Mona if you lost or found something.  (Kitties included.)

Hope you got your tickets for the VCA Holiday Dinner Dance
