A Note from the President

On behalf of the board, I would like to thank all of the voters who elected us. We are looking forward to an exciting year and realize it will be full of many challenges. The turnout at the community meeting held on June 26 was amazing.

You made my job of addressing the community as President so easy. I saw so many smiling faces and felt as if I was just having a chat with friends. I want to keep the lines of communication open and care very much about what the community has to say.

As mentioned at the meeting, there will be a suggestion box placed outside Betty’s office complete with forms so you may address your concerns, comments and hopefully lots of compliments.

All unsigned forms will be discarded without being read. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your summer. Why not come out to the pool? Even if you don’t swim, it’s a great place to socialize and perhaps make some new friends. See you out and about. Pat Schneider.

Welcome to Heritage Pines, home to active adults 55 and over who want to enjoy the the fun lifestyle offered to its residents. We are proud of our 298 home community which offers a mix of ninety 2-, 3-, or 4-unit one-story villas and 208 single family residences, varying in size from around 1400 square feet to 2400 square feet. Heritage Pines, with its tree-lined streets, community ponds, and walkways, is just the right size—big enough to provide a host of activities for your pleasure while maintaining a small-town atmosphere where you can get to know all of your neighbors. Making new friends is a top priority here at Heritage Pines.

The fun begins at our centrally located clubhouse where a variety of community events are provided year-around for your pleasure. The clubhouse is home to the multi-purpose room, card room, craft room, library, exercise room, kitchen, and shower facilities. The beautiful clubhouse veranda overlooks the community pond and provides easy access to the heated pool, spa, Recreational Complex (tennis court, bocce courts, shuffleboard court, horseshoe court), and walking paths.

At Heritage Pines, you will find a wide range of activities provided for your enjoyment and learning pleasure.
Dining: Tired of cooking or eating alone? Catered and pot luck dinners are planned throughout the year, often with ballroom dancing or musical entertainment. Time honored favorites are the monthly ladies’ luncheon and bi-monthly men’s breakfasts, ice cream socials, and poolside pizza parties, or join your friends in the Gourmet Dining Group, progressive dinners, or dining out at one of the many local restaurants.

  • Holidays: Special events are open to all residents to celebrate holidays with your friends and neighbors at the Clubhouse.

  • Clubs: A variety of social clubs invite your interests: Conversational French or Spanish; book club, needle group, open art studio, model yacht sailboat races.

  • Dancing/Exercise: Those of you who like dancing or exercise groups will enjoy square dancing, round dancing, line dancing, aquacise, stretch and flex, or yoga.

  • Happy Hour: A weekly feature is Friday night Happy Hour, followed by Game Time where the choice of games varies or come share your favorite.

  • Travel: Expand your horizons by joining a group of friends in exploring our beautiful country or exotic places throughout the world. Ready for a cruise anyone?

  • More Fun: Our residents enjoy participating in local bowling leagues, senior competitions, golf
    outings and tournaments, art shows, musical theater, and tennis tournaments.

Volunteers are the heart of our community. We welcome one and all to participate. Come share your skills and expertise so we can all learn from your experience. Our social events, hosted by our many volunteers, are constantly improving as these creative people share their new ideas and talents. Our Hospitality Committee, Block Captains, and Homeowner Association committee and Board members are also a big asset to our community. Volunteering is a great way to meet your neighbors and make new friends.
