Recently, while I was in the pool, I was
thinking that while growing up in the North, Labor Day always signaled the
end of the summer, but not here. We are very fortunate here to have an
?extended summer? and our pool will remain open through October 12.
I want to thank Barbara Jerchower for volunteering to get us started with a
Community Watch. Barbara was in touch with the Cary police and a program
will be held on October 16 at 3:00 pm giving information on what we need to
do to make a Community Watch work in our neighborhood. I hope we will have
many residents willing to participate in this program. Recently we’ve had
problems with people breaking into the pool area after hours. If you should
see anyone in this area after dark please contact the Cary police who will
come over and check it out for us.
The new recreational area seems to be in full swing. There will be a second bocce game added on Tuesday mornings. Come on out and join the fun! Also in the exercise room our Nu Step recumbent bike has arrived complete with cardio. Why not come over and take it for a spin? Hope to see you all out and about.

When disasters strike, it is sometimes the smallest members of our family – our pets- that are the most affected. During an evacuation, most public shelters for people will not accept pets. You may be forced to leave pets behind (like what happened during Hurricane Katrina) if you have not made other plans. Frightened animals can slip out open doors or into parts of your home damaged by the storm and become lost or injured.
To prepare for emergencies, it is important to have an Emergency Evacuation Plan in place that includes your pets. Here’s what you need to consider:
