Annual Meeting and January Newsletter

January 2016

Annual Meeting
Saturday, February 13, 2016
10:00 a.m.
7510 E. Rio Verde Drive

Please join us! Learn about your neighborhood.

We will review what happened in 2015, share our plans for 2016, and invite you to share your thoughts and concerns with our board.  Board members will be elected for terms ending in 2018.

What does it take to be a board member?  Probably, it takes a lot less than you would think!  Just be a VDR resident.  It is not necessary to be a homeowner. We meet for one to two hours once a month.  It does involve delivering newsletters – but this gives you exercise, a chance to meet your neighbors, and neighborhood awareness.  So, if you are interested, please give it a try!

Call Jill Kiefer, Nominations Committee Chair, at 971-3780 to place your name on the ballot.  (Leave your information on her message machine.)  Please note that nominations can be made from the floor at the appropriate time during the election process.
