Times Change & So Have our BBQ/Potlucks

The Board/POA facilitated and sponsored this event twice yearly between 2010 & 2019: One on Memorial Day weekend and the other on Labor Day weekend. Each included a POA-funded BBQ, combined with a traditional potluck & picnic. The Board/POA furnished 2 or 3 meat choices, barbecued-to-order, beverages, ice, condiments, glasses/plates & other utensils. Attendees needed only to bring a side-dish/desert to share.  A few Ranch-area folks usually volunteered to organize entertainment/games for both the kids and the adults. Unfortunately, lack of attendance during the latter years forced us to discontinue POA-sponsorship, relegating facilitation of these kinds of events to property owners at-large (see FAQ #14).

We would gladly consider POA-sponsorship again, especially if we could team with our Ranch-area friends. 

It was admittedly a mistake for us not to promote much more involvement by Ranch-area folks than we did.  We thought we were sparing them the extra work, but that may have been misinterpreted as purposely leaving them out.  We apologize.  There's nothing we'd like more than to work together to make this a fun opportunity (the only opportunity for many), to meet our fellow property owners, unifying our community into one harmonious family of friends/neighbors, which is hopefully what we all want.  Food for thought (pardon the pun). If you want, and would attend such an event, please so indicate with a post on the Message Board (CLICK HERE), or send us a private email (CLICK HERE).
