THE PRESIDENT REPORTS
As we approach the holiday season and focus on holiday parties, time with family and friends, remembering our accomplishments, challenges and memories of the past year, we also start planning and anxiously await what 2018 will bring us. Keep personal safety and home security in mind as you participate in holiday festivities, especially when you are out of town. I want to thank all the volunteers and Board members who have helped with the maintenance and continual improvement of our growing community this
year. With the 2018 Board election on December 12 I ask all residents who are not on the Board next year to consider helping out on one of the many Committees or with one of the projects during the year. Committee position descriptions, policies and procedures are posted on the members side of the RPOA web site if you want additional information. Pool management is one area where we need assistance next pool season. Neighborhoods reflect the residents who live there. How our neighborhood looks and feels depends on you the residents. Potential homeowners drive through a neighborhood when they are considering where they want to live. What is the general appearance of the homes, are the yards well maintained, are fences in disrepair - we
need to remember that what we do as individuals affects others. Be considerate of your neighbors. The Association strives to keep a neighborhood you can be proud of and want to live in. Please do not dump grass clippings, other landscaping debris or trash in vacant lots or common areas. You have made a major investment in your home, or even if you are a renter in the Rapids, let us all work to maintain the value we have here. The Officers and Board appreciate and value your input, concerns, and opinions.
 
Please contact any of us and share your ideas. Get involved.

New residents - if you have not received a Welcome Package, please contact your
Street Representative are listed at the end of the Newsletter.
