IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
"The Year Ahead"
A Presentation on Saturday, February 24th
at 1:00 PM in the Center

On Saturday, February 24th at 1 :00 PM in the Center, I will be making a presentation on "The Year Ahead" in Falls Run. This is

I will be sharing with you:
·        A bit of my background and how I got here today,
·        My approach to working with the community,
·        What my priorities and expectations are for the coming year,
·        Some significant changes that are on our doorstep and the procurements that will take place in the coming year, and,
·        How we can work together to make the community a better place by improving communications and transparency.

Refreshments will be served and I will be raffling off at least a dozen bottles of wine and whatever else pops in my mind as door prizes.

This is a talk from me to the community as a resident who happens the be the President of the Association. I am not representing the Board of Directors in any way. I do not intend this to be a forum of any kind. I do not intend to enter into any discussions or take any questions during my talk.

I look forward to seeing you there. Please sign up with the Concierge in the Center and have a great week.
