PH September Newsletter
"When summer opens, I see how fast it matures,
and fear it will be short; but after the heats of
July and August, I am reconciled, like one who has had his swing, to the cool of autumn."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-
A Note from your Friendly Neighborhood Property Manager
Now that the summer rush is winding down, our newsletters are back. To our new folks: I try my best to put out a little newsletter each month to break
up the monotony of work emails, advertisements, etc and provide something more fun than anything. They usually include upcoming resident and/or downtown events, helpful tips, building reminders, etc. Don't forget to scroll all the way down to take some polls... I would love your feedback for ideas for events and/or things you'd like to see! Tx, LA
