AWESOME!  PERFECT!  BEST FAMILY DAY EVER…  and great weather from the first hands-free pie eaten and karaoke song sung, to Saturday evening’s DJ party that had everyone on their feet and a photo booth to show what you really think when nobody’s looking (it’s posted on Facebook, so now we do know!). Saturday’s events had rides and games for everyone young in spirit, face painting, spin art, cotton candy, sno-cones and chances to cool off on the water slide, the pool joust, the tug-of-war and even more. 

But, it all happens because of *YOU*. Thank you to everyone who set aside an hour (or several) to make Family Day fun for all.

President’s Message – September 11, 2013

A special appeal to Residents

Dear neighbors, one of our youngest residents, little Maddie Pascual, was diagnosed with lymphoblastic lymphoma cancer earlier this year. Nine-year-old Maddie hopes to return to fourth grade early next year after intensive treatments have concluded, but expects to continue to fight for recovery over the following two years.  However, her family needs our assistance to help pay for her care.  From now through the end of October, we will donate 20% of all sales from the RCA Shop to benefit Maddie, whether purchased through our website or by the order form in this week’s Bulletin.  We will also collect any additional donation amounts that you can offer.  Little Maddie loves her family, her friends and life! She is very creative and spends lots of time doing arts and crafts, drawing, and writing plays and hopes one day to use her creative energy to open an amusement park with her cousin. We’re looking forward to visiting her fantastic playland.

Volunteers needed!
