The Annual meeting is next Monday evening, 7:00 PM at All Saints Center. In addition to the important subjects being discussed and voted upon, we will also be distributing Parking Permits and the new beach keys before and after the meeting. So please plan to attend. If you absolutely cannot be there, please remember to return your ballot to our office this week. You can arrange to pick up permits and keys at our office after the meeting if you cannot be in attendance.
There were two break-ins reported on the island this past weekend. I do not have ANY specific details, addresses, etc., other than it is believed that the perpetrators were teenagers and that both incidents happened during the daytime. As always, it is important to take every precaution to prevent theft and burglary. Keep doors locked and garage doors closed, even during the daylight hours!
Attend the upcoming annual meeting!
The information packet that was mailed to all residents can also be viewed HERE.
