Happy Holidays!

Because December is always such a busy time, the CHOA Winter Party will be Saturday evening, January 25th, at the Charbonneau Country Club.

This will be a great time to get together to meet new neighbors and catch up with everyone.  If you have new neighbors, please invite them to join us since not everyone is on-line or have e-mail.

Please bring an Appetizer to share.  Coffee and water will be provided.

Please bring your own adult beverage if you like.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Bark Dust coming soon!


Now that the trees have released most of their leaves, our Garron crews can move on to other maintenance issues.  They have completed spraying for moss around the beds on the back of our yards (golf course side) and will be cleaning up the beds this week.  We plan on placing hemlock bark on the golf course sides of our homes the second week of December, (weather permitting) as shown on the Map below:

 Rexius will have several trucks on site and will probably start at the north end of Boones Bend.

NOTE to those who are on the “NO PRUNE” list and to those who have perennials planted on the golf course side –you should do the necessary pruning to make those beds accessible or we may not be able to blow the bark into those areas.

If you have any questions, you can call Steve Chinn at 503-682-0234.
