Bark Dust used for Moss and Weed Control

Please note that CHOA landscaping will soon implement a moss and weed control program.  We will begin in January (weather permitting) by spraying the moss that is growing in the planting areas along our street front properties. Then in mid to late January, once the spray has had time to work, we will spread bark dust on the planting areas between the street and your courtyards. We will not be going along the paths that run beside your yards.  We hope to be able to repeat this program next year for the planting areas on the golf course side.

If you don’t wish to have bark spread in your yard, please let us know.

Save the Date: CHOA Holiday Party is Monday Jan 21st at the Country Club!

Happy Holidays!

Because December is always such a busy time, the CHOA Holiday Party will be Monday evening, January 21st, 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 then to join us since not everyone is on-line or have e-mail.

We will update you on the new Kitchen in Rec Hall C plus other topics of interests to our neighborhood.

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!
