Entrance Island Update
The board is looking at options for updating our entrance island. We are looking at updating, structure, watering and lighting systems as well as
the plantings. We are doing this partly to give our neighborhood a facelift of sorts, but also we have a couple of repair items to work out and will wait to do those until we have decided on the new plan. We know the island looks like it needs help, and we are making plans that we hope the work starts in the fall, but the real finish will be next spring.
Annual Meeting – April 10, 2016

Saint Charles Night Out – Neighborhood/ City Event
We will once again this year participate in this event with the city.

We will gather and have an ice cream social, with fun and good neighborhood spirit!! Please mark your calendars for Monday, September 11th from 5:30-8:30 to stop by…..this will be held in the Canyon Oak Ct in the southeast corner of the neighborhood.
Halloween Parade and Chili Cook Off
We had such fun last year we are doing it again!! This year we will have this event on Sunday, October 29th from 3-6PM. We will start with the parade- kids dress up in this year’s finery and parade through the neighborhood to show all! The parade will start at 3:30. Then we will still have fun & games going on and getting ready for the chili cook off! We will have “celebrity” judges and award prizes for the top three chilis. While judging takes place we will also line up and eat some fine chili! The board will supply grated cheese, onion, oyster crackers for the event. Please plan to BYOB for your drinks of the evening.
Girls Game Night (GGN)
We have a group of gals that get together once a month during most of the school year calendar. We gather at a different neighborhood home each month to play a game, enjoy good conversation, and of course the food we all bring! The host home provides table/ chairs for the game, and one clean bathroom! The attendees then bring appetizers/ desserts to share and drink of their choice- wala…instant party! If you wish to be on the email reminder please contact Kirsten at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also post on the HOHA Facebook page the announcements about this event.

Can you help, even some of the time? As we hold events we need help with organizing, setting up, running, take down, etc with each event. We will ask at each event for help, but we also would like to start a Voluteer List. If you are willing to volunteer during an event, please email the board to let us know. As events roll around all on this list will get an email, if you can volunteer please respond to that email. Just being on the list means you will help when your schedule does allow! One item brought up at the annual meeting was coming up with “________” for welcoming new neighbors. This is a great opportunity to volunteer! Please contact the board if you have an idea of what that welcoming thing should be, and then also if you are willing to be apart of the welcoming committee. We probably just need 2-3 people for this to make sure we welcome people as they move in!
