This and That!

This and That!

A little bit of this and that this week:

Augustine Floor PlanHome building has finally returned to Stillwaters Estates. The economy is improving and houses are selling – selling so fast that we now only have one home on our resale list! With that shortage of homes, comes the buyers who are interested in building. Nice to hear the sound of building again in our neighborhood!

Emergency Preparedness in Stillwaters is moving forward as we implement the program called Map Your Neighborhood. For the purposes of having smaller group meetings the neighborhood has been divided into ten groups. Each group will have separate meeting to learn about the program. In September we will hold the first two group meetings to learn about the program. Stay tuned for your invitation to one of these meetings or a meeting in the near future. This program is an easy and organized way to prepare for emergencies before they happen.

It’s Labor Day on Monday and we are forecast for a “chance of rain” weekend! Temperatures are going to be in the low 70’s for the next week, with lows at night dropping to the 50’s. I am hoping that fall isn’t here yet and we can have a few more weeks of sunshine please.
