Proper disposal of household items

We’ve recently had two incidents of household items that were improperly disposed of. In one case, a large number of items that someone thought might still be of use to someone else were arranged on the wall of the potable water fill station near the dumpster. While the intentions might have been good, it certainly wasn’t a site that was inviting to visitors, guests, or fellow members of the Park. Please remember that the ONLY options for items in this area is 1) the bins for approved recycled items and 2) the dumpster. There are further options at the Sutherlin Sanitary Service on South Calapooia, but you’ve got to take a short drive to avail yourself of them. The recycle and dumpster area is not a flea market, a swap meet, or a “free for the taking area”. If you think an item still might have value, check with your neighbors or others in the park. Please, help keep our front entrance area clean, neat, and a good impression to others.

The other incident was the dumping of various household items onto the burn pile behind the storage area. The ONLY items that go onto the burn pile are plant, tree, or brush material, clippings, limbs, etc. Absolutely no chemicals, manufactured items, treated wood. If you’re not sure, ask the office or Randy for clearance before dumping anything here other than plant material.

Addendum:  Donna Hostetter reminded me that useable household items can be placed on the Jacks and Jills Table in the Clubhouse.  The money from sales goes back to Jacks and Jills for future events. A good cause for sure.

Landscape Work Party this Friday

All Points Bulletin…. Come One come All… The weather looks like it’s going to cooperate with us this Friday morning when the Landscape Committee is planning a work party at 9am sharp. The objective is the front entrance area where the big Timber Valley sign is.

If you have a couple hours to help out… to lend a hand… we could use all the hands can get to help clean up the front entrance landscape area, plant some new plants, re-route the little creek, trim, rake, dig, and prepare the ground for even more goodies to be planted in the next few weeks. Our effort is to make our entrance an inviting and colorful gateway to our Park.

So, if you have the time and you have the ability, please help us out Friday between 9am and about 11am. We meet at the clubhouse at 9am. Thanks so much for your effort.

Spring Seminar – ‘Sutherlin School District Bond Levy,’ 4/13, Fri., 3 p.m.

On Friday, April 13, at 3 p.m., guest speaker Sutherlin School Board member JR Guthrie will talk about the impact of the local school bond measure will have on the community (that’s us). The issue is on the May Ballot.

According to School District material: “A bond measure is needed to address the district’s facilities needs as the total amount of work needed far exceed the district’s ability to pay from the general fund.” If passed, the measure will increase property taxes. Read over the following material provided by the School District and come with questions.

Also bring potluck snacks to share with your neighbors.
