As the first light breaks across the horizon and casts a red glow on the mountains, I can’t help but think how we are all blessed in this paradise we call Shadow Hills. Another day begins and, just when you think it can’t get any better, a neighbor, a person you don’t even know, walks by and says “good morning,” and you smile knowing we are all bound together and share in the experience of this beautiful place. This feeling warms your heart knowing we are all looking out for each other, the outcome of living in Shadow Hills.
It is a privilege to be your new HOA President. As the new Board term begins, I would like to take a moment to recognize and thank all the people who have dedicated so much time and energy to help make our community the amazing place that it is.
We have a legion of committed homeowners who volunteer their time to participate on the many committees that keep our community operating smoothly. Without all these dedicated individuals, our community would not operate so well. As you see them, step up and say “thank you,” they can never hear it enough because their sacrifice of time enhances every day of our lives.
I would also like to thank all the candidates who ran in this last election. It takes courage and commitment to step up and go through the election process. I would like to commend and acknowledge Barbara Stocky, who stepped into the vacated Board position last year and did an exceptional job during her time on the Board. I want also to thank Joan Dzuro for volunteering to write half of these articles in the View so that I have more time to learn the duties of this position. So, next month we will have a “Vice President’s Report.”
As we move forward at Shadow Hills, I know we will continue to work together and keep the lines of communication open. Every homeowner has a vested interest in the success of our community, so I encourage you to be involved. One of the ways to do this is by attending the monthly “Meet a Board Member” meetings. These meetings are designed to give homeowners a chance to voice their opinions and concerns to Board members. We need to hear from you and work together for the greater good. Open communication is key in helping our Board be successful at meeting the needs of our community.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Board alongside the other Board members.
So, when the sun sets on this day, I will reflect on this beautiful sunrise, a good morning greeting, all the kind people who have gathered in this community, and say to myself, “It doesn’t get any better than this.”
