Best Wishes of the Season

Happy Holidays

The pool area renovation is well underway and has been proceeding on schedule. After removing the deck we found that much of the electrical and plumbing was badly in need of replacement. That extra work is being done this week. Some of the coping stones around the pool will need to be reset and re-grouted. The surface of the coping stones has also deteriorated so they will be resurfaced with an application of epoxy paint. The resurfacing will be done in the next couple of weeks just before the pavers are installed. We are still aiming for completion by the end of December.

I'd like to thank the Lakes staff for the wonderful job they do operating our recreation facility. Our Lakes Clubhouse is run by a hard-working, friendly, and conscientious staff. Thank you, Clubhouse Manager, Craig Whatcott, and front-desk attendants Matt, Joey, Kobi, Anthony, Margo, Alexis, Sean, Jack, Spencer, and Chris. Also thank you to our health and fitness instructors, Margo, Amber, Lisa, Tatiana, Julia, and Tommy. We are lucky to have such a great team working for us.

Thank you to our friendly and efficient Office Manager Karen Ciampo, CC&R Inspector Daniel Renteria, and Bookkeeper Tabie Hernandez in the LCA office for their hard work and dedication to The Lakes. I also want to thank our long-time employee Danny for doing such a great job maintaining our waterways and common areas.

It takes a strong team of these dedicated and caring employees and reliable vendors such as Redwood Landscaping, M & M Janitorial, Fitness Fix, Paradise Pools, George's Repair Service, Look Electric, Lakes Log publisher Don Kirkland, Dr. Rick Amalfi at Aquatics Consulting Inc, and CPA Jim Oberlin to support and to service The Lakes community.

I am proud to be a part of such a great Lakes team.

I want to reassure Lakes homeowners that throughout this year, as with every year, I have worked hard to maintain a vision of home ownership and community living to support a rising level of home values that we have come to expect and appreciate. I hope that you are happy with the results and that if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, you will not hesitate to call me.

To all residents of The Lakes, I wish you a happy holiday season.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 480-838-1023.
