  6. LABOR DAY SOCIAL; SATURDAY; September 4, 2021; Setup at 4:00 PM. Social starts at 5:00 PM.  The Labor Day social is on!  We’ll have boxed meals from Red Hot & Blue for you this year – think of this as our substitute for the Fourth of July social we normally have.  Further information will be coming out but some of the points I’m aware include:
    1. – we’ll have the 5-gallon containers with drinks.  Please consider bringing a reusable cup with you. 
    2. – we’ll have boxes of different combinations, please only take a filled closed box.
    3. – we plan to have cake.  That cake will be served by certain individuals on plates for you to pick up. 
    4. – The boxes come with their own utensils.  Please use the same utensils for your cake. 
    5. – we are not renting additional furniture for this event.  If we get a large turnout you may want to consider bringing your own chairs or just sitting on the concrete. 
    6. Lastly, we could still some additional help to work the event.  A sign-up is available for you to volunteer  It is also linked from the pool sign-in framework or you can just contact the POCs.  The Pool and Social Committees are jointly leading this effort, please contact or with any questions.  The rain date for this event will be Sunday, September 5th if necessary.
  7. AUGUST 2021 NEWSLETTER.  Will be available in the near future.  As with the previous issues over the past year, this edition will be digital-only available from the website.  If you need a hard-copy please contact
  8. TRASH AND RECYCLING.  We included the current synopsized trash and recycling rules in the August newsletter.  With the turnover to new tenants and owners, if everyone could review the rules we would greatly appreciate it.  We are starting to have items placed out that require advance notice to Patriot.  Some of these items carry a charge for disposal.  If you have items to dispose of please be considerate to your neighbors and to the community and take the responsibility to get rid of such items correctly.

Thank you for reading this, enjoy your evening.
