A BIG THANK YOU TO CATHY BROWN FOR PUBLISHING THE NOVEMBER ACTIVITIES FOR VANTAGE POINTE!

There have been some changes made to the VP Ladies' Bible Study.  Beginning next week,
(Nov. 26) the meeting day will be on Wednesday rather than Tuesday.  We will keep the 10:00
am meeting time.  On November 26th only, we will meet in the home of Debbie Turner, 4206
Vantage Circle, so that the clubhouse is free for Thanksgiving preparations.  There will be
no meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 24 & Dec. 31.
 
Thank you!
 
Debbie Turner

OUR MOTLEY CREW ...

Our Motley Crew consists of our VP volunteers that step forward whenever there is some work to be done here in VP... It isn't always the same people, but there is a willing number that helps keep our costs down and is one of the main reasons that there has not been a dues increase since 2004...


The Motley Crew Strikes Again!!!

At the last VP HOA meeting, it was decided that the Bulletin Boards by the mail boxes would be repaired rather than replaced...

Danny Hart agreed to take on that project... With the help of Lee Beuckman, John Eppley, Maurice Gaudette and Tom Guistino, all the Boards have been repaired at a considerable savings to our VP community...

 

A special thanks to Joe Magisano for the work he did on the pool area and for the help from John Holmes and Charlie Hallerbach. Great Job.

Thanks again to our Volunteers who keep our VP Community looking so good while keeping our dues at a reasonable rate and have not been increased since 2004 even tho the clubhouse was doubled in size and a new swimming pool was added in that timeframe... Compare that to the increase in cost of living the past few years...
