EVENTS


The CW annual fall picnic was a great success with over 50 attendees and the weather was ideal.


Next up is the annual Halloween Party and Parade scheduled for Sunday afternoon, October 28th. More details to follow.


Also, there will be a "gathering around the fire pit" after dusk on Halloween at 120 Connemara Drive. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy some special Halloween punch.


ACC FALL COMMUNITY WALK-THRU


The ACC fall walk-thru will be conducted during the period November 4 - 11. An email reminder will be sent to homeowners prior to the walk-thru but now is a good time to check the condition of your house and lot.
