This page provides a means for Voting Members and Association Management to post news, announcements, and reminders for events and activities taking place in individual Villages. 

Voting Members may submit items for publication to Rebecca Murphy at eenews@comcast.net.
Residents who have questions or suggestions for improved communication are encouraged to contact their respective Voting Member(s).
