2012 Fall Festival a Neighborhood Success

Thanks to the efforts of a lot of our friends, the 2012 Fall Festival was a fun time for Hidden Springs Ranch families. With thanks to everyone who showed up for Volunteer Day, new pavilion lights were installed and the benches were painted in time to be used for the festivities. The board especially wishes to thank Leslie Bradshaw for coordinating the event, Carla Hammers for the terrific Tex-Mex fare, and Ruth Ann Tanton for the wonderful pictures.

Rough counts suggest that between 60 and 70 neighbors showed up for food and fun. The festival began at 5:30 with food and a bouncy castle for the kids, followed by ‘Despicable Me’ just after dusk.

Here are a few photos of the events – enjoy!

BALLOT– Common Area Tree Clearing

Walking Path North of Broken Lance
A large number of trees, located in the common area north of Broken Lance at the creek crossing, succumbed to last year’s record heat and drought. Many of these trees are creating both fire hazards and safety issues for members using the walking path.
The Hidden Springs Ranch Board of Directors solicited bids for the removal of the dead trees and brushy fuels from the common area. The work is expected to cost $4,200 – money that will be drawn from the HOA surplus.
Please take a moment to complete the Neighborhood Ballot indicating whether you wish to raise alternatives to the board before the work is contracted. If you have an alternative you wish the board to consider, please contact the HOA Administrator or any board member by 12:00PM on Monday, November 6.
