President's Message

December 2018

Dear Whiffletree Residents,

The annual Holiday Party brought neighbors together to share food, friends and fellowship. As we do each year, the board presented the opportunity to reach out and show our support of a local charitable organization. This year we are making an amazing donation! Seventeen residents donated $300.00 of their personal funds to My Friend’s House, the only mission in Collin County providing shelter, free counseling, and programs and services for ages newborn to 21 years. In its tenth year, the shelter specializes in taking in large sibling groups that have been removed from their homes by Child Protective Services, providing these children with the best possible shot of staying together during their future placement process. It’s not too late. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Karen Voelker, City House at 972-424-4626.

Lots of improvements planned for the Villas in 2019 and some have already started. Replacement of the sidewalk and grass on Lorimar is well underway. Bids for pruning the park trees have been reviewed with one company scheduled to complete a small job to demonstrate their skill before awarding the contract. And there is more to come.

The annual letter and invoice were mailed last week. Just a reminder there is a 10% reduction in dues if paid in full by January 31, 2019.

Wishing each of you a happy and prosperous new year.

Hello

Wanted to reach out to you before the rush of the holiday season is fully upon us. First, thank you for your continued support of the Villas in 2018. Your contributions are innumerable and appreciated.

You can't miss the new signs at the entries to the Villas, Joan did an amazing job on them! The design ensures many years of use. Thanks Joan.

I stepped in to help prepare for the Holiday party. The flyer went out last week and the Sanders have the items they need for hosting. In appreciation for hosting the party, the board gave Al and Fran a small house gift. I contacted My Friend's Place to confirm they accept gift cards. They also accept fast food gift cards as many children arrive at the facility with empty tummies. I also provided a brief write up of My Friend's Place that Fran will share during the party.

Slow down while driving through the neighborhood.

All residents should take note of this rule. With children out and about in full-force during the warm days and evenings, you’re more likely than ever to see a distracted kid chasing after a run-away baseball or riding bikes on the streets.

Slow down when driving through the homeowners association, be extra aware of what’s going on around you, and be prepared to stop suddenly if a child runs out into the road. Parents should remind kids that they have a responsibility to be aware of oncoming cars as well, and to be extra careful when they are on the street.

Whether they’re playing at a park or riding their bikes around the neighborhood, it’s important that kids understand what types of injuries could occur during these activities and how they can best avoid them. If an injury does occur, your kids need to know what actions to take—such as alerting a trusted adult or, in the case of a true emergency, calling 911.

Fun Facts:

  • Due to an opossum's low body temperature and successful immune system, it's very rare for one to carry rabies.
  • In northern regions, opossums often have abnormally short tails - the ends are lost due to frostbite.
  • The Virginia opossum has more teeth than any other North American Mammal - 50, to be exact.
  • The Virginia opossum is the only marsupial that inhabits the U.S.
  • A study conducted by a University of Florida researcher traces the existence of opossums as far back as the extinction of dinosaurs.
  • Although many throughout North America refer to native opossums as "possums", the term "possum" technically refers to a classification of marsupials living in Australia, New Guinea and Sulawesi.
