Future Meetings and Events

Format for Meetings:

All meetings are scheduled to take place at HOA#2 MountainView Ballroom or the HOA#1 Activities Center. The location is stated on the announcencement. (see the Welcome page for the address and a map).

Coffee and tea is usually available before the presentation. The program begins with announcements and introductions before the formal meeting. The plan is to conclude the presentation leaving a good half hour for Q and A and discussion.  Sometimes, of course the preponderance of the program will consist of discussion which can last longer.

When the meetings are held at the HOA#1 Activity Center, pot luck brunch is served. The Facilities Coordinator is in charge of set-up, refreshments, and clean-up and is seeking volunteers to help.  Provided beverages will be coffee, tea, tomato and orange juice -with or without vodka. Members bring the great food to eat and share. Why do we collect donations at the door – about $4 per couple is recommended, but not obligatory. There is a $75 cleanup fee for use of the Activities center when food is served. Coffee service at MountainView Ballroom costs about $95.  We need extra dollars to cover the cost of nametags, coffee, juice, paper goods, etc.  In addition, we give each presenter a $50 gift certificate for Amazon, etc. as a token expression of our appreciation. Any additional monies are donated to Tri-Community Food Bank. We also encourage bringing non perishable foods to the meeting which is also donated to the Food Bank.
