Current and Up-coming Event’s
Aloha folks, we want to remind everyone that the up-coming Association’s Annual Meeting will be held on the Recreation Deck; Monday, March 10th, 2014 starting at 7:00 pm. Sign in will begin at 6:30pm. But, we will have drinks and pupu’s available from 6:00 pm. Please come early if you want to talk story or meet with friends and neighbors.
Fire Alarm Testing
Our Annual Fire Alarm testing was re-scheduled and will be done on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. The testing will be from 8 am until 2 pm. During this time there will be noise and intermittent ringing of the bells. The alarms will all be tested and the staff drilled on their emergency responses. This is only a test and is to ensure everyone’s safety. If you have questions or concerns please contact the General Manager at your convenience.
The next regular meeting of the board of Directors is on Monday, February 3, 2014 at 7:00 pm on the recreation deck. All owners are invited and encouraged to attend. This is the time to bring your questions and concerns directly to the board. For anyone unable to attend the meeting you are always welcome to put your questions and comments in writing and submit them to the General Manager a week before the meeting. They will then be reviewed by the board during or after the regular meeting.
We have had a lot of plumbing leaks recently and want to ask all of our residents to please take the time and inspect your plumbing fixtures. If you’re in doubt about something please call the General or Operations Manager who will be glad to assist you. One of us is here every morning of everyday.
Did you know we have maintenance personnel here everyday? This allows us to offer AC service each day including on the weekends. Additionally, you can schedule at your convenience, even in the evenings should you choose to be present during the work. We always prefer someone to be home. If you give us written permission on the AC notices, the work can be done in your absence. It’s important that it be done so don’t throw away the notice you received with no action taken. We continue to have more and more leaks from clogged AC pans. This could simply be avoided if folks would fill out and return the notices. Thank you to all those who do this.
Update Your Registration
Please let us know if you have changed your phone number or moved from one unit to another? We also need to ensure your emergency contact information is kept current. When there is a leak or any other kind of emergency it is imperative that we be able to contact you. If you’re not sure, just call us and ask us to validate your information. We can check to see if its current. Please also include in your registration if you have animals or park a vehicle in the garage.
We have free wi-fi available for all Residents use on both the Recreation Deck and in the ground floor lobby. Please feel free to avail yourself of this amenity. Ask security to help you set it up if you’re having trouble logging in.
Farewell to the Newsletter
This is the last newsletter that we will send to off-site owners for a while so please sign up via email for future ones.
Dropping cigarette’s over the lanais is not just against the house rules, it is also a criminal offense of endangerment. Because you could harm another person or create a fire, the bottom line is; don’t do it! Anyone caught will be prosecuted. I’m saddened to have to write this, but it’s necessary because a few people have already done this.

Please do not let your four legged friends run loose in the hallways. Also whenever possible please try to avoid crowding into a full elevator with an animal. Some folks are sensitive to these things because they have allergies or have been frightened or bitten. We want to do our best to make everyone happy by respecting boundaries.
The past notices for Diversified exterminators are no longer valid. We will post new ones as it gets closer to their return time in March. They require that anyone sighing up to have their unit treated at the discounted rate call them directly to arrange payment and scheduling.
For your reference Diversified Exterminators has a new phone number 377-6109.
On a related note, since they come only every three months a good remedy for the interim to help keep pests away is to purchase and use your own roach motels such as the ones they offer next door at the Food Pantry or City Mill.
The board approved the addition of a mixed recycling container in the back at our November meeting. At a cost of only a $100.00 per month this allows us to offer you a greater diversity in recycling some of your refuse materials. Please use the bins in the chute room. You may now drop off all glass (not just bottles), any kind of bi-metal or aluminum (most all cans), all types of plastic ( not just water bottles), and you can also leave cardboard and paper. Please help
