Message from the Board President for November 2019
Many of us consider November to be the month that is all about Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t enjoy those group gatherings where family and friends come together to enjoy a day of friendship, family, cooking, eating…and for many…that tryptophan induced nap? Whatever your day looks like, at some point, most will give thought to those things they are most thankful for. If we take some time, our lists will most likely be very long. Since this article is about our Association and our community, let me mention some things I am thankful for here in our own backyard:
Living in the “Jewel of the Desert” is certainly something to be thankful for. Our lake, parks and country club all create a very special place that is like nowhere else in the High Desert.
Community is a word often used to describe a group of people living in the same location; but community is so much more than buildings, lakes, golf courses or parks. Community is defined by the people that live there. The kind and giving people of our community sets us apart from the rest. From our Family Festival and Fireworks show in July to the December Breakfast with Santa, Christmas tree lighting and such, it’s the people here who make our community much more than the amenities we enjoy.
Our Association staff is also another part of our community to be thankful for. Their contribution to our community does not go unnoticed. The day to day business that keeps everything working is a big part of what makes Spring Valley Lake special.
So, as we all enjoy Thanksgiving this month, let’s make sure to include our community and the people that belong to it in our list of things to be thankful for.
Regards, and have a great Thanksgiving.
SVLA Board President
