Message From the Board President for November 2017
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It’s that time of year when we all need to slow down, enjoy family and friends, and give thanks for all the good in our lives. I know I am guilty of getting caught up in daily activities; running from one task to another, not taking the time to simply appreciate all that God has blessed us with. I hope this will remind all just how much we have to be thankful for.
SVLA held a Community Cleanup Day on Saturday, October 14. It was very successful. A special thanks goes out to Republic Restaurant for supplying Breakfast Burritos to get the morning started. Also, thank you to Jerri Lawrence, Dennis Teece and Al Logan for all their support on the Association side of things; and most of all to everyone who came out and helped clean up the streets and lake shores of the community.
Halloween was very successful. There were lots of children Trick or Treating, and the Association Halloween party for the kids was a big success. SVLA is by far the most popular place in the High Desert for Trick or Treating. The costumes were great and the children very well behaved.
SVLA held its annual Halloween Lighted Boat Parade on October 21. Twenty-two boats participated as they toured around the shores of the lake. It’s always nice to see everyone get together and have a good time supporting community events.
This brings up another community event that I want to inform you about. The annual Tree lighting at the Community Center will be held on December 8, followed by the Christmas parade around the lake. Every year this event is better and better. The maintenance staff outdid themselves last year with the new huge Holiday tree. Come out and enjoy it with family and friends. It promises to be a great time! All SVL members are invited to really get involved and build your own float for the Christmas parade. Participants must fill out an application and waiver to be turned in by December 1.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
