A Letter from Our Genealogist

by Esther Lough

As most of you know, our genealogy group has been on hiatus for a year or more, but we are going to resume weekly classes on Friday afternoons at 1 pm beginning on July 5 in the computer room at the clubhouse. This class is absolutely free to everyone who wants to attend. Nothing is rigidly structured and everyone is eager to help each other. These sessions ordinarily last only an hour or two and all you need to bring is a pen, notepad and questions. We provide free forms and other materials to get you started. Because a larger TV was purchased for use in the clubroom, Ernie has mounted the smaller unit in the computer room for our use. Those with laptops can bring their files that they may need help on, and can have instant access to this TV so that members can discuss any problems, make suggestions, how and where to research, etc. Some residents have expressed an interest about their ancestry but are hesitant to get involved. Perhaps they don't know how to begin or are afraid it will be too time consuming, but be assured that you can work at your own pace as well as setting up and organizing your files individually. Once you learn the basics, there is nothing to keep you from building your database and sharing with people all over the world through the internet. There is a saying among genealogists that every seventh person you meet has the potential of being at least your fifth cousin. I have found two of mine here in our Community. When you make these wonderful discoveries, we genealogists refer to that as the "Happy Dance," so come and join us to see if we might help you make some thrilling discoveries on your ancestors. As always, I am available to help even outside the class, so don't hesitate to contact me at 480-288-8579 or incosmom@yahoo.com

Greetings to the Residents at Desert Harbor,

My name is Janna S. Reynolds, I am very grateful for the opportunity to introduce myself as the new District Community Manager for La Casa Blanca & Desert Harbor! I come to you with extensive background in property management. My most recent role being the Chief Operations Manager for a property management company located in Plover, Wisconsin, Where I ran 750 Apartments, 160 Manufactured home sites, and 24 commercial units. I have been able to effectively manage teams from as small as 5 people to 150 people with a supportive management style. I truly believe that the residents of the community are the heartbeat of the company, and I promise to do my best by remaining transparent, and respectful in order to solve issues, and best of all to ensure a happy, fun, comfortable home life for all residents.
Please bear with me as I familiarize myself with the property and Sun Community’s policies and procedures. I will be facilitating a community meeting for all residents here shortly and I am excited to meet everyone. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns you may feel free to contact me at 480-648-1370 or e-mail me at jreynolds1@suncommunities.com. I am very excited to be a part of the Desert Harbor family, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of this community.
