From the desk of
Sandy Baumstark

The board would like to thank Pat and Denise for their service on the board. Thank you to James and Jill Genso for delivering the ballots in the extreme heat. Beth Chartrand was nominated to fill in for Pat and already has been a big help. Thanks to Paula Barker and Susanne Dallas for volunteering to be treasurer. The Italian food was good, with all the wonderful cooks we are blessed to have in our park. The entertainment was terrific with the Desert Divas playing for 3 hours. Thanks to Tracy for her helpful information on Medicare. On July 9 we are going to have Dance Star Alliance for music and dancing from 5:30-8:30. On July 23 Splendid Absurdity Karaoke is here from 6-9.

Being Active in Our Community
by Jane Boudreau

We want to welcome all our residents to activities in the Clubhouse or hosted by the Activities Organization. Each month the officers and board members schedule events. These include reoccurring activities such as ping pong, cards, water volleyball, water exercise, happy hours, potlucks, shuffleboard, cornhole and many more. Check the calendar of events to see what’s happening at Desert Harbor. The residents are asked to do our part after these events to ready the clubhouse for the next event. This includes cleaning off the tables and returning chairs to the tables. Wipe off the tables and counter tops, washing utensils and cleaning coffee pots Please take home the food items and containers you brought after all events. The items left in the clubhouse are trashed. You are encouraged to wear your name tag while in the clubhouse. Your name tag helps the residents know who you are, we often forget names. Secondly, if you wear your badge while walking or biking in the community it would let residents know you belong. We are all on heightened lookout after the recent break-ins. We have a great community here in Desert Harbor and want everyone to enjoy the activities. Please check the signup sheets for upcoming events located on the north wall of the clubhouse. We do need hosts and hostesses for all our events. Please signup if you are willing to help. Hope to see you at the next activity or event!

Residents Meeting - June 4, 2022

President Sandy called the meeting to order at 9:03 AM with 79 residents present. We stood for the Pledge of Allegiance after which she took roll call. All members of the Board were present with the exception of a Treasurer and Member at Large. We hope to fill both of these positions in the near future. No new residents were present and Wayne Miller made a motion that we accept the May minutes as written with a second by Sandy Kereluk. We had a special guest, Nancy Cline, who is an independent insurance broker. She brought donuts, lots of handouts, and after our meeting gave out lots of gifts to our residents. Hopefully she was able to answer any and all questions you might have had. Paula Barker and Jane Boudreau worked many hours on the audit and Paula stated that all is finally OK. Cami Weiss asked about the "kitchen stuff" and "Easter stuff" and Paula said they were necessary items for both but too much to detail in each category. Cami Weiss made a motion to accept the Treasurer's Report with a second by Jim Harris. Vice President Elaine is in charge of our upcoming Italian Night/Father's Day Spaghetti Dinner/Pot Luck. She mentioned that these evenings require lots of work and workers to be a success. A number of residents volunteered to help. Elaine also thanked everyone who helped to make the Cinco de Mayo dinner such a wonderful success. Secretary Barb asked if there would be any interest in a CPR class and there was quite a bit of interest. It was suggested that we wait until the fall and Vince Trizzino suggested I contact the Red Cross. Barb Winget nominated Suzanne Dallas for the position of Treasurer and Cami Weiss nominated Paula Barker for the same position. In this case we have to have a ballot and James Genso has volunteered to deliver the ballots to each home using the latest Desert Harbor Directory to determine the number of ballots for each household. The return ballot box will be on the counter on the left hand side as you enter the clubhouse. President Sandy said that the Board would like to hire Dance Star Alliance for July 9th. Their fee is $650 so we need to vote on the cost before we hire the band. Dave Borchardt made a motion to pay the fee with a second from Secretary Barb. However, in the meantime, Betty Zaslawsky said that a vote really wasn't necessary because she would happily pay for the band. So that seems to be settled! Thank you, Betty. We were in the same situation for Bee Line Hiway coming on Saturday, October 29th. Their fee is $600.00 and Michelle Nord made a motion with a second by Mike Kereluk to sign the contract and hire them. Paula Barker said that the Treasurer is in need of a new printer and Vice President Elaine said she has an extra printer the newly elected Treasurer can have. President Sandy went over some upcoming events - A Food Truck - Racks and Balls will be here on June 8th at 4:30 PM, June 11th at 3 PM Horse Racing Game in the Clubhouse followed by the Belmont Race at 4 PM, on June 14th at 1 PM a Humana Rep will be in the clubhouse with coffee and donuts, on June 18th we will have our Italian Dinner/Father's Day Dinner, on June 24th a Diamond Dots Class at 10 AM, on June 25th Darron Weston will entertain from 6-9 PM, on June 28th there will be a card making class and on July 4th Ken and Wayne Miller will be grilling outside for our 4th of July bash. Our esteemed librarian Carol Rysavy thanked Paula Barker for her help with the library even though she was disabled and she thanked Barb and Rich Nienkark for stepping in. Bea Goudeseune reminded the ladies that this time they would be having an out of park breakfast at the Broken Yolk. If the men have any questions about their lunch at the American Legion they should call Bob Chapin. Before we adjourned...Lou Smaldino won the birthday $$, Betty Zaslawsky and Don Baumstark split the 50/50 drawing and Art Allen won a Gift Card. The house number drawn was #165 and they were not present. President Sandy asked if there was any other new business and since there was not, Richard Nienkark made a motion to adjourn with a second by Betty Zaslawsky. Respectfully submitted - Barb Nienkark, Secretary
