Mill Creek Community Association had their fall Neighborhood Night Out meeting at the Mill Creek Country Club grounds. We invited all residents to a pot luck meal with opportunity to hear from the new owners of the club concerning their plans for the future. We had a great crowd and the pot luck meal was enjoyed but all attending. We always seem to have a variety of good food brought to these events by our members.
Tables and chair where arranged around the outdoor patio area. Guest could pick up their food from the tables arranged in the club house and return outside to enjoy an evening with friends and neighbors. We were blessed with pleasant weather as the heat from this past summer had turned to a more enjoyable night out.
Our Vice President Becky Lea welcomed all guest and gave a review of the situation involving officers of our board of directors. She expressed a need for more Mill Creek residents to participate in the board duties. Becky explained that our Christmas/Annual meeting will be taking place the second week in December she also answered questions from the guests.
It is also our custom for our annual National Night Out to invite the Police, Fire Department and the Mayor. They all three informed our group of necessary activities to keep our area safe. They mentioned safety on the roads as well as around our homes. The Mill Creek Community Association had been getting call and email about our covenants and how we can get residents to keep up their property clean and beautiful. Becky informed the guest that the board is working on this project in organizing a committee to inform members of work that needs to be done on their property.
Becky then introduced Armando Lenis part of the Mill Creek Country Club owners to give a review of things they have accomplished and plans for the future. Armando answered many questions from the residents as to their concerns. He mentioned the need for more sponsors of the golf holes of the 27 holes. This money is used to make the many changes and upgrade needed for the golf course. Other donation will be used next year when work can begin on dredging the pond this winter to keep it from leaking. Plus they will accept donation for work to be completed on the golf holes damaged by the flood three years ago. Armando mentioned the expansion of the club house including a new kitchen and more space in the Pro Shop and offices.
