Office: Barbara will continue work on formatting, testing statement and label printing for monthly dues statements to be mailed today for three associations.

Operations: Continue with soil preparation, surface root removal and grading work at small area at end of Calico Ct. Pick-up small trees at Home Depot for positioning and planting at that location. This effort to replace many trees removed in prior years and some recently due to disease. Continue work on adult pool restroom #2: removal of wall drywall to facilitate install of plywood onto wall studs before new green drywall sheets are installed: this to discourage fist-punching drywall damage we experienced over the years. Today, much of the crew will be busy with clean-up of common areas for weekend: sidewalks, parking and landscape corridors, to name a few. Work shall continue on sloped and flat roof replacements at 754 Wagonwheel Cir. Check three day weather forecast and direct irrigation timing control cycles as weather conditions and predicted temperatures may require.
