    SALUTE TO TRUCKEE DAY!

    On April 17th, a parade through Truckee kicked off a day of celebration and fun for those who attended our first annual "Salute To Truckee Day"! Although the weather was snowy and cold, nearly 500 people enjoyed the outdoor bar­ becue, beer, 7-piece country band, speeches, carnival games and haywagon rides.

    President David C. I rmer pre­ sented the architectural draw­ ings of the new Clubhouse and stables (see cut), part of the CI u b Inn i sfree recreational amenities to be built this sum­ mer. Two tennis courts, a swim­ ming pool and parking area will also be constructed as part of this facility, adding a new dimension to the existing Club facilities on Lake Tahoe.

    We had excellent represen­ tation from invited press from Southern California, the Bay Area, Lake Tahoe and Truckee. Additionally, Randy Seisler, Len Rhode and Stan Hein­ deman of the San Francisco 49ers participated in the festivi­ ties, as did Bill Dana who made a special trip from his home in Honolulu.

    Property owners who braved snow warnings included Mr. and Mrs. Martin Sch w ager of Berkeley, the Junior Walter H. Knusts of San Jose, Mrs. Ster­ ling Hoskins, Jr. of Milpitas, the William Berglands of Mt. View, Phyllis McDole, Mr. & Mrs. Carl Schatz, Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Wise, Mr. & Mrs. 8. G. Crawford, Mr. & Mrs. Larry Smith, and the George Hennises from Stockton. There were also a number of property owners from Sierra Meadows, among them the August Siegrists who won a w e e k e n d a t t h e H yatt House/Monterey.

    Survey Information from your Board In the last Shire, the Board put out an overview of the community survey done last summer. Out of that survey, we found three areas that we wanted to address:

    1. Communication and outreach to GDRA members

    2. Compliance with CC&R’s

    3. GDRA budget and finances

    In this article, we will begin with communication and outreach to members.

    When reading the survey, most members answering the survey were satisfied to very satisfied that GDRA is accomplishing the goal of protecting and enhancing the quality of life and property in Glenshire. This goal encompasses helping to keep Glenshire safe, keeping property values up, providing amenities that people can enjoy within budget, and helping to bring the community together in a variety of ways.

    The first part of the goal, keeping Glenshire safe, will focus on fire safety as discussed in our last Shire. This spring, GDRA will be launching a program of fire safety, focusing on commending those who have

    conducted fire safety activities around their respective properties, and encouraging/ educating those who may not be aware of fire safe activities.

    Providing amenities for members/guests to enjoy, and having community gatherings are also part of communication and outreach. We have a beautiful pool now and without doing this work, we would have had to close down the pool, as it was falling apart. Many realtors have commented that having this amenity does keep property values up. Even if there are some that never use the pool, please be assured that if and when you decide to sell your property, this plays a part in keeping your property value up.

    The following are activities provided and paid for by GDRA:

    Glenshire Day which includes GDRA information, Town entity information and a free BBQ for families. Participation from the community is declining, and the cost of putting this on is about $4000. We would like to hear from members about what events are of particular importance to Glenshire and how to decrease costs.

    Spring Cleaning As I write this the spring thaw is revealing what has been hidden under this winter’s snows and is showing the destructive power the snow can possess. The Association is encouraging owners to take the time to attend to repairs and clean up their yards. This is a great opportunity to clean up or make those repairs that you have put off in the past, evaluate the removal of excess “stuff” stored outdoors and take

    Happy curb appeal Not so happy curb appeal

    NOTE FROM YOUR GENERAL MANAGER Dan Warren

    advantage of our annual “Dumpster Day” scheduled for Saturday June 10th from 7am to 1pm or when the dumpsters fill up (whatever occurs first).

    Another vital issue is that with all of the downed trees and branches there is an immediate concern of increase wildfire issues. Down branches and trees also bring a new threat of increased beetle infestations spreading from the still green but broken off branches to live

    trees. Owners should be diligent this spring and clean up any and all downed vegetation.
