Heritage Oaks - Georgetown, Texas 78633

Fourth Annual Chili Cook-Off Competition By Helen Klenz and Eva Froude Once again, the smell of Chili will be in the air, pots of chili will be on the countertops, and the sampling line will host a bevy of chili tasters/judges as they chat while waiting their turn to sample the entries!!! The Fourth Annual Heritage Oaks Chili Cook-off will be held on Friday, January 17, 2014. Teams or individuals may enter the competition with one pot of chili. Possible varieties include traditional Texas chili (no beans), beef chili with beans, three alarm chili (being hot enough to bring tears to the eyes of the unaware), chili of some combination of great flavors and just enough heat to make it interesting, and, finally, chicken chili (sometimes called Chili Blanco). Prizes will be awarded for the best overall chili to the first, second and third place winners. With receipts, participants will be refunded the cost of their ingredients (except spices). Samples will be served as part of the social hour appetizers with the tasters voting to determine winners. Ballots will be counted by a panel of unbiased judges. Entry forms may be obtained by calling Linda Zazula at (512)240-5139. Those not making chili are asked to bring an appetizer, side dish, or dessert. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with chili tasting and appetizers. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. Coffee, iced tea and water will be provided. Those wishing some other beverage should BYO. Cost is $5.00 per person. Make checks payable to Heritage Oaks of Georgetown HOA. Reservations are due by January 10 and can be made with Eva Froude, 817 Caprock Canyon, 591-7308 or Helene Shelmire, 838 Riverwalk, 943-9216.

CARE TEAM: Mock Code Review For Those Certified in CPR/AED The HO AED (Automated External Defibrillator) coordinators will conduct a free mock code review on Saturday, February 1, 2014 from 10:00am to 11:00am in the Club House. CPR/AED certification is valid for 2 years, but a review class must be offered during the year following certification. While this 2/1/2014 class is aimed primarily at those who received certification on 1/23/2013 when it was offered here in HO, it is open to any resident who would like to practice CPR/AED skills previously learned. There will be no new certification at this session. Instead you will have the opportunity to refresh your memory on the process of performing CPR, using the AED, and helping someone who is choking. In order to have an appropriate number of resuscitation manikins to practice with, we need to know how many residents will be attending the review. Please RSVP by Wednesday, January 22 to Marie Blom (512-240-5364) or Maureen Cannon (512-281-8779).

Eat Dessert First!

TWO FUN SOCIAL EVENTS

Many of us are tempted to eat dessert first and it was actually possible at the Holiday Dinner at the Clubhouse on Friday, December 13th. The tables were beautifully decorated and the dessert, a beautiful piece of White Chocolate Cheesecake, just beckoned. As you would expect, some diners succumbed!

Dancing to the Oldies In January, JOHNNY YOUNGBLOOD OF THE GOLDEN OLDIES SHOW will perform on Friday, January 10, 2014 from 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. at the Clubhouse. Come dance the night away for only $5.00 per person.

This annual event, sponsored by the Women of Heritage Oaks (WHO) and catered by Tastefully Yours, was a huge success and proved to be a very enjoyable evening. The dinner consisted of perfectly-prepared Rosemary Pork with Jezebel sauce, Green Beans Almandine, Threecheese Potatoes, Spinach Salad and Homemade Yeast Rolls. This was preceded with a wonderful array of appetizers furnished by the ladies of WHO.

Make your reservations today by dropping off a check with Darlene and David Homier at 842 Caprock Canyon or calling (512) 240-5506. Makes checks payable to Heritage Oaks Georgetown HOA. We need a head count by Wednesday, January 8, 2014 so we can make the dance floor big enough so everyone will have lots of room to show their amazing dance moves! Please feel free to bring snacks and BYOB for your table!

Following the dinner, the Heritage Oaks Chorus entertained us with a few selections of Christmas carols and invited the attendees to sing along in the final number. You can tell this group has been doing some heavy practicing for this event! After a few announcements by our “Mistress of Ceremonies”, Joyce Helm, Janine Alford reported the results of the charity drive to support Meals on Wheels of Georgetown. The final total of checks collected at the Social event was $2,484.00, demonstrating the open hearts and emotional support of this worthy charity! So, we bring to a close the final Social of 2013 and a warm “thank you” to Barbara Rauch and her team of WHO volunteers. Awesome job!

2014 HOA Board Elections

Distinguished Speaker Enlightens Residents!

Call for Nominations The 2014 Nominating Committee is urging all residents to place their names in nomination for Board of Directors for terms expiring in March. The only qualification is that the nominee must own property in Heritage Oaks or represent the declarant.

By Don McCullough

All five members of the Board are elected for two-year terms. They are staggered, so that two members are elected one year and three are elected the following year. In March, Bobby Hargrove, Pat McCutchin and Dee Nafarrate will complete their terms. Board members are elected at-large, so eligible voters will be allowed to vote for up to three nominees. The candidates with the three highest number of votes will be elected. The election will be during the Annual Meeting of the Members on March 13, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Clubhouse. Each candidate will have time to speak and answer questions. Blank forms are located on the desk in the Clubhouse. February 11th is the last day for nominations to be received.

Interested in RV Camping? A gathering of interested Heritage Oaks residents owning RV’s met on December 14 for coffee and donuts to discuss starting a new RV camping group. The group decided on a couple of guiding principles such as keeping membership to the Heritage Oaks neighborhood, keeping trips within 200 miles of Georgetown and holding the duration of events to three or four days. A decision was made to schedule the first outing in March but not during Spring Break. The next meeting is scheduled for February 15 at 9:30 a.m. where attendees are invited to present ideas for trips. Any Heritage Oaks residents interested in RV camping are welcome at the next meeting in the Clubhouse or by contacting John and Pat Jones at (512) 943-4095.

We all belong to the Pedernales Electric Co-op, so gather round the campfire and we will all sing Cumba-yah together. Bet you did learn some things from Matthew Gonzales' talk on December 4th...such as we earn Capital Credits for our power usage, and our earned points are applied against our bills in the early part of each year. Additionally, we get to vote for an area representative to serve on the Pedernales Electric Cooperative this coming year. Yes, we are all considered "owners" of the PEC since we are all Co-op members, and profits are re-invested in keeping the PEC equipment cutting-edge and state of the art. So how come, several attendees wanted to know, do we get unwanted "pings" or power interruptions that require clock re-settings and fresh boots on our computers? As might be expected, the possibilities were listed as vegetation, animals, or emergency shut downs when there is a surge. These outages are monitored in the operations center, but he said concentrated consumers complaints also have an effect and that every home should invest in a house surge protector to minimize these annoying interruptions. You can call 888-883-3379 to report these outages. PEC is currently celebrating its 75th service anniversary and they serve 250,000 Hill Country homes inside an 81 square mile boundary. The power they generate is developed from 50% natural gas, 46% coal, and the rest is green power from west Texas wind and solar. A new pricing process to levy higher residential user rates is now under study. They are also considering moving into selling power to commercial users. All of their metering locations are automated and monitored out of their Liberty Hill location. Gonzales gave everyone who attended his talk a nice green folding tote bag saying "Green Works".

Women of Heritage Oaks (WHO) Christmas Luncheon On Thursday, December 19, 2013, the Women of Heritage Oaks (WHO) celebrated their seventh annual Christmas luncheon. There were 82 wonderful ladies in attendance along with two guests. We feasted on ham & spinach quiche, tomato basil soup, homemade tea breads, green salad with cranberry congealed garnish and homemade Christmas cookies. All of the attendees took home a sample box of candies and a recipe book of all the baked goods we enjoyed during the festivities. (Maybe they will try them out and share them with you during one of our future socials.) Our guest speakers were Zelinda Richards, the Family Specialist with the Georgetown school system, and Keirsten Bumgardner, The NEST Coordinator. Zelinda talked with us about the wide ranging extent of the children in transition in our area. One fact she shared is that there are 10,000 students in the Georgetown school system, and half of them are on food assistance. It was quite eye opening to hear of the need in our community. Keirsten talked with us about reaching one of the goals of the Georgetown Project to open an overnight facility. This facility is housed in the former NEST location and can accommodate twelve Georgetown children. The Nest Drop-In Center moved to an alternative location down the street from this home and offers support with laundry and showering facilities, meals four days a week, counseling, tutoring, resume preparation, art instruction, a recreation area, and free haircuts. We were delighted to choose The NEST for our charity project again this year. Keirsten was overwhelmed with our generosity and shared that she was able to give several students their “shoebox gifts� when they visited the facility the very same day. She said that they were delighted and intrigued with the variety of gifts. Marilyn Richards along with the members of the Needle and Thread, presented Keirsten and Zelinda with a donation of $500.00 to their support agency, The Georgetown Project. They were surprised and delighted with this donation. We are so glad we could share the presentation with them. Our Heritage Oaks Community Chorus ended our luncheon with several selections. The attendees were delighted with the new arrangements. All of the guests also got to participate by joining in with some of the traditional favorites. On January 16, 2014, the WHO will hold its annual planning session. Come join us to hear what is proposed, to submit your own ideas, and to let us know what functions you would support. The meeting is open to all the women who live in Heritage Oaks, so come and enjoy the fellowship.

Bev Smith, Zelinda Richards and Keirsten Bumgardner

NEEDLE AND THREAD ENDS YEAR ON HIGH NOTE Needle and Thread ended the year on a high note with a year-end meeting reporting donations being made to three charities. The Nest of the Georgetown Projects received a $500 donation, the Linus Connection received $200 and Operation Gratitude received $100. The Nest supports the homeless teenagers of Georgetown; the Linus Connection supports children in crisis in Williamson County and Operation Gratitude supports our first responders and service members overseas. These donations were made possible with the success of the annual Needle and Thread Artisan Fair that was held in November. The year-end meeting also resulted in the election of officers with Marilyn Richards as President, Glenda Deal as Vice President, Sharon Hedrick as Treasurer and Sherrill McCullough as Secretary. Plans are under way for 2014 with a pizza lunch on January 13 for all Heritage Oaks residents interested in the fabric, thread, and yarn arts. The January meeting will include survey results as to the major interests of Heritage Oaks residents considering membership in the Needle and Thread group. The 2014 calendar of events will also be decided at the January meeting. Show and Tell featured Helen Klenz’s quilt made from t-shirts gathered from her travels and life experiences. Included in the quilt were t-shirts featuring several cats that captured Helen’s eye during their travels. After a short business meeting, the group retired to Mimi’s Cafe for their annual holiday lunch and gift exchange. Debbie Cox read one of her annual Right-Left stories where presents were passed either to the right or left depending on the story line. Restaurant on-lookers enjoyed the passing of the gifts as much as the Needle and Thread diners and were laughing along with the group as gifts were passed back and forth around the table. Anyone interested in Needle and Thread and wanting to know more about the group should plan to attend their meeting on Monday, January 13, 2014 at the Clubhouse from 10:00 am to noon. Future announcements will be posted on the new Heritage Oaks website.

Residents Share Thanksgiving

Heritage Oaks Chorus Performs First “Concert for the Community”

By Helen Klenz An impromptu Thanksgiving dinner in the Clubhouse was enjoyed by 34 Heritage Oaks residents on Thanksgiving Day. Any resident who was not otherwise committed was welcome to attend by paying $3 for meats and pies and bringing a dish to pass.

The Heritage Oaks Community Chorus ended the year on a high note, performing an evening of Holiday music for residents on Sunday, December 15th. This talented group of 14 people have been working diligently to prepare for three events during this season; performing for the December Social, the Women of Heritage Oaks (WHO) Brunch and this special Concert for the Community.

There was a very full dinner of turkey and dressing, roast pork, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry salads, sweet potatoes and more. It was topped off with pumpkin pie and ice cream, pumpkin cheesecake and the always-enjoyed iced tea and coffee.

While they sing beautifully as a group, it was especially fun to hear four talented singers perform solo. Rose Pace’s voice added a special interlude in the song “The Coventry Carol”. Jo Rake and Curt Riggs performed a wonderful and animated duet to “Let It Snow/The Snow’s Gotta Go” and Joyce Helm sang a fun rendition of “Santa Baby” which was punctuated by the antics of Budge Mabry. Toward the end, the audience was engaged for a sing-a-long to bring a close to the concert.

The dinner was the brain child of Linda Zazula, former Social Committee chair. She was assisted by her husband, Frank, Don and Helene Shelmire, and Dennis and Helen Klenz. After lunch, some managed a game of Scrabble while others just chatted the afternoon away.

Coffee and Christmas treats were enjoyed by all the residents as the evening event was concluding. We are hoping for a repeat performance by an even larger Community Chorus in the new year! The Chorus will resume rehearsals on Tuesday, January 7 at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse ballroom. Music for the Spring Concert will include pieces made famous by ABBA, The Mamas and The Papas, the Beatles and 60’s girl groups. All residents of the Heritage Oaks community (especially men) are invited to join the chorus. Residents gather for a Thanksgiving meal

On the Mats by Joyce Helm In last month’s Nutshell article, I mentioned that I was going to offer a “New-to-Yoga” class for folks interested in learning about the practice of yoga. I’ve heard from a number of couples and individuals who are interested in attending this kind of class and I’ve scheduled an initial session for Thursday, January 9, from 9 – 10 a.m. in the Clubhouse ballroom. The goal of this session will be to give an overview of yoga, introduce the typical class format, highlight the benefits of the practice, and generally just take the mystery out of yoga. It’s an appropriate starting point for individuals who know nothing about the practice, as well as for people who have not taken classes in a long time and are looking for a re-entry point. I’m in hopes that this session will encourage participants to join the regularly-scheduled classes on Tuesday afternoons (3:30 – 4:40 p.m.) and/or Friday mornings (8:15 – 9:30 a.m.). If there’s continued interest, a similar class will likely be offered once a quarter. Typical exercise clothing is appropriate (i.e., something that’s non-binding, but not too loose and floppy). Mats are provided and the class will be free. (Regularly scheduled classes are $5.00.) If you’d like more information, give me a call @ 512-942-0030, or email scottandjoycehelm@gmail.com.

And All Were Merry...

Budge Mabry and Don McCullough assist with the lighting of the lights on the Georgetown Square. Also helping with the lighting duties was Ray Dorton while Sherrill McCullough and Bobbie Mabry gave moral support during the cold night.

Not to be outdone by the lighting of Austin's Zilker Park tree and the lights on Georgetown's Square, Caprock neighbors, led by Caprock Canyon's own little drummer boy Budge Mabry, celebrate the lighting of the lamplight tree in Don and Sherrill McCullough's front yard.

The WHO Christmas Luncheon Committee.

Longhorn Cavern Cove residents celebrated their third annual Christmas dinner at Tony & Luigi's restaurant on December 14 2013. Dinner was followed by a white elephant gift exchange at Bob & Sharon Drewitt's house where refreshments, desserts, Christmas gifts and friendship was shared. Highlight of the evening was when Bill Morris ended up with the white elephant gift he and Carol brought. Fun was had by all. Joyce Helm asks “Santa Baby” Budge Mabry for just a few “little” things.

The SHOW (Single Heritage Oaks Women) Christmas party was held at Dotty Dominguez' home on Lost Maples. They enjoyed hot hor d'oeuvres, sweets and some Christmas beverages with lots of conversation before having a "White Elephant" gift exchange. Before the end of the evening, they were pleased to have local carolers stop by the party and join them for a snack and some indoor warmth. Pictured above are Ginny Gersch, Dee Nafarrate, Rose Pace, and Diane Tidwell.

A few of Section 7 neighbors got together Monday, December 16 at Santa and Mrs. Claus' house for chili and sangrias, a prelude to going out and caroling. "Sing or Treat" opened doors, and for some it did NOT! A good time was had by all as they hurried, and sang (or tried to sing), from door to door so Santa could get back to work. Get your jingle on - Ho Ho Ho! (Note: they didn't want to give their names out for fear of repercussion and ending up on the naughty list!)
