This year we will also collect monetary donations to be given to a needy family. Residents are encouraged to bring a name of a deserving family.

Berkshire Celebrated National Night Out!

November 2012

Tuesday, October 2, 2012, was National Night Out in Texas and Berkshire celebrated with activities, food and speakers. Residents came out and met neighbors while also learning about the culture of India from fellow resident, Annapurna Jonnalagadda. She explained the meaning of the colors in the flag as well as displaying Indian art and pieces that depicted Indian culture. Thank you Anna. Residents enjoyed hearing from speakers from the community regarding lowering the speed limit within Berkshire and a Chili’s “give back program” to help raise money for scholarships for Berkshire graduates. Shanna Lopez from Waste Management gave a very informative overview on the recycling program that recently started in Berkshire. Deputies Wingo and Thomas informed residents of law enforcement procedures and activities within the community. Toys were distributed to the kids and Papa John’s pizza was served. Giveaways included gas, restaurant and store gift cards as well as services donated by local businesses. Thank you to Celebrity Cuts Barbershop and Pizza Hut for their donations. National Night Out is a program to send a message to criminals that a neighborhood has banded together to fight against drugs and crime. Thank you Berkshire for your support. Your HOA Board

16100 Cairnway, Suite 285 Suspicious Activity

If you notice any suspicious activity in the community, please call the Harris County Sheriff ’s Department non-emergency number at 713-221-6000 and provide as many details as possible.

Home Security Tips

Doors: • Use your locks - a lock is only useful if you use it. • Make sure your doorways are visible from the street and not obscured by shrubs, etc.

Trash In & Around the Community

We have a contractor on property every Thursday who does odd jobs and picks up trash around the community. The problem with trash in and around the community is increasing. Please help us keep the community clean by not littering and taking the time to pick up any trash you notice on your street and/or around your home. We have a volunteer in the community who is interested in starting a “Clean Up Committee” to assist with this problem. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Margie Naranjo at PCMI.

Parking on the Street

Windows: • Make sure your windows have good locking mechanisms. • Make sure windows are visible from the street and not obscured by shrubs, etc.

The Association receives numerous complaints a day regarding cars parked in the street. Parking in the street not only looks bad but also creates a safety hazard. Please refrain from parking in the street as it is against the Deed Restrictions. Vehicles should be parked in the garage or in the driveway at all times.

Landscape: • Keep trees and shrubbery trimmed to prevent concealment for a potential burglar.

Running a Business from your Home

Lighting: • Timers on lights give your house the lived-in look while you are away. Alarms: • Remember, like a lock, an alarm is only valuable if you use it.

CAREYDENTISTRY.COM

The Association has become aware of some homeowners running a business from their home. Please note that the Berkshire community is a “single family” home community and running a business from your home is strictly prohibited. These homes are being monitored by our contracted Harris County Sheriff, as well as our property manager. Be advised that the Board of Directors will take all measures, including legal action, to see that this practice is stopped.

Graffiti

Please report any graffiti you may see in the community to Margie Naranjo at PCMI.

Address Stones

Please be certain that shrubs are trimmed away from address stones. This is very important for 911 emergency vehicles.

Trashcans

Trashcans MUST be stored out of public view except on days of trash pick up. Also, please remember to remove trashcans from the curb in a timely manner after trash pick up.

Flat Curbs

Please refrain from parking vehicles on the flat curbs. Vehicles parked on the curbs eventually cause damage and deterioration. Further note that storage of vehicles on streets or within road right-of-way is specifically prohibited.

Board Members

Your current Board members are as follows: Beola-President Carlos-Vice President Barry- Secretary Carlos- Treasure Don-Director at Large

Loose Dogs

To report loose dogs please contact Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191.

Notice to Pet Owners

We love dogs - we really do. That’s why the association is committed to enforcing the county leash law on association property. According to the U.S. Humane Society, an unleashed dog has an average life span of less than four years. Allowing your dog to run free threatens your dog’s health and welfare and the happiness it brings to you. We also love our community. That’s another reason the association is committed to enforcing the county leash law - so all residents may enjoy our community. We trust we can count on you for voluntary compliance with the leash law. We don’t like to call animal control, but we won’t have any choice if your dog is running free.

Tennis Courts

Please be advised that tennis courts are to be used for playing tennis only. A tennis court key is required to enter the tennis courts and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone found to be in the tennis courts for reasons other than playing tennis will be immediately reported as trespassing. If you are in need of a tennis court key, please contact Margie Naranjo at PCMI. Keys are $10 each. You may mail your check, payable to Berkshire CAI, to Margie and a key will be sent to you in the mail. Please remember to note “tennis court key” in the memo section of your check.

Meeting Room

If you are interested in renting the meeting room, please see the website for more information or contact Margie Naranjo at PCMI.

To report a burned out streetlight, you may contact CenterPoint Energy at 713-207-2222 or online at cnp.centerpointenergy.com/ outage. Please know the number that is on the pole and street address of the pole when reporting.

Thanksgiving Trivia

Thanksgiving was celebrated throughout the colonies after fall harvests. However, all thirteen colonies did not celebrate Thanksgiving at the same time until October 1777. In 1789, George Washington declared the day a holiday. Sarah J. Hale, a poet, had begun lobbying for a national Thanksgiving holiday. During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln, looking for ways to unite the nation, discussed the subject with Hale. He gave his Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1863 and declared the last Thursday in November a day of thanksgiving. In 1941, President Roosevelt signed a bill making the fourth Thursday the official holiday. Each year, the President of the United States pardons a turkey before Thanksgiving at a White House ceremony. The tradition’s origin is uncertain. One story claims that Harry Truman pardoned a turkey in 1947, but the Truman Library has been unable to find any evidence for this. Another claims that the tradition dates back to Abraham Lincoln pardoning his son Tad’s pet turkey. Remember the men and women fighting for our freedom in locations near and far. They are there defending our right to celebrate Thanksgiving.

It takes a lot of community volunteers to put on an event that is as well run and organized as the Cypress Hoops Invitational. “Instrumental in last year’s event were John Fox, Fox and Bubela and Leslie Martone, who is now President of the Cy-Fair Chamber of Commerce and sponsors such as the event’s underwriter, North Cypress Medical Center,” said Hull.

Where “Volunteers are Treasures!” All of our volunteers are true treasured heroes. They help in the library, sell school spirit items, organize fundraisers, read to a classroom, make costumes and test vision and hearing. The list is endless and their experience is vast. If you listen to their stories though, you will find that in all the things volunteers do, there is an element of discovery. They find not only what a child can do, but what their own treasured gift might be. And yes, there has probably even been an encounter with a dragon or two along the way. Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is so fortunate to be able to draw from such a great diversity of skills and knowledge in our community. VIPS (Volunteers in Public Schools) in Cy-Fair ISD center the attention of their service on supporting students and staff and making a significant contribution to the education of children. These jewels in our district give freely of their time and resources and have an impact on the academic and personal development of Cy-Fair ISD students. If you are interested in being involved in Cy-Fair schools as a volunteer and making a difference or would like more information, please contact Pam Scott, Partners in Education Director at, 281-894-3950. Cy-Fair ISD & Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) November and December 2012 Events for our Treasured Volunteers: November 8th - VIPS General Meeting - 9:30 AM to 12 PM, Berry Center.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through November. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

have a stress free thanksgiving! 1. Get Enough Sleep This is the number one cause of stress, we run ourselves ragged and don’t take the time to relax and recharge. A good night’s sleep will have you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the holidays. 2. Know your Boundaries If you have accepted to cook the holiday meal, make sure you know just how many family members will be attending your feast. Know when to say no to extra stragglers that family members might want to bring along. This will make your meal planning easier. 3. Count to 10 It is a good thing to take a breath and count to ten to collect yourself. You will make it through! 4. Let Bygones be Bygones There will be family members who love to make snarky little comments, we all have one of those in our families. The best way to approach this is to just ignore the comment and hopefully, they will stop once they see they haven’t gotten a rise out of you. 5. Keep Everyone Busy Assign people duties, get the kids to set the table, have Aunt Margie help with dinner, get everyone involved so you don’t have to take it all on yourself.

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for what we have in our lives. Go around the dinner table and have everyone state what he or she are thankful for; don’t forget to remember those who have passed to keep them in spirit.

Please note: the following is what the American Egg Board says on using raw eggs:
 With eggs and all other raw foods from animals, there is a small possibility of Salmonella food poisoning. The risk is greater for those who are pregnant, elderly or very young and those with medical problems, which have impaired their immune systems. These individuals should avoid raw and undercooked animal foods. Healthy people need to remember that there is a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled, fresh, grade AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the shell. Refrigerate broken-out eggs, prepared egg dishes and other foods if you won’t be consuming them within an hour.
