MONTHLY HOA MEETINGS Make sure you know what is happening in the Pin Oak Village HOA meetings by attending. Meetings are held at 6:30 PM on the second Wednesday of each month.
COME SEE SANTA CLAUS!
Bring the kids to see Santa at no charge and take your own pictures. He will be at Pin Oak Village Clubhouse, 1301 Misty Bend, on Wednesday, December 18th, from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM. Price of admission is a new or gently used book that Katy Area Retired Educators will donate to Texas Children’s Hospital, Katy. This is a great opportunity for you to take pictures and make a book contribution to the KARE project. Call 281-693-2119 for more information.
CLUBHOUSE RENTALS Martha Baxter is in charge of the clubhouse rentals. Pool rentals are still done through Michelle at Sweetwater Pool Company. There are still lots of good dates available for free clubhouse use. We would like to remind all residents that the clubhouse is for Members Only and must be current on all fees. Residents are limited to two free uses per year. There is a $100 DEPOSIT REQUIRED THAT WILL BE REFUNDED, IF THE CLUBHOUSE IS KEPT CLEAN. The clubhouse is also being reserved for possible holiday party use by the Board, for the benefit of Pin Oak Village residents. These parties will be scheduled soon, so watch for upcoming events at our website, www.pinoakvillagekaty.com. To schedule lifeguards for any pool party, contact Michelle with Sweetwater pools at 281-300-6077. There is an additional form for Pool Rental, as well as cost, that must be
filled out and paid prior to scheduling lifeguards. No pool party can be had without the approval of Sweetwater and at least one additional guard. Feel free to contact Martha at 281-392-8007. Martha’s address is 24606 Mt. Auburn Drive. Martha’s email address is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the many clubs and church groups that have reserved weekly dates being sought for by residents, the preference for use will be given to residents needs over weekly functions. Jeff will do his best to accommodate both weekly reservations and resident’s use.
STREETLIGHTS The MUD taxes the residents pay help pay for the streetlights whether they work or not. If a streetlight is out or not working properly, please call 713-207-2222 and report the problem. Each pole has a number on it and you will need to give this number to the operator as well as the names of the closest streets. Last year we had a couple of lights out and the result was vandalism to several mailboxes. We need all lights working to keep our neighborhood safe. Thanks again to the Board of Directors at Ft. Bend County MUD #37 for saving us the cost of these lights.
TRASH PICKUP UPDATE The correct contact for trash pickup for Pin Oak village is as follows: Waste Corporation of Texas (WCA) 281-368-8397. Thanks again to the Board of Directors at Ft. Bend County MUD #37 for saving us the cost of trash pickup. Our MUD directors are saving us thousands of dollars by paying for the lights and trash each month.

No Task is Too Big or Small One Call Does it All!
Please respect other resident’s right to walk the common area ground without fear of attack from an unleashed dog. Laws are written to ensure that owned animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash to free a community of unrestrained and free-roaming animals. Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies infected wildlife. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program’s efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community. LICENSING OF DOGS AND CATS The primary benefit of licensing animals is identification, should that animal become lost. Licensing also: • Ensures that rabies vaccination are current. • Allows for quick identification in case of a bite incident. • Provides revenue to offset the administration costs of the animal control program. VACCINATION Rabies vaccinations are a prerequisite for licensing dogs and cats because they are an important control measure for the public health threat of rabies. In addition to protecting pets, rabies vaccinations provide a barrier between infected wild animals and humans.

GARDENING TIPS FOR DECEMBER • If a long flowering period is desired, pansies should be placed in their permanent beds not later than this month. Fertilize monthly with manure, super-phosphate or a liquid high-phosphate product. Keep flowers picked for more bloom. • Take tulips out of cold storage and plant late this month. • Fertilize established trees, spring-blooming shrubs, spurias and sweet peas (after they are a foot tall) with a fertilizer such as 13-13-13; Louisiana iris with cotton seed meal and manure. • Azaleas and camellias may be moved now. Keep moist to lesson cold weather damage. May acidify again.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING SAFETY! We’re going to be out and about and this means our focus and attention are compromised. Be sure to put safety as your #1 wish item on your holiday shopping list. Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind: • Do not buy more than you can carry. • Save all receipts. • Wait until asked before taking out your credit card or checkbook. • Tell a security guard or store employee if you see an unattended bag or package. • Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket. • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. Check the back seat and around the car before getting in. • Do not leave packages visible in your car windows. Lock them in the trunk or if possible, take them directly home. • If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you are separated from each other. • Select a central meeting place. • Teach kiddos to know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if they need help. • Before surfing the Internet, secure your personal computers by updating your security software. • Keep your personal information private and your password secure. Do not respond to requests to “verify” your password or credit card information unless you initiated the contact. • Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar. • Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the icon of a locked padlock at the bottom of the screen or “https” in the URL address. • Shop with companies you know and trust. December 2013

BIRD HIKES AT SEABOURNE CREEK NATURE PARK RESUMES The Texas Master Naturalist Coastal Prairie Chapter is eager to inform the public of the resumption of their monthly bird hikes, which began Wednesday, November 6th, from 8 - 10 AM. The bird hikes take place the first Wednesday of each month through May. They are led by expert birders in the Chapter and are free and open to the public. Participants, novices and up, should gather in the parking lot to meet their guides and obtain birding lists. Binoculars are strongly recommended. Seabourne Creek Nature Park is located on Hwy 36 next to the Rosenberg Civic Center. JANUARY 9, 2014 HIGHWAY 36A COALITION The Texas Master Naturalist Coastal Prairie Chapter is excited to host Richard Fields, P.E. as the speaker for our January monthly program. In January 2013, three counties came together to form the Highway 36A Coalition, an advocacy group dedicated to developing free-flowing transportation facilities in southern Brazoria, western Fort Bend and Waller Counties. The general route for this corridor begins at Port Freeport and ends at SH 6 north of Hempstead, following existing SH 36 south of Rosenberg. The route is undefined
across western Fort Bend County and follows the “Prairie Parkway” according to the Waller County thoroughfare plan north of IH 10, which crosses the Katy Prairie Conservancy. If you are not aware of the efforts of the Highway 36A Coalition currently we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn what their proposal entails, what their concerns are. This program will take place on Thursday, January 9th, at 7 PM. The meeting will be preceded by a social time and snacks at 6:30 PM and will be held at the Bud O’Shieles Community Center located at 1330 Band Road, Rosenberg, 77471. The meeting is free and open to all interested persons.
