In January a contractor was banned from the park for stealing our cans. This summer we had a stealing problem at all the dumpster areas and had to take all the barrels in for about 3 weeks which hurt our Library revenue. Before depositing your cans in the barrels, please open the bag. This would help us when we take the cans to the recycling center. Don’t forget we have Medical Equipment and some loan items. 2013 DIRECTORIES Only 250 were ordered this year. Buy a new one early! Remember owners are dropping their landline phones and you won’t know their cell phone number. This is also our biggest money maker for the Library. Movies and books are expensive so please support us.

I really really really don’t like the March newsletter - - It means we’re at the very bottom of our Events Schedule. It means I’m running out of fun things to tell you about. It means we’re going to be saying “goodbyes” before too long. Nope, not going to go there. Not yet. We still have a fun month ahead of us, so I sure hope all of you will take full advantage of every last minute! As I’m sure you all know, our Annual Meeting is March 2nd at 1 p.m. I KNOW you will all be there. What you might not know is that we’re going to have a Spring Fling Snack Dance with the Good Times Band afterwards. (7 - 10 p.m.) This idea came from some of the Valley owners. They thought it would be fun to be able to socialize with all of you while they were in for the meeting. Then on Monday, March 4th, join your friends at another Leslie Cocktail Party (4 - 6 p.m.). You know the drill on this one - SaaaaaaLUTE! I hope you have been gathering your “stuff” together for the Luau Dinner Dance with FasciNation on Saturday, March 9th (6 - 10 p.m.) This dance is so much fun because you people are so darn creative. That’s why we are giving best table decoration prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. There will also be a “People’s Choice” award. You’re even MORE inspired now, right? Thought so. (Good excuse to go to Progresso or Elizabeth Street - just saying.) Monday, March 18th you will want to come for your last “Leslie Fix” of the season (4 - 6 p.m.) Well, I guess that about wraps it up for this month. Don’t forget to check in at the Activity Center now and then in case there are any changes. Till next month,
