In 2018, both the homeowner association and the golf course, were selected as first by the Reader’s Choice, an award presented by the Arizona Daily Star newspaper. Another award from 2018 was from 55places.com, a website for active adult living, voted SCOV as one of the most affordable places to live. Awards and recognition is well and good, but the real winners are each of you who are a part of this vibrant, healthy community. Thank you, again, for all you do to make SCOV a wonderful place to live.

Programs/Facilities Director - Pam Sarpalius psarpalius@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8077 Winter to Spring As I write this, I have no idea what the weather will be like on April 1. I do know that, soon, many of our winter residents will be returning to their other homes. We wish them safe travels. It is also the time that clubs start to vote on new officers/leaders. Remember to turn in the names of new officers and club rosters to Coco Sullivan. If you no longer want to receive messages for club presidents/leaders, you need to go to the SCOV website and remove your name, using your password.

the Seniors For Kids Club which acts to serve needy children. Both Jack and Sally have been members of the Posse for 17 years, and volunteer for events like the Pancake Breakfast, ILR Samplers and the Great Discussions group. Jack’s volunteerism on the various committees has had a direct impact on the SCOV community by improvements to the Chalk Creek erosion problems, installation of the solar panels, revenue produced by the AT&T cellular lease of the Clock Tower, and the establishment of electronic voting for SCOV elections. Sally helped to revitalize the Government Affairs Committee into a viable resource for the community. Most importantly, Jack and Sally totally support each other on their various committee assignments. Jack and Sally Evert didn’t just win the Distinguished Service Award through 17 years of continuous service; they earned it. Congratulations to Jack and Sally Evert.

Community Services - Katy Mosier Office Hours Mon.-Fri., 9-11 AM, Welcome Center kmosier@suncityorovalley.com 520-917-8058 Landscaping Suggestions If you are one of the residents who escapes our upcoming late spring/summer heat, we really encourage you to consider engaging a landscape maintenance company to attend to your yard during your absence. By doing this, you are being considerate of your neighbors and avoiding any Courtesy Notices sent by the Association. If you are new to our community and have not yet experienced the monsoon season and its ramifications, be aware that weeds, debris and suckers want to take over if not addressed on a consistent basis. Another consideration: if you have not already applied pre-emergent to your property, it is not too late if you make sure to water it in once it is applied. This watering is extremely important to the efficacy of the product. Talk to your landscaper about the different products and their effectiveness in our region. Throughout the year, our office receives many complaints on the condition of landscaping at rental properties. If you depend on a renter to pull weeds, clear yards of fallen plant/ tree debris and cut off any suckers as part of your lease agreement, our experience shows that often a renter does not feel it is a priority. We suggest that you include professional landscaping services as a part of your lease.

Holiday Hours Easter Sunday, April 21 AFC/Pool, 5 AM-5 PM Desert Oasis, 9 AM-4 PM The Views Restaurant, 11 AM-4 PM All Other Facilities Will Be Closed
