From Jerry Flannery - CEO and General Manager
Happy April showers everyone! It would be nice to have some more precipitation ahead of the warm summer temperatures and fire season wouldn’t it? We are coming up on the most active part of the year, so first remember to pay your quarterly assessment dues this month and then dust off the bike and lawn chairs and get ready for some outdoor fun!
EVENTS: April is full of fun events for you and the family! The HRCA events team continues to present Virtual programming to give people access to fun, free events like the Winter Cultural Series videos, the UCHealth Series Talks, and Happy Hours. Check the web site for the most up-to-date information on events at HRCAonline.org/Events.
ELECTION RESULTS: Homeowners Jim Allen, John Mackowiak, and Brock Norris ran for the two open Board of Director’s seats at the March 9 Annual Meeting. The Delegates re-elected Jim Allen and Brock Norris for another two-year term. All their service to the community is much appreciated and we look forward to working with the winners.
The Delegate Election for odd and vacant districts is happening this month with a deadline date of April 27. Please take a moment to complete and return the election proxy that was mailed to applicable districts so that we can continue to have homeowner representation at our monthly meetings.
COVID-19 UPDATE: State restrictions are lessening with the continued distribution of the vaccine and other safety protocols in place. As a result, we are now able to resume our pre-COVID opening hours at Northridge. For continued updates like these and reservations for the gyms and pools visit HRCAonline.org/COVID.
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: LARRY W.: Larry is a very familiar face around TR. He began volunteering in 2015 at the suggestion of his daughter, Jaime, who worked in Therapeutic Recreation at the time. Most of his volunteering has been with basketball, but he has also helped with Tri Camp, iCan Bike Camp, Soccer, Sports Camps, and carving pumpkins with our Thrilling Thursdays group around Halloween.
Larry grew up playing a variety of sports; he enjoyed basketball, lacrosse, skiing and golf the most. Larry is originally from Philadelphia, but moved to Colorado in 1973 to attend CSU. He has called Colorado his home for almost 50 years.
Larry has been retired for 5 years, but spent 40+ years in his career in the transportation field with CDOT, and as a consultant.
When asked to share an interesting fact about himself, Larry said he is really enjoying being a grandpa to his 16-month-old granddaughter!
His advice to people thinking about volunteering? "Give it a try, you won't regret it!" Congratulations Larry, you are our volunteer of the month!
