A Day at the Races

Screen Shot 2013-04-23 at 5.33.43 PMThe Temelec County Club is planning a day at the horse races at Golden Gate Fields on June 6 and would like to know who is interested in going.

A special race will be named for the Temelec Country Club

Memorial Neighborhood Bench Refinishing

Temelec has a number of benches along Temelec Circle, and around the Duck Pond that have “memorial” plaques in rememberance of residents who have passed away.    These benches need some refinishing to make to spruce them up and make them more attractive to sit on and highlight the placques. 

We are looking for volunteers to help refinish these neighborhood “Memorial” benches  Don Younghusband, one of our residents, has volunteered to lead the work, and is looking for a few “good” volunteers to assist.  The HOA will supply the refinishing materials.  A work schedule will be held soon to set convenient times for everyone involved.

Please call Julie at 996-1076 to sign up.  We are looking forward to seeing refurbished benches.

Change to Vintage House Focus Groups

This is an update to an earlier post about focus groups being held by Vintage House. The senior center is looking for input from the community to better align its programs with the needs and wants of residents. To this end, there will be a series of focus groups with Valley seniors to explore ideas and opinions.

The revised location for Temelec residents will be a private residence in Creekside Village, 156 Ave Barbera.

The group will be held on Wednesday. March 20th as follows: 5.00 – 6.00 pm for residents 55-70 years old.

For more information on the location of groups for older residents or to make a reservation to attend this group, please contact Jone Gamble at 338-2661.

This is YOUR Website!

Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 7.52.25 AMThe Temelec website is up and running. I am working on adding the directory to the site and setting up a password-protected residents’ section.

This is a site for the community, and everyone who lives in Temelec is encouraged to contribute to its content. Some possible ways you might want to add to the website include:

  • Photos, current and historic.
  • Short articles sharing your memories and experiences of life in Temelec.
  • Announcements of upcoming events and activities.
  • Stories and photos of recent community events.
  • Outreach to other residents if you are looking to form a group.
  • Memorials and obituaries of residents who have left us.
  • Other content you would like to suggest.

If you have ideas for new content you want to include on the website, please contact Francesca Johnson. You don’t need to be a computer whiz and I will add the content to the site for you.
