Board Member Report | Pro Shop | Timbers Restaurant | Activities | Fitness | NW/CP | Web News | Community Standards



Your Board has been at work for almost three months now.  An update on our progress with regard to our Board goals and some other important items is in order:

  • Focus continues on completing the Timbers expansion. From what I have seen as a new member of the expansion team, you are going to really like the finished product.
  • We have now got a team of three Board members together with our Executive Director working on prioritizing the various projects targeted for 2017/18 and beyond. As this work comes to fruition, we will share the results with everyone for their input.
  • As liaison to the Properties committee, I have been asked to pass on a detailed charge to the Properties’ Energy sub-group with regard to what the Board expects to aid us in achieving greater energy efficiencies and reduced utility costs.
  • Finally, the Staff and Properties committee are already working on: improving the Ballroom Audio/Video capabilities, converting the indoor pool to salt water, increasing community street safety and Bocce court improvements.

As time goes on stay tuned for progress updates on these items and more.  If you have any questions or comments on these or other items of interest, please call (772-54630) or e-mail (Raniseski@aol.com) me.

There is still time to enjoy several day tours before the rain arrives, and before you find yourself busy with your many Club & Group activities, holiday parties, etc. Registration remains open for Apple Hill on Friday, October 21, and includes four orchard stops, a hosted lunch and beer tasting at Jack Russell Brewery.  Cost is $62.00 per person; bus departs at 8:45AM.  There are just a few seats left for the Feather Falls day tour scheduled for Tuesday, October 25.  Cost is $28.00 person; bus departs at 8:30AM for a five hour stay.

This year we purchased a season subscription for the Broadway Sacramento Series.  A season subscription allows us better seating choices, and carries over for priority scheduling the next year.  I had an overwhelming response for interest in all performances.  We have eleven tickets left for the Sound of Music performance on October 31. Grab a friend and come see this three-time Tony Award winner!  Tickets are $85.00 per person; bus departs at 12:30PM.

Take advantage of the November tours as we provide a variety of activities! Please refer to the October Village Courier to view the scheduled trips.  Tuesday, November 8 we will visit the new Golden 1 Center as the Sacramento Kings take on the New Orleans Pelicans.  At this time, there are only four seats left!  Cost is $120.00 per person; bus departs at 4:30PM.  I do not anticipate purchasing game tickets on a regular basis, but do have one additional date on the calendar for a game – April 4, 2017. Look for information in the March 2017 Courier.

luzia_smallWe opened registration early for the January 8, 2017 Cirque du Soleil-LUZIA performance under the Big Top at A T & T Park in San Francisco.  The first bus is sold out! We added a second bus that is filling quickly.  Tickets are $135.00 per person. Why not purchase tickets as a holiday gift for your spouse, or a friend?

We tend to slow down a bit during the holidays, but have several holiday events scheduled, including Beach Blanket Babylon Holiday Extravaganza in San Francisco, Global Winter Wonderland in Sacramento, the Singing Christmas Tree at the Capitol Christian Center, a tour of the new Carnegie Museum in Roseville decorated for the holidays, and Cornish Christmas.  Please refer to the “Mark Your Calendar” sheet located in the Timber Creek Lodge lobby for tour dates and registration dates.

Registration is currently open for the December 1-2, 2016 Reno Overnight with a dinner buffet and holiday performance of “Miracle on 34th Street” at the Eldorado Hotel & Casino with only 3 seats available.  Registration is open for the January 16-22, 2017 Solvang to Palm Springs, CA Tour, and registration for the Snow Train Tours (Feb. 15-17 & Feb. 21-23, 2017) will open Friday, November 4.

We have plenty to help you enjoy the Sun City Lifestyle – come along and join us!

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH / CITIZENS PATROLCollection of colorful pillsDrug Take Back Event

Saturday  |  October 22nd  |  New Time – 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

It’s that time again—The Roseville Police Department, in cooperation with federal and state agencies, is offering this free service, which allows you to conveniently dispose of any medicines or drugs for which you no longer have need.

The location for the service will be the parking area along the tennis, pickleball and basketball courts, at the north end of the main lodge parking lot.  Look for the squad car.

Accepted are any prescription or non-prescription medicines, controlled substances, or veterinary medication.  They prefer that you pool all the pills and capsules into a zip-lock bag, but it is not required; a paper bag full of pill bottles will suffice.  Liquids should be left in their original bottles.  However, they cannot accept hypodermic needles, medical waste, aerosols, hydrogen peroxide, or illegal street drugs.

The benefits and purpose of this program:

  • Young children all too often ingest meds accidently, which they find in the medicine cabinets of various family members
  • Nearly every thief is either a drug addict or knows several, so it helps to advertise that Sun City gets rid of what knuckleheads want
  • It helps prevent seniors from confusing which is the right or wrong medication, which can happen when quantities of expired or no-longer prescribed medicines pile up
  • Teenagers all too often abuse meds, which they can “appropriate” from the medicine cabinets of various family members
  • Medicines which are flushed down the toilet, or dumped in the trash, end up contaminating our water supplies, wildlife, and folks handling our refuse

Let people elsewhere in western Placer County know of these additional locations during the same time slot:  Del Oro, Granite Bay, Whitney and Roseville High Schools, Lincoln Police Department, Sierra College, Auburn City Hall, Dewitt Justice Center in Auburn, and Kaiser Hospital on Rocky Ridge Road.

Contractor / Service Referral

Have you recently had work done at your home?  Now take a minute to assess the situation.   Was the project completed on time and were you satisfied with the work performed?  If so, and you would like to recommend the person and/or business who provided the service to you, please stop by the Administration Office and fill out a referral recommendation form.

Once completed, these forms are available to view on our website and hard copies may be found in the referral binder which is available at the monitor’s desk for review by residents.  The intent of these referral forms is to assist other homeowners looking for similar services to be performed at their homes.

The Community Association staff does not refer or personally endorse any of the businesses listed for review. The information contained within the service referral binder is information provided solely by our homeowners who have utilized the services.  Referrals are available to review for one year after the date submitted and are then removed to ensure only current referrals are offered.

If you have had an unpleasant experience with a business or person did you know you may also fill out a form and that too is made available for review.  It is an effective way to gain exposure and to share your displeasure about a business or person instead of littering the community with negative signage which causes visual blight and detracts from the overall beauty of our community.

Should we receive three (3) negative reviews from concerned homeowners regarding a business or person currently in the referral binder that business and/or person’s referral sheet will be promptly removed.

The referral program has proven to be a great asset to our community members therefore, we strongly encourage that you take the time to utilize this service and share your experience with your fellow homeowners both positive and negative.
