STARLIGHT MESA NEWS  -  MARCH 2010
 
Spring is in full bloom!  Take a walk (or drive) down Starlane and admire the flowers on the slope - they've taken off!  The rain really helped.
 
The pool will soon be open.  I will let you know as soon as it is ready for your first dip of 2010.  
 
We have noticed that someone has been throwing rocks and dirt into the pool.  Pool rules are given below.   Please note the five items that incur a fine.
 
A reminder:  if you invite more than six non-Mesa residents to the pool or tennis area, you must fill out the Party Application form.   We will not accept reservations from two groups at the same time, so book early!

Our gardeners will not service any front lawn where owners have not cleaned up - whether it's from your dog or not.  To those walkers who have been cleaning up after their own dog (as well as other dogs) on Mesa common property - thank you.
