Message from the President - May 2022



We honor two incredibly special groups of people this month: our mothers and our fallen veterans.

On Sunday, May 8th, please tell your mother how much you love and appreciate her (even if she is not physically here). On Monday, May 30th, pay tribute and remembrance to military personnel who have given the ultimate sacrifice, while also thanking those who are still with us.


NEWS FOR THIS MONTH

In this issue, we have the honor of recognizing military veterans who live in our community. Although Memorial Day is a day to remember those we have lost, we feel it important to thank those who are still with us. Time is precious, as are these fine individuals. Thank you for your service…thank you for being our neighbors.


Recent town events have been going extremely well: The annual Sikh Diversity Run netted $10,000 which will go towards the Town of SWR Scholarship Fund; the weekly Farmers’ Market has been an immense success and attraction; the ROCA Easter Egg Hunt put a smile on many families’ faces and gave their children a beautiful morning; our Party in the Park Part II was an enormous success! Thank you SRHOA board members…you made this happen…you are amazing, giving individuals whom I appreciate immensely.
