VDO Members, please be alert to the following – ALL have happened before and will undoubtedly happen again:

There have been bear sightings along the wash paralleling 3 Canyons Rd. (to the South, coming out of Hunter Canyon). Every few years we have some renegade trash bin raiding, so please keep your full trash bins “IN” until your trash pickup day.

Multiple undocumented northbound travelers who choose not to enter via the ports of entry have been detained and re-routed by Border Patrol in the last two weeks, both in the Hunter Canyon area as well as along 3 Canyons Rd.

Lastly – If you are in the habit of leaving your garage door open, be aware that certain legless fanged creatures may enjoy the shady cool cave-like features of your garage. (Don’t ask me how I personally know this.)

Thanks, and please keep your eyes out for you and your neighbors.

Lynn Mattingly
VDO President

 

The Huffs are moving back to Iowa and have LOTS and LOTS of goodies that won’t be joining them on the journey.

They’ve contracted with a company to host an estate sale and this provides TWO opportunities for HOA Members:

1. Attend the sale and scoop up some treasures!

2. Host a garage sale yourself that weekend and piggyback off Cactus Estate Sale’s advertising and attendance. If you go that route, REMEMBER to place signage at the 3 Canyons Gate and/or down here at our own VDO entrance. That way, folks attending the Cactus/Huff event will also know of your sale.

Friday, September 4 and Saturday, September 5
8:00 am to 1:00 pm ONLY
(No Early Birds Please)
5810 E. Silver Leaf Court

Huff items include: furniture (couch set, dining room table set with hutch, bedroom set, trundle bed, large entertainment center, custom built wall bed, and office center), kitchen items, holiday decorations, bedding, office supplies, clothes, and MORE!

The Huffs will receive a temporary gate code that Cactus will advertise and that Jane and Ray can share with you several days before the sale weekend. (huffrayjane at gmail dot com)

 

 

Just a friendly reminder that although we all care about wild animals, we’re not helping them, or ourselves, by leaving food scraps outside to feed them.

Fruit, melon rinds, treats, and leftovers are a sure magnet for raccoons, javelina, fox, coyotes, etc. and these species are potentially dangerous, not only to yourself, but to the community and its pets.

Many now carry rabies and Cochise County warns us that rabies can be transmitted from wild animals to pets, and then to humans.

So please dispose of food properly … in your mouth or in your garbage can!
