The Super Bowl will be shown on the clubhouse TV’s on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at approximately 3:20 p.m. You may take this opportunity to bring your snacks down to the clubhouse and enjoy other fellow football fans and watch the BIG game on the TV’s in the clubhouse together!
This year's ceremonies began at 11:00 am, Saturday morning, November 3, 2018, at the Sunnymead Ranch Veteran’s Garden of Honor, located on the Clubhouse grounds, and was lead by committee member, Robert Riddick.
It was commenced with the procession of the Canyon Springs High School Color Guard, which was preceded in formation, by bagpiper Ms. Christine Orcholski. Once the Colors had been presented by the ROTC members, and the flag ceremoniously raised at the flagpole, the audience was asked to join in reciting the traditional Pledge Allegiance to the Flag. Bagpiper Orcholski then played the first of several selections for the audience, and was followed by the introducing of all guests and members of the Board and Committee, as well as Special Guests that included veterans and family-members of veterans who live in Sunnymead Ranch.
This year's speech that was based upon what the true significance and dedication of Veterans Day was, as defined by the U.S. Congress, and at the direction of the office of the President of the United States of America. It was both an enlightening as well as informative presentation, given by Robert Riddick.
The ceremonies also included a drill-team exhibition that was performed by members of the ROTC Drill Team.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies, attendees and performers adjourned to the Clubhouse veranda area to enjoy refreshments, and to share their own individual thoughts about the Veterans Day occasion.
The Veterans Committee wants to extend their Thanks to all of the residents who took the time to join with us in recognizing the many Veterans who live here in Sunnymead Ranch, and once again we say
“Thank You for your service to your Country”.....

On behalf of the Board of Directors and especially the Activities Committee, we wanted to say “Thank You”, to all of the parents who brought their kids out to celebrate Halloween Carnival for the kids here in Sunnymead Ranch last month.
We tried something a little different this year, and laid the event out as a Carnival for the kids, and by all accounts, it looks like it was an overwhelming success. We also had a huge number of kids, as well as Mommies and Daddies that showed up (to our delight of course). And, it looks like we'll fine-tune the same concept in conducting it next year as well.
The kids were GREAT! Especially with their outrageous and creative costumes and masks, and the parents were just as enthusiastic as the kids.
The games went on, winners were awarded prizes in each of the categories, and everyone had fun. We even had food left over afterwards, but don't worry, the committee-members made sure that it was all gone before the end of the day.
Check out some of the pictures elsewhere in this issue, and again, we want to say “Thank You” to all the parents and kids who were a part of our Halloween fun day.

Hello Sunnymead Ranch residents.
We hope each and every one of you had a great Thanksgiving last month, and were able to enjoy it with family and friends. And with that holiday now over, we're now in “count-down” mode for wrapping up the year 2018, and getting ready to welcome in 2019. And for those who “survived” both Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping adventures, we can only wish that you shopped wisely. It's still hard to believe that Christmas is less than 25 days away.
That being said, we just wanted to remind everyone again to be safe during the remainder of the Holidays, and we hope you enjoy them to the fullest.
And, we still have one more social event scheduled to take place between now and the start of 2019, along with an important Association event that we reminded you of in last month's issue.
The social event is our annual New Year's Eve party, scheduled to take place on the evening of December 31, 2018, and starting at 9 pm. We expect to have the usual great turnout in participation. More detailed info about them is included in another area of this issue, so be sure to check it out.
The Association-related event mentioned above has to do with our annual Election of Board Members. At our last Open Forum, the Board established Dec. 14, 2018 as the last day to file for running for a seat on our Board. Because we didn't have an election in 2018, due to a lack of satisfying quorum, all five Board seats will be up for election in the 2019 election. So, keep in mind that Dec. 14, 2018 is the last day to file to run.
December 14, 2018 was selected as the Date-of-Record, in order to receive a ballot to vote in the upcoming election, which simply means that to be included as a participant in the election, you must have purchased your Sunnymead Ranch home on or before Dec. 14, 2018.
It's also important to note that for those interested in running for the Board to be sure that you review the qualifications for running for a seat on the Board, by reading the current Election Rules located on our website, www.mysunnymead.com.
The Board also approved that the ballots for the upcoming election will be mailed out on or about January 11, 2019, and our Annual Members Meeting is scheduled to take place on February 13, 2019, and starting at 6 pm.
For more info regarding our elections, please visit our website (address above). And, if you still have questions regarding the process, just call the office and they will be glad to answer them for you.
In the meantime, this month's Message will be intentionally short again. So, for now, we'll end with a warm wish that all of our residents here enjoy spending and celebrating the rest of the Holiday Season with family and friends, and we'll catch up with you next year.
Okay, that's it for this issue. As always in closing, we want to say again that we, the entire Board of Directors, appreciate your continued support, and look for your suggestions on how we can improve the quality-of-life for all of us who call Sunnymead Ranch our home. Take Care, and
Robert Riddick, President
Sunnymead Ranch Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is considering the creation of a new ad-hoc committee. The new committee will be tasked with developing an educational and informational document that will describe the processes used by the Association in evaluating and, when necessary, citing those residential landscaping issues that are in violation of the Associations CC&Rs. In addition, the committee would be tasked with also including describing what the options are for residents to respond back to the Association, once they've been sited for a landscaping violation.
The issue of what landscaping issues are cited as being in violation, and which are not, has long been an issue of misunderstanding and misconceptions among many of our residents. In an effort to minimize those concerns and in the process, better explain exactly what those processes are, the Board is considering tasking a small group of residents to be a part of the ad-hoc committee, and help develop an easy-to-understand, yet comprehensive, written guide that explains clearly what the criteria for residential landscaping being cited as being in violation actually are, as well as what the options are for how residents are able to respond, once violations are issued.
The Board is looking for individuals who have the time and the commitment to work in a committee-setting, with other like-minded residents, who are also willing to take on the task of developing the intended guide that the Board envisions as being the end-result of the committee's work.
If you are interested in being considered for an opportunity to serve on this ad-hoc committee, please let Ms. Betty Roth, our General Manager, know so, by calling her at the Clubhouse office. The Board is looking for a committee made up no more than five individuals, and that committee will report directly to the Board of Directors. For more information, please contact Ms. Roth at (951) 924-2249.

New Year's Eve 2018 Celebration
Sunnymead Ranch Clubhouse
It's coming......... – and, we're less than two months from the evening of December 31st. That's when we’re having our 2018 New Year’s Eve Celebration, and yes, You’re INVITED!!!!! The Activities Committee is working hard and putting its heart and soul into putting together one of the grandest traditions of Sunnymead Ranch; our New Year’s Eve event..
And, the party we’ve got planned for you will be not only fun, but well-worth the very affordable price. First, you’ll be greeted and seated at your reserved table by our warm and friendly hosts. No confusion about table location, but the earlier you purchase your tickets, the sooner you lock-in your seating. Next, you’ll be treated to plenty of food-goodies while the party gets started. Then, you’ll relax and enjoy our entertainment for the evening.....
And yes, there will be dancing all night, as we work our way to the ‘Midnight Hour’... And, this year we're going to offer up something different in the way of food-goodies. By popular demand, we'll be serving up delicious buffet-style hor d'ourves and other munchable and delicious fare. We learned from last year's event, that by changing up the food portion of the night's happenings, we can drop the ticket-costs substantially, and make it much more affordable for all those who want to celebrate with us. And, don't worry, we WON'T run out of food, and we'll still be topping the night off with complimentary champagne, as well as all the horns, hats, whistles, and merry-making doo-dads that every respectable New Year’s Eve party should have. And we can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than that!!! And, you only have to drive as far as your own Clubhouse!!!!
All this for an unbelievable ticket-price of $25.00 per person!!! And, to assure the quality of the event, we’re limiting total tickets available to 120 tickets. And, no pre-sales, so that everyone has an equal opportunity to purchase tickets as soon as they go on-sale. When is that? They will go on sale starting Monday, November 5, 2018. Where? At the Clubhouse, of course.
For those who missed celebrating New Year’s Eve last year here at the Clubhouse, “Welcome Back”!! Mark your calendar for this years biggest party. Remember, tickets will be available starting Nov. 18, and we will be partying from 9 pm December 31, 2018 until 12:30 am, January 1, 2019... And tickets are a measly $25.00 a piece!!! You don’t want to miss this one, people, believe me!!!
