Thank you to everyone who helped install the holiday lights around the community. All of the lights look amazing. Check out more holiday photos! Also, we are collecting used and broken lights again this year for recycling. There is a collection box at the pool.
The Raintree 2022 pool passes will be available after the Annual Meeting on Monday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. Homeowners must bring ID and sign for them. If you are unable to attend the Annual Meeting, additional pickup dates and times will be announced at a later date. Be sure to subscribe to Raintree emails if you haven’t already to receive these updates.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Raintree Board Meeting scheduled for Monday, November 8th at 7 p.m. will be a ZOOM meeting only. After the bad experience last month, we spent a couple of hours attempting to set up a live meeting with Zoom, but were unsuccessful. We hope to get this working for future meetings. Again, this meeting will be a ZOOM meeting only, no in-person meeting.
To attend the November 8th Board Meeting via Zoom:

It’s that time of the year! We will be installing our holiday decorations around Raintree on Friday, November 26th at 9 a.m. Please meet at the pool to volunteer. If anyone has any unused lights or decorations to donate, feel free to bring them for possible use.
Lightning hit Raintree this week and it killed the large Canary Palm at the main entrance. Such a beautiful tree, it is truly a loss! The Board will discuss next steps on what to do for that space at a future Board meeting since the tree is not salvageable.
In addition to the tree, it took out many lights (some brand new) around the community.
The Landscape Committee has been very busy, getting together often, choosing and planting many varieties of flowers and bushes around Raintree. With the advice of the landscapers and the Landscape Committee’s approval, two sets of homeowners on Cottage Grove invested in updates to improve the entryway appearance of their units at their own expense. Please note that as of now, there will be a moratorium on any and all planting on common areas until the fall so the Board can come up with new, updated guidelines.
Sod was also replaced in the front between Buildings 10 and 16.

With Covid-19 affecting us this year, some of our snow birds have chosen not to come down. This makes knowing who to contact when there is a problem within a unit very important. We already had smoke alarm batteries die and roof leaks occur, both of which meant Maintenance needed access to the unit to make repairs.
For this reason, we need a record of who to contact locally for a key to a unit, or either a friend or company looking after a unit. Emergency contact information, the name and phone number of a local person who has a key, should be sent to Randy Moreland at Phantom3mb@aol.com or to Katie Wilkerson (Vista Management) at Kwilkerson@vistacamfl.com.
