We have noticed that with every new year we welcome, we see more and more Christmas lights.

VIN Etching Event Postponed
Submitted by Jennifer Vickers, Security Committee
Bitterly cold weather on November 14 may have thwarted TMCC plans for our 2018 VIN Etching auto theft prevention event, but it didn't cool the spirits of Timbergrove residents who gathered at Cactus Cove for a neighborhood social instead. But don't worry! Due to overwhelming interest - the 22 vehicle slots were reserved within hours of our email announcement - the Security Committee is organizing several VIN etching events in the new year. Look for an update on the next date in the March edition of The Timbergram.
Annual Snow Fest Washed Out
Submitted by Tim Louque
We watched the weather forecasts for a week, hoping for a more hopeful outlook for the weekend of December 8, 2018. But the forecast didn’t change. It appeared that SnowFest 2018 would be a literal washout with flooding rain all weekend. TMCC “called it” Thursday night and the festival was canceled. So, we turn our thoughts and minds to 2019! See you next year.
