As we bring 2017 to a close with our final issue of the year, we have a lot to cover. First, our cover feature this issue, Warren and Lettie Goehringer, share how their paths brought them back to the area where they have found an overwhelmingly welcoming group of people in Cordillera Ranch. It’s one of the most frequent messages you’ll hear from new residents after they have settled into the community, “If you aren’t doing anything, it’s your own fault. There are so many activities.” As if the Goehringers aren’t busy enough enjoying the community amenities, they’ve got a trip planned this fall that will make even the adventurous give pause — read the full article to learn more.
The Cordillera Ranch POA also has some exciting news to share about modifications to the community’s access control system aimed at tightening access to the community and enhancing our sense of privacy. The POA staff, development team and new POA General Manager, Mark Risner, have spent many months researching and planning this endeavor and we all look forward to the improvements over the coming months. Mark’s article in this issue is the first of several updates and communications that will be forthcoming as this process is rolled out, so be on the lookout for future updates.
Lastly, as we enter this season of giving, it’s with great pride that we share a story about how Brianna Botine, the Clubs Member Relations Coordinator, took the bull by the horns and spurred an online donation campaign to benefit the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Her efforts, supported by the outpouring of giving by this community are great reminders of what collective efforts can do in an era when too much spotlight is often focused on the negatives in our society and politics. Thank you to all who helped the #CordilleraCares Campaign ultimately exceed its goal by more than four times over!
We hope you enjoy this issue of Cordillera Ranch Living, and we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
