We want to bring two important meetings to your attention; you are urged to attend both of the following sessions. The first event is the monthly meeting of the Board of Directors on Thursday, October 13, at 7:00 pm, at the Clubhouse at Rancho Solano. This session is followed one week later by the Annual Homeowners Meeting on Thursday, October 20, 7:00 pm, also at the Clubhouse. The Annual Meeting is an opportunity to hear from the Board, receive updates from the HOA Committees, and ask questions or raise concerns about the community. The newly- appointed Board Directors will also be announced and introduced. The Annual Meeting is followed by snacks and beverages provided by the Homeowners Association.
You may have noticed that the final plantings at the front entrance to Rancho Solano were recently added; these include six strawberry [arbutus marina] trees, three on each side of the entrance. This completes the front entrance project. As with other landscape elements on Rancho Solano Parkway, these trees have now be turned over to the City of Fairfield to maintain; the City's landscape contractor is Dominguez Landscape.
Another upcoming community event is the annual Rancho Solano 5K Fun Run/Walk. In addition to a building a sense of community, this is a charity event in which we encourage all residents to participate. Please see the article in this newsletter for Fun Run details and, for your convenience, a registration form that can be completed and brought to the Park on the morning of the event, Sunday, October 9. We hope you will consider coming out for the Fun Run!
And, last, October is a great month to get the exterior of your home ready for winter rains. Whether this means some new plantings or clearing your gutters, take advantage of the crisp, clear days during the month. Happy Fall!
