Friendly Reminders
Submitted by Jim Romine,
Executive Director, jim.romine@sctexas.org
Here are a few reminders for all of us. Please be safe and take good care!

  • Please remember, you cannot drive your golf cart on the sidewalks. The only location off Sun City golf courses to drive on a pathway is between Sun City Blvd. and N-59.
 
  • When walking your pet, please remember to keep them on a leash and please do not cut through neighbor’s yards when out and about!
 
  • Please remember to remove your political signs in accordance with our rules. You can recycle your political signs at the collection truck or trailer placed in the Legacy Hills Park Pavilion and the Cowan Creek Amenity Center parking lots.
'Tis the season to beware of those scam artists who are definitely on the naughty list!
 
During the holidays we would like to remind residents to be diligent and double check all information before sending money, gift cards or gifts. While new scams pop up every day, criminals are especially busy this time of year.
           
Every year seniors send thousands of dollars assuming they are helping their grandchildren out of an emergency situation. An example of one such scam involves a call from a “lawyer” or “court official” asking for bail money for a grandchild. Be very careful when receiving items in the mail and before sending any money or signing up for something, check it out.
 
Please click here to visit the Georgetown Police Department’s Crime Prevention & Safety Tips page to arm yourself with information about scams and how to report fraud. 
Request for Submission: First Crush
No matter how old you get, you never forget your first crush. For the upcoming February issue, Sun Rays wants to know: who was your first crush? Was it the kid next door? The class clown? An older sibling’s best friend? Robert Redford? (Of course it was Robert Redford.) What did you like about them? Did they know how you felt? Sweet or silly, romantic or regrettable, please send your first crush story (300 words or less, please) to jaime.calder@sctexas.org by Friday, Dec. 18 for consideration. Photographs are highly encouraged. For questions or assistance, please contact Jaime Calder at 512-948-7745.

Experience Lights on the Georgetown Square
 
Celebrate this holiday season in Georgetown with twinkling lights, local shopping and dining plus music around the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas.
