Friendly Reminders

Respect your fellow residents

Submitted by Jim Romine, Executive Director, [email protected]


We certainly live in a contentious world these days and anything we can personally do to keep peace in our community, goes a long way. Please be aware that some of your fellow residents may not appreciate your t-shirts, hats or other clothing items that contain nasty slogans, curse words or images. Some residents may be offended by them or worse, wearing such could cause an unnecessary fight. 


So, please remember that while you may love to wear such items, remember your audience, and please try to stick with respectful items that won’t be hurtful to your fellow residents. Thank you in advance for your consideration of this Friendly Reminder.
