CRESTON BULLETIN JUNE 2014
Creston’s Annual Meeting
We will have our annual meeting on June 11 at 22181 Alderney Ct. in thebackyard at 7 p.m.. This will be an opportunity for you to meet your new officers, bring up any concerns you might have. Refreshments will be provided.
Check out our website:www.Creston-CA.org.
We have recommendations for a number of things ranging from contractors, gardeners, photographers, plumbers, etc.
We are adding a reading consultant who lives near the end of Creston. Lynne Hanson has been teaching/tutoring reading for decades with great success. You can view her contact information at
Also in the world of academia, we also have a long time Creston resident, Genevieve Deppong who tutors math. You can contact her at 408-738-0990. She taught middle school science and math.
Creston E-Mails If you are not getting our e-mails, let Pat Musachia know at email@example.com and she will add you to our distribution. The advantages of getting them are notices of meetings, lost/found animals, wildlife sightings, sheriff reports and many other items of interest to the neighbors that can’t wait for a newsletter.
Rotating Dinner Party?
Are you interested in getting to know your neighbors and eating good food? How about a Rotating Dinner Party? Homes would volunteer to host a main dish, dessert, appetizers, drinks, etc. Neighbors would walk house to house (maybe for 20 min. per house) and get to know one another while enjoying the food. Please let Lesley know if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
Emergency Professionals emphasize that citizen training for emergencies is important. Because of our low levels of crime locally, then police and fire are very lightly staffed for emergencies. We are being told that we could be "on your own" for hours or even days after the event you never thought could happen.
Our V.Pres. Jack Truher has been attending training sessions, given by the Los Altos Community Foundation. Six or eight sessions of three hours each cover the basics for interacting with first responders: police, fire, county, FEMA and medical. Neighborhood Watch is covered in one of the sessions. Emergencies only happen when they happen to you. Teenages may also be eligible. Anyone from Crestion who is interested can contact:
Many thanks to our Section Captains, who are your nearby neighbor Facilitators and Points of Contact for any concerns that might compromise your family's personal security at home. There are different approaches to these issues. Many cheers for those who are continuing with this important service. Our roughly 130 home are sectioned into increments of a dozen or more homes each. Only about 2/3rd of homes have Captains. Jack Truher is trying to cover for the homes without Captains. He could use some help.
If you still have not paid your dues, please do. Pat (22180 Alderney Ct.) still has a box at her door or Kitty Wilson at 22433 Ainsworth. It’s a nominal $10. This maintains our association as a legal domestic nonprofit organization. Or you can give your dues to our treasurer, Al Holstein at 10570 Creston. Please make your check out to the Creston Improvement Association.
