Happy 248th birthday to the United States Marine Corps! If you're free tonight, WestWinds Marines and supporters of Marines will gather at Raj's from 6-7 p.m. to raise a glass to celebrate! Today is also Veterans Day (observed) - a good opportunity to learn more about the history of the holiday and a reminder of those who serve our country.
There's still time to sign up for gentle yoga this Sunday (11/12) at Raj's. Info and signup sheet here.
Save the date: WestWinds Christmas Party December 3rd, 7-9 pm at Raj's. Details to follow!
Steve McKay's talk last night at Raj's pavilion was well attended and informative!

Several residents alerted me to a message from the Tennis/Fitness center about several break-ins in their parking lot. Apparently the Felony Lane Gang is breaking into cars in search of cash and credit cards. I have no link, but you can click on the screen grab to embiggen it to readable size.
With the holidays coming, please lock your vehicles and do not store valuables inside them. The police have been notified and T&F center staff have put additional security measures in place, but the best insurance is vigilant residents who keep wallets, purses, and other valuables secure.
