                                        PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

      As we prepare to put 2006 behind us, I think it fitting to reflect for a moment on all of our neighborhood’s
accomplishments during the past year. This year we welcomed the return of our parade, came together in
dramatic fashion to speak with one voice and block another attempt at multi-family housing in our area, and we
celebrated once more our Fall Festival & 5k Run. We are fortunate to have so many active people in our
association. For next year, I want to challenge our association to double, if not triple, the number of active
participants. If you don't usually attend meetings and get involved, make it a point to start. If you are one of the
faithful who is always attending, then bring two of your neighbors. Going into 2007, I am excited about building
on the successes experienced in 2006. All of our neighborhood events should be bigger and better in the
coming year!
      Along with the newsletter, you received a new directory for the neighborhood. In addition to the hard copy
that was delivered, you can go to http://whitelakehills.org/directory/ and download an electronic version.
The version on the website will always be the most current. I want to thank all those block captains who helped
update our list of addresses. I also want to thank Randy Toombs for assisting in the design and formatting of the
directory. Most of all I would like to thank our sponsors who contributed to the production of our directory. I
would encourage all of you to show your appreciation to them the next time you shop.
       On behalf of the White Lake Hills Neighborhood Association, have a Merry Christmas, and may God Bless

are at risk. In at least one case, as little as two dollars was taken. You are encouraged to be
vigilant and report suspicious activity to the police.
