2013 has been a very busy year at StillWaters. The StillWaters Residential Association board of directors, staff and committee members have worked hard this past year to maintain and improve the amenities of StillWaters. SWRA strives to make the StillWaters community the best place to live on Lake Martin and in the country.
Help us keep improving StillWaters by joining a committee and getting involved. SWRA has several committees that require different talents and experience. Contact the SWRA office to join a committee for 2014.
Invoices for the 2014 annual association fees will be mailed the last week in December. The association fees are due January 1st and past due after January 31, 2014. Failure to receive an invoice is not an acceptable reason for not paying your association fees.
SWRA is constantly working to reduce association cost and maximize the annual budget to make sure the amenities of StillWaters are maintained and improved. To help reduce employee cost, SWRA has contracted with Twin City Security to provide a security guard that will operate the Hwy 49 entrance gate from 10pm to 6am seven days a week. Twin City Security is a licensed security company that provides security guards for several industries and other gated communities in Alabama. This agreement with Twin City Security will save SWRA thousands of dollars in employee cost for 2014.
Christmas is almost here! When my children were growing up they could not wait until December. Like most children they loved to open presents on Christmas morning but they also enjoy all the festivities that went on during the Christmas season. They got to travel to the Grandparents for presents and cookies, go to Christmas parties, participate in the Church Christmas program and enjoy the many blessing our family received. One thing we always tried to instill in our children is that Christmas is not just for having fun but celebrating the birth of my savior, Jesus Christ.
We also tried to make sure our children understood the importance of helping families that were not as fortunate as our family. Each year we purchased gifts for needy families and during those Christmases that we did not have as much money to spend, we always made sure we volunteered at our Church or other charitable organizations. This Christmas remember the true meaning of the day and help those who are less fortunate. Very few of us have any extra money during Christmas but we can give our time to volunteer organizations or help a neighbor around their house. The Christmas season is a time of giving, not just gifts but of ourselves.
