Holiday Decorating 2016 and other odds & ends…

We’ve gotten a little behind with the website of late, so here are a few updates from Q4 2016:

  3. Trustees: we could use a couple of new Trustees to help with CHCA deliveries to a set of 15-20 homes. Responsibilities are basically to deliver the CHCA Courier about 4x per year, conduct the membership drive in the spring, and distribute the luminaria in December. This can be a great way to help the neighborhood; it would also count for CH service hours for any high school students who might eventually apply for a CHCA scholarship! Please contact President Ken Paul (

Here’s to a great start to 2017!
