President's Corner

Dear Findlay Creek Community Association Members, 

We are excited to host some events throughout the summer months starting with the Annual Community Clean-up partnered with the Annual E-Waste Drive that's already underway. Following this, we are looking to start planning for a late spring/early summer Community Garage Sale; and much more on the horizon!

We have a special treat for the upcoming Community Clean-up. We have invited two of our T-Rex Friends to help out and entertain us with their best efforts at cleaning. 

We hope to see you all out for the clean-up!
