  • A 21-Year Tradition-"Powerliners vs. UpTowners"

    By Max Zahn

    On Saturday, March 21st we had our annual Resident’s Cup 27 Hole Golf Tournament here at Deercreek.This event began over 20 years ago and has continued on as one of the FUN tournaments of the year. This year, we had 28 Residents from the Back side of the Natural areas play 28 Residents from the Front side of the Natural areas. Those from the back side of the development are the “Powerliners” and those on the front side are the “UpTowners”.Each team has their own unique logo and each team wore matching shirts with those logos on them (like uniforms). This is a fun tournament and yet, very competitive. Many times over the years, the winning team score comes down to the last two or three 4-somes; and this year it was only won by 3 points on the last 9 Hole Match.

     After the tournament, the players and wives went to Max Zahn and Carson Phillip’s house for the Awards plus a superb dinner of Shrimp  & Grits, Pulled Pork Sliders, Chicken Wings and fabulous Mac &  Cheese all cooked by our Deercreek Chef - Shawn Meeks.

    The highlight of the evening for the 120+ folks there had to be Neil McCormack shooting his world famous Potato Gun!Old friendships were renewed and new ones made in this one-of-a-kind gathering of Deercreek residents.This is just one more thing that makes living in Deercreek so special.

    Ruth Chastain’s Legacy

    Our Deercreek gardens were in glorious bloom last month, and we all appreciated the planning and work of our neighbors as we enjoyed each trip from our own home to Southside Blvd. Unfortunately, few residents see one of the loveliest azalea beds, on the shore of Heather Lake. When the Club Homes were built in the mid 1990’s, houses circled the lake except at the south end, which bordered the nature preserve.

    Ruth Chastain, an avid gardener, moved there in 1995, her house one away from the untidy forest. With the encouragement of neighbors Gil and Nancy Gilroy, Ruth took on the project of clearing and planting the area. She prided herself on spending nothing but her own effort, growing plants from cuttings, and sourcing mulch from the forest to dress the beds. The Gilroys and Mike and Sue Akel, whose properties lie nearest the garden, arranged for water to be made available, and others whose houses border Heather Lake have contributed to the cost of the water. Ruth passed away in 2010, but she is remembered fondly each spring when her azaleas are in bloom. Thank you, Ruth, and thanks to all our Deercreek neighbors whose gardens bring us pleasure every day.

    Gone Girl

    In May the Deercreek Literary circle will be reading Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about marriage gone terribly wrong.Gone Girl's toxic mix of sharp-edged wit with deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River.

    Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife's head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from police and the media, as well as Amy's fiercely doting parent's, the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter-but is he really a killer?

    As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn't do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

    In June, we will be reading ‘The Invention of Wings,’ by Sue Monk Kidd.
    For more information about the Literary Circle contact Mary Louise Selzer at 363-1618 or MLSelzer@comcast.net

  • Access Control: Dwelling Live System & Safety

    By Tommy Walter
    May is the time for end of school and graduation parties. If you will be hosting such a party, please enter all guests into the Dwelling Live system well before the event.That will expedite their getting to your home in time for the festivities. The same would apply for Memorial Day parties.

    As always, with the advent of warmer weather and the May parties, be watchful of those who choose to not be careful about their own safety and the safety of others. Residents still insist on walking or running in traffic on the roads of Deercreek, some even wearing dark clothing! Others insist on riding their bikes side by side, rather than in a single file. Golf carts still ignore stop signs and traffic courtesy. 

  • Installation of Officers/Luncheon: 'Accessories Exchange'

    Tuesday, May 26, 11:30 am

    The Home and Garden Club will be closing out our year with a luncheon and installation of new officers and committee heads on May 26th. It takes many, many willing hands to run this organization and we are blessed to have a group of capable, caring women who have committed their time and talents to this. We hope all of our members will attend this luncheon to say ‘Thank You’ to the outgoing board and welcome the incoming. Please RSVP to Patty Tomka - 363-6086 or pbtomka@hotmail.com by May 22nd so we can plan our meal.
    For fun, we are going to have an ‘Accessories Exchange’. You all have drawers full of pretty things that you don’t wear anymore but are too good to just give away. We’ll have tables set up to display all the things you bring in. Then, at the end of the meeting, you can each take home the same number of things that you brought. Creative recycling! Plan to come for the great food and friendly company, to encourage the new Board – and leave with new stuff!

  • Residents Take Heed!

    Although gated, Deercreek is a restricted access community that provides checks on vehicles entering the premises. It is not a totally secured environment as there are no moats or fences surrounding the entire community. Month after month, year after year, our Board continues to remind residents not to leave valuables in their vehicles and to lock their car doors. And by the way, home, garage and other doors should also be shut and locked.

    Once again, over the last thirty days, some residents have experienced unfortunate thefts. Several of them reported losses from their cars; however, in all cases the cars were not locked and contained laptops, phones, wallets etc. Although two young men were arrested, this does not solve the problem if residents continue to leave valuables in unlocked cars. The Board cannot over emphasize the need to pay heed to the message about securing valuables inside one’s home or garage.

    This brings to mind the question – “Why would you leave your valuables outside, unprotected and in an unlocked vehicle while your other boxes, rakes, shovels, etc. remain locked up in your garage?”
    Let these recent incidents be a reminder of the recent Board request for residents to use their garage space as it was intended ... to store their vehicle (s). While it is understood that some homes only have a two-car garage, if you must leave any vehicles parked in your driveway, please use common sense and keep them locked.

    Take these simple steps to avoid tempting the intruders: Clean out your garages, utilize garages for your cars; if you have more vehicles than your garage space allows, please lock your car when it’s left in the driveway and leave nothing of value visible.
