Here’s wishing the New Year brings you all Health, Happiness and Prosperity! The holiday party was a success, many thanks to all those who assisted and especially to our social chair Charlene Casillas. We gathered quite a lot of food for the Capital Area Food Bank, thank you for all the generous donations. We have our bids for a 20 year infrastructure study to review the condition of physical assets in the community such as the clubhouse, pool, walls and roads. We awarded a contract for the study at our meeting in December and hope the engineering firm will have it complete by end of January. The 2015 CMHOA Annual Meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at the Association Clubhouse, 6007 Mount Bonnell Road. You will receive information by mail regarding the Agenda, nominees running for the CMHOA Board of Directors, 2014 Draft Annual Meeting Minutes, and the official ballot and proxy. Please take a moment to review these materials and exercise your privilege as a homeowner to vote. Your attendance at the Annual Meeting is very important. If you cannot attend, please be sure to fill out the Proxy section of the ballot and drop it off at the clubhouse or mail it to the office in the stamped envelope provided prior to the meeting.

I would like to thank everyone who came out to join us at the Annual HOA Holiday Party last month. The turnout was exceptional and everyone really enjoyed meeting new faces in the neighborhood and spending time socializing with all our Cat Mountain Neighbors. The party would not have been so successful without the help of the following volunteers: Our fabulous planning committee, chefs/cooks: Dwight Granger, Bryan Harter, Gaye Chargualaf, Charlene Casillas, Lisa Castillo, Gail Dully, Debbie Pollock and Lee & Carol Blanchard Our amazing decorating committee: Jesse Chargualaf, Dr. Angie Clark & John Wolf Our secret elves: Judy & Larry Eichenbaum for lending us their fire pit, Faye Van Haren for running our last minute errands & Marc Dully for always being there to help us any way he can! A special THANK YOU to our HOA President, Bryan Harter for helping plan, shop & execute the entire party….. And of course our fabulous trio “The Hill Country Harmonizers” led by new HOA resident Elise Bright which brought a special touch to our celebration! Lastly, thank you to everyone who stayed late to help us clean up afterwards! It is because of neighbors like you that we are able to host such successful, enjoyable events and we appreciate and thank you all for your participation and dedication to our neighborhood. We would also like to say thank you to everyone who brought non-perishable goods as we were able to fill two entire donations boxes and deliver them to the Capital Area Food Bank just in time for holidays!

CAT MOUNTAIN VIEW (Wine Club - Continued from Page 3) The wine club would like to thank Dick Oppenheimer, David & Delia Adams, Richard Schley & Ronnie Gerry, Lisa Castillo & Fay Van Haren and Jeff Howdeshell & Courtney Barry, who all either opened their homes or hosted a fabulous social at the clubhouse in 2014. We appreciate your enthusiasm in coming up with themes and helping keep the club thriving for yet another year! As in years past, the wine club will be on hiatus during the holiday months but will kick off again in 2015! Please look to our upcoming newsletters for more information on future dates. If anyone in the neighborhood is interested in hosting an upcoming wine club social please contact Char Casillas at the email below. “Hosting” consists of coming up with a date, time & location and each social is a casual gathering where neighbors are asked to bring an appetizer or dessert to share along with a bottle of wine corresponding with a theme chosen by the host. Wine Club Socials can either be held at a home of a resident or at the club house and are always an evening of great conversation with great friends. If you are interested in joining us at our next Wine Club social or would like more information on hosting please email Charlene Casillas at [email protected] for more information. Cheers!

BOOK CLUB Join us for the next Cat Mountain Book Club Discussion on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at 6:30 PM, Cat Mountain Club house where we will be discussing the book Touchstone by Laurie R. King. Hailed for her rich and powerful works of psychological suspense as well as her New York Times bestselling mysteries, Laurie R. King now takes us to a remote cottage in Cornwall where a gripping tale of intrigue, terrorism, and explosive passions begins with a visit to a recluse upon whom the fate of an entire nation may rest—a man code-named . . . Its eight years after the Great War shattered Bennett Grey’s life, leaving him with an excruciating sensitivity to the potential of human violence, and making social contact all but impossible. Once studied by British intelligence for his unique abilities, Grey has withdrawn from a rapidly changing world—until an American Bureau of Investigation agent comes to investigate for himself Grey’s potential as a weapon in a vicious new kind of warfare.

CAT MOUNTAIN VIEW (Continued from Page 4) Stuyvesant desperately needs Grey’s help entering a world where the rich and the radical exist side by side—a heady mix of the powerful and the celebrated, among whom lurks an enemy ready to strike a deadly blow at democracy on both sides of the Atlantic. Here, among a titled family whose servants dress in whimsical costumes and whose daughter conducts an open affair with a man who wants to bring down the government, Stuyvesant finds himself dangerously seduced by one woman and—even more dangerously— falling in love with another. And as he sifts through secrets divulged and kept, he uncovers the target of a horrifying conspiracy, and wonders if he can trust his touchstone, Grey, to reveal the most dangerous player of all …. Building to an astounding climax on an ancient English estate, Touchstone is both a harrowing thriller by a master of the genre and a thought-provoking exploration of the forces that drive history—and human destinies.
