The board met Sept. 18 (3rd Tuesday )at 6:30. Homeowners present were Chris Whitaker, Rob and Kay Luce . Joan Glynn was also present to present preliminary landscape plans for the three DRNA areas ( not the entrances which are controlled by the master). Homeowner comments: issues involved with Needles Park were discussed from 2 perspectives. A petition for a playscape was submitted from 11 neighbors.Hidden park playscape was brought up but deferred to the master since this is not a DRNA responsibility Security: Please continue to call 911 in emergencies and 311 for non emergencies. The constables mentioned calling 911 if you are concerned about any issue vs 311. That way if they are near the neighborhood they can respond quickly.

It is often very awkward to approach your neighbor about a dog running around frightening children or annoying you by barking in an outside kennel or music blaring by the pool. So let your anonymous call to the Austin Police Department handle the problem. DIAL #311 Please be considerate of your neighbors. Not everyone loves dogs or your music. These wide open spaces we all love carry music and noise very well.

Davenport Ranch Looking for Bunko Players



2 cups flour 1 C oleo ½ pt. sour cream or half & half

Davenport ladies, would you like an occasional night out? Why not be a substitute for our bunko group? We play once a month (usually the first Friday night of the month) at a member's home here in Davenport and are always looking for substitutes to join us. If you are interested in going on our sub list or need more information, please send me your email and phone contact information (Kaye Kelley [email protected]) When a regular member can't make it, they'll give you a call to see if you're available. This doesn't obligate you to play and, as a sub, you'll never have to host! It's also a nice way to meet your neighbors.

Struedel

canned apple pie filling 1 C powdered sugar slivered almonds (optional)

Cut oleo into flour, stir in sour cream. Refrigerate overnight. Cut in half; roll each half out to a 16x10” rectangle. Fill center with canned pie filling. Fold over sides & ends. Bake in 350° oven 50 minutes. About 15 minutes before taking out of oven, sprinkle with almonds if desired. Combine powdered sugar & 3 T water to make icing. When cool, drizzle with icing. Any flavor pie filling may be used.
