Hello Pine Lakes,

Spring has finally sprung! With nice weather finally approaching and the anticipation of friends and family visiting the community, I thought that now would be a good time to remind everyone of our community rules and regulations pertaining to guests and the use of the facilities.

  • Guests who will be with you for more than 3 days must be registered with the office. If they're staying more than 2 weeks they must be approved by management. All guests are limited to a maximum of 30 days in a calendar year. Call or email us if you are expecting a guest, and we will note your file.
  • You must accompany your guests at all amenities. Any unattended guests using community facilities will be asked to leave. You are responsible for the behavior of your guests.
  • Pets are not allowed in the pool area or the pool.
  • Glass of any sort is not allowed in the pool area or the pool.
  • Allowing people from outside the community who are not directly your guest, into the pool or clubhouse is not permitted.
  • We have many wonderful plans for improvements at the pool and clubhouse area that will give the area a tremendous facelift and add even more to the beauty of our community.

We hope that you all enjoy this beautiful weather and the upgrades we’re making!

Sincerely,
Tammy
Community Manager

Your Health

Say Cheese!

With so many things to worry about, it’s easy to forget dental care, but did you know the importance of dental cleaning goes up as you age? There are increased risks of discomfort and other problems when you forgo regular dental check-ups. Make sure you’re doing all you can for your pearly whites!

PLAMHO News

Megaphone graphic

In January, the Pine Lakes Residents’ Association was reorganized, and they co-hosted a Residents’ Association/PLAMHO Super Bowl Party on February 13. January also saw the AAMHO (Arizona Association) come to visit and speak with residents about various educational programs available through their organization. In March, we had the Pine Lakes Shred-A-Thon, where tons of paper departed Pine Lakes, leaving file cabinets open and ready for new collectibles. We are continuing to invite speakers to visit us in the future. April has lots of fun events in store, including exercise sessions and CPR training. We are looking forward to all the PLAMHO is bringing to our community!

Go Meatless This Monday

Meatless meal

You may have heard about Meatless Monday, but have you ever tried it? Reducing your meat consumption once a week can not only be good for your own health, but has a positive impact on the environment too. Keep reading to learn why, and get ideas of some delicious plant-based meals to try.

Go Meatless This Monday

Meatless meal

Have you ever tried Meatless Monday? Reducing your meat consumption once a week can not only be good for your own health, but has a positive impact on the environment as well. Your Monday meals will taste even better knowing that you’re saving the planet one bite at a time.

In addition to curbing the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, eating less meat has a slew of other health benefits such as helping you maintain a healthy weight. Make sure you consume your daily recommended amount of protein from plants (like beans and nuts) to feel energized and satisfied.

Did you know that livestock production generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars, trucks, planes, and trains in the world? The meat industry is one of the biggest exploiters of precious resources like land, water, and energy. Planting vegetables is much more sustainable than raising millions of livestock a year. Going meatless even just once a week helps keep our atmosphere clean for everyone now and in the future.

Plus, following a plant-based diet doesn’t mean your taste buds have to suffer. There are hundreds of meat alternatives that allow you to eat all your favorite foods in a new way. Sub in jackfruit for pulled pork during your next barbecue and slap some lentil burgers on the grill. Check out these recipes from Food Network to find fresh, exciting meals that will make Meatless Monday your favorite day of the week.

Give Us a Sign

Zodiac chart

Whether you believe in astrology or not, it can still be lots of fun to learn what your astrological sign says about you! The twelve astrological signs can be split up into four elements: fire, water, air, and earth. Find out what your sign is and what it says about you!

If you are an adrenaline junkie and unafraid to speak your mind, you may be a fire sign. Aries are competitive, passionate people who tend to be the dominant force in their relationships. Leos are natural-born leaders who love the spotlight; just remember there are other people on stage! Sagittarius is a travel-loving sign that is always ready for philosophical conversations.

If you are an emotional person who easily connects with others, you may be a water sign. Dreamy Pisces is sensitive, caring, and artistic. Cancers are nurturing souls that are deeply sentimental; they tend to be loyal friends. A Scorpio can often come across as moody, but they secretly have a heart of gold.

If you love having engaging conversations with new people, you may be an air sign. Gemini is the social butterfly of the zodiac; be sure to stay true to yourself no matter who you are surrounded by! Libras enjoy the finer things in life—when they can decide what they want. An Aquarius is a unique individual who craves intellectual stimulation.

Finally, if you are humble yet set in your ways, you may be an earth sign. A Taurus is often a dependable foodie who tends to be stubborn in love and war. You will likely spot a Virgo checking off their to-do list and heading to a goat yoga class after work. Capricorn is a determined, hardworking sign that should remember to indulge in self-care; they deserve it!
