Board of Directors announces
Holiday Decorating Contest.
Alright, let’s get back to celebrating our community and the joy that this time of year brings. First let us start by thanking all of our residents who chose to decorate their homes this year. The decorating committee did a drive around the community and after some coquito tallied the following results:
- Best Themed house for their use of toy soldiers across the front of the house and garage goes to 13254 Roxboro.
- Followed closely with the Mickey themed house at 7334 Tattant.
- Best Front Porch was found at 7850 Brofield with their choice of lights and packages to bring about a most decided holiday display.
- Followed by 7418 Tattant.
- The Contemporary or Modern nod goes to 13249 Roxboro for their blend of lights and projection images.
- In their shadow was the home on 7912 Brofield utilizing Frosty who is a favorite this time of year.
- The Griswald this year was so close we had to break it in two
- 8015 Jailene capturing the one story slot, and
- 7278 Londale once again captures the two story display.
- In the Classic Division 13912 Darchance edged out 7403 Derexa in the use of lighting, garland trim and the Fa-la-la-la sign out front.
- The Townhome competition was a tight race with 7720 Moser pulling slightly forward of 7729 Jailene. The extra decorations in the second floor windows was the deciding factor.
Thanks again for showing your spirit to mankind and your community. Hope to see more next year.

Townhome Owners: Please read this message from the Board.
It’s an Update regarding Stucco and TJI joist issues in the Townhomes.
EVERY TOWNHOME OWNER NEEDS TO TAKE ACTION ON THESE ISSUES.
ARB Approval And Pulte Stucco Repairs
Many owners in our community are having warranty work being done by Pulte. Recently, several received notification from Pulte that they will not be permitted to change their paint colors moving forward. This is because several residents did not follow the community guidelines or Pulte’s direction to get ARB approval prior to painting. ARB approval is required, even if you are repainting the same color.
Landlords & Tenants
All owners leasing property need to provide the Association with a mailing address to receive official correspondence. Owners remain responsible for any covenants or architectural violations and are encouraged to provide copies of relevant documents to tenants.
Free Stucco Inspections For Homeowners
PULTE GROUP has reached out to our Association and is offering free inspections to homeowners in Lake Sawyer South who are concerned with the stucco on their PULTE home. Please email Jennie Shannon if you have questions or to set up an inspection.
Disclaimer: If you are currently represented by an attorney, either as an individual or as part of any class action regarding this issue, Pulte will not be permitted to respond to your request for inspection. Any communications you wish to have with Pulte must be through your attorney.
