Musings about Rossmoor beginning of September

  • Driving home from Whole Foods at close to 5 today, I stopped at a stop sign, and looked to my right before proceeding.  What????  A coyote was ambling up that street!  So I turned slowly and watched it stroll up the street, turning its head left, then right, and keeping an eye on my car.  I tried to take a photo, but it did not come out well.    When I got home I called a client who has two toy poodles right near there to warn her when she walked them.  That coyote was looking for a dinner!

    If you did not know that there is a Counseling Service in Rossmoor for free!  We have licensed clinical socialworkers and now a Supervisor has finally been hired.  Our counseling services provides short-term counseling, support groups, long-term care planning and referrals to other programs.  It is important that residents know that all of the services are free and confidential.  No problem is too big or too small.

    The Contra Costa County of the Sheriff Search and Rescue  team have been conducting a training event in Rossmoor on September 8th from 7:30 til 3 PM.  This is a drill.  Every month the full team trains together in order to be mission ready.

    The fencing is up and the proposed Event Center is on its way.  Grading has started and Mechanics Bank is providing the financing .  Walnut Creek issued the permits for the Events Center  and we are anticipating the permit for the table tennis center shortly.

    Nancy F. had a Back to Third Grade Rotary party at her home yesterday.  It was a ladies night out and we had to dress like third graders (when we were that age) not like the children now.  We brought lunches in paper bags or lunch boxes, and Nancy had all kinds of trivia for us.  It was a lot of fun and we got to know interesting things about fellow Rotary members.

    The inventory is low in Rossmoor currently.  I had a Summit model home in Pinnacle Ridge and we got three offers that all went way over the asking price. It will close this coming week.  I’ve listed a Saratoga model in Mutual Two with a washer/dryer and delightful views for $130,000.  I’m trying to get it on the market this coming week.  Two bedrooms and one bathroom, new oven too.  This is a good deal.
