BOOK CLUB

*** Attention New and Former Members *** NEW MEETING DATE –4th Tuesday of each month Want to meet some interesting characters? Open a book. Want to meet some real-life interesting characters, too? Join a book club! TOP 5 REASONS TO JOIN OUR BOOK CLUB: • You meet interesting people. The trick is not to join a book club full of your best friends. It is a great way to meet new people. Our book club is composed of women of all ages and these ladies hail from all over the world. In addition to gaining quite distinct views on the book at hand, we also gain a window into others lives, which can be so very different from our own. • You read things that you wouldn’t otherwise read. Which ties to point #1, people outside of your immediate circle of friends are more likely to have different literary tastes. We all know it is more beneficial to read a wide variety of styles, but it is difficult to pickup books outside your comfort zone. Joining our book club is a great way to expose your self to variety. We can learn from both the good and not so good writers. • Some books need to be discussed. Need I say more?

• You eat great food. The hostess provides soft drinks and dessert and then others bring a small dish or wine to share. We always have something great to eat and drink. • Sometimes it’s fun just to chat. Finally – we do talk about the book and some discussions are longer than others but we also chit chat. It is just a great way to meet and get to know other women. A book club is a great excuse to make and keep friends. Taking the time to enjoy your self and have some fun with books and other people is reward in itself. We meet the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00-9:30pm. We read all kinds of books suggested by our members – classics, contemporary fiction, non-fiction, biographies, romance, sci-fi, etc. There are no book snobs in our group – we read it all! Ask about our inventive way of choosing books to read! If you are a book lover or simply want to expand your reading and social network, please consider joining us. We invite any woman in Fairfield or surrounding subdivisions to attend one of our meetings as a guest or a member. This is a great time of the year to join. Please contact Linda Locke at 713-298-6514 (text or call). Come Join us for an evening!

Take Care of Texas by Managing Your Leaves As autumn brings cooler temperatures, it also signals the arrival of another seasonal display - falling leaves! While Take Care of Texas encourages you to plant shade trees to help lower your utility bills in the summer, these deciduous trees lose their leaves in the fall. Instead of raking and bagging them, where they will head to a landfill, put them back into your lawns and gardens as a valuable source of mulch and fertilizer. Leaves contain 50 to 80 percent of the nutrients a plant extracts from the soil and air during the season. Grass clippings, leaves, and other yard debris make up 20 percent of the trash sent to landfills each year. It costs Texans over $250 million a year to collect and dispose of this waste. There are four basic ways to manage leaves and use them in landscaping: Mowing: a light covering of leaves can be mowed, simply leaving the shredded leaves in place on the lawn. This technique is most effective when a mulching mower is used. Mulching: a lawn mower with a bagging attachment provides a fast

FAIR

and easy way to shred and collect the leaves. Apply a three to four inch layer of shredded leaves around the base of trees and shrubs. A two to three inch mulch of shredded leaves is ideal for flowerbeds. For vegetable gardens, a thick layer of leaves placed between the rows functions as a mulch and an all-weather walkway that will allow you to work in your garden during wet periods. Composting: in addition to leaves, other yard wastes such as grass clippings, pine needles, weeds, and small prunings can be composted. Compost can serve as a soil conditioner that nourishes your yard and reduces the need for outdoor watering up to 60 percent. Soil improvement: leaves may be collected and worked directly into garden and flowerbed soils. A six to eight inch layer of leaves tilled into a heavy, clay soil will improve aeration and drainage. The same amount tilled into a light, sandy soil, will improve water and nutrient holding capacity. Visit www.KeepCyFairBeautiful.org to access more Take Care of Texas yard care publications!

On behalf of the Fairfield Sports Association and the Baseball/Softball committee members, I would like to thank you for all your support.

Fifth Annual Cypress Hoops Invitational The Cy-Fair Educational Foundation is gearing up for their highly anticipated Cypress Hoops Invitational Tournament to be held for the fifth year December 11 through 13, 2014. Twentyfour high school varsity level teams, including those from Cy-Fair ISD and outside the district, will compete over the three-day event at various high schools with the championship games held at the Berry Center.  This year’s tournament is underwritten by North Cypress Medical Center Hospital. “Teams from the Dallas area and the San Antonio area will be traveling to Houston for the event,” said Teresa Hull, event co-chair. “This is so exciting because it means that word has gotten out about the high level of organization and quality of our tournament. This will help us continue to build state recognition and gives us great potential to grow,” she said. New this year will be family fun activities including face painting, balloon animals and much more.  Northwest Dodge will once again be sponsoring a chance to win a car during the championship game on December 13, 2014 at the Berry Center.

The tournament was started by community member Eric Burg and modeled after an extremely successful tournament held in Pasadena. Burg, who played basketball in Cy-Fair ISD, wanted a way to showcase the talent and facilities in Cy-Fair ISD and the tournament grew from there. In a nail bitter championship game between Galena Park North Shore and Plano West last year, North Shore pulled ahead and won the tournament. “These games are so fun to watch,” said Teresa. “We are hoping to attract many spectators to cheer for the kids since ticket prices are so reasonable (just $2.00 for students and $3.00 for adults or a family fun pass for $8). We want a lot seats in the seats!” she said.  Last year the tournament raised $18,750.02. All proceeds raised through entry fees, t-shirt sales, game tickets and sponsorships will be used for innovative staff development programs for district teachers and instructional leaders and for scholarships for deserving high school seniors.  For more information about ways to participate, contact Marie Holmes at 281-807-3591 or [email protected].

FAIRFIELD VILLAGE SOUTH NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

The Board of Directors for Fairfield Village South Neighborhood Association has amended the Architectural Review Control Guidelines concerning the number of trees for each lot. Trees: Each Lot is required to at all times have two (2) hardwood trees in the front yard of the Lot (i.e. between the front elevation of the dwelling and the sidewalk). The minimum size (caliper, height and spread) of a hardwood tree is set forth in the Fairfield Control Guidelines. A tree on a Lot may not be removed without prior ARC approval unless the tree is dead of significantly diseased or removed is necessary for the construction of an Improvement on a Lot approved by the ARC, provided that the intent to remove the tree was disclosed in the application submitted to and approved by the ARC. When a tree is removed, the Owner must also remove the stump, fill the resulting hole with dirt, and cover the area with sod. All species of palm trees other than a sago palm are prohibited in the front yard of a Lot or portion of a side yard of a Lot visible from either the street in front of the Lot or, in the case of a corner Lot, the side street. A tree on a Lot shall not obstruct or impair visibility of a stop sign or other traffic sign from a motor vehicle operated on a street in the Subdivision; in the event of the obstruction or impairment of visibility of a traffic sign, as determined by the ARC, the Owner of the Lot on which the tree is located shall be obligated to trim or prune the tree or, if determined by the ARC to be necessary, remove the tree. The ARC Guidelines were amended in an effort to protect sidewalks and streets from damage caused by tree roots. Therefore, Street Trees are no longer required for Fairfield Village South Neighborhood Association. An ARC application must be submitted for approval to remove the street trees. Definition of Street Trees: Trees between the sidewalk and street. If you have any questions, please contact the FirstService Residential Onsite Office at 713-332-4760.

SPONSORED BY: SUPPORTING THEATRE AT RANCH (S.T.A.R.) BOOSTER CLUB This year marks Cy-Ranch High School’s 7th production year as a theatrical company. We are under the artistic leadership of Cheryl Bradford (department head), Jane Bankston, and Charles Page. Over the past 5 years, our students have performed to sold-out audiences for musical productions including Hairspray, Anything Goes, Legally Blonde, and Shrek the Musical. We anticipate the same with this year’s production of The Addams Family. In addition to mainstage musicals, UIL competition, Fresh Faces, Comedy Sportz and various other workshops and performances throughout the year, our students annually attend our state’s Thespian festival. This past year, Shrek the Musical received 6 Tommy Tune Nominations. 28 students advanced to the National level and 8 of our students brought home 1st place honors. CFISD Fine Arts programs do not receive financial support from our school district. Up to this point, our operating budget has been raised through patron attendance and various small-scale fundraisers. On February 6, 2015, the Cy-Ranch High School Supporting Theatre at Ranch (S.T.A.R.) Booster Club will host our second annual Mardi Gras Magic Auction & Gala Fundraiser. This large fundraiser will allow us to go above and beyond our basic operating expenses to help to ensure that we will continue to provide quality opportunities for our students. The generous support of businesses in our community plays a key role in the success of our program. Donations of merchandise and gift certificates are needed for our Silent and Live Auctions, as well as cash underwriting. Funds raised through Mardi Gras Magic 2015 will be used to help offset the expenses needed to send students to competitions, provide much needed technical equipment upgrades for our theatre and classrooms, and allow us to bring in guest teachers for the continued growth of our program. We are actively seeking partners for this endeavor. Please consider how you can help.
