POA Residents/Members,From Linds Cocke) 12/29/2019A man claiming to be from Paradise Home Improvement stopped by the home of one of our residents. The man said he was doing work for Gaston Gage. Just one little problem – the Gages moved to the apartments several years ago and Gaston is now deceased. The man appears to clearly be soliciting and I’m not even sure he is from Paradise. He either didn’t see the “No Solicitation” sign or chose to ignore it.

Doing some early spring cleaning? Box up your items and CD volunteers will come fetch. Furniture, too. Have some treasures ? We provide tax forms for your record of donations. Your contributions help the volunteers provide for needs in assisted living and health care at CARC. That, along with Volunteer hours, helps keep costs down for CARC residents . Call Ann Fuhr 888-7321 for pick up or information.
DID YOU KNOW?—The Clemson Downs Volunteers have equipment to loan to assist all residents in their disability needs or as they recover from surgery. We have wheelchairs, porta-potties, walkers, canes, transfer chairs, knee scooters etc. on loan for your use when needed. Do you have similar equipment you wish to donate? Call the numbers given above. Thank you all for your support of the volunteers and the store.
I talked with two people this morning with Ft. Hill Gas Authority and they are making some changes regarding installation of gas lines here in the Downs.
Wherever possible, they will be boring around 6 feet beneath all the yards where lines will be installed INSTEAD of trenching. However, they will have to dig at least one hole at the water meter(s) in each yard to locate the water pipe that goes from meter to the street. Also, they MAY have to dig to find a power or telephone line in a few places. They will make every effort not to trench unless they run into a problem that cannot be solved otherwise.
After these digs, the clumps of grass removed will be put back in place. Also they have a grass seed mix that they will put down. If you do NOT want them to put the seed mix down, call JOE WILSON at 864 423 9006 and tell him so. You will need to give him your name, street address, and perhaps a phone number. Do that ASAP because they are beginning work to find pipes/lines on Hickory Way today.
Recently a car was stolen from one of the CARC parking lots. The thief, a worker with a sub-contractor, was arrested. Please be aware that there are many people from outside the Downs here on a daily basis, and based on the situation mentioned above, some of them may be tempted to take that which is not theirs. For your protection, please park your cars in your garage. If for some reason they are parked outside your garage for a time, please lock them. Also ask your guests to do the same.

Since we have several new residents, this is a good time to remind all our members that they can take advantage of two CARC services that are open to POA members.
The Bistro at the far end of the dining hall is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 7 and serves appetizers, soups, salads and sandwiches.
Volunteers are desperately needed for the health center. Places are available as receptionists, servers in the Sun Room, visitors and water pourers Positions are also available in Assisted Living. All of these can done once a week, once a month, two hour or three hour shifts. These positions provide each server with a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, make friends or visit with old friends, and make life a little more interesting for those who are not as free. The work is relatively easy, but the reward is priceless. If interested please call or text Wendy Longo, phone 722-5477.
