POA Residents/Members,(From Linda Cocke)
The CDPOA directory is now available online and will be updated as soon as new residents move in or current residents move out. You can find the link to the directory on the CDPOA website (cdpoa.com or cdpoa.org) under Our Community.
When you reach the directory page, you will be asked to enter a password (this prevents anyone outside the CDPOA from accessing the directory). Please contact Linda Cocke to obtain the password. Please do not share this password with anyone who is not a Clemson Downs Property Owner. We will not share the directory information with anyone outside CDPOA.
There are two directories–one organized by last name and one organized by street address. The revision date of the directory is listed on the directory page. You can download the latest edition of the directory if you wish.

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.
We are also welcome to attend the weekly Friday movie at 2 m in the large room at the Corley Center. Many of you may particularly be interested in the movie on February 23rd, Victoria and Abdul with Judi Dench as an aging Victoria. List of movies each month is in the CARC Newsletter.
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.
