If you do not feel comfortable attending, we are providing a Proxy form (attached). If you would like your vote to be counted, we ask that you complete the form and add the name of someone who can vote on your behalf. We have included the names of the current QRRA board members below, should you wish to give them your Proxy.
We ask that ALL proxies be returned to the Association no later than October 4th. (You can send your signed proxy by email to: email@example.com).

FireSmart Challenge Deadline: October 7th, 2020
Don’t miss your chance to win 4 rounds of golf, with carts, courtesy of the Okanagan Golf Club!
This year, the fall FireSmart cleanup has abit of a twist! As detailed in the September 29th FireSmart Community Update, the FireSmart activity will be the same as in previous years, with homeowners making their homes and yards more fire safe by removing;
· dead plants, leaves and weeds within 10 meters of a home
· leaves, pine needles and other debris from roofs and gutters
… and placing the material in homeowners’ Green Bins before the October 7th Green Bin pick-up.
If you do so before October 7th Green Bin pickup day, remember to email email@example.com to have your name included in the draw.

As you might have noticed, there are a few changes at Airport Village.
National Car Rental has left its Airport Village location. However, the village is welcoming a new dental office, Quail Ridge Dental, that should be opening in October. And the newest business at the village, the Grizzly Bear Bistro & Bar, has launched its full menu – see attached. As usual, Quail Ridge residents will receive a 10% off on their food bill (not applicable during Happy hour and with any other discounts).
