- You are welcome to wear a mask. However, that is not a requirement.
- Tables will be cleaned before we begin to play.
- There will be hand sanitizer on each table.
- It is still $5 to play and the winners will be the same as before.
- We are asking everyone to bring their own dice (3). This cuts down on shared surfaces.
- Please bring your own pen to keep your score. Score sheets will be provided.
- We will be playing at a table for 3 games before we move. This will cut down on movement and may even help those of us who have difficulty getting up and down. The winners of 2 of the 3 games will be the moving pair. (winners wander-losers linger)
- There will not be refreshments served, so please bring a drink if you would like to have one. A short bathroom break is planned.

Some monies are available for refreshing the fountain area, those plants that didn’t make it or are doing poorly. If you are willing to help, reply to Sandy to add your name, phone and available times to the list.
A date has not been decided since Mother Nature is in control. When a time is decided you will be notified. Plants won’t be bought unless there are volunteers to help. Planting in May is our goal.
Appreciate any time you can spare.
The April financials (and all past financials) can be found under BOARD->FINANCE.
You have received the May monthly newsletter in the mail, but it and all past newsletters are available here under the NEWSLETTERS menu item.
Dear Fountains friends,
The Raintree Board has approved reopening the clubhouses for activities beginning May 3rd 2021. Per current Jackson County mandates, social distancing and masks are still required, but may be changing. Raintree is providing sanitizing wipes for surfaces and hand sanitizer. We are beginning with an abundance of caution and our protocols may change as the local community Covid protocols and infection rates are revised. Your decision to participate should be based on your own comfort level.
Fountains Bunko will begin Monday, June 28 at 1:00 at the Duck Pond Activities Center. (It is in the Shoreline calendar for May without our input.) We are asking participants to have a mask, bring their own covered beverage, 3 dice, and a pen for scorekeeping. No refreshments will be provided. Hand sanitizer will be available at each table. $5 per person. Contact Donna Paulic 505-250-1135 with questions.
Canasta is played on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. in the Duck Pond Activities Center. It is in the Shoreline calendar to play May 12th and 26th. Participants are asked to have a mask, and their own covered beverage. No refreshments will be provided. Hand sanitizer will be available at each table. Please contact Judy Anderson, 913-940-8669, with questions and if you would rather start in June instead.
Other Fountains Social Activities: Other social events are being planned, including backyard socials, beginning late May/early June. Stay tuned for more information!

The Fountains at Raintree
Call for Nominations
The Fountains is governed by a five-member Board of Directors. The term of office is set at one-year. Terms of the existing Board members expire at the July annual meeting, which will be July 15th, 2021 at 6:30PM at the Raintree Lake clubhouse.
Please respond to Sandy at Area Real Estate by June 1st, 2021, expressing your interest in serving on the next Board. Sandy will gather all expressions of interest and assist the current Board in assembling a ballot document to be mailed to homeowners for voting.
In preparation for discussion by Fountains homeowners at our July meeting, a request was made to RLPOA to allow deposit of dredged silt from our Pond on RLPOA vacant property West of Ward Road. This was done in 2017 when we dredged our retention pond. One estimate of the cost of disposal added $50,000 to the project cost if the contractor needed to truck the silt any significant distance. The request is under consideration. However, there is limited available space due to use restrictions.
This is an ongoing discussion.Dredging the Pond
