A warm welcome to the many homeowners new to Harbor Hills. It’s great to see some new faces at the clubhouse, pool, courts and golf course. Tonight, we will gather in the Griffinview Lounge for the ‘Meet A Neighbor, Bring A Neighbor’ event. Two-for-one drinks, light appetizers and live entertainment can’t be beat for sharing the company of friends, old and new.
Speaking of positive receptions, Member Appreciation Day has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 17. Harbor Hills club members will be treated to a special afternoon event poolside. We expect a great turnout and lots of fun.
There are so many unique aspects to our community and the spectacular view is only one. Strolling peacocks and sand hill cranes dot the hills of our rolling fairways. Newcomers also notice small wooden nest boxes placed high on poles along our golf course.
In 2012, resident Debbie Schrader rallied the Harbor Hills community to create these nest boxes to provide a safe habitat for the declining population of bluebirds. Harbor Hills neighbors quickly responded. With the developer’s approval and the talent of neighbors Bill Stone and Jim Griffith, thirty of the boxes were crafted to house these brightly colored birds.
From mid-February through mid-July, the bluebirds lay about five light blue eggs to a nest. In just two weeks, the eggs hatch. The fledglings leave the nest 15 to 20 days later so golfers, be aware!
Fostering a love for these birds is exactly what Debbie hoped would happen. She estimated that 150 additional bluebird babies are added to our community annually. To enjoy the sights and sounds of these beautiful birds, visit Harbor Hills and experience our unique community first hand. We are open to the public seven days a week year round.
