Escapee-Co-op Park

There were several things to consider when it came time to choose the location that would be our home for
our retirement years. When we decided on Timber Valley it was because of many factors.

First, it is in the beautiful north west with its four definite seasons and mild weather.
Just a mile off of the I-5 freeway in a small town but still close to major shopping.
We would be in a community of like minded people.

The most critical determination was financial. The membership was to cost us about ten thousand dollars
and the yearly maintenance fees would be somewhere around one thousand. There would be
assessments from time to time, usually for repaving of a street or the addition of a major improvement. &
while those figures seemed quite reasonable what convinced us was the money paid for the membership
plus the assessments would be paid back to us when we gave up our membership & that money could be
our start up money in a different living arrangement or maybe money for our heirs.
We have had our lease in Timber Valley for 14 years now. Monthly we marvel at all our home here offers us.
In our previous life and a more conventional home north of Seattle, our yearly water, garbage, and sewer
bill was more than our present maintenance fee. And we still had the property tax,  electric, and natural gas
to pay. In Timber Valley water, garbage,and sewer are paid by our maintenance fee.  Even our share of the
property taxes are covered.  We still have to pay electric and propane but together they are less than half
our old electric bill.
Living in Timber Valley is very affordable and makes our limited income go further. And it is a comfort to
know that if the time comes that we must leave Timber Valley there is a nice protected nest egg waiting for
What a good choice we made.

It happened at the Activities Club Meeting, Oooops,
I meant to say  it happened at the Jack & Jills meeting as it was voted to return to the Jacks & Jills
name. All members of Timber Valley are members of Jacks & Jills, the group that gets to plan all of
the fun things here at Timber Valley.

Other things decided at the meeting were...
  • The Mens Cooking Group is planning a dinner for June 17 at 4pm. When menu and price are
    decided the sign-up sheets will be posted at the Club House. It has been agreed that those
    that sign-up and fail to attend will be billed by the Jacks & Jills for the dinner. Provisions are
    bought based on the number of people signed up. It is unfair and costly to sign-up and then
    not attend. If you sign up you are obligated to pay for your meal. If you cannot attend remove
    your name from the list before provisions are bought.
  • Plans for the yard sale, June 13, were discussed. Items donated to the Jacks & Jills can be
    put on the stage, under the skirted tables. Needed still are volunteers to sell the donuts and
    coffee,and work on the Jacks & Jills table. Vendors will pay $5.
  • A return to a Friday afternoon Social hour, every Friday at 3pm. No MC or business meeting. A
    purely social gathering to meet visitors and neighbors. Bring snacks if you wish along with
    beverage of your choice.
  • Line dancing led by Jeanine Wainwright will start again June 9th at 10am or right after the
    Board Workshop scheduled for that morning.
  • Pizza at Roundtable. The third Tuesday of every month at 11:30. Sign up sheets will be in
    clubhouse. The restaurant likes about 25-30 people to reserve the big room for our use.  
    Please sign-up.
  • Please turn off lights when leaving club house and laundry.
  • Keep pets on leash.
