Tuscany Sun Editorial – February 10

What’s The Sense Worrying About Scents? Last month, one of our residents wrote in about the fact that scent from dryer vents can be found everywhere and that this was affecting the quality of the air he, and others, are breathing.  A number of residents responded positively but more weighed in that they are tired of hearing people complain, especially about something as ridiculously inane as bounce sheets.

Tuscany Club – Tree Down and Card Swiping 1

If you’ve ever wondered, as I have, why you have to swipe your TRA card every time you want to get into the Tuscany Club, here’s a bit of background from Chris, GM of the Tuscany Club. The two main reasons why we are now asked to use our card to access the Club are: The Club has been visited by the Police a few times and staff have been asked if they were able to account for who is in their building. This new swiping system allows for this type of accounting. The Club has pre-school programs running daily and, as part of keeping children safe, the new swiping system adds an important level of security for parents and program coordinators. This level of security also protects others who are attending programs or using the Club’s facilities. You may have noticed that there is a large tree down on Tuscany Way, just south […]

Open House – Thanks!

Thank you to the residents who helped to make our Open House on January 21st such a success. It was great talking to so many residents who are invested in our community and who would like to work with and within the TCA to continue to build and strengthen Tuscany. Key to the continued success of the TCA will be involvement from our community members. If you were unable to make it to the open house but would like to join the Board, feel free to send an email to our President for more information. Alternatively, if you do not want to take on an active Board position but would be interested in helping get various events off the ground, we would be happy to place you on our support list for contact in the future. TCA committees include Parks and Planning, Events and Recreation, Sports, Safety and Youth Development. Looking forward […]

Tuscany Community Garden – Interested?

A community meeting will be held on February 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Tuscany Club to gauge interest in starting a Tuscany Community Garden. This meeting is open to anyone interested in the idea of starting a beautiful, welcoming gathering place in our community. Gardening experience is not required. What is a community garden: Community gardens come in many different shapes and sizes.  Gardeners can have their own individual plot within the community garden and can also join with others to grow some crops communally, sharing in the work and the harvest. Every community garden is unique and develops from what the gardeners decide.
