Help Needed
As we reflect back on all that had been accomplished here in 2014, between social events, pool renovations, playground upgrade, roads being turned over to the State, successful fundraisers, etc....ALL of which is accomplished and spearheaded by VOLUNTEERISM. This community is hugely run by volunteers who dedicate their time, energy, expertise and love for the community. THANK YOU to ALL the volunteers, past, present and future for what you have done in Porters Landing!!! 
Having said that, we are in need of help for 2015 and unfortunately if we don't get the volunteer help, we may have to dissolve committees and/or pay outsiders to do some of the work needed and in turn that means our dues go up. PLEASE consider volunteering your time so we can keep this neighborhood the beautiful, family friendly community that it is. Below listed are the areas of help needed for 2015:

Pool Committee- Committee Members Needed. If you are interested in helping out and would like to know more about what the Pool Committee does, please contact 
 
Social Committee- Committee Members needed. If you like to help out, share idea's, plan parties and just have FUN, come join the Social Committee!! No prior experience needed, just a desire to have a good time!! Please contact Myleen Sweet at socialcommittee@porterslanding.org.

Landscape Committee- Committee Members needed. If you are interested in heading up or helping out and would like to know more about what the Landscape Committee does, please contact Deb Rowan at landscapingcommittee@porterslanding.org.
