NEW! Craneridge Newsletter

The Communications Committee is excited to re-establish Quarterly Craneridge Newsletters! The November Edition is out now, with timely information about upcoming events, as well as written contributions from a few of your neighbors!
The Newsletter will be printed and mailed out to all residents this week, but in the meantime, please check-out the PDF version on-line now! Craneridge Newsletter-November 2018

Also, in order to more effectively and efficiently conduct Association business and to facilitate improved communications with residents; the Craneridge HOA desires to start utilizing electronic communications for the Association’s business and communications, which includes noticing of meetings, general mailings, newsletters and owner account billings. By utilizing electronic communications, the HOA will save money otherwise spent on postage and copies. We are also looking to update the residential directory and make it available within a password protected member’s only online directory. 

Please sign-up here:

NOTE: Craneridge will protect your privacy and never provide your email to third parties or include your address on mass email distributions.

The Craneridge Cookie Exchange is back!

Cookie Exchange is back so come and join us for an afternoon of fun and laughter. Meet your neighbors and make new friends.

It’s easy to join the fun. Make 5 dozen of one variety of cookie. Set aside one dozen on a plate to share with everyone at the exchange.

Divide the remaining four dozen into wrapped packages/bags of six cookies each. (Suggestion: use Dollar Store goodie bags or ziplock bags or be creative with your packaging.) Bring your cookies in a basket or box so you have something to take your ‘new’ cookies home in.  You can keep your cookies, share with a neighbor or relatives or take them to work.  Want to attend but not participate in the exchange, that’s  OK.  Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.
