Dental Clinic Passes Milestone

Congratulations to Claire Silk.


Estrella del Mar resident and retired dental hygienist Clair Silk has passed a milestone. Her original idea of trying to improve the dental health of the children of Barron has succeeded beyond her wildest expectations and she has managed to pass the responsibility of the program to local authorities.

Claire, along with EDM resident Janice Schoen, spend the morning of February 22, 2017 at the Barron kindergarten treating 65 four-, five- and six-year olds with fluoride. This program was initiated three years ago as a supplement to the full dental treatments administered to the entire primary school, a program that began in 2013.

Telephone Book Available

The beta-test copy of the new EDM Telephone Book is attached. It contains the first 40 responders.  Latecomers will be added to the list as necessary.  To download updated copies of the list, please use the “Telephone Directory” tab at the top of the Las Lagunitas website. I will be updating the EDM contacts list as information trickles in.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Phone Directory Anyone?

It has come to my attention that residents here would like an updated telephone directory. My most recent copy dates from 2006. Because of privacy issues, the HOA administration cannot compile a list for us. But if you would like to make your phone number available to your neighbors, please fill out the form below.  I will create a tab on this website (at the top) that you can click and access.  You should be able to print it.

I will ask Lori to notify the general ownership using her secure server because I know all owners do not follow this blog site. Hopefully, they will contact me if they would like to be included.
