Sammamish Fire Station #82

The Sterling Woods Home Owners Association board has called this meeting so that we as the members of the Sterling Woods Home Owners Association can discuss issues surrounding the unauthorized cutting of trees in common greenbelt areas and the consequences to us. There will be no voting at this meeting. Here is the agenda:

• 10 minute review/recap of AbiEzzi’s perspective
• 10 minute review of Wright’s perspective
• 20 minute presentation of the research, findings and perspective from the HOA board.
(10 additional minutes provided as the board is presenting on both occurrences)
• 50 minutes of discussion with all home owners present

If you have questions regarding the meeting, please direct them to our two board members, Scott Cosman and Scott Porter

Mailbox Security
You may have read in the local paper that Sammamish neighborhoods are still being targeted by identity thieves who steal mail to get credit card information and checks. If you are tired of driving to the bank to pick up your checks, then join up with Sterling Woods neighbors who are working on replacing the current mailboxes with locked boxes similar to the ones now in Timberline. Your neighbor Albert Jee of NE 21st CT has volunteered to chair a committee which will work on this issue. The committee will report to the board and the neighborhood on its recommendations. If you would like to work with Albert please email him at

The Mother of All Garage Sales Is Coming
My son Mychal and I are members of the Redmond Toddler Group and I am on their board. Saturday, October 16, the Redmond Toddler Group (RTG) will be holding its annual giant garage sale to benefit Eastside Baby Corner, Children’s Hospital and RTG. The sale will run from 9 AM to 1 PM in the group’s warehouse. You can get directions to the RTG facility, which is just off 520, near Microsoft and the PRO Sports Club, by visiting RTG's website at If you want to get the best selection, visit the sale early. For best prices, shop the last half an hour when everything will be offered for 50% off the initial price.

RTG is accepting donations for the sale of clothing, toys and accessories for infants, toddlers and children up to age five. You are welcome to leave donations in a box or bag on my porch up until October 14. Dave and I are at 1920 205th PL – the long white house with the blue door – last house as you leave the neighborhood on the left hand side. Please leave only clean, washed clothes and items that fit the criteria above – no household items.
