financial and legal affairs of the subdivision. Each lot
owner is required to pay an annual maintenance fee
which is used to pay street lights; pay taxes on and
maintain the common areas, such as the swimming
pools, tennis courts, etc.; pay for security; and pay legal
expenses incurred to enforce the deed restrictions.
The Board meets the 2nd Thursday of every
month at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the
community building. Residents are welcome to attend.
Anyone wishing to place an item on the agenda
should call the HPCA office in advance.
The Annual Meeting of Members is held on the
4th Thursday of January.
Members hold three year staggered terms and are
elected. The election process is as follows:
1) Mail in ballots will be mailed out with the Annual
Maintenance fee statements.
2) Voting in person will begin on the 1st Monday
after the Annual Meeting ending on the following
Saturday at 7pm.

Recipes & Gardening Tips
Dark Chocolate And Cinnamon
You could make this on
National Frozen Custard Day August 8th!
2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 ounce high-quality dark chocolate (85%), finely chopped
5 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
Whisk cream, milk, sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan over
medium heat until the mixture is thoroughly combined and the sugar
has dissolved. Bring almost to a simmer and stir in dark chocolate
until melted. Whisk egg yolks into the cream mixture and cook until
batter is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a container,
cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 6 hours.
Stir cinnamon into chilled custard batter and freeze in an ice cream
machine following manufacturer’s instructions. Sprinkle frozen
custard with more cinnamon to serve.
You could make this on National Creamsicle Day August 14th!
2 cups ginger ale, chilled
2 cups orange soda, chilled
1/2 cup milk
4 scoops orange sherbet
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Stir ginger ale, orange soda and milk together in a pitcher.
Divide orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream equally between 4
glasses. Pour ginger ale mixture over ice cream into each glass.
• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects.
• Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves
and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of
iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates.
• Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little
bone meal around the roots.
• Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall
• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.
• Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have
areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t
brought under control. There is a new generation going
now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban
to stop the damage.
• Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine
grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a
fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing
while it puts down roots. You will need to water the
new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also
creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun
can dry the turf.
• Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up,
add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for
a month or so. Add in any amendments like micronutrients.
Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms
have a favorable environment.

Bus Driving Parents will have the opportunity to further their role in their
student’s education and drive their student’s school on field trips. BDP’s
will be vetted and trained through Katy ISD, as well as be compensated
for the time they drive. Once they’ve earned their Commercial Driver’s
License (CDL), completed training and earned driving hours, BDP’s will
be able to drive students to field trips as often as they want. While the
training upfront can take time, Bus Driving Parents will help to provide
an incredible service to the district and expand learning experiences
for students. To apply and get more information, visit http://bit.ly/

that 24 of its schools were named a Texas Honor Roll School by the
Educational Results Partnership (ERP).

Shafer, Stanley, Williams, Wilson and Wolman.
Junior High: Beck, Beckendorff, Katy, McMeans, Memorial Parkway,

High School: Cinco Ranch, Mayde Creek, Seven Lakes, Taylor and
After an extensive analysis of student data, ERP found that these Katy ISD
schools were clear leaders in getting students to grade level and beyond.
The 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle
and high schools that consistently demonstrate high levels of student
academic achievement, improvement in student outcomes over time and
a closing of the achievement gaps. For high schools, the Texas Honor Roll
recognition includes measures of college readiness. This year, the program
recognized 855 higher performing schools across the state. These schools
become an accepted example to other school districts seeking to learn
and replicate the best practices employed at these campuses. Katy ISD
