POOL PASS FOR CIMARRON PKWY &

HIGHLAND KNOLLS POOLS

In an effort to only allow homeowners and residents in good standing

to use the facilities, everyone wishing to use the pool must check in with

the lifeguard when entering the pools. Memorial Parkway uses an online

check in called CELLBADGE SYSTEM. This is a mobile security badging and

you will no longer use a printed ID Card to enter the pool. Resident’s will

love not having to carry a card or an ID. CELLBADGE features no paper

forms but a one-time online registration. Resident’s will use the mobile

check-in and can see if the pool is open from home. If you registered last

year you do not need to do anything with your account unless there have

been changes. If you have not registered please visit our website at mphoa.

org and register under the Swim Info tab - Pool Access CELLBADGE page.

ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION INVITES

KATY/WEST HOUSTON RESIDENTS TO

JOIN 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®​

Participants will Raise Critically Needed Awareness and Funds for

Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. ​The Alzheimer’s Association®​

is inviting​Katy, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston

area ​residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the

Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.​ ​The Walk will take place

on Saturday, September 26, 2020,​​at​ ​La Centerra Shopping Center in Katy,

Texas. On walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s

disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden

Ceremony - a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons

participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s.

This year’s challenge is whether we will be able to come together of 1,300

walkers or not. So we have two plans - Plan A is to have the big event. Plan

B is to have a virtual event that may be held in various neighborhoods,

businesses, schools and other smaller communities where people can

come together and Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In addition to the 3-mile

walk, participants will enjoy a fun-filled experience that includes valuable

information, celebrations, entertainment, corporate sponsors and so

much more.

Participants can join a team or register to walk as an individual at ​www.

alz.org/walk​.

Even though the office has been closed, the Alzheimer’s Association has

continued to offer support through various avenues than before the

stay-at-home order. The 24/7 Free Hotline can be a lifeline for those who

suffer from the disease and those who care for them, call 800-272-3900.

Support Groups are meeting virtually, please check www.alz.org for

times and locations. Facebook Live sessions are held every Wednesday

at 11 AM. Find the live sessions and lots of other programs and events on

the Facebook page, “Alzheimer’s Association: Houston & Southeast Texas

Chapter.” Virtual classes are offered to cover many issues each week. To

Memorial Parkway | July 2020 9


NATIONAL CELL PHONE COURTESY MONTH

National Cell Phone Courtesy Month during July encourages us to

evaluate our cellular habits and consider others before we reach for

our phone. Our phones have become an integral part of our lives. We

schedule events organize shopping lists order birthday presents and

communicate all from this one, small device. Do we even make a phone

call any more?

Phone courtesy has always been in fashion, but when they became

smart, it seems we lost a few brain cells. National Cell Phone Courtesy

Month strives to bring polite phone usage back in style.

DOS AND DON’TS

Silent the phone whenever you’re spending time with anyone. That

includes work, a meal, meeting or with family. If you are attending a

performance of any kind, turn the phone off. There are exceptions to this

rule for medical professionals or other expectant emergency situations.

Hidden phones are forgotten phones. We pay attention to the people

in the room, the performance or the meeting. It’s also a signal to the

people we are with that they are important to us.

Step away if you do need to take a call. No one needs to hear your

conversation while trying to enjoy a meal for two.

Shhh. Monitor the volume of your voice. Even when you step away,

voices carry.

Pause before sending emails, texts or social media posts. Consider

the content, especially if it is posted in haste. Ask yourself the following

questions. Sometimes just the need to ask will be all the answer you need

before deleting the comment or text: Will I regret sending this later? Am I

angry? Will this hurt someone? Is this appropriate? Will this affect my job

or relationship?

Don’t use your phone and drive. Many states prohibit cellular use or

limit it to hands-free only. Any message can wait until you arrive at your

destination. If it truly is urgent, pull to a safe stopping area to receive the

message or call.

Don’t let your mobile device become a social hindrance. We often

look to our phone for social engagement when we don’t know what else

to do. Meet new people when you are in a new circle of people and begin

networking with the people near you. Expand your social circle face to

face and broaden the world around you.

Our phones are tools. They shouldn’t replace every social context

in our lives. Practice a little courtesy and gain improved relationships

everywhere you go. Encourage your friends and families to join you

throughout the month.

NATIONAL WATERPARK DAY

On July 28 th , laughter and fun are just a couple of

the requirements on National Waterpark Day! We

recommend bathing suits, too!

Waterparks around the world provide thrilling,

water plunging rides for those who seek the whiteknuckle

hydro powered slides. For those who prefer

to relax and unwind, lazy rivers, wave pools and

spas in tropical scenes satisfy these vacationers.

With so many options to choose from, waterparks

can be more than just a portion of a vacation. They

can be the destination. In the United States, nearly

every state has a waterpark. The Wisconsin Dells is

the Waterpark Capital of the World and the largest

indoor park in America is currently at Kalahari

Resorts and Conventions in the Pocono Mountains,

Pennsylvania.

From the youngest family member to grandma and

grandpa, there’s a splashable, relaxable experience

for all. On National Waterpark Day, enjoy all the

memory making waterparks have to offer!

Don’t wait! The water is perfect at a waterpark near

you. Grab your bathing suit and make a splash!

When it needs more than a band-aid,

Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room?

Did you know a visit to the ER can cost as much as five times

more than a visit to Excel Urgent Care, for the same problem?
