Hoedown to Preserve the Henck Homestead

If you like BBQ and a good ol’ fashion Hoedown.. Then come up to Sky Forest this Sunday and help support the community and preserve the Henck Homestead.

Joseph Putnam Henck was born May 5, 1918, in Los Angeles, the eldest of four children of Joseph Henck and the former Mary Putnam, one of the first female vice principals in Los Angeles schools. Joseph was also the general contractor for Santas Village in the 1950’s. 

…a few bits of information about Putty and his family:

  • The Henck family were true pioneers to our mountains moving here in the early 1920’s.
  • They were responsible for building and managing Santa’s Village in Sky Forest.
  • Putty was a “Citizen of the Year of the Lake Arrowhead Communities Chamber.
  • His folks built the first school (there is one named after a Henck fam. member; Mary Putman Henck) & fire department
  • First family to run water and electricity to our mountains.
  • Our Lake Arrowhead Village Visitors Center is named in Putty’s honor

What Exactly is ALA… And Why do they Manage Lake Arrowhead?

Are you one of those who keeps hearing all the locals use the term ALA?  It probably sounds something like this, “I have to pay my ALA dues,” or “don’t forget to bring the ALA card when we go to the beach.”  Remember that here in Lake Arrowhead we are a private Lake and all the homeowners in “Arrowhead Woods” like it that way.   (Click here to read my blog on Arrowhead Woods)

Below you will find info that I pulled directly from the ALA website: http://www.ala-ca.org/page/24073~502845/Welcome:

If you have any further questions, please call ALA and they will be happy to help.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to Golf? Do you love to donate money to charity? Then stop what you are doing and sign up for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Twin Peaks Station 12th GOLF TOURNAMENT! Monday October 6, 2014

For those of you who do not know, my husband and I are volunteers for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Search and Rescue.  (See Picture below) This is the two of us at our Basic Training camp.  I wear my orange shirt proud and can honestly say that I am honored to be apart of such an incredible team and family.

In case you were wondering… Search and Rescue is 100% volunteer, NO ONE GETS PAID! Every penny donated to the Rim of the World SAR team is 100% used by the team to help pay for uniforms, equipment and tools needed to be successful searchers. These uniforms are not cheap, so every donation counts and we are forever grateful.

Here are a few of us at the Mountain Top Days Parade in Running Springs.

This tournament benefits 4 volunteer units: Citizens on Patrol, Deputy Reserves, Explorer Scouts and Search and Rescue.  These 4 organizations are apart of the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department.

For info on the Golf Tournament please see the flyer below.  This event takes place at the Lake Arrowhead Country Club and includes an awards banquet dinner.

Golf Tournament

On behalf of RIM SAR I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support and donations! If you are unable to attend the tournament or you don’t like to golf, you can still donate money and help benefit all 4 volunteer services.  Please contact the Sheriff’s department in Twin Peaks for more info.

Thank you again and Happy Golfing!

This Agent Gives Toilet Paper as a Close Gift

Every once in a while you meet a client or clients who touch your heart. Most of the time you needed
them more than they needed you.

Although I may still be “new” in the business, every transaction makes me grow and my knowledge of the business becomes more clear. In this particular transaction I learned about loans and how they can affect you and the client. I do find it important to do research and ask around before choosing your loan officer.

Today, I had the honor of presenting a set of keys to a very happy new home owner. This was one of those we hit it off right away and knew we would be friends forever type of clients… I’m not kidding!

These 2 pictures are are my happy moments in Real Estate. I will always remember the client who said he just used his “last dime” on his new house and wouldn’t be able to afford toilet paper… (You had to be there, it’s an inside joke and yes I really did buy him toilet paper!)

Congrats Carmen and welcome to Lake Arrowhead, I look forward to many fun days and nights in the future with you and Penny!



Don’t worry, Chef has soda water, and of course I have Champagne!
