Trunk -or- Treat
November 1, 2018
Due to my work schedule, I don't get many opportunities to attend River Ridge events so I was very excited to be able to attend the Trunk or Treat at the Chapel this year and I have to admit that I had a blast. There were so many cute costumes, games, tons of candy, baked goods and even hot dogs. Our resident DJ, Justin Linke, was there with some Halloween music to liven the mood.
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Trunk or Treat and for allowing me to be part of this event. If the kids had half as much fun as I did, it was a complete success. I also want to thank Rose Phelps for allowing me the use of her new camera so I could film the event. Dear Santa: Please bring me a camera like hers.
Please be sure to visit the Photo Album page and view all the photos for the 2018 Trunk -or- Treat.

The nice lady holding this little cutie pie is my sister-in-law Colleen. She requested that I not show her picture or tell anyone who she is so I won't mention her name.
I wish I knew the name of the person who rescued these pups so I can thank them personally. If you are reading this I want to say thank you so much for being a decent human being and keeping these girls from becoming road kill or "Purina Vulture Chow".
New Forum Added
September 20, 2018
Ray Shepard is one of our new Board members and is in charge of Communications. He asked me to set up an area of the website where he and property owners could communicate with one another. The easiest way to do this was to start a new forum just for this purpose.
A new forum entitled "Board of Directors" has been opened. This is still in the experimental stages so please be patient while we work out the bugs.
Our goal is to provide a place for property owners to address their concerns to the Board without having to wait for the next monthly meeting. Property owners will be able to ask questions, express their concerns, offer suggestions, volunteer to help, etc., via the new forum.
You will be addressing members of the River Ridge Board of Directors so all rules that apply at the Board meetings will also apply in this forum as well as the forum rules. Forum registration is NOT required for posting on the new forum but you ARE required to post your name and lot number.

Around 1:00 AM today we received a 911 call where the caller, once again, gave the dispatcher his/her lot number and road name instead of their 911 address. Because the 911 dispatcher and Security were given the incorrect information, the emergency vehicles were dispatched to the wrong address. Three of our Security staff, Bill Phelps, Bubba Murphy and Crystal Linke, were scurrying around in the snow and rain trying to find the person who needed an ambulance. Luckily, they were able to locate the correct address.
Your lot number is NOT the same as your 911 address!
If you are unsure of your 911 address, please use the 911 Address Search and find it now. Write it down and keep it near your phone or somewhere easily accessible like your refrigerator door. In the middle of the night when you need help, is not the time to try and figure out where you live.
There are over 1500 lots in River Ridge and with the correct information we can find them all, however, if you don't know where you live then neither do we!
Fire In Hare Village
February 26, 2018
There was a fire in Hare Village early this morning at lots 105 and 106 involving a truck, golf cart, camper and the woods around camper. Fortunately there were no injures. Damages could have been much worse had it not been for the property owner at 171 Hare who spotted the fire and called 911. Thank you to the Lake Gaston Fire Department, River Ridge Security Team and the property owner of 171 H.
Emergency Calls and 911 Addresses
December 29, 2017
A new page has been added to the website!
We are still having problems with property owners not knowing their 911 address. When you make a 911 call for fire or rescue, we are not always notified by the 911 dispatcher. Sometimes our only notice is from the first responder when they are about 3-5 minutes from River Ridge. This requires some scurrying from Security, especially if the call comes in at 3:00 AM when everyone is asleep.
During an emergency it's easy to get discombobulated and give the dispatcher your lot number and street name. This causes major confusion when we are given the address and can cause a delay in getting help to your location.
In the event of an emergency, the 911 dispatcher will require your 911 address.
Your lot number is NOT the same as your 911 address.
I have added a new button in the yellow menu column (to your left) so you can look up your 911 address by your lot number. If you are unsure of your address, please check it here. Simply enter your lot number to find your 911 addresss. You should write down this information and keep it next to your phone or in a place where it is easily accessible, like your refrigerator door.
