Thank you for visiting! On behalf of the Mutual 14 Board of Directors, welcome to our Mutual 14 website. Feel free to explore the many features available on the site.
The purpose of the website is to improve communications and allow residents to quickly and easily find information about the happenings within our Mutual. The site will only be as good as we make it, so please contribute any feedback you think would be helpful and let us know what would make the site more useful to you.
Welcome to our Mutual 14 website. We hope you find it informative and useful.
This year, your board began tackling our Mutual's problems, needs, and projects quickly. We've fielded an energetic team of seven committee chairs and their committee members plus our new secretary/parliamentarian to work on our Mutual's behalf.
We're taking on everything from timely major infrastructure projects, such as roofing, painting and plumbing to more personal projects such as getting our caregivers registered and ensuring we will be prepared in an emergency.
We also hope to offer a couple of great, social get-togethers, in addition to our recent Mutual 14 picnic.
I'm proud to be part of this team and to support its efforts to the best of my ability.
We hope you will consider visiting at least a couple of our board meetings this year to get a taste of the new, fresh flavor of our community's civic life.
We're here to serve our Mutual and your needs so don't be afraid to give any one of us a call during regular weekly business hours. If you have an emergency at other times, don't hesitate to call me or any of the other board members if I'm not available.
We want to say thanks for this great new website, so ably hosted by Mutual 14 Webmaster Phil Arnold.
And finally, our appreciation goes out to the more than two dozen volunteers who've stepped up to join board committees this year and to our wonderful building captains, the foundation of everything we do.

A WWII veteran earned his High School diploma at 91, 74 years after dropping out.
When asked what happens next, he said "College Girls".
While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.
The old farmer said, "Well, as I see it, most politicians are 'Post Turtles'.'
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.
The old farmer said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."
The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb idiot put him up there to begin with."
