River Flood Watch

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Cowlitz river at Packwood and Randle. Follow this link for the latest information

Cowlitz River

I will attempt to update this area as things develop, however keep in mind that I live on Coal Creek. The creek is very high as well, although not as high as during the Nov.’06 flood.

If you are coming to Packwood tonight or tomorrow be prepared for flooded roads in Randle and parts of Packwood.

Labor Day Events

Labor Day weekend is upon us. This year we have multiple events planned.

Pool Update

We hope you have been to see the new and improved swimming pools. They really are beautiful.

As a reminder, please be sure to wear your new wristbands when at the pool or using the tennis courts, etc. This lets everyone know that you belong.

Also, please don’t bring any glass, ceramic, etc. into the pool enclosure. This is probably our biggest violation of the state mandated rules. This includes beer bottles in a cooler. If there is breakage, we must drain both pools, clean all areas to be sure of glass removal and then refill. This is very costly and would shut down the pools for some time. And, all costs for this would be charged to the home owner who brought in the glass.

If you see someone with glass please have them remove it from the area.


Annual Dues are Due

Have you paid your annual dues? If not, they are due. You should have received an email with your annual dues statement sometime near the end of January. Please check your spam/junk folders for your statement. If you don’t use email, then you should have received via regular mail. Remember, you won’t be able to pick up your pool tags if your dues have not been paid.

Call or email our bookkeeper if you haven’t received your statement.

Dues should be mailed to: TCA, PO Box 488, Gig Harbor, WA 98335
