Sadly, a family in Seven Bar North has lost lost their home. Thankfully, there were no injuries.
Please consider helping the Sanchez family as they deal with this terrible loss.
Dubra Karnes-Padilla has been appointed to the National Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) – Patient, Family Advisory Board (PFAB). PBAB is a new initiative by the ACHA to advise the ACHA Board and better serve those CHD patients and families in our country in eight designated regions. It is a three year term, and she will be one of two representatives for the Mountain Region. She wants everyone to know about the important work ACHA is doing. One in every 100 babies is born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD). CHD is the number one birth defect. 1.4 million Americans have CHD, and this population grows by 5% annually. As those living with CHD grow up and transition into adulthood, they will need specialized care by trained congenital cardiologists, from infancy and youth, adulthood and into advanced age. ACHA is there to advocate for and educate those with CHD and their families. Adult Congenital Heart Association – Home – ACHA (achaheart.org)

Seven Bar North Estates celebrated Cinco de Mayo with our 2nd annual Pet Parade. There were treats – both human and canine – and prizes galore! Thank you neighbors. A great time was had by all!
Spring is here! Along with the beautiful spring blooms we get to enjoy, there are also those pesky weeds that need plucking. Violation letters will resume on April 1st.
