The Charbonneau Villager Charbonneau Homeowner's Association CHOA President JAN LANDIS Today, as I write this, I am in the desert. I just golfed in the Charbonneau in the Desert Golf Tournament and loved reconnect- ing with friends from the Char- bonneau District of Wilsonville. First, I realized how much I had missed seeing these people. Then, I realized how much like family we all are. Hugs were abundant. In a world where we read or witness on television such unrest and anger, it is nice to re- member that there are good peo- ple who just enjoy being together. This month’s theme - “Earth Day” - started in 1970 with a pos- itive group of individuals, Repub- licans and Democrats, rich and poor, city slickers and farmers, tycoons and labor leaders. “It was a gamble,” Gaylord Nelson (Earth Day founder) re- called. “But it worked.” Doesn’t that remind you of Charbonneau? There is so much we can do as we work together in Charbonneau and Wilsonville. Think about that as we go into the growing season of 2018, what can we do for Char- bonneau or Wilsonville? For Charbonneau Homeown- ers Association (CHOA), I want to remind you that our annual meeting will be at the Charbon- neau Clubhouse on April 30 at 7 pm. This is an important meeting for all CHOA residents to attend. Just like those individuals who started Earth Day in 1970, we all have an opportunity to come together to work toward the im- provement of our community. I hope to see you all there!

The S&P 500 Index is a broad-based, unmanaged measurement of changes in stock market conditions based on 500 widely held common stocks. One cannot invest directly in an index. The Fund may invest in value stocks, which are subject to risk that their intrinsic value may never be realized, and growth stocks, which may b e susceptible to rapid price swings. Investments in mid-sized companies generally carry greater risk than is customarily associated with larger companies. Moreover, if the Fund’s portfolio is over- weighed in a sector, any negative development affecting that sector will have a greater impact on the Fund than a fund that is not overweighed in that sector.
