Welcome to

The Village of Winding Trails

Hello Village of Winding Trails!!!

The Holiday season will be here before we know it and now is the time to start making plans.
If you are new to the neighborhood or have never had a chance to meet neighbors this is a perfect time to get involved!!


Every year the subdivision celebrates with a Progressive cocktail party! We need volunteers to help coordinate the event in addition to 2-3 neighbors to open their homes for some holiday cheer. Everyone starts at one house for cocktails and light appetizers then moves to the next house for more cocktails and snacks. The third/last stop we have drinks and desserts. Guests contribute the food and beverages. You just provide the space! The date will be determined by those that open their homes. The earlier we know a date the sooner we can send out a “Save the Date”! Please let us know ASAP if you are interested in either coordinating, or opening your home. Please contact Nan Trecker at 636-346-7698 or nanettetrecker@yahoo.com if you have any questions or want to volunteer in helping make the progressive party a success!


The homes of Winding Trails will once again be lit up with luminaries this year. Kim Gay and Christy Ehrenreich have volunteered to coordinate. We have always had great participation! Even if you are out of town, we will make sure your luminaries are placed and lit. It is very festive to see our neighborhood glowing! Additional details will be sent out as the date draws near. Please contact Kim or Christy if you would like to assist them!


Please come and join your neighbors for a Cookie Exchange.
Tuesday, December 19th
7:00 PM
at the home of Dana Fenster
1910 Larimer Drive

Please bring four dozen of your favorite cookies, along with copies of the recipe to share. Bring a container with you to take some cookies home. Enjoy visiting, appetizers and a drink.

If baking isn't going to work for you, still join us for a fun evening. You do not have to participate in the exchange. We would be happy to have you share in the holiday spirit!

Ladies, the college and post-graduate girls have enjoyed seeing everyone at this event. If they are home for the holidays, they are always welcome, too!

10 Charities Overpaying their For-Profit Fundraisers.

These 10 charities are not living up to their missions. Each spends more than 50% of its budget paying for-profit fundraising professionals to solicit your hard-earned money. They are ranked by the percentage of their total functional expenses spent on professional fundraising fees. As a result, very little of the charity's spending is directed towards its programs and services. You are making donations to pay the telemarketers!

Charity Program Expenses Professional Fundraising Fees

1 Disabled Veterans Associations 94.3%
2 Children's Charitable Foundation 87.3%
3 Disabled Police Officers Counseling Center 85.7%
4 Firefighters Charitable Foundation 84.4%
5 Law Enforcement Education Program 84.1%
6 Operation Lookout 82.2%
7 Children's Charity Fund, Inc. 78.5%
8 Wishing Well Foundation USA 78.3%
9 Coalition Against Breast Cancer 75.9%

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until you turn it off.

It will go off from most everywhere inside your house. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around.

You can get your Credit Report for Free - but not if you go to the websites you see advertised which give you a "free" credit report. For example from a website: "When you order your free report here, you will begin your free trial membership.... If you don't cancel your membership within the 7-day trial period, you will be billed $14.95 for each month that you continue your membership."  And yes, you have to give them your credit card number up front!

Click on the picture to go to the only website I know where your credit report is Free. You can request and obtain a free credit report once every 12 months from each of the three nationwide consumer credit reporting companies in accordance with the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act. Order a credit report for yourself every four months, first from Equifax, then from Experian and then from TransUnion. Married? That's six free credit reports a year.
