FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL
Not sure now many remember this rom-com movie title from 1994 but that is exactly what happened in our building. We had four weddings and a funeral. On the fourth floor, four couples got married and one owner died. Is there something special on the fourth floor? Obviously, it was lucky for eight people. Maybe there are floors with similar love stories, but nobody is bragging about it. Love in the age of the pandemic! Can’t make this stuff up!
Speaking of the building’s demographic, Pacific Tower has changed a lot in the past ten years. What was once a building of longtime owners of advanced age, is now a building of young people surfing and starting families. One young PT mom, Yuka Asada has started a parent network to share baby and toddler info and items. And while the group has suspended in-person get-togethers since the pandemic, they hope to resume play dates in the near future. To connect with Yuka call or text 312.401.2171.
FIDDLING ON THE ROOF
In case you’re wondering what happened to our soon-to-be-built roof? Welp… again and again, there’s a hitch in it. The short of it: After getting almost all our very complicated ducks in order, all the building supplies are on back order! When would we get these precious supplies? Maybe three months, but they make no promises. Are we going to build a roof in the middle of the rainy season? Hell no. Therefore, it seems like our new roof won’t materialize till the summer of ’22.
Holiday decorations are permitted from Halloween season through New Year’s Eve. After that all decorations and string lights are not allowed.
I SEE LONDON, I SEE FRANCE
A gentle reminder for those who forgot, hanging your laundry or your towels or your wetsuit over your railing to dry is a NO-NO. The Rules and Regulations are clear on this. Laundry racks are also against the rules. And you cannot deny it is unsightly. We appreciate your cooperation.
Pacific Tower Homeowner’s Association has a monthly meeting, usually the third Tuesday of every month and if you are an owner, you’re invited! Meet your Board and neighbors. Find out where your $540 is going. We’d love to have you! If you get bored, you’re welcome to leave – no pressure.
Since the pandemic, we’ve held our meetings on Zoom instead of gathering in- person in the Rec Room and many owners have taken advantage of participating virtually from the comfort of their units. Pajamas are permitted if not too sexy.
At the beginning of each meeting, homeowners are invited to ask questions of the Board, raise issues or lodge complaints for five minutes per person.
If you have a computer and would like to get a Zoom invitation for the next meeting, please email Keisha@phoac.com. If you don’t have a computer, you can still join the meeting by phone. Meeting announcement posted in the Lobby 4 days before the meeting gives the Zoom Meeting phone number so you can join by phone.
President – Mark Cabaj, Vice President - Karyl Miller, Secretary – Julie Menas, Treasurer – Anthony Mariucci, Directors – Troy Krich, George Kyrala, and Robin Del Pape.

Covid Updates and Rules
As of this writing no one in the building has caught Covid. Yay! But Delta is in the air. Everyone is asked to be careful. It ain’t over till it’s over. Social distance is still a good thing and so are masks. At least have a mask at the ready. Thank you.
