January Newsletter 


Happy January 2023! Your Horseshoe Bay POA Board of Directors sincerely wishes you a healthy and happy new year. As we start a new calendar year and we reflect upon what has been accomplished up to this point, there has been quite notable progress in our agenda. Different committees were set in place to work on critical and overdue projects in an effort to maintain and enhance our neighborhoods as well as building a strong community core.

We sought to make progress in different fronts. We have committed ourselves in attending monthly City Council Meetings in order to remain up to date in city governance matters. We have worked diligently to comply with relevant state laws by attending enrichment programs, maintaining legal counsel, improve internal processes by digitizing and coordinating records, consistently updating our website with current information and building social media platforms to help our community stay informed.

Our Capital Projects are in progress. We have developed a plan to update Fox Park starting with surveying the property so it can be properly fenced in order to respect the private property abutting the park. We are working with playground equipment companies in order to install modern and safe equipment; initiated the process to apply for available grants. Additionally, the aesthetic betterment of the different residential entrances in our community are underway.

December 2022 also brought to end a highly productive year on the first Centralized Mailbox Kiosk in HSB West. Phase 1 included the construction of the Kiosk at the Fire Department West location and mailbox keys distribution in an organized fashion to affected residents. Phase 2 will commence in early 2023 and we will continue to keep our members informed of the progress as we continue to develop other centralized locations.

Another important responsibility has been bringing the community together and community outreach. We have accomplished that by organizing engaging community events throughout the year. The Spring Fling, Independence Day, Fall Fest and Chili Cook Off and our Members' Holiday Event will continue to be organized on a yearly basis.

We welcome your involvement, your thoughts, your ideas and your continued support. We urge our residents to become involved, attend your POA monthly meetings to stay informed and volunteer. We look forward to a new year and the opportunities it will bring!

Horseshoe Bay POA Helpful Tips

The holiday season is here and we should all do our best to keep our homes safe and fun for all.

Here are some fun and useful tips to keep in mind:

  • Check gas lines, smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure everything is working properly.

  • Extinguish any open flames and switch off decorations before going to bed or while the room they are in is unsupervised.

  • Do not leave any cooking equipment on and unattended.

  • Familiarize yourself with how to safely extinguish small kitchen fires - using baking soda on grease fires for example.

  • Be aware of the dangers surrounding deep-frying turkeys.

At home, we love keeping warm with delicious soups and this hearty recipe will keep everyone warm and full all winter long. It requires just a few ingredients and very little work but the result is a rich and delicious meal that everyone will enjoy!


  • ½ pound ground pork
  • ½ pound ground turkey
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 large garlic cloves finely chopped or pressed, divided
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt & black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped onion
  • 3 cups chopped kale or 5 cups baby spinach
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can cannellini beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 8 cups of chicken broth


In a large bowl combine ground meat, panko, half of the parsley, egg, half of the garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Mix just until combined. Shape meat mixture into 1 ½-inch meatballs.

Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium until shimmering. Add half the meatballs in an even layer, and cook, without moving, until first side is dark brown, about 3 minutes. Using tongs, turn meatballs and cook until second side is well browned, about 3 minutes more. Transfer meatballs back to plate and repeat with remaining meatballs.

Heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil to now empty pot over medium until shimmering. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add remaining garlic cloves and cook 1 minute.

Add 8 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to medium and simmer 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in meatballs, kale and beans, simmer until kale is just wilted. Add remaining parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
