Then we stand and do Balance work and some more stretching and weight work for another 15 minutes followed by "sweat to the oldies" for some aerobics for the next 30 minutes!

Property Owners Service Association 
POSA is a service organization that provides residents with many activities to promote the welfare, education, and enhancement of our community. In 1978, the President of the POSA founded the “Hide-A-Way Country News” to keep residents, especially those out of town, informed of Club management activities and humaninterest stories. The tabloid-sized newspaper later became a broadsheet publication now known as the Hideaway News, which celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2013. Published under the auspices of the POSA, the newspaper is under the direction of an independent editor and publisher. The News is totally self-sufficient, with advertising defraying the expenses. The monthly publication is mailed at no charge to Hideaway residents. The telephone directory is another publication started by the POSA. The directory is managed under the same arrangement as the newspaper and is also produced and distributed with revenues obtained from advertising sales.
POSA now sponsors many activities throughout the year, including Spring and Fall Cleanup days for disposal of large unwanted items, “Meet the Candidates” forum with Club and City candidates, monthly Birthday and Anniversary night door prizes, an annual picnic in the park, and a holiday lighting contest. POSA is funded by donations and membership drives. It is $10 to join, and applications are available at the Club office.
