An act of kindness from young residents of Harbor Hills

A few wonderful young residents of Harbor Hills, Morgan and Alex Girard, and new resident twins Lauren and Camden Coe, decided to lend a helping hand to the unfortunate victims of Hurricane Katrina by selling lemonade, icees, and cookies on Harbor Hills Blvd. Their proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Other On-going Katrina Related Activities Include: Non-perishable food items, as well as hygiene products are being collected in front of the Harbor Hills Pro Shop to send to the Gulf Coast. Links to provide monetary donations to the Red Cross can be found on both the Harbor Hills website and Blog. Additionally, please check back for details on the upcoming Casino Night that will directly benefit the adopted employees at the Country Club of Mobile.


The beautiful foyer in the Castello is both inviting and impressive. The beautiful tile rosone pictured above and many others are available in the design center. Be sure to inquire during your design center session. Posted by Picasa
