ARE YOU READY TO SERVE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD IN A MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN 2020?
Your participation, ideas and leadership are needed to help effectively manage our property and keep our neighborhood connected.
Open positions with no incumbent are:
1St Vice President: This position is the liaison with the city, main point of contact for our Trash & Recycling (which includes managing the contract and coordinating our bulky pick up dates), and also will be eligible for the President role in 2021.
Social Chairperson: Coordinate the planning of ‘all ages’ events for the community with the help of volunteer social committee members. (Easter Egg Hunt, Block Party, Adult Night, Bike Parade, etc.)
Please reach out to any current board member for additional insight or information for these two positions.
The pool area will be getting some additional sturdy table and chairs to ring in next pool season. For questions or concerns regarding the pool, a pool key, or info about renting the pool, please contact Michelle Kring at email@example.com.
