2.  NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT AND 2020 QUARTERLY ASSESSMENT TIMELINEThese documents have been either hand delivered, mailed, emailed, or you picked them up at the annual meeting.  They may also be found on the website.

3.  REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS.  The Communications Committee is looking for a volunteer or two to help with the message board updates at both entrances.  The Pool and Social Committees are in great need of some additional volunteers to help make the activities they are responsible for a success.  My thanks to those who have stepped up to help in the last few months – truly appreciate that.  We need some more to try and lessen the load – please consider providing your name to help.

4.  SOCIAL EVENT SURVEY.  We distributed a survey at the annual meeting and received some excellent feedback.  The survey is attached or a link provided.  Please fill the survey in and return it to myself,, or

5.  2019-2020 SNOW REMOVAL POLICY.  Please see the website for the document.   Reminder, the snow emergency curbs are in effect for the season.  Our towing contractor will tow your vehicle if the curbs have been designated a no parking zone during major snow events.

Good afternoon y’all. I don’t normally send these out in such a short turn-around but two items are in my immediate focus – the other two are along for the ride.

I just wanted to thank those who attended our meeting last night – I trust it was informative for you. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. My thanks on behalf of the Board and personally to Diane, Christy, Susan, Taylor, TJ and Joe for their help in a variety of ways to undertake the preparations necessary for the event. To all the Directors, thank you for your help and guidance throughout the year and specifically last night for your support from setup to teardown.

TOMORROW MORNING – the more hands the faster this can be accomplished. We need to ready the pool house for the holiday social (just one week away). Please consider coming to help us set up the lighting on the pool house, on the fences, and on the trees. The rain should hold off till afternoon.

As long as we had enough people show up to do the preparations, we invite you to please come enjoy the start of our holiday season at the pool parking lot. As with last couple of years, please consider adding an ornament or two to the trees on November 30th or December 1st. The trees will be lit at or shortly after 5:00PM. For those who are able, we request you to bring holiday cookies down to the social to share with all those attending. Hot cider and hot chocolate will be provided …. along with a few RAFFLE prizes…..

And as this is still a November message….. Glass recycling in NO LONGER supported for curbside pickup in Fairfax County. Recycling containers that contain glass are now considered contaminated and should not be picked up. Please see the following articles for further information – including a map to the purple containers Fairfax County has placed for glass recycling if you wish to utilize that method for recycling.
