Thank you!!! Neighborhood Cleanup 2020
A special thank you to each resident who participated in the Neighborhood Clean-up last Saturday. We were delighted to ha e so many persons actively involved. Paul Quall's cookout was a welcome conclusion for the work day. Denise Peabody did a great job of listing tasks that needed to be done.
The HOA board members are well aware of interest in the opening of the swimming pool. We are seeking information and guidance from a variety of credible sources including the state, county, city, the neighborhood alliance and other HOA's. We will meet soon to determine what is in the best interest of those who choose to use the pool. We expect some changes from previous summers due to the prevailing circumstances with Corona virus. Also, we had decided months ago to make some needed repairs in and around the pool in preparation for opening this summer. We want your pool experience to be safe, relaxing and pleasant.
This year's annual Clayton Pond HOA meeting that was scheduled in March was postponed, and soon we will announce a new date and place for the meeting.
The Great Adventurous Bear Hunt!
Prizes, Prizes, Prizes
There will be a "Great Bear" hunt initiated each Monday in April, hosted by one home. This home will provide clues as to where this bear is located. The "Great Bear" will be up to all kinds of antics during the week. The child to find this "Great Bear" first and submit the address in the link will be entered into a drawing for "The Great Bear Finder"
All other homes will continue to move their bears around each day. If you don't have a bear, a photo or drawing will work also.
Check here each Monday in April for the “Great Bear” clues and story. Submit your photos, drawings with age and “Great Bear” address below.
Provide the name of the child, age and address for the “Great Bear” by clicking on the link below. For all prize categories, please be sure to include the child's name and address.
1. The "Great Bear" Finder
2. Best photo
3. Best Drawing by age categories
Prizes and Drawings will be given out at a special Bear Hunt Party some time in May, when we are given the all clear to gather.
Please participate to make this a fun time for the kids and families in our neighborhood. As always, ideas are welcome.
One last note: please instruct the kids to not touch the bears if they are outside.
March Board Meeting and our
DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS
I continue to be amazed at the work this group of people contribute to the care of this neighborhood technically called "The Village on Clayton Pond".
Budgets, accounting, contracts, negotiating bids, lawn care, pond care, volunteer work....this list could go on. It can be a very rewarding job taking care our community and it is an important one.
In my mind, it seems we are becoming a neighborhood of front yard dwellers, where neighbors are invited to sit a while, even if just to take in the beauty of the neighborhood. As I walk along the streets, I love to see open back yards, beautifully landscaped offering a nice backdrop to the ponds, benches thoughtfully placed with pillows to celebrate the seasons and chairs that harken to come and sit a while.
Our little neighborhood that people seek out to become a part of, truly is The Village on Clayton Pond.
If you would like to be a part of making this an even greater place to live, we welcome you to find out more.
