THE VILLAGE ON CLAYTON POND
Clayton Pond was established in 1991 as a zoned single-family neighborhood in Edmond, Oklahoma. The subdivision is conveniently located off 2nd Street west of IH-35. It is a short commute to Tinker Air Force Base (approx. 21 miles) and downtown Oklahoma City (approx. 18 miles). Edmond is home to the University of Central Oklahoma and Oklahoma Christian University.
Clayton Pond homeowners enjoy a neighborhood pool and six ponds with beautiful common areas. The ponds are stocked with bass, crappie, catfish, and bluegill. The neighborhood is located within the Edmond Public School district and is served by Will Rogers Elementary School, Central Middle School, and Edmond Memorial High School.

2019 BOARD MEMBERS
My wife Sue and I have lived in Clayton Pond for eleven years having moved here from Pampa, Texas, after retiring as education administrators. We also have lived in Fresno, CA, Savannah, GA, and Longview, TX. We moved to Edmond because our only child, Susan Redwine, and her family had settled in this area.
Since living in Edmond, I have served on the HOA board for some time. During that time I have served on committees including the By-laws revision committee last year. I have been involved in several "clean-up" days, and I have led the annual Kids' Fishing Derby.
My interest in our HOA continues as I have attended board meetings while not on the board. I am willing to serve again on the board so that together we can accomplish some goals that will improve the quality of life in our community. Some future goals will be presented during the April 13 annual meeting.
I appreciate the good neighbors who reside in Clayton Pond, and I welcome input that can benefit our way of life.

I have lived here over 20 years at 109 Berkshire.
I work for the Land O Lakes corporation managing a chemical warehouse operations
side of the Oklahoma City business.
Even though I have always been willing to help when asked, I have yet to be willing
to be on the board. I feel that I need to do my part in this neighborhood to keep our
properties at their peek values. I will be a voice of reason and responsibility and protect
I will look forward to seeing all at the annual meeting.

My husband Ray, daughter Stephannie, and I own the home at 200 N. Clayton Road. Since purchasing the home, we have spent our spare time working on the house and the yard.
I retired as Assistant State Superintendent, Office of School Improvement, at the Oklahoma Department of Education.
Thank you for giving me a meaningful mission in my retirement by allowing me to serve on the Clayton Pond Board.
Our son Robert, his wife Julie, and their daughters Carly and Macy live a couple of miles from us. Our daughter Shannon, her husband John, and our 3 grandchildren have just received military orders bringing them back from Japan to Charlottesville, Virginia.
I have served on the Board this past year and it has been my goal to be a good steward of the HOA dues and be mindful of all of the areas that the Board oversees.
I am pleased to announce that the By-laws are filed at the Oklahoma County Court House. It is time to revisit the Covenants and bring them up-to-date. If elected, I will accept that challenge.
I live at 108 Berkshire Dr. My husband Gary and I bought our new home in Clayton Pond 23 years ago. We have 3 children, Kim, Melissa and Justin who spent part, or most of their childhood
growing up in Clayton Pond, all three graduated from Edmond North High School. All three children are now married and have given us 6 wonderful grandchildren.
My husband Gary and I are both from Southern California; Gary is from Arcadia, California,and I am from Fontana, California. We met in Physical Therapy School at the University of Oklahoma and have

Gary will celebrate 30 years with McBride PT Outpatient Clinic and I have worked part time mostly at Mercy Hospital (home health, in patient and outpatient) but am presently employed part time at Mid Del PT orthopedic outpatient clinic in Del City, OK. I have also taught piano lessons for 20 years in Edmond.
I have been active in the HOA as part of the landscape committee, (you will often see me in the flowerbeds!) an at large HOA member, and Secretary of the Clayton Pond HOA for the last 2 years. I would be honored to be considered for re-election to the HOA board. My goal is to contribute in any way I can to help Clayton Pond remain a great community to live in!
Charlotte moved to Edmond almost 25 years ago with husband Christian, son Brent and daughter Erin. Brent and Erin ended up going to OU and OSU, respectively, so the house has been fondly divided for years. Two granddaughters (ages 6 and 3) who live only a few miles away brighten the Goddard doorsteps often.
Charlotte's career began in her birthplace Houston as a kindergarten school teacher. Over the years, her professional life has included Public Information for Houston's Airport System, Public Relations for Southwest Airlines in Dallas. Her career in OK started with pharmaceutical sales and she has worked for Syneos Health for 20 years and is now retired.

J.C. Polliard-at large
I would like to be on the board in order to promote a Christ centered organization and a more welcoming and enjoyable neighborhood for all the residents. I hope to serve the residents of Clayton Pond by helping to balance the needs of individual homeowners with the overall needs of the community, in a way that honors the Lord.
2. We have lived in Clayton Pond just over a year now, since January of 2017. Our family enjoys fishing at the ponds and swimming at the pool. We have participated in the Easter egg hunt and look forward to more community events.
3. My wife Jennifer and I live on Devon Dr. with our youngest son and our two daughters (ages 11 and 6). Our oldest son and his wife are expecting our first grand-baby this summer. I am fortunate to help do my part in support of our great country as a systems analyst at Tinker AFB. The majority of my free time is spent playing with our kids and working with Jennifer to remodel and landscape our new home. In the future, I hope to spend more time singing and playing guitar.
