Following the annual request for submission of applications for board membership, the Shores HOA annual general meeting was held in November. Since there were no new applicants to run for the board, the following were returned to office by acclamation for the 2016/2017 calendar year and re-elected by your board members to the following positions:
David Littman – President
Estelle Morganstein – Vice-President
Diane Greenberg – Secretary
Pam Breier – Treasurer
Barbara Ladd – Member-At-Large
Joan Nicolazzo – Member-At-Large
Barbara retains responsibility for our community web site and is chairing the By Law Revision Committee; Joan is in charge of our Pest Control program.
Over the last 5 years, approximately 30% of our community of 106 units has changed ownership. In order to encourage attendance at our Homeowner Association meetings, the board has been holding several evening meetings to accommodate working residents, and is now sending email reminder blasts to everyone. Since each meeting covers the state of our finances, issues facing the Villages of the East and our Master Association (the POA), and our own community’s upkeep and well-being – including road repairs, roof issues, landscaping updates and structural painting and insurance among other concerns – every homeowner has a vested interest in keeping up-to-date with happenings in The Shores. Please make every effort to attend as many meetings as you can.
Our new mailboxes have now been installed in every cul de sac and we have received nothing but compliments on their appearance. Your HOA is now in the process of identifying potential improvements for the coming year and we will keep you advised as decisions are made.
News from your Aberdeen East VOE Board: a new heater in the Isles pool, new annual flowers beds at our main entrance and holiday decorations on display in the Club House. If you are interested in taking the Mature Driving Course (which can bring down your car insurance costs) being offered Feb. 23, from 9-4 PM, please sign up at the clubhouse.
We have recently lost some long-time residents. We would like to offer condolences to the Lewis, Kruger, Goldberg, Gee, Gettes and Jensen families.
On a happier note, welcome to Susan and Matthew Brennan, who recently purchased a unit in Court F, Evelyn and Gary Ambler, who moved into our community this summer and are busy renovating, and Darlene Pfeiffer, who moved up from further south.
A welcome back to all snowbirds and a happy and healthy holiday season to everyone!
