Hadleigh Woods Gazette

“These are the times that try men’s souls”…and patience, and shovels and backs, and, yes, our pocketbooks.  (Think of the next heating bill?) Scientists say that the northern ice cap is melting at an alarming rate.  They claim it’s heading South.  But here!!!!  I guess I’ll have to read Al Gore’s book!

Keep warm.  It’s time for hot beverages, cozy fires, soup and get-togethers. Bring out the cards, scrabble, dominoes and old-fashioned movies. Call it “neighborhood warming” and watch out for one another. Cheers

 Important Association News

From the President and the Board

 

New Board – Marian Spahn (President), Roger Labrecque (Vice President), Ed Schroeder (Treasurer), Nancy Gritti (Secretary), and Domenic Sarcia (Director).  Domenic is the “go to” person for any snow plowing issues, but if you have any questions or concerns on any subject, do not hesitate to contact any one of your board members.  If we do not know the answer, we will always follow up.

Snow – As much as some of us enjoy outdoor winter activities, this is more than we bargained for!  Please remember to be especially careful driving through our community and out of our driveways.  The high (and growing) snow banks make it extremely difficult to see oncoming cars.

Please remove your vehicle from the overflow parking area as soon as reasonably possible to allow B & C to complete the plowing of these areas.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

Due to the record-breaking amount of snow we are receiving this winter, we have had to spend more money than budgeted.  Depending on what mother-nature decides for us, we may have to have a special assessment to move the mounds of snow elsewhere.  The board will keep you informed if that occurs.

Treasurer’s Report – As of January 31, 2011 we have $210,958.77 in our various accounts and all invoices for January were paid.  Thank you to our previous board for the good financial shape in our accounts.

Our Cottage

The Library at the Cottage is now open!  - Fiction books are filed alphabetically by author.  Work on a non-fiction section is still in progress.  Donations of books are always welcome.  We hope you visit soon to see the large selection of books available for your enjoyment.

Key Cabinet – please place your keys and emergency contact information into the Board mailbox in the Cottage. To date, we have 8 unit owners that we have no key or emergency contact information.

 Team Maintenance

Short of fire, nothing causes more damage to the inside than leaking water. It is estimated that 65% of property damage to community associations is caused by water leaking from failing pipes, hoses, plumbing fixtures and appliances. Washing machine water valves should be closed after each wash. However, if the faucets are not closed regularly and if they are not properly maintained, closing them could become impossible. Corrosion and mineralization can lock them up tight. Also, only use burst proof washer hoses.

Caution: Be aware that snow may build up against the building and cover the heating system’s vent. Your heating system will not operate if the exhaust is blocked.
