July 2nd Meeting Summary

At our General Membership Meeting elections were held for three board seats. Rick Bremer, Jim Phillips and Pete DeFina were all reelected for three year terms. ¬†Board officers were elected by the board after the Membership Meeting. Rosemary Barry will again be serving as President along with Joe DeMarco as Vice-President. Pete DeFina will remain as Secretary and Phil Dooley will continue as Treasurer until next July’s meeting.

There was a discussion and vote on the Incidental Business Draft. After the discussion, the draft was unanimously passed by a vote of 27-0. A copy of it is on the website under “Governance”.

The pavilion is nearing completion and will be used at the picnic. Loyd Brewer and Phil Dooley were thanked for building it. Joe DeMarco helped as well. An appeal was made for donations so we can take advantage of the generous matching fund offer from Eric Johanson.  (See previous post).

The Adopt A Road program has added new volunteers. The list will be placed in the next newsletter.

There was another appeal for the 150 lot project and there were quite a few people who signed up. By the end of the day we had reached 115 people in the project. I strongly urge all of you to read the documents on this website, then download and complete the forms. The notary form must be used as that is what Essex County will accept to verify your signature. The other form tells us what parcels will be added to the project. We can look up the tax ID number for you. Email me if you have questions.

We are looking for volunteers to help Jim Phillips replace the neighborhood signs. Please let me know if you can help and I will pass your name and contact information on to him.

The new water tank is slated for completion in early November.

The complete minutes from the October 10 meeting have been posted. The minutes are only posted after they are approved by members at the following meeting.

Enjoy the summer.

Rosemary Barry, AAPOA President
