Thank you to the many, many EHN residents who helped make this such a successful and fun day. It was wonderful to have neighborhood veterans, new families, and happy kids. The task administration was superior this year – and we didn’t think Jim could possibly be more organized, but he beat his own high standards! Food and beverages were much appreciated and we were well sated and hydrated thanks to Faythe. Heroic efforts to launch and ground the spiffy dock by Paul and Steve. Cheery childcare, plenty of tools, and a hugely devoted crew. Our beautiful pond cannot be maintained without you all. Thank you again and again and ENJOY!
Date and Time: Saturday, Sept. 20, 4-6 pm.
Rain Date: Sunday, Sept. 21.
Please mark your calendars! Join the board and meet your neighbors at our annual barbecue and social. Hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers and beverages will be provided by the Association. Neighbors: side dishes, salads, and desserts.
May not have captured the work in progress at its peak, but look at the results!!! Many, many thanks to all who came out on Sunday and contributed in all ways. One neighbor commented it was the best attended clean up he’d ever been to and another that pond looked cleaner than it has in 30 years!
Date: Saturday, May 31 (rain date: Sunday, June 1)
Time: 10am – 1pm (come for as little or as long as you can!)
Location: Oak Knoll (Road) Pond
Join your neighbors, come out and meet folks, and get some exercise as we begin to get the pond and beach ready for summer swimming and picnics!
The Association Board is working hard on safe and appropriate pond and beach maintenance so that we may continue to enjoy all this unique neighborhood resource has to offer, but your help is needed!
Under the experienced and dedicated leadership of Board member, Jim Soper, we’ll paddle canoes on the water to rake up the weeds, collect on-shore debris in wheelbarrows for compost, spread new sand on the beach, and clear out the invasive plants so that the native species can thrive. Jim will also again this year teach people to identify invasive species.
Needed that day: Wheelbarrows, weed whackers, canoes, rakes, tarps, shovels, work gloves.
Refreshments will be provided by the Association.
KIDS WELCOME! (They has a great time helping last year – scroll down to see the photos!)
With so many families with young children moving into the neighborhood, Pippa Comfort, Elizabeth Lingo and Krisztina Filep are developing a google list-serv for sharing family-oriented activities/events and other resources.
