Annual meeting and picnic

Join your neighbors for our annual meeting and picnic on Saturday, June 29th, 2 p.m. at the triangular field located between East Grandview Drive and Post Road near the Smith Road entrance to the neighborhood.

Plan to bring a picnic lunch for your family and a dish to share. A blanket or chairs are also recommended. There will be plenty of room for kids of all ages to run around and play games. This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors better.

Along with the picnic, we will also conduct our annual meeting. Two major items of business will be conducted at the meeting:

1) Elections

  • Two offices are up for election, president and member-at-large
  • Offices are for a 2 year term
  • Any member of a dues paying household can hold an office
  • Duties of officers are outlined in the Bylaws, but essentially include 2 to 3 meetings (often conducted via email) per year and organizing 1 neighborhood activity.
  • Volunteering for an office is a great way to get more involved in the neighborhood.
2) Readopting the Bylaws
  • Bylaws are posted here
  • We will also be voting on an amendment proposed last year, which reads "GHNA meetings shall have quorum of either 10 Votes or a majority of Voting households present, whichever is fewer." 
Voting members are any member of a household that has paid the voluntary $1 annual dues for the year ending June 30th. Each household has 1 vote. If you have paid your dues, please try to attend so we can reach quorum for the meeting.

2013 garage sales

The later date seems to agree with lots of folks. I have 16 households that indicated they would be participating this year. Hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow.

The garage/yard sale is scheduled from 8-1. Signs will be posted at each entrance to the neighborhood. Each house that is participating should post their own sign at their house.
