Important Yard Sale Information To All Yard Sale Participants: We have 45 homes that signed up for our yard sale!!!! Thank you! – Thank you very much!!! Advertising in Newspapers, bulletin boards and electronic signs will start this weekend and continue all week. Every participating home will get 4 things: a yard sale sign, a yard sale sign holder, a balloon, and a map of all participating yard sale locations including general information. We ask that you pick up the signs and balloons on FRIDAY June 22, 2018 between 4 and 5 pm at Henrich Hall. We suggest that you place the signs as close to the street as possible. The signs are yours to keep. Clean up after the yard sale needs to happen that same day, please and thank you !

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL RESIDENTS: The Rules/Bylaws Committee has been working very hard for the past 6 months to establish proposed rules for our Community! The rules are now done and ready to go out to all of you. They have been approved by our attorney and ROC USA and now need to be voted on by you! You should be receiving them very shortly. We are going to have an informal Question and Answer Session for anyone that has any questions about the proposed rules. (see Below) Please save these important dates:

SATURDAY, JUNE 30TH FROM 10:00AM - 2:00 PM to have your questions about proposed rule changes answered. This is not a official "meeting", just informational, just come ask your questions at your convenience, and leave when you choose to.

THURSDAY, JULY 12TH @ 7:00 PM @ CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH, ROUTE 58 IN HANSON (429 Monponsett St.) where you will vote on the proposed rules. We do need a quorum for this meeting and your vote is important!

 Bristol South Management Co. did their drive around inspection last Thursday. One very important thing that was pointed out needs to be addressed immediately. There are numerous homes with gas or charcoal grills on their porch or decks that has a roof over it. That is a fire hazard and needs to be corrected immediately! You're more than welcome to have grills on your porch or deck that does not have a roof or canopy over it. It would be very much appreciated if anyone that has one on a covered porch or deck to PLEASE move the grill to an open area when in use. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep us all safe!

FYI – Reservation and information regarding renting out Henrich Hall - This is now being handled by Beth Briggs. Thank you Beth for volunteering for this important task. You can reach Beth @ 857-236-0403.

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS: Starting on Monday, June 25th @ 12:30 pm, the Norwell Visiting Nurse Association will be holding a Wellness Clinic the last Monday of each month @ Henrich Hall. They will be checking blood pressure, glucose levels, blood oxygen levels and you may talk to a nurse about medications and ask medical questions, as a follow up, or to help you decide if you need to go to the doctor.

 Other Notices:

 Some Good Advice: This is tick season. Ticks cling to tall grass, weeds, shrubs and plants. We all need to keep our laws mowed all the way back to the tree line on the back of our lots. We also need to pickup all piles of leaves, pine needles, and brush from our yards as these promote tick population. Don't walk your dog in any of the wooded areas, as ticks will attach themselves to your pet and then end up in your home. Ticks are serious business, so please, mow your complete lawn area and don't walk in the high grass or in the wooded sections of our park.

 Thanks go out to Fredrick Corrigan for this information !

Reminder that all dogs must be on leashes and never tied up or left outside. If you have one that barks all the time when your gone leave a radio or the TV on ! .. Thank You and your neighbors thank you ! ! !

Great time to have your furnace cleaned and tuned up ........ why wait for the fall ! ! …................ call your oil or gas provider today ! !

Weekly Laughs A small boy was at the zoo with his father.  They were looking at the tigers, and his father was telling him how ferocious they were. “Daddy, if the tigers got out and ate you up…”“Yes, son?” the father asked, ready to console him. ……..“ …Which bus would I take home?” -Joe: What does your father do for a living? Jon: He’s a magician. He performs tricks, like sawing people in half. Joe: Do you have any brothers or sisters? Jon: Yep, four half-sisters and a half-brother ! - .Four men are in the hospital waiting room because their wives are having babies. A nurse goes up to the first guy and says, “Congratulations! You’re the father of twins.” “That’s odd,” answers the man. “I work for the Minnesota Twins! ”A nurse says to the second guy, “Congratulations! You’re the father of triplets!” “That’s weird,” answers the second man. “I work for the 3M company! ”A nurse tells the third man, “Congratulations! You’re the father of quadruplets!” “That’s strange,” he answers. “I work for the Four Seasons hotel!” The last man is groaning and banging his head against the wall. “What’s wrong?” the others ask……….“I work for 7 Up!” - What do you call your dad when he falls through the ice?  A POPsicle! -  How is the baby bird like its dad?…….  It’s a chirp off the old block. - You know I have a lot of my dad’s genes. …… Really ?

He was foaming at the mouth! - I asked my dad to help me with a math problem. He said: “Don’t worry; this is a piece of cake.” I said: “No dad, it’s a math problem.” - Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow. - There’s a big difference between bad jokes and dad jokes. And that difference is the first letter. - “While having their evening dinner together, a little girl looked up at her father and asked, “Daddy, you’re the boss in our family, right?” The father was very pleased to hear it and confidently replied, “Yes, my little princess.” The girl then continued, “That’s because mommy put you in charge, right?” ......................That is all we have today !  ......................................................... .................................................................................................... Happy Fathers Day !


Trivia  Answer - That would be in Germany ( and here in the USA we would like that too ! :-)
