Happy Spring !



Headlines - Life Events and Recent News:


Visiting Nurse @ Henrich Hall Upper level on Monday March 25th from 12:30-1:30.

There will be a rules/bylaw committee meeting  on Monday March 25 at 4 PM. @ Henrich Hall  …… Deb Winiewicz


Beautification Committee News - Hopefully spring will be here before we know it and the beautification group will be at work again. The more people we have to volunteer the faster the projects/clean up will get done and we can do a few new projects as well. You do not have to be an expert gardener! I hope to have a meeting for all those interested the first week in April. Everyone please give it some thought, the more we do in the park as volunteers the more we can keep our costs down. The one area that has been running over budget is landscaping. The projects and clean up the group does is not already paid for. We can really make a difference! This is our community, it belongs to all of us, We already got a lot done in the fall and would like to continue cleaning up and taking care of what we got done. I know that with many volunteers we can really spruce up our neighborhoods.  ................... The more people the better !

 .…… Need more info or to volunteer please Call Deb Winiewicz @ 781-293-1937
