Board of Trustees News

Goldenwood West (GWW) property owners in attendance at the meeting held at the neighborhood pavilion on Nov. 22, 2003, elected Lisa Boyer and Margaret Paine to fill positions on the Board of Trustees (BOT) vacated by John Anderson and Gina Crouchet . At their first meeting of the new year on January 7th the following officers were elected within the BOT: President, Dena Seligman; Vice President, Lisa Boyer; Treasurer, Delbert Bassett; Secretary, Margaret Paine; Trustee, Tom Watson.

House Numbers Our fire department has made an earnest request that homeowners in our neighborhood display easy-to-read house numbers on all homes. Please ensure that vegetation or other materials are not obscuring your house number. The safety of your family members may depend on the ability of emergency personnel to locate your home quickly, day or night.

What about a party? BOT member Lisa Boyer has offered to be the contact person for any members who would be interested in planning a Meet Your Neighbor party or other social event. Email a message to Lisa via the site webmaster. It would be helpful if you put "Neighborhood Party" in the subject line.

Clubs and a Bartering Service Some of our members have raised the question of whether there is any interest in GWW in establishing a bartering service where members can publicize their professions/skills and trade time for services. There has also been mention of starting a Garden Club, a moms’ group, and a Bunko group. If you have an interest in these or other ideas for our neighborhood, contact the editor. Contact information is listed on the last page of this newsletter.Website for Goldenwood West The BOT approved a proposal made by member Margaret Paine to design and publish an informational website for our neighborhood at no cost to the POA. In the interest of making this site as useful as possible for the neighborhood, any residents who have suggestions for content which they would like to see on the site are encouraged to contact Margaret at or 894-0903.

Please remember that all meetings of the BOT and the APC are open to the homeowners.  The dates and times are posted on the mail station bulletin board.  Attend a meeting to learn what is going on in your neighborhood.
