April is already upon us. Boy, how the time really flies. Here's some things you should know about this month going into a new Board Year.
Compliance this month is looking at Driveways/Sidewalks/Mailboxes - I've added this page specifically to the website, so you can always find it. https://www.fairway-springs.com/monthly-compliance-checklist. AVOID FINES BY GETTING AHEAD....
Fairway Springs Board has taken control again of issuing Pool Key fobs. If you need one, here's where to go, how to pay and what to do: https://www.fairway-springs.com/clubhouse
The Annual Meeting could NOT be held because we failed as a community to achieve quorum. That is, we did NOT receive 122 homeowner's between those in attendance at the meeting and those mailing in proxies. We must do better and that is on all of us!
No annual meeting means that the current Board was left to APPOINT new members, rather than the community ELECT Board members - My caution to you all is that this is a recipe for potential nepotism, Board stacking, self serving and other damaging behaviors and should be avoided at all costs. You must submit your proxies in the future!
Fortunately two of our outgoing Board members re-volunteered and we attracted a new Board member so we are at a full compliment.
The Organizational Meeting was held and here's who sits where until the next Annual Meeting (April 27th, 2024):

Events: The annual Easter Egg hunt will be held on Easter Sunday at the clubhouse and across homes in our neighborhood. Thanks to Angelo and Julia Demeo for running and coordinating this great event for our neighborhood children. Bunco is held every 3rd Tuesday of the month. And our Spring Yard Sale and Cook-Out is scheduled for April 22nd.
Heads up that this year represent 40 years since the HOA took over from the Developer, so it's our 40th birthday. In early June we will recognize that with a large neighborhood celebration - all lot owners and residents are welcome.
