Message from the President

Spring time is definitely a hard fought battle around here and there is nothing like seeing all of the activity the warmer weather and longer days bring. The board marked the end of winter with our annual meeting March 11. It’s always nice to put names with faces, meet new neighbors, and review the board’s accomplishments over the past year. The board continued to usher in spring with our annual walk around to get a closer look at the potential toll that winter took on our common areas. This is also an opportunity for us to identify areas that require attention and improvement. This year’s walk around took place on May 9.

The annual garage sale is scheduled for Friday June 12 and Saturday June13 from 9a – 4p. This is an event that the board relies on residents to volunteer for. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community. We are currently looking for two or three volunteers to make this another successful event. For those interested, please contact Kim Sevier.

As always, the Board is here to serve this community, please contact any of the board members with concerns you may have. Thank you for the opportunity.

Jay Magnes, President, Ethan Commons HOA
