      Key points: May Meeting

                       a. The last Association Meeting was discussed, and it was decided that:

                           A list of names and addresses of members and/or non-members of the                               Association will not be provided to anyone due to privacy concerns.

                       b. This is the only information that would be made available: there are 184                             members of the association and per the directory there are 365                                         residents at Walnut Meadows.

                       c. There is no soliciting allowed in the community. The Board will not                                     authorize anyone to represent the Association and go door to door                                     regarding membership.

           

      Key Points June Meeting:

                       a. The Board thanked Linda for a great Job she did with Yard Sale. Joe                                   reported that the made approximately $2,350.

                       b. Bob is working on a list of items that are will be the new president’s                                   responsibility and those that are not.

                       c. Bernie brought up that the lights are being left on in the clubhouse. Bob                             made a sign to please turn off the lights and a schematic for the tables                               and chairs. Hopefully this will help.

 

      Key Points: August Meeting:

                      a. Bob informed the Board that Ro O’Sullivan has resigned as temporary                                Chairperson of the Social Committee.

                      b. Bob informed the Board that he sent an email to all members of the                                  Social Committee asking for someone to step up and chair the                                          committee on a temporary basis until the next president either makes                                the appointment permanent or appoints a new chairperson. To date no                              one has stepped up.

                      c. Bob stated that he is working on stepping away from things, that aren’t                              the responsibility so that the life of the new WMCA president will be                                  easier.

7) The Board discussed and agreed that the function of the Board is not to resolve                  maintenance issues.

                      a. Bob asked if the Board would like to make changes to the Maintenance Form and the policy of the Association with regards to maintenance. They agreed. Bob will talk more about this later.

                        Motion to accept: Chuck Hamann

                        Opening Balance - $11,557.03

                        Ending Balance - $12,610.77

                        Net Gain - $1,053.74

   

9) Unfinished or old business –

                    a. Montgomery County representatives were here on 8/26/2023 and met                                with the community to discuss Emergency Preparedness. They did a great                          job, and their presentation was well received.  Evacuation site is Family                              Worship Center off Troxel Rd

                    b. Bob will be preparing a handout summarizing the information supplied.

 

10) New Business:

                    a. Joe Dalton – Nominating Committee

                        Joe introduced the Nominating Committee

                           Joe Dalton

                           Andy Pistoria

                           Agie Phayre

                           Roz Paladino

Joe explained the nomination process and stated that we are still looking for a president and vice-president.

 

11) Bob stated that he is working with Version to come and do a meet and great with the          community. Update – Verizon will be here 9/21/2022 @ 5pm.

12) Maintenance Issues

                  a. Bob went over the purpose of the WMCA Association - This Community                              Association was formed to provide opportunities for residents to meet one                          another; to participate in various types of social activities; and to promote                          an atmosphere of neighborliness for the benefit and well-being of the whole                        community.

                  b. Bob explained the difference between a Community Association and                                  Homeowners Association. He also explained Land Rent vs Fees. The                                  Association is a separate entity for the owners and management. We have                          no say in the Community Rules and Regulations including the Pool Rules.                            Frustrating and time consuming. Going forward unless it’s a safety issue                            that effects the whole community, ex. Tree down and blocking the road. It                          will be up to each resident to work with the office to resolve their issue. It                          is no longer necessary to give a copy of the Maintenance Form to a Board                          Member.

Did I miss anything? Jim – Words of Wisdom

Comments from the floor?  Member(s) frustrated with lack of safety related issues addressed by park management.  Railing/concrete at clubhouse entrance, lack of upkeep and lighting at both entrances as well as on streets in park.  Jim once again reiterated that WMCA is a social organization and not a conduit for complaints.  Residents must seek out the onsite management to voice complaints.  Jim & Kay making effort to keep lines of communication with onsite management open as a courtesy to membership of WMCA but should not be construed as a tool for members to voice complaints and expect Jim to bring all issues to management.

Ro – feels that “God Bless America” song and opening meeting invocation be reinstated as has been a mainstay for meetings in the past and is important.

Jim agreed and will reinstate singing God Bless American along with Pedge as opening invocation at meetings.

  1. The Trip/Activity Fund is still suspended. $359 in the fun and reminded anyone can request help via this fund.

  2. We received a thank you note from Trinity Lutheran Church who adopted out library table, and I’ve posted it on the Bulletin Board.

  3. Dance Floor – management is fine with leaving the dance floor in place and I’ve given it two coats of Polyurethan to protect it in case something gets spilled.

 

New Business:

  1. I have met with representatives for the of Montgomery County Emergency Management and Towamencin Emergency Management in regard to an Emergency Evacuation Plan.

    1. They are not aware of any agreement with Dock as an evacuation site and would not recommend it as it’s just across the street

    2. In the event they have to evacuate us due to a fire or incident on the Parkway, our evacuation site is Family Worship Center off Troxel Rd, and they will work to get buses to take us there

    3. In the event of a Tornado Warning, (not watch) they all agreed that it’s best to hunker down at home and not try to drive anywhere.  Good places would be, windowless room, a hallway with the doorways closed or a bathtub.

    4. I mentioned to them that storms seem to pass us here. They are aware of this and call our area the “Donut Hole”.

    5.  I am also working on getting them to come and give a presentation. More details to follow.

 

2. Volunteer Ambulance Corps will be here next month to speak before our meeting.

 

3. I’ve had some residents approach me regarding a neighbor working their dog off the leash. The office has spoken to the individual and I saw them this morning and the dog was back on it’s leash.

 

4. Piano – as mentioned in the Reading of the Board minutes we will be looking into selling the piano and buying a keyboard if or when the need arises

  1. Dr. Kerr will be here this Thursday May 5 @ 9am

    1. to conduct his monthly exercise class.

    2. Dr. Kerr will also be here Friday May 13 @ 3pm to talk about balance and nutrition he will also be taking appointments for a free screening.

    3. There is no charge for these events however a Tip Jar will be available.

 

5.  Breakfast and History with Doug Shupinski on Saturday April 16 was a  huge success and 45 people attended. People have already asked for him to come back and I will look into bringing him back some time down the road.

 

6. The Fraud and Scam Presentation by Harleysville Bank was great and very informative.

 

7. I am looking forward to arranging some extra special events again this summer and I’m kicking it up a little early with “Take Me Out to The Ball Game”. Phillies vs S.F. Giants on the big screen, June 1st @6:05pm. Rain Date June 3, Phillies vs L.A. Angles @ 7:05pm. This is free bring your own snacks and drinks. Philly Cheese Steaks with soda and chips will be available for $6. Please use the envelopes to sign up and order.

 

8. Kay Johnson has resigned from the Social Committee effective June 1. This is a great loss to the community, and I encourage all residents to go to our website and look at the pictures of the events that Kay helped plan and run. Bob will leave the assigning of new Chairperson to the incoming President as of January 1, 2023.  Roe raised her hand to volunteer herself to head up the Committee as of Sept. 1, 2022.  Bob said he would only approve a temporary Chairperson till the end of the year. Per the By-laws it is the responsibility of the Association President to appoint Chairpersons. Roe explained that’s that the way they did it is the past. Bob explained then the By-laws would need to be changed.

 

9. Bob stated, by now some of you have heard that I will not be seeking a second term as president. This was not an easy decision for me, and I hope you know that I have always given my all to make this community the best it can be.

Comments from the floor?

Claire Schweitzer raised questions regarding the By-Law and the Liaison position. When Bob responded there is no Liaison at this time and past Liaison position representee was ineffective and was shut off by Management.  It was decided by past president Joe Dalton and current President to serve as de- facto Liaison and talk to management on behalf of some of the issues of concern by Community Members to the best of their ability. The conversation deteriorated and became confrontational. In her opinion the Board is disregarding By-Laws by not having a Liaison to park management/ownership. Bob Explained that everyone has every right to talk to management personally as this is a “Community” Association and not a “Homeowner” Association and the dues paid for membership go to serve the social nature of this Community Association.  Ms. Schweitzer made a motion for a vote to remove Bob from the position of President.  Bob agreed and called for a Second motion. There was no second. 

Kim Ruigrok also stood agreeing that management is not interested in resolving the issues of the community or is not open to communication.
