On May the 8th the homeowners at The Woods Townhomes met for their annual meeting. The usual things were discussed such making sure everyone pays their dues and what the money goes for, people letting their pets have "accidents" in the common area where the children play, children leaving their toys unattended, cars speeding through the neighborhood, etc.
This was a good group of people who care for each other and the value of their property. Not everyone agreed on how to handle each item, but people were respectful of each other's views and decisions were made. One comment was made about the condition of the gazebo where the mail was delivered. It was not really in that bad of shape, but a few spots needed painting and a board needed to be replaced. Everyone agreed that this was a good opportunity for the neighbors to pitch in and together have a "painting party". That next Saturday almost everyone at the meeting - and a few others - were there with scrapers, tarps and brushes all pitching it to make the gazebo look fresh and clean. One lady brought biscuits, sausage and jelly for the early morning crew and a fantistic bar-be-que was enjoyed when the job was finished.
