For What It’s Worth

Wordsworth June E Newsletter 2022
The Next Wordsworth Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for August 10th at 6PM in the Village Hall.
 
Before the next meeting there will be some maintenance scheduled beginning Monday, June 27th with the Pressure washing and Painting projects by Associa on Call of the 10 maintenance buildings for this year. Order of buildings will 1100 through 1800, then 4000 and 4100.
Following the pressure washing they will prep and paint.  Areas to be painted include front doors and trim, shutters, columns and mechanical doors and trim.
To ensure an efficient and safe jobsite:
·         We will start on Monday June 27th.
·         Please be careful entering and exiting your buildings.
·         Please be sure to move vehicles away from units being washed.  Spray/mist can leave water marks on your car.
·         Keep all windows closed while the buildings are being power washed
·         Consider removing window/patio door screens
·         Protect and/or move all valuables and breakables from patios and decks
·         Make sure the outside water spigot is turned on
·         During the painting process front door will need to be left open to dry.
 
Associa On Call will be working efficiently to complete this project as we know it can be an inconvenience with several folks working from home during these unprecedent times. We truly appreciate everyone’s support.

From James River Landscaping. June Report:
 
Wordsworth at West Neck Landscape Report
• Irrigation systems have been started and evaluated. There were 32 total controllers and well water sources. Two systems- Buildings 2700 and 4600- still need repairs. The other 30 systems are operational. The assigned repair budget was able to take care of minor repairs- replaced 48 gear drive heads, replaced 36 spray heads, replaced 375 nozzles, repaired four mainline leaks- 500, 2300, 2800, & 3000, numerous lateral line leaks, replaced three ribbon cables on controllers, permanent remote mounts were installed on each controller. Most of the controllers show 2003 date codes, may need to begin replacement in the future. There are additional solenoid issues suspected. Valves are operating now, but we will continue to monitor. Irrigation is currently set to run Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, overnight. Adjustments will be made if needed.
 • Seasonal service continues. The service day for the Community is Thursday, weather dependent.
 • Root zone injection to Crape myrtles was completed June 10, 2022
• Rose removal was done in early June.
 
 Future Services:
 • Pruning will begin June 20. Attention will be given to keeping a/c units open for air flow.
 • Approved enhancements that have been approved will be completed over the next four weeks- Magnolia removal, Oak removal, drainage.
 • Added proposals will be supplied for other projects, and irrigation repairs at 2700 and 4600.

Our Board member and Treasurer is leaving June 20th heading for Illinois to be closer to family. Beverly, I want to thank you for your dedication to this community working as a go to person for landscaping problems and just generally listening when neighbors approach you with their problems.  Also want to thank you for your work as Treasurer, working with people who do not understand the ins and outs of finance but still have to do their fiduciary duty for Wordsworth. You have kept us on point and will be greatly missed.  Good luck on your move and safe journey to your new home.
 
We will only have one meeting before election of Board members, so the Board will work in August with 4 Board members.  The upcoming election is in October, and we have 3 Board seats up for election, Bill Rawson and Chandler are up for reelection with a vacant seat to fill with Beverly McCormick moving to Illinois.  If you are interested in running for the Board, send your bio to Brett, bcampbell@communitygroup.com  so you can be added to the ballot.  After Board elections the Board meets for an organizational meeting where they vote for officers. 
 
ARC has become a constant complaint in our neighborhood because we suddenly are making it an issue after 19 years.  We had a working ARC until about 5 or 6 years ago.  No one would volunteer for a very thankless job or wanted to take the heat for doing the job until Earl stepped up.  There really wasn’t a big problem until after the original ARC stopped.  Of course, seeing someone do something that is against the rules leads to others saying “well if they can do it, so can I” and it really got out of hand.  Just because it was there when you moved in does not make it right and you should follow the rules.  The fact that most don’t really pay any attention to those rules doesn’t help the matter.  We are trying to get the neighborhood back to where it looks like the beautiful place we moved into. One other point, bird feeders attract critters, especially with the golf course as overgrown as it is.  The squirrels love the bird feeders, but the snakes love them more because they draw other small critters to the area.  There have been moles and small snakes found in garages lately reminding us that we share this property with all sorts of critters.  Appreciate it if you would read your rules and help us get everyone back in compliance.
 
The AM Book club is on hiatus until September.
 
The Worth Ladies Luncheon will be held at Imperial Palace on June 30th at 11:30AM.  If you are interested in attending let Marguerite msslvn@cox.net know by June 22nd. 
 
The Thursday night Bunko group will play on July 14th at 6:30pm at Marguerite’s.  Please let Marguerite know if you need a sub. 
 
Have a great 4th and stay safe,
Sue
