Rhondda Events

President's Message

Fall has arrived in Rhondda. The days are getting shorter and definitely cooler. It is that time of year when the fall yard clean-up begins. We have provided the scheduled yard waste pick-up dates for Uwchlan Township in this issue of the Roster. Please remember that yard waste will not be collected along with regular trash during this time period.
The yearly nomination process is starting to collect your submissions to name our Volunteer of the Year at the annual Appreciation Dinner to be held February 2016. Please start thinking about a particular volunteer that you feel goes above and beyond to serve our community. You can find the nomination form inside this issue of the paper Roster.
I hope to see a bunch of families at our upcoming Halloween party!

October will be a very busy month. 

Our landscapers will begin grinding up the leaves and preparing the entrance beds for the winter.

I am reviewing snow storm procedures with our plowing contractor. On major storms over 6” we will go court to court ahead of time to identify any cars which need to be moved. If we cannot contact the owner of any vehicle to be moved, we will tow the car at the owner’s expense.

We will need contact information for anyone that parks a vehicle around the inner circle area so we may contact them if their vehicle needs to be moved. Storms less than 6” have not been a problem. 

This month an arborist will present a plan to trim and maintain the trees in the common ground areas. The plan will indicate any dangerous situations that need to be addressed. The trimming is meant to reduce damage caused by storms and improve the aesthetics of the development.

I will be repairing the tennis court cracks to stop ice and snow from seeping below the surface, freezing and creating larger cracks.

The biographies of the candidates for the 2016 RHA Elections are included in this issue of the paper Roster. All homeowners are encouraged to vote. Please be aware that your dues must be current in order to vote and it is the homeowners that have the voting rights.

Our Annual Halloween Party will be held Saturday, October 17th from 2 to 4:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the farmhouse. Miss Denise from Happy Heart Clown will provide balloon magic and weather permitting, pony rides will be given by Book Family Farm.  This party takes place rain or shine. 

Volunteers are always needed. I look forward to talking to anyone who cares to lend a hand with costume judging and managing the refreshment tables. To insure that there are plenty of treats to go around, please call and register for this event. Donations of baked goods are very much appreciated. Beverages will be provided.

The final community activity this year will be Breakfast with Santa on December 5th from 10 a.m. to noon. A fun time has always been had by everyone that participates. Volunteers are also needed to wrap presents, set up, serve food and help Santa. 

Please remember to turn your clocks back one hour on Saturday, October 31st, before you go to sleep, as Standard Time returns at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 1st.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the Halloween Party.
