Happy New Year and welcome to 2020. I hope everyone had a terrific holiday. We have a board of directors meeting coming up Monday the 13th and as always, everyone is welcome to attend. The meeting will be held at the Gloucester public library in conference room “A” starting at 6:00 PM. For those of you that won’t be able to make it, I am attaching a copy of the agenda (view agenda) and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me or anyone on the board. I don’t anticipate our meeting to go for more than an hour to an hour and a half. For those of you that have attended our board meetings in the past, you are probably wondering why we are not holding it at the Piantakant Community center in Harcum. The reason is that they have doubled the price for using the facility and it doesn’t make sense to waste the association’s funds. By the way, if you are so inclined, there a plenty of good eating places around the library either before or after the meeting.

We look forward to seeing everyone Monday evening.


Your Board,
Mike AtLee – President
Charlie Patullo – Vice President
Travis Hurand – Acting Treasurer

Happy New Year


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, it seemed to go by fast. Well, It’s time to ring in the new year and as usual, reflect on the old year in the process.

The HoA had a fantastic year in 2019, here are some of the highlights:

  • Landscaping completed for the entire neighborhood
  • The new paint job on the pavilion
  • The pool parking lot resealed and new lines painted, looks new
  • Dock repaired, water lines placed to the end of the dock, as well as electricity, boards stained and safety ladders placed on both ends of the dock.
  • New lawn service, kept the grass looking good throughout the neighborhood. The first time we have ever had the leaves cleaned up for the winter.
  • Terrific social get-togethers, extended into this fall and winter. If you haven’t attended any, please take advantage of them, lots of fun.
  • First Christmas ugly sweater contest.
  • First Christmas float parade, even Santa showed up and gave out candy canes
  • Successful Charity race in June for VA Special Olympics
  • No dues increased, finances are in great shape
  • 3 new homes under construction, very soon to have new neighbors, please reach out and welcome them

Upcoming events in 2020:

  • January 13th, Board of Directors meeting at Piankatank Community League building 11888 Harcum Rd. 6:00 – agenda to be sent out soon.
  • 3 board openings coming up in March at the annual meeting, join the board.
  • 2020 Charity Race June 20th, please plan on participating, it’s a great cause, more info to follow.
