As I write this article I am currently looking at the security cameras that overlook the pool. Unfortunately, last night some kids went for a swim after hours and vandalized some of the pool deck furniture. Bretton Woods is a very nice community and myself and the HOA board intend to keep it that way. Roving security has been hired and will be driving through the community at random hours on a daily basis. Additionally, cameras are strategically placed on the HOA property. Anyone seen vandalizing or breaking any law will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If the rules that the HOA has in place are broken by a resident or guest, this will result in a fine and/or a suspension of your use of the recreational facilities. Please help us keep this community the beautiful and safe place that it has always been for all of us. If you see anything out of the ordinary or inappropriate behavior please report it immediately to a staff member.
Thomas Wodzenski and Travis Rogowski, our Pool Staff, unfortunately, had to perform CPR on Joel Borak on July 3rd. Joel, unfortunately, did not make it and he will be greatly missed by several people in this community. He was a very active resident and one of the nicest people I have had the privilege to know. My sincere condolences to Judy Jelinek, his girlfriend, as well as both of their families. I would like to take this opportunity to commend the efforts of the entire staff that helped during this tragic event particularly Tom and Travis. The two of them quickly responded and did everything humanly possible to try and revive him.
On a lighter note, we recently had the first of four pool parties planned for this summer and I am happy to report that it was a great success. Due to the inclement weather, the party was moved into the Rainbow Room and food service was provided by the restaurant. The intention was to grill for the party which the restaurant couldn’t do because of the weather. They adapted the best they could and under the circumstances, I think they did a very nice job considering the amount of people that attended. Moving forward, we will have a better contingency plan in place in the event that we have to move inside again.
By the time you read this article the construction for the new gatehouse on Daryl drive will be coming to an end. The gatehouse will be fully operational by the end of August if everything stays on the current schedule. The gate will be an entrance only and will be open during the during day time hours only. The current plan is from 9:00am-9:00pm. The gates will then be shut and locked and will remain closed until the following morning. New landscaping and lighting will be installed in addition to the new fencing and security cameras. I, as well as the HOA Board, are very optimistic that this will significantly help to alleviate the traffic issues at the current gatehouse.
I hope to see everyone August 11th and August 25th from 6:00pm-10:00pm for our pool parties this month.
