May 2019 – President’s Report

  • 05-23-19

By Gail Haggard

Summer is in full swing and with that said, our BBQ Pavilion, being constructed by our volunteer building committee, is well underway and looking good. We had our county inspection and it passed.
Our Activities committee prepared a great breakfast in conjunction with a presentation by our Firewise Committee chairperson, James Shaffner. This event was to show our appreciation of our first responder firefighters, paramedics and police officers. The event focused on how to be safe in the event of a fire, how to react to a medical emergency and how to protect yourself from criminal activity.
We also learned that the new fire station on Goodson Trail is equipped with staff quarters. This station is not scheduled to be staffed in the near future but as the community grows, the facility is equipped accordingly.
A Pickle ball club has been formed within the cove community and permission has been given by the golf course owners for the use of the tennis court to play Pickle ball. This game is being taught by residents David and Deb Wills and Bob Dillon . The first lesson was attended by approximately 17 members. We invite all Cove members to check out the game and join in on the fun. This is the fastest growing sport for seniors and people of all ages. For more information, please contact David and Debbie Wills. All members play at their own risk. Safety is the first and upmost lessons being taught by David, Deb and Bobby.
The Entrance Committee has been busy making our entrances and the welcome center bloom in gorgeous colors. Our Roads Committee has done a great job of clearing the easements of trees and debris in preparation for the annual mowings. The mowing work has begun and we encourage our members to notify the office if they have any issues with the mowing in their area. We need everyones help to get it right.
The budget committee has been working with the committee chairpersons in the preparation of the 2020 budget. They have also reviewed and updated the reserve study.
The Cumberland Cove finances are in good shape. Our treasurer, Terry Carr, has researched and has negotiated good CD interest rates. We are safely investing our money to get the highest yields in order to offset expenses and avoid special assessments. This is a goal of this Board of Directors.
We cannot thank our volunteers enough for all they do for the Cumberland Cove.

As always, please help those in need and pay it forward.
Please remember the homeless pets in our community and support spay and neuter programs as well as supporting our local shelters.

Barbecue Pavilion update
The first phase of the patio expansion and BBQ pavilion have been completed by the building committee and with the help of a wonderful group of volunteers. The new patio has exceeded our expectations and we are anxious to begin work on the next phase, which will entail the pouring of the BBQ pavilion pad. Posts have to be set in place and then an inspection by the county before proceeding. The

Roads Committee update
Good News…the Cumberland County roads department will begin work on repaving Belmont Drive in a few weeks if not sooner. We are still seeking bids on the repaving of the welcome center entrance off Hwy 70. We should have all bids submitted by the May 2019 board meeting. This is a much needed improvement.

Building Committee
Two new AED’s have been purchased since our current units were becoming unreliable. Thanks to Bob Grubb, we were able to obtain a great price on these units. These units could save lives and are a valuable asset to our community.

As always we thank our volunteers everyday for all they do for the Cove. We could not accomplish nearly as much. without their contributions.

Always remember those in need, remember the homeless and unwanted pets in our community and whenever possible, pay it forward.
