York County Supervisor Board
Virginia Delegate Helsel
Senator Mark Warner
Senator Tim Kaine
To all whom these presents shall come, Greetings!
Hallowe'en has come and gone along with the presidential election, Christmas and shopping and New Year's Day and the after Christmas sales have begun as well as the season of returns (duplicates, wrong size, wrong color, etc.). It is now 2017 and a new Board of Directors was elected the first week of December for Running Man. The new board will assume duties at the first meeting in January 2017.
Historically, January is the coldest month in Virginia starting about the third week. Be prepared!
Generally, this is also the time that people make resolutions or promises to themselves to change something about themselves, generally like lose weight, get more exercise, eat healthy, save money, shop wisely. My only resolution was to make no resolutions -- that way I am not disappointed!
We'll see what happens in a year (2018)!
Block Captains are needed. Contact Kevin Francis, call - 420-2409.
Some information regarding schools, demographics, York County General Info and the Welcome page have updates as of 2015 Statistical Digest.
Go to the Budget Page and preview the budget for RM for 2016 and proposed budget for 2017. They are PDF files and should load in Adobe Reader.
RMCA Board Minutes are posted on the page for the Board at the
bottom of the page.
Vacation: let the
York County Sheriff check your home while you are away
vacation house check program;
mail delivery; letting your neighbors know you will be
out of town for a while. Be safe, not sorry!
IF YOU NOTICE SOMETHING OR SOMEONE OUT OF PLACE, CALL THE YORK COUNTY SHERIFF. IF YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT, GO AHEAD AND CALL. IF YOU HESITATE, YOU SHOULD HAVE CALLED ALREADY.
Next Board meeting will be determined (probably 17 Jan 2017 at 7 PM at the Clubhouse).

York County has a
rich cultural heritage spanning 400 years. In the heart of Virginia's Historic
Triangle, national landmarks such as Yorktown, Jamestown and Colonial
Williamsburg blend naturally with the treasures of the gentle pace of life in
York County, one of the most livable places in the country. Nestled in the woods
adjacent to scenic rivers, Running Man is a peaceful sanctuary cherished long
ago by native Americans who enjoyed the bounty of these lands -- and today by a
new generation of Virginians.
Ms. Beth Cerri has
organized a yard and garden club. I have enough trouble just trying to kill the
weeds and keep the grass from dying. I would never profess to have a green
thumb. However, Ms. Cerri seems to have beaten the dirt devils and can grow
anything -- OK, what she does is take her lot and grow what suits the lot
according to soil, drainage, sun, etc. Bottom line -- her yard looks great and
she is willing to share her expertise. The RM Yard and Garden Club has held a
couple of meetings, is free, and you can learn something about your yard.
Please look for the next meeting in the Smoke Signal or the temp sign in the
residents have come to RMCA board meetings -- nothing really to shout about --
except they get to see/hear how we handle the business of the community. Some
have also presented concerns which various committees on the board handle and will
address. The invitation still stands -- anyone may come just let us know in
advance to permit accommodation of space and time.
