To all whom these presents shall come, Greetings!  

 

The more things change, the more they remain the same. How many times have you heard that saying from either Bon Jovi or Alphonse Karr?

Well, there are some changes in the wind for Running Man.

Go to the Budget Page and preview the proposed budget for RM for 2015. It is a PDF file and you should view it in Adobe Reader.

It's time to change the date when you write your checks. It's time to make and not break resolutions. It's time for reflection. January is named for the Janus, the Roman mythical god of endings and beginnings -- looking both forward to the future and rearward to the past. Rome though used a 10 month calendar and eventually added 2 months at the beginning of the year. The Babylonians were the first people recorded to have made new year resolutions. But how many they made or we make today and keep is subject to speculation.

We have already had the shortest (as far as sunlight) day of the year and days will increase in their amount of sunlight by 2 minutes 8 seconds a day. I don't know when you will notice the difference, though for a couple of weeks. January is still on record as our coldest month, even with the increase in sunshine.

Only 2 more football games left this season -- Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl. Then there is only bowling and golf to watch on television

RMCA Board meetings held 3rd Tues of each month at Clubhouse, 7 PM. blank    

The annual meeting resulted in electing some new members to the board. The first meeting will be 20 January.

 

 

 

The Smoke Signal will still be delivered to your mailbox but it will be in color and cover more material. N2 Publishing made a presentation regarding their services and experience level. The RM Board decided to go with the company. The RM publication will still be called 'Smoke Signal' and still have the RM logo and RM specific articles but material will be in color on glossy pages.

Contact any RMCA board member if you want a subject covered, addressed, or want to add your own article.

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 medians.

As you may have also noticed, the medians on Running Man Trail have all had curbs placed on the ends.  The landscape timbers were not doing the job.  The head wall on a couple of medians was also repaired.  The grass looks well in the medians and has been cut and clipping clumps removed.  The continuing project will involve selecting shrubbery or flowers to plant in the medians.  Kudos (not the snack food) to the Landscape folks.


Some 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.
