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 budget for RM for 2015. It is a PDF file and you should view it in Adobe Reader.

RMCA Board Minutes are posted on the page for the Board at the bottom of the page.

June is half-way gone now. Our students will move up a g rade in the Fall, have graduated high school and are finally now seriously, really, very seriously thought about what they will do in college; the community pool is open (1200 - 2000 hours); it is HOT; but the grass isn't dead and still needs cutting; the community had a yard sale (more info coming); and we had a home security presentation at the club house (more info on that as well)!

No, I didn' forget about Flag Day or Father's Day. Very busy month.

 
        

 

 

 

 

Don't let your clippings (as much s possible) go in the drainage ditch.  The Chesapeake Bay will thank you!

Now it's time to seriously think about:

Vacation: let the York County Sheriff check your home while you are away through the vacation house check program; stopping your mail delivery; letting your neighbors know you will be out of town for a while.

Yard work:  it is overly warm now, increase your intake of fluids and try to get the work done before noon. AND, hire one of your teenage neighbors who might need money for college or other expenses.  Check the Smoke Signal for those teenagers looking you may employ.

YARD SALE: we had a rather successful one and the rain held off. More later. areeves723@gmail.com

 

 

 


 

 

 

CEOne of our neighbors volunteered and is assisting with the Pond work (Running Man lake by Victory and RM Trail).

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.


Why should you want to live in York County, Virginia and Running Man in particular?
I could give you many opinions from previous and current residents but opinions can be tainted so let's go with some facts:

Temperature -- lowest monthly average low -    32.6F January
                            highest monthly average high - 87.4F July
Precipitation -- 45.6 inches annually and 7.6 inches of snowfall (Dec, Jan Feb)
Population density - 625 per square mile
Median household income -- $81,406

Then there are eight 4 year institutions and 3 community colleges

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.
