To all whom these presents shall come, Greetings:
Running Man held its annual meeting on
10 December 2013 at Tabb Elementary School (cafeteria) from 7 PM to
8:30 PM. A more detailed report will follow.
A resident found an automobile
key on Paspehege Run. Contact the RM Board to insure
this is your key.
We have had a quick (much too quick) Summer and end of Fall. School started, Halloween came and went (did you see the Halloween Parade in Running Man?), another state election,
Thanksgiving is behind us and we are counting the days down to
One of the good news items from the annual meeting is
that annual dues will not increase. The dues remain at $157.
[Yes, visitors, that is correct -- annual dues are $157.00]. I

dues were much higher ($528 in one location and $1150 in another).
If you see something you like/don't like, please send an email to

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
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.
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.
