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.
It is now the last month of Summer. Be sure to check out the Perseid meteor shower -- probably best on Wed, 12 Aug. Free natural fireworks starting around 9 PM -- this will be the best time and day for viewing. The meteor shower will conitnue to be seen until 26 August but as that date approaches, the number and intensity decreases.
Our college bound students should be departing soon for college.
And that also means that college football won't be far behind.
The professional preseason already started with the Hall of Fame Classic on 9 Aug.
The tax-free weekend for local back to schoo will be 7 - 9 Aug.
Have a good couple of weeks of (official) summer neighbors.
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
vacation house check program;
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.
One 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.

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.
