To all whom these presents shall come, Greetings!  

It is 2016, finally!

The 2015 Holiday season is over and we have to start writing a new date on checks.

Annual dues for Running Man dues should be paid by the end of January.

I've mentioned this before and it bears repeating. Running Man has (probably) the lowest dues of any homeowner association in the area. There is more on the Dues page.

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 2016. 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.

We had the warmest October, November and December on record.


OFFICIALLY: Political signs are not allowed on property in Running Man
.
UNOFFICIALLY: Tiger paws are not really permitted on the asphalt but on the driveway. Tabb High has the stencil and the particular shade of orange paint.

 

 

 

   

Things happening in the near future:

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. Yes, I know that this is a new year; however, folks will be planning on a vacation at Spring Break and maybe a short vacation over President's Day. 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.

 

 

 

 

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

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)

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.
