AWPOA normally has a Spring Cleanup and a Fall Cleanup, where owners are
asked to participate in cleaning up brush, leaves, mulching flower beds, etc.
Additional cleanups could be scheduled if conditions occur that would warrant,
such as an unusual storm. Not only does a lot of work get done this way, but
it is a great way to meet and talk with your neighbors. Hard work, but fun as well!
AWPOA also has a few "social" events through out the year such as a
Summer Picnic, a Holiday Party, Trick or Treat night, and a bonfire wiener
roast following the cleanups weather permitting. A Social Committee is
always looking to add a few more fun events. All events are casual dress,
"no formality here".
AWPOA has an Annual Meeting where members hear what happened over
the past year, plans for the new year, vote on new Board members, and hear
other important or not so important information as the case may be.
Members are encouraged to share personal information such as names
of household members, email address(es), and phone number(s). This
information is useful should the need arise that would require contacting
a member in an emergency. Email is used as the primary means of communicating information, such as minutes of Board Meetings and
other notices. Depending on the importance, the information may be sent
through the Postal Service or attached to the members' mailbox.
