It takes a village or in this case, a group of cul-de- sac residents! Cul-de-sac maintenance is one thing but re-inventing it, is another and a costly one at that.

It is hard to believe that kids will be heading back to school soon, and another summer will soon be in the books. With that in mind, I would like to comment on a few recent activities and upcoming events:

This year’s judging took place for this annual event on a gloomy, somewhat rainy day but what was bright and colorful and full of happiness was the home that took the grand prize this year for Best Front Yard—the Spahic home at 54741 Winding Brook Drive. This front yard captured all of the elements that the judges look for in the winning yard—use of flowers, featured mailbox, container gardening, use of foliage, whimsy, color, and creativity. Congratulations to the Spahic family and a big thank you to them for giving Winding Brook this oasis of beauty!

Water issues continue to plague some of our residents as the extraordinary amounts of rain continue to besiege us.
A meeting is planned for September that will focus on what you are experiencing and what options may be available.
Please watch for details in the next Crier.
To date we have collected $16,135 for our entrance project coming close to our goal of $17,500.

Won’t you please help us close the gap?
