the Board President
Welcome to January, which means that by
now you’ve received your January maintenance
bill reflecting our 2019 increase. For those who
didn’t attend December’s budget meeting, a
letter was enclosed with your January bill that
explains what’s what with the budget, and you’ll
see that the vast majority of the increase was due
to union and minimum wage increases. Nevertheless,
I’m pleased to report that it is in fact the smallest increase
we’ve had in quite a long time.
Please note that if you receive your bill via email, the letter was attached
as a pdf. If you didn’t receive the letter or misplaced it and have
questions, please see Stacey or Claudia in the office and they’ll be happy
to give you a copy.
Be sure to mark your calendars for Sunday, January 13, for our annual
New Year’s Brunch in the 01 Community Room. The Board puts this
together each year for the whole community, and it’s a really nice way
for all of us to get together on a chilly winter afternoon. I hope you can
all drop by for a bagel and a shmear!
As I mentioned a couple of months ago, we received the final insurance
settlement from the damage caused by last March’s nor’easter
which will essentially cover the cost of a new roof for the 01 Building.
Unfortunately the monies came in too late to conduct the work in 2018
and per the contractor’s recommendation, we will have the roof done in
early spring. We’re in the process of setting a hard start date, so please
stay tuned for updates.
As you know, Cryder Point Community Affairs initiates several charitable
efforts throughout the year. Last month, CPCA chose Burt &
Barbara’s Gifts from the Heart which, in association with Volunteers
of America, helps the elderly through the holiday season. I’m happy to
report that in December, a contribution was made on behalf of Cryder
Point to this worthwhile organization. The donation wouldn’t have
been possible without the ongoing participation of our residents in
CPCA’s events during the year which raise money and make CPCA
a self-funded organization within our community. As a result, CPCA
was able to write a generous check which, along with additional contributions
from our residents, allowed Burt & Barbara’s charity to receive
a donation from Cryder Point for $400. Thank you to everyone who
contributed and to everyone who participates in CPCA’s events all year
I hope you enjoy the photos in this issue from December’s Kids
Holiday Party. I’m not sure who enjoys it more: the kids, or resident
Joe Lombardo, who reprised his starring role as Santa Claus (to rave
reviews, from what I’ve heard). Thanks Joe!
Finally, on behalf of the Board, let me wish all our friends, neighbors
and staff at Cryder Point all the best for a happy and healthy New Year.
Till next time, Jill Davis
