WE NEED A VOLUNTEER SPONSOR IN ORDER TO HOLD THE SPRING YARD SALE

It's time to start planning for our Annual Neighborhood-wide Spring Yard Sale and we need a volunteer to step forward to coordinate the event.

.

NOTE: Without a volunteer sponsor there will be no Spring Yard Sale.

.

Here's what is involved in being the sponsor:

1 - Select the Saturday on which to hold the event.

2 - Provide the proposed date to the HOA Board for approval.

3 - Place Ads in the Covington News and the Newton Citizen for the week of the event; you'll be reimbursed for this expense with your receipts.

4 - Place the Yard Sale signs at each of the 3 entrances and at the pool area on the Sunday before the event to provide a full week's worth of free advertising for drive-thru customers; we already have pre-made signs ready to put out and we'll provide them to you.

5 - Remove the signs on the date of the event after it ends.

.

If you'd like to volunteer, please send an email to tp81854@yahoo.com ASAP!

GREEN VEHICLE STICKERS

With the Pool Parking Lot in regular use, it is important that every vehicle owned by a resident have a Green Vehicle Sticker placed on the rear window. These stickers are provided free of charge by the HOA and are a Safety Measure to assist residents and the Covington Police recognize those vehicles that belong in our neighborhood.

If you do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on each of your vehicles, please REPLY to this email providing your Name, Street Address, and the Number of Vehicles you have and they will be delivered to your mailbox.

If you would like a sticker for your golf cart too, please make that request as this is a great idea since many residents drive their golf carts to the pool.

OVERNIGHT VISITORS & CAMPERS/RVs PARKED IN THE STREET or AT POOL PARKING LOT - VISITOR PARKING PASS REQUIRED - NO EXCEPTIONS

If you will be having overnight quests park on the street or your Camper/RV parked in front of your home (or at the Pool Parking Lot) at any time during the year in preparation for a trip or returning from a trip, you MUST place a VISITOR PARKING PASS on the dashboard so that the Covington Police know that it belongs to you and will be moving shortly. Please indicate on the Visitor Pass the date you will be moving the RV. This is to be followed every time.

Leaving unmarked cars parked in the Pool Parking Lot during the day or overnight is not allowed. If vehicles do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on them then they MUST have a Visitor Parking Pass on them to keep from being towed.

.

If you need a Visitor Parking Pass Template, please email tp81854@yahoo.com and one will be emailed back to you.

GOT ANY NEWS TO SHARE?

If you have school, military, community, etc. news to share with the neighborhood, please send it to tp81854@yahoo.com by Thursday each week to be included in the Newsletter.
