The Fells Board of Directors will hold an informational meeting on June 17 at 5:00 at the clubhouse to inform the community of various seasonal activities and address questions from members. The purpose of this meeting is to continue to build our sense of community and communication. This is not our annual meeting---just an attempt to make sure everyone has an opportunity to hear what has been going on, ask questions and provide input to the board. Brian LeBrie will be present to answer your landscaping questions.
We plan to address the following:

  • Overview of the landscaping work (Brian LaBrie)
  • Review of financials and information on the website
  • Definition of "Limited Common Area"
  • Update on pool repairs and status
  • Plans for Phase III (we hope to have a report to share from Stabile)
  • Gardening group---need a replacement(s) for Julie Livingston

If you have items you would like to have placed on the agenda please inform the board by emailing us at theboard@thefellsconnection.org.


Do you want to know more about what our website can do for you? Do you know all the nooks and crannies of our website? Do you want some help exploring? Come to our "Let's Talk" session this Wednesday, April 30 at 7:00 PM at the clubhouse to hear our Webmaster, Mike Ronayne, give us a tour of Thefellsconnection.org.

Dessert, Coffee and Tea will be served.  RSVP to Judie Post by Tuesday, April 29 at Postrain@aol.comor 554-1590. We hope to see you there!

On March 6, a group gathered at The Fells clubhouse to make some plans for social activities in the year ahead. The list of scheduled and some potential activities is provided below. You will note there are some blanks under “Lead Persons” and “Helpers”. Each event that we offer typically comes together through the efforts of a small group of volunteers. The “Lead Person” convenes a meeting or makes calls or sends an email to the “helpers” to plan an event.

A few updates to share – Oct 2019

Holiday Trash Pickup – October 19th

Due to the Columbus Day Holiday, trash pickup this week will be on Saturday, October 19. Andrew Knight has contacted Republic Trash to confirm the Saturday pickup so we should not see a repeat of the missed pickups we experienced on July 4th and Labor Day. We also wanted to let you know that Republic did give the Fells a credit for the missed pickups. Thanks to Andrew for arranging that.

BOD Candidate’s Night - Fireside Thursday on October 24th

As mentioned in a previous notice, the weekly Fireside Thursday event on October 24 from 5:00 to 7:00 will be BOD candidate’s night.This will be the usual informal gathering, but with a twist.  Some members of the board of directors will be present and will share information about the various tasks involved with being on the board. Residents who have decided to run for the open seat, or who are just thinking about it, are invited to come and share their interest in the board and why they are interested in running.

It will be a great way to meet candidates rather than a last minute introduction the night of the annual meeting, when we will be voting. And if you haven’t attended a weekly Fireside Thursday event, they are a great opportunity to meet neighbors.
