Hi Neighbors,

It was brought to my attention at our Feb meeting that Ms. Kristi Hulsey and her friends and neighbors were upset over a rumor that was circulating about her intentions concerning the Annual election of Board members. I want to offer an apology to Ms. Hulsey and assure her, and all our neighbors, this 2018 Board is committed to working within our Charter and By-Laws to do what, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, will promote the common, good and general welfare of the people of Village Green Subdivision. We want to be good neighbors to all our neighbors.

Next, I would like to introduce your 2018 Board of Directors:

  • Jim Ostrowski, Vice-President
  • John Ham, Secretary*
  • Carey Drake, Treasurer*
  • Karl Zimmerman, Tennis Chair
  • Gay Baker, Pool Safety Chair
  • Cheryl Drake, Pool Facilities Chair
  • Joe Finster, Grounds/Maintenance Chair
  • Mark Baker, Clubhouse Chair*
  • John-Paul Renier, Assessments Chair
  • *These three members were appointed to the Board after being incorrectly removed from the ballot of the nominating committee. Those members were appointed at a Special meeting of the Board of Directors in accordance with Article X, Section 2 of the By-Laws. We also had five additional neighbors come forward to volunteer for appointment. The Board would like to thank those volunteers, especially those who have agreed to have their names forwarded to the 2019 Nominating Committeee.

    It was at this meeting that the directors also determined which positions each elected or appointed person would hold during this year.

    The Board also appointed a Social/Community Activities Planning Committee whom I expect you will be hearing from shortly as they seek your input into our annual Easter Egg Hunt, Spring Yard Sale, Memorial Day Pool Opening, etc. The committee members are: Audrey Skeen, Kate Sultan, Antonia Zimmer, and Susie Cataldi.

    At our February monthly meeting we thanked our previous President Brent Watts for his two years of service, most notably all the hours he spent in 2016 keeping the neighborhood informed on our long-range planning goals, our need to renovate our facilities, and his willingness to be a neighbor to everyone. We also thanked Martina Hajkova for her efforts in bringing back great neighborhood parties. We approved our annual budget for the year, which includes a line item for replacement of street signs in accordance with federal Highway requirements and Town of Farragut mandate. There are concerns that the Town may be exceeding its authority. I will be meeting with other HOA Presidents in the next week to hear an argument opposing this mandate of the Towne.

    Just a reminder, our recent spring rains and the appearance of daffodils are a sure sign that the dogwoods will soon begin to bloom, and the Dogwood trail will be filled with visitors to our neighborhood. Please, tend and keep your curbs weeded and your yards well groomed. We are proud to be on the trail and would like to showcase our pride in our neighborhood.

    Have a Great Day!

    Rich Cataldi, President
