Letter to Membership and Meeting Notice
GHPOA September 2020
Hello everyone and thank you for the continued support to the Property Owners Association. It has been
a busy year for your board, and we feel our association continues to make forward progress. With the
COVID-19 Pandemic this has been a challenging year to say the least. Due to restrictions on gathering and
concern about safety we did not hold our Annual Membership meeting in April. We will have our
normally scheduled Semi-Annual meeting on October 3, 2020. We will practice social distancing at
the Pavilion and ask those who can attend to wear masks.
Here are some of our accomplishments since our last meeting in October 2019.
1. Due to measures taken by the Community, we now have 98% of member dues paid for the
2. The By-Laws were updated to allow the Board to consist of up to 7 community members
instead of 11;
3. Reviewed insurance costs and renewed all the necessary lines of coverage;
4. Formalized the relationship with the Riverview Estates Homeowners Association regarding
access to the river from their community right of way;
5. Provided paid members with placards for their cars to use when accessing the private
community dock and boat ramp;
6. Opened up a separate account for Road Maintenance Only and transferred funds from the
General Operating Account as agreed in previous meetings.
The Semi-Annual Membership Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October
3rd, 2020 at the Pavilion at 1pm.
At this meeting the following items are up for review and discussion by membership:
1. There are 7 Board Members whose term expired on either April of 2019 or April of 2020.
Since there was no annual meeting in April 2020 to approve new members, those
individuals were asked to continue their duties. We are now technically down to 2 Board
members and are in great need of additional volunteers;
2. Use of GHPOA Website – www.Glenhavenpoa.org;
3. Use of Neighborhood Facebook page;
4. Discussion of the use of Airbnb and similar entities by property owners;
5. Review and approval of the Minutes from October 2019 Meeting.
It is the hopes of the board that all homeowners attend the upcoming meeting on October 3rd. Social
Distancing will be practiced and we ask that all attendees where a mask.
If you have any concerns that you would like to have discussed prior to the meeting please contact the
board via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
2 weeks prior to meeting date.
Thank you all,
GHPOA Board of Directors

Recent announcement affecting upper Potomac River and other Maryland controlled waterways:
BROADENING OF PERMITTED OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES:
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has amended his Stay at Home order to broaden the list of permitted outdoor activities to now include individual and small group sports such as golfing, tennis, and similar activities; outdoor fitness instruction; recreational fishing and hunting; recreational boating; and horseback riding. Closed functions at state parks will be reopened, including all state beaches for walking and exercise, as well as playgrounds. Local governments will have the flexibility to take similar actions at their discretion. It will remain critical, however, that Marylanders continue to follow public health guidance and practice physical distancing. Changes became effective Thursday, May 7, at 7:00 a.m.
An Open Letter to Our Community
The GHPOA board met recently recognizing that some members of our community may need help at this time of high concern over the current pandemic.
We are all aware the Covid 19 virus (Corona) is most dangerous to those with pre-existing medical conditions, especially seniors.
GHPOA is seeking volunteers to help in assisting those community members in need. This may be as simple as going to the grocery store or pharmacy. We ask that if you know of a senior member in the community to reach out to them and check on them often.
If you are willing to be called to help in our community please notify Carrie Perfetto at [304-676-9455] or email me at email@example.com and I will do my best to coordinate.
If you are IN NEED of assistance – I ask that you call me at the number above and I will make every effort to get you the assistance you need.
Please stay healthy, wash your hands and lets look out for each other!
Scoop your poop!
We all love our four-legged friends but it’s not so nice to step in their poo. Whether it’s our home lawns, docks lots or the Glen Haven community property, please be a good pet owner and pick up after your pooch.
The sun is out...
and so are the kids!
Please respect the 15 mph speed limit in our beautiful neighborhood.
