Directory Updates

Since our Overbrook Gardens Directory is an annual publication, any changes that occur after printing are not available to our residents until the following year.  Oftentimes, residents change their phone service and forget to share the new number with us, so we continue to publish an inaccurate number for them.  In addition, as new folks move into our community, we have not been able to share their information until the next directory is published. 

 

A new feature of the web site is to collect changes that all residents would like of their listing in the Directory.  This Directory Updates page can be accessed via the new button in the main menu on the left.  Please check your listing and contact us if you would like a change to be made.  Your new information will be entered in the membership database for use in publishing the next directory, and you will be asked for permission to post the change on the web site.  Listing your information is completely voluntary.  In addition, if you would like to have your email address listed, this can be done here as well.  If there is a significant interest among our residents to have their email addresses listed, we can consider revising our listings in our 2016 directory.  We welcome your comments.  To list a change please contact Margaret Wypychoski, 475-6383, or Jack Rienks, 473-3179.

 

Scoop that Poop

More pets seem to be inhabiting our closely populated area which increases the threat to the cleanliness of our underground and channel waters.  Pet owners need to realize that poop left on yards and streets finds its way quickly to our boating waters, and eventually contaminates underground water.  Property owners expect those who walk pets in this area to be responsible for their pets.  This includes picking up their poop which can be done easily and safely by using plastic bags and small implements.   More information can be found here.
