NATIONAL NIGHT OUT:  Runnymeade will be participating in National Night Out again this year. This year's National Night Out (NNO) will be held on Tuesday, August 5, beginning at 6:00 pm at the Tot Lot Turnaround on High Meadow Road. Last year's NNO in Runnymeade was an outstanding success with over 80 adults and children participating. We want to double that amount this year! Will you help us?

Congratulations and Welcome to New Board Members:  At the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Runnymeade Homeowners Association (RHOA) on June 26, two new Board Members were elected:  Julie Porcelli of Heatherwood Court and Timothy Wood of Castletown Way.  They join Eric Vicks, Pat Mahoney, and Scott Sharp, who continue on the Board.  Welcome to Julie and Tim!

Special Thanks to Retiring Board Members:  Natasha Ofosu and Nour Nourey deserve our Special Thanks for their service to Runnymeade over the last three years and even prior to that.  They will be missed.  

The July meeting of the RHOA Board of Directors was held Tuesday, July 22.  At this meeting the Board elected the following officers for the 2014-15 term:  President, Pat Mahoney; Vice President, Scott Sharp; Treasurer, Mary Ann Dougherty, and Secretary, Julie Porcelli.  Congratulations to you all, and thank you to retiring officers Natasha Ofosu (Vice President) and Eric Vicks (Secretary).  Eric continues on the Board as a Director. 

RECYCLING:  Back in November, we mailed Runnymeade's Trash and Recycling Guidelines to all homeowners, together with a brochure titled Think Before You Throw, on the "do's and don'ts" of Recycling, from American Disposal (ADS), our trash and recycling contractor.   We also have Think Before You Throw magnets available for free to any resident who wants one.  If you would like a copy of the Guidelines and/or one of the magnets, please contact Sarinda Ly, at sarinda@jeffreycharles.com.   ADS recently focused on items that contaminate the recycling stream and should not be placed into recycling bins.  You can see this in the ADS Think Before You Throw March E-Newsletter: Contaminants in the Recycling Stream http://conta.cc/1fzrW6Q .

ACC REMINDER:  Are you planning to paint and/or to make any exterior modifications to your home? Please see the "ACC Info" page on this site. If you would like to reach all ACC members at once, using only one, easy-to-remember email address, send your email to
rhoa-acc@googlegroups.com and it will go directly to all members of the ACC without you having to look up their names and email addresses.

UPCOMING EVENTS




Runnymeade Homeowners Association Board Meeting
 
 

The August RHOA Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 26, at 7:00 pm at the Franconia Governmental Center.

The RHOA Board of Directors and interested homeowners generally meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month with the exception of December. The Board has to schedule its monthly meetings around the availability of meeting sites, so dates and locations are sometimes changed for that reason. Residents are advised to check this website for updates as changes can be made at the last minute that are beyond our control. Also, schedule changes are e-mailed to residents who sign up for the RHOA-Web-Site-News notifications.


 

The next ACC meeting . . .
 
The Runnymeade Architectural Control Committee (ACC) normally meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm. at the offices of Jeffrey Charles & Associates, 6422 Grovedale Dr., Suite 201-C, Alexandria, VA 22310, in the upstairs conference room.  

The ACC has to schedule its monthly meetings around the availability of meeting sites; so dates, times, and locations are often changed for that reason. Residents are advised to check the Community Sign and this website for updates, as changes are often made at the last minute that are beyond the ACC's control. Also, schedule changes are e-mailed to residents who sign up for the RHOA-Web-Site-News notifications on the home page of Runnymeade.org.  For the location and time of the next meeting, you can also always call Jeffrey Charles & Associates at 703-924-5900.



Grounds Committee News. . .


Did you know that the RHOA provides free mowing of your front lawn by Premium Lawn and Landscape, our grounds contractor?

  The service is for front lawns only, and you must request it (or if you no longer want the service, you must decline it). To check to see if you are signed up for the service, call our management company, Jeffrey Charles & Associates, at 703-924-5900.


Have you ever wanted a handy list of what you should and should not put out to be recycled?

American Disposal, our trash contractor, has just prepared a colorful flyer that you can post on your refrigerator or kitchen bulletin board. To get a copy, just click here:

Protect Our Water

When it rains, the water running along our streets vanishes down storm drains in Runnymeade. Although many people assume otherwise, the water in a storm drain does not go to a wastewater treatment plant. Instead, it drains
directly into Cameron Run, which leads to the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

This means motor oil, pesticides, paint, yard debris, harmful fertilizers, and trash all have the potential to impact our drinking water, as well as impair or destroy many forms of aquatic life.

Fortunately, there are some steps we can all take to make a difference:

 

·         Storm drains are NOT trash cans! Put trash and recycling where it belongs, not in our streams.

·         Properly dispose of motor oil — one gallon of oil can pollute two million gallons of water

·         Don’t let suds from washing your car go down the storm drain – they can be toxic to wildlife.

·         Scoop the poop. Help keep harmful bacteria from dog waste out of our waterways.

·         Be careful with fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides. Use only when necessary, apply when rain will not wash them away, and sweep up excess.
 

·         Prevent and report storm drain dumping. If you see hazardous wastes like paint, pesticides, or motor oil dumped in storm drains, report it to Fairfax County at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.


Only Rain in the Storm Drain! Make sure that nothing other than water ever goes down your storm drain. Help keep water safe for children and future generations.

Fairfax County also has a recycling program called "Electric Sunday" to help residents dispose of old electronics. For more information, here’s the link for Fairfax County’s Electric Sunday monthly electronic recycling:

http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/recycling/electric-sunday.htm


The service is for front lawns only, and you must request it (or if you no longer want the service, you must decline it). You do not need to do this every year. You only need to do it to start or stop the service. The form you need to use is available by clicking here: http://runnymeade.org/runnymeade/feature.html?feature_id=5&item_id=267
