MAY 20, 2022 – MAY 28, 2022


NOTICE FROM HOA BOARD

At our meeting held  5/14/2022 it was decided that the H.O.A. board could not add another member under the existing by-Laws of 2007.  To correct this oversight, an amendment was made to the HOA Meeting Minutes dated 3/30/2022 stating the vote was invalid.

 On May 14, 2022 the new by-laws dated 2022 were approved. The board held an emergency meeting directly afterwards and approved the addition of another board member taking place with the upcoming election.

 A copy of the amended minutes can be found here: Amended Meeting Notes

Clarification on Voting Procedures for HOA Candidates

 It has come to our attention that many people who had  received the Candidate  Election Voting Instructions are having problems voting.

To vote electronically simply hit REPLY to the E-mail that was sent to you. Type in the names of the two people you are voting for. Type in your name and address and hit SEND. That's it!

If you prefer not to use this method, click the file that says ballot. Once loaded you must PRINT the ballot. Once printed, use a pen and circle the candidates name or write in someone else. Complete the form by adding your name and address on the bottom. Take this form to the Clubhouse and deposit it into the ballot box.

Hope this clears up the confusion. VOTING CLOSES AT 12 NOON ON MAY 26!

Almost Time to Vote - For 2022 we have two (2) HOA Board of Director openings.  Under the Brookshire Community Association Bylaws, any open position must be filled by June 30th, the date that terms expire.  Therefore, we are again holding an election.  This year, we have three (3) candidates seeking to join the Board and serve our community.  Please go to our website, www.brookshireweb.com, and click on “Election 2022” for more information.

BROOKSHIRE VETERAN’S NEWS:

Displaying the United States flag is a sign of pride in our country.  It is a sign of honor and respect for those who died in service to our country.  It is a sign of appreciation to those fellow citizens who are serving or have served in our military services.

The newly formed Brookshire Veteran’s Group is asking all Brookshire residents to fly their flags this coming Memorial Day weekend.  Veterans who have a flag representing their branch of service please display it as well.  If you do not have a United States flag or branch of service flag and are considering obtaining one, please contact Chuck Rost at: crostmd@aol.com  Perhaps we can save money through a group purchase.

​In the future we plan to post additional information related to displaying the flag.  This will include a list of suggested days to display the flag.  However, it is perfectly acceptable and patriotic to display your flag any day or daily.

 The Brookshire Veteran’s Group is interested in sending words of support to active duty service persons throughout the year.  Any resident willing to provide contact information for active duty persons for us to send a card, please contact: Mary Rost via email: mocatrn@aol.com


Brookshire Single Women’s Group:  We are pleased to announce that our monthly luncheons will resume as of Thursday, May 26th, 2022.

All single women who reside in Brookshire are invited to a Bring a Dish Luncheon at the Community Center on Thursday, May 26 from 11:30-1:00. By now, you should have received an email or hand delivered letter of invitation and a brief survey from Bridget Dwyer who is now coordinating the group. Please RSVP Yes/No to Bridget Dwyer by Thursday, May 19, and indicate what dish you would like to share with the group.  There has been a large increase in the number of single women residing in Brookshire over the past few years, and we look forward to meeting you all and hearing suggestions about how you would like this group to stay active and engaged. If there is sufficient interest from the single women who are working during the day, we hope to plan an Evening Coffee/Tea hour on a monthly basis. Please plan to attend!
