David Juszynski - President
Iggy Taylor - Vice President
With Joe Biden as my neighbor and Valerie Bertinelli down the street I grew up in the blue-collar town of Claymont DE. Always having a love for music I formed my first band at the age of thirteen and began playing school dances. It was at one such dance I met Linda. We dated throughout high school and married in 1973.
In 1974 I put music on hold and got a “real job” with the Marriott Corporation. We relocated to Northern VA. where we raised our three children. I held numerous leadership positions during the twenty-two years I was employed. I left Marriott in 1995 to move back to Delaware to care for my Mom and Dad who both suffered from Alzheimer’s. I returned to music calling myself “Bad Betsy”. For three years I played and wrote music as I fought for senior citizens rights and benefits. I testified in Delaware’s senate and appeared on numerous radio talk programs. I donated all my earnings to The Alzheimer’s Association.
After my folks passed, I took over a Burger King franchise. Starting with my first unit in Wilmington DE I grew my company to a total of ten restaurants in five states. Being on the road all the time gave me the opportunity to continue my passion for music playing in Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City and Atlantic City.
In 2008, my wife Linda suffered a massive brain aneurysm and was confined to a nursing home indefinitely. Faced with overwhelming medical bills and ridiculous laws I sold my franchise and stopped cutting my hair. I downsized and in 2010 built my home on Cambridge Drive. After three years of living apart, Linda was able to finally return home where she belonged. She peacefully passed away at home in 2017.
My passion for music continues playing in both Brookshire’s “Fun Band” and the local rock band “Off Our Rockers”. I continued to serve the community as both a member and chairman of the rules committee and designed and maintained the community website for years. I am currently on the Home Owners Board of Directors.
I firmly believe Linda and I were delivered to Brookshire for a reason. I feel blessed every day I wake up and step outside my front door. It truly is one big family. There is not a day goes by that I don’t witness the overwhelming generosity, compassion and love that Brookshire residents have.
Teresa Paporello - Board Member
Born and raised in Sharpsville Pa, a small town very much like Manheim in the far western end of the state. As a graduate of Grove City College, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and subsequently moved to the Philadelphia area where I worked for the Social Security Administration.
While living in NJ, my husband served for 20 years on the board of Trustees for our community lake association, often affording me the duty of being his secretary, sounding board, support system, and go-between.
For the past 9 years, I’ve also worked part-time from home as an independent distributor for Reliv International, a food science company. Meanwhile, I have always maintained involvement with music ministry programs in whatever church we joined, and have formed and then directed children’s choirs for almost 30 years.
Based on the proximity to our daughter and my PA roots, we bought our home here last November where I feel beyond blessed and thrilled to be involved in as many activities of Brookshire life as possible.
Bruce Augenstein - Board Member
During my first term serving on the HOA board and as chair of the Election Committee, I headed up the projects to upgrade the Community Center projector, the upgrade of the exercise equipment, and a major revamp of the board election process.
Now, after taking a year off to see the world (or at least Ephrata), I'm rejoining the board to see what we can accomplish over the next three years.
As to my background, before retiring in 2005 I'd spent nearly four decades in the computer and high tech industries. First in software development and management, then in sales and sales management, and finally (crayon firmly in hand) in national and international marketing programs. This was with IBM, Burroughs Corporation, Digital Equipment Corporation, Hewlett Packard and Nortel Networks.
Sallie and I are the proud parents of two sons. Commander Rich Augenstein (call sign "Augie") is a retired, 22-year career fighter pilot with the United Sates Navy, and Chris Augenstein is a vice-president with the multi-billion dollar Cisco Systems' Global Enterprise Division.
I am currently a member of both the Rules and Property Committees, and I co-chair (with Jere Buchter) the Computer Committee.
Linda O’Connell - Board Member
Term begins 7/1/18
I was born and raised in the small village of Waterford, Virginia. I lived there until I graduated high school and took a secretarial job at the Loudoun Mutual Insurance Company. I married after graduation and had two daughters, Emily, who lives in Washington State and Allison who lives in Lancaster with her husband Jeff and their baby boy, Asa. I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom to them..Once they started school I worked as a teacher at the Montessori Preschool program in the Presbyterian Church located in the neighboring town of Leesburg. I was an active member of the PTA, Brownies, Girl Scouts for my girls. I was the mom who followed the girl's tennis team and volley ball team to support my daughters. I was the mom driving them to dance class and all the other things they were active in.
Once my children were grown enough, I followed my dream of becoming an Equine Sports Massage Therapist and studied at Equissage. I worked at the school for awhile after I became certified and then went to work at the big dressage barns in Middleburg, Virginia and the Charlestown Racetrack. It was very satisfying work as I saw horses regain their health and gain their performance back.
My husband and I purchased Little Bit Farm and raised paint horses. He competed in team penning events and I competed in halter and Western Pleasure. We held numerous events to benefit the local Humane Society as well as family fun. We were host to the Blue Ridge 4-H Horse and Pony Club and gave riding lessons. We had many positive,educational gatherings, to promote wellness, that we could all benefit from.
A lot of love was shown to me and I was shown how to give back. Horses taught me a lot about energy and how I could use mine to create an atmosphere of peace, compassion and understanding. Respect was a key factor. I saw how I can carry this over to everyone in my life and it works well.
My husband developed Lou Gehrig's disease and I took care of him in our home until he passed away. After that I opened up our farm as a bed and breakfast and called it New Beginnings. It was a new beginning for me. I rented out the guest cottage on our farm to people and served them breakfast in my dining room. I would serve them wonderful homemade things like hot apple tarts and quiches and my business became very popular. I learned how to start a business and make it thrive. I learned a lot more about people too. The more I just loved and enjoyed everyone at my farm, the more I saw them again.
I moved here five years ago to live near my daughter and now she brings my grand baby here for me to take care of and enjoy one day a week. So many giggles and laughs. He is a big fan of our sidewalks for his tricycle. I have a very positive approach in life and I do enjoy seeing everyone in Brookshire. I do believe in making it the, positive, kind and welcoming place that it is. I would like to think that we have the reputation for being friendly and welcoming and I would love to be a part of extending this as a member of our HOA.
