DEVONSHIRE ANNUAL MEETING
Tuesday, October 20
Kings Ridge Clubhouse
Originally scheduled for March 24, 2020, the postponed Annual Meeting has been rescheduled for October 20 at 3:00 pm.
This is your opportunity to elect or re-elect two members of your Board of Directors. The two current board members (Phyllis Ledbetter and Ron Wetmore) have volunteered to serve again. At this time, no other candidates have come forward but additional nominations can be made at the meeting. You, as a resident, vote on the candidates who will serve for three years.
Immediately following the Annual Meeting, the Board members will elect the officers for the balance of this year’s term that will end in March, 2021. The Board, will then have a regular agenda of items to consider. The agenda will include follow-up discussion on the Spectrum bulk cable contract. It is scheduled to expire in December 2021. Another topic will be the budget for 2021 and the resulting monthly assessment paid by our residents beginning in January.
If you are unable to be “in person”, you can also attend “virtually” by telephone. Instructions to do so, are as follows:
When prompted enter Access Code: 514-687-693
The Board urges you to attend. It promises to be an informative session.
Last Wednesday, we in Devonshire, took time out to “pause for the pledge”. A little way to check on our neighbors and, more importantly, to demonstrate our appreciation for all who are going above and beyond to keep us safe and healthy.
The idea has resonated not only here in Devonshire but elsewhere in other Kings Ridge neighborhoods. Information has been shared about our exercise with others.
Devonshire will continue the activity again this coming Wednesday. Hopefully, more of our neighbors will join in. As we did last Wednesday, at 10:30 a.m. we ask that you come outside, greet your neighbors and recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. If you don’t have a flag, join your neighbor who has one and share the experience with them. Of course, please maintain “social distancing” of at least 6 feet apart from one another.
We have been requested by many to continue this practice every Wednesday while we endure this Corona virus pandemic.
DEVONSHIRE’S PAUSE FOR THE PLEDGE
In this current disturbing time of fighting the Corona Virus, a suggestion has come from our neighbor,
Gail Domenico, on Kingswood Ct.
Since we are in a mode of self-distancing to help in the prevention of spreading this disease, why not demonstrate our support for all of the efforts being put forth to eradicate this deadly virus.
Her suggestion is to take a moment out of our day and come outdoors to recite the pledge of allegiance to our flag. This will serve several purposes: It will let your neighbor know that you are OK. It will also be a way to say to our first responders, our doctors and nurses, all of the workers who continue to provide services and our civic leaders that we appreciate all that they are doing.
To get started, we ask that all residences who have them to display their American flag. On Wednesday, March 25th at 10:30 am, come outside and recite the pledge. No flag? Walk to a neighbor’s house who has one and join them in the pledge.
She suggested that we can continue this every Wednesday, at the same time, until we know that we are free to move about and enjoy all of the things Devonshire, Kings Ridge and Florida has to offer.
PAUSE FOR THE PLEDGE
GOD BLESS THE USA
