Memorial Day 2020

Memorial Day was created to honor the many American men and women who died in military service. They made the ultimate sacrifice for our way of life, our freedom, our liberty. I honor you and all who currently serve in the military for not only what you currently do, but for what you might have to do. THANK YOU!

Memorial Day in Weybridge

Memorial Day

Monday is Memorial Day, a day when we honor the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives in service of our country. While we won’t be able to get together to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we can still honor them while staying safe:

  • Place an American flag in your yard; if you have a flagpole, fly the flag at half-mast until noon
  • Observe the national Moment of Remembrance by pausing for one minute at 3 PM
  • Send a letter of thanks to a veteran or a care package to a soldier
  • Create patriotic crafts for your home or chalk art outside
  • Make a red, white and blue recipe
  • Watch a patriotic movie

Thank you to all those selfless Americans and their families who gave so much to protect our country.

Weybridge property inspections on Thursday, May 14

Every year the Weybridge board conducts a whole-neighborhood property inspection, walking through all of Weybridge, including through backyards and around our homes. [This duty is noted in the Code of Regulations, Article III, section 3 (e).]

This year Weybridge walk-around inspections are set for Thursday, May 14. You’ll see Board members with clipboards either starting around 2:00pm.

What does the board look for? Clear violations of the Warranty Deed that need to be fixed, such as paint problems, safety concerns, landscaping issues, or anything that’s out of character for the community or may impact home values.

If any problems are found, they are documented and homeowners are made aware of the issues within a few weeks, along with a request to fix the noted problems in a reasonable amount of time.

Finally, given the active COVID-19 pandemic, board members will maintain appropriate physical distances during the inspections. Additionally, the board is exploring ways to help residents with addressing requested fixes, given financial hardships presented by the pandemic and the additional time it may take to find appropriate contractors.

Meanwhile, the board will see you Thursday — maybe through the window this year!

May Ladies Lunch is canceled

Weybridge Ladies… unfortunately COVID-19 precautions are still needed, leading to another cancelation for our monthly lunch. Organizer Sharon Foster let us know this week the May 2020 lunch — originally planned for May 21 — is now off the calendar.

For the moment, Sharon is hoping to proceed with the June gathering as scheduled, which is actually a dinner (not lunch) at Red Lobster on Sawmill Road. Either way we’ll announce it here on the Weybridge website and update our Calendar page. In the meantime, we hope everyone is staying home and carefully defending against the active pandemic.
