Can you help Weybridge with landscaping coordination?

While we’re all nestled away in Weybridge this cold and snowy winter, it’s easy to forget spring and summer are coming. Believe it or not, in just a couple more months spring will be here! And once the sunshine, rain, and warmth return, everything outside our windows will start to grow again — the grass, shrubs, trees, flowers, and more.

We manage Weybridge’s green growth primarily through our landscaping agreement with BrightView. But that relationship — like our grass, turf, and mulch — requires some management. That’s why one of the most important volunteer roles in Weybridge is our “Landscaping Chair” — the person that acts as the central point of contact for residents and BrightView alike. This role keeps BrightView focused on high-quality services and communicates with individual residents about any concerns and their own landscaping responsibilities.

And we need a new Landscaping Chair. Can you help?

The Landscaping Chair Role

Like all the volunteer jobs in Weybridge, this person is a resident of Weybridge and spends a bit of time most months coordinating landscaping for the community, keeping the neighborhood beautiful while holding down our quarterly dues. This role talks with our BrightView service manager, takes calls and emails from residents about landscaping questions or concerns, and intermittently monitors the quality of the work BrightView teams are performing throughout Weybridge. The Chair also often attends quarterly Weybridge Board meetings (but not always).

To be clear, the Landscaping Chair does not mow lawns or weed flower beds! At most the Chair will occasionally walk around the neighborhood to see how our landscaping is doing and chat with residents about grass, trees, shrubs, and so forth. The job is all about observation, communication, and coordination.

New Chair Needed Now

Our most recent chair, Weybridge resident Scott Jones, had to resign due to professional workload concerns. So before the new season of landscaping gets started, we need a new volunteer from the community. Could it be you? We hope so!

Want to learn more about the role? Contact our new Weybridge Board President — Lori York — at weybridgepresident@gmail.com or 614-286-4048.

Weybridge remembers Mabel Clapp

We regret to announce long-time Weybridge resident Mabel Clapp (9117 Muirkirk Dr) passed away on Monday, January 24, 2002. She was an amazing 103 years old. Weybridge celebrated Mabel’s 100th birthday back in 2018.

All are welcome to send flowers or leave condolences on her memorial page.

Mabel was born to Italian immigrants Peter and Virginia Fiori at the end of World War I. She lived her whole life in central Ohio, growing up on the west side of Columbus and later in Upper Arlington and Dublin. She graduated from West High School in 1936, worked at Mills Buffet, where she met her husband Ferdinand. She retired from Huntington National Bank in 1988. She influenced three generations of her family through her devotion, quiet strength, and selflessness.

Mabel was preceded in death by husband Ferdinand and daughter Melinda Wolf. She is survived by her son Eric Clapp, her grandchildren Michelle Clapp Hohler, Kevin Clapp, Bethany Wolf Sullivan, Anneliese Wolf Johnson, Susanna Wolf Huffman, and her great grandchildren Corrina, Brock Hohler, Danica, A. J. Clapp, Emma, Jack Sullivan, Mallory, Weston Johnson, and Veronica Huffman.

A reception will be held Friday, February 4, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the John Quint Treboni Funeral Home (1177 W 5th Ave, Columbus, OH 43212). This includes a 4:00 p.m. Prayer Service hosted by Deacon Frank Iannarino.

Mabel will be laid to rest in Sunset Cemetery (6959 W Broad St, Galloway, OH 43119) at a later date.
