Email Notification List/Halloween Event NEWS
We are now offering two options for Email notifications. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be added to either list and begin to be informed about Martins Pond issues.
Martins Pond Announcements – this list you will receive announcements and news only and you will not be able to reply, nor will anyone else. This list is ideal for those of you who receive too many emails and do not want to hear or engage in discussions. It is also for our legislators, and other entities interested in our activities on a more periodic basis.
Martins Pond Discussions – this list, can be used for replies to announcements and neighborhood discussions of issues, but you must follow the rules: The discussion list is not to be used for political ads, jokes, sales or give-a-way items, issues other than pond related issues, or advertisements of any kind.
Please be careful with language. Name calling is bad manners. Sometimes in discussion some unusual opinions will surface. Comment carefully. The discussions list is a very important way to discuss things as we have in the past like crime, paving issues, ideas for improvement of the pond, lost and found boats and cats, and especially during floods.
We are holding our 13th Annual, yup 13th! Children’s Haunted Playground Saturday October 20th 5:30-9PM at Clarke Park.
Volunteers always needed. Most pond associations have memberships and dues. We do not. We want everyone included. We only hold our fundraisers and search for grants and work with the Town for our money. So if you want to support our efforts, come to our events, and help out in some way if you can.
Here are dates/times when your help could be of assistance. Can you give us 2 hours in any time slot??? Volunteering counts as community service if your high schooler needs hours. Children in Elementary School must volunteer to work with their parent. Middle Schoolers can volunteer but parent must email me to give permission. High Schoolers can call or email me themselves. Actor and volunteer meeting will be at Clarke Park 5PM October 14th, rain or shine.
