BARRYBROOKE VILLAGE WILL HOST CURB APPEAL CONTEST AGAIN!
Thank you to all those who participated in the curb appeal contest last year! We will once again invite a panel of judges to come
to Barrybrooke and select winners. The grand prize winner will be awarded $50 and a free clubhouse rental. Second and third place winners will receive half off a clubhouse rental. Plaques will again be given to the three top winners. Judging will be done in early June. Watch the website or email for a definite date.
TOO MUCH PARTY AND NOT ENOUGH ROOM? We have the answer. The Barrybrooke Village Clubhouse is available for rental for only $50 for residents of Barrybrooke. A $100 deposit is held until your event is over. The clubhouse, with a large and inviting front room, dining room and kitchen can comfortably accommodate 50 people. Contact Cheryl Bordewick for a tour.
CHASE AWAY THE WINTER BLUES AND THINK ABOUT OUR AWESOME POOL!
The community pool will open Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 23 with pool hours of 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Bring your kids, grandkids or just a good book and enjoy the new pool furniture or socializing with neighbors. If you need a replacement key, they are $5.00.Call Area for more information 816-650-6718. Please note: Those homeowners whose HOA dues are not current lose their pool privileges, and like last year, will be posted at the pool.
PLAY BUNCO ON THE FIRST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH
Barrybrooke Village has a BUNCO group who play on the first Tuesday night of each month at 6:30. Currently they are looking for anyone who would want to be put on the sub list. No experience necessary, just need to be able to throw dice! Bring five dollars to go into the prize money. Call Joanne McGrath, 505-0747 if interested.
SIGN UP FOR A MEDITATION CLASS! Melanie Bartch and Rachel Hart will be leading a Meditation Group weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. beginning in April. Everyone is welcome to attend. Just show up!
If you would like to organize a class/activity to be held in the lower level of the clubhouse for free, contact Area Real Estate for more information 650-6718.
2014 HOA PROJECTS The focus this year will be replacing the retaining walls which are in the most critical conditions. As funds allow, more will be replaced. The 2014 budget (which can be viewed online at www.barrybrookehoa.com) includes $15,000 set aside for utility lines that may need to be replaced. In 2013, a water line to a four-plex had to be replaced and a sewer line to two-plex. As the units age, the HOA will take a proactive stance in having funds set aside for these emergencies. The painting of trim, which began last summer, will resume again in the spring. Those who want to contract with the painter, to paint garage doors (which is the homeowners responsibility) call Area, 8160-650-6718.
Out of town?
It is always a good idea to either stop the newspaper or ask someone to pick them up for you. Walking around the complex, sometimes there are 2-3 newspapers laying on some of the lawns. This is a notice to passersby that no one is home at that address and could encourage break-ins. Letting a neighbor know that you are away is also a good idea in event you need to be alerted of something at your home. Having a lamp on a timer when you are away is a good idea too. You can also contact the KANSAS CITY MISSOURI POLICE NORTH PATROL DIVISION at 816-437-6200 and request a special program called House to Watch, when calls for this service allows.
