Hello neighbors, I hope everyone had a great Christmas Season and I wish you all a very Happy New Year.  I enjoy preparing the SLOA Web Site.  Mark has given me a suggestion which I feel would be helpful.  I am going to implement it within the next couple of weeks.  It would be convenient to make other changes at the same time.  I am soliciting other suggestions at this time.  The Web Site belongs to the neighborhood and is for our use.  Care must be used to protect personal information.  Our member’s area has served well for many things.  Please post suggestions here or by an e-mail to me.  Dean.


Mark’s suggestion.

We have been getting neighbors asking to send an email announcing that they have something for sale.  The HOA's intent is not to clog "in boxes" yet having the capability to post something on a site only available to HOA members seems to be a reasonable solution. If this can be set up when could we expect it to be available to the HOA along with instructions on how to post items? Also I would like to see a time limit in which something is posted.....say 30 days.....after that it is removed from the site automatically.

Thanks, Mark

Congratulations to Pam and Bob Godwin who won the competition for most beautiful spring yard.  The house that was owned by Aimee Sauer and is currently for sale was awarded second place.  As shown in the attached picture the Godwins have combined a beautiful variety of pink shades in the flower bed surrounding their crepe myrtle. The judges commented particularly on their inviting entrance way. 


There are many lovely yards in Somerset Lake. Outside judges look especially for color coordination and shrubs, especially azaleas, that are left pruned in a natural style rather than rounded or squared off. 


Thanks, Kathie Gillies

October 29, 2010 - Fall Block Party

I would like to thank the neighbors on Shropshire North and Shropshire Main for hosting the Fall Block Party. The weather was beautiful and the cool night air was so refreshing after a long hot summer. It really put everyone in a party mood. The attendance was wonderful. We had 53 neighbors who came out to celebrate. The food was delicious---we have a lot of good cooks is our neighborhood. We all enjoyed eating ,drinking, and socializing with SLOA neighbors. The fire pits really added to our fun and festive atmosphere. Many thanks to Nancy Herthum, Kathy Gillies, Heidi Fux, Trevah Oliver, Dannah McCauley and Margot Nickle for their hard work. Great job ladies!

March 20, 2010 Lake Clean UP

Saturday, March 20, 2010 a group of volunteer residents met behind our levy to clean up some of the debris that had been deposited on Somerset Lake property. This debris washed up during the winter flooding. This clean-up was coordinated by your SLOA Landscape Committee. We were excited with the number of residents who pitched in for clean up and amazed ourselves with how much we accomplished. The City came and picked up all of our bags and piles of sticks from the Greenway. Thanks to all who participated.

The Landscape Committee is planning another beautification project for our neighborhood. On a weekend between April 17th and May 15th, 2010 we will purchase a palette of Bermuda sod and use 8 X 6 pieces to sod the slopes of the levy where there is erosion. We will plan the date around an extended weather forecast that includes rain after the planting date. We hope for a large community participation for this necessary project and will ask all participants to bring a drink & snack to share on the levy when we finish our work.

We actually had fun during our clean up and hope to see even more folks for our sodding party. Stay tuned for dates and specifics

We have open places on our Committee and hope more residents will join the Landscape Committee.
