Annual Business Meeting and Cocktail Party Recap

Dear Neighbors,

On June 14, 2019, we held our Annual OFS Business Meeting and Cocktail Party at the Setauket Neighborhood House. The meeting was attended by 60 residents, and marked the 90th anniversary of our historic neighborhood.

The most significant outcome of the meeting was the raise of our annual dues to $100/per household. This change was approved almost unanimously, with the intention of providing the OFS Board with more financial flexibility to cover the costs of maintaining the OFS common areas and the social features of our community.  

The other main topic of discussion was the extensive tree clearing that occurred on two recently purchased properties. Many of our neighbors were understandably upset about these breaches to the covenants. The Board has agreed to reach out to new homeowners and realtors that represent OFS properties to provide them with a copy of our covenants and communicate the features that make OFS such a special place to live. 

Two additional concerns expressed by our neighbors were: 1) Mailboxes are not clearly marked with home addresses, making it difficult for emergency personnel to find houses and 2) Cars are speeding on our streets, leading to an unsafe environment for all.

In happy news, it was reported that the three previous OFS clean-up efforts were well-attended and greatly improved the appearance of the major “islands.” Furthermore, the raised bed brick project at the OFS entrance on Mount Grey Road and Highwood Road has gotten tremendous support from our neighbors, and will be completed in the next few weeks. 

The art show held at the annual meeting, entitled “Loving the place we call home,” received nine wonderfully creative entries from OFS residents. After a vote, four winning pieces were chosen to be featured in the next edition of the OFS Directory.

Finally, it was announced that Dale Hodges (Hospitality Co-Chair), Susan Tyson (Social Chair) and Christina Maffia (VP) are stepping down from the OFS Board, after a number of years of dedicated service. The residents elected to fill the newly open board positions are Stephen DelGiorno (VP), Teri Viteritti (Social Chair), and Suja Gurunathan (Communications Co-Chair). 

We thank everyone for contributing to our wonderful community and look forward to seeing everyone at the next OFS gathering!

Celebrate our 90th anniversary!

Cocktail Party Success!

Thanks to all the wonderful neighbors who made last night’s cocktail party a huge success!  The conversation was terrific, the food tasty, and the beautiful Neighborhood House a wonderful venue.  Many thanks to the folks there for their gracious assistance.

The OFSPOA’s annual business meeting was held during the festivities.  President Tricia Telemaque highlighted the year’s accomplishments, reviewed the association’s finances and presided over the election of our newest board members — Susan Tyson, Patty Yantz, and Kathy Massi.  New neighbors were welcomed and departing neighbors wished a fond farewell.

We missed those of you who could not make it and hope to see you at our end-of-summer picnic!
