  • Annual Meeting January 19, 2017

    On behalf of my fellow board members, we hope the holidays left you feeling grateful for family and enthusiastic for the year ahead. Or if you’re like me, feeling as though you need a serious change in diet and a 2 week vacation in the Bahamas. Maybe we can all get a group rate?

    In all seriousness, 2017 promises to be an eventful year for our community. Deercreek will be 29 years old and undergo the statutory preservation of its governing documents. The Board will also be updating the Association’s Rules and Regulations to reflect our diverse and growing community while maintaining the high standards that we’ve all come to appreciate and respect.

    Three Board of Director positions have reached the end of their three year term. Those seats are currently filled by Kristen Wiley, Pete Gentry and Nick Simonic. Four people have put their names in the hat, ballots were mailed out in December and the results will be tabulated and announced during the January 19th Deercreek Country Club Owners Association Annual Meeting at 7pm. The purpose of this meeting is to hold elections and a review of the past year. The regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting will be held on January 26th. Property Owners are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

    On a personal note, it’s been a pleasure serving on the BOD. I’m one year into my term and admit, it’s been a learning process. But I’m grateful for my neighbors, friends and fellow board members, their guidance and patience are much appreciated. 2017 will mark our 20th year in this community, I’ve played on its tennis team, held birthday parties at the pool, watched my little girl giggle on the tire swing and pushed her bike down the sidewalk while holding my breath. Now I’m teaching her to drive in our neighborhood, while still holding my breath! All of those memories and experiences add up to home; this is home, for me, for you. I’m grateful and thankful to be a part of Deercreek.

  • Some great 2017 New Year's resolutions

    From the Access Control Committee

    By Tommy Walter

    • If you must walk or run on the roads of Deercreek always do so facing the traffic. And if running with a partner, run single file.
    • If you are riding a bike, ride with the traffic. If you are riding with a partner, ride single file.
    • Remember the speed limit in Deercreek is 30 miles per hour, and Deercreek starts at the entrance off Southside Blvd., not at the guardhouse.
    • Remember to add guests names to the gate entry system before parties and gatherings and/or provide the gate with a list of names for the occasion.
    • Keep all vehicles and residences locked. Do not leave things of value in plain view in vehicles.
    • Only licensed drivers can drive motorized vehicles of any type in Deercreek.

    Dead Wake (The last crossing of the Lusitania) by Erik Larson.

    In January we will read and discuss Dead Wake (The last crossing of the Lusitania) by Erik Larson.

    On May 1, 1915 with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner , as richly appointed as an English country house, sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool. It was carrying a record number of children and infants. For months, German U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But the Lusitania was one of the era's greatest transatlantic "greyhounds" - the fastest liner in service - and her captain, William Thomas Turner, placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe from attack.

    Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of the game. As the Lusitania made her way toward Liverpool, an array of forces both grand and small - hubris, a chance fog, a closely guarded secret and more - all converged to produce one of the great disasters of history.

    ___________

    We will meet at the home of Jill Mountan on Monday, January 16th at 10:00am

    Our discussion will be followed by lunch prepared by the hostess.

    For more information about the Book Club please contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net or 363-1618. We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month at 10:00 followed by lunch.

    Chalk Paint Demonstration

    Tuesday, January 24 10 am at the Club

    Chalk Paint Demonstration by Jennie Migliarese

    This is a new technique, using Annie Sloan paints and wax, to give an old piece of furniture a new look without having to strip and refinish it. Jennie Migliarese lives in Deercreek and is a woman of many talents! She and her husband, Dominic, own a tire retreading facility and dump truck company in Jax. She is an avid DIYer, loves CrossFit training and long distance hiking and camping. Jennie said, “I work in a predominantly men’s world, but I love interior design as well. I started doing the chalk painting because I love taking something ugly and dated and making it fashionable again, instead of going into the landfill.” So she is recycling at home AND at work! Come out and meet her and learn a new skill that might transform one of your old, sad pieces of furniture into a showpiece.

  • Yuletide Decors!

    Did you all notice the new decorations at the Gatehouse and at the Deercreek entrance? Aren’t they beautiful? Cary Flynn, our President, has worked to make Deercreek look bright, festive and elegant this year. Many thanks to all who volunteered to get swags hung, ribbons attached, lights lit and electricity connected. Our Holiday Gate House Committee, Connie Davis, Sandy Montgomery and Julie Howell did a wonderful job of shopping and ordering new lights, greenery, ribbon and poinsettias and then getting another group of volunteers, Lorraine Clancy, Linda George, Marcia Rose, Cary Flynn and Anne Kleuppel to install them. Special thanks to Linda George for donating the sleigh and to Danny Connors and his staff for doing the hard stuff. Well done!
