Resident Board Member Update
"Hello Neighbors! We hope you are enjoying the fantastic spring weather. It’s nice to feel things are getting back to normal after the COVID pandemic period. As you know, the HOA held Board elections in March. Three members of the Board vacated their positions after several years of engaged and thoughtful service – Bill Atwill, Lisa Bradford, and Harry Pugh. All three spent countless hours over the last few years (4 years for Bill!) volunteering their time and attention to advance Willowsford initiatives and assist the transition from a Developer-controlled to a Resident-run community, and to navigate the circumstances of the Pandemic at the same time. We applaud their commitment and service." Continue Reading...
