Recent News

The regular bi-monthly, and the annual FFCOA Association meetings and election of FFCOA trustees were held Tuesday Nov 25th at 7pm. President Joan Ruby was re-elected for another term. No others had run for the board's 2 still-open positions. Some write-in votes will be explored to see if these individuals would be willing to serve.

Joan and our Treasurer/Secretary, Roger Ahrens, will be continuing in their respective roles and we are most fortunate to have them. Extremely busy since our last FFCOA meeting, they highlighted for us, the work related to Transition, the new Budget for 2015, and other important matters. Click thru here to see the agenda for the evening's back-to-back meetings.

Protect and Defend

On Saturday November 1st, thirty-three FFCOA residents attended a very special reception at the clubhouse.

Sounds of Sousa-style march tunes and Glenn Miller-style music greeted as we came to pay tribute to those who have served in the United States military. The room buzzed with plenty of conversation as all noshed on appetizers, met some new friends, and intently studied pictures and mementos brought by these vets, or by their spouse if they had gone on before.

Jerry Matcho called us to order, to formalize our salute. As we quieted, gathering round to face each other across the living room, it somehow felt like remembered family story-telling - some of our vets spoke of their military experiences... and more. They told of youthful expectations, funny stuff, some heart-felt emotions of sadness, disappointment, or just the plain irony living through those times. It was wonderful and we were glad to get that glimpse.

Don Cooper, Theresa Troegner, John Famula, Stan Cantilina, Roy Grimm, Walter Yarrow, and Joe Sauro were the veterans in attendance.

Afterward, the party planners, Karen Matcho, Doris Halstead, and MaryAnn Campbell, called everyone to the dining area for some dessert that included cake, apple pie, and ice cream. Mildred Postma brought some of her special sugar-free cream puffs. Our thanks to them for allowing us all the opportunity to stop and take notice, to acknowledge, and to express appreciation.

Fun at the Flemington Fields "Country Club"

Early in October, the rains came and cancelled the FF Mini Golf Outing at Pine Creek. But that didn't put a damper on the 28 enthusiasts who wouldn't want the weatherman to spoil the fun. The schedule was adjusted and the clubhouse became a recreation area.

Lunch was served first, and then the games began. Matt Andrejco supervised the "putting Tournament" which, after all the others were eliminated, Bob McCaffrey won the championship over Walter Yarrow in a very close contest.

Heartfelt and huge thankyou's go out to Matt Andrejco, and Jerry & Karen Matcho for this fantastic idea, making the arrangements, and nimbly outwitting Mother Nature when she didn't wanna cooperate!

Spotlight on Committees:

Clubhouse: Thank you very much to all Clubhouse committee-persons, volunteering in a very vital and central function of our FFCOA community, namely Patience Anderson, Yvonne Guarino, Barbara Lorio, Lee Prestipino, Helene Purzycki, Shirley Vill, and Evelyn Hamrah. Recently the committee has been renewing, reorganizing, studying the process for rentals, keeping the supplies available, overseeing janitorial services and so on. And we added planning a Christmas Party. We would love anyone to join the committee or start a subdivision - Social Committee. Social can include trips, parties, luncheons, breakfast, etc. In addition to the games played at the Clubhouse, the social events help us in getting to know and appreciate each other.

The Flemington Fields Handbook provides the basic rules for the clubhouse use. For a private rental, contact Access Property Management, Bob Seyfarth at 908-284-3426.

The Clubhouse Committee meets the 2nd Thursday of each month at 10 am at the clubhouse. Any resident is always welcome to attend our meetings. Suggestions and questions are always welcome at any time. The clubhouse is there for your enjoyment - so enjoy. -- Evelyn for the committee

Without any doubt, FFCOA residents always look forward

Spotlight on Committees:

Building and Grounds: Assists and advises the Board of Trustees in an effort to preserve the physical integrity and aesthetic quality of our community. Periodically, at the request of the Board, takes maintenance surveys making recommendations to the Trustees. May undertake research on behalf of the Trustees where it is time consuming. This group sometimes reviews a submitted Building Modification Form when Residents apply to the Board to make a change to a common area or limited common area of their unit.

Timeframe/mission is medium and long-term planning. Emphasis is NOT on daily/weekly problem solving & operational issues - that is the province of either our Builder (RVD - Raritan Valley Developers), or our Property Manager, Bob Seyfarth of Access Property Management. [Bob's service days for us at FFCOA are part-time Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday starting at 9am. However he monitors at other days/times for truly urgent situations, or to sustain momentum on a project.] For clarification, see new link Who Ya Gonna Call?"

Announcement: Please Volunteer to fill Openings on FFCOA Board of Trustees

All of the residents in good standing are asked to thoughtfully consider volunteering to come onboard and fill a currently open position on the Board of Trustees. We would be most happy to speak with you about this possibility. So reach out to any of us. Our Resident Handbook describes the Board:

The affairs of the association are governed by a five member Board of Trustees elected by association members. Trustees serve without compensation for a two-year term. The board is invested with all the rights, powers and duties necessary for the proper administration of the association as provided in Article V, page 23 of the By-Laws.

Note: for the time being, the Sponsor for this development holds one of the five seats on the board, leaving 4 positions for Unit Owners.

Additional detail on the Board and governance is available in the FFCOA Bylaws which are posted on the website - use the "Documents" link off this homepage.
