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.

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.
