His knowledge, zeal, and devoted service to this community is remarkable and deeply appreciated.

Spotlight on Committees:

Clubhouse:

Click here to see a list of the typical things going on at the Flemington Fields clubhouse, aside from official meetings of the condominium and the homeowners' associations.

Thank you very much to Clubhouse committee-persons , volunteering in this very vital and central function of our FFCOA community. In addition to important meetings, and the games played there, clubhouse 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.

Over the last year, Clubhouse committee members have been renewing, reorganizing, studying the process for rentals, keeping the supplies available, overseeing janitorial services and so on. Planning a Christmas Party has been added to this list. As many hands would spread the load a bit, we would love anyone to join the main group or start a subdivision (e.g. a Social sub-committee can involve trips, parties, luncheons, breakfast, etc). 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.

  

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 link above Who Ya Gonna Call?"
