Members of the community came together for the Fall picnic last Saturday. About 40 people attended for fellowship, games and food. One of the highlights of this year’s picnic was a selection of chilis, across a range of spices and flavors—all excellent. After the dinner, Zach Curry conducted a brief community meeting. We discussed a proposal to protect the dock area with a gate, the plan to distribute a covenant survey and a proposal to make real estate signs more consistent and attractive, with assistance to those with for-sale-by-owner properties.
With respect to the dock area gate proposal, several asked why we should install a gate at the dock when an entrance gate would protect not only the dock but the entire community. The consensus was that the dock gate proposal provided an immediate, inexpensive alternative while the community gate solution was still being developed. The cost, logistical complexity, and lack of community consensus on the community gate means that we still have some work to do during which the dock area needs to be protected.
The covenant committee would like specific feedback from the community before they proceed. Having a sense of what the community feels most important will allow them to focus. All property owners will receive a letter covering history, status, and the process going forward.
There was also concern about the amount of time it takes for county police, fire, and ems services to respond to calls from Seabrook Point. The Board committed to see what could be done to improve responsiveness.

There will be no luncheons in November or December. Everyone will be busy for the holidays.
The next luncheon will be January 26, 2016 (already). Hetty Nijman has moved into her condo and gracefully wants to have the luncheon at her new home. We might be asked to bring a dish or some goodie, but if you can’t just bring yourself. We’ll send directions and phone numbers in an email.
Fall is upon us, and we are making preparations for our annual Seabrook Point Community Chili Cook Off and Fall Party. It is scheduled for Saturday, October 24th, 2015 from 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm. This is a community-wide event, and we would like to gather together with as many of our neighbors as possible. There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, and drinks provided for everyone. All you need to do is bring yourselves, and, if possible, your favorite dessert. Also, if you feel that your chili is something special, here is a chance to show it off.
Please RSVP by phone or with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we will have the appropriate amount of food prepared.
We are planning on having a short community meeting at 6:45 pm to discuss the progress of the Covenant rewrite process and answer any questions the community might have. Let us know if you would be willing to help plan this event.
