Opportunities to Volunteer at the Old Bridge

The Old Bridge Preservation Society is always looking for eager people to serve in a variety of volunteer capacities.  We would love to have you be a part of our team.  We are looking for people to help out in a variety of ways – some in short term roles, other in long term roles.  Some sample opportunities are:

  • Decorating the Old Bridge for the different holidays
  • Helping to plan and/or help out at different events like Easter at the Old Bridge (April 20), Fourth of July at the Old Bridge (July 4), Christmas at the Old Bridge (Dec 3)
  • Helping to plan/or help out in different capacities at the Strawberry and Wine Festival (April 28)
  • Work in the Old Bridge Museum and/or Store throughout the year
  • Lead a History Walk (Thursdays, May 30 to August 29)
  • Help with the Young Explorers (Wednesdays, June 19 to August 14)

If you are interested in being a volunteer, email Barbara Hawthorne, OBPS Volunteer Coordinator at sassylassy@atmc.net.  She will be in touch and find the perfect place for your interests.

We have reached saturation point in the paper-back room at the library.  Starting immediately we cannot accept any paper-back books, either returns or donations.  Please take them to the thrift shop of your choice.  We expect to resume regular donations in 2 months.

Good afternoon Sea Trail.

Below is the comment that went out on the Town Council Meeting Agenda email today.

“The Public Works Department staff has been installing new speed limit signs within the Sea Trail community. The new speed limit on Clubhouse Road from Maples to Old Georgetown Road is now 25 MPH. The new speed limit on Clubhouse Road from Maples to Shoreline Drive West is now 20 MPH. Police Chief Klamar encourages motorist to keep an eye on their speedometer as officers will be enforcing the new speed limits.”

I believe the new speed limits will make our community safer for those who walk and ride bikes throughout Sea Trail. Please know that the officers will stop you and give you tickets if you are violating the speed limit.

Jack Phillabaum, STMA President

Good afternoon.
The Dine Around crew wants to remind everyone of the Dine Around on March 4th at The Sea Captains House. If you haven’t signed up yet, contact the Dunbars or Bergers.  Check https://seatrailma.com/march-dine-around-at-the-sea-captains-house/ for the details.

From the Finance Committee:

All 2019 dues and fees were due on January 31, and any unpaid balances are now overdue. The finance committee will be meeting Friday February 15 to apply a $50 late fee to all unpaid 2019 dues, so please get your checks to Debra Bordeaux by Friday noon to avoid having a late fee applied to your account. If you have any questions about your account, wish to schedule a payment or establish a payment plan, please contact Debra prior to Friday. If an approved payment plan is already in place or is established by Friday no late fee will be applied.

Starting on March 1st a 1% interest charge will be applied to all overdue accounts every month until the total balance owed is paid. In addition, the access cards attached to those accounts will be deactivated until full payment has been received. If full payment is received prior to March 15, there will be no fee to reactivate the cards; after March 15, there will be the customary $25 reactivation fee applied to the account to get the card activated again. The interest charge and card deactivation will not be applied to any accounts with an approved payment plan in place.

We regret having to take these steps, but each year we’re seeing an increase in the number of unpaid accounts early in the year. We can’t allow this trend to continue, it’s not fair to the members who pay on time and creates problems in our accounting system. If you have a good reason why you haven’t paid your obligations we’re more than willing to work with you, but we can’t do anything if we don’t hear from you.

John Rothermel
Treasurer, STMA

Did You Know We Have…

Frequently Asked Questions is an area on the website specifically to address quick questions such as How do I change my password, How do I submit an article to the Newsletter, How do I reserve a room in the MA Facilities, etc.  If you do not see the answer to your question listed, there is also a list of emails to receive a direct answer to your specific question.  Click here https://seatrailma.com/faqs/

The first Dine Around of 2019 will be Monday, March 4th hosted by Ken and Mary Lou Dunbar and Bill and Jeanine Berger. Please go to our website https://seatrailma.com for more details.

Our entire Rules handbook is going to be revised over the next several months. There will be changes made regarding access to facilities, usage of facilities, and vacant lot issues…more information will be forthcoming.

As we all know Debra Bordeaux is our Administrator for the STMA, she is NOT the administrator for the website also. She is receiving emails and phone calls for help with the website which she cannot answer.  You all know Debra, she would help if she could but she just can’t as this is not her role.  Please note:

Jack Phillabaum, STMA President
