NEW! Craneridge April 2019 Newsletter

The Newsletter will be mailed out or e-mailed to residents this week, but in the meantime, please check-out the PDF version on-line now:
Craneridge Newsletter April 2019

Also, in order to more effectively and efficiently conduct Association business and to facilitate improved communications with residents; the Craneridge HOA desires to start utilizing electronic communications for the Association’s business and communications, which includes noticing of meetings, general mailings, newsletters and owner account billings. By utilizing electronic communications, the HOA will save money otherwise spent on postage and copies. We are also looking to update the residential directory.

Please sign-up here: https://craneridge.org/signup/

Craneridge Earth Day to be held May 18th at 9:00AM

Each spring we get together for one morning to spruce up the common property of Craneridge. Neighbors pitch in to clean up the Pool Center, Mail Center and Meadow as needed.  This year we will meet at the Pool Center on May 18th at 9:00AM.  Please bring rakes, shovels, trowels etc. to help with the work.  If you own a pickup truck please consider driving it to help with hauling.  We typically work until noontime when a lunch is provided.

This is a great opportunity to meet some of your neighbors, have fun and help our community at the same time.

You can sign-up for specific projects on-line: Earth Day Sign-up link
There will also be a sign-up sheet posted at the Mail Center.

If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Eric Twichell at 716-327-1956.  We look forward to seeing you on May 18th!!

Volunteer needed to Chair the Pool Committee!

Craneridge HOA is seeking a volunteer to chair the pool committee. The Committee Chair will be responsible for working with a team of resident volunteers to manage the pool including hiring and managing lifeguards, ordering pool supplies and chemicals, ensuring safe and healthy operation of the pool facility.  The Committee will also work with the board of directors to recommend updates to the property and any changes to rules for the use of the pool.  There are currently a handful of experienced volunteers willing to participate on the committee and share their knowledge and experience, but we are in need of a chairperson.

Interested Parties should contact:
Jeff Randall | 716-913-6507 | j.e.randall@pga.com
