We are saddened to report the passing of our friend and neighbor Richard Ross. Richard told us earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer and was undergoing treatment. Richard died at his daughter’s home on April 18, 2023. His obituary is at this link.
After a career with Verizon, Richard formed a small business in addition to doing consulting work with communications companies. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman.
Martha passed away almost a year ago, June 18, 2022. Martha was a lifelong educator and librarian with a deep love of books and reading, which she shared with others.
Richard and Martha’s weekend and vacation home was at 110 Presley Drive.
Richard has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the “Prevent Cancer Foundation” or “The Martha Scott Ross Literacy Fund” at www.cfrrr.org.
The meadowlarks have returned to the big field behind the houses on Potomac Drive. As of April 17, two pairs have been observed — one near the well house, the other behind the Logan’s at 236 Potomac Dr.
Meadowlarks nest on the ground which is why we prohibit use of 4-wheeleers or any other vehicles in the big field. More info about the Eastern Meadowlark.
The previously announced Board of Directors meeting was held on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Minutes will be posted on the website as soon as all Board members have reviewed them for accuracy.
About 1-1/2 miles before you enter our neighborhood, the road passes Kritter Korner, complete with alpaca, llamas, goats, peacocks, guinea fowl, chickens, several dogs, and a long-haired cat.
Each spring a couple of Aussie sheep shearers travel up the East Coast, stopping along the way to shear sheep, alpaca, and any other critter that needs shearing.
Dave Hancock, our neighbor at Kritter Korner, has scheduled his alpaca to be shorn on SUNDAY, APRIL 16. In the past, shearing started early — by 7:30 AM — and is completed by 9:00 AM.
Dave welcomes anyone who wants to come watch the shearing; you can even go into the shed where the shearing takes place. Photos and video are permitted; kids tend to enjoy the spectacle; do not stand in front of the alpaca because they spit when they become excited. Please park as far as you can off the side of the road — don’t go into the ditch.
A couple of years ago, the shearers changed the date at the last minute and we were not informed of the change. We will stay in touch with Dave and inform everyone if there is a change in date or time.
As established by Code of Virginia 55.1-1816 C, the PBE POA Board of Directors will convene in executive session to discuss a matter as described in Code of Virginia 55.1-1816 C (i) and (iii). The meeting agenda (below) has been modified to include the executive session.
Board meetings except for executive sessions are open to all property owners. Please let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend, either in person or on ZOOM.
The new chart shows tides at Sunnybank on the Little Wicomico River and several other local places as well as weather and fishing information. Here is a link to the chart; we will put the link on our Weather & Tides page also.
