NOVEMBER 2008

 

On October 25th, the clubhouse was invaded by ghouls, zombies, a headless clown, skeletons and many other creepy creatures. Thanks to Virginia and Carl Sullivan, the Oakwood Glen Halloween haunted house was a success!!  Among those touring the haunted house were a devil, a ladybug, an escaped convict, and a lion. Be sure to check out the pictures on the members only section of the website.

 

Hiking Club

A ladies Hiking Club is being organized for our neighborhood and friends. We plan to hike on the first Saturday of the Month at various hiking locations around the DFW area. We will meet at the OWG clubhouse at 8:00am.  Different trails/dates will be at different hiking abilities. Email Denise Hall denise_hall@att.net or Dalynn Montgomery dalynn.montgomery@verizon.net for more information.

 

Clubhouse D�cor

After months of bare walls, the clubhouse is now decorated. We would like to thank Kim and Sebron Hood for volunteering their time in making the clubhouse have a more comfortable atmosphere.

 

Yard of the Month

Robert and Pam Mabry are the winners of the Calloway�s sponsored Yard of the Month contest. Check out the Mabry�s house on the Yard of the Month page on the website.

 

Cropping at the Clubhouse

Save the 1st and 3rd Wednesday for crafting at the clubhouse. Bring your own project and join your neighbors at the clubhouse from 9:30 to 1:30 for some crafting and socializing. We have received requests for a weekend craft day. Saturday November 15th is reserved just for that!  Email Lori Ruml at ruml@verizon.net for more information.

 

Tennis Courts Etiquette

Our lower tennis courts lately are being used by non-members. The last few weekends members of OWG have had to wait for a court, only to find that they are in use by people not in our HOA. Remember, you pay dues to use the amenities.  If you know of people using the courts that are not in our HOA, please let them know that Oakwood Glen is a private facility and only members are allowed. Guests are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a member.

 

Directories

The Oakwood Glen directories have all now been distributed. If you have not received one, please check with your block captain or Phyllis Simanek psimanek@verizon.net.  The directory is to be used only for private use of OWG homeowners. Please do not use the directory for solicitation purposes. If you notice a mistake, please contact Phyllis so we can make a correction. Virginia Sullivan and Diane McCrudden put in many long hours gathering information to make this directory the best we have ever had. A special thanks to them for their hard work.

 

Safety

With the cooler weather now upon us, we all need to be reminded of a few safety precautions. The article below was brought to our attention as a good reminder:

 

The use of space heaters in offices is quite common in the winter.  Even in warmer climates, winter mornings can bring a chill.  And while these seemingly harmless devices may be an efficient way to heat a cold or drafty space, they can pose certain safety hazards when used incorrectly. Even though a space heater does not have an open flame, the heating elements of some are hot enough to cause nearby combustibles to ignite.  Additionally, fires can be caused by improper use, and burns by contact with the heating element or a hot surface.

Therefore, taking appropriate safety measures is vital in preventing an accident.  It is also important to review space heater policies with building management.

Space Heater Safety Precautions:

  • Choose a space heater with a guard around the heating element.
  • Carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions on how far the heater should be placed from other objects.
  • Use a heater certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory.
  • Buy a heater that is the correct size for the area you want to heat.
  • Never leave an unattended heater turned on.
  • Ensure proper ventilation.
  • Never use or store flammable liquids around a space heater.
  • Never use heaters to dry clothes or equipment or thaw pipes.
  • Do not place a heater where objects could fall on it.
  • Follow the instructions and safety precautions for operation and maintenance.
  • Never use a portable heater in a bathroom or near a sink.
  • Do not run the heater's cord under carpeting or where someone could trip over it.
  • Never touch an electric heater if you are wet.
  • Never operate a defective or broken heater.
  • Install and maintain a smoke detector in the area where the heater will be used.
