The Homeowners Association publishes a directory of homeowners
once each year. The directory is compiled from information collected
by the Hospitality Committee. New residents should contact a Hospitality
Committee member to have their family data collected. This information
will be published in the Stonebridge Newsletter and it is then forwarded to
the Directory Editor for inclusion in the annual directory. The directory
is divided into sections. At the end of the alphabetical listings, you will
find a list of families in street order, a list of children by birth year,
as well as lists of children in the neighborhood who are willing to provide
baby sitting, pet sitting and yard work services. There is also a list
of the neighborhood block captains.
A monthly newsletter is mailed to all property owners. The newsletter contains
information on new residents, organization information and current events as well
as the minutes from the most recent Board of Directors meeting.
