From the President –

Hello Linwood,

Here we are, with summer winding down, and fall around the corner! The year sure has flown by.

I am extremely happy to report that our Linwood Community Picnic was a resounding success. Your Council worked hard on the event, and we were pleased with our first attempt at this event.

There was plenty of food and refreshments to go around to all those who showed up. We saw lots of new faces and had the pleasure of meeting and talking to some Linwood residents we have not previously met. The gorgeous August afternoon was another bonus which added to the success of the event. For those who were not able to attend the picnic, we plan on hav-ing it again in 2013, so make your plans to join us next year. We are now in the election cycle.

We not only have the “big” elections coming up in November, but at our November 27th meeting of the council, we will also have our Community Coun-cil elections.

Our By-Laws direct the Board of Trustees to present a slate of candidates for officers and trustees to the general membership at the October meeting. Then at the November meeting, the mem-bership can add to the slate of the candidates, after which the elections are held.

The winners then serve from January through December of the following year. The only stipulation is that those nominated for the offices of the President and Vice President have had to sit on the Board of Trustees for a minimum of 6 months to be eligible for nomination.

Voting is a right and a duty for all of us. It is the way we get a voice in running this great country of ours. I urge all of you to take advantage of your right to vote, not only in the “big” elec-tions, but also in the election of your community representatives!


Tom Salamon President,

Linwood Community Council
