The Maintenance Committee maintains the clubhouse and other amenities  such as the boardwalk and dock.  They also perform tasks such as fixing damaged street signs, installing duck deterrent spikes, and filling walking path sink holes.  When something  is beyond our capabilities, we make recommendations to the Executive Board.  
                       
They also offer to help unit owners who need assistance with small jobs that they are unable
 to perform themselves such as replacing smoke detector batteries or changing light bulbs.


Time commitment is minimal and formal meetings are infrequent.   Anyone is welcome to join. No special skills are required.  Our motto is “many hands make the work fast and fun”.
