Club News

The first Gathering of the year will be on Saturday, July 18 at 5:30 pm, Hoskins Park.  Please see details on the Events page!  Meet all the new neighbors!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

******The annual Steak and Lobster Dinner WILL NOT be taking place on Saturday, July 25th- we feel it is not safe to have such a large gathering this summer.  BUT…there will be a family campout in Stevens Park the weekend of July 24-25.  See the events page for details!!

We also are planning on a decorated golf cart and bike parade- keeping safe distances, of course!  (can’t you just see the steak and lobster themed golf carts now???). We even have an idea for a very collectible tee shirt this year.  We’ll keep you posted as we get closer!******

The kids Sailing and Tennis Camp will not be taking place this year- but we will try to find some activities to replace it with.  Stay tuned!

Please see the Events page and Events Calendar page for event updates and listings.  We hope we will be able to hold all of the events we planned for this year!

 

We recently received the devastating news that former longtime Point resident Bob Griffin passed away.  Bob and Nancy had moved to South Carolina a couple of years ago after retirement and sadly Bob fell ill shortly after.  He was a past president of the Oswegatchie Hill Club and very active in all club activities, especially caring for the club beach.  He will be missed and our thoughts are with Nancy and family at this time.

Thanks to the Easter Bunny for making a golf cart visit to Saunders Point and bringing candy to kids waiting Easter baskets!  The visit was hilarious as the Bunny danced its way to some houses, delighting kids and adults alike.  One house in particular may or may not have been playing ‘Rappers Delight’, with the kids dancing along with the bunny (at a safe distance, of course!). 

Thanks for making a fun morning for everyone in the hood!  It was so needed and much appreciated!  

SPRING WORK PARTIES
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to clean up the parks and open spaces this spring!  The neighborhood looks great and if social distancing and the weather ever cooperate, we can all enjoy these spaces together very soon.
We will be posting a tentative 2020 social events calendar shortly so your summer planning can start- stay tuned and stay healthy!!
*****The OHC Spring Fling Dinner has been cancelled due to public safety concerns at this time.  If we are able to reschedule we will let you know.  We had hoped to see everyone after the long winter hibernation, but we feel this is in the best interest of all.  Go for a hike or grab a jigsaw puzzle, hunker down and stay safe, everyone!****

 

Calling all volunteers!!!!  If you would like to lend a hand with any of the OHC events or committees we would love to have you!  We have all kinds of jobs we need help with- from family & kids events to the social committee, planning the gatherings and dinners.  We always need volunteers for clean-up parties in the spring and summer and to help the membership committee.  If you have some time to help out, please contact Alda Debboli at debboli@yahoo.com.

Please remember that the tennis courts are for club members use only, and only for tennis!  The clay courts are expensive to maintain and dogs, kids and non-court shoes can damage the courts.  Please be respectful….we hate to nag!

REMINDERS

Tennis Courts
Proper tennis shoes are required to preserve the clay courts! This means flat soles, no ridges, and no cross-trainers. Generally, basketball shoes are acceptable and Keds are okay.

Message to the Kids
Several neighborhood elders were looking for help with raking leaves and shoveling snow over during the past fall/winter seasons. OHC would like to make available a list of young people willing to help. This is not necessarily a volunteer mission; you will likely be compensated for your efforts.

Club Property Reminders
No aero soft gun pellets allowed in the fields
No All-terrain vehicles allowed on Club property
Please, pick up after your dog(s)
Drive slowly. There are many children about!

The Golf Course and Tennis Courts and facilities are maintained by the Club and for Member use – don’t be shy about commenting on other uses and any abuse or letting strangers know the use rules.

Pets

Please control and pick up after your dog and ask others to do the same for the club and public health and safety.  Waste bag stations have been put up around the neighborhood for your use.  Dogs must be kept on a leash in public spaces.

Connecticut Leash and Dog Bite Law (2004-R-0308) applies at Saunders Point.

PLEASE OBSERVE THE SPEED LIMITS!

THERE IS A $100. TOWN FINE FOR PARKING ON OR BLOCKING THE FIRE DOCKS
