Nominations Needed for 3 HOA Board Positions

Whitaker Downs HOA members will vote to fill three seats on the board of directors at the HOA's annual meeting Tuesday, November 29.

As of Oct. 25, only three candidates have been nominated for the two-year terms, according to Susan Whitfield, chairman of the Nominations and Elections Committee. They are Dan Alexander (265 Reece Drive), Jill Cunningham (185 Huntington Trail), and Bryan Bullock (166 Reece Drive).

Nominations are open to all HOA members whose properties are in good standing. If you would like to serve on the board of directors or nominate someone else for the post, you must contact a member of the committee before 5 p.m. Nov. 3 to have the candidate’s name printed on the proxy ballots. Nominations may also be made from the floor at the annual meeting.

Election and Nominations Committee members are Susan Whitfield, Michael Notheis, and  Bob Penland. You may also contact current members of the board: Beth Thackery, Mark Thornton, Larry Reinhardt, or Grover Demeter.

Beth Thackery Elected Board President

Beth Thackery was elected president of the Whitaker Downs Homeowners Association board of directors at the board's regular meeting Oct. 9.

She replaces outgoing president Todd DeBella, who resigned his position due to his impending relocation to Gwinnett County.

An 11-year resident of Whitaker Downs, Thackery was elected to the board at the HOA's annual meeting last December. She currently serves as the board liaison to the Pool Committee and the Landscape Committee.

WD Golf Club Seeks Members

The Whitaker Downs Golf club is seeking new players to join its weekly outing, according to club chairman Larry Reinhardt.

“Enthusiasm and interest are far more important than talent.” Reinhardt said. “We have many different skill levels in the group and would love to have more neighbors participate.”

The club plays weekly, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays, at different courses in the Hoschton area. Anyone interested in joining should send an e-mail to larry.reinhardt.jr@gmail.com.
