Updates from the Social Committee

***  We Need Your Input  ***


I wanted to send out an update on what’s going on in the Social Committee.  Hopefully you have received an electronic copy of the flyer for the latest event.  We will be having a Chili Cook-Off and Bingo Night at the clubhouse on Saturday, October 18 at 5:00.  I have attached the flyer for your convenience.

Thank you to those of you that filled out the survey.  If you haven’t had a chance to fill it out, please feel free to do so.  I’ve attached a copy of the pdf file.  I also have some paper copies if anyone in interested in filling one out.  The surveys are a huge help in knowing what to offer in terms of social events.  The Social Committee just wants to offer what you are willing to attend.  In terms of events, the Outdoor Movie Night seems to interest the most residents.  Hopefully in November we will be able to provide this event.  We will look into the other events as possible ideas for the future.

The Social Committee is looking to move forward on some of the groups we are looking to offer.  As of right now, the only group that currently meets is book club.  Anyone is always more than welcome to join.  Please contact Judi Engbers for more information.

The first group we are trying to set up is for yoga.  Jen Wagner has agreed to teach these classes up at the clubhouse.  They will be once a week, $5 per class, and last an hour to an hour and a half.  The classes will be around six to eight people and will be either Monday evenings around 7:30 or Wednesday mornings around 9:30.  This is a first come, first serve basis.  We already have a few people signed up for both classes.  Please let Jen know as soon as possible if you are interested.  Jen’s email address is jenniferwagner28@yahoo.com.

Another one of our residents, Pam Kuhno, has graciously offered to organize a Supper Club.  According to Pam, it’s an evening for couples (or other variations can be formed based on the composition of the group) in which the hosting duties rotate.  The host would set up the theme and cook the main dish.  Other attendees split up starters, salads, sides, and dessert.  Everyone brings a beverage of choice and copies of recipes.  Please let Pam know if you’re interested.  Pam’s email address is pamelakuhno@gmail.com.

Two of our residents brought up the fact that a lot of our neighbors work from home.  They are interested in maybe getting together for lunch or coffee.  If you work from home and would like to get out of the house for lunch, please let me know and I’ll pass your information on.

Other ideas on the survey included the following:

Cooking Club – 3 interested                       Wine Tasting – 3 interested

Sports – golf – 2 interested                         Poker – 2 interested

Babysitting Co-op – 1 interested                 Bunco – no one

Before forming any of these groups, the committee would like to know that there are residents that would attend.  PLEASE let me know if you’re interested in any of these potential groups.

Thanks so much for your help.

Road Update – DOT Punch List

It’s been a while since our last HOA meetingroadSigns-Goodluck in which the status of the Rivers Edge roads was presented. There has been some progress made since that meeting and the HOA board and road committee would like to give a current status of where we are regarding the roads.

The HOA board did get a nice letter in the mail on 9/17 and upon opening it, the DOT punch list showed itself. We reviewed the punch list individually and several of us met Steve Winstead (DOT) on the morning of 9/24 to get several questions answered and to ensure the punch list was complete. We have attached the original punch list below that residents can reference. We will be reviewing the items in the punch list at our next road meeting.

We’ve also been contacting several paving companies to request up to date quotes (utilizing the DOT punch list) for repairing the front entrance, as well as quotes for repairing the entire neighborhood for budgetary purposes. Once the quotes are received, the HOA board will call for another road update meeting to present the latest information. Thanks.

Social Committee Survey

logo-social-committeeGreetings Rivers Edge Residents,


I wanted to introduce myself and communicate what is going on with the Social Committee.  My name is Emily Paulson and our family has been living in Rivers Edge since February 2011.  We initially decided to purchase here because the house fit our growing family and the location was far enough to have a country feel while still close to Raleigh.  However, our family has found that the best thing Rivers Edge has to offer is an abundance of friendly neighbors.  For that reason, when the social chair position became vacant, I volunteered for the position.


As of right now, the Social Committee has one event on the calendar.  An End of Summer Cookout at the clubhouse / pool set for September 6 at 4:00.  Our committee would like to add a few more events and in order to offer what the residents are interested in I have worked on creating a survey.   The Social Committee is here to serve the neighborhood – any and all input is definitely encouraged.  This spreadsheet may appear at first to be overwhelming, but in order to get all the information at once I included everything I could possibly think of.  Please take a few minutes to print it out, look it over, and indicate anything you are interested in participating in.  The committee has no desire to offer something no one wants to attend, but we definitely want to offer anything you would like.


When you open this spreadsheet, it includes the following tabs –

1)      Cover – basic contact information

2)      Events – possible upcoming events

3)      Groups – includes either current groups or possibilities for the future

4)      Workshops – possible workshops / classes for the future

5)      Resources – lists any items you might have to share in order to reduce costs

6)      Recommendations – spread the word about local, honest companies or tell about your own

7)      Misc – includes babysitting, petsitting, willing to help the committee, and space for comments

The committee looks forward to seeing your responses.  Please bring your survey to the upcoming cookout or drop it in my mailbox.


Thanks in advance!

RE Website Comments


        For those of you that have commented on one of the posts on the Rivers Edge website that may have not received a quick response, we discovered recently that the notification portion of the comment section was not working, so the HOA board was not getting notified when a new comment is posted. This has been fixed.

        It will also be up to the HOA board / author of the post how they respond to each comment, if a response is warranted, so you may not always see a reply on the comments section. Thanks.

A Message from the Neighborhood Watch

imagesGood morning RE home owners.

I have been contacted by a few of you concerning strange vehicles in our subdivision at some of the strangest hours.

One neighbor has reported a loud sounding Bronco style vehicle in our subdivision around 4:40 AM. Another person has reported seeing a white and blue pickup truck cruising our neighborhood at around 5:00 AM.

Please be aware of any strange vehicles and try to report it to either myself or the Franklin county sheriff as soon as possible. Please try your best (without putting yourself in danger) to get a license plate number. I can have the sheriff’s department run the tag number and then we can compare that to people who may be working in the subdivision at a construction site.

It has also been reported that some of our street lights at not working properly. Please email me with your home address if you have a RE streetlight not working properly. I want to turn in a list by the end of the week to be looked at.

If you have any other concerns regarding the neighborhood watch in the RE subdivision please let me know.
