Farewell to a longtime Eagle Nest friend: Pool Manager Susan Anderson resigns

Fellow residents,

As the saying goes, all good things eventually come to an end. And in our case, that means saying farewell to Susan Anderson, our longtime Pool Manager. Last month, Susan resigned her position, due to the growing demands of her full-time job, medical school studies and increasing family needs. In short, something had to give. That’s totally understandable, especially in today’s busy world.

Since she was hired in 2011, Susan has always gone above and beyond to keep our aging Pool facility operational, and she often spent many off-hour days and nights tending to our problematic pump room. She used her connections to hire a talented and reliable lifeguard staff year after year, and she ensured our facility remained open every day through the season (and well after Labor Day, when most pools traditionally close).

Although Susan never lived in Eagle Nest, she and her family were as familiar as many of our longtime neighbors. Her three daughters worked as lifeguards at the Pool, and she herself worked as an assistant swim coach at Lawrence North High School. Her work experience and connections – more than two decades of pool-related roles in two states, including stints as a high school developmental swim coach, and leader of a local diving competition team – made her an invaluable asset. She will be sorely missed.

Thank you, Susan, for all you (and your family) have done for the residents of Eagle Nest. We wish you all the best

Suffice to say, we need a new Pool Manager asap. If you're interested, please contact Board President Scott Thien at scottthien@comcast.net.

Happy Easter!

The Eagle Nest Board wishes everyone a Happy Easter, and we hope your holiday weekend is filled with family, friends and peace! Speaking of Easter, thanks go out to all those families and children who turned out for our annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 14 at the Clubhouse. Despite the cold, damp conditions, we still had a great turnout for an egg hunt and activities inside the Clubhouse (the second year in a row, so let's hope for better weather next year!). It's always fun to meet new neighbors and the next generations of Eagle Nest residents!

Thanks to Social Committee leader Alice Miley for organizing the event! As always, we welcome volunteers to help with our neighborhood social events, so if you're interested please send an email to alicemiley23@gmail.com and we'll get you plugged in.

Be sure to keep an eye on our blog calendar of events so you don't miss out on our neighborhood activities. (Click here to see the list). Happy Easter!

Easter Egg Hunt - Sunday, April 14

Calling all Eagle Nest kids or grandkids of residents!!  Eagle Nest's annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place outside of the clubhouse on Sunday, April 14, from 3- 4 p.m.  Bring your own basket to find the many eggs that will be ready to be found.  Last year's big snow made us move the egg hunt inside; we feel that won't happen again, but the memory will make us enjoy the outdoor clubhouse area even more!  See you Sunday afternoon!

ATT plans installation of fiber optic cables in parts of Eagle Nest

See this orange card? If you found one staked in your yard or in a neighbor’s, it’s a sign that AT&T is planning installation of fiber optic cables in your area soon, possibly in the next two weeks.

According to the contractor, the cables will be buried in the easements or public right-of-way areas from the street to the rear of some properties, mostly in the southern (newer) part of the neighborhood. AT&T will strive to minimize disruption to landscaping, and all affected digging areas will be restored with regrading, grass seed and straw.

Property owners should note that if you have fences, sheds or landscaping blocking access to affected areas, you may be responsible for removal and replacement in order for the utility to gain access. The ENPOA Board has no authority to prohibit installation or grant exceptions in these installation areas.

If you have questions, call the AT&T contractor at (734) 351-8930 or check AT&T’s FAQs at www.att.com/Fiber/FAQs.
