South Bay Community Association Update

by Gil Skinner, President, SBCA Board of Directors

The SBCA Board has its seventh member, Randy Edwards. He was appointed in August to fill the remaining open seat on the Board. If you remember, at the annual meeting in July we had seven write-in candidates for the last open seat with one vote each. Five of the seven write-in candidates withdrew from consideration. We selected one of the remaining two by lot to fill the position, but that person resigned due to time commitments. We then appointed the last write-in candidate, Randy, in August to fill that seat on the Board. Randy is a fine addition to the Board and brings many notable skills and experiences. He is a soon-to-be retired Captain of the Seattle Fire Department, and we welcome him to the Board.

As we near the end of our fiscal year there is often a tendency to reflect on what a difficult year it was— Covid, lockdowns, masks, pain, etc. I choose instead to focus on some accomplish- ments and successes. A few examples are below.

How time flies. I have heard that statement since I was a youngster. Now I know what it means! How did we get to June when only yesterday it was March Madness time?

New Meeting Room Policy

A rare working agreement between the Ludlow Maintenance Commission (AKA the North Bay) and the South Bay Community Association was unveiled in February, allowing officially designated Community Organizations free access to meeting rooms at both Club houses. That access includes both the smaller meeting rooms and the larger Auditorium/Bayview rooms. Scheduling will be done on a 50/50 basis, so each Club hosts the same number of meetings each month.

Spring is springing. The daffodils, rhododendrons, prim- roses, crocuses and forsythia are all blooming. Let’s hope our “wintry mix” forecast will finally be shelved for another year. Big shout out to all who are able to plant these great harbingers of spring. As I drive around South Bay these early bloomers always bring a smile and hope for new beginning.
