BBQ Picnic – Saturday, Sept. 6th

Dear Ridgewood Residents,

Following the community yard sale from 8am-12pm, please join your neighbors for a BBQ picnic on Saturday, Sept. 6th!

The Ridgewood HOA will be catering the food and non-alcoholic drinks.  Residents need only bring their appetites and their own beer, wine, etc.

We’ll get started at 5pm and the food will arrive shortly thereafter.  First come, first serve!

Please RSVP with the expected number of attendees from your household.  Here’s the Evite link:


Menu will include BBQ chicken, pork and beef sandwiches along with sides of baked beans, corn, potato salad and watermelon.

Please also be aware that the HOA is budgeting for Ridgewood residents and NOT outside guests, so we ask you to respectfully keep those to a minimum.

Woodpecker hole on your chimney?

In our annual meeting yesterday (thanks to those that attended!), one item that came up was the woodpecker/chimney nuisance.  Several homes have woodpeckers that are blasting away at holes, usually on chimneys.  Turns out that the woodpeckers are simply after the carpenter insects – bumblebees or wasps – that originally created the hole.  One resident recommended PMSI (Pest Management Services Inc) who will get rid of the insects and patch the hole.
