MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - May 2015
This marks my twelfth year as your Board President.
Together we have witnessed Knoch Knolls remain on a positive path in spite of
many challenges. On the positive side, a new nature center, expanded frisbee
golf course, canoe launch, expanded hiking and bike trails, and a new 95th
Street bridge have been or are nearing completion.
On the negative side, we have had to divert
resources to removing a number of large trees in common areas and had to
replace an underperforming maintenance contractor.
Moving forward, I wish to tell you about three
events for your family. First, a few months back, I urged residents to vote to
bring an act to Knoch Knoll's Park in the Naperville Park District’s"Concerts in Your Park" series. You answered the call and Knoch
Knolls was one of a handful of parks to be awarded a free, family-friendly
concert. It will take place on July 26, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The audience is
encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a Sunday evening of
musical entertainment near the beautiful nature center.
What else is going on? Within our own boundries,
we are planning two family-oriented events. First, we are once again planning
our annual July 4th Parade. Invited guests include the Mayor and the Naperville
City Council, including Knoch Knoll's own John Krummen, the Naperville Fire
Department Drum and Bagpipe honor guard, veterans of our Armed Forces, local
scouts and one or more special surprise guests. The parade kicks off from
SpringBrook School. We will have a great reception at the end with drinks,
music refreshments and bouncy houses. Feel free to invite family and friends.
Second, we are planning a Summer Rock and Roll
Block Party, similar to last year's "Knochstoch." It will likely take
place August 29th and is a cross between Ravinia and Woodstock with great food,
drinks, raffles and two or three bands in the retention area on Knoch Knolls
Road (near the Seiler entrance). We welcome any business donations or volunteers
for either of our events.
In closing, have a great spring and summer. Check
our Website www.knochknolls.org and I encourage you to join more than 400 households who
receive email alerts by contacting Jerilynn Bayer-Fermier via email@example.com. Thank
you for your attention, and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you
have any comments.
President, Knoch Knolls HOA
