Presidents Message July 2020

21 Jul

Hello IOP Residents,
I wanted to start off by saying that I hope everyone is healthy and safe. Practice cleanliness and social
distancing and adhere to all Local, State and CDC recommended precautions and guidelines. We will be back
to normal as soon as safely possible.
July 4th went off with a BANG. I’d like to thank everyone for their donations for making it the biggest
fireworks show yet and those that help me during prep and setup. Station 77 did another great job escorting,
and the parade was well attended. Lastly, thanks to the few individuals that helped me clean the park the
week before the July 4th event.
We will be doing a Labor Day event this year (9/7 starting 5-9pm). IOP members will need to RSVP for the
event for a prepared meal ( Currently the event will be open to members only
but may open to members and guests if COVID conditions improve. There will be an online auction with all
proceeds going back into the IOP Park. More details will be provided in next month’s newsletter and on the
IOP Facebook page. Volunteers will be needed to prepare/serve food and clean up. If you are interested,
please let Terry ( know.
There are two additional things to mention. First is that there is an abundance of fawns running around in
the neighborhood. Please use caution when driving or walking as they scare easily. Also, their mothers are in
protective mode, so give them space while out for a walk. Secondly, school will be starting soon and there
will be kids at the bus stops before and after school. Please drive alert and do not speed on the neighborhood streets.
Here’s a list of events that are coming up:
• We are looking for two additional board members. If you are an
active IOP member and are able to attend the board meetings
(First Tuesday of every month 7pm@IOP Park) let me know
• IOP has a fishing club. We meet on the first Sunday of each
month. If you’d like to join or want more details, contact Matt
Rock at for more details.
• Halloween is only a couple months away and we are looking for
someone to run the event. If you are interested, contact me
( or feel free to attend our next board
meeting (8/4 @ 7pm).
