Message from the Manager 

Hello Radburn Residents –

By now, you should have received our call for candidates for the upcoming election. We hope that you are as enthusiastic as the current board is to get involved with The Radburn Association.

Should there be a large turn out to run for the board (there will be 5 seats open) - of course not all will be voted in.  Please keep your eyes open for other ways to get involved with The Radburn Association. We do expect to have the open candidates night on November 4. We look forward to having you vote in the upcoming election, expected to take place at the early December Members Meeting.

We expect to present the 2019 Budget at the November 19th meeting.  Of course we will mail the budget prior to that date. 

We love to hear from the homeowners who want to support all that we do, to keep this a thriving community. Always open to hear new thoughts!

Stop by and say hello – best regards,   Janet Lepson-Sedaka

Dear Neighbors:

As you may be aware, this past Friday, I tendered my resignation as Manager of The Radburn Association.  For the past eleven years, it was an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve this very special and unique community.  I have also been honored to have served with so many of our volunteers and employees, who have always done their best to make sure that all of our residents continue to enjoy what makes this community the very special place that it has always been.  In parting, I want to thank all of you who have contributed and supported the work that we have done.

With best wishes and kind regards,

David F. Bostock

BEST WISHES TO VALORIE MAYOFF 

Radburn has been extremely fortunate to have had the meticulous expertise and oversight of Valorie Mayoff regarding all things relating to finances, billing, collections and payroll for the past three years.  Last week, Valorie was contacted and offered a position in her previous field:  contract negotiation in the aerospace industry.  As we liked to joke:  It IS rocket science!  Continued success in your exciting new adventure.  We’ll miss you !

PICKLEBALL HITS RADBURN

The game of Pickleball is now available to our residents (18 and over).  A temporary court has been set up on the tennis court closest to the tracks. There is a portable net that can be moved into place and the paddles and balls are available at the Grange. If you plan on playing over the weekend, make sure you let the office know so you can pick them up on Friday.  Just as when playing tennis, a key is needed to obtain entry onto the court so don't forget to get one at the Grange for a $2.00 fee. We do have another net we can set up depending on interest. For more information about the game checkout the following website: https://www.usapa.org.  We are hoping to move the court indoors to the gym for the winter to continue the fun. So get out there and see what the fastest growing sport in America is all about and have fun!

HEDGES ALONG PARK PATHS & PROPERTY MAINTENANCE

Please inspect your property and correct any potentially dangerous or unsightly condition by cutting back any shrubbery or groundcover encroaching on the public footways from your property.   We have received specific complaints from the borough Property Maintenance Office regarding height of grass for the homes adjacent to the paths for Bolton and Beekman Place. 

OH, DEER …

A resident called to ask what to do if you come upon a deer in the park or in your yard.  According to Google, deer are likely to be more afraid of you than you are of them.  They are generally un-aggressive, except when protecting their young.  Loud noise - banging a garbage can lid or shouting will usually scare them off.  If you just walk away they won’t follow.  If you want to keep deer out of your yard, bar soap is a natural deer repellant, so hang a bar from a tree or spread soap flakes around your garden.  Deer are afraid of dogs, too.

SAVE THE DATES!!!!!  GET READY FOR A SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN!!!!!

JUST ADD WATER …

The Radburn Swim Team had wonderful season this summer! We are ecstatic to report that we had 126 swimmers on the team — 50 of those swimmers being under the age of 9!  We had two new teams join our league this swimmer and had some additional swim meets added to our schedule, which was very exciting! We ended the season with a 3-2 record and came in 5th place at the league championships.  We also recognized August Abernathy as the recipient of the Lake League Senior Swimmer Award, which we have not given out to our team in over a decade! We are very sad to have two of our 15/17 boys, August Abernathy and Ben Cameron, aging out of the swim team this year, but wish them the best in everything they do and hope they will visit us at swim team next year!

Our excellent 8&under swimmers had an amazing season this year. Many of these swimmers were first time members of the swim team and all were able to complete a full lap of freestyle at our final home meet! The 8&unders worked hard at practice each day, and their hard work definitely paid off. The 8&under swimmers include: Julian Amin, Jonathan Bas, Willow Bolla, Lucy Bontekoe, Sam Bontekoe, Max Carter, John Clark, Tommy Clark, Dori Cohen, Lennox Cohen, Madeline Cohen, Lena Danilewicz, Giuliana DiGeronimo, Chris Ferrante, Isabella Frola, Daniella Graff, James Graff, Hannah Hakim, Mili Hauben, Katelyn Hernandez, Madeline Malin, Hannah McConnell, Alicia McLean, Brody Miles, Cash Miles, Hunter Miles, Isabella Morales-Moran, Zoe Narkiewicz, Max Nozderko, Luca Reganato, Dylan Rosenberg, Jay Rudnick, Sajid Saleh, Kaya Schrader, Mia Shalom, George Siabanis, Theo Siabanis, Nathaniel Sommar, Cole Stevens, Sophie Tregubenko, Massimo Vachino, Kaya Vehrkens, Cameron Weidhorn, Asher Weinraub, Avi Weinraub, Paul Wilson, and Zach Wiznitzer.

The 9/10 age group had a magnificent season and contributed to a huge portion of the points scored at each meet. They worked wonderfully together and were excellent teammates to the other swimmers. They are a competitive group and won a ton of races this summer! The 9/10 swimmers include: Chloe Alania, Adrian Amatuzzi, Vincent Amatuzzi, Chase Amin, Adam Bajramovic, Will Bontekoe, Kyle Brathwaite, Ella Chamberlain, Jackie Chevier, Ayelet Cohen, Sydney Cohen, Vincent Danilewicz, Natalie Davis, Devon Denio, Paloma DiGeronimo, Nicholas Ferrante, Yarden Hauben, Antonio Ingrati, Unzile Koksal, Zeynep Koksal, Hanna Kraminkima, Isabel Malin, Emersyn Montalvo, Jacoby Narkiewicz, Miller Ochs, Dylan Pollock, Maddy Romanik, Julie Rosenberg, Maya Rudnick. Zarah Shroff, Alessandra Sommar, Izzy Stein, Ben Suehr, Juliet Wilson, and Preston Zhong.

The 11/12 age group had a very strong and very successful season. These swimmers really stepped up to the plate as this was the first summer, for many of them, where they had to swim two laps in a swim meet instead of one. They came to morning practice each day and worked extremely hard, and it most definitely paid off! The 11/12 swimmers include: Mick Abernathy, Maryann Bahrjczuk, Liam bas, Alec Cameron, Jack Chamberlain, Daniel Cohen, Sophie Cortese, Isabella Cortese, Mackenzie Davis, Riley Denio, Charlotte Farley, Michael Ferrante, Gilad Kogan, Jared Lopez, Arkadiy Martsev, Gigi Ochs, Daniel Pascual, Kenan Sengul, Cyrus Shroff, Aidan Soukas, and CJ Soukas.

Our 13/14 age group is filled with many talented swimmers. These swimmers were up for any challenge and many helped our team out by swimming up in the 15/17 age group. This group works really hard and loves to have fun in both practice and the swim meets. These swimmers never disappoint in a race and work together as a team to have jaw-dropping relays each meet! The 13/14 age group includes: Ariel Alania, Daniel Bahrjczuk, Ronen Bas, Matthew Cameron, Hunter Coates, Gilad Cohen, Sean Drahouzal, Luke Farley, Ella Ferat, Elaine Grossman, Maya Guennouni, Ella Lebet, Andres Lopez, Laeyah Montalvo, Nico O’Neill, Isabella Pollock, Emma Radice, Romi Shalom, and Andy Weisberger.

The 15/17 age group may be our smallest group, but they definitely have no problem leading The Radburn Swim Team both in and out of the pool. These swimmers are a pleasure to coach and are great role models for our younger swimmers. They are capable of swimming the most grueling events at our swim meets, and do so with good spirits knowing they are really helping our team out! The 15/17 swimmers include: August Abernathy, Ben Cameron, and Ziv Shalom.

Thank you to everyone for your support of The Radburn Swim Team this summer! We had a blast watching the swimmers grow both in and out of the pool and look forward to another successful summer of swimming next year! – Coach Susan.

When one of McGregor's relatives suddenly moves in, he's less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner hatches scheme after scheme to get rid of Peter -- a resourceful rabbit who proves to be a worthy and wily opponent.  In the event of rain, the movie will be rescheduled for Sunday, August 5th

FAMILY DAY 2018 is in the Books!

Thank you to all who came out and joined us for Family Day weekend 2018!!!!  We hope you had a blast and enjoyed the weekend events.  As you know, most of putting Family Day weekend together is possible through the generosity of volunteers.  The RCA and its Family Day Committee spend the year planning the weekend, including getting vendors lined up, working with our budget, creating/purchasing merchandise, having lots of planning meetings, purchasing food, getting donations, arranging the community dinner, recruiting volunteers, making sure the park is clean after the event, etc.  This year’s Family Day Committee consisted of the RCA Executive Board (Jennifer Gibli, Janie Alania, Alba Morales Jimenez and Evan Bolla), as well as Michelle Weinraub (vendor coordinator) and Shana Cohen/Leya Hakim (Saturday night dinner coordinators).  Although every volunteer is critical to our success, a huge thank you is in order for the Family Day Committee for all of their time and effort throughout the year to make the weekend happen.  A very special note of thanks to Janie Alania, VP of the RCA, who is our outstanding Family Day Project Manager and made sure absolutely everything fell into place the way it was intended!

A very special thank you to George Pagonis, Liam Nolan and Riley Horton (Runners) for being there on Friday and Saturday to make sure we had extra hands to set up, run errands and have everything in order.  You were all amazing and such great assets to the team helping us make it all come together!
