Hello Friends and Neighbors;

     The Master Board meeting was called to order at 10:01 with all 14 Board Members present.

     President Bill Durkee said that everything in Cinnamon Cove was going very well.

     The Treasurer's report showed that expenses were down due to COVID-19 and that we will end the year in the black.

      The Recreation and Social Director reported that Wednesday the 18th is Food truck Wednesday with The Cinnamon Crows performing in the parking lot at the clubhouse 5:30 to 7:30. Masks are required as well as social distancing, it is asked that as many as possible walk or bring golf carts in order to save what parking spaces are left for those who truly need them. Bring your own chair and a tip jar will be available for tips to the Cinnamon Crows. Friday at 2:00 is the ice cream social, masks required and $1. Food donations will be accepted next Monday 23rd from 1 to 3 in front of the clubhouse.

     Maintenance, Michael reported that the new A/C unit for the clubhouse has been installed and that there was an electrical issue in the fitness room which has been addressed. The issue with the new transponders not working at the back gate has also been remedied and that the plexiglass transponders are for owners with rental cars. Michael has also started looking at the work list from the building and grounds committee.

     Committee reports
      1.  Finance Committee reported that they have reduced the recommended Master Board fee in the 2021 budget to $84 per unit per month; this is a reduction of $0.99 per unit, partially due to this year's surplus and putting $39,960.00 from budget 2020 surplus into the updated 2021 budget. 

 2. The Amenities Committee has now opened the fitness center from 6 am to 4 pm.

 3.  Building and Grounds Committee recommended a November worksheet addressing the Osprey nest, permission to change the color scheme of the welcome center to a pale blue or green. (color has not been selected as of yet) They would like to purchase and have installed upper cabinets in the A/B room cost to be approximately $1650. Recommended removing the cabinets in the fitness room before the new floor is installed, giving it a little more room and the items stored there can be placed in the new cabinets in the A/B room. Then the room should be painted and cost approximately $100. Recommended new curtains in the upstairs library area cost $225. Recommended purchasing a large closed cupboard to store the games and puzzles cost $400. The November worksheet was approved by the Board minus the Osprey nest 14 to 0.

The communications committee reported that the new owner section of the website is complete at http://www.cinnamoncove.com this to give new owners in Cinnamon Cove information about, in and around Cinnamon Cove. The committee is also working on an information packet for new owners to be presented to the Board.
