New Board member, List of Commitees

Thank you to all the residents that expressed an interest in joining the POP board. We had a very positive response with 4 applications. All applicants were well qualified and any one of them would have be a great addition.  One did have to be selected and the new board member will be Karen Dusevitch 24 Delano Ave.

We truly hope to keep the other applicants Nancy Pasquerella, Rob Zierten, Angela Guarino Sawaya and the full community involved.  Please remember joining the POP committees does not require a seat on the board, an interest in our beach community is all that is needed.  We hope we can attract and use all the many talents of our neighbors to improve the Pines.
