The Board of Directors of the GPOA has called for a “Special Meeting” for all members to participate on the discussion and acceptance of the proposed By-Laws changes.
Saturday, August 25, 2018
Craven County Community College, 800 College Court, New Bern
The Purposes of the Special Meeting are to:
- Review and act on changes to our current By-Laws, as proposed by the By-Laws Committee, accepted by the GPOA Board, and reviewed by our new Registered Agent, Arey W. Grady, III, Esq., of Sumrell Sugg of New Bern. For your information, our previous Registered Agent, B. Hunt Baxter, Jr., has passed away.
- Other business to be discussed will be an update on current projects, and to receive feedback from members
Under the Greenbrier WEB Site Home menu item you will find a selection that contains links to all the documents provided to explain the By-Laws changes in preparation for the meeting.
If you have difficulty downloading any of these items, all documents will be available at the Emerald Clubhouse, or can be obtained through the Board Secretary Dan Cashman email@example.com, or by phoning him at 585-414-7730.
We hope that the location (Orringer Auditorium) will be convenient to you: there is ample and very comfortable seating, an excellent public address system, and convenient parking.
We also hope that the time will be convenient to you: Saturday allows working members to attend; and the afternoon time slot allows for folks to play golf, etc., before attending, and still have time to attend any evening events.
In closing, we thank each of you for your membership and your anticipated attention to the proposed changes. And we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, August 25, at 3:00 PM.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
Greenbrier Property Owners’ Association, Inc.
Vice President and Director of Communications

New Volunteer Coordinator Wanted
Greenbrier residents, in case you did not see my “ad” in the last two issues of our Greenbrier Gazette, I want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to consider taking over the Volunteer position of Loan Closet Coordinator for Greenbrier.
For the past 10 years I have been coordinating the distribution and acquirement of both medical equipment and children’s items for our community via our Medical and Children’s Equipment Loan Closet.
It is now time for me to “pass the torch” on to some one (or a team of two or more).
I am happy to say that during my tenure in this volunteer position, I have been able to acquire a significant inventory (I inherited from my predecessor who moved to Georgia only a limited number of items). Through the generosity of so many of you over the years, we can now service multiple people wanting/needing the same items at the same time.
VOLUNTEER POSTION REQUIREMENTS:
- A willingness to meet neighbors and a kind heart
- Storage Space Needed: ½ of a 2-car insulated garage
- Equipment Needed: voice mail–either on a land line or a cell phone
HOW THE LOAN CLOSET WORKS:
Someone calls with a request, and after a simple recording form is completed, they either pick up the item(s) or it/they are delivered. (When time to return these items, the borrower calls to set up a day/time to return them).
BY THE END OF MARCH 2017
A volunteer position someone can do from home. No special training is required nor is any certification needed.
HOW TO APPLY:
IF NO ONE STEPS UP TO TAKE THIS MUCH-NEEDED POSITION IN OUR COMMUNITY, THE LOAN CLOSET WILL NO LONGER EXIST (and all equipment will be donated to several low-income-oriented nursing homes).
Thank you for your time in considering accepting this position.
