Greetings Eidelweiss Neighbors
Get your creative juices going as the Eidelweiss Property Owners Association (EPOA) announces its first Oval Bumper Sticker contest. Like the ones you see in various towns (MWV, OGT, OOB, MV, BOS) and other affinities (e.g., 26.2 marathons, 140.6 Ironman, the Mt Washington hiker), we are looking for a design that generates pride in our community and promotes friendships.
So, if you are looking for a project for your kids over the vacation, need a break from that report you need to write for work, or just see this as a chance to stretch out those old creative muscles, pull out your pen (or computer) and send in your submissions. Submit your design by June 30, 2016, see details below.
Winners will receive:
- $25 gift certificate from a local ice cream store
- Four complimentary stickers
- Recognition at the annual EPOA Summer BBQ in July
A committee of 5-7 EPOA members will review the submissions and select 1-3 winners, based on:
- Ability to generate visibility with and/or recognition of Eidelweiss Village and/or the EPOA
- Suitability for a broad, public audience
- Creativity in the design
- The inclusion of our website address of eidelweissvillage.com.
- Fit to the size and shape of the bumper sticker of 3”x5”(images and words need to be legible, so simplicity is encouraged).
- Submissions* can be rough graphic designs or sketches. If selected, we will contact you to obtain a more finished design to submit to the printer.
- Submissions can contain text, images, or a combination.
- Submissions should include our website address of eidelweissvillage.com.
- Submissions should fit into a standard 3”x5” oval (see, for example, stickercafe.com or vistaprint.com)
Please email submissions or questions to [email protected] and [email protected]
Submit your design by June 30, 2016
*By submitting your design, you agree to allow EPOA to print stickers using your design and to sell them at slightly above cost to support the community.
September 26 is our shared dinner, and the theme this year is steak. For those of you who have never been to a shared dinner you contact the coordinator, which is Bev Mattatall this month, to see what we need. You keep your slips for whatever you purchase, and that night we tally up all the expenditures and divide by the number of people to get a per person price. Some people will get money back and some will pay. The cost is usually less than $10. It’s always a great meal and lots of fun.
Please contact Bev Mattatall for more information at 781 507 1543
The Pig Roast Dinner on August 15 was great. We usually have lobster dinner in the past, but we thought we would change it out this year.
The pig was just under 100 pounds and it was smoked inside a gigantic smoker filled with coals since the morning for over 7 hours. You can see the smoke coming out of the BBQ and the smell of the pig roast permeated the whole village all day!
Then the pig was dressed in sunglasses and apple! We also had corn, potato and gravy, salad, and soup. For the non-pork eaters, we had hot dogs and hamburgers. We also served ice cream. The pork was super moist and everything was just delicious.
We were a little worried because of the pending storm, but luckily it turned out to be a nice day. People from the village came with their families and neighbors. We got to know our neighbors and meet their families a little bit, which was great.It was moist and delicious. I think people really enjoyed it based on the compliments we got and people took some of the leftovers home.
Thank you for all the volunteers who helped out with preparing the food and cleaning up afterwards.

Lots of snow in the Village this week and the beach is a winter wonderland. Please join us for some winter fun this Sunday Feb 15th at Geneva Beach. Bring your snow shoes or cross country skis or just come and enjoy a great winter day in the village.
We plan to have a campfire and some nice hot chocolate and goodies. Fun starts around 1:30 pm. Hope to see you there!
A group of dedicated volunteers were hard at work spreading 22 tons of sand in the playground on August 20, 2014.
Special thanks to the hardworking crew that made this project possible and the playground more playful: Bob and Joan Gonser, Paul Mattatall, Bob Ingram, Horst Fitzler, John Rocharz and Mike Massimi.
The EPOA also want to thank the DPW for hoisting the sand over the fence.
We had amazing weather on our Annual Summer Party at the Eidelweiss Beach on July 12. A lot of people and kids attended our party and we had a great turnout. Thank you for the EPOA members and volunteers for planning such a fun day for the Village. We appreciate it.
