What's Up in Bear Valley Springs?

An important election is coming up in June! The BVS Homeowner’s Association is having its annual vote for candidates for our board. Meet the candidates on Wednesday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Country Club. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about their goals. Your candidates this year are Peggy Bergman-Smith, Dain Hurst, Guy Munday and Jim Panek, who are re-running for three open seats. We also have two new candidates: Nick Beske and Joe Horswell. It’s important to get a quorum of eligible voters. If we don’t meet our quorum, the election has to be redone at a cost to you! So, please, do get out and vote. Each property owner in good standing is eligible.

Several volunteers showed up on Earth Day weekend to pick up litter inside the gate. The next opportunity to volunteer is on May 20, when we meet at 9 a.m. at the police station parking lot. We will pick up litter from the gate to Hwy. 202. If you hate seeing trash along the roadway, come and join the Litter Loathers.

Same day, May 20, at 1 p.m., come to the Garden Club meeting at the Equestrian Center where you will learn all about mulch for your garden, its advantages and drawbacks. Membership fees for the Garden Club is $10 for BVS residents, or $20 for non-residents.

On Saturday, May 14, the annual Rummage Sale will take place at Cub Lake from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of our community will also be holding personal garage sales that day.
