Throwback Thursday

Going back 34 years in Bent Tree history…

The Architectural Committee used to be known as the Architectural Review Board, or the ARB.  The following is from a 1984 echo article about the ARB:

“If you are in doubt about what is in good taste, just contact the ARB and we will have one of our experts give you a professional opinion.”

The 20th

Regarding yesterday’s post…the part about the board member inviting everyone to join him for dinner at the 19th Hole on January 20th (in addition to joining him this Saturday)… Things have changed since the December echo article was written.

Reservations

Today is the last day to make reservations for Saturday’s 19th Hole Prime Rib special.  The notice has been updated to show that the beef is Certified Angus.

From the December 2017 echo:  “You pay for it in your assessment, but rarely use it. I’ve encouraged you, yes challenged you, to support what is yours. To that end, I am inviting you to join me Saturday, JAN 6, 2018, and again Saturday, JAN 20, 2018, at dinner.” - BT Board member. “One Man’s Opinion.” echo. Dec 2017: p 10.

§ 14–3–601

There is a lot of confusion about why a Bent Tree property owner has to apply to become a member of Bent Tree Community, Inc., before they can vote in Board elections. I’ll give some related history next week, but the short answer is spelled out in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A), under the chapter about nonprofit corporations“No person shall be admitted as a member without his or her consent.”

It can be pretty confusing.  Click here for a related post from last year.
