Mason and Palmer Kasprowicz launched their business last August and have been very busy filling orders for various fans of fly fishing. They are active members of Trout Unlimited where they regularly set up a table with their flies and take orders.
Thank you to Craig and Danielle Mattei for placing rocks below a drainage pipe on their property. This will help to slow the water flowing onto the common ground.
Scott Browning deserves a big pat on his back for removing ivy around a number of trees behind Alsop Ct. Scott is a scout with B.S. Troop 159. Job well done!
If you haven’t heard the Barred Owl hooting, you have missed one of the most familiar sounds attributed to an owl. The sound of the Barred Owl is sometimes likened to the phrase “Who cooks for you, who cooks for you-all?” Of course, they also have Hoots, Ascending Hoots and an Ascending-Wail, which is much like the sound humans can make blowing through two fingers placed in the mouth. All of these sounds have a purpose but are often only understood by the owls themselves.
Spring is finally here! Our landscape company, Genesis, has been hard at work cleaning up the winter debris and mulching. The grass has already been mowed three times thanks to all of that moisture we received this winter. Liming of the grassy areas has been applied. A big Thank You to Genesis for coming in several Saturdays in order to get the work done.

Attention all Deepwood Residents: Despite the remaining piles of snow that just might take months to melt, we must forward our clocks, so that means Spring has sprung! As we have hopefully shoveled our last pile of snow, the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) joins Deepwood Residents in looking forward to the fresh renewal that Spring brings; warmer air, blooming flowers and tree buds, outdoor activities and home improvement projects.
The latest snow, ice and very cold temperatures makes it difficult to think of Spring but the planning of projects in Deepwood are ongoing. Kate Davidson, our Landscape Architect, has attended several board meetings and provided her suggestions for Deepwood. In addition, those plans were on display at the 2013 Annual Meeting. She has narrowed the scope of work to include priority areas based on liability to the Association and erosion of the common ground. Kate has included plans for curb appeal which is necessary with any aging community.
On Thursday, the Deepwood Social Committee judged holiday decorations for this year’s contest. It was a very close matchup with many homes doing a wonderful job decorating. Now here are the results!
Special thanks are due to the following individuals for their contributions to the Deepwood community. If you have suggestions for neighbors who deserve a shout-out in the next newsletter, please contact Deepwood Communications:
- Joan and Ted Thayer for their continuing support to the community. Joan and Ted were awarded the Hope Anderson Citizen Award this year by the HOA Board.
- George Paine and Dennis Wisler for reinstalling the bulletin board at the pool house.
- Janet Day for contributing $1130 for stump grinding, plantings of two mature hollies, and mulching on common ground as approved by the Board. This is the second time Janet has generously contributed funds for a board-approved project.
