Maintenance Committee
At long last, the missing Arrowhead Lane sign has been replaced. Jim Huhta made the new sign. He and Jim Bornhoffen installed it. I did what I do best -- watched. The committee will be doing an assessment of the drive in Spring. Please let us know of any issues near your property. Paul Kasriel, GDA Maintenance Liaison

Fire Safety
As we hopefully anticipate the warm summer months, please remember to practice fire safety.  Small beach fires are legal without a permit, but PLEASE use caution!  For complete details review the Guidelines For Guests and Renters (applies to us homeowners, too!!) under the Bylaws tab.

RUSTIC ROAD ARTICLE - (Ginny Z., 05/21/17)
I found this fascinating story online today, from Madison. The Rustic Road system, of which Glidden Drive is a part, is one to be admired, letting those that drive such a road that the past is still a big part of the present. Click here to read the whole article.  

ATTEMPTED BREAK IN ON THE DRIVE (Nancy G. 05/09/17)
There was an attempted break-in along Glidden Drive this week. The police were called.  Just a friendly reminder to report any suspicious activity to the police, ensure that security systems are in place and notify your caretaker to be extra vigilant.

NEXT DOOR APP AND WEBSITE - (Larry M. 05/07/2017)  
A friend told me about the site “Next Door” which has an app as well as a web site (nextdoor.com) and I created a community site for all of the Glidden Drive residents to have active conversations, broadcast lost and found, crime activity, sell/swap things, share news, etc. The site is: gliddendrive.nextdoor.com and people can sign up at: https://nextdoor.com/invite/ddkyhbqtpytpycndnrnb.  We need to get 9 members signed up in the next 6 days to keep that sight active or we need to start all over.
