acc form & instructions - pages 22-23 Letter from the President
Our election of officers was held on the 3rd of November at a special session of the board and our new officers are as follows: Peyton Belunek - President Martin Courville - Vice President Bob Lockler - Treasurer/Secretary Alix Cabarcas - Director Larry Ingham - Director Phyllis King has resigned from the Board of Directors and Bob Lockler has been appointed in her place. Bob garnered the next most votes at the annual election in October. He brings a great deal to the board and we are lucky to have him! We hope you will all be able to make it to a board meeting in the near future to meet our new board in person and get to know us! Our meetings are the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at the neighborhood pool. If you wish to address the board on any matter, please contact the management company so you can be placed on the agenda for our meeting. Our Board of Directors made a presentation to our MUD board at their November meeting in attempts to get assistance with our park renovations. They have some beautiful long range plans to help us and have shown us the master plans for the future - which include a brick fence along Franz Road, a greenbelt along the easement, a park at Griffin House and Repiton, as well as additions to our existing park; but it seems that in the short term, we will be working alone to make the park a safer place to play. We will be working on this in the next few months and will report back to you with our progress. We were delighted, however, to build a new, strong, working relationship with our MUD; which will be a building block for future projects and ventures! We are now working with a new management company! You should have received a welcome letter from them near the end of November. After entertaining many bids, we selected the very best offer with the most advantages for the Hamlet. This should be a very positive move for our community! The name of the new company is Principal Management Group of Houston (PMG) and they may be reached by phone at 713-329-7100. Hilary Chala is the manager handling our community and she may be reached at the listed number. Please do not continue to contact PCMI, as they are no longer handling our neighborhood. Annual assessments have been mailed out! You should have received a welcome letter from PMG with instructions on mailing your payment to their office. Unfortunately, when PCMI mailed out the assessments they did not follow our agreement to place the new management company’s mailing address for payment remission.

We understand that times are tough but please make payment of your maintenance fees a priority! You are a vital part of this community and your prompt payment ensures that we can accomplish the goals of the Hamlet this year. Thank you in advance! We had a tremendous turnout for our November board meeting in support of the Harris County Sherriff’s contract! The board invited Sgt. Castleberry from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office to attend the meeting and we were delighted for homeowners to have the opportunity to address him directly with their questions and concerns. The board listened to your voice and has approved the contract with unanimous support. Please be aware that, with so few of our homeowners paying their assessments, this contract costs an enormous portion of our actual budget for the year. We urge you to pay your annual assessments on time in support of our deputy and our community!!! This year, we will have many projects to see through together. Our pool will need much work before it can open for the summer season. Our park is in need of immediate repairs. These are not minor projects and will require our monetary resources and our time in planning and preparation. We urge you to attend board meetings and be involved if these are topics of interest to you. This community belongs to all of us! Please be positively involved! As we welcome in the New Year together, let us focus on the goals we have in common and the community we share. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Peyton Belunek, President - Williamsburg Hamlet
Carta de la Presidenta
Nuestra elección de los funcionarios de la Junta Directiva de la comunidad se llevó a cabo el 3 de Noviembre en una sesión especial. Sus nuevos oficiales son los siguientes: Peyton Belunek - Presidenta Martin Courville - Vicepresidente Bob Lockler - Tesorero / Secretario Alix Cabarcas - Directora Larry Ingham - Director Phyllis King ha renunciado a la Junta de Directores y Bob Lockler ha sido nombrado en su lugar. Bob obtuvo el mayor número de votos que tuvimos en la elección anual en Octubre. Él trae una gran contribucion a la Junta de Directores y tenemos mucha suerte de contar con él! Esperamos que todos sean capaces de atender las reuniones de la Junta Directiva en el futuro próximo y poder conocer a sus miembros en persona. Nuestras reuniones son el cuarto martes de cada mes a las 6:30 pm en el club de la communidad. Si desea dirigirse a los miembros de la Junta en privado sobre cualquier asunto, por favor póngase en contacto con Alix Cabarcas para que pueda ser colocado en la agenda de la sesión ejecutiva. Nuestra Junta hizo una presentación a nuestra Junta del MUD #64 en su reunión de noviembre con la intencion de conseguir ayuda con las renovaciones del parque. Ellos tienen algunos planes muy hermosos de largo alcance que nos ayudarian a mejorar la imagen de nuestra subdivision y nos han mostrado los planes maestros que tienen para el futuro - ellos incluyen una cerca de ladrillo a lo largo de Franz Road, una zona verde a lo largo del final de la subdivision entre Silversmith y Mason Creek, un parque en Griffin House y Repiton, así como adiciones a nuestro existente parque; pero parece que en este momento vamos a tener que trabajar solos para hacer del parque un lugar más seguro para jugar. Vamos a trabajar en este proyecto en los próximos meses y les presentaremos un informe con nuestro progreso. Sin embargo, estuvimos encantados de construir una nueva y fuerte relación de trabajo con nuestro MUD #64 que será un elemento fundamental para futuros proyectos y negocios! Ahora estamos trabajando con una nueva empresa de administracion.
Deberían haber recibido una carta de bienvenida de ellos al final de Noviembre. Después de considerar muchas ofertas presentadas, se seleccionó la compania que mejor ventajas y servicios nos ofrecia. Esto es un paso muy positivo para el progreso de nuestra comunidad! El nombre de la nueva empresa es Principal Management Group of Houston (PMG) y que se puede llamar por teléfono al 713-329-7100. Hilary Chala es la administradora de nuestra cuenta y la pueden llamar al numero anterior. Por favor no continúe communicandose con PCMI, porque ya ellos no estan a cargo de administrar nuestra communidad.
World-Class Care. Hometown Heart.
Evaluaciones anuales han sido enviadas por correo. Ustedes deberian haber recibido una carta de bienvenida de PMG, la nueva compania administradora de Williamsburg Hamlet con instrucciones para enviar el pago de su evaluacion a su oficina. Desafortunadamente cuando PCMI envio las evaluaciones anuales, no siguieron las instruciones acordadas de incluir la direccion de la nueva compania para enviar su pago.

Tuvimos una gran participacion en nuestra reunion de Junta de Directores en Noviembre en la que nos exigieron continuar con el contrato del Sherrif de Harris County. La Junta Directiva invito al Sargento Castleberry de la officina del Sherriff de Harris County para que atendiera a nuestra reunion y nos complacio que los propietarios de Hamlet tuvieran la oportunidad de dirigirse al sargento personalmente con sus preguntas e inquietudes. La Junta Directiva escucho la peticion de los participantes y aprobo por unanimidad renovar el contrato. Por favor tenga en cuenta que con solo unos pocos de los propietatios pagando la evaluacion anual, el costo de este contrato es una enorme portion de nuestro presupuesto al año. Le urgimos que pague su evaluacion anual a tiempo en apoyo a nuestro diputado y a nuestra comunidad! Este año, vamos a tener muchos proyectos que necesitan ser aprovados en las Juntas. Nuestra piscina necesita muchos trabajos de reparacion antes de que se puede abrir para la temporada de verano. Nuestro parque tambien está en necesidades de reparaciones inmediatas. No se trata de proyectos menores y requerirá nuestros recursos monetarios y nuestro tiempo en la planificación y preparación de estos proyectos. Le agradecemos que asistan a las reuniones de las Juntas y esten involucrados en los temas de intereses para ustedes. Esta comunidad pertenece a todos nosotros. Por favor participe de manera positiva! Al darle la bienvenida en el Año Nuevo juntos, vamos a concentrarnon en los objetivos que tenemos en común en la comunidad que compartimos.

From the new website, you will be able to view our deed restrictions, bylaws, governing documents, financial reports, minutes from meetings of the Board of Directors, architectural review forms, pool information and general community information. The old website ceased to be updated in October and is no longer an official website of the community or the board of directors.

The board asks that those of you who have received letters from the management company comply with the requests to abide by the community’s deed restrictions. When you purchased a home in this community, you chose to participate in our rules and regulations. We all want a beautiful Hamlet and every home makes a difference! If you are having difficulty complying with the request, please contact the management company and explain your situation. Communication is the first step toward understanding!
Within this newsletter, you will find a new “Application for Approval to Modify Home or Property.” This year there have been some changes in the Texas State laws and our deed restrictions have evolved to reflect those changes. The new laws allow for solar energy devices, the display of U.S., Texas, and U.S. armed forces flags; and rainwater harvesting systems, as well as certain types of shingles. All of these additions to your home would require an architectural review and are only allowed in certain places on your home/lot. The deed restriction changes will be available on the new website once it is up - there will be a link from www.pmghouston.com. To avoid penalties, please complete the approval form before you begin any change or addition to your home, which will affect the exterior appearance of your property. Martin Courville is the board contact for architectural reviews; so if you have any questions regarding the approval process or if an application is needed, please contact him at 281-343-6881 or email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

By law, homeowners or contractors planning projects involving digging must call 811 at least 48 hours ahead of time. At no cost, the notification center will alert utilities such as electric, gas, cable and phone companies so they can mark the location of their underground lines. Following these simple steps can prevent an interruption of service or possible safety hazards: • Call 811 before you dig • Wait the required amount of time (at least 48 hours) • Respect the locator’s marks • Dig with care For more information, please visit: www.call811.com.

A Harris County Sheriff should be dispatched for the incident. (Williamsburg Hamlet’s contract deputy is JR BYRD and he will also receive a copy of your report.) Thank you for doing your part in keeping our neighborhood safe for our school children and residents.
STATE LAWS PROHIBIT POSTINGS
No postings of any kind on Street Signs, school signs on any other county information signs. This is a violation of State Laws. Our deputies have been asked to start ticketing those posting on these signs.
Architectural Review Committee Forms
The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) exists in order to maintain a quality of workmanship and materials, harmony of external design and color to enhance existing and proposed structures. The committee gives consideration to the location of the improvements with respect to the topography involved, the elevation of the finished grade in regards to flooding, drainage requirements, along with regard to both boundary and building lines. The objective is to maintain continuity of architectural standards, appeal and safety. Homeowners are required to apply for approval of any home repairs or improvements BEFORE they are initiated. The ARC application form
Full Service Auto Repair RV Repair High Performance “We may not be the only shop in town, but you can depend on us like we are.” 6103 Hwy. Blvd., Katy, TX 77494
is made available monthly through this newsletter along with directions for its filing. Without approval, the project may have to be completely re-done to specifications in deed restrictions at your expense. Please note that color swatches taken from the internet are not reliable and, therefore, are unacceptable for submission with your ARC form. The paint company itself provides such a disclaimer on its website also. Accurate color samples are available at local paint stores for their product. Thank you for your kind attention and compliance in this matter.
Notice of Homeowner Change of Address Required
Homeowners have always been required to supply notification of change of address to the management company, (PCMI) in writing. Without such notification, communications, such as the announcement of the Annual Meeting, the availability of pool tags and pertinent forms such as Proxy or Rights of Amenities, will be lost in the mail. Because we all need to reduce costs, the cost of such mailings will be passed on to you along with a fee to duplicate such mailings and/or copies of forms already mailed to the address on file. These extra costs can be avoided simply by adhering to the rules by advising PCMI of your new address. Contact Leigh Voreh personally at our management company, PCMI, at 281-870-0585. Please help us to save money you pay in annual dues that is paid out in much money per mailing, also in stamps, envelopes, paper, labor and time.

GARDENING TIPS FOR JANUARY
• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water than from lack of food. • Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering. • Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms. • Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before planting. • Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal. Water in. • Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze damage to crown. • House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce water for poinsettias. • Lawns: Remove thatch, aerate and feed with low nitrogen mixture. • Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed manufacturer s directions before spraying. • Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semi-shaded until rooted. • Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape. Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting unwanted canes out at base of plant. • Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds, keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new beds for roses. • Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist. • Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about 50% humus, including rotted manure. • Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but remove when weather warms.

One mentor, one student, one hour per week. KEYS brings adult role models into Katy ISD schools to motivate, encourage and inspire students on the brink of success. Mentors meet with their student on campus at a pre-designated time each week. As mentor and student build their relationship, they decide together how to spend their mentoring time. Whether spent playing games, reading or just talking, that one hour a week makes a tremendous difference in the life of a child. To be a KEYS Mentor, you need: • A belief in the potential of every child • Criminal history background check in compliance with the FCRA • One hour per week to spend with a child, on campus during the school day, during the school year • Participation in a brief campus KEYS orientation before you begin • Successful completion of a KEYS application and subsequent approval process

mentor Jim Burns visited Firethorne representatives last week to thank them for their generous support. The KEYS (Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success) mentor program is offered to Katy ISD students who are on the brink of success. Often, these students have been challenged by life circumstances outside of their control. Mentors meet with their students on campus each week during the school year, in between the school day. When Reyes’ mentor first met him, it wasn’t with the intent of becoming his mentor, it was with the intent of helping him organize his backpack, locker and life. After several weeks of helping Reyes get organized, Burns naturally fell into the role of becoming his mentor. For the next six years, Burns helped Reyes recognize his gifts, talents, intelligence and encouraged him to pursue his dreams.
Pictured (L-R): Jim Burns, KEYS Mentor; Eduardo Reyes, former KEYS student now attending the University of Houston; Dr. Cazilda Steele, Principal, Mayde Creek High School; and Wayne Meyer, General Manager, Firethorne.
Firethorne Leads the way as KEYS Platinum Sponsor

As a KEYS sponsor, Firethorne is helping to create scholarships for students who have participated in KEYS through their senior year. This is the first year that PIE has opened sponsorship levels for KEYS, with 100 percent of the sponsorship dollars going directly to KEYS Scholarships. Former KEYS student Eduardo Reyes and his KEYS

GIFTED STUDENTS GET CREATIVE WITH TRASH
Hundreds of gifted and talented elementary students enjoyed getting together at the Katy Parents of Gifted & Talented (KPGT) GT Create Date, to make puppets out of recyclable materials. Students and parents let their imaginations loose as they turned trash to treasure at this fun event co-sponsored by KPGT and KISD. Led by professional puppeteer Greg Ruhe from Puppet Pizzazz and professional artist Taylor Perry, the children enjoyed an inspiring and hilarious puppet show before launching into their own creations. The Katy Parents of Gifted and Talented (KPGT) organization was formed in 1987. It is a non-profit organization. KPGT aims promote the welfare of gifted and talented students by empowering KISD families and educators with information, resources, tools and voice to ensure opportunities that encourage gifted students’ passion for learning.

Demographic Update Shows Continued Growth for Katy ISD
During the October 24th Board of Trustees meeting, Dr. Pat Guseman, president of Population and Survey Analysts (PASA), presented the 2011 Demographic Update that shows steady growth for Katy ISD, at a rate of approximately three percent each year over the next five years. While slightly slower than the rapid growth experienced between 2001 and 2009, the report shows approximately 23,000 additional students moving to the district during the next 10 years. The district also announced that as part of the Long Range Facilities Plan process, Katy ISD has entered into the initial stages of the Attendance Boundary Modification (ABM) process. Last November, Katy ISD voters approved a bond referendum that included five new campuses – three elementary schools, one junior high and one high school. Four of the five campuses are set to open in fall 2012 and High School No. 7 is slated to open in fall 2013. Katy ISD is a TEA Recognized district serving more than 62,000 students. Covering 181 square miles west of downtown Houston, Katy ISD is comprised of 53 campuses and with more than 8,000 employees is one of the largest employers in the West Houston area.
