Important Reminders from the Office Submitted by Elizabeth Panzano, Community Manager | Email: hopyardfarm@verizon.net

MANAGER'S MESSAGE Is it Spring yet? The holidays are behind us, and hopefully you are still working on a couple of our New Year’s resolutions. I have absolutely loved the last couple months here at Hopyard Farm. Thank you so much to everyone who has given me such a warm welcome! In case I haven’t had an opportunity to meet you yet, I’m Elizabeth Panzano, but you can call me Beth. I live in Spotsylvania with my two awesome kids and our cat. I have been managing HOAs and condominium associations since 2002. I look forward to getting to know everyone here so please do not hesitate to come by the office if there is anything I can help you with or just to say hello! Speaking of resolutions, the fitness center has been getting quite a bit of use! We have recently had a couple of pieces of equipment repaired, and I want to remind everyone to lower weights down slowly on all equipment to avoid damage. Kids under 16 years old are not permitted in the fitness center without a parent present. If kids are using the gym inappropriately, the homeowner (parent) whose key fob they are using will be held responsible. I’d like to take this time to thank all of our community volunteers for lending your time and talents. Our committees are a very important part of making Hopyard Farm such a wonderful place to live. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community and meet some great people…your neighbors! If you are interested in getting involved, please contact me. We need help in the following areas: Backyard Wildlife Management, Covenants Committee, Finance Committee, Pool and Recreation Committee and Communications Committee. Committee sign-up forms are located on Town Square and are available in the office. 6

As a reminder, trash/recycling cans are not permitted to be stored on your driveway or on the side of your home unless they are within an approved enclosure. Trash and recycling pick up is on Fridays, but if you have any large items to throw away just contact County Waste at 540-899-7722 for a special pickup time. Please keep your pets on a leash at all times and remember to clean up after them. Please note that the Developer is no longer responsible for plowing the streets that have been turned over to VDOT. These sections are 1 and 3. Please contact VDOT if you have any questions about plowing. Each homeowner is responsible for clearing the snow from the sidewalk in front of their home. Don’t forget that February is American Heart Health Month, Black History Month, Friendship Month and February 17th is Random Act of Kindness Day! n

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Submitted by Dan Sweeney, President | dsweeney@hazelland.com Greetings Hopyard Homeowners! It’s a new year and a new decade; welcome to 2020 – I hope it’s been a good one for you so far. It’s hard to believe the first month of the year has come and gone, and we’ve had our first HOA meeting of 2020. Our weather has been fairly mild thus far, but we still have February and March to contend with. I hope the weather trend will continue. Just a reminder in case of snow, VDOT is responsible for snow removal in Sections 1 and 3 (Bakers Lane, Champe Way, Coakley Drive {Clubhouse to Cul-de-Sac}, Fullers Lane, Hawser Drive, Hopyard Drive, McCarthy Drive, Nellie Lane and Parsons Lane). All remaining sections are the responsibility of the Developer – Hazel Land (Bagpipe Lane, Brassica Lane, Brewery Court, Coakley Drive {Clubhouse to Weems Drive}, Emerald Drive, Ianthas Way, Longbow Road, Spinnaker Lane, and Weems Drive). To all of our new homeowners: Welcome to Hopyard Farm! Your new community is a very active one! There are five (5) committees: Backyard Wildlife, Communications, Covenants, Pool and Recreation, and Finance. Please consider joining one of them; they are always looking for new volunteers, and it’s a great way to meet new homeowners and to get involved with your

community. If interested, please contact Elizabeth Panzano in the community office and pick up an application. To our current Board and/or Committee Members: Thank you for you serving the community! We appreciate all of the time you spend to keep things moving and to make Hopyard such a fun place to live. We know that time spent on the HOA is time spent away from your family, and the community is so fortunate to have you. As always, a couple of friendly reminders: 1) please watch your speed through the community – the safety of our residents should be important to everyone; and (2) please don’t forget to pick up behind your pets when walking through the neighborhood. It only takes a moment and your neighbors will be grateful for the kind gesture when they stroll through Hopyard Farm. Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 16, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. in Hopyard Hall. This is the 2020 Annual Meeting. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. I look forward to seeing you there.

Dan Sweeney

By Jon Burroughs

at-home mom. Jenn is originally from Buffalo, New York, and enjoys spending time on the water, travelling and meeting new people. She’s found joy at our community pool and loves meeting new neighbors. Jenn likes to travel and read; she hopes to explore all the fun places Virginia has to offer in the years to come.

MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS The past twelve months have yielded significant growth to the Hopyard Farm community. Nevertheless, the community culture hasn’t changed. Neighbors greet each other with a wave driving in and out of the community, stop to chat at the bus stop, or pause their family walk to speak to one-another. The sense of community within the Hopyard Farm neighborhood is strong; it connects us together and radiates to everyone who visits us for the first time. For the February issue of Hopyard Voice, I got to chat with Hopyardigans for whom our sense of community call - The Dave Family of Bakers Lane. Abhay and Jennifer “Jenn” Dave moved to Hopyard Farm from Connecticut in July of 2019 with their two children, Nadya and Antonio, and their family dog Lilly. Abhay and Jenn have been married for ten years and met in Rochester, New York. After a brief residency in Abhay’s native Connecticut, the couple moved to Virginia to continue Abhay’s career path. After just a few short months as Hopyardigans, the Dave Family know they will be our neighbors for years to come. Abhay has worked for the U.S. Marshals Service for 14 years and is currently the Assistant Chief of Congressional Affairs in Arlington, Virginia. Abhay attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Criminology. Abhay is a health and fitness enthusiast who enjoys sharing his passions with others. He spends his free time exercising and rooting for his favorite football team, the New England Patriots. Jenn, a former property manager, graduated from Bryant & Stratton College with an Associate’s Degree in Business. She is currently employed by the Dave children as a stay8

Four-year-old Nadya is a precocious little ball of fire. Despite her young age, Nadya has a love of photography and spends time snapping pictures of everything she sees. Adorned in her princess dress, Nadya enjoys rough-housing with dad, playing with her Barbie dolls and Power Wheel vehicles. Antonio, a kindergartener at Sealston Elementary School, is finding a love of sports at an early age. At just five years old, Antonio plays T-ball and wrestles. When he’s not playing with his friends, you can find Antonio climbing trees. He looks forward to joining our Hopyard Hammerheads swim team this summer. While spending time with the Dave family, the minutes went by unnoticed. Although I was there to interview them for the article, the Dave family spent time getting to know me too. Their graciousness and genuine love of our community shone through during our time together. Whether walking in the neighborhood or hanging out by the pool, you’ll find the Dave family ready to meet you - make sure to say hello! n

Each year we review the guidelines and propose changes to the board.

KG Animal Control - Dog At Large There is no Leash Law but a Running At Large law: As long as you can control your dog vocally or any other means that your dog will respond to you so not to be loose on its own without supervision. However, if you feel it is safer and more secure for your dog to be leashed, then please do so. In areas where there are a lot of people or animals, I would leash my dog anytime it’s off its property. As long as your dog is on its property (YARD), it does not have to be confined, fenced, or leashed. However, again it is safer if your dog or any animal is supervised at ALL times. Kevin Eller, Animal Control Supervisor King George Animal Control DEFINITION Running at large. A dog shall be deemed to running at large while roaming, running or self-hunting off the property of its owner or custodian and not under its owner’s or custodian’s immediate control.

County Ordinance Taken from the State Code • Sec. 3-47. - Running at large prohibited; penalty for violation. (a) It shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog to allow a dog to run at large anywhere in the county during the months of April, May, June and July of any year. (b) It shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog to allow such dog to run at large at any time, in the areas of the county zoned R-1, R-2, R-3, C-1, C-2, I-1, I, in any trailer park, manufactured home park, in any area designated as a major subdivision under the most current zoning ordinance as amended from time to time; in county parks; or on the grounds of any school property or property operated by the county school board. (c) An animal control officer, law enforcement officer or other officer may issue a summons to the owner and/or custodian of the dog subject to these provisions, to appear in court for a hearing on the matter. (d) A violation of this section shall result in a civil penalty of $50.00 for a first violation, $100.00 for a second violation, and $150.00 for every subsequent violation. Each occurrence of a dog belonging to a particular owner running at large in violation of this chapter shall be considered a separate violation and an additional penalty shall apply as set out in this section regardless of whether or not it is the same canine or canine crossbreed previously found to be running at large.

A Placeholder in Time That Stirs Emotions and Ignites Memories By Christina Burroughs

The wind lightly brushes the leaves and the seeds that had grown into beautiful blossoms wither back to the ground from which they came. The elapsing of time can’t be stopped; it waits for no one. In the blink of an eye, everything can change. However, it often feels like nothing changes at all until an old photo falls out of a box or social media flashes back to a time in the not-so-distant past. Some of the most precious things in life are the things that flood hearts with memories in an instant like a photograph, a letter, a diary, or maybe just a post-it-note. The Feature Family article is a prime example of a placeholder in time that stirs emotions and ignites memories. To the neighbors in the community, it introduces a family or an individual; it teaches them something they didn’t know and creates a way to relate when an obvious conversation starter doesn’t seem present. Neighbors can appreciate the diversity that beautifully melds to create this community called home. This community is an anthology made up of all the stories of its residents. The Feature Family article is an artifact of those stories; it’s a recapping of a person or family’s legacy; a chance to remember a loved one who’s no longer with us or a pet that


HOPYARD VOICE • February 2020 / March 2020

crossed over Rainbow Bridge. The Feature Family article is a little one’s favorite bedtime story and a chance for them to feel famous and proud of their family. For a parent, it’s a way to look back and remember all their child’s favorite things to do or maybe just one special dinosaur. It’s a unit of measurement to gauge how far one’s really come, and a tool to remember one specific day that family came together for photographs and discussed everything important in that one moment in time. The Feature Family is a smiling face on what may have otherwise been a stack of bills. It may be waiting to greet you on the best of days or maybe even the worst. It’s a reminder of why residents here chose Hopyard. For those families who choose to be Feature Families, it’s their own family smiling back at them reinforcing the best day or converting the worst. Hopyard Voice is looking for Feature Families and Individuals for future issues to keep the “anthology” going, and your story’s exactly what’s needed next!
