Williamsburg Settlement’s Yard of the Month for October 2019
is awarded to Patrick and Patricia Schrum of 22314 Bucktrout.
The Schrums have lived in the Settlement for 20 years and over
this time have raised two children who have now given them
three grandchildren. Both Patrick and Patricia are semi-retired
giving them plenty of time to enjoy golfing, traveling, working
in their yard and attending their grandchildren’s activities.
Like so many of our residents they like the Settlement because
of their great neighbors and the quietness of the subdivision
resulting from it being largely isolated from through traffic
Patricia describes their yard as being basic, clean and
simple which, she says, makes working in it that much more
enjoyable. Their yard is neatly manicured with heavy stone
rocks that border their pine trees and flower beds, these beds
containing a variety of plants including gardenias, viburnum
loropetalum, driftwood roses, a juniper tree, lady of the night,
leopard ear, wood fern, society garlic, day lilies and caladiums.
Congratulations Patrick and Patricia Schrum on being
awarded our October 2019 Yard of the Month. Thank you for
your continued outstanding contribution in adding such
beauty to our neighborhood.

2020 MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT

At its September 17, 2019 meeting, your Board of Directors finalized the

The table below gives the amount forecasted in each income and
cost category followed by a pie chart illustrating pictorially how the
maintenance fees are spent. This data together with that for the previous
four years is also shown in the Budget section of the Association website
www.wsmaonline.org where you can review it at any time.
The Board is committed to careful management of expenditures and
continued emphasis on collecting the funds that are owed to the

up attempts to meet some new residents who were not home on his
previous visits. A copy of the activity report was included in the meeting
National Night Out Planning
Chris Cox updated the Board on the National Night Out planning. Chris
stated that he has obtained a proposal from James Coney Island to
provide hot dogs and staff for the event for a cost in the order of $930. He
also reported that he was successful in requesting donation funds from
various organizations. The Association has booked the bounce houses,
photo booth and Chris is inquiring on a DJ to not only play music but also

Association Reserves. The reserve study calculated that the Association
is currently 97.7% funded. Dave motioned that the Board accept the

PET ID TAGS
Folks - as soon as the vet gives your young pets their Rabies shot
remember to get their ID tags. The Rabies tag lists the name, phone
number and address of the vet. So! All you need to do is put the Rabies
tag onto the pet’s collar and leave it there all the time. That way, if the
pet gets loose, anyone finding him or her can look at the tag to see the
vet’s phone number and call to report the lost animal. Better yet, add
another tag to your pet’s collar that lists the dog or cat’s name and your
own phone number or address. You can get these from any pet store.
When a pet has these but goes astray, anyone finding it can call you and
you can go get him or her right away. Your pet will be very glad to see you!
A happy pet is a loving pet.

VETERINARY PUBLIC HEALTH LEASH LAW
Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.
While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone
who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid
of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting
hurt trying to avoid the animal. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called
Harris County Animal Control) advises that, “All dogs and cats must be kept
under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas.
The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any
unlicensed dog or cat or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Restraint
is defined as the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances:
1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6) feet in
length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of
controlling or governing the dog or cat in question.
2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle.
3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not
have access to sidewalk to street.
While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work
or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.
Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all
our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect
anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet
owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing
to properly restrain their pet.
KATY AREA PLAYGROUP
A Katy area playgroup for stay at home moms and their infant-preschool
aged children in the Williamsburg area meets every Monday at different
locations. If you interested in participating or finding out more about the
playgroup, please contact the playgroup coordinator, Laura Bannerman,
at email@example.com. Please share this information with

Gardening Tips For November
• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low
areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.
It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to
eliminate those low spots.
• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow
on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.
• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.
• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.
• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now
will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and
allow to mellow.
• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.
• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;
they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.
• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.
• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
