BRADFORD COLONY 1 & 2
(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD
ANNUAL ASSESSMENT AND FEES
It is nearing end of the year and the new year’s assessment will be upon us
again. If you can prepay your annual assessment a little every month, you can
avoid monthly fees and interests (as opposed to being late or an approved
payment plan after due date when you incur fees every month).
Please bear in mind that we have deed restrictions in our community. The
deed restrictions document can be found in TownSq. These restrictions are
created so that the property values in our subdivision can be maintained
and protected. Violations not corrected after repeat warnings may be sent
to attorney for legal actions to enforce the restrictions. This is only fair to all
the homeowners who always follow the restrictions and always submit ACC
requests to get approval prior to work done to the outside of their homes. It is
also a violation to have home businesses in our subdivision.
ACC requests are required and approval must be obtained prior to any outside
modification work done. Consequences of not doing so will include the
removal of what was done at owner’s expense and if warnings are ignored,
legal actions may follow. The Board does not like to take legal actions unless
really necessary. We are all homeowners in the same community and it is not
our preferred route to take care of issues. But if you are selling a home and
you have potential buyers coming to the neighborhood, you sure don’t want
them to have the impression that lawns are overgrown and yards are “junky”
and streets and driveways are crammed with cars resting on bricks…. The
curbside appearances of all homes do represent our entire neighborhood
and we do not want to be labeled as a “junky,” “appeared to be unsafe” or a
“run down” subdivision just because a few homes have out of control lawns
and home business which are making enormous amount of noise doing
work on their driveways every day. These are the main reasons citations go
out to the homeowners requiring corrective actions. The Board also wants to
thank all the homeowners and residents who have always comply with deed
restrictions or promptly corrected any problems., they do not go unnoticed
and we want to thank you to make this a pleasant community.
MONTHLY MEETING AND ANNUAL MEETING
Our monthly meetings is held on 2 nd Tuesday every month at 7 PM. We have
been holding the meetings via conference calls and will likely to continue
this format for a little longer. If you have registered in TownSq, you would
have received email notification every month with the phone number to join
Next meetings will be held on 10/12/21. Our 2021 annual meeting will be held
on 11/3/2021. Notice and proxy should be in the mail sometime in October.
The Board welcome our residents and homeowners to come and give
feedbacks and discussions, let us know your interests and things we can all
do together to make our community a more pleasant place to live in.
BRADFORD COLONY SECTION 3
At present, there are no plans to have a neighborhood wide garage sale for
BCS3 this year. But the Bylaws allow for individual residents to have up to four
garage sales per year.
If you are interested in having your own garage sale, please contact any Board
member to let them know you are planning to do this.
Thank you for your cooperation as to this issue.
CONTACT THE BOARD
As is the case with everything in our small neighborhood, every resident
should feel free to contact any Board member as to any issue or question
that you have about BCS3. Contact information for all the Board members is
located inside of this publication.
(CHC) NOTES FROM THE BOARD
Charlestown Colony is under new management. If you receive a deed
violation letter, please work quickly to resolve any home repair issues. The
new management company will be enforcing our deed restrictions to the
fullest extent allowed on a consistent basis.
Communications: The Associations will have the Inframark IMS TownSquare
website and downloadable app that will become the Charlestown Colony
Association’s official news channel for information, meeting notices and
announcements. The site is password protected and will host all governing
documents, policies and forms. Residents will have access to their own
Resident Portal to their Association account history, make payments
online, see open deed compliance items, set their account profile to receive
Association information via email, app or text, along with other options.
Customer Care: Inframark supports a team of trained personnel in the
Customer Care department. They are available from 7:30 AM to 6 PM by phone,
email or live chat from the www.inframarkims.com website. Customer Care
can answer general questions, make notations on your account or transfer
your call to the relevant department, such as Architectural Modifications or
ANNUAL HOA DUES:
Thank you to all who have paid your HOA dues! If HOA dues have not been paid
yet, expect a certified letter with penalties. In order to avoid additional costs
and fees, there are several options to make HOA payments. As of February 1 st ,
unpaid annual dues are considered delinquent and subject to late fees and
penalties. Our management company has new policies and procedures in
place to collect on past due HOA assessments. If these have not been paid yet,
please make every effort to pay or make a payment arrangement. The Board
worked diligently to maintain our HOA dues although the neighborhood
incurred additional expenses caused by the Artic Blast. There are several
payment options available.

(CC) CONCORD COLONY REVIEW
Unfortunately due to the rise of DELTA/COVID we have decided to cancel all
of the fall/winter in person events. We were very much looking forward to
hosting NNO, Pot Luck in the Park and Cookies with Santa but wish to keep
everyones health in mind.
We have added a Spook-tacular Contest this year! We will have 2 houses in the
neighborhood crowned - Scariest and fall festive! They will receive a prize and
have a newly made yard sign placed in their yard for all to see. (Sign will be
installed and picked up 10/22 & 11/1)
• Please make sure your exterior Halloween decor is up and running. Winners
of our Spook-tacular contest will be announced 10/22!!
• We will be having our 2 nd annual Christmas Cheer contest! 3 homes will be
given gift cards from a grocery store just in time for Christmas dinner.
• Christmas Cheer winners will be announced 12/17!
• Though Concord Colony did have intentions of a community garage sale
(October 16 th -17 th ), with the rise of DELTA/COVID cases we suggest every
household proceed with caution. We do not encourage a community wide
garage sale, however households can choose to host one. Please be careful.
Congratulations to our September winner of the Yard of the Month! THANK
YOU for keeping your yard and our community beautiful! Yard of the Month is
always and only announced on TownSquare for privacy reasons. There is only
1 more Yard of the Month award left for 2021!
Our monthly HOA meetings are held virtually via ZOOM on the 2 nd Tuesday
of every month at 7 PM. Details are always and only shared on TownSquare
website/app. Signs are also placed at the entrance/exit of our neighborhood
as well as a reminder on Nextdoor.com. There is a call in option for those who
do not have ZOOM capabilities. We do have intentions of going back to in
person meetings one day.

fun crafts to do
1. Start with the right pumpkin.
Choose one that's fresh, with a sturdy stem, no bruises, and a
flat bottom so it won't roll while you carve.
2. Cut from the bottom, not the top. Michael
Natiello, pumpkin carving pro and creative director for The Great
Jack-o'-Lantern Blaze, says cutting your "lid" from the bottom of
the pumpkin helps prevent the sides from caving in later.
3. If you do carve from the top, cut out the lid
on an angle. This way it won't drop inside the pumpkin
when you put it back on top, like it would with a straight upand-down
cut. A boning knife should work well for this.
4. Scoop out all the pulp (and then some). You
can buy a special "claw" for pumpkin gutting, but an ice cream
scoop will do just fine. Thin the inner wall of the "face" area to
1¼-inch thick, so it will be easier to pierce the shell.
5. Sketch out your design on paper first. If you
draw your jack-o'-lantern face to size, Natiello says you can
use it as a pattern: Just tape it to the front of your pumpkin
and use a fork or pencil to poke holes along the lines you want
to carve. (Or save yourself from creative blocks by getting a
pumpkin carving kit, complete with a marker, scraper, cutting
tools, and pre-made patterns.)
6. Hold the pumpkin in your lap. It's easier to create
features when the face is gazing up at you. Natiello suggests
using a serrated kitchen knife or an X-Acto knife for carving,
but to make intricate designs, you could try using a small saw.
Just don't cut on a slant — clean up-and-down slices look best.
How to carve a pumpkin
7. Start by making simple rough cuts. If you get
the big pieces of pumpkin out of the way first, you can go back
and clean up the edges of your design later.
8. Use your scraps creatively. Make a tongue, pipe,
or hair accessories out of a discarded piece of pumpkin shell,
9. Keep your pumpkin fresh. Natiello recommends
spreading petroleum jelly on the cut edges to seal in moisture.
If your pumpkin still shrivels a few days later, you can revive it
with a facedown soak in cold water for up to eight hours.
10. Create a chimney. First, leave the lid on for a few
minutes while the candle burns. Then make a small hole where
the lid has blackened. Or, save yourself the stress and go with
battery-operated votives instead.
11. Sprinkle cinnamon inside the lid. That way,
when you light the candle, your jack-o'-lantern will smell like
a pumpkin pie. Yum.

Hanging Bat Craft
Here’s a simple hanging bat craft for kids using empty toilet paper rolls. These
adorable cardboard tube bats are a great way for kids to help decorate for
fall or Halloween. They also make a great activity to go with the children’s
book, Stellaluna! (Free bat wing template is provided on website www.
Materials for Bat Craft
Cardboard tube (We used an empty toilet paper roll.)
Tempera paint (black or brown) and paintbrush
Construction paper (black or brown)
Black pipe cleaners
Single hole punch (This is my favorite! It can punch through multiple
sheets without making your hand sore!)
Marker (We used black and silver Sharpies.)
Bat wing template (optional)

How to Make the Bat Craft
1. Paint your cardboard tube either black or brown (depending on the color
bat you’d like to make). This is our favorite tempera paint to use. I love the
colors and it doesn’t have a strong paint odor like other tempera paints.
2. While the cardboard tube is drying, draw some bat wings onto
construction paper and cut them out. (If you don’t want to draw them
yourself, you can use our bat wing template.)
3. Glue the wings onto the back of the cardboard tube.
4. Cut out some little triangles from your construction paper to make
ears. Glue these onto the bat, along with some googly eyes. Use a marker
to draw a mouth.
5. Punch two holes in the bottom of your cardboard tube. This is where
the legs will go.

6. Cut a black pipe cleaner in half. Twist one end of each pipe cleaner
through each punched hole.
7. To make the feet, snip off the last inch of each leg. Wrap the one-inch
piece of pipe cleaner around the bottom of each leg. Fold the middle part
of the foot to make a hook for hanging.
8. Hang your bat up for fall or Halloween!
