Hello All, CBT is having their Garage Sale starting on Thursday (6-20-2024) - Saturday (6-22-2024) Let me know if you want to be included on this event. As we get closer to the event I will drop off balloons for you to place on your mailbox for ease of communication. I will also submit a "garage sale" notification with the Northwest Herald to get the word out. Best regards, Cesar.

Hello CBT Neighbors, On Memorial Day, we honor the courageous men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Their bravery, dedication, and unwavering commitment to the principles of freedom and democracy are a difficult reminder to us all of the true cost of the liberties we enjoy every day. This Memorial Day let us take a moment express our deepest gratitude to those who have served and those who continue to serve. Their sacrifices ensure that we can live and work in a nation where liberty and justice prevail. Thank you. Your CBT HOA Board.   P.S. I would also like to encourage you to join us on a newly created Facebook (FB) account. It was successful in communicating and celebrating the Progressive Dinner this weekend. The FB account to search is "Covered Bridge Trails HOA – Crystal Lake, IL". Once you log into it with your name and CBT address, we will be able to confirm your information and approve your request to join.

As previously mentioned recognizing your positive feedback regarding your desire to attend the Progressive Dinner and due to other commitments including Spring break, we thought it would be best to reschedule this event for Saturday April 13th. For those of you new to the CBT neighborhood the Progressive Dinner is an opportunity for the adults to get together and live it up.  It’s also a great way to meet your neighbors in a relaxed social environment. This is a guaranteed good time with your neighbors! More details will follow, but in the meantime mark your calendars now and let me know if you’d like to be a host house. To make this work we need 3 houses to open their doors - you don’t need to do anything beyond allowing your awesome neighbors to hang out for a bit. Host houses needed for hosting the following: ·         House 1 to host Appetizers. ·         House 2 to host the Main dish. ·         House 3 to has the Dessert. We’ll assign an appetizer, main dish, or dessert to everyone who attends so being a host doesn’t mean you need to prepare any food!  We'll provide all paper products, utensils, and non-alcoholic drinks.  We just need your support to provide the host house space. The entire night is BYOB Loose schedule is as follows: ·       House 1 - appetizers. 7:00pm -8:30pm ·       House 2 - main dishes 8:30pm -10:00 pm ·       House 3 - desserts. 10:00pm -???   Please let me know if you’ll attend and if you’ll be a host house. The event only works if we have multiple houses...without that we lose the progressive nature of the progressive dinner.  More to come...! · RSVPs:  Please RSVP directly to me at cesar.mr.fixit@gmail.com  by Saturday March 30th.  Once I have all RSVPs, I can do food assignments.  If you have a strong preference for bringing a certain dish, just let me know and I can accommodate.  Otherwise, we’ll let everyone know if they need to bring an appetizer, main dish, or dessert. · P.S. – We are working on a “theme” for this event to make it more exciting…   More details to come. Looking forward to hearing from you…   Cesar.

The annual CBTHOA meeting will be held at Nunda Township Hall on Tuesday January 23, 2024 at 7:30 PM. The Hall is located at 3518 Bay Road, Crystal Lake, IL 60012. We will discuss the upcoming 2024 budget and take comments and suggestions. One of the positive characteristics of living in CBT neighborhood is the "close community" atmosphere that we strive to maintain through various family events including Ravinia in the Park, Neighborhood Picnics, Progressive Dinner, Deck Crawl, Halloween Trick or Treating, Easter Egg Hunt, Garage Sales, and more. But to keep this spirit alive we need help in driving these programs. If you are interested in becoming more involved with our community possibly driving one (or more) of the above listed events, feel free to reach out to us. We will also be available to discuss more details at the Annual Meeting. Lastly, we want to say thank you to Robin Pence - our Social Committee Director. Robin is stepping down from this position in order to give others a chance to experience this Leadership opportunity. If you are interested in this open position on the CBT Board if you are looking to learn more about what we do on the Board feel free to reach out to us. We're looking forward to seeing you. Your CBT Board

Hello CBT neighbors, The final leaf pick up for our part of the neighborhood was scheduled for the week of Nov 20th. (see link below) https://www.nundasupervisor.com/?embedded_webview=true(https://www.nundasupervisor.com/?embedded_webview=true) Although this fell on the Thanksgiving holiday, I sent a note to the Nunda Supervisor letting them know that a few areas in our subdivision were missed. I was asking them for feedback on how and when they would finish this scheduled task. ============================================================================= Below is their response: With being behind a little and now with the snow, they are finishing Covered Bridge tomorrow (Tuesday 11-28-2023). I don’t know if this will include leaves out after the time frame. If you have specific streets, please let me know. The option to bag is open until the first of December. =================================================== ========================== Being that the cutoff was the week of November 20th if you haven't put your leaves out in a pile by now there is no guarantee that your leaves will be picked up. Your option will be to bag the leaves and have them ready no later than Friday December 1st. Regards, Cesar.

Dear CBT Neighbors, It was brought to our attention two weeks ago that someone had stuffed 2 white Adirondack chairs in the pine trees at the Pilcher Park. Were happy to report that these chairs have been returned to their rightful CBT owner. Please talk to your children about the 2 white Adirondack chairs that were stuffed in the pine trees at our beautiful Pilcher park. This behavior is unacceptable and is becoming a dangerous trend for a prank. Removing the 2 white Adirondack chairs from somebody's property is both trespassing and theft. We need our children to understand that there are consequences from their behavior. Our bigger fear is that someone may get trigger happy and a simple prank turns into a deadly nightmare. We've already heard in the news of children walking onto private property for the right reasons and having tragic outcomes. PLEASE don't let that happen here. Please share this feedback with your children. Thank you. Your CBT Board.

Hello CBT Neighbors, Your CBT - HOA Board has been informed of several instances where neighbors have been walking through the neighborhood whether walking their pets, enjoying a social walk, or otherwise enjoying our wonderful neighborhood. In the process of their walks they have been attacked by dogs who were not leased nor maintained under control on the dog owner's property. As a reminder below is a snippet from the CBT By - Laws regarding home owners responsibilities and their dogs. ========================================================================== ARTICLE XIII RESOLUTIONS This section contains the Association resolutions, and explains and clarifies some of the covenants. 1. Dogs (adopted and incorporated 12/5/77, revised 2/5/03). All dogs must be confined to their own premises except when on an eight-foot leash. All dogs must have current vaccinations against rabies and must wear the current rabies tags. All dogs must be registered with the county and wear the current county dog licenses. Owners are required to clean up after their dogs. ========================================================================== What makes CBT attractive is the large lots, plenty of mature trees providing a peaceful country feeling, and wide streets with little traffic. A perfect environment for walking, running, and bike riding are common activities. Please help us keep this attractive spirit alive and keep our neighborhood safe by doing your part and maintaining your pets under control. Thank you. Your CBT Board.
