Easter Egg Hunt April 4 10-11am!!!
Any Teens or others out there that remember what a great time it was at your Hunt? I could use some hands to hide Eggs or hand out mass quantities of candy to lots of excited children!!!
The City of Edmond is delaying all trash and recycling pick up by a day this week because the trucks didn’t run Monday due to the sleet storm.
Annual Meeting time
Dear Copperfield Resident:
The annual members’ meeting of Copperfield Homeowners Association Inc. will take place at the Edmond Public Library (10 S Boulevard) at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 15, 2015. This is an opportunity for you to meet the board of directors who serve the Association.
These directors are owners just like you who devote substantial time and energy to making Copperfield a great place to live. I would personally welcome the opportunity to introduce you to these board members.
This is also an opportunity to be more informed about how your dues are utilized.
At the meeting, an election will be held to determine whether certain nominees shall be elected to the board of directors for a two-year term. The members may also transact such other business of the Association as may properly come before them. Business items and issues that may be discussed are as follows:
1. Financial reports;
2. Vacancies on the board;
3. Covenant compliance/enforcement Issues;
4. Reports from other association directors about their as-
signed duties/positions; and
5. Possible new projects for 2015.
Election ballots will be supplied at the meeting. On behalf of the entire board, I encourage you to attend the meeting, and cast your ballot in person. We look forward to seeing you there. If you cannot attend the meeting, however, please complete and mail the enclosed proxy so as to be received at the above address (1322 Fretz Drive Edmond, OK 73003) by 3 p.m., Thursday, January 15, 2015. This will enable us to cast a ballot for you in accordance with the terms of the proxy.

We anticipate having two longtime board members, Gary Moore and David Nunn, hang it up after very long tenures. We as a board and neighborhood owe a special thanks to these men for their long active dedicated service to us.
We will be looking for new blood and experience to help us keep Copperfield a desirable comfortable place to raise a family as well as remaining a good investment.
We need qualified Volunteers for the board positions and for various committees that support the board, including social activities for us all, and a welcoming committee for new homeowners, etc.!
Why volunteer on Copperfield Homeowners Association Board?
–Protect your self-interests. Protect your property values and maintain the quality of life in Copperfield.
–Correct a problem. Have you had difficulty, or do you have good ideas about how things could be done better?
–Be sociable. Meet your neighbors, make friends, and exchange opinions.
–Give back. Repay a little of what’s been done for you.
–Have some fun. Association work isn’t drudgery.
–It’s fun accomplishing good things with your neighbors.
–Express yourself. Help with creative projects like Copperfield beautification.
Since the Copperfield Homeowners Association is not a sponsor of, or affiliated with any social website, we needed a website to act as an electronic bulletin board to keep up with community activities for all homeowners to rely on between newsletters. This year Don Mecoy volunteered to set up the Copperfield website and post announcements from the board. (Thank you Don!) Please click on the site: www.copperfieldedmond.org
COPPERFIELD — Dues reminder — $225.00 Annually – NO Change again this year!
Dues are how we pay for all that is necessary to keep our neighborhood functioning and looking beautiful. The HOA mows many acres of common lawn, cares for the beautiful plantings at our lighted entrances, pays all the utilities to run the pool, lights and irrigation systems, manages and runs the recreation areas and the pool maintenance, coordinates the upkeep on our buildings with paint and repairs, manages the greenbelt areas cutting dead trees, maintaining our bridge and other necessities as they arise.
The majority of our residents pay their dues on time. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Covenant Corner –
A Section of Your HOA Copperfield Covenant regulation of this summer:
Vehicle Restrictions; No Trailer, Camper, Mobile home Commercial vehicle, Truck (other than Standard size pick-up truck), inoperable automobile, boat or similar equipment shall be permitted to remain upon any area…, other than temporally. Commercial vehicles shall not include sedans or standard size pickup trucks which are used for both business and personal use, provided that any signs or marking of a commercial nature on such vehicles shall be unobtrusive and inoffensive as determined by the association.
A covenant affects the use and enjoyment of the property and is said to “run with the land” or “touch and concern” the property. This means the covenant and the property are inseparable once the covenant is recorded, and all owners, present and future, are subject to the covenant.
Let’s all make arrangements to keep our trailers out of our driveways and our properties compliant with our Copperfield Covenants this new year of 2015.
The next board meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Jan. 15 at the Edmond Library, 10 S Boulevard. I will post more details as they become available.
Edmond Electric and the Edmond Urban Forestry Department will give out 460 free trees at Mitch Park near the Edmond Outdoor Ice Rink on Saturday, Dec. 13th from 8 a.m. – noon.
Trees will be available to Edmond Electric customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers must present a copy of their electric bill to receive a tree. Available species include red maple, red bud, sawtooth oak, red oak, and chinquapin oak.
Residents are encouraged to do the following before picking up a free tree:
• Be sure to consider the available planting spaces around your home since not every site is suitable for every type of tree.
• Please consider the size the tree will become and ensure it will not grow into overhead electric lines.
• Before planting, call Okie (Dial 811) to identify underground utilities
For more information about local planting, go to edmondok.com/trees.
