Facebook and Website Changes

As of September 14, 2017, mysherwoodglen.com and the Sherwood Glen Facebook group will no longer have any official affiliation with the Sherwood Glen Board, or the Sherwood Glen Condominium Association. All future content on the website will represent the views of the owner/webmaster, Art Wolinsky, and those of you who contribute..

Lest there be any confusion, this is not being done because of any dispute or disagreement with the board.  Some of you may remember that back in 2013, as president, I attempted to get people to utilize Great North Connect as the official business site and to use MySherwoodGlen as a community site, but simply wishing it, does not make it so.

MySherwoodGlen was the first and only online access to information from the board. Training and information was provided to the community about its use. It was created well before Great North Connect was introduced to the public. Unlike the necessary one size fits all Great North Connect, MySherwoodGlen was custom designed with our residents in mind. As a result it was, and still is the site of choice for residents.

If you have any questions and concerns about Association business, please direct them to Great North. Great North Connect will be the official site for minutes, financials, correspondence with the board, maintenance requests and other business.

Mysherwoodglen.com will remain much the same, but there will be some subtle, but significant changes, some of which will revolve around this blog.  While it is titled MySherwoodGlen, I want you to think of it as OUR-SherwoodGlen.


While this blog and this website are no longer associated with the Board, as a previous member and president,  I would be happy to entertain topics of discussion or answer questions that will be of benefit to the community as a whole.

Feel free to use the Contact Page to reach me or email me at art@mysherwoodglen.com

The Facebook group will also be changing. I'll be inviting more folks to participate and will open the group to discussions on community topics, guided by community standards which will be posted.  

I was a teacher for 40 years, and as such, I set the same standards for this site as I did for my classroom.  My classroom was focused on problem solving and communication. There was only one rule. USE COMMON SENSE AND COMMON COURTESY. There will be no personal attacks or bitching.  If you have a question or a problem that you need addressed, let's come answers and come up with a win-win solution for the community.
