CPR and Defibrillator Certification

We are looking for BHP residents interested in being certified in CPR and use of a defibrillator.  Tentative training dates are October 16th and October 23rd at 6pm.  Class size will be limited to 14, and the training will likely be held at the BHP Clubhouse.  Please contact Cynthia at the DiLucia office, 609.804.3300, c.williams@dilucia.com, so that we can identify the size and number of classes required.  The cost is still TBD (estimated at $40). 


Are You Ready For Some Football?

The Moloney’s would like to invite all BHP residents to join them during the upcoming Millersville University football season to cheer on BHP resident, Neil Moloney during his senior year.  Join the Moloney family before the game and at the half time families’ tailgate.  After the game, there is a big party where the entire football team joins in the feast.   

The schedule is posted here on Millersvillle’s website:

Caught in the Act!

Carlene Moloney recently captured this photo of Alan Schmidt before a day of "mail-boxing".  Thanks to Alan and his crew for the fine work being done to keep the neighborhood looking great.

Among the folks who have helped to unload the palates of mailboxes when they are delivered, then store them, and then help to get them back out when Crestview Construction comes to assemble and install them are: Jim Young, John Valeck, Ed Mauthe, Gerry and Rosie Campbell, Bill Deutsch, Bob Mueller, Don Dreby, Mike Kennedy and a few others on occasion.  Then, it's Alan Schmidt and a couple of guys from Crestview who do the assembly and installation which includes making sure the right boxes, with the right numbers go on the right posts and are put in the right place outside the right homes in BHP!  Finally there is disposal of all the old posts and the cardboard from the shipping boxes.  Wow!  What a labor intensive process - our thanks to Alan and all who have helped in the mailbox transformation to date!

The mailbox effort is finished for 2014 and as a result, all of the homes on Country Club, St. Andrews and Jupiter Court now have new mailboxes, newspaper boxes and posts and all of the Bob Meyer homes on Country Club have new flags and will soon be tightened upon their posts as well!

Last night, I had the privilege of meeting the Galloway Blue Heron Pines Neighborhood Watch group. Chief Pat Moran and Officer Carolyn Buckley met with the group to go over ongoing concerns and to address questions. With an active membership, the Blue Heron group not only patrols their neighborhood but also offers helpful tips to the residents to deter crime. Thank you, Blue Heron Neighborhood Watch for helping keep Galloway safe.

Our BHP Neighborhood Watch Team consists of: John De Marco, Maurice Shepherd, Ron Bloom, Bob Mueller, Ron Tutunjian, Bill Reilly, Greg Salazar, Tom Kuhar, Don Dreby, Gary Middleton, Kerri Musto, and Dom Flora, Bob Coster, Al Stoughton, Gene McCann, and Larry O'Leary.  Thank you team!

BHP Highway Cleanup Crew!

As committee leader Alan Schmidt always says, "no matter how much we pick up, the stuff just keeps coming back!"  Thanks to the dedicated volunteer teamwork of the BHP Cleanup Crew, the roadways around our community remain as clean as possible as we battle society's unfortunate ability to litter in a beautiful area without feeling guilty.  Below you will find a few photos of some of the Friday and Saturday Crew, lead by Alan with incredible support from his wife Kathy.  New volunteers are always welcomed to join.  The next cleanup dates are Friday July 11 for Tilton Rd. cleanup (meet at the HOA Clubhouse between 8:30 and 9, get golf carts donated by BHP Golf Club, and hit the road),  and Saturday July 12 we'll meet again between 8:30 and 9 at the BHP HOA clubhouse, enjoy snacks provided by a team member, and then take care of business along Racetrack/Leipzig RDs.

Friday Crew: Jim Young, Joe Martelli, Alan Schmidt, Gene McCann, John Valek, Allan Sciscio, Joyce Bailey, Herb Cunitz (Kathy Schmidt taking photo!).  Also, there have been many others who have supported on Fridays not shown here and we sincerely thank them.

Saturday Crew: Jay McCoog, Jim Young, Alan Schmidt, Margaret Martelli, Joe Martelli, Bill Miles, Kathy Schmidt, Rae Smith, and Bob Smith.  Also, there have been many others who have supported on Saturdays not shown here and we thank them also.

On a recent Friday/Saturday trash pickup, an unimaginable amount of litter was picked up by the crew.  Can you imagine what our surrounding areas would look like if the crew did not tackle this problem on a monthly basis!  Thanks to Alan and Kathy Schmidt for keeping the crew together and remaining active and dedicated to our community.


Galloway Police Alert to the Community

From Galloway Police, PTL. Carolyn Buckley: "You may have read in the paper that we have been having many vehicles broken into overnight in Galloway.  These cars were unlocked in every call that we handled, so although there haven't been any burglaries to motor vehicles in the Blue Heron Pines neighborhood, it is just a friendly reminder to all that everyone should make sure that their vehicles are secured every night and that valuables are not left in plain sight.”

Press Release - Weather Disaster Preparedness!

Attention Neighbors, BHP resident Dolores McElhatton who works for Atlantic County Gov't as a part time librarian at the Egg Harbor City Branch received the following information that may be beneficial to all.

County Resources Help Residents Prepare for Snow/Ice, Heat, Hurricanes and More
 

Residents are urged to take this opportunity to check and replenish disaster supply kits, create and/or review family emergency plans including preparations for pets, review evacuation routes and locate contact information for their municipal emergency management offices. All of this information and more is available on the county’s emergency information and resource website at www.ReadyAtlantic.org.
 

Residents and individuals with properties or businesses in Atlantic County are also strongly encouraged to register with the county’s Community Notification System. Introduced in 2008 the system originally provided emergency alerts to landline telephone numbers only. Since then the system has been upgraded to include cell phone numbers and Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP) for those who choose to register them. The system currently includes 205,344 numbers from the Verizon phone system’s 9-1-1 database as well as 6,500 self-registered numbers. The Community Notification System can accommodate a primary and secondary phone number (i.e. home and cell) as well as two email addresses per account.
 

Residents who are registered through the Atlantic County Community Notification System can also receive direct alerts from the National Weather Service to their cell phones. This important feature helps to keep the public aware of potentially dangerous weather conditions, such as severe heat or storm activity, regardless of time of day or location.

BHP Pet Policy

In accordance with safety requirements, common courtesy, community restrictions, and township ordinances, dogs and pets may not run freely throughout the community.  It is essential that each homeowner provide for acceptable containment and restraint of pets within the confines of their own property.

All dogs and pets must be kept leashed and under control when exercising in the common areas of the community and should not be permitted to trespass on private property.

Please always pick up after your pets ! Animal waste contains high concentration of bacteria and disease causing microorganisms that can cause health concerns. Galloway Township requires homeowners to immediately and properly dispose of their pets solid waste from any public or private property. All dog walkers must dispose of their dogs waste (have plastic bag ready) since walking paths (sidewalks) are on public and private property. Dog walkers who use the BHP sidewalks should not allow their pets to urinate or defecate on your neighbors lawns or the grass strip between the sidewalk and the street. Please curb your dogs, or your back yards. The grass strip between the sidewalk and street is maintained by the landscape company and is part of your neighbors lawns. No animals shall be allowed to run loose at any time and owners must keep their subject property free and clear of any waste generated by the animal. Fines will be assessed to homeowners in violation of this policy.

The number of household pets (dogs and/or cats) cannot exceed two (2).
