A Great Place to Live!
The 2020 membership drive is now underway and we ask that you please pay your annual dues as soon as possible to help make 2020 another awesome year in Merrymount! As the attached list indicates, we have 285 memberships recorded so far this year, leaving us about 100 memberships short of our 2020 goal. The list is current as of MAY 15, so if you have paid after that date, we will make sure you are on the next list. Also, if you have paid your dues (before May 15), and don't see your name on the list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (please do not reply to this email) and let us know. Membership dues are vital to pay property taxes, beach maintenance and landscaping, property insurance, utilities, etc. We have already spent over $15,000 this spring towards significant landscape improvements at the beach so we need to make sure all members pay their dues to maintain a healthy balance in the Association's account. Please pay your dues via PayPal or by sending in the membership form and check to 76 Longwood Road.
If you've recently paid your membership, or believe you paid previously but don't see your name, please reach out to email@example.com with how and when you paid and we will check again.
In addition to your dues, we need volunteers this year to make the events successful. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MerrymountAssociation/
Dues can be paid online (below) or by returning the membership form to Mark Sauter at 76 Longwood Road.
Please let us know if you have any questions or have any great ideas for this year!!
All the best -
Mark Sauter, President

Frequently Asked Questions About the Merrymount Association
Why should I be a member if I am away most of the summer and don’t participate in any events?
You and your family may not participate in any planned events, but you may use the beach during the summer or grab a hotdog and drink at the snack bar. You also may just drive by our beautiful and private beach on your way to work each morning. Membership dues pay for the maintenance of that beach, including cutting the grass, planting flowers, and collecting refuse in the summer. In the winter that effort continues with seasonal decorations and more clean-up activities. A beautiful beach is not only great to look at, but adds to your property value as well.
Doesn’t the Association get enough funds through dues? Where does the money go?
All dues are channeled right back into the organization to pay for beach maintenance and improvements, utilities at the snack bar, events such as the July 4th parade, insurance and taxes. All of these expenses continue to increase each year.
But, aren’t there enough members already? Why is my support and membership necessary?
Less than one-third of the total households in Merrymount are Association members. However, landscaping, maintenance and improvement costs continue to rise. To continue our mission, we need more members and more member volunteers to help out with events and improvements.
Okay, I’m convinced. But, how do I get more involved in the Association?
Contact a Merrymount board member or feel free to email email@example.com and let them know you want to get involved. We are especially interested in family members with young children who would like to help plan and coordinate age-appropriate events. Contact names are in the newsletters every resident receives.
