Drummer Farms Gazette

Bimonthly Vol. VI No. 4 August 2011

Air Conditioners

Please remember that if you are installing a window air conditioner, you must first get permission from the Board of Trustees. You can send your written request to Alpine by mail or e-mail and it will be forwarded to the Board for review.

Pool Reminders

Please remember that parking along the roadway near the pool is prohibited. If you need a ride to the pool, you must have someone else drop you off and then have your vehicle moved back to its designated parking space.

Also remember that babies must wear "swim diapers" in the pool. Diapers cannot be thrown into the trash barrels at the pool, they must be brought to the dumpster or disposed of at home.

Finally, please be respectful of our neighboring condominium, Parker Village, and DO NOT use their amenities.

We appreciate your cooperation.

New Website

In the next few weeks, you will get a "how to" brochure about the new community website specifically designed for Drummer Farms. This website is different from the current website as it is linked with Alpine. You will be able to register and create your personal account and access a lot of useful information on the site.

A few highlights of the website are listed below:
* View your account ledger; make online payments through e-check or by credit card.
* View documents, current financials, photos and calendar of events.
* View community directory, posted classifieds, and find answers to frequently asked questions.

Once you receive the brochure, if you still need any assistance logging into/creating your account, please contact Nancy Bosell at
