Drummer Farms Gazette

Bimonthly Vol. VIII No. 4 August 2013


We have renewed our insurance policy with Greater NY Mutual, which had expired on July 27, 2013.

As a reminder, the ice dam deductible per unit was increased last year from $2,500 to $10,000. Therefore, you should contact your own insurance agent to make sure you have adequate coverage to cover this deductible. The master policy deductible remains at $5,000 for other claims.


R.J. McAuliffe Painting has completed the painting of building G (59-65DR) & building I (36-38DR and 1-3MH). They have also painted the front of building P (83-89DR).

Pool Closing

The pool is scheduled for closing the week of September 9th. We will post a notice on the pool door when the pool is officially closed. We hope you enjoyed the use of the pool this season!
