If Greenmeadow is expecting the majority of its members, the Associate Members, to step up and fork out money to save Greenmeadow for the next 40 to 50 years, then Greenmeadow needs to reconsider their by-laws that doesn't allow two thirds of its members to vote, doesn't allow two third of its members to participate on the board and stop treating two thirds of its members like second class citizens. The 'exclusive private club funded by the public' approach needs reform.
As daunting and costly the items on the aging Greenmeadow facilities list are, Greenmeadow needs to pull their heads out of the sand and address the elephant-in-the-room and not just hang up when calling members who do not want to return. Greenmeadow needs to understand the reasons behind the mass exit that took place this year.
Ironic that the current GM administration has cost Greenmeadow more money then Kimball ever did.
