With great reluctance and our sincere appreciation for his long and remarkable service to this community, the Board of Directors of the Silver Valley Condominium Association accepted a formal letter of resignation from our good friend and neighbor, Paul Shope. For 15 years, Paul has served as Treasurer and then President of the association. His skill with numbers, solid business sense, and attention to detail have kept a close eye on our finances. If you see him, a smile and a thank you are in order.
At the same meeting, unit owner, Ray Shroyer, was named as an interim Board member. He will complete the balance of Paul Shope's term and, hopefully, seek a full two-year term in May of this year. Ray brings a wealth of practical experience and formal training to his Board service: He is retired from the aerospace industry where he worked as a mechanical engineer; additionally, he has a good grasp of construction practices and contracts, having acted as his own general contractor in the building of a previous residence. Please join us in welcoming him.
