Hello everyone,

Our hours for Trick-or-Treating on Monday night will be from 5 PM to 8:30 PM.

If you are not participating in the event or are finished for the night (IE-run out of candy) please turn off your porch light. We ask that those Trick-or-Treating please by-pass any home with their porch lights off.

Thank you and have a safe holiday!

Please Read: Safety Issues

Good Day Dear Residents,

RE: Unsafe Conditions & UN-RULY Children

This morning we had an issues with UN-RULY Children from the community throwing rocks at our Landscape Vendors at the Bus Stop inside of Weston Hills.
The Children were surrounded by adults who did NOT step in to reprimand them for their BAD behavior.

A week ago the school bus driver had to stop his bus after he entered the gates to Weston Hills causing a back-up onto Hwy 27.
When the volunteers of Weston Hills saw the backup, the volunteer RAN up to the Gate to see how they could HELP!
This is because people have been killed in front of the community due to back up of traffic on Hwy 27.
The Bus Stop was moved from Hwy 27 to inside the community to keep the children safe.

The Bus driver had to stop the bus due to un-safe driving conditions due to UN-RULY Children AGAIN!

Living in Weston Hills is a privilege for the children. Where else can they have 2 pools, a kid feature, playground, tennis & basketball court?

The community only asks that they be courteous to ALL other residents and visitors of the community, not to play around the clubhouse while waiting for the bus.

After the incident of the Bus having to stop in front of the gates, I will be attending the next SAC meeting to ask that all UN-RULY children be suspended from the bus and if they are unwilling to do that to move the Bus Stop back to Hwy 27.

If you have children please review with them the expectations the community has regarding courteous treatment to ALL Residents & Visitors of Weston Hills.

Thank you for your time, Weston Hills Board of Directors

Volunteers Needed To Re-Open Pools

Hello residents,

We hope everyone stayed safe during the storm and had no problems. It is quickly moving up the coast and away from our area.
We would like to re-open the pools tomorrow, but this will require volunteers to help out. If volunteers are unavailable it may take until Tuesday before we can get the pools opened.
If you can lend a hand, please call Irene at 609-705-5733 so she can get a head count. We are planning on meeting at 11 AM at the club house. The more volunteers we can get, the sooner the pools can be re-opened.
Thank you!

Hurricane Preparedness

[You can also download this info as a PDF HERE ]

Hurricane Preparedness

1. Move all furniture, including beds, away from windows. Electrical appliances should be off the floor, preferably in a closet.
2. Objects should be cleared from the floor and from the tops of desks and dressers.
3. Residents should place all valuables in a lockable closet or drawer, which should remain locked when the residents are not in the room.
4. Those who reside in facilities that have bathtubs are asked to clean the tub and fill it half full with water. In a hurricane there is the risk of loss of water supply. If this should happen, the water in the tubs will be needed for washing and flushing toilets. Fill smaller containers with water for drinking purposes. If additional drinking water is needed, it will be made available as soon as possible.
5. Close all windows tightly. Venetian blinds should be raised all the way to the top. Curtains or drapes should be closed.
6. Each person should provide his/her own flashlight in case of power failure. Do not use candles or other flame-type lighting under any circumstances. Use battery powered light only.
7. If you are instructed to go to a shelter, take blankets, a flashlight, clothing, prescription medications, and snack items, etc.

During a Hurricane

1. It is essential that everyone stay indoors throughout the entire hurricane. Do not leave your area until directed to do so by public safety or housing and dining personnel.
2. Stay away from dangers such as glass windows and unsecured furniture or objects.
3. Power failure is likely to occur during a hurricane; therefore, do not use elevators.
4. Do not attempt to travel between floors, but if you must, use the stairs.
5. Do not attempt to open windows or doors to see what is happening outside.
6. Telephone calls should be made only in case of emergency so that telephone lines will be clear when needed.

After a Hurricane

1. Check for injuries. Do not move a seriously injured person unless he or she is in immediate danger of further injuries. If you need emergency assistance, call 911.
2. Be aware of any structural damage around you. Always check for hazards such as:
a. Fire or fire hazards.
b. Damaged electrical wiring.
c. Downed or damaged utility lines. Stay away from downed lines, even if power appears to be off.
d. Fallen objects in closets and cabinets. Displaced objects may fall when you open the door.
e. Telephones. Make sure each phone is on its receiver. Telephones off the hook can tie up the telephone network.
f. Potentially harmful materials and/or medicines that may have spilled.

Survival Preparation at Home

It’s important to understand the need to be independently capable of survival in the aftermath of a hurricane, blackout or some other catastrophic event. After a major catastrophe, emergency services may not be immediately available, roads may be blocked, electricity and water may be cut off for a period of time, restaurants and stores may not be open and gas stations may be closed or out of gasoline. Life could suddenly become quite primitive.

The US Department of Homeland Security, the National Preparedness Coalition and the Red Cross each state that you and your family should prepare to survive independently for a period of at least 72 hours (3 full days) after a disaster. Hurricane Katrina was an excellent example of how true this can be. Katrina made landfall Monday morning, later in the day it became apparent that levees had been breached, which completely changed the government’s initial response plan. The end result was that relief supplies rolled into town on Friday morning, just beyond the 72 hour time-frame that we are told to prepare for.

Some questions you might ask yourself include:

– Can you and your family survive independently for a 72 hour period at any point in time without electricity, public utilities, filling stations, grocery and convenience stores or emergency services?

– How long would it take your family to evacuate if needed?

– Does your family know where to go or where to meet if you are separated and an evacuation order becomes necessary and cell phone technology has failed?

While it is for you to determine your own level of preparedness, this document has been developed to help you and your family, prepare for and survive a major event such as a hurricane or some other unforeseen event.


In an emergency, you may not have time to search, nor remember all the paperwork and records that you will either need or want in the aftermath of an event. It’s a good idea to gather your important paperwork and keep it in one central spot in a protective container that is easily retrieved when needed, preferably in your shelter area near your other emergency materials.

Important Records include, but may not be limited to the following:
– Birth certificates
– Passports
– Social Security Cards
– Life Insurance Information/Policies
– Marriage license
– Tax returns
– Mortgage and Car loan paperwork and payment book
– Information regarding your personal debt and assets
– Contact information for relatives and friends
– Email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses

Survival Preparation at Home

The following list of items is intended as a guide to help you plan, protect and provide for your family in the event of a storm or some other catastrophic event. Once assembled, you might choose to pack your emergency supplies in duffle bags and store them in a safe, easily retrievable place such as your shelter area or a closet near the entrance to your home. If packed in such a manner, your supplies will also be ready to carry out the door quickly should there be a need to evacuate.

Survival Preparation at Home


Once a storm has actually been forecasted to impact our area, there are some remaining steps you should take to ensure that your family is prepared. History has taught us to prepare in advance; grocery stores, gas stations, ice and ATM machines will be very popular at the last minute.

Obtain Cash – If there is a power failure, merchants may not be able to accept credit cards or debit cards for purchases. You may not be able to obtain cash if automatic teller machines have been affected by power outages or network problems.

Fill your gas tank – Gas stations may lose power, or may not receive a delivery, which can cause them to simply run out of gas. If you need to go anywhere after the hurricane, such as get to work, make a run for supplies, or even evacuate, you’ll at least have an acceptable range of travel distance available to you.

Store ice in your freezer – Prepare and consume any food stored in your freezer in the days leading up to a hurricane. If there is no electricity to keep it frozen or cook it, frozen food will spoil quickly in your freezer while the power is out. A freezer full of ice could help you keep some food and drink items cold in a cooler in should the power go out. Use Tupperware containers and ice cube trays to make ice and ice blocks, then store the ice and ice blocks in plastic freezer bags in your freezer. A common practice is to adjust the temperature in your freezer to its coldest setting in the 24 hours prior to a hurricane. This will help maintain the temperature a little longer should the power go out. Pack drinks in a cooler with ice ahead of when the storm is expected to occur. A good cooler will keep ice longer than your refrigerator or freezer if the power goes out and for a time, you will at least have something cold to drink.

Do your laundry – By doing all of your laundry in the days leading up to a storm, you will leave yourself in a better position after the storm. You may not have power after a storm to wash your clothes, but it’s likely that you will still have to go to work after the storm.

Obtain extra prescription medicine – If you are on prescription medication, it may be a good idea to get an extra supply in the days leading up to the hurricane. After the storm, your local drug store may be damaged or closed and unable to refill your prescription.

Take a photo inventory – Ensure that you have a photo or video record of your home and belongings in case the worst happens. It will help you greatly when working with your insurance company.
