The Haunted Hills 5k will take place on Sat 10/23 from 8 to 10 am 👻 This is not a timed race, but we must ask that all participants cross the "finish line" by 10 am, so please plan accordingly. The race will start & end at the KP Clubhouse parking lot. Race map will be sent in a future email. This 5k will also feature a costume contest! So dress up, get ghouly and show off 🤡 Winners will receive a prize!
Charity: We will be collecting non-perishable goods at the race to benefit the House of the Harvest food bank. Please bring items to the table set up in the Clubhouse parking lot even if you don't plan to participate in the race.
The Kelly Plantation Pumpkin Carving Contest will be held on Sat 10/23. Resident voting will take place from 6 to 8 pm 🎃 This event will feature pumpkins carved by residents! There will be an adult category (High School and up) and a Children's category (Middle School and below). A winner will be awarded from each category based on votes. To enter, simply carve a pumpkin at your home and then bring it down to the Clubhouse by 5:30 pm on the 23rd. Please note that if it is to be illuminated you'll need to bring that with you as well. We are looking forward to seeing your creativity!
Charity: we will have a large box available for Toys4Tots donations at the Clubhouse during the pumpkin carving contest. If you do choose to participate, please be sure to donate only new unwrapped items. Please note that they do not accept toys that look like realistic weapons or toys that contain food.
Book Club will be Thursday, October 28th from 7 to 9 pm at the KP Clubhouse. Join other bibliophiles as we discuss the month's reading selection, munch on snacks and enjoy time together. This month's selection is Murder at the Book Club by Betsy Reavley. Check out the other book club monthly selections on our new book club page.
There has been some issues with the new recycling schedule. As far as we now know all of Kelly Plantation except Huntsmen Lane will be the last Friday of the month. Huntsmen Lane will be the second Friday of the month. Hopefully there will be no more confusion with RANA.
We now have a home service referral page for our residents. This is based on Kelly Plantation neighbors recommendations. Any inputs for the list can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on the Kelly's List post on the KP facebook page. Thanks!

We hope everyone is beginning to enjoy their summer! We are definitely in a better place than last year! The Covenants Enforcement Committee (CEC) would like to share a few reminders.
Below are some current issues we are seeing in the neighborhood, which need to be addressed:
-LANDSCAPING: The Covenants Committee understands that finding help right now for yard
work is difficult. Companies are having a hard time finding help or they are booked for
weeks out. However, in the meantime, yards and front beds must be kept to the KPHOA
Architectural and Covenants Guidelines. This mean yards must be mowed regularly and
flower beds and landscaping around the house must be trimmed and devoid of weeds. The
Covenants Committee will begin sending reminders for yards that have excessive weeds in
the beds or overgrown bushes. Please take a look at your yard to avoid receiving a notice.
-FISHING: Fishing as always is for “RESIDENTS ONLY” and “CATCH AND RELEASE”.
Questions have been raised about “hours” for fishing at the ponds. The HOA does not have
hours for fishing at the ponds. As long as you are being respectful to the area, wildlife, and
the homes around the ponds, you may fish at any time.
- SAFETY REMINDER: Now that we are in summer, we have a lot of children enjoying playing
outside with friends and riding their bikes through the neighborhood. We have a great
neighborhood for children to play. SO, PLEASE ADHERE TO THE SPEEDLIMIT! THE
SPEEDLIMIT FOR KELLY PLANTATION IS 25MPH. THERE IS NO REASON ANYONE NEEDS TO
DRIVE FASTER THAN THE POSTED SPEEDLIMIT. LET’S KEEP OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SAFE
FOR CHILDREN TO PLAY!
-GUIDELINES: Did you know we have a website? Everything you want to know about
Covenants is located at the following address: https://kellyplantationhoa.net
If you have any questions, please email the Covenants Committee at email@example.com if you are interested.
OOOPS! This letter is a friendly reminder that the areas described below need immediate attention in the neighborhood:
1. Leaves that have collected on the curb in front of your home need to raked, bagged and stored out of sight until the next bulk pick-up!
2. Please, when you are walking your dog, be courteous and clean up the messes left
behind! No one wants to step in dog poop when walking on the sidewalks or have to
clean poop out of their yard when they do not own a dog.
3. Parking is not allowed on the streets as a permanent means of parking. Please park in your driveway!
The CEC understands that at times things can get away from us. The CEC realizes that our days and weeks are busy, and when the weekend comes around, we want to rest. That being said, we really need every homeowner to do their part to keep Kelly Planation a beautiful and desirable place to live. To that end, please adhere to addressing the issues listed above if they apply to you. The CEC will begin sending notices in the next couple of weeks for these covenant’s infractions. Should you have any questions, please contact the CEC at: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your address. We want to help---we live here too! Thank you for your support and timely action in these matters.
We have recently seen an increase in the clubhouse parking lot being used as overflow parking for residents and their guests.
Please be reminded that clubhouse parking is for usage of the pool during pool season or the tennis courts and ponds and clubhouse rentals only.
Residents may request usage of the clubhouse parking lot for overflow parking from the Board for special events and requests will be granted on a case by case basis and when the clubhouse is not rented for a private event. Violators will be towed at owners expense.
If your student attends Sparkman High School and is unable to park at the school parking lot, they may
park in the clubhouse parking lot with a KPHOA Parking pass. Please contact, Melinda Dellert if your
student needs a pass. You can reach her at the KPHOA Board email (Attention Melinda Dellert),
Your attention and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Have you seen a lost pup or kitty in the neighborhood? Use our pet directory for a quick reference to see how to get them home! If you would like to register your pet please email email@example.com with your pet's name, a brief description of your pet and contact info.
This time of year we would normally be meeting at the clubhouse for our annual KPHOA Board meeting. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we cannot meet as a group.
These are the slides that we would have presented this year (see KPHOA Annual Meeting Presentation_2020 for website file) minus the financial slides which are available upon request. Please feel free to email the Board with any questions and/or concerns that you may have.
We hope we will be back together as a group soon!
