2019 was a significant and work-intensive year for ABI, the Board of Directors and many volunteers. The new website, launched in late 2018 generated record dues payments and donations. It engaged our community and fostered a tremendous increase in website interactions. 

The website project came about after years of popular demand for online payments as well as a better forum for ABI information. The website was ABI's largest project of the year. We ask the community to continue to support the new website and the efforts of our Board, volunteers and terrific ABI Registrar, who work hard and long hours to serve the community. 

ABI continues to improve and tweak the website. We are always looking for ways to enhance it. Please  contact us at abiboard@ardenonthesevern.com with any suggestions you may have. 


2019 saw the return of three very popular and successful neighborhood gatherings:

    • Spring Cleanup & Appreciation Party
    • Arden Bull Roast Party
    • Wine, Swine & Brie Party

ABI continued to oversee the maintenance of Arden's beaches, boat ramps and several common properties. Many repairs and improvements were made including repairing the playground on Beach 1 and professionally removing over a dozen trees that were in danger of falling onto properties adjacent to ABI. One of ABI's top concerns is keeping our surroundings and properties safe. 

We are ready for 2020. ABI's 2020 Budget has been approved and we are acting upon it. It looks to be another year full of promise and much good will. Thank you for your support!
