Our Village has consistently had concerns related to the viability and success of the golf course as our partner and neighbor.
We have been in discussion with the owners of the golf course (CBIGG/CBON), for several months, expressing our concerns about the future of the operation.
Accordingly, non-exclusive NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) were executed in order to continue a dialogue on various scenarios and alternatives in order to formulate the best course of action that would benefit the Village and protect the interests of the membership in the community.
At this juncture, no commitments have been made, no decisions have been made, no agreements have been executed and — regardless of the rumors or representations being made by others — no purchase has occurred.
The Executive Board members are obligated to uphold the confidentiality requirements of the NDA; when the time comes that they are in a position to provide you with details, a Town Hall event will be scheduled quickly.
In the interim, it should be noted that any material changes in the Village’s operation requires consideration by the members.

In consideration of the recent health concerns related to COVID-19, and following the current best practices in place, we are temporarily closing the Clubhouse facilities to residents as of Monday March 16, 2020; our Business Office and Facilities Department will remain operational during this period.
We advise residents to direct your inquiries to OV staff members via telephone or email to restrict physical contact as a precautionary measure:
Business Office: (203) 377-5313 or email@example.com
Maintenance Office: (203) 375-8853 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We realize that this significant inconvenience is problematic for many of our Villagers. However, we believe that it’s best to err on the side of caution, especially during this time period.
We want to reiterate that if you have concerns of any specific nature, albeit your own health worries or the anxiety of possible exposure, you should follow the recommendations issued by the Center for Disease Control.
We will continue to monitor the circumstances related to this situation and will advise you accordingly as information becomes available.
We hope that this measure will be short-lived so that we can return to our standard operations in the Village.
In the interim, we also ask that you continue to take the necessary precautions and obtain information that is currently provided by local, state and federal agencies.
We have included some helpful links below.

The library at NCB houses more than novels, biographies, puzzles and paperbacks. It is the location of the stately Oronoque Village “In Tribute” Book, which sits on a pedestal against the far right wall. The book has a solemn purpose: it recognizes treasured residents who have passed away.
The In Tribute Book was initiated in 2012 by the Memorial Plaque Committee, consisting of Mel Holson, Linda Libertino, Jim Manzolli, Barbara Minoff, Loretta Sills and John Staley. This ad hoc committee was charged with creating a way in which departed residents can be publicly honored by their loved ones.
Inclusion in the In Tribute Book requires a contribution of $250 or more to Oronoque Village. Contributors are allowed one page in the book to include photos and/or text honoring their deceased loved ones.
For more information on the In Tribute Book, please email email@example.com or call the Business Office at 203-377-5313, ext. 3.
Currently, the book recognizes:
Laura (Schachter) Diamond
