We've gone away!

That's right, after almost fourteen years of running the first and only independent website dedicated to the Riverbend Community I've pulled the plug. Today is February 14, 2014.

Why? Simply put, I've moved on. My family and I have joined the throngs leaving Garden State to find happiness elsewhere.

I want to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the years. Some of you have been more active with the site than others, certainly, but the email and the logs are more than enough to tell the story of a successful venture. With few exceptions, the website saw healthy traffic every single day!

When the Riverbend Board announced their official website on August 26, 2010 - more than ten years after mine - I figured the days would be numbered. That turned out not to be the case as their site floundered. I even consulted with the Board a bit - pro bono, of course - but they failed to take action.

In December 2013, after taking the decision to shut down, I emailed Board President Ron Senchesak. I offered the website, in its entirety, along with the assistance to port it to the host of their choice, domain registration if necessary, plus administrative training and handholding. Ron responded that he would bring the proposal to the Board and make a decision shortly. By mid-February and I'd heard nothing, which I interpreted as the Board's rejection of my offer.

If you disagree with the Board's apparent decision through inaction, you may wish to bring your thoughts to their attention through Executive Property Management, 4-08 Towne Center Drive, North Brunswick, New Jersey 08902. Or phone (732) 821-3224.

Let's take a look at some of the highlights of the site over the years.

It's been an excellent run!
Thank you all for your support over the site's nearly 14 year history!
