Welcome to Hemingway Village on the Web

Hemingway Village is a collection of 414 homes within the city of Dublin, Ohio. The neighborhood was established on November 17, 1978 and is made up of five phases of development. We are surrounded by significant landmarks in Dublin such as; Coffman Park & The Dublin Recreation Center, Dublin Coffman High School and the Outdoor Pool. Our youngest children are zoned to attend Scottish Corners Elementary School, our middle-school aged children attend Karrer Middle School, and our high-school aged children attend Dublin Coffman High School.

We have an annual community garage sale, Fourth of July Float, and celebrate Christmas Eve with over 4400 luminaires lining the streets of Hemingway. This is a family-friendly neighborhood, within walking distance of most of the wonderful services that Dublin provides.

This web site is primarily intended for the residents of Hemingway Village. It was built for the community and is maintained by the Hemingway Village Civic Association.

"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another. "

--- Ernest Hemingway

  Hemingway Village Civic Association Easter Egg Hunt

HVAC held their Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday April 20th, in Stonefield Park. We had around 20 children from 13 families participate. The weather was terrific and the children had a great time searching the park from top to bottom. There were 8 special eggs that were hidden that awarded a special prize. A good time was had by all.

A special thanks goes out to the Gehle kids, Grace, Tucker and Jane, who came out early and helped the Easter Bunny hide over 200 eggs.

  Hemingway Village Civic Association 2014 Annual Membership Meeting

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

2014 Annual Membership Meeting - April 15, 2014

Carl Forbush, Treasurer of HVCA called the meeting to order at 7:00pm on April 15, 2014. Attendance surpassed the minimum requirement of 8 members, which allowed the proceedings to be official and all issues where voting would take place would be binding. There were 41 members in attendance.

The reading of minutes of the last meeting were waived as the only meeting held last year was the Spring meeting to elect officers and a year had passed.

The financial record was read. The starting balance from the period last year that records could be accessed was $763.25. Expenses for the fiscal year were $1607.73, income was $4246.71, with a net income of $2638.98, leaving us a balance of $3402.23 heading into the new fiscal year. The largest expenditure for the year was the purchase of candles and supplies for the Christmas Luminaries. the expense of the repair of the electricity at the Adventure Dr entrance estimated at $2500 was covered by the City of Dublin. We will be working with the City of Dublin to get the fence along Cofman repaired and painted when the second of the new houses are completed, late Spring, early Summer. We do not know yet what expenses if any will be incurred.

There were no reports from Committees.

Carl informed the members that he has completed and received the recertification of the Association with the State of Ohio for tax exemption status. He also filed himself as the person of notification for the Association with the State. All previous filings had expired (without notice) in the summer of 2013.

Moving on to new business, the call for election of new officers moved forward. There was no nominations submitted to the Officers before the meeting, so nominations from the floor were called. Carey Miller nominated Carl Forbush for President, the motion was seconded and the vote to the members on hand was passed. Carl Forbush nominated Carey Miller for Vice President, it was seconded, the members vote was passed. Being elected President, Carl Forbush nominated Colleen Walsh to replace him as Treasurer, the motion was seconded, and the vote of members was approved. Lastly Carl told the group that Laura Baker had offered to stay on as Secretary and he nominated her to retain the position, it was seconded and approved by the vote of the members.

Carl brought up the issue of the Association constitution that designated Trustees to actually run the Association. Doing research on the Trustee position it was found that the positions had not been filled for more than 12 years. Carl presented a rewritten Constitution that removed the Trustee positions and replaced them with the Officers. It was noted that it has been difficult to get members to step forward and volunteer for the four Officers positions, and we could not fill the 6 Trustee positions. It was opened to the floor for comments on the changes. There were two objections to the changes. Dialogue continued on the necessity of change, with a request that past Presidents fill these positions. Past President John Livorno expressed the same issues of not being able to fill the positions and that most past Presidents are not ready to do more when they step down. It was brought up that we could again make the changes to bring back Trustees if the activity level of the organization increased and it was deemed necessary. Carl explained that the main reason for the changes was to make the Constitution match the way the organization has been functioning for the past years. It was put to vote and passed with over the 2/3 majority needed for passage. The new Constitution will be placed on the website in the place of the old one.

Carl brought forward the committees that he would like to see formed, Landscape (Jim Weirtz), Social (still open), Community Representative (Ron Whaley), and Volunteer coordinator (still open), Web site (Steve Stidhem),  and Newsletter Editor. It was also mentioned that we need a Phase Coordinator for Phase 3 (Ernest Way, Great Novel Ct, Literary Lane, Pilar Ct, Adventure 5633-5704, and Tara Hill 5567-5687)  Social functions to consider for the upcoming year:

1. Easter egg hunt at Stonefield Park, Carl will get with Steve Stidhem and will make sure it happens ( he was reminded it was this Sunday)

2. We have supplied our name with Sunny 95 to hold a sponsored block party in Stonefield Park

3. Neighborhood Block parties are encouraged and with be supported by the Association

4. Neighborhood Garage sale. to be announced will be headed by Kris Seitz with assistance.

5. Christmas Luminaries will continue.

6. Independence Day float (John Livorno) Theme is "Shining Stars and Stripes"


Dues for 2013 were at $20 and with the financial health of the Association being good now, Carl recommended not raising the dues and maintaining them at $20. All in attendance agreed. We will continue to offer the payment of dues through the web site and Paypal. The minimal cost associated with Paypal is acceptable for the convenience of the members.

Mr. Weininger thanked Carl for taking the initiative to help re-establish the HVCA and all in attendance agreed.

The call to adjourn the meeting was presented at 7:55pm and approved.

Folks in attendance stayed to introduce themselves, talk and volunteer to help in numerous ways from block captains, to garage sales, Facebook improvements and more. It was a fantastic start new an all new and improved Civic Association!

  Hemingway Village Civic Association Amended Constitution for Hemingway Village Civic Association

Carl Forbush has taken the time to create an amended constitution for the Hemingway Village Civic Association.  He is specifically removing the need for a Trustee and Board.  The constitution was approved at the Annual Membership meeting on April 15th. The New Constitution has been posted and can be reached through the Hemingway info link. If there are any questions in regards to the changes you can reach out to Carl @ hemingwayvillage1@gmail.com.

  Hemingway Village Why aren't We Paying Our Dues?

swolz writes "Hello neighbors!  

Karl and I moved in last summer with our son Jon and we're very happy to be so close to his high school, the community center and fireworks in July!!! 

We apologize for not having an "open house" to meet/greet everyone but we've been knocking down walls, building up sunken floors and renovating like CRAZY!!!! We're still not done but when you do it yourself..it just goes slower...

We assumed our dues had been payed from the previous owner since we moved in half way through the year last year but that is not the case. 

We're late for paying this year but, I just paid online and it is so EASY.  If you don't want to go through Paypal..there is an option to just click "pay as guest" with a credit card and it will go through too.  

22% paid is a very sad statistic for our wonderful gem of a neighborhood.

Money is tight for all of us but please show some pride and bring those "PAID" statistics up... better late than never!

And stop by and visit us sometime when you get the chance.

Sue and Karl Wolz

  Dublin Off the Beaten Path in Dublin Treasure along the River

derek writes "
Our family always enjoys exploring central Ohio and we especially enjoy discovering the lesser-known hidden gems in and around Dublin.

Over the last couple years our family has enjoyed the hobby of letterboxing.  If you’re not familiar with letterboxing or its close cousin geo-caching, letterboxing is sort of like a treasure hunt where you search for hidden boxes in various locations all over the world.   The actual letterbox is typically a well-hidden waterproof box that contains an inkpad and a stamp as well as a stamp book.  Typically, you carry your own stamp book (a small notepad works well) and your own unique stamp.  When you find a letterbox, you put your stamp in their book and put their stamp in your book.  You can also write a small message in their book.  There are thousands of letterboxes hidden throughout the United States and happily there are many letterboxes hidden in Dublin and the surrounding area.  There are many websites that list locations of letterboxes in your area.  Letterboxing is a great way for a family to get outside and have fun together.
Given our enjoyment of this fun sport, I was pleasantly surprised last year when I found out that the Dublin Arts Council decided to combine secret public artworks with the hobby of letterboxing.  In 2007, the Dublin Arts Council started its "Riverboxes" project.  The Arts Council has commissioned 6 public artworks cleverly hidden along the banks of the Dublin Scioto River.  Near (or sometimes in) each artwork is a stamp and pad so you can record your discovery.   It’s a great way to explore the banks of the Scioto and learn some more about the rich history of this area. More information and clues to finding the Riverboxes can be found at the Dublin Art Council’s web site listed below.

Notes if you go:

  • Some places are muddy so don’t wear your Sunday best
  • Don’t let kids go by themselves.  More safety tips and be found at the sites listed.

  Dublin Dublin Social Host Law information

I got an email from Dublin's new Public Information Officer -- Megan Canavan -- concerning underage drinking.  Please contact her directly with any questions at mcanavan@dublin.oh.us.

Just a few facts about Social Host:
  • The Social Host Law applies to any person who furnishes alcohol to persons under 21.
  • Dublin Police may charge and the City may prosecute adults who “negligently” allow the possession or consumption of alcohol by underage people on their premises. Under the Dublin Code, a person acts “negligently” if because of a “substantial lapse from due care” a person “fails to perceive or avoid a risk that his conduct may cause a certain result or may be of a certain nature.”
  • The law still applies to places outside of your home including rented hotel rooms, banquet facilities, etc.
  • You are still liable for your child and underage consumption, even if the minor consumes alcohol in your home when you are not present or unknowingly.
  • Suppose an adult is upstairs in the bedroom while underage possession or consumption of alcohol is taking place downstairs. If Dublin Police are called to investigate, that adult can be charged with violating the law even if they claim they did not know criminal activity was taking place. This would be an example of negligence.
What should I do if my son/daughter’s underage friends bring alcohol into my home and start drinking?
  • Call the parents of the underage friend(s) in question
  • Call the police
We encourage anyone with information about a crime or a party where underage drinking is occurring to call our 24-hour Anonymous Tip Line at (614) 889-2618 or leave a tip online by visiting the website http://dublin.oh.us/police/crime/tip.
The Social Host PSA can be viewed at http://dublinohiocares.me/social-host.
Thank you and have a wonderful and safe holiday season,

  Hemingway Village Keep Hemingway Village Clean

As a dog owner, I know it can be tough sometimes to make sure you clean up after your pet.  It is, however, a common courtesy and also a Dublin Ordinance (http://www.dublin.oh.us/gov/code/#pet).  No one wants to clean up the mess left by your dog.

Please help keep our neighborhood clean and pick up after your dogs.  It's not hard to do.  If you're walking your dog in the dark, bring a flashlight.  Also, please do not put your dog's mess in just anyone's trash can if they happen to be out unless it's trash day and they haven't picked up the trash yet.  I'm sure you wouldn't want to pull a trash can into your garage if it had that in it.

If you see someone who doesn't clean up after their pet and you're not comfortable talking to them about it, let us know and one of the Association Officers will talk with them.  You can see the list of officers at http://www.hemingwayvillage.org/modules.php?name=Resident_Search&op=DBOfficerList.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
