A new initiative in Oak Park is to replace the old playground equipment. Rick Baldwin was able to arrange for a Wake County elementary school to donate used playground equipment. Thanks go to Rick for his efforts! Kevin and Rick are asking for volunteers to join them on the trip to Raleigh to pick up the equipment, which is now scheduled for 9:00 AM on Thursday, February 14 (volunteers should meet at the Hensley garage at 8:30 AM). A few cordless tools will also be needed to remove fasteners. Please contact Kevin Hensley or Rick Baldwin if you can help.

Notice to website users: The Merifield Acres website has been updated to contain most of the last 41 annual meeting minutes for historical and research purposes. Annual meeting minutes now go back through the first one on September 19, 1977, held in Mary Fran Lewis' home. Some early historical founding letters and documents have been added for those interested. Newer features include a more powerful in-page PDF reader which will allow you to easily scroll through PDF documents and will allow you to download them. The menu structure is being changed in order to make then website navigation more intuitive. Feel free to explore the menus, and to offer suggestions if there are any features or content you would like to see.
Merifield Acres encompasses some one-thousand acres on the peninsula formed by Buggs Island Lake (Kerr Reservoir) and Grassy Creek. There are some 12.5 miles of roads, 719 platted lots, and about 300 dwellings, a slight majority of which are full-time residences. Covenants that mandate an annual assessment per lot govern most of these lots. Merifield Acres lies completely within the confines of Mecklenburg County and is five miles outside the town of Clarksville.
