A Homeowner Association is the cornerstone of a community. It brings continuity and order to the community, it preserves the architectural integrity and it maintains the common elements.
The Association should promote the concept of "community" and protect the neighborhood's property value. It makes available recreational and other facilities that might not otherwise be affordable or available to homeowners on an individual basis.
The Association should:
Operating a Homeowner Association carries with it many of the very same duties and responsibilities as overseeing any other business. Serving as a Board member is a valuable and rewarding experience that should be undertaken by those who see it as an opportunity to serve their fellow neighbors while protecting and enhancing the assets of the community. It is a serious business, but also a task worth doing well in order to safeguard the investment of all.

My husband, Nick, and I moved to Augusta Shores in 2004. We had looked all over, but couldn't find the home we wanted. I wanted "more house" in the suburbs, and Nick wanted "more land" away from the suburbs, and Augusta Shores was our compromise. We hadn't consider Augusta initially because it seemed so far from everything. Now it doesn't seem so far at all, and I can't imagine living anyplace else!
I worked for 29 years in the mortgage industry before moving into my current position writing credit policy for the global bank. Luckily we have great internet since I work from home full time!
My wife, Rebecca, and I moved to Augusta Shores in 2014 from St. Peters, MO. I worked for McDonnell Douglas for 13 years responsible all of their Business Applications. I'm currently a Client Partner Exec at IBM where I've worked for 28 years. Some of the jobs have been global in span (disaster recovery/resilience work after 9/11...IBM paid me to see the world...hence the Wombat in Tazmania) and I've spent most of my career managing large (Billion $) IT outsourcing contracts for companies of all sorts like Baxter Pharma, Disney, Ameriprise Financial, Hertz, Union Pacific, Bank 1, Quest, and Kaiser Permanente to name a few. My current client is Bank of America where we are moving them to Cloud. I have three degrees in business and IT from Wash U and SIUE. And I'm a Marine Corps vet. specialized things that go boom. Rebecca (the more caring side of this duo) works part time caring for the elderly (in home). She's done this for years and usually works with elderly women enabling them to delay moving out of their home. She's very good at it and has brought happiness to many in their last years. We have 3 sons, 6 grandkids and 3 great-grandkids. We love living here with the beautiful countryside and wonderful neighbors.
Job transfer brought my husband John & me to Missouri and Augusta Shores in 2006. However, it is COMMUNITY that has kept us here after retirement which says a great deal since our two daughters, son-in-law and grandson live in Oregon. My education and career were in the field of Human Resource Management; a likely contributor to the areas I have chosen to be most involved: a member of Health, Wellness, & Safety Committee, book club, bunko, stretch, and pickle-ball. John and I enjoy the many friendships that come with being part of an active/caring community. We are grateful to those who have and now serve as Board Members, on one of AS many committees, or in any capacity that safeguards our investment while strengthening community and relationships.
It seems like it was just yesterday when my family moved to Augusta Shores 16 years ago in January, 2005....
I was raised in Ferguson and Florissant and received an education in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at St. Louis University and Mizzou, with the bulk of my career spent in Pharmaceutical and Medical Device manufacturing and management roles. My wife Nancy and I have a blended family (hers, mine and ours) of two sons and a daughter, and have recently retired to enjoy time with our two grandchildren, traveling, and visiting with our Augusta Shores neighbors and friends.
I feel extremely blessed to live in this beautiful neighborhood and contribute to it as a Board of Directors member.
I have spent my entire life in the St. Louis area. Once we discovered Augusta Shores, we felt our hopes and dreams were within reach. We moved into our new home in November, 2017. Linda and I love Augusta Shores!...and we feel blessed to live in such a wonderful Subdivision with great neighbors and friends.
My work career ended in 2014 due to a unexpected diagnosis of Leukemia (ALL). After 33 months of chemo, I opted to retire rather than return to work. When working, I was in the Real Estate world, first as a Commercial Real Estate Analyst and the last half of my career as a Residential Real Estate Appraiser. We also "flipped" houses when the opportunities were too good to pass up.
Passions in my life include my Family (both immediate and extended), sharing my day with friends, the stock market, real estate, sports, fantasy baseball and football (30+ years) and of course Bar-B-Que! I belong to the St. Louis Bar-B-Que Society as a judge and have enjoyed some tremendous Bar-B-Que over the years!
We have one son (Adam) who lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Jess. Linda and I are very excited about becoming Grandparents for the first time in late December! Our trips to Austin always include some great Bar-B-Que, and now, a little granddaughter!
My wife Kathy and I moved to Augusta Shores 17 years ago in 2004, and absolutely LOVE it! In addition to the scenery and facilities, it’s a great place to get involved. I am involved in volunteer activities for the Augusta Shores development, our local church, fire department, and MODOT! Never thought I’d be so busy in retirement...
Hello friends and neighbors! My name is Maria and my husband, Wolfgang, and I have lived in Augusta Shores for 6 years. We are the proud owners of a long haired, very spoiled Dachshund named Hazel! I have volunteered to be the Board Secretary for 3+ years. I enjoy working with the AS Board of Directors to strive to keep our beautiful neighborhood the best place to live.
