Join the POENB

Our 2020 POENB Membership Drive is underway! 

The POENB Board is grateful to all of the 245 households who joined our Association in 2019. We thank you for your past membership and support, and we strongly hope that we can welcome your household back as a member in 2020.

As you may know, we are working to expand membership in our Association as we embark on a much-needed project to rebuild the failing 40-year-old Valley Grove Bulkhead. Over the past two years, we have been raising money through generous contributions from our POENB donors; fundraising events; increasing our membership rolls; and keeping operational costs low. Thanks to these tremendous community efforts, POENB has set aside $70,000 towards the Valley Grove Bulkhead Reconstruction.

However, we must continue our efforts in 2020 in order to fund this much-needed reconstruction project. Please join POENB today and help us meet our goal! The Valley Grove Bulkhead is a critical piece of our community infrastructure which not only protects the western shoreline of Eaton’s Neck, but also home and property values in our area. By supporting POENB in 2020, you will make a huge difference for our Association not only this year, but for years to come.

By renewing your POENB membership today, your household will enjoy the following benefits through March 31st, 2021:
  • Access to our members-only beaches at Price’s Bend and Valley Grove;
  • Free beach storage for one small watercraft;
  • Entry to POENB-sponsored events, including Parti Gras, Casino Night, Family Campout, Friday Night Grillin’, Family Movie Nights and more; and
  • Special members-only discounts from participating area merchants (POENB Buyer Discounts).
Additionally, every family that joins our Association helps to strengthen POENB’s voice on important issues in our community, including the reconstruction of the seawall on Asharoken Avenue, as well as sand replenishment along the western shoreline of Eaton’s Neck.

The POENB Board has worked hard over the past year to ensure that our Association properties are well-maintained and protected from liability; that we are responsive to member concerns regarding quality-of-life issues, particularly near our beaches; that our Board communicates regularly and effectively with membership; and that we promote a sense of community through fun, community-focused events throughout the year.

Now, POENB needs your help to continue its work for this community. Join POENB by March 31st, and you will receive an early bird discount (see link to membership form below). 

As you fill out your form, please take a look at the “Volunteer” section. POENB needs your time, talents, and voice as we work to improve and strengthen this community. We hope that each of our members will find some way to donate this year – and in the process, make our community a better place for all!
