The annual meeting of the Wellington Greens Homes Association was held on Sunday, October 28, 2018, at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 8320 South Street at 2:00 p.m.  Steve Imes and Dick Vautravers were re-elected to their Board positions.  The Board will meet on November 20, 2018 to elect officers for the new year.  Many thanks to Jim Wharry and Allan Barber for agreeing to run for the Board.

The Board is looking for Committee volunteers to serve on the Finance, Architectural, Landscape, Long-Range Planning, Golf, Concrete and Social Committee.  This is a great way to learn more about our community and meet other residents.  See the November newsletter for more details.




Tom “TJ” Johnson and Jim Davidson were reelected to new three years terms on the Board of Directors.  The Committee Chairs reported on the work their respective committees had accomplished in the last year.  At the November 21, 2017 Board of Directors meeting, Paul Canny submitted his resignation from the Board for personal reasons.  The Board expressed their gratitude for all that Paul had done this past year and presented him with plaque.  The Board appointed resident Bill Rice of Chatham Park to serve the remainder of Paul’s term.  TJ Johnson lost his battle with cancer early this year.  The Board subsequently reappointed Paul Canny to fill TJ’s unexpired term.  The current board and positions are shown under the Board of Directors tab on this site.

Celebration of Wellington 50th birthday! 

Wellington Greens residents attend an afternoon of celebration for the 50th birthday of our Home Owners Association.  The celebration was held on Sunday, September 17, at the clubhouse. Vintage Corvettes and Mustangs were on display. The Lincoln Continental Drifters, a barber shop quartet roamed through the crowd entertaining with barber shop music.  A pictorial display of Wellington Green’s history and drawings were in the clubhouse.  There was a DJ playing 1960’s music.  Everyone enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream.  Ed Zimmer from Lincoln’s Planning and Preservation Department and long-time Wellington resident Dottie Shapiro shared insights about Wellington Greens history.
Here are some pictures from the event:  (Other pictures can be seen under the “pictures” tab above.)


SHORT HISTORY: Wellington Greens was built between 1968 and 1974.  It consist of 277 units which are home to 350 to 400 residents.  There are twenty named courts which are typical of neighborhoods everywhere, but individual in nature.  The grounds of Wellington Greens, including its 9 hole grass greens, par three hole golf course dazzles visitors with its wide assortment of mature trees and shrubs that are wonderfully maintained by a dedicated grounds staff.  Townhouse owners only have to care for their small patios, the crew takes care of the rest. The population tends to be older, but there are working people, families with school-age children, singles and couples.  Some neighbors gather for weekly card games at the clubhouse.  The clubhouse is available to the residents for showers, parties, or most any kind of gatherings. The community is still thriving after 46 years.


A number of residents have made changes to their units without permission from the Architectural Committee or the Board and have had to redo it to conform to the by-laws and covenants.  Do not shingle or change trim or siding color without contacting the Architectural Committee or a Board member located under the “contact us” drop down.  In most cases, you will be granted permission, but the covenants and by-laws that you were given when you purchased your unit explicitly state the style of roof and the colors of trim and siding.  Also, according to the covenants and by-laws, you are not permitted to plant trees or add anything to the common areas.
