Well, winter is right around the corner, the pond is lowered, and most of you have taken in your docks. Soon we'll be
seeing the ice fishermen braving the cold. As for myself, I will be watching them pulling their catch out of the water while I sit comfortably in my living room with a cup of hot coffee in my hand.
The board of directors has been meeting regularly and we have been kept apprised of the condition of the dam and the
periodic inspections supervised and required by DEM. I am proud to say the dam is in great shape and that DEM is grateful for our cooperation and compliance. But, this comes with a price ... and to the
majority of you who have paid your annual assessments, we extend a sincere THANK YOU. Also on our agenda has been the terrible road conditions in the Sunrise Terrace area. We have approved some funds to
be allocated to grade some of the roads in that area. We are also planning to meet with the Department of Public Works to see what more can be done. These funds come from our budget ... which is fiscally
sound because of those that pay their assessments. I urge all of you to contribute when the invoices arrive at the end of December.
We are aware that some of our neighbors have had some financial difficulties and that some have even lost their
homes. If you are in a difficult situation and cannot pay, please contact me or your local director so that we can work with you (as we have with others in the past). If you would like to know more about
where your assessments go, please contact me.
Have a safe holiday season and stay warm! May 2014 be a great year ... we'll see you around the pond next Spring.
