Letter from the President
Winter has passed, at least as far as the calendar states, and the ice is gone from our beautiful lake.
We are beginning to see some of our summer residents returning from down south, and many robins have been sighted all around. Those who stayed here this winter survived a Polar Vortex!
Winter was not easy on some of our residents. Ann Robbins lost her mother in January, and our good friend and Lane Director, Ralph Blust, is currently at Millers in Syracuse.
As in past years, your association will be sponsoring the roadside cleanup (April), then the neighborhood garage sales (May), followed by our annual meeting at Quaker Haven, the popular chicken barbeque and golf event all taking place in June.
The lake has been stocked with walleye fingerlings, and the fish will be harvest size at 16 inches.
The new directories will be done soon, and your Lane Directors will be distributing them. We ask that you look these over and let us know if any corrections are needed.
We look forward to a safe and delightful summer! See you on the lake!
Chip Wallstead, President
