President’s Comments April 2017 Board Meeting
I want to thank Jim Swartz for filling in for me tonight. I have some out-of-state family commitments today.
As you already notice, we are having our April Board Meeting and subsequent Board Meetings at the Clubhouse. Following these meetings will be a social reception for Members the Board. The Board is hoping that this will promote a sense of Community. This is to be an opportunity for the Membership to meet other Members and the Board. Sorry I am missing the first one.
As a reminder, there were only two Candidates for the two open Board Seats. According to the Bylaws, when the number of candidates equal or are less than the number of open Seats, the Board can suspend the Election by confirming the candidates. We confirmed the candidates at the March Board Meeting. The two new Board Members for the 2017 to 2020 period are Jim Swartz and Ron Morris.
Our new business Office is complete and at the old location. The new Office is in use. A special thanks to Dan Mullins, our Association Operations Manager, and Jim Swartz, our Vice President of the Board for navigating the construction process. And a further thanks to Dan and Jim along with our office staff, Pat Sowry and Jen Addair, and our Maintenance staff for the transition back to Route 6.
The Annual Meeting will be held on April 29, 2017, 1pm right here at the Clubhouse. Following the meeting will be a social with other Members and the Board, and then a tour of the new Office for those making the trip to Route 6.
The Board cancelled out of the joint Village-Association meeting in March for what turned out to be a record snow for the area. We will reschedule after the Board has an opportunity to agree upon potential dates which will be provide to the Village. In addition the Board will address the Mayor’s suggestion that we have a few representatives rather than the entire Board.
Volunteerism: I want to thank all the Volunteers that it took to put on several activities over the past several weeks. The Polar Bear Plunge, Dog Training, Winter Fest, Friends and Neighbors Dinner, Shores Hold ém, Quilting, and the Fishing Club. If I missed any I apologize to that group. Hopefully, these activities will continue to increase and our Members will create and/or find activities that interest them. It is no small task to put on these events and the Board is greatly appreciative of these events for the development of our Community.
