                   LDHA MONTHLY MEETING MINUTES FROM: JUNE 9TH, 2003

        1. Annual meeting called to order by Marlin Kleckner at 7:30pm (Clubhouse).
        2. Casey Jones gave the association an update regarding the roads that will be re-surfaced this year in our
           county. There will be 18 ½ miles re-surfaced in the county, 2.6 miles in Gun Plain and 1 mile of Lake
           Doster will be re-surfaced. Casey also informed the association that Deer Run will be permanently
           closed at the Doster Road intersection. Casey also spoke of his efforts to link a severe weather alert to
           the national weather service.
        3. Carol Kellogg requested members at the meeting to sign out the new phone directories and pass them
           out to the people on their street. If you have paid your dues and do not have a new blueberry directory
           please contact Carol Kellogg 664 6420 or Nancy Watson 685-5768.
        4. Treasurer’s report approved.
        5. Social, Tom Raich and Diane Burrows: 4th of July is next party. Our social committee handed out a
           sign up sheet for volunteers for the Fourth of July party, but by the end of the evening there were very
           few who signed up to volunteer. The fourth party is always great fun but it takes community help to
           make it a success. Please call Tom Raich 685-0696 or Diane Burrows 664-3593 and offer to help.
        6. Maintenance, Ray Dertz: Rafts are in the water and ready for fun. Ray still has some fertilizer if
           anyone is still in need.
June 2003                                                                                           Page 1
        7. Water Quality report: Kevin Koch informed the association of the multiple benefits of having the
            “Lake Doster Management Plan Report” done regarding Lake Doster. Kevin passed out a handout he
            prepared, fielded questions and reminded people that one of the most important things lake front
            owners can do is to create a “buffer zone” between the yard and the lake. For more information or a
            copy of the “Lake Doster Management Plan Report” please contact Kevin at 664-6096.
        8. Future Lake Management: At a LDHOA meeting a several months ago The Lake Doster Development
            Company expressed an interest in relinquishing management of the lake. This fact spurred the Home
            Owners Association to conduct an initial investigation into the possibility of interested homeowners
            coming together to form an entity to manage the lake. Brian Mullally addressed the association with
            the progress so far and the direction that things need to go before there is a possibility of the
            homeowners managing the lake. Joe Langkamp was at the meeting and verified that he will be
            cooperative in turning over lake management to the homeowners if they can get an organization
            together that can in fact manage the lake.
        9. Homes: 395 homes, 9 for sale.
        10. New business:
