									          TALK OF THE LAKES

                                  LETTER FROM THE PRESIdENT

        Dear Residents:
                                             Plant Replacement

        The Board agreed to change shrub and bush replacement from twice each year to once,
      such that replacement will only be done in the fall. Often times, the shrubs or bushes replaced
      in the spring did not survive. Their replacement, during the fall season, is more productive
      due to the amount of rain and snow that they receive. The change is expected to substantially
      reduce our annual cost of such replacement. Your patience and understanding in this matter is
      appreciated, and will be of benefit to everyone.

                                       Clubhouse Security Concerns

        As of the writing of this article, the trees taken from the Billiard Room have not been returned.
      We are still hopeful that they will be. In the meantime, there are now two weights (30 lb. and
      35 lb.) missing from the Fitness Room. Again, these properties belong to all residents for their
      use, benefit and enjoyment.
        Many have expressed strong concerns against the installation of cameras in common areas,
      and for ten years we’ve avoided using them; however, things have changed. We’ve had to
      lock cabinets to secure food and beverages, and we’re now experiencing accessories and
      equipment being removed from the clubhouse (without permission).
        Other Associations have been able to resolve such problems by placing cameras at all
      entrances. Buildings and Grounds has now been asked to research possible solutions and to
      make recommendations to the Board. Your ideas are welcome, as well.

                                      Clubhouse Decorating Update

        The installation of the new floors, and painting of interior walls in the clubhouse is now complete.
      With few exceptions, comments about the decorations thus far have been extremely positive.
      The Decorating Committee is still working with the decorator to determine what accessories will
      go on walls and shelves, as well as, how best to display trophies, plaques, awards, etc. By the
      time this article of the Talk of the Lakes is distributed, the cloth stackable chairs and Acoustic
      Panels in the main room will have been professionally cleaned. The committee and decorator
      are in the process of researching fabric and cost to reupholster and/or refinish other chairs and
      seating within the clubhouse.
        Special Projects is still researching options for the upgrading of the locker rooms. Important
      considerations (among others) include retrenching the floors for better drainage, replacement
      of broken and/or rusted faucets, and repair or replacement of rusted lockers.
        A special thank you to the Decorating Committee (Arlene Bennett, Noreen Coyan, Cheryl
      Mueller) CK Designs, and the Special Projects Committee, for all of their detailed research and
      efforts to assure that our clubhouse remains safe, beautiful and welcoming.
