The Treasure Lake Church is hosting a blood drive today (Tuesday, Dec. 1) at the church from 1-7 p.m.
The new data collection special committee is moving forward.
At the November TLPOA board of directors meeting, directors affirmed Bruce Davies as the chairman of the data collection special committee.
Committee members were also approved. They are: Evan Dittman, Ralph Winterich, Jim Hoover, Denny Parr, Mike Brosnan, Bill Marasco, David Distler and Tony Cavaiola.
Aqua has been working to replace water lines in the area of Caribbean Road heading toward Bimini Dam.
The work consists of a trench back filled and then covered with asphalt where a new water line has been placed in the roadway trench.
The leveling of the roadway trench leaves a lot to be desired at many spots along the way and these poor conditions now will only become worse as bad weather sets in.
We hope the left over potholes and uneven surfaces are repaired before winter weather arrives!
From all of the reports that we have heard the Thanksgiving Day dinner buffet at the Lakeview Lodge was a success.
We heard the food and the service was outstanding and the buffet was sold out.
Congratulations to all those involved in making the event a success.
Congratulations Matt Miller, featured in the Oct. 19 issue of Sports Illustrated.
Matt recently set a pass completion and yardage record playing quarterback for DuBois Area High School against Meadville.
This is quite an accomplishment and we are proud of him.
Matt is the son of Chris Miller, a Treasure Lake property owner.
Happy Thanksgiving From Everyone At Treasurelaketalk!
The Treasure Lake Church will hold a Thanksgiving Dinner at noon on Thursday.
We thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
The Treasure Lake Property Owners Association will hold its November regular board of directors business meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the Lakeview Lodge.
A few years ago, the TLPOA published the Treasure Chest newsletter and mailed it to all property owners.
That practice was discontinued due to the cost and the fact that many property owners threw the newsletter away in the post office.
It was decided to email the newsletter to property owners or they could subscribe for a nominal fee and a newsletter would be mailed to them.
Recently, a stack of newsletter was found in a bank in DuBois available for the general public.
These newsletter are full color which is not cheap to produce.
It is interesting that we are distributing the Treasure Lake newsletter to businesses in town like banks.
Is the newsletter also available at the DuBois Chamber Office and area real estate offices?
Is this a good way to spend our money?
One of our readers submitted the following post regarding speeding.
“These days a driver that drives within the posted speed limits is the exception rather than the rule. But those who drive 15, 20 and 30 plus mph over the limit have complete disregard for the safety of all of us, especially our children and those of us who run and walk in this beautiful community. All of which begs the questions: Who is responsible our traffic regulations? And finally, how often is it being done?”
At Monday’s TLPOA work session, Steve Tuller, board president opened the meeting “with a moment of silence for the people who lost their lives and were injured in the recent tragedy in Paris, France.”
Folks commented that it was thoughtful and the right thing to do.
Sometimes people forget that Treasure Lake is part of the world around us and we are not an island.
We are disappointed that some properties made it through another year without being cleaned up or maintained.
The property at the main intersection looks as bad now as it did in the spring when the snow melted.
There are many properties in Section 19 of Cayman Landing where the trailers have been removed and old porches or decks have been left behind.
It has been this way for some time and was not cleaned up this year.
We don’t understand how some property owners are able to neglect or walk away from their properties leaving a mess behind.
If the property owner does not clean up their property after notification from property control the Board of Directors should order the clean-up by a contrator or our maintenance department and charge the offending property owner!
TLPOA management and the Property Control Committee have been discussing the issue of permanent sites at Cayman Landing campground and the UDI (Undivided Interests).
In the Declaration of Restrictions it states that each lot is to be only occupied for a 90 day period, but it does not state how long the individuals are required to be off their site.
The UDI owners are allowed to be on their sites for 30 days and must be completely off (camper included) for a minimum of five days. It has been discussed that the permanent sites may be there for 90 days, but must vacate for a minimum of five days (camper not included).
We want to know who is going to watch everyone in the campground and keep track of when they are in their camper and when they are not in their camper.
Sounds to us like a very tedious job!
The TLPOA board of directors will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the Lakeview Lodge. The November work session will follow.
