Christmas is coming.

One sure sign is the Christmas tree in the gazebo at the Lakeview Lodge and marina area.

The Community Improvement Club has been busy again.

Every year they put the tree in the gazebo and decorate it.

This is just one of the many projects the club does for the community.

We are fortunate to have these dedicated volunteers in Treasure Lake.

We recently read about TLPOA Director Joe Krill in reports from TLPOA meetings.

We are pleased to see Krill taking an active role in the TLPOA meetings.

He brings ideas, questions and valid points for discussion.

Today, as in the past, there are directors who never bring anything to the board table, never question finances or anything else for that matter and never contribute anything to meetings.

They have basically been a zero.

We do not understand why they wanted to serve on the board of directors because they never really represent property owners.

Krill was seated on the board in July and we recognize him for his efforts.

At the November TLPOA meeting, Mimi Goodman was introduced. She is in charge of the taverns and is working with Skyline Ventures (a restaurant consultant to the TLPOA) on food service improvements at the 19th Hole and Duffers Tavern.

Mimi described plans for changes at the taverns that include the menu.

She said Duffers Tavern will be open through the winter, beginning Nov. 28.

At the worksession this week, the subject of a message board for the back gate was discussed.

This installation has been discussed numerous times over the years and we believe this is a much needed item.

Many property owners use the back gate and have no idea of what is going on in the community.

The TLPOA spends money on pool furniture and golf equipment to benefit individuals who use those amenities.

The back gate is used by property owners and installing a message board in that location would be money well spent and would benefit many folks.

The TLPOA board of directors voted to adopt the proposed schedule of fees and charges Monday.

The second hearing was held before the vote.

We understand there were several changes in the property control category regarding permit fees.

There were also several changes for the Cayman Landing storage fees, site rentals and cabin rentals.

Proposed golf fees remain unchanged from last year with the addition of a junior golf category.

It was a cold snowy day Saturday and the road crew was here paving and working on the roads.

You don’t normally see crews paving and working in this type of weather.

This type of work is done in the summer and fall months – but, not in Treasure Lake where nothing is normal!

For one reason or another the paving was delayed until now.

We hope the cold weather now does not cause problems later, if it does we have spent lots of money only to have work done again

Winter is here and that brings cold, ice and snow.

The roads in Treasure Lake can be slippery and dangerous at times.

What looks like a wet road can be black ice.

We urge all drivers to use caution during this time of year.

With the many miles of roads it can take the maintenance department some time to get to the back roads.

Be careful out there!
