Trail Day – Hard Work in the Rain

 

The trails committee held a maintenance day in May. On a rainy Saturday, the team of Kevin McDonough, Frank Krueger and Jim Jacobs gathered to do a wide sweeping clean-up and pruning of the Green trail. The team started at the AuSable Drive trailhead and worked several miles heading back to the Kitzbuhel area of the Acres.  There will be another Trail Day on October 7th. All are welcome to help. Thanks to our trail committee, the trails are looking better and better. We know our members are enjoying them.

Oops, newsletter Corrections

Most of you have received the Acres Reporter by now. You may have noticed that there was no membership form at the back, as there always is.  If you need a form, I have attached a link to the form in this post.  There is also a form under the Owners Resources banner on the top of the website. Please print it, fill it out and send it with your check. We are at 252 members and would love to have more owners join and be able to use our amenities.

Another oops! Frank and Mary Kruegers names were omitted from the Planter Comm. Sorry and thanks to all of you. They planters are currently being set up and looking very nice.

The Acres Gets Ready for Summer

Last Saturday, May 20th, Bill and Lynne Johnson, Charlie and Elyse Roller, Bob & Lou Moriarty and Kate and Zach Zientko participated in the roadside cleanup which was organized by board members Joe DeMarco and Loyd Brewer.  Thanks to our members who have adopted roads throughout the Acres, the cleanup crew focused on side roads.  Gerry and Michelle Loughren and Fran Shumway cleaned AuSable Dr. from one end to the other before the scheduled cleanup.

I want to thank all those who have adopted roads and who participated in the cleanup. Since all of us have a stake in keeping the Acres beautiful, it is wonderful to have so many helpers.

The bathrooms are now open and the water fountain has been turned on for the summer.  The tennis court net is up and we have a new volunteer, Jim Jacobs, who will take care of the court. Thanks, Jim.

Paul Longenderfer and the trail committee had a work day early in May. They have plenty to do and will have another day in October.  Thanks to all the hard workers who keep the trails in such great shape. It is an endless project.

I look forward to seeing you on July 1st at the meeting and at the picnic.

Rosemary Barry, AAPOA President

Tennis Anyone?

Spring has arrived and our tennis court is ready for our AAPOA members. The net is up and the lock is set with this year’s combination which is on the back of your membership card.  Enjoy tennis and/or pickle ball as the weather improves.

AAPOA Board Elections Coming in July

As we do every year, three AAPOA board seats are up for election. The term is for three years. Loyd Brewer, Pat Levine and Rosemary Barry are not running again, having served on the board for many years. This year there are two people who will be running for two of the seats. There is still one vacancy to fill.  You can be a part time or full time resident. There are about 5 board meetings and 2 General Membership Meetings (one in July and one in the fall) a year. I would ask any AAPOA member who might consider this important position to send me a bio (president@ausableacres.org)  by April 1st that can go in the spring issue of our newsletter. If you wish to discuss the role of a board member with me, or have any other questions, please contact me at (518) 217-8519.  Thanks for your consideration.

Rosemary Barry, President AAPOA
