July 1st Picnic—Come Join Your Neighbors!!!

Date:  July 1ST                           Time: 2 PM                                         Place: Lake Eaton

On Saturday July 1st we will be hosting our annual 4th of July Picnic at Lake Eaton.  Festivities begin at 2 PM.  Please come join your friends and neighbors and be a part of celebrating our great little corner of the Adirondacks!!!  It will be a great afternoon of fun, food, and friends!

• All food (hamburger, hot dogs, chips), drinks (wine, beer, soda, water), and desert will be provided free!
• There will be a number of kids’ activities, and the volleyball/bocce ball courts are set up and ready to be used.
• The only thing you need to bring is a lawn chair.

Important Note Regarding The Picnic—Possible Postponement

The predicted weather for Saturday’s picnic is looking quite bad.  If there are a few stray showers we do have our new pavilion that will provide adequate protection.  However, if the forecast continues to call for more severe and continuous storms we may have to postpone the picnic to the following day: Sunday July 2nd  (starting at 2PM).  We will make that decision just prior to the start of the 10AM general meeting and announce any postponement at the meeting.  If postponing until Sunday occurs, we will also post that announcement on white boards attached to the AuSable Acres entrance signs at both ends of AuSable Drive, as well as the sign at the corner of AuSable Dr. and Sawmill.

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
