Holiday Spirit is Alive and Well in the Acres

The barrels around the Acres have been decorated by our industrious elves. They are Elyse Roller, Fran Driscoll, Mary Ann Dee, Dick Maloney, Frank and Mary Krueger and Kevin and Laurie McDonough. A special thank you goes out to Laurie for making the two big wreaths on the pavilion. They look spectacular.  Be sure to check them out. Below is one of the wreaths.

The AuSable Acres/Forks Book Club will meet on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at 7:30 pm. We will be meeting on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the AuSable Forks Public Library. We all felt that it worked well in the past when we met there.

Our book for January is Leonardo DaVinci by Walter Isaacson. This will be available at the library.

Thanks to Marilou Dooley for arranging this with the library and Lynne Comegys for helping with the key. Looking forward to seeing you there. New members are welcome. Come meet your fellow book lovers.

AAPOA Spring Dinner A Big Success

On May 26, 2016 over 50 people gathered at the Hungry Trout in Wilmington for a fun-filled evening with their neighbors.  Chairperson Joyce Phillips introduced some new activities, like a 50/50 raffle. The prizewinner won $81. Not bad!  There were games with AuSable Acres history and geography questions with the winning tables getting door prizes.  Everyone really had a good time.  Hopefully, there will be as many people, if not more, who will attend the AAPOA Fall Dinner. The date will be in the next newsletter.  Meantime, enjoy the attached photos. Thanks, Joyce, for your hard work. It was worth it.

The Lakeside Pavilion Nears Completion.

Thanks to board members/contractors, Loyd Brewer and Phil Dooley, along with volunteers the AAPOA pavilion at Lake Eaton will be usable for our picnic on July 2, 2016.  It is truly a beautiful sight to behold. It began three years ago as an idea and a fund raising campaign. Two years ago the foundation was poured with hookups for later installation of water and electric, if we want it. Construction began this April. We are grateful for the generous support of our members and JLKN’s John Johanson. NYSEG is getting the initial work done for the electric hookup. We plan to add picnic tables, too.  We are keeping an eye on the budget to determine how best to proceed with that. I am attaching a few pictures but you really should see it up close to get a better idea of what was accomplished.
