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.

IF YOU ARE NOT A CURRENT MEMBER OF THE AAPOA WE WILL HAVE MEMBERSHIP FORMS AT BOTH EVENTS

Town of Jay Reassessment Project

The town held a meeting on December 8, 2016 to discuss the upcoming reassessment project. I know many of you were unable to attend. Two of the AAPOA board members attended the meeting and took the handouts.  Paul Longenderfer has placed all the handouts at the top of the website under the Owner Resources banner.  Feel free to read and/or print them for yourselves.
