Cell Service Problem in Jay

I am copying a post that was in tonight’s Jay Community News for your information, in case you missed it. Thanks to Trudy Rosenblum for all she does with the Jay Community News.

Rosemary Barry, AAPOA President

I just wanted to make you aware of the current situation with the lack of cell service within the Town of Jay since Sunday. There are a couple of factors that are contributing to this lack of coverage; one being a problem with the Bassett Mountain Tower and also a main T1 Line is down between Long Lake and Tupper Lake. Verizon crews are in the process of locating and fixing this problem.

I have been in constant contact with Essex County Emergency Services Director Donald Jaquish, Verizon Wireless and the Public Service Commission in order to monitor this situation. I am aware that some constituents rely solely on cell phones and no longer have a land line available, so I want to reassure you that in the event of emergency, cell users can dial 911 on their Verizon device and it will connect to a backup line that will automatically roll over to an emergency dispatch operator.

Please be advised that I am working diligently with the proper authorities to have full service restored to our area as soon as possible.

My best to you, and I hope that you are having a safe and enjoyable summer.

Town of Jay Supervisor

Neighborly Request For Dog Owners

As you know, we have many common areas in AuSable Acres. The trails and lake area are especially well used. Many people bring their dogs with them on the trails and around the lake. We ask that you bring plastic bags with you and clean up after your dog as you would be expected to do in most towns, cities, and villages. It is the neighborly thing to do. Thank you. We appreciate your cooperation.

AAPOA General Membership Meeting This Saturday

There will be a General Membership Meeting on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 10:00 am in the Community Center in AuSable Forks. The AAPOA constitution was amended at the July meeting to change the second meeting of the year to the fall instead of December. We are hoping that more people will be able to attend by having it at this time of year. There will no longer be a meeting in December. The next meeting after this will be on July 5, 2014. The meeting agenda is attached below. It will also be available at the meeting. Hope to see you Saturday.

AAPOA Pot Luck Picnic a Delicious Success

On Sunday, September 1, 2013 about 50 members and guests gathered at Lake Eaton for the annual Pot Luck Picnic. This year the food was better than ever and another delicious cake was brought by Phil and Marilou Dooley.  There are so many great cooks around. There were a few people who had never come before and they left full, happy and glad to be part of our Association. It was a wonderful way to end the summer at AuSable Acres. How many people in the photos below can you name?
