Team Provost

Many thanks to Team Provost on their successful roadside cleanup! Dad Cory with daughters, Mila (8yo) and Bristol (9yo) tackled Cedar St over the holiday weekend and left it looking so much better for their efforts! Cory Prevost was keen to use the project as a positive learning experience for her daughters and by the looks on their faces, I think we can say, mission accomplished!

We all know how much of a challenge it is to keep our neighborhoods clean so, thanks to everyone who participates.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you’re well and taking good care.  I wanted to remind you that this could be a good time to fulfill your fall roadside cleanup commitment. Of course, any time of year is a good time but, right now before the snow flies and the ground gets covered, is especially good! I finished my stretch on Sunday and within an hour I had collected #2 large bags of waste and walked 3 miles. It felt great!

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to be added to our roster. Everyone is welcome to participate; whether it’s the road you live on and/or use frequently, the more conscientious people caring for our resources, the better!

Thank you for your time and commitment.

Ausable Acres Roadside Cleanup

Spring 2020

Time to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Spring Roadside Cleanup!

Drum roll please for the following individuals, families, and neighbors:
Alberts; Bennetts; Conneys; DeFinas; Mary Ilaqua; John & Diane; Cori Potter; Sauers; Shumways and Signorelli’s. Additional thanks go to Knut Sauer and Pete DeFina for helping to organize this year’s cleanup and providing the necessary tools to do it safely.

I think everyone will agree that they did a wonderful job! Our neighborhood looks so clean and refreshed that for me at least, it’s a dream to keep it that way forever! And as a matter of fact, you can by becoming a member of our Adopt-A Road Program! This long standing program runs simultaneous to the Spring and Fall Cleanup schedules and allows you to adopt and maintain a favorite stretch of road year-round. In fact, several people did just that this Spring! Thank you to our new Adopt-A-Road members: The Alberts, Conneys; Cori Potter; and the Rollers. Please note that prior members (thank you!) will be acknowledged in a separate email post.

I’m grateful to everyone who helped out this year. Spring 2020 came on the heels of a very trying chapter in our lives; a time where for many of us, the day to day uncertainties left us feeling unmoored and disconnected. I think I can safely speak for everyone involved when I say, it felt really good to focus on the task at hand and know for certain what it’s outcome would be. We did it and I thank you!

Spring Roadside Clean-up

Re: Roadside Cleanup

Dear Acres Residents,

Hope you are staying safe and healthy.

We want to take the opportunity to thank those of you who already have been out doing some road side cleanup. Our roads have been cleaner this spring than they have been in past years.

Given the Covid-19 situation we will not hold a “group” roadside clean up event this spring. Rather, we encourage people to get out and enjoy a walk, and if you can, please help out and pick up some garbage while doing so.

The Au Sable Acres Property Owners Association is making available, in a safe way, trash pick-up tools and garbage bags for those of you who want to volunteer and help out. Once you are done, the garbage bag(s) can be dropped off behind the pavilion, or preferably you can have it picked up with your own garbage pickup if possible. The trash pick-up tools we ask that you keep in your possession until when this pandemic is over and we can avoid possible cross contamination.

We ask that you contact us to “register” so we can cross out the roads you will be doing, and arrange delivery of trash bag(s) and pick-up tools. Even if you don’t need pick-up tools or bags, please do let us know which roads you may be doing. Attached is a file with the various road sections and a trail map so you can identify the three sections/landmarks referenced on AuSable Drive from Pavilion to Rt. 86.

If you will drop off the garbage by the pavilion, it is very important that you arrange the drop off with us, including the day and approximate time with us, so we can ensure quick disposal. Only roadside garbage is allowed!

To “register” please contact:
Laurie Conney;

Also, thank you to all of our Adopt A Road Volunteers:
* Joyce Philips-Fir St
* Fran and Steve Shumway-Tannenbaum & Spruce,
* Kathy DeFina-Sawmill from Sequoia Mtn to Summit
* Diane and John Mehrman-first section of AuSable Dr. Off 86
* Lynne and Bill Johnson-Oneida Lane and Sequoia Mountain Lane from  the junction with Oneida to the turn -around at the end.
* Knut & Marisol Sauer-Ridgetop, Hawthorne and Maple Lane
* Frank Krueger-AuSable Drive from Lakeside to Ridgetop. And Sawmill from Alder to AuSable Drive.
* Jim Haig-Oak Hollow Rd., around lake and silver trail, Cherry St. and Butternut
* Fran Shumway- sections of AuSable Drive
* Jim Jacob- AuSable Drive between the two Oak Hollow signs.
* Bob and Lou Moriarty-River Road and Cascades

If any of you wish to make a change please do let us know, and for those of you who may want to sign up, please send an email to Laurie Conney;
Thank you again!

Acres Trail Map


Please Join us for our spring roadside clean-up day on Saturday, May 9th, at 9:00 am.

We’ll meet at the Lake Eaton pavilion at 9:00AM and then spread out in teams.  Please wear comfortable walking shoes, we expect each stretch to be about 1-2 miles and we should be done within an a hour and a half or so.

Garbage bags and the long handled pick-up tongs will be provided.  If anyone has a pickup truck to help drop the garbage bags at the Town of Jay sandpit towards the end of Ausable Drive that would be great.

The event is rain or shine.

Please bring your neighbors and friends as we need all the help we can get!
