Happy New Year (and news updates)

The AAPOA board would like to wish everyone in AuSable Acres a healthy, happy 2015.

We have lots of positive things to report but for now, just a few highlights. This spring we are planning to construct the LAKESIDE PAVILION for our members’ use. The foundation was poured last September. The plans will be reviewed by JLKN and then finalized. Thanks to your generosity, our fundraising is about $1,500.00 away from our goal. Donations will continue to be accepted and if we go over the goal, we will be able to connect electricity and water at the site. We hope to be able to add some picnic tables, too. You can include a donation with your membership dues. ┬áThe membership form and Pavilion Donation form are both under the Owner Resources banner on the top of the website. Please send the pavilion donation form so your donation will be recognized on a plaque to be placed in the pavilion.

DUES COLLECTION: AAPOA dues for 2015 are due in January. If you haven’t sent yours in yet, please do so this month. The form is on the website along with our address. Thank you for your support of the organization that helps to care for our piece of the Adirondacks.

2015 BOARD ELECTION There are three seats up for election at the General Membership meeting in July. They are currently being held by Joe DeMarco, Phil Dooley and Paul Longenderfer. All of them plan to run again and their bios will be in the next issue of the newsletter. There is one additional vacancy. Tim Mainzer is leaving the board in July and there is one year left to his term. We will elect someone to complete this one year term at the meeting. If anyone wishes to run for any of these seats, please mail a bio to me or send it by email (address on website) before March 31, 2015. Please specify if you are running for the three year or one year term.

That’s it for now. There will be more news in a few days. Stay tuned.

Rosemary Barry, AAPOA President
