To date there are 204 members.
Jim and Roger collected goose eggs for the goose egg collection and nest destruction program. There were only 12 eggs collected, despite several searches. There are currently many geese on the lake. Next year we will solicit more help and ask property owners to report nests.
Lake weeds were treated the week of June 2nd, 2021. Clarke Aquatic will be returning to address trouble areas. Al Vitous volunteered to survey the lake to highlight areas that need to be re-treated.
Al Vitous requested that the “NO WAKE” buoy be placed further out from the channel leading into Chickadee Cove. Kevin responded that the placement of the buoy must be approved by the HCSD.
Arda Boucher has completed a class for water testing. She will be conducting the testing this year.
JoEllen Wright was thanked for her donation to the parks with the proceeds from the wine crawl held each Labor Day weekend. There was discussion that this year’s proceeds fund two pickleball parks at the shelter house park. Kevin will work to obtain an estimate.
Kevin has made several repairs over the past year to playground equipment. The new play structure at the shelter house park will need to be re-stained.
