Just like the Members, maintenance was getting quite a bit of our “winter work” complete with the mild winter.  Especially “lake work” that only happens every fourth year.  Then the rain that brought the lake up to full pool – and now the snow.  Unfortunately, our 35-year-old snowplow on the red truck (our four-wheel-drive truck) shot craps last week.  We are lucky that Joe and Matt were able to install a new one just in time for this snow.   We also have another delivery of salt on the way.  Two expenses that we were not planning on, at least this year.

If you have an issue, please fill out a maintenance report or email me at Do not speak to our employees directly or go into the maintenance yard.
