Motion passed to collect annual dues in the Spring, rather than fall to
have all monies (dues/slip maintenance) coming into the Treasurer at
the same time. Fiscal Year will end on Dec 31st and begin on January
1 of every year.
Talked about membership drive ideas, dropping the price of annual
dues to gain more membership, looking for ideas to get people
interested in their neighborhood. Possibility of Sunday afternoon
‘neighborhood walk group’, meet at Cass Lake Boat Launch on
Sunday afternoons to get to know your neighbors, become aware of
community outlots and locations. Further information will be posted
Talked about switching Elizabeth Lake Slip area with Beach area,
more room for current slip holders at current beach area? (no ‘pinch
points’ from neighboring docks?). And….lake bottom is better for
swimming at current slip area. Bob (Slip Manager) to assess areas.

(Community Emergency Response Team) members from the
neighborhood. Mark to get information to John to post on the
Attendance was low as usual, of aprox. 480+ homeowners, about 30
showed (very disappointing). Hoping to be able to get back to
Haviland Elementary for meetings, the school was temporarily
unavailable due to security and budget constraints. Maybe this will
increase attendance. Those that come to support us are appreciated!
