News update: Water will be turned on April 12, 2013.
March 12, 2013
I hope everyone has had great winter and holiday season. By now I'm sure all of your are anxious as ever for the weather to warm up so you all can get back out on the lake. Hang in there, it's just around the corner!
I am very excited to start my second year as manager of Lakewood! Growing up, all I have ever wanted to do is what Dad did. Nothing changed as I went through high school or even college. I have to admit that as I got closer to "the real world" I started to get nervous about taking the calls, being the go to guy when problems arose, and meeting all of the customers. Well, a year in and all I can say is wow! I love my job! I am so blessed to be where I am! I get to do something different every day, I work with great employees, and I couldn't ask for a better group of customers! Thanks to each one of you for making my job so awesome!
This year brings some new changes. Lakewood now has a brand new recreation hall open to everyone. This is where we will be holding our events throughout the year. The event list is listed below and as you can see there is more events than last year. This is where we need your help. In order to pull off all of these events, we need some volunteers. What would be ideal is if a couple, or a group of couples would pick just one event to run. Most of the events are just bring a dish and play a game... nothing too strenuous. The big events like the 4th of July and Labor Day are all taken care off. So as you look through the list and see an event such as Casino night or Bingo Bash and want to run it, please contact us.
Also, this year Lakewood will be having a mandatory wash/clean up day. This is simply a deadline for everyone to wash the winter crud off the trailers and clean up the fall leaves. We will also be having a competition of who can make the best exterior improvement to their place. Details on entering, judging, and prizes are below.
Please visit our website at: www.bartonlake.com. Mark Goulet has done a fantastic job with our website and I cannot thank him enough. There you will find the rules listed, homes for sale, rates, and activities that are scheduled.
Please note that rental rates increased 2% for 2013 season. This represents the average inflation rate for the past year. Your lot class is listed at the bottom of this letter. These rates are effective for any rent due on or after April 1 2013.
This year water will be turned on April 12th and will be turned off October 21st, weather permitting.
See you soon,
