President’s message for May 2018
After months of rain, snow, and wind, we are all certainly ready for the warmth and sunshine of summer!
Our first LCIA general meeting of the season is scheduled for Saturday, May 26 at 10:00AM in the Community Center. We hope to see as many residents of the lake there as possible. We will be giving updates on our projects and other items of interest impacting property owners on the lake. In addition, LCIA members will be voting on a potential dues increase from $40 to $50 that would be in effect for 2019.
At our first board meeting we prioritized our goals and projects for the year. The first is to begin fund raising for the paving of the parking lot at the Community Center. The second is to complete the ongoing landscaping project at the Community Center that has been led by Larita (Tweetie) Humble. The board has prioritized funds from our current budget to finish the landscaping project. For the paving project, we have set a fund raising goal of $25,000 to “GO PAVE ME! Also, we are still looking for a volunteer (or group of volunteers) to organize and run our rummage sale. If this may be of interest to you, please contact any board member.
For your convenience we have included an addressed envelope to our LCIA treasurer Matt Douglas. This envelope may be used to send your LCIA dues or a donation to our paving project, or both!
Your LCIA continues to monitor the progress of the county SMP (Shoreline Management
Project) and other issues that may impact our property owners at Lake Cavanaugh. Updates, when available will be posted on our website.
Please remember that our July 2018 newsletter will be sent electronically only. We will be trying this for the month of July only. Our August and September newsletter will again be mailed (or sent electronically if you prefer) to LCIA members only.
Again, we will kick off our “Spring Into Summer” with live big band jazz music by the Skagit Swings Jazz ensemble. Come to the Community Center from 7-10PM Saturday night May 26th to dance or just listen! (It’s BYOB!)
Finally, we want to encourage all residents to join the LCIA. The strength of our numbers keeps us a viable community voice when dealing with matters of mutual concern either with the county or otherwise that impact us all at Lake Cavanaugh.
