Annual Report and Year-End Financials

October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2017

General OverviewWe had a very successful lake season last year with excellent attendance figures and great activities for our members. Your Board of Directors and our staff headed by Lauren Gerber, our Lake Director, have been working diligently to continue to enhance our facility and infrastructure so as to improve the quality of your time at the Lake.

Due to a substantial number of home sales and membership transfers we have finished our fiscal year ending Sept 30, 2017 with a surplus allowing us to make a contribution to our reserves fund. 

Going Forward the Board is continuing to gather information and meet with specialists and vendors in order to develop an appropriate program to remove excess sediment accumulated in the Lake over the last 90 years with the objective of improving water quality, your swimming experience, and the long term health of the lake. We will have a specific report on this matter later in the year. At this point it appears that we will be able to present a long term annual remediation plan to improve the health of the lake and enhance the quality of our lake water.

 

Letter from Your Lake Director

Happy New Year Lake Family! I hope this finds you well. We have started to look forward to our 2018 Season and are excited and ready for a full & fun summer. We will be continuing our traditions with our Annual meeting and membership BBQ on July 7, our  free swim lessons the second two weeks in July, our Water Carnival the first Saturday in August, and our Snack Shack will be hosting some fun dinners and bands throughout the summer.

·        It is time to pay your annual membership dues – an invoice and return envelope is enclosed in this mailing.  A second item may be listed on your invoice for those who are on the Special Assessment payment plan.  Payment is due upon receipt and must be paid no later than May 1st.  Please send your check as soon as you can.

        We are working towards a paperless mailing and billing system for our members. If you would like to go paperless, and/or if you have family members that would like to be added to our email list for newsletters please call 209-586-4449 or email Lauren at thlake@sbcglobal.net

         If you are new to Twain Harte Lake or would just like more information on happenings, policies, how to manage your property and lake profile, etc. please join us at the Snack Shack for coffee & donuts. There will be two date options: Saturday June 2nd or Saturday June 23rd, each from 10:00-11:00 am.  We will talk all things lake and get to know each other better.

·         We have a fantastic returning lifeguard staff this year, but are always looking for additional motivated and hardworking individuals.  If you know anyone who wants to be a lifeguard at Twain Harte Lake this summer, please have them contact us by email at thlake@sbcglobal.net.

·         We are looking for volunteers to help with both the Annual Membership BBQ (Saturday July 7) and the Water Carnival (Sat. August 4th) and also beginning the search for new Board Members to be elected at the next Annual Meeting.  If you would like to help in any of these areas, please drop us a note at thlake@sbcglobal.net.

The countdown to summer begins!
