Greetings to Everyone!
It just seems like a few days ago that all of the lake emails were signed "think spring" that Bonnie and I sent out. Summer sure went by fast. That being said, there were so many improvements at the lake this summer. Many members hired Shannon to do shore work, dock work, and silt removal. The north end project has improved our lake for many years. The board wants to thank all of the members who made an extra donation to the project. It was a remarkable summer at the lake.
The Annual Meeting was on Saturday, August 17th. This is the first Annual Meeting in years that there were no elections or issues to be voted on by the mebmership. John Bryant, John Cowan, and Tom Owens were the only three members that ran for the board and will serve from 2014 through 2016. There were no nominations from the floor.
Officers that were elected to serve for 2014 at the January board meeting include:
Vice President-----Bert Cummins
The weight limits has been lifted on lake roads for the summer. The restriction is in place from Jan 1 throught April 1 and can be extended. The weight restriction is over for this winter.

You can also call him during the week at 217-351-4088 or on weekends at 217-419-3550. Remember the building application must be approved by the board before work begins.

Lake rules require members to wave an orange flag when a skier or tube rider is down. If you need an orange flag, please contact Connie Shaw (765-344-6206) or John Cowan (765-344-1323).
If you wish to reserve the pavillion for 2014, you will need to make reservation. Please contact Bonnie Rzonca or John Cowan for available dates. You can also check the calendar on the website to see if there is already a reservation. Reservations are not permitted on holiday weekends. (Memorial Day, 4th of July weekend, and Labor Day weekend).
The board continues to receive complaints about dogs running loose at the lake. Dogs must be kept on the owners property or on a leash at the common areas. Citations could be issued from the board and members are requested to call the Parke County Sherriff to report dogs running loose.
I recieved the following email this January and wanted to post it on the website for all of the members of Rocky Fork to read.
