Greetings to Everyone!
Thanks to everyone who attended the 2014 Annual Meeting. In addition to Bonnie Rozonca, Mike Hoch, and Sue Rempert who announced previously they would be willing to serve on the board, Tim Richardson was nominated from the floor. After the ballots were counted, Mike Hoch, Sue Rempert, and Bonnie Rzonce were elected for the term from 2015-2017. The $200 legal assessment did pass. The proposal to make fast boating times consistant every day of the week (10:30-7) instead of different times during on weekdays versus weekends failed. Many committee reports were emailed out previous to the Annual meeting.
The date and time has been set for the September board meeting. It is Saturday, September 13th at 9:30 A.M. The meeting will be at the lakeside pavillion. In the case of bad weather the meeting will be moved to the clubhouse.
Roberta Hoch is once again selling Rocky Fork Lake calendars. Please contact Roberta or send me an email at
and I will forward your email to Roberta. The calendars benefit the common propoerty committee and are on sale for $15 each.
Please contact Bert Cummins (

Due to the damage of many docks over the winter there has been several requests to lower the lake to the eight foot level in 2014 instead of 2015. This will be discussed at the July board meeting as well as at the Annual Membership meeting. Now is the time to start planning ahead to do work on your docks while the lake is at the 8 foot level whether is lowered to the 8 foot level in 2014 or 2015. The valve will be opened on October 1st and the lake will be lowered to no more then ten inches below summer pool. That level will be maintained until the end of the Covered Bridge Festival. On Monday, October 20th, the valve will be opened and the lake will be lowered to the 8 foot level. The lake will only remain at the eight foot level a few weeks (December 31st) and will not be lowered to that level again until 2019 or 2020. Please contact me (John Cowan) for any further information or questions regarding the winter drawdown.

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.

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.
Later this summer I wish to update the contractor list on this website. Start thinking about additions or subtractions to the list. I will be sending out an email later this year for more input.
