President’s Report

October 2018

The warm weather has left the building!!  Almost makes you glad Float Boat Day was Saturday! ALMOST!   We had a great summer on the beach and the lake.

It’s that time of year – Steve and his crew are starting to rake leaves and get other things ready for the cold season that will soon be staying around.  Please do not rake your leaves into the lake or onto Lake Cable property.

The new maintenance building is in the final stages. The Long Range Planning Club and some other talented members of the lake are painting the inside of the building.  It won’t be long until the maintenance crew will be moving in.

Don’t forget the Annual Lake Meeting is coming up—November 14, 2018 beginning at 7 PM sharp.  After the meeting coffee and cookies will not be served in the Pine Room. Instead we will be serving them in the new maintenance building.  This will give everyone a chance to see the building from the inside.  Hope you will join us.

Trunks N Treats was on Oct. 25th – 7 pm in the front parking lot.

Lake Cable craft show will be Nov. 4 – all day.  Always some great finds to be found here.

As always remember living at Lake Cable is a privilege not a right. Keep is safe and beautiful for all members to see and enjoy!

On behalf of the Lake Cable Board of Trustees and employees have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

See You Soon

Dear Friends,

First, congratulations to Bob Wynkoop and Ted Scheetz who were both reelected to the Board of Trustees for a two year term beginning January 1, 2019 and ending December 31, 2020.  Both Bob and Ted thank the membership for their trust and confidence.

Watch for your 2018 Annual Report in the mail sometime after November 9th.  This early mailing date should give you plenty of time to review the information before the Annual Meeting November 14th.

It looks like we are ready to begin the landscaping across the front of the clubhouse along Fulton.  I have heard from several people that they like the open look.  However, the township has requested that we do some landscaping in order to reinforce their commitment to keep Fulton Road from looking like West Tuscarawas and the Board agrees.  We plan alternating sections of cross buck fencing and plantings.  We believe you will appreciate and enjoy the end result.  In addition, I need a better backdrop for my Halloween display for Trunks N Treats.  Unfortunately that won’t be ready for this year.

We also sectioned off a portion of the beach to give us access to the old basketball court.  The plan is to resurface the existing portion of the court and extend it to make room for a pickle ball court.  This has been talked about for some time and with the upcoming asphalt work at the new building now is the time.

Speaking of the new building, completion is drawing near.  The building itself is complete.  We are “patiently” waiting for the gas company to install the gas line so we have heat.  The Long Range Planning Committee has stepped up and volunteered to do the interior painting.  Several members gathered on a couple of days to do this and save the Association a good bit of money.  Thanks LRPC!

As I mentioned some asphalt work and some landscaping on the west side of the building still need accomplished, both are in the works.  If the gas company gets the line in, in time the building will be open after the Annual Meeting for your inspection and cookies and coffee.

We have sold the Causeway lot on West Boulevard and Pine Drive Circle.  We had planned on using it as a commons and building docks and a parking lot but the Township and County will not let us build a parking lot on a residential lot.

We ended the year with 479 members.  This is the highest number of members since 1994 when we had 490; our lowest number was 433 back in 2008.

Have a great month,
