From the President:
Association members and Volunteers…Wow, hard to believe it’s
already a new year and with your assistance we achieved many
successes in 2009. We completed several projects
critical to long term stewardship of the lakes, tweaked our
association lake rules and thanks to your contribution of
dues and time volunteered; Lakewood Village Lake Lots
clearly retains its status among the best and most desirable
places to live in Sarpy County.
And speaking of Sarpy County,
It's rare for a town to rack up great scores in both economic
performance and housing affordability and this area delivers
both. Add in the acres of open space, traffic jams that are
unheard of, and parents feel comfortable letting their kids
ride bikes unsupervised. Just
down the road we have the awesome Offutt AFB,
Amphitheater, a $1.5 million performing arts center that
hosts free movies, concerts, and wine tastings, and in just
a couple of years a new AAA baseball stadium will offer
family fun and entertainment.
Please thank these neighbors for volunteering and
acknowledge their contribution. Linda and
Dave Foxall continue to serve as Treasurer (to
manage the financials) and Board member respectively.
Joe Stangel and Steve Bronicki
oversee the Architectural, Environmental and Maintenance
Committee. This is a key responsibility that deals
with all aspects of lake maintenance and neighborhood
appearance, structures and environment.
Roxanne Hardebeck continues to serve as chair of the
Rules Committee and has expanded her role to be responsible
for a top to bottom rules and convenient enforcement review.
Kurt Ubbelohde continues to oversee issues
associated with the Dams and is the association Vice
President. Mike Pickette continues to
serve as the association "Web Master." Remember to
bookmark our website,
as it will continue to be a source of community information
on LWVLOA 's events along with other useful links and
membership information. Rick and Vicky Warner
oversee the finance committee association Secretary duties.
Mark Frill and Dan Alexander
have become valuable members of the Board.
So we are off to a great start in 2010, but here are a few
items of interest as we start off the year at Lakewood
Keep your sidewalks clear of snow
Lake safety: In
the winter ensure the ice is thick and can support your
weight. As the
temperatures warm, inspect watercraft to ensure all
equipment is operational and safe.
Obey the rules and covenants…they were recently
association does not want to police your actions, but we
won’t ignore them either.
Be a good neighbor…question strangers and report
Have fun on the lake, but be courteous of others,
respect privacy and minimize noise after dark.
Cheers, Don Kelly
