President’s Report
May 24, 2022

The Summer season begins on Memorial Day weekend. We have had such a cool spring, with six inches of rain in May, that the lake is still chilly, barely reaching 70 degrees. Please review the boating rules so we have a safe boating season this year. There is a 100 foot no wake zone around the perimeter of the lake and docks in the high- speed area. All coves are no wake zones. If a skier is down, put up your orange flag to help warn people someone is in the water.

The 50th anniversary weekend was a wonderful celebration. Friday night’s party was well attended, had beautiful decorations, a DJ, dancing and a slide show presentation of the history of Lake Holiday. The slide show was a compilation of newspaper articles, sales brochures and advertisements from the 1970’s plus old Summit newsletters. It will be posted on the lakeholidaycc.org website for those who missed it. Sunday was a great beach day. The pot luck lunch at the clubhouse served tasty fried chicken and yummy desserts. Boat rides were offered to those who wanted a tour of the lake. Poster size photos of Lake Holiday by very talented Erik Zimmerman were installed in the clubhouse in time for the anniversary. The week before, the Winchester Star came to Lake Holiday to do an article to commemorate the community’s progress. It was on the front page of the newspaper on Thursday, May 19th! The article was very positive and upbeat.

As part of my report this month I have included a history timeline of Lake Holiday since its beginning in 1970. If you take the time to read it, you will see that we have weathered some difficult issues over the last five decades. Since 1998 we have had some hardworking, wise board leaders that have helped us become the thriving community that we are today. We have learned from the past and there is a bright future to look forward to.

Beach II will be open for Memorial Day! A few small projects are left to be completed such as a boardwalk from the handicapped parking to the beach. Landscaping will be done in the fall. Two of the kayak racks are back in position. The parking lot has been asphalted and striped and all signs are in place. Sleigh Drive has become a one-way circle, so please be careful. The new concrete marina path to Docks B&C was completed last week. New canoe and kayak racks will be placed near the existing ones when maintenance has time to build them. The maintenance crew have been working hard to make the common areas look great as summer begins. The beaches have been smoothed, mulch has been placed in the flower beds, grass has been mowed.

We will have a special board meeting for a presentation from Jim Pagenkopf of Lake Committee on the committee’s approved plan for preserving and protecting the health of our lake. There will be several action items that the board will need to address as a result of the presentation. The date of the special meeting is scheduled for June 23rd at 6:30 for all members who wish to attend.

Pat Majewski
Board President
