Reminder about pool rules

With the less than optimal forecast for the July 4th holiday weekend, you might want to take advantage of the LWE pool. Please remember and remind your guests to pay attention to the rules for the pool area. There are fines and penalties with no warnings if you don’t follow the rules. We rely on each other to maintain strict health and safety protocols by following the rules. Here is a recap of the rules.

Babies with diapers in the pool – use a waterproof diaper cover.

Dispose of diapers in the dumpster outside. Don’t leave them in the pool area.

Children and guests must be supervised by an adult LWEPOA member.

No glass objects in the pool area.

No food or beverages in the pool area.

Do not allow the rear doors to stay open.

Swimming only – no running, sports or horse-play.

No pool toys that could injure another.

No pets allowed in the pool area.

Time to Clean Up Your Lot

Just a reminder to all homeowners to take advantage of the Spring weather and clean up around your lot.

  • remove leaves from culverts and drains to allow runoff to properly drain
  • keep your grass cut
  • cut back trees that encroach on roads (sunlight helps keep our roads from disintegrating)
    • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRIM TREES THAT ARE CLOSE TO OR TOUCHING POWER LINES
  • remove fallen branches and twigs.

Boat Ramp and Dock Area Etiquette

Here are some things to think about before you arrive at the ramp area to enjoy the dock area or launch or retrieve your watercraft ( e.g., boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak, etc.)

Park your car or truck or golf cart or ATV away from the ramp area.

Fish only from the fishing dock. Watch out for people traversing the docks or the beach area.

Protect small children and have them wear a life jacket when they are near the water.

Fueling your watercraft at the dock or ramp area is potentially dangerous and not allowed.

Always park your trailer above in the clubhouse lot or at your house. Never leave your trailer in the lower dock area.

If you are new to launching a watercraft, choose a time to learn when the ramp area is empty. Mid-morning or later afternoon of a beautiful day when there is a line waiting to launch is not a good time to learn how to launch your boat.

Prepare your watercraft before you get to the ramp. The more time you take at the ramp getting ready to launch could cause someone else to wait unnecessarily.

Don’t forget to install your boat’s drain plugs before launching!

Have a friend help you launch your boat. One to drive and one to handle the boat makes the job safe and quick.

Don’t leave your watercraft floating near the ramp when you drive your trailer to the upper lot. Move it to the temporary slip or tie it off far out of the way, temporarily.

Don’t take time to socialize while launching or retrieving your watercraft. Get the job done as quickly and safely as possible, and then have fun!

Volunteers Create New Dock Mains

“C” Dock is undergoing major improvements. Volunteer members of the community met on Saturday to build new dock mains. Other dock fingers will be upgraded this Spring by the group of volunteers. We are very thankful for the volunteers who donate their time, talents, tools and even their personal facilities to build and repair the docks.
