CLCC President’s Message

Dear friends and neighbors,

So, the month of March was pretty intense, with three nor’easters in a row and a few feet of snow. Most homes in the lake lost power at least once. The good news is that the lake is now full to the brim and the warm weather is right around the corner.

A big thanks to Susan Ulversoy for organizing another sold out Saint Patrick’s Day party. Attendees enjoyed a top notch corned beef and cabbage dinner that was expertly prepared on the premises by CLCC board member Devin DeMarco (and friends). The night was capped off with a beautiful performance by dancers from the Wick-Hegarty School of Irish Dance.

CLCC Membership renewal notices have gone out. Please send in your dues as soon as possible, especially if you plan to participate in any sports or club activities, including patronage of the club bar. Speaking of which, the bar has been moved back upstairs now that spring is here. So come on by for a cold one–the deck is open.

We will be holding a spring cleaning work party at the clubhouse in April, date to be determined. Volunteers will be provided food and refreshments. Jobs include sweepers, moppers, rakers, painters, stick picker-uppers and window washers. Details to come via email blast.

I want to thank everyone who has helped out in any way over the last year, especially the board members, the CLLA and all of the volunteers who came early and stayed late on event days and a special thanks to the senior brigade.

As winter ends and spring arrives, I leave you with one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost:

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Best regards,

Bob Vidal
CLCC President
