Today to be the Hottest Day this Week!

The National Weather Service is predicting that today will be the hottest day this week, at 107°F. Tomorrow is supposed to be only slightly less at 102°F, and Friday at 98°F.

The power draw of an air conditioner increases as the outside temperature increases, so during the hottest part of today each air conditioner may draw up to 30% more current than is marked. Additionally, an active water heater or microwave oven pulls as much current as an air conditioner, and an RV fridge can pull about half the current of an air conditioner. Therefore, during this period of extremely heavy air conditioner use, we ask that you use only a single air conditioner, to please put your RV fridge and your water heater on propane, and to be cautious in your microwave oven use as well to lower the peak power draw through the main breakers (we had several trip yesterday). Thanks!

RECORD HEAT THIS WEEK – WARNING

Everyone should be aware of the record heat-wave heading our way this week. Temperatures are predicted to peak between Tuesday and Thursday at 110 degrees or higher. Besides the normal precautions of making sure you have enough water and a working air conditioner, it might be a good idea to have a “back-up” plan in the event of a power outage… a place to go if it becomes necessary. And if you have less-mobile neighbors, check in on them to make sure they’re OK… especially if we have a power outage. Also, several people in the park don’t have air conditioning… just fans. 

Whenever the heat rises to extreme levels, the fire danger rises too. Keep yourself attuned to your surroundings and be prepared to take action if the situation calls for it. And please also remember that we’re sharing the electric power in this park, so no more than ONE AIR CONDITIONER running at a time.

Here’s a copy of the forecast for the week ahead as it stands this morning:

Annual Meeting was held July 18th

On July 18th the membership gathered to go over the past years events and make plans for the future.

The early preliminaries included honoring the original members who had a hand in the building of the park, introducing the members who joined in the last year, and remembering those who have passed on this year.

Following Roberts Rules of Order they heard the minutes and reports from the secretary and treasurer. And reports from all of the committees. The reports spotlighted the growth and progress of each committee.

After the lunch break, (which was prepared by the Jacks & Jills and the Cooking Group) it was time to get down to business. As there was not a quorum no vote involving By-Laws could be taken.

L to R: Kris Gordon, Don Bush, Nancy Hergenreder, Ron Pennington, Donna Roberson, Bob DuMilieu, Cathey Johnson, Thom Hoch, Ken Grant

First was the election of new officers. The results are President, Cathey Johnson,
Vice president, Nancy Hergenreder, Secretary, Ron Pennington, and Treasurer, Bob DuMilieu.

Gene Fisher explained how the parking lot was being damaged by seeping water through the underlayment. An engineer has advised the park on how to fix the problem. Phase 1 of the project consists of a trench along the south edge. Materials and piping need to be bought. Phase 2 will finish the project. Both motions carried.

A motion was made and passed to spend up to $1000 for new padded chairs for the dining room.
A motion was made and passed to keep the washing machines as they are now and not replace any now.

We were reminded to observe the speed limit of 20 mph and also reminded that lots need to be kept clean and weed free throughout the park. The management has the authority to warn a lease holder or order the work done and bill the lease holder.

This is a Co-op park. All were given the opportunity to sign up for various committees. The work done by all of the committees is what keeps our maintenance fees down. Watch for the organizational meeting each committee will have in the next few weeks. Join the committees that suit your talents. They will be glad to have you.
