News from the Office
There is a Baby blue Sunfish sailboat at Sandy Beach that has no WLLA boat sticker on it and no Pennsylvania numbers on it. Please call the office @ 296-7788 if you have any information on who owns this boat. If the office does not receive a response, we will confiscate the boat and dispose of it.
The checking account balance as of July 26, 2007 was $46,245.17.
Income for July was $7,885.04.
Expenses for July were $16,517.88.
Total funds in the Reserve Accounts are $177,315.47 as of June 30, 2007.
Our budget is still on track. These will be the crucial months until the end of the year. There is little revenue coming in since the deadline was February 28th. This is expected since we must receive the bulk of our operating expenses as early in the year as possible. Having a clear picture of the revenue is making the projection for future expenses more manageable.
To those of you that have come forward recently to pay your assessments after many years, thank you.

Notice from the Road Committee
WALKER LAKE ANNUAL BEACH PARTY SATURDAY, JULY 21ST
We had 135 well-fed and happy Walker Lakers sharing smiles and yummies. Our "GRILLMASTERS", led by John Innaco, Bernie Di Maio, Bill Carpenter, Chet Dawson, Art Politano, Mario Gargulio, and Charlie Kieselmann, made sure the tables were loaded with food. Tat Chan donated another barbecue to add to our collection. Thank you.
Under the direction of our "MASTER CHEF", Pat Innaco placed all the goodies, including her huge pan of roasted potatoes, and MaryAnn Duvoison's sausage & peppers and pasta salad, with the baked beans and sauerkraut on our groaning board of food. Our neighbors were well fed.
Our "WATERMELONERS", Kelly & Peter Wulfhorst made sure the sweet slices were a perfect fit for our mouths and hands. Cheryl & John Keator were the best "ICE CREAM SCOOPERS" -- they made sure " I " got "MY" chocolate sundae this year. Irene Buhler's backyard blueberries made her donated cakes grand!! These were added to the other desserts brought by great neighbors.
Our new Kareoke music DJ's were Roger & Donna Vreeland...they were a delight, and thanks to MaryAnn Duvoison for finding them for us. Silly me, in all the fun time, I forgot to tell them, "Please enjoy our foods". Hopefully, we can have them again next year. Thank you to Josh & Risa Stern for their electric power for our music.
Thanks to Irene & George Buhler and Jan & Bill Bekisz for checking in all our fun-goers at the "Blue Table" and being sure everyone had a Name Tag so we all knew each other.
Our "GAMEMASTERS" were Chip Jaeger and Tony Edelstein --they truly enjoyed themselves setting up the Raw Egg Toss contest with all the little children and adults. Tyler Williams and Barb Silver were the best yolker picker uppers from the beach sand. We had lots of EGGY shampoos that needed many paper towels. Screams and laughter filled the air with the "Fill the Water Bucket" contest and many strong arms and legs worked really hard to complete their tasks.
Many thanks to our Beach and Grounds crew Charlie & Gwen Kieselmann who worked so hard to pretty up our Beach with flowers and white sand. Thanks also to Don Wall for the smoothest beach that always gets RAIN-washed away just before our party.
My "Flyer Putter Uppers", were Judy Mays, Bernie Di Maio, Fran & Phil Orth, and Art Politano. We put up over 150 Flyers, but we still needed to call and remind people. P U L E A S E -- we need YOUR NAMES so we can shop for food to fill your tummies. My shopping expert was Patty Innaco. Next year, I will split up the shopping; our muscles got really big pushing those carts with all that food.
If I forgot any names, forgive me, we had such a great day, and with so many people helping to make it so enjoyable --twas a pleasure seeing all the happy people and hearing them say "I never knew these neighbors!" This is my JOY and BLESSING, having all our neighbors at WALKER LAKE knowing each other and enjoying each other. See you all next year! MARK IT ON YOUR CALENDAR!
