There has been a resignation  on the Board and we need to get Ron Villandry on board and re establish the Board. More info to follow after Saturday 

This is an open meeting 


Anyone that has an open site permit that they have completed the work requested. Please contact the Site Committee when you’ve completed your project, which you’ve received a permit for Notify Scot at 603-231-7824 or email at mrsac@aol.com for a final sign off.           

Thanks Scot

Site Committee

The Site committee will be available on Sundays at the lodge, from 9am until 12 noon. There will no longer be anyone available on Saturdays. The Site Committee will be at the lodge writing permits every other Sunday and not every week as it has been. Thanks for everyone’s understanding.

– Scot Chambers, Site Chairman

On water-off day  (forecast for Nov. 1st), all connections to spigots must be removed. Any splitters in use at hydrants must be disconnected as well. $25 fine

People are still taking the road mix for their personal use. Could you please emphasize that it is stealing and no individual is entitled to the material.

Due to the severe financial situation the association is currently dealing with, water work requests will only be addressed if there are leaks that need to be fixed. As soon as there are adequate funds available, we will begin working the requests. It will not be necessary to make a new request. All open requests will remain on the work list until they are completed.
