By Elizabeth Knapp The Budget Committee and the General Manager Bud Fallon, met to prepare a budget for the coming year 2012/2013. Due to the present economic conditions, it was agreed that a freeze would be put on spending. While some line items, such as insurance premiums and fuel expenses continue to rise, we were able to present a workable budget to the Board of Directors. The budget consists of $1,787,060 in income, operating expenses $1,290,700 and capital expenses $496,360. There will still be an early payment discount of $10, credit card use fee of $8.00 and insufficient funds fee of $50.00. There is a two-payment plan available for those who would like to use it. Included in the capital budget is continuing maintenance of our roads, a new replacement security vehicle, carpeting for the office and adding money to reserves. The Board approved the new budget and we are happy to announce there will not be an increase in dues this year.



The speed limit on ALL Pocono Springs roads is 25 MPH, except where otherwise posted.

President’s Message By Mary Ann Arciprete I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas. As we now approach the beginning of another year may only good things be ahead for us as a community. We start with the fact that there will be no increase in the PSCA dues. Realizing the condition of our economy, your Board of Directors acted accordingly when approving the budget. Things around us always seem to stay the same while at the same time are ever changing. Roads are paved, dumpsters emptied, buildings painted, the dam inspected, the pool made ready for the winter, salt and anti-skid has been ordered and delivered and trucks are dressed with their plows. I have high-lighted a few tasks which keep our maintenance staff busy on a daily basis. I hope everyone is enjoying their “fobs” as much as I am. Just remember when going through the back gate be aware of the vehicle leaving the guest window. If you have not picked up your key “fob” yet, you can do so at the front gate between the hours of 7:00 am and 11:00 pm. PSCA is very fortunate to have an active recreation committee. Look at the bulletin boards at the entry gates for upcoming events. As always if you have a question you can reach me at Stay warm and I hope to see you at one of our monthly Board meetings.

PSCA Children’s Halloween Party

General Manager’s Message By William “Bud” Fallon As I look outside, it is hard to believe that it is actually January. There is no snow to be seen. It has been a mild winter so far and we have had temperatures in the 40’s. If we can make it through February and March, it won’t be too bad. The office is preparing the billing that will be going out in early February. The dues amounts have remained the same. You have $685 for a home and $490 for a lot. We have the early pay discount in the amount of $10, if dues are paid by March 15, 2012. We have pay plans available if anyone should need them. We have key fobs available at the front gate. The key fobs are replacing the gate cards we currently use. Just remember spring is right around the corner! I would like to wish everyone a Happy and healthy New Year.

Please, Do Not Feed the Wildlife If you think you are doing animals a favor by feeding them, think again. Attracting animals with food can be hazardous to your health. Too many people think they are doing the right thing. In the long run everyone suffers. When you feed deer in essence you are encouraging them to stop foraging for food.

P.S.C.A. Security By Capt. Robert Nurnberger Speeding continues to be a problem. I would like to remind all property owners that the speed limit on our roads is 25mph, unless otherwise posted. This past year we have had many citations issued for speeding. Many of the citations issued, have been for speeds of 40mph or more which carries a fine of $100. Whether it is a guest or contractor, the property owner is ultimately responsible for the fine, if it is not paid. We ask that you please watch your speed and advise your guests and contractors to please obey the speed limit and stop signs as well. Several people have been fined for not stopping at a stop sign. Be advised that if you have citations that have not been paid, your key fob / gate card has been deactivated. You have 30 days to pay a fine. If you would like to appeal a citation, it must be paid in order for an appeal to be scheduled with the Hearing Board.

Let Our Family Serve Your Family


Spring 2012

Christmas Eve in the Polish Tradition (Wieczerza Wigilijna) By Carol and Tom Swetz Christmas Eve starts when the first star appears, so we begin dinner at 5:30-6 p.m. The evening begins with the lighting of the candle, a prayer and the sharing of the oplatek, which is a white unleavened wafer imprinted with nativity motifs. The eldest, which could be the parent or the eldest sibling, breaks off a piece and shares it with each member starting with the oldest wishing good health, a wonderful and successful year ahead. The meal begins with a slice of homemade babka (bread) with a piece of garlic to ward off evil. The meal, which is meatless, continues with homemade borscht, which is made up of beets, potatoes, mushrooms, hard boiled eggs and sour cream. At one point in time, the soup was placed in the middle of the table in a large bowl and everyone ate from the bowl with their spoon, and it was a test to see who had the cleanest place setting. Tradition changed as new members came into the family and we now all use individual bowls. However, for those who do not eat the borscht, they have to wait for the next part of the meal until all have finished. We used to serve each part of the meal and wait for the next; but our young people cannot wait for their favorite part of the meal, which is the flounder, breaded and fried until golden, and pirogues with butter and onion. Lima beans (which no one seems to know when or why they became a part of this meal) and sauerkraut are also served. Dessert is made up of poppy seed, nut and prune logs and nut horns. Over the years all sorts of desserts are brought by other family and friends. After the meal gifts are opened. It is a the most important holiday for family as parents, children, their spouses, brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, with their significant others, gather for Polish Christmas Eve. In speaking with other Polish families, the foods may be different but the tradition seems the same. There is nothing like tradition and the younger generation promises to continue.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May you be in Heaven a half hour before the devil knows you are dead. May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

Christmas Parties By Karen Lesmeister We had two Christmas parties at Pocono Springs – one children’s party with Santa and a Christmas dinner in the evening. In addition to visiting with Santa the children decorated stockings and made a snowman candy cane holder. Ice cream was a hit too. In the evening we had a Christmas dinner and an interesting version of the 12 days of Christmas as well as other games. We hope to have more fun with everyone in 2012.

Keeping Busy in and Around Pocono Springs By Elaine McMahon After retiring from public school teaching in New York state, my husband and I moved to Pocono Springs. Our New York friends all came to visit to see our “lake house” and each in turn asked, “what do you DO here?” My first response was always, “anything we want.” Given time to think, activities here in Pocono Springs came to mind first. Clubhouse activities enabled us to meet our neighbors, many of whom became friends. There has always been an active Recreation Committee and the many members have worked countless hours to organize great activities and wonderful dinners. The Fishing Club also hosts summer dinners and fishing contests. Paddling around the lake with my camera in hand has given me many hours of pleasure and as many beautiful photographs. Sitting in the living room watching local wildlife, which includes deer, turkeys, eagles, minks, otters, beavers and bear, is another of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes our evenings are spent with friends having a meal, drinking a little wine and playing Dominos or Rummy-O. The Gouldsboro Area Foundation renovated the local train station and is always looking for new members and volunteers. They provide activities like 2 day wine trips and golf outings to raise money for their projects. Outside Pocono Springs and the Gouldsboro area there are many things to do as well. Local school districts offer free or low cost classes. For example, we enjoyed Local History classes given by Wallenpaupak and learned a lot tool. Computer courses are always available. I took some dealing with computers and photography...great! If classes are not for you, there are many performance possibilities in the area...Scranton Cultural Center offers a full line of Broadway type shows and many other concerts, lectures and productions of every kind. Some Pocono Springs residents volunteer as ushers at the Cultural Center and take advantage of the many shows and perform a much needed service to the Cultural Center. Other performance venues in Scranton are also available. Montage Mountain has the Toyota Pavilion which hosts concerts of all kinds and the Yankee AAA Farm Club plays there. The University of Scranton offers free concerts frequently and their performances are top notch. We try to attend as many as we can and enjoy them all. These performances are held in the McLean-Houlihan Center which is a beautiful old church, now a part of the University. The Kirby Center in Wilkes Barre is still another great theater. It is an original Art Deco Theater and has a full season of theater productions and concerts. We have attended several performances there and loved them. Local charities are always in need of help. Volunteers are welcome in schools, churches, hospitals and nursing homes. Food pantries and clothes closets need contributions and help to administer them. Within our own community people who live alone or are ill need help or company. A short visit could brighten their day at no cost to us. Carrying in a meal or a tray of baked goods would surely be appreciated. In addition, there are museums, galleries, parks, historic sites and restaurants of all kinds. If you ask other residents of Pocono Springs what they do here, they would probably provide even more possibilities. Keeping busy in and around Pocono Springs is not a problem for us...having time to do everything is the problem... We enjoy our community and surrounding area because we are involved!!!

P.S.C.A SECURITY REPORT • On November 17, 2011, the Security Committee had their first meeting. Hearing Board members were informed that the Hearing Board and Security Committee will be merging. Karen Shirhall read the minutes of the meeting. The committee discussed bringing back the Neighborhood Watch. Ms. Shirhall suggested having a course on report writing for all security personnel. The Board agrees. Lehigh Police will be patrolling the rear gate road and working with the Game Warden, as well as patrolling the community. Next security meeting in December and then meetings will be held bi-monthly until April. Meetings are open to all residents. OPEN BOARD DISCUSSION Daniel Galatro - Fine for not wearing a helmet while on a recreational vehicle should not be $100. It should be lowered. The rules say it should be a warning, $25, and then $50. The guard was misinformed. The ticket is wrong. The rules are mainly for the safety of children on recreational vehicles. They should get a warning. The ticket will be voided. Board members voted. From now on warnings will be given to anyone not wearing a helmet on a recreational vehicle. COMMITTEES • Buildings, Grounds & Roads – The Maintenance employees have done a great job on the road. They are filling in shoulders so that it makes it easier for them to plow during snow storms. • O.W.L. – Fracking was discussed. It is a method of fracturing rocks so that natural gas can be harnessed. They are not restricted as far as toxins go. Wayne County is allowing companies to drill for natural gas. The new lines for PP&L will go north of Pocono Springs. • Recreation – The committee met on 11/22 to discuss the Halloween Party. A second meeting was held to clean up and plan the harvest dinner. The committee would like to have two new members approved. They are Melinda Rivera and Larry Tobin. Elizabeth Knapp makes a motion to accept the new members. Edward Geisler seconds the motion.
