Handbook Committee No report

Finance Committee Troy Lesan reported: We met Thursday, November 11 online, with six members present. Financial statements were reviewed, with Shad Mort reporting on expenses still coming in on road work and silt basin construction. Otherwise, our Profit Loss report came in better than the earlier projected budget, with building permit fees income showing a particularly strong increase. In other business, our chairman John Kmetz reviewed a recommendation by Westbrook Accounting to delete Fixed Asset line items from our financial statements that Westbrook maintains. John concurs that in a system of “cash accounting” these line items are not reflected in the cash-in nor the cash-out or profit and loss. Paula Hepinstall reported on creating a new line item under Capital Expenditures which replaces the document that was a stand-alone document we’ve previously used, so Capital Expenditures will be fig-

Toys for Tots program underway

In an effort to make this holiday season a little brighter for children aged newborn to 11 years, the Gallatin Police will once again facilitate the Toys for Tots program for Gallatin and Daviess County. Chief Mark Richards has delivered collection barrels in the Gallatin area. Anyone wishing to make a donation can drop off new, unwrapped toys to any of the drop off boxes or make a monetary donation to one of the donation jars. "The Gallatin Police have been organizing the Toys for Tots program for the past 15 years," Chief Richards says. "All

children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Area businesses wishing to become a drop-off point or anyone wishing to make a monetary donation to support the program can contact the Gallatin Thank you to Len and Susan for allowingPolice our team to handle the sa Department at 660-663-3580. lake community. We also would like to welcome our new lake mem donations stay local and the program is coordinated locally. Last year, 90 families, most with two or more children, received toys." As coordinator, Chief Richards is responsible for planning, organizing and conducting the campaign. He picks up the toys and stores them in central warehouses, which for Gallatin is a donated storage unit. At Christmas, Chief Richards, with the assistance of local students from Gallatin High School and local volunteers, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children in Gallatin and Daviess County. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate

Fire Department chili event nets $2,500 By Troy Lesan

It was a win/win situation for both the Viking Valley Association Fire Department and chili lovers everywhere. Both went away satisfied. Chili lovers because of the menu that included nine different kinds of chili and the Fire Department because of the $2,500 it raised for the record amount for their fund. First Prize for the best chili went to John Thompson; Second place to Gary Buck, and Third place to Melvin Neibling. The best soup recognition went to Resa Wiltse. Best desserts first and second place went to Kathy Buck and Gail Bush. Also, as always, a big thank you to Activities Committee for their assistance.

VVA Board of Directors Meeting Dredge Committee Shad Mort reported: Phase 1 of the project is complete, and they are about to start on Phase 2 which is the stop log structures. So the first phase, the cleanout, and the new pond structure is all complete, and the road is opened back up. Lake Manager Report Shad Mort Chip & Seal Operations: Vance Brothers has pulled the plug on us early because of cold weather coming in. They were doing the Special Road District and us at the same time. The only thing we have left is Baywatch & in front of the office over to the west side of the dam. Next spring, we are on their list to be here first thing. So as a Board, we should consider for when they come back, if we’ll have new money by next spring to just go ahead and do a few more miles. This year so far we’ve already spent $112,000 on patching operations and such. We got a bill Friday for $152,000 for the chip & seal that they did (versus their bid was $170,000). So we’ve spent a total of $264,000 on roads this year. Paying for that: budget for Special Road is $53,000 + $190,000 is budgeted road money + about $20,000 - $30,000 as already approved from the building permit fees. Special Lake Projects: At Pirate & Pilot, we have been cleaning out those structures for dredging later on. We are working on getting ready to dredge for next spring. Tube Replacement: We have replaced two tubes--one major replacement at Shipyard; the other between Catfish and Campground 1. We will try to do one more on the west side of the lake, and that will be it for this year. Financials Troy Lesan moved to approve this month's financial statements.

I did not know I had either until I received my statement sent to my full-time home in Kansas City. Troy Lesan moved to dismiss the infraction ticket & reimburse him the $80 due to clerical error.

Trunk or Treat Extravaganza By Troy Lesan

This event sets another example of clever innovation by our activities committee. Folks pull up to the VVA parking lot in their cars, trucks, and even trailers, open up the trunks or tailgates, and unveil their respective inventories of goodies to the exited kids, and yes, parents and grandparents. The beautiful weather helped as over 80 kids attended this event. Fire Chief/ VVA President Tony Gronniger – with his pick-up loaded with little red plastic fire-hats – was a hit with the kids. And meanwhile, there were actually long lines of folks waiting to experience Jer-

ry and Melissa Goehring’s Willy Wonka GobStopper Machine. The extraordinary fall weather helped contribute to the popularity of this event as well as other activity around the lake. A generous contribution from a person at Campground One resulted in a House of Horrors display that was open to the public later in the afternoon. All in all, the Halloween Day capped off an excellent fall season was part of an excellent year of Lake Viking Activities.

Melissa Goehrings “trunk” was a favorite stop.

It’s Wonder Woman! Wyatt and Olivia loaded up on candy all afternoon! Marvin McNabb’s grandchildren checking out the scene.

“The Jokers”

A face that only a mother could love.

No Halloween would be complete without pirates.
