VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Call to Order Tony Gronniger, lot 2281, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the clubhouse at 6:30pm. Board members present were: Marvin McNabb, lot 28; Mike Booth, lot 2380; Allan Slavin, lot 181; Celeste Armanees, lot 62; Mark Leggett, lot S165. Absent was Troy Lesan, lot 576. Allen Slavin led in prayer. Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Tony Gronniger opened the meeting with the Vision/Mission Statement: “Lake Viking is a private lake aspiring to preserve our community and environment for future generations.” “Our informed members are the strength of our community.” Approval of Last Month’s Minutes Celeste Armanees moved to approve last month’s minutes, Allan Slavin seconded; motion passed. Handbook Committee No report Finance Committee Celeste Armanees reported: We met Thursday, December 9th online with 7 members present and guest Tony Gronniger. The bulk of the meeting was a presentation by Patrick Roth, our Morgan Stanley investment representative.

Morgan Stanley: We did a thorough annual review of VVA’s investment portfolio. As you recall, in February this year, the Finance Committee began a 3-bucket approach of investing our money. Bucket 1: currently $7,000 invested, is cash-on-hand for immediate needs, like a checking account to pay the next few month’s bills. Bucket 2: currently $1.4 million invested, is for short-term needs in the next twelve months, e.g. our massive silt basin project. Bucket 3: currently $285,000 invested, is for long-term needs, so ideally we’ll never touch it unless e.g. the dam breaks or some unexpected problem arises. The Morgan Stanley representative, Patrick Roth, presented for a half-hour on this total $1.6 invested at Morgan Stanley, as detailed above in the three different funds or “buckets”. He confirmed for us that each bucket is getting the approximate return on investment that we expected, resulting in an overall 1.6% yield, after the company’s maintenance fees. This overall 1.6% yield on our total $1.6 million invested = $25,000/year “profit” or yield to VVA. So why, you ask, our low 1.6% return vs. the Dow-Jones being up an impressive 15% return? It’s because we purpose-

Volume 34, No. 8

December 12, 2021 ly invested in LOW-risk securities, NOT high-risk stocks like the Dow-Jones. We the Finance Committee back in February invested your money in the “safest” way possible, with low risk. Vs. Alternatively, we could change to a moderate-to-high risk strategy. The danger of high risk, of course, is that though you get big gains in a bull market, you also risk big losses in a bear market. Being good stewards or fiduciaries of VVA's money, we back in February chose the safer more cautious route of selecting LOW-risk investments for VVA's money; hence the low % return. Still, this investment gave VVA $25,000/year more "profit" than VVA has EVER generated, because VVA in the past had most (not all) of this money "under a mattress" not invested @ almost zero return. So generating approx $25,000/year every year profit is major progress for VVA. However, in future months, we may revisit this low-risk strategy, or more likely just transfer more money into the higher-performing bucket (after we complete the silt basin project), for a higher but still relatively low-risk % return. Taxes: We anticipate a high tax bill coming April 15th due to selling several, Community Area (CA) lots this year, with capital gains tax due on it next year. This is the same scenario we had last year, just less so. You'll recall this happened bigtime in the year 2020 when we sold the most CA lots; it's true again now just less so in 2021 when we sold a few CA lots. Budget: The year-to-date November 2021 Financial Statements were reviewed & appear correct. The Morgan Stanley balances discussed above already reflect a $170,000 withdrawal which paid the contractor for major road expenses & also paid year-end personal property taxes. Also reflected was an additional $250,000 out of Morgan Stanley transferred to BTC Bank to cover year-end operating expenses & more Silt Basin phase two expenses. Projected budget: Due to the changing landscape of finalizing year-end numbers, the final 2021 year-end budget & approval of next year's 2022 budget will be presented at January's Board meeting.

VVA Board of Directors Meeting Accounts Receivable: Paula Hepinstall reported that Westbrook is currently flowing "uncollectable Receivables" through Special Assessments line 4100. Instead, they are now creating a new Gain/Loss income account for clearing Accounts Receivable. New Committee member: The Finance Committee unanimously approved recommending that the Board of Directors add George Eshnaur to the Finance Committee. George has an extensive Finance background, with a Master’s degree in Finance. He is currently the Assistant Professor of Finance & Dean of Faculty at Ottawa University in Ottawa, KS. George & his wife & kids live in K.C. and spend most weekends here at their home in Lake Viking. At this time, I'd like to ask for a motion from the Board to add George Eshnaur to the Finance Committee. Marvin McNabb moved to approve the addition of George Eshanur to the Finance Committee, Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed. Strategic Planning Committee No report Activities Committee Celeste Armanees reported: The Activities Committee included in the Board members’ binder the proposed Activities calendar of events for 2022. We have added to the past year’s calendar: an additional Fishing Tournament–so one in March & one in September. You’ll recall the money raised from that event was donated back to restock the lake w/ fish. The proposed Activities calendar would also add a “Local Bands Jam-Off” sometime in summer. Celeste Armanees motioned to approve the Activities Calendar for 2022, Tony Gronniger seconded; motion passed. SEE the ‘22 ACTIVITIES CALENDAR on page 7! Building Committee Marvin McNabb reported: A total of 9 permits were approved in the month of November–no houses. Fire Department Tony Gronniger reported: The Fire Dept. met as usual. This month we re-reg-

istered our department with the county’s Mutual Aid Agreement. It’s an annual occurrence–we give help to them, they give help to us. We also reviewed year-end expenditures & we have some money leftover in the operating budget for the Fire Dept, so we ordered 2 med bags for each of the Safety vehicles. We also had some extra money in the air bottle fund, so we ordered 4 radios–3 for Safety & 1 for the Fire Dept. Campground Committee Mike Booth reported: In both Campgrounds, the campsites have been re-numbered. Lake Committee No report Infraction Committee No report (next meeting in spring). Dredge Committee Shawn Hepinstall reported: Phase 1 of the ponds on the south side is complete; Phase 2 will start shortly. I spoke with our contractor, who said he will be here Monday morning to continue the work. They are saying by mid-January they will have all the concrete and everything poured. After that is finished, our team will put in the stop log braces, etc. So we will be ready to go when the weather breaks this spring to begin dredging. If you haven’t noticed, the dredge is staying in the water this winter, so as soon as weather permits we will begin dredging! For 2022, we’ll focus on erosion control & clean-up on the south side. Lake Manager Report - Shad Mort 1. Chip and Seal Operations: I double-checked with Vance Brothers to make sure we are first on their list to complete our roads next spring. 2. Special Lake Projects: Pirate & Pilot work is being completed, as well as the 3-Tubes project. They are moving forward. 3. Tube Replacement: I hope to have 1 more tube replacement done in the next few weeks. This will be the last one until spring. Financials Celeste Armanees motioned to approve this month's Financial Statements, Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed.

Marvin McNabb seconded; motion passed. Board Discussion 1. Nominating Committee: Mark Leggett commented that we’ll have 2 open seats on the BOD, and some potential candidates–1 candidate for sure is going to run. I hope to have this all out together by early January, for voting at the Annual Meeting in March. 2. IT Discussion: We are going forward with a $200 router & a Cloudbased server in the Office. It will be ready to go by early January. 3. Managing Director: Tony Gronniger stated that the Board has been searching for the past 6-8 months looking for the right candidate. Of 10 applicants, we interviewed 2 very strong candidates. It is now my pleasure to announce that Cathy Poindexter, lot 1127/1128 is Lake Viking’s new Managing Director, whose job is to oversee “all things Lake Viking” (5-page Job Description) starting January 1, 2022. 4. Expansion of hours at Maintenance Area for trash disposal: The dumpsters are now available 3 pm - 5 pm, seven days a week. Mark Leggett explained that this change to ONLY supervised hours is due not to the actions of one person, but due to this privilege being abused (dumping of furniture, refrigerators, and other illegal items) primarily by our LV community as a whole, and even some non-member outsiders who were using our dumpsters– all causing our trash costs to soar. Our trash costs are now back under control. Adjourn Tony Gronniger moved to adjourn to Executive Session to discuss Personnel & Board organizational matters at 7:13 pm. Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed. Attendance Paula & Shawn Hepinstall, lot 543; Sandy Moles, lot 2039; Mark & Stephanie Closterman, lot 1900; David Sandy, lot Z-9; Cathy Poindexter, lot 1127.

Stay Safe … Below are a few tips for Winter … • Clean your chimney before building a fire; • Warm up your car outside, not in the garage; • Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning … headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain and confusion; • Make an emergency kit for your car; including water, snacks, first-aid kit, blankets, flashlights, extra batteries, cell phone charger and emergency flares. • Use floor mats inside and outside your doors; • Remove ice and snow from walkways frequently to prevent slips and falls; and • Don’t forget to walk like a penguin when navigating the snow.

By Troy Lesan Lake Viking Resident, Cathy Poindex-

ter, has accepted the position of Managing Director of the Viking Valley Association. She will begin her duties on January 1, 2022. Cathy has been a full-time lake resident for four years and has been around the lake her entire life. Cathy and her husband, Chad, have two children, Nathan and Kiley. Nathan is 22 years old and currently serves in the United States Marine Corp. Kiley is 17 years old and is a Senior at Gallatin High School. Chad has owned and operated Bestway Seamless Guttering since 2014. Prior to coming to Lake Viking, Cathy worked as City Clerk at Maysville then worked in Public Safety for 19 years. She worked for the Cameron Police Department for 16 of those years and held positions of Communications Supervisor, 911 Coordinator, Terminal Agency Coordinator, and District Training Coordinator. During her employment at Maysville, Cathy prepared annual budgets and financial statements, drafted ordinances, attended Board Meetings, and did payrolls and accounts payable and receivable. During her time in law enforcement, she took an active role in streamlining the 911 service into the present day configuration that results in a cost efficient regional operation. Cathy assumes the newly created position of Managing Director as the final phase of a VVA staff re-organization that has resulted in several newly hired employees, and a re-alignment of responsibilities. Previously the Lake Manager position, which has been held by Shad Mort for 17 years and by Robert Feigley for many years before that, was a maintenance oriented position. Starting in 2022, the Managing Director job will be from an administrative perspective with Billy Hunter serving as the Maintenance Manager and Shad Mort moving into a contract consultant role where the VVA will still be able to benefit from his expertise in dredging and roads. Cathy looks forward to continuing to work for the VVA. You might say that she is third generation Lake Viking. Her grandparents owned a lot here, and her parents Justin and Connie Hines have resided in a house here for many years. Cathy looks forward to working with the staff and members of the Viking Valley Association.

Another gem from Gallatin Theater League By Troy Lesan Before we go any further, one fact of this story is a certainty – Mr. Boddy is doomed. He’s gonna fall victim to foul play. His problem is he’s made too many enemies – and he knows it. But before we panic and call 911, we should know that it’s only a play. The best kind of a play, because it’s another uproarious production presented by Gallatin Theater League. The title, Clue, is based on the classic Parker Brothers game that has been around forever. I even played it when I was a kid. Yes, Mr. Boddy’s past is catching up to him. He is surrounded by a gathering of rather sordid characters whom he has cheated, swindled, and betrayed – and the characters are all under one roof in various rooms – Conservatory, Lounge, Billiard Room etc. And they have plenty of weapons at their disposal: candlestick, revolver, knife – just like the board game – as they plot their revenge. The beauty of this play is in the characters who are the suspects: Miss Green (played by Erin Stith) is a dizzy blond who butchers the English language and hopes to butcher Mr. Boddy. Mrs. White (Emily Anderson) is a knife wielding cook. Miss Scarlett (County Attorney Annie Gibson) joins Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard (Jackie and Doug Nichols) as veteran GTL performers who are all experienced masters of comedy. Miss Professor Plum (Emily Miller), the Detective (Phil Barnard), and piano player Emily Mast round out the list of suspects. Mr. Boddy (Dimitri Dickerson) acts as the capable narrator as the others plot and scheme against him. So the big question is whodunit? But the answer isn’t so simple. The skill of the GTL cast is such that they present a different ending on each of the three nights of the play. The Gallatin Theater League does many things well, but Comedy is their specialty, and this is once again apparent in Clue. The GTL has been in existence, now, for 37 years. We have watched their productions for nearly twenty years, along with many other Lake Viking Association Members who can be seen at the theater. Their performanc-

es are big events. The city of Gallatin provides a big turnout, and I’m also amazed at how many in the audience are from the different communities in the area. Word has definitely spread: the Gallatin Theater League is local crown jewel who entertains, amuses, and always puts on a great show. We always look forward to their productions. Can’t wait for their next show.

Miss. Green casts a spell on Mr. Boddy.

The cast of Clue; Mrs. White is armed and dangerous.

Frances Lillian (Vanover) Whitt 1914-2021

Frances Lillian (Vanover) Whitt was a caring daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother, greatgreat-grandmother, and friend. She peacefully left this world on December 3, 2021 at the age of 107 years, 3 months, and 5 days. Frances was born in rural Gallatin, Missouri to George Thomas and Janettie Alice (Hoyle) Vanover on August 28, 1914. She was the sixth child of seven children, all of whom preceded her in death. On January 3, 1932 Frances married Clyde M. Jackson. To this Union five children were born, four of which preceded her in death as well as her husband Clyde in 1961. Frances had an uncanny ability to find happiness in her life. On January 21, 1963 she married Elmer Scott Whitt. Frances first met Elmer in 1962 when he purchased the first of many Restaurants. It was “Love at First Sight” and for the remainder of their time together she worked alongside Elmer every step of the way. The simplest of pleasures brought joy to Frances. Being with family always came first. Working in the garden, canning, planting flowers, selling Avon, working late hours during snow storms and visiting with everyone. She was renowned for her cooking and baking skills. Everyone in and around Daviess County knew they would have plenty of homemade delicious food to eat at the Dinner Bell Café. She will be missed by people of many generations. Frances is survived by daughter-Shirley June Hancock, Sioux City, Iowa; Grandchildren-Tony (Christy) Josta, Homer, Nebraska; Jeannie Franklin; Linda (Keith) Munter; Heidi (Matt) Montgomery, Sioux City, Iowa; and Jenny (Matthew) Handlos, Omaha, Nebraska; 11 Grandchildren; 21 Great-Grandchildren; 18 Great-Great Grandchildren; Beloved Nieces and Nephews; Great and Great-Great Nephews and Nieces. Loved ones that cleared the path for Frances are her parents-Tom and Nettie Vanover; brothers-Edward, Russell, and Lloyd Vanover; sistersMary Keleher Ruby Ramsbottom and Mid Welch; husbands-Clyde Jackson and Elmer Whitt; Children-Frances Lucille Jackson-Patsy Clydene Graves-Marvin Lloyd Jackson and Danny Jay Jackson; Great Grandchildren- Anthony C. Josta, April Ann Josta, and Johnathan Munter. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Active Aging Resource Center in care of the funeral home.

Lake Viking is private property, but all lots are owned by some other individual. Please do not drive or ride ATV vehicles or bicycles on neighboring lots, or walk across lots to fish or use others’ property without first getting the property owner’s permission.
