COMMITTEE REPORTS: Handbook Committee No report Finance Committee Doug Winter reported: Finance Committee member Paula Hepinstall is the new Chair, as John Kmetz has stepped down. The line item for FICA income taxes is up because additional taxes had to be paid from the 2019, 2020, and 2021 tax years. Great news that Viking Valley Association saved $70,000 this year by filing as a “C Corporation”, instead of filing as an HOA, due to the unusual taxable income (sale of Community Area lots, etc) we had in 2021. Regarding the two Association-owned “S” lots for sale, we have not received any sealed bids yet—bid forms are at the Office. Regarding VVA dues & assessments that were due by May 1st: of our total 1,480 total members billed, 1,000+ members have paid, and 265 are in collections.

The radio install for the Fire Dept & Safety Dept will be Monday, May 16th at 9 a.m. Campground Committee Mike Booth reported: The Campground Committee is sending out a Request for Proposal (RFP) to get price quotes on upgrading the electrical systems in both campgrounds. Flint Hibler (Chair) reported the Campground Committee said campers who are not in good standing with the Association (VVA dues paid) will be towed from the campgrounds. Lake Committee Celeste Armanees reported for Troy Lesan: Roadside inspections have been done & letters sent out giving members 30-day notice to correct the issues found, to avoid an infraction. Many members have thanked the Lake Committee for receiving this notice much sooner via a quick e-mail vs. snailmail. So if you aren’t already receiving from the office their occasional e-mails on updates, helpful reminders, etc., please do yourself a favor & submit your e-mail address to the office at This will make our communication on all fronts much more efficient & timely. Infraction Committee Mike Booth reported: The Infraction Committee met on April 30th and 16 infractions were upheld, 1 infraction was dismissed.

Maintenance area dump hours will be extended to new 2-5 p.m. beginning Memorial weekend through Labor Day weekend. The new 2022 Handbook is at the printer for a draft copy to review prior to ordering copies for members. Lastly, our Maintenance Department’s fleet of vehicles & other equipment is being reviewed by Billy Hunter to determine what can be eliminated from the fleet, to reduce insurance and other costs. Financials Doug Winter moved to approve the Financial Reports. Mike Booth seconded; motion passed. Guest Time Guest #1: Bo Steed discussed the sale of Association-owned lots. Bo shared his concern with the Board that the increased sale of lots will increase the number of boats on the water. Bo recommended that the Association stop selling lots due to the safety issues that increased boat traffic on busy weekends will impose. Guest #2: Tim Knapp discussed the cove he lives in known as “Party Cove”. Tim is concerned with the number of boats that tie up or anchor to “cove out” there. The cove is so congested that other boats cannot safely navigate around the people in the water. Tim said there are times he & his neighbors cannot get their boat out of their docks, due to the congestion. Guest #3: Vernon Humphrey discussed the roads with the Board. Vernon said Lake Viking Terrace near his house is rough due to the road not being prepped prior to the chip & seal. Vernon said there were also some large holes on 165th Street that were not fixed prior to the chip & seal as well. Board Discussions The Board of Directors discussed the mowing of lots at the lake. The individuals who come in to mow for hay each year will be allowed to continue doing this. Janet VanWye will notify the Yacht Club members of this, as the Office will not be maintaining a hay list.

The guest passes are for members to allow guests to enjoy the lake without the presence of the member. Guest passes are good for one family, and guests cannot bring additional guests. A family is defined as two parents and any children under the age of 21. Please understand that the member is responsible for the actions of their guest, regardless of the member’s presence. It is imperative that members and guest have the cards with them. Members and guests are required to present the cards when asked by safety, so please always carry the cards with you. If my staff cannot verify your identity and you don’t have your cards, you will be asked to leave. The Safety Department is looking forward to a busy and safe summer at the lake.

Janice May Humphrey 1936 – 2022

Janice May (Heath) Humphrey, 86, passed away Monday, April 18, 2022. She was born April 9, 1936 in Helena, MO to Dewey and Alma (Krause) Heath. She married Jack E. Humphrey on August 29, 1953. Janice was a very creative and talented lady- there wasn’t much she couldn’t do. She was an excellent seamstress and quilter. She made hundreds of beautiful quilts for friends and family over the years. She was a member of The Lake Viking Quilters Club for many years and mentored several high school students through the Gallatin 4-H Club. She also crocheted and knitted and taught many other skills. She was an excellent cook and loved cooking for others. Janice’s family had a very special place in her heart and the grandkids and great-grandkids could always put a smile on her face and make her day. Janice suffered a major stroke in 2016 but was able to stay at home because of the devoted care of her husband, Jack.

Imadean Rust 1932-2022

Janice was preceded in death by her parents Dewey and Alma, sisters Katherine Patrick and Marion Price, and brother Dewey Heath. Survivors include her husband Jack; children Tina Lohafer (Brian), Steve Humphrey (Lisa), Cindy Ayers (Steve); grandchildren Brooke Schesser (Heath), Keri Alloway (Anthony), Erin Lohafer, Shannon Humphrey (Lindsey), Terin Holcomb (Uriah), Brad Ayers (Jessica), Wes Ayers (Emilie), Jordan Ayers, Drew Ayers (Haley); great-grandchildren Ashlyn Alloway, Skylar Alloway, Paige Schesser, Reese Schesser, Luke Humphrey, Christopher Humphrey, Jackie Humphrey, Dani Holcomb, Braylin Ayers, Paycen Ayers, Vincent Ayers, Avery Ayers, Addison Ayers, Elliot Ayers, Ella Ayers, Dawson Ayers, Asher Ayers, Easton Ayers; greatgrand stepchild Blake Holcomb; numerous nieces and nephews. Memorial donations may be made to Helena Cemetery or American Stroke Association.

Imadean Denny Rust, age 89, met her Lord on May 10, 2022 in Warrensburg, MO. Imadean was born in 1932 to Robert and Lutie Rager in Sharon Grove, Kentucky where she grew up and was educated. She was married to James E. Rust of Russelville, KY in 1950 until his passing in 1997. Two sisters, Edna B. Waggoner and Terry L. Kirkman, also preceded her in death. Imadean is survived by her brother Charles W. Rager (Mary) of Kearney, MO, her daughter Sherry Parkhurst (Kyle) of Lake

Viking/Gallatin, MO, her son James A. Rust of Warrensburg, MO, and her granddaughter Jill M. Hill (Jay) of Renick, MO. Having lived in Windsor, MO for over 50 years, Ima was proud of having taught teens and young adults at the First Assembly of God Church. Her favorite quote which she inscribed on many students’ bibles was: “ONLY ONE LIFE WILL SOON BE PAST; ONLY WHAT’S DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST.” A sweet, southern lady, Imadean will be missed by many.

Fishing Tournament By Troy Lesan

April and May are always windy months, but this year has been ridiculous. Has there ever been a windier spring than 2022. It seemed like ferocious winds blew every day and it certainly put a damper on the Lake Viking Fishing Tournament. Out of ten entries, only four came in with fish. Pictured here are members of team McFarland, who won the tournament and Bryan Brakhage who also placed in last year’s tournament.

Cinco De Mayo It doesn’t get any better than this. VVA members always come through with great Mexican Food at this event. Once again, thanks to efforts from Activities Committee and VVA members this popular Lake Viking event proved to be a big success with over 100 in attendance, lots of good food, and $350 raised in free will donations and 50/50 drawing.

Spring is here ... and we are looking to add more mowing, spraying and maintenance clients for the 2020 mowing season.
